Coward of Broward cop now gets $8K-a-month pension

Disgraced Florida massacre cop now gets $8K-a-month pension

Quote:
Peterson, 55, was widely criticized for his actions, and Broward Sheriff Scott Israel opened an internal investigation. The deputy resigned and retired on Feb. 23 “rather than face possible termination.”

Peterson, the Sun-Sentinel reported, has received a monthly state pension of $8,702.35 since April. He was paid $101,879.03 last year, according to the news outlet, which cited sheriff’s office records.

Pretty much how government service works when you do as your told. 8K a month is just about what dems would pay if you stand back and watch as 17 kids are murdered. They turned the killings into real campaign funds, into the millions and launched a gun grab along with it so ya 8 k was a good deal for them.

Edited to add, if he would have done his job the entire story would be different but no money to be made.

Look, HE WAS TOLD BY THE FBI, THAT THE KID WAS COMING OUT THE DOOR he was at,.......... AND TO PLUG HIM THERE."

The kid took an alternate route out, an exit that made more sense.

The FBI is the gang that cannot shoot straight, half the time, as the Boston Bomber case demonstrates......he was their guy too.

Very Very Very True....What a sad state of affairs. He will also work some under the counter details to top that 8K a month income. I would not be shocked if there is some sort of dissability claim filed in the future that is realated to the shooting as well by him to up the pension.

Jim, ya gotta remember these creatures aren't like us. He could live forever and the shame of what he did/failed to do would never enter his mind. Hell, the very idea of shame is as alien to his way of thinking as, well, aliens.

Yes, but cops are special citizens that get extra privileges, such as bearing arms that us mere "civilians" shall not be allowed, as well as a lifetime income.

Cops are heroes and are special.

That is all you need to know.

He should give that pension to the parents of the kids he failed if he had a soul. Hell is awaiting him and you can buy your way to hell.

Well to be honest the citizens of Broward county should be the ones. It is not realistic to expect a soulless critter like him to do it. And it's beginning to look to me like he's a pretty common type down there because the county did in fact give it to him in the first place.

Oregon PERS has the "Police/Fire Extra" that can be paid into. Tier one PERS with this option usually retires at GREATER than 100% of salary....sometimes much greater.

I knew this. If you were a slob looking at a pension of these magnitude, ya think you would really have put on the line for a bunch of kids? He should have been fired but no way with the gub unions

Well I know retired Federal LEOs with 20 years of service, all GS12s or above and not a one of them are pulling 8K a month pensions, my father included.

When school resource patrols started up they were mostly either really young guys. 20 odd thousand a month position usually filled by the so-called Clinton Cops.

$100K
nope that's so far over the top it's hard to even fathom.

Maybe Broward County does their retirement like LA Fire Department does their retirement. Retirement pay is based on final base pay plus any unused sick pay and vacation time that is sold when they retire.

I think 60 Minutes did an episode on how these firemen were hoarding their vacation and sick leave in order to sell it before their retirement thus boosting their final retirement pay. Their retirement pay wound up being more than their active duty pay.

Yes could well be however that still doesn't answer how some dick sitter in a school is getting paid above administrative wages to begin with

100K+ is serious money
thing is you can damn well bet he isn't the only Broward County Cop bleeding the tax payers with an offensively high salary for what the public is receiving in return from them.

I have never considered LE in the same class as say a Doctor

Hell, that's a better Pension payout than a Three Star General

Chew on this a bit:
Senate pensions average between forty to seventy odd grand a year. A few long term members can go over 100K but that's very rare.
Remember, that's a damn US Senator.

Maybe all the firemen and police pensions should be like the military’s; based on final base pay only. No sick leave, vacation time, and holiday pay thrown into the retirement pay calculation.

Taxpayers would save a bundle but of course the unions in these Democratic strongholds would be pissed and probably won’t contribute to the Democratic politicians and of course the Democratic Party voters in those districts are too stupid to realize that they are being fleeced by the police/fire unions.

There is no way a retired cop who sat on his ass and let 17 kids get killed should get any kind of pension. He should have been fired.

Broward County has to be screwed up as this POS cop got to retire on a more than full pension while the two SWAT cops from a different jurisdiction, who were the first cops to enter the school, are suspended, under investigation and will probably be punished further for disobeying orders to stay outside. SMDH

I hope the kid’s family who is suing him gets all his money.

I'm not ever going to be willing to go that far Mebs
most County LEOs live on pretty meager pensions, really shitty even. That's why this shocks me. Remember this clown was a mere Deputy. In my County he would be 30 to 40K at best which is realistic considering local salaries are sub 50K for a Deputy.

I tend to agree with Gman, we should be paying LEOs more. I would pay a bit more for high quality canidates and pay for that by employing less of them
that said, 100K is stuck on stupid for a patrolman's salary

Maybe as well as being a coward, he was a smart investor. Maxed out his deferred comp every paycheck, and ate ramen noodles instead of steak. Avoided divorce and child support.

He needs to enjoy his pension while it lasts until the unavoidable civil suits break him, since he is no longer has city attornies or his job providing coverage.

Duh Broward Coward was making $75k base, but the up-their-own-arse Demon-crap "formula" allows overtime and etc. to be "factored" in...

... fugger this close to pension day should've been dispatching or otherwise riding a desk. Not excusing what he failed to do, just saying that after surviving 33 years in this "multi-cultural" transient cesspool known as So-Fla, this kind of behavior this close to retirement should've been predicted by the #1 fug-up in this equation, SCOTT "4-star" ISRAEL, pretend-sheriff.

OTOH, this *is* a "high cost-of-living" metro area, catching up with Kommiefornia every damned day...

Okay, we won't cut off the police and emergency, but the police have to do some PT, take care of themselves and try to eat right.
