Peterson's actions on February 14 are under review after surveillance video outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School showed him waiting to enter the school as the gunman sprayed bullets from his AR-15.
"This infuriates me in ways people can not comprehend", the grieving father tweeted. "My daughter would still be alive if this person did his job", Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was among 17 people shot dead inside the Parkland, said on Twitter.
Peterson attracted controversy after surveillance footage showed that Peterson, who was the resource deputy stationed at the high school, stood outside the building as gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire.
The pension amounts are figured via a formula from his regular salary plus overtime; the Sun-Sentinel reports he received $101,879 in the last year of his 32 years of police service. Pollack has also targeted Peterson for collecting the hefty monthly pension.
He added that instead of Peterson receiving that money, it should go towards scholarships for wounded students or school safety but added, "There's nothing we can do about it". He hid while my daughter and 16 others were slaughtered!

"He's wearing a bulletproof vest. while school security guards, coaches pretty much, were running in shielding kids", Huff said. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel publicly criticized the deputy, saying that he should have gone inside and confronted the gunman, and even President Donald Trump weighed in to call Peterson a coward.
The probe into Peterson's response is ongoing, a sheriff's office spokeswoman told the Sun-Sentinel.
