Florida Cop Who Hid Behind a Car During School Shooting Gets His Job Back

By

Opinion| Conjecture| According to reports, a sheriff’s sergeant fired for hiding behind his vehicle throughout the Parkland school bloodbath has acquired his job back — along with at least $125,000 back-pay!

Sgt. Brian Miller was one among four deputies fired for “neglect of duty” from the 2018 massacre at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 students and faculty members dead and 17 others wounded.

Miller had been the first supervisor on scene, however, he put on his bulletproof vest and hid behind his car, and he didn’t even reach for his radio for 10 minutes, a lifetime in a shooting situation, rather than taking command, a state commission investigation discovered.

“Miller failed to coordinate or direct deputies’ actions and did not direct or coordinate an immediate response into the school,” a report from the commission said at the time, calling his actions “ineffective.”

Broward County Sheriff’s Office fired him last June, however, an arbitrator has ruled that his due process rights had been violated, the South Florida Sun Sentinel revealed late Wednesday.

This guy was making over $137,000 a year when he was fired, which means Florida taxpayers may owe this bum at least $125,000 in back pay for being fired for cowardice in the line of duty.
