BREAKING: Surveillance Video Released of Parkland Shooting—Does Not Show Shooter

Rachel Blevins–More than 27 minutes of surveillance footage has been released from security cameras at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, for the purpose of showing former deputy Scot Peterson standing outside of the building, while students and teachers were murdered inside.

In response to the actions of the armed school resource officer, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the footage “speaks for itself.

“His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on Feb. 21. After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination,” a statement from the department noted.

According to the time stamp on the video, the footage begins at 2:22 p.m. on Feb. 14, less than one minute before police claim that suspect Nickolas Cruz opened fire inside the freshman building.

In the video, Peterson can be seen running towards a golf cart at about the same time the first 911 call was made to Coral Springs Police reporting a shooting. He then runs to another side of the building, and the surveillance footage changes to a different angle of the building.

It was during that time that Peterson reportedly said over his police radio, “Be advised we have possible, could be firecrackers, I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired—1200 building.”

According to a timeline of the shooting from the Sun Sentinel, Cruz was picked up by an Uber at 2:06 p.m. and dropped off at the school at 2:19 p.m. He then entered the freshman building at 2:21 p.m.

The shooting reportedly lasted 7 minutes, which included enough time for a freshman student named Chris McKenna to find Cruz loading his rifle, and then to flee to get help when Cruz told him, “things are gonna start getting messy.”

The school confirmed that Cruz exited the building at 2:28 p.m. and blended in with other students who were fleeing campus. A teacher at the school who witnessed the shooting said she initially thought the shooter was a police officer because he was dressed in full body armor, and was carrying a rifle she had never seen before.

Given that he may have set off more warning signs if he had been fully clothed in body armor when he was riding in an Uber or entering the school, the timeline gives Cruz just 7 minutes to load his rifle, put on his body armor, shoot 31 people, discard the gun and the body armor and then exit the building.

The surveillance footage released by the Broward County Sheriff’s office ends at 2:50 p.m., and while it does show some students walking by as they exit the building, it fails to show Cruz entering or exiting—details that would arguably help to put the public’s mind at ease.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, it has been one month since the shooting occurred, and even though 17 innocent people were killed, the surveillance footage that has just been released serves as a reminder that some of the most glaring questions and inconsistencies are the ones that both law enforcement and the mainstream media refuse to address.

What the release of this footage highlights is the insulting attempt to appease the public and media’s demands for actual video that shows the actual crime. Until this is released, authorities in Florida are doing an injustice the victims and their families alike.

  1. Stupid question: “Where is the evidence that this nutty kid actually did the shootings?”
    Stupid response: Cue the self-righteous outrage for even asking such an audacious thing. “How dare demand ask for concrete evidence?”

    1. Sorry Joe you’re being a conspiracy theorist,(sarc) why would you ask for that shit( because you have critical thinking). BTW where is the Las Vegas Oct 1st shooting video or the 5 days before video of the shooter , I mean fk Vegas is the most surveilled city in the world. we have days before where he ordered food for 2? Who was the second person?

  2. About three weeks before the “shooting”, the U.S. Secret Service dropped by and changed the security arrangements of the high school. An expert with decades of experience said that he had never even HEARD of the Secret Service changing a school’s security plan. (1) Some students heard that there would be a Code Red drill on the same day as the”shooting”, with the police firing blanks, screaming and “victims” being carried away. What are the chances that someone would shoot-up the school on the same day?

    Four or five different students have said on video that there was more than one shooter. One
    girl said she was talking to the alleged shooter, Nicolas Cruz, whom she knew, as they were all leaving the building and that she heard shooting shortly afterwards from the other side of the building. One girl said she was hiding in a cabinet and saw two shooters go by in the hall. A third girl said emphatically that there were three shooters. A teacher said she saw a gunman 20 feet away wearing full SWAT-type body armor and a face mask. The shooting supposedly started about one minute after Cruz entered the building after leaving an UBER. The shooting lasted about six minutes. When did he have time to change in and out of a SWAT-like outfit that the teacher saw. He was captured in regular street clothes. I have not seen ANY effort by the police to address the issue of possible multiple gunmen.

    Four men dressed in black were videotaped from a helicopter leaving the back door of the building carrying a large heavy bag which they dumped into an UNMARKED white pickup truck and then drove off. Who were they? Were they police? If not police, what were they doing in the building? Were they
    part of a drill and did they fire blanks? Did the heavy bag contain their weapons and SWAT-style gear? (2) Two girls said on video that there was “weird dust” or “gunpowder” on the hallway and stairwell floors, which could have been left by the cotton wadding found in some blank cartridges, which is blown to dust when the blank is fired. (3)(4)

    The student activist, David Hogg, whose father is a former FBI agent and whose mother, Rebecca Boldrick, is a CNN VIP and an anti-Trump activist (5), taped what he said was an interview in a closet DURING the shooting. He announced at the beginning of the interview that it was about 9:32, but the shooting didn’t happen until around 2:21 pm. (6) He was also caught on tape, screwing up his lines and asking for retakes, while being coached by a news cameraman for a TV interview. By the way, Hogg’s father reportedly works for a company called Cubic, a private military/police training company. (7)

    Finally, the police admit that they have video of the floors on which this supposedly happened (and there are reportedly about 20 cameras), but they have refused to show any interior videos to the public, and Sheriff Israel said they may NEVER show them! What is Israel hiding – what is he afraid to show us? At Columbine, they showed pictures of the shooters inside the school with guns three days after the shooting.

    WAS THIS “SHOOTING” STAGED TO PROMOTE GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION? It happened ONE DAY before the Florida legislature was scheduled to LOOSEN gun control laws! Let’s see the videos that Sheriff Israel refuses to release.

    We need to use the same methodology that 24 year veteran school safety instructor Wolfgang Halbig and Professor James Fetzer employed to debunk the Sandy Hook shooting hoax. Go to Startpage dotcom and search for “Boston Marathon Staged Hoax”, “Sandy Hook Staged Hoax”, read the excellent book “No One Died at Sandy Hook” by Prof. James Fetzer, FREE online. (8) Also see YouTube videos and articles entitled “Sandy Hook Justice Report” by Wolfgang Halbig, who actually trained Stoneman Douglas High School in how to deal with a school shooting. He has trained schools in 43 counties in Florida. He investigated the Sandy Hook “shooting” and declared that it was a FEMA drill.

    In 2012, the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and the Foreign Relations Authorization
    Act of 1987, which prohibited the feds from using propagandistic techniques to manipulate
    American public opinion, were repealed by an amendment (the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 by Rep. Thornberry (R-TX)) to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Since then, many phony events have been staged, especially shooting incidents.

    We need to restore Smith-Mundt in order to prevent the federal government from using propaganda and staged events to deceive and manipulate the American people.

    Attorney General Sessions needs to appoint a special team of federal investigators with the power to compel testimony under oath, and under penalty of perjury, in order to get to the bottom of this. Particularly, we MUST see the videos!
