Deputy Sheriff Who Fled Parkland School Shooting To Get Job Back

www.newsweek.com/deputy-sheriff-w...

A sheriff's deputy who was fired from his job after running away from a Florida school massacre which left 17 dead has been reinstated with back pay.

Josh Stambaugh was axed from his post after an investigation found he had arrived at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in his truck, put on his bulletproof vest and took cover for five minutes after hearing the shots before driving away.

However, an arbitrator has now ruled that Stambaugh should be reinstated and also receive back pay saying that Broward County Sheriff, Gregory Tony, acted 13 days too late when he fired him, reported the Associated Press (AP) news agency.

State law says any disciplinary procedure against law enforcement officers must be carried out within 180 days of an investigation being completed.

It is unclear how much Stambaugh will receive in back pay but AP reported that including overtime, he earned $150,000 in 2018.

Earned? Earned ? Only thing he earned is a life of misery and regret.

“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once. It seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.”

I upvote this only as an acknowledgement. He deserves more than to lose his job.

I can't believe he would actually want to show his face in that town again.
