Parkland Cop Fired For Hiding During School Shooting To Be Reinstated With Full Back Pay


One Parkland sheriff’s sergeant, who on Feb. 14, 2018, hid behind his car while a shooter tore through Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has ben reinstated with full back pay, according to his union. 

Sgt. Brian Miller was one of four deputies fired for “neglect of duty” that day, when 17 students and faculty were shot to death. Also fired was Scot Peterson, the deputy assigned to guard the school, who was seen on camera cowering behind a wall while gunfire rang out inside the school building.

But now, an arbitrator has found the sheriff’s department “violated Sgt. Brian Miller’s constitutional due process rights and improperly terminated him” over his failure to react to the shooting.

If it gives you any idea just how much cash he'll get in back pay, the Sun-Sentinel reports Miller was paid more than $137,000 the year before he was fired, including paid time off, overtime, and holidays.
