Gunfire Erupts at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Controversial Reenactment
In a shocking turn of events, gunfire erupted once again at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as part of a reenactment of the tragic 2018 massacre that claimed the lives of 17 students and staff members. The reenactment, conducted by ballistics experts, took place after a congressional delegation visited the school.
The purpose of this controversial reenactment is to support a lawsuit filed by the victims’ families and the wounded. They accuse the school’s former deputy, Scot Peterson, and his employer of failing to protect the students during the mass shooting.
Parents of the victims are stressing the importance of this reenactment in order to gain a better understanding of the events that unfolded on that fateful day. Since the trial for the shooter, the building where the shooting occurred has been locked behind a chain-link fence.
Signs of the tragedy still remain within the sealed building, including broken glass, wilted roses, and discarded gifts. And for the first time, the media was allowed to tour the building after the shooter’s trial. This provided a haunting glimpse into the horrific events that took place.
Live ammunition, along with bullet safety devices, was used during the reenactment. The purpose of using live ammunition was to capture the sounds that the former deputy, Peterson, might have heard during the attack. The recording of the gunfire will play a crucial role in the ongoing civil lawsuit.
The families involved in the lawsuit claim that Peterson knew the shooter’s location but retreated out of cowardice. However, Peterson was found not guilty of felony child neglect and other charges in a criminal trial. Yet, with the civil lawsuit having a lower burden of proof, the families and wounded are advocating for justice and seeking unspecified damages.
No trial date has been set yet for this high-profile case, but it is clear that the reenactment and the evidence found within the sealed building will play a key role in the pursuit of justice for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
