Deputy Scot Petersen was outside when the shooting started. and he, apparently, stayed outside.
If one is gonna take the role of protector, then one should, indeed, be a protector.
Now, instead, he’s branded as a coward. I find it hard to believe that any man could not try to intervene, but would instead cower outside. Admittedly, this happened very quickly, but he could have at least TRIED.
I find it odd, cops are usually better than this. But if fits with the rest of THIS. Just one more of those odd coincidences that keep popping up.
