Felicia Burgin, a ninth-grade English teacher at Stoneman Douglas, came to Peterson's defense on Thursday, arguing that the officer could not have stopped the shooter, who was armed with an assault rifle.
She's feeling confused, devastated and a range of emotions.
Finally, she received a text from her sister that she was hiding in a closet in a building across campus. He took him to the baseball clubhouse where the student gave "tremendous descriptions" of the shooter's clothing and location. "Because they didn't want to let Feis down". "That was just the most relieving thing ever", Schneid, who graduated from Douglas in 2017, said. She said she won't forget the names of the politicians who 'wouldn't vote to keep me safe, ' and she will use her vote to get rid of them. I've been there almost every day since the shooting.
In the seven days that have followed the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people, students from the Florida campus have moved from terror to grief to activism, inspiring a national youth-led protest against political inaction on gun reform. The shooting lasted about six minutes. The school's flags flew at half-staff, and the parking lot was still full of bicycles left behind in a panic as students fled the shooting on foot.
Those students, who rapidly turned themselves into activists and organizers after 17 of their fellow students and teachers were murdered in their school, have become the most visible face of this new phase of the gun debate, and conservatives are absolutely livid about it.
The school district, calling this an "emotional and hard recovery process", is also holding a voluntary campus orientation for students and parents Sunday afternoon. "My focus is on bringing in law enforcement", he said.
The plan outlines a $50 million allocation for mental health initiatives, including the expansion of mental health service teams, a Department of Children and Families case manager embedded in every sheriff's department, and matching grants for sheriff's offices to set up special law enforcement teams to work with DCF case managers.
There are between 14,000 and 20,000 such officers in the USA, according to the National Association of School Resource Officers.
Scott also called for a mandatory implementation of active-shooter "code red" drills at the beginning of each semester at public schools. Before leaving the airport terminal to come back to campus, Brafman opened her computer and made a decision to begin planning the is the Nashville March for Our Lives.
Law enforcement officials who reviewed the video say Peterson arrived at the west side of Building 12, where most of the killing happened.
Feis, an assistant football coach and security guard at the school of 3,200 students on the edge of the Florida Everglades, was among 17 gunned down by a former student who police said returned to the school with an AR 15 assault-style rifle just before dismissal on February 14. "Everyone has just been so unbelievable and there's a great support system out there for me". She is also in contact with the organizers of the 2018 Tennessee Women's March who have been advising her as she begins nailing down the details of where the event will occur, what kind of permits are needed and other parts of a demonstration that she didn't even know she needed. Mr Scott said they would be sheriff's deputies or police officers, downplaying a proposal - embraced by Donald Trump - to arm teachers.
