Prosecutors want access to his medical records.

He is shown of Facebook with a cast on his wrist.

He apparently cut it off himself before the shootings.

This would show premeditation.

Defense attorneys naturally object siting his right to privacy.

Judge will rule next week.
Facebook's lawyers are in federal court right now claiming that when you use Facebook you have no expectation of privacy whatsoever, that is a public square and anything you put there can be looked at by anyone.

I think the Peterson case will be lost eventually. The federal judge was correct, law enforcement officers have no duty to protect any individual. That's long-standing SCOTUS case law. It's also correct. If the Court were to have held differently, it wouldn't be long before every city and county would be in bankruptcy court.

Chas.
Well, there is an obligation, a special duty, for LE to protect some individuals. Those in custody, for example. The judge in this case apparently decided that there is no special duty for LE to protect children attending a public school. I don't think school children fall in the same bucket as Joe Schmoe walking down the street, particularly when there are numerous laws and public funds involved requiring those children to be there.

But this holding of no constitutional duty to protect (which IIRC the SCOTUS has held at least 19 times in various circumstances) should mean that the right to self-defense, particularly with a firearm, should be constitutionally holy, superseding such eye wash as "sensitive places" and the like.

A Florida state commission investigating the February shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that left 17 people dead recommended on Wednesday that teachers who undergo proper training be allowed to carry firearms at schools.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the state legislature pass the proposal. The recommendation calls for teachers who would be armed to undergo a background check and proper training.
As Instapundit said, "David Hogg hardest hit."

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

Head of state commission investigating the Parkland shooting, Sheriff Gualtieri of Pinellas County, is quoted by NYT reporter as saying:

"If he had somebody in there with a gun, they could have mitigated this," the sheriff said. "There were opportunities for staff to have intervened if they had been armed."

The murderer had to reload several times and the sheriff notes there were several times when the rifle was empty.

Roundly vilified for not entering a Parkland high school during a mass shooting, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson insisted publicly that he believed that gunfire was happening outside on campus — not from inside the building.

But internal radio dispatches released by the sheriff's office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.”
