The CBC recently reported:

“That deputy, identified as the school’s assigned resource officer, Scot Petersen, has resigned rather than face suspension and possible dismissal after his actions were caught on video during the massacre, the sheriff acknowledged last week.

News outlets including CNN and NBC have since reported that at least three more armed Broward County sheriff’s deputies were present on the scene, taking cover behind their vehicles instead of immediately going into the school.”

This prompts me to ask:

  1. What happens if the “good guy with a gun” decides not to take action? We’re left only with the “bad guy with a gun.” 
  2. If a trained police officer is hesitant to take action, then what should we expect from a school teacher?
