Peterson was thrown under the bus by Sheriff Scott Israel, who said at the time that the deputy should have "went in".
Surveilance video from February 14 showed Peterson waiting outside the school while the shooter went through the halls with an AR-15 rifle shooting and killing students and teachers.
Scot Peterson, the deputy who was captured on video hiding outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School building as shooter Nikolas Cruz tore up the inside and killed 17, has been granted a pension - a taxpayer-funded pension - of $8,702 per month.
What was the response to Peterson receiving his pension?
Peterson began to receive his pension in April, according to the Florida Department of Management Services.
Peterson earned more than $101,000 in his final year as a sheriff's deputy through a combination of regular pay plus overtime and other compensation. Before the pension payments began, the Department of Management Services asked Broward State Attorney Michael Satz about Peterson, but Satz's office said it had no information to provide and referred questions to FDLE.
Senior Brandon Huff claimed he saw Peterson standing outside behind a stairwell wall, gun drawn "just pointing it at the building" as shots erupted from inside the school.
Despite Peterson's cowardly actions, his former employer has continued to support him, stating, "the allegations that Mr. Peterson was a coward and that his performance, under the circumstances, failed to meet the standards of police officers are patently untrue".
Pollack has also targeted Peterson for collecting the hefty monthly pension.
According to the state pension handbook, Peterson's pension payments are based on the "total number of years he worked and the average of his five highest-paid fiscal years".
Fred Guttenberg and Andrew Pollack, two fathers whose children were killed in the shooting, slammed Peterson for still being paid despite his inaction. That money should go to actually securing our schools!
