You're not quoting me correctly. What I wrote earlier was that like many "I hope so" and believe I'd do the right thing when called to do it and especially if it was a pledge I made to 'protect and serve' others.1911 Raptor wrote:I don’t think you have any room to criticize since in another thread you stated you wouldn’t help anyone unless they were a family member. You also stated you would turn in your guns if asked to do so by the government. Maybe you and the deputy share the same beliefs when it comes to risking lives when it isn’t a family member who is involved.TheFriscoKid wrote:I too thought he would be the 18th victim until I read that he felt he did a "good job" that day.rotor wrote: I would guess he is a high suicide risk.
His analysis of his performance sickens me almost as much as his failure.
Only thing worse than a coward is a delusional coward.

The parents of the dead and injured children will be paying for his retirement.
"schlub" is a good term. ( talentless, unattractive, boorish person, clumsy, or oafish)
Are you going to delete this thread as well since someone remembers your previous statements regarding not getting involved and defending someone who might be in trouble?
What I wrote was that in the context of my life and family is that my number one duty is protect my family. This could unfold in many ways, if that means to take the shot or engage the assailant then that's what I would do. I never wrote that I wouldn't defend others because I have in the past and have almost paid the price for it.
I agree with everything Charles wrote - the guy was a fraud - but that fraud should have been apparent to anyone that knew Peterson. He clearly wasn't equipped and in the mental or psychological state to live up the the responsibility he'd been given. He should have seen it and his supervisors should have seen it.
But he had a cush job, hanging out with kids from the right side of the fence and collecting hazard pay while other deputies raided drug dealers, dealt with the random dangers of traffic stops and domestic disputes. Nope - just the schools.
But most of all I stopped feeling any empathy for the guy when after the fact he felt he did a 'good job'.
