As part of the civil lawsuit against resource officer Scot Peterson for allegedly failing to protect kids, a Florida judge decided on Wednesday that she will permit a re-enactment of the 2018 Parkland school shooting case massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, to be videotaped.

The decision means that the Parkland school shooting case that occurred on February 14, 2018, will be re-enacted in the upcoming weeks, with a shooter prowling the high school building in Parkland, Florida, which is located approximately 30 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale.

He will be equipped with an assault-style rifle that fires blank bullets instead of genuine ammunition. 17 people were injured and 17 people were killed in the shooting in the Parkland school shooting case.

The high school building, which will be demolished once Peterson’s trial is over, still bears the marks of bullets and blood from the shooting. A lawsuit filed by some of the victims’ relatives is what prompted the re-enactment.

They assert that Peterson, a Broward County sheriff’s deputy stationed at the school and tasked with guarding kids and faculty, disregarded his obligation to do so throughout the Parkland school shooting case.

Last month, Peterson was cleared of 11 counts of culpable negligence, child neglect, and perjury in a separate criminal prosecution.

Both the defense and plaintiffs’ legal teams may put on their own reenactments, according to Broward County Circuit Court Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips, although she would make a decision later on whether or not video or audio recordings of them might be played to the jury.

A re-enactment of the 2018 Parkland school shooting case, according to the families’ attorneys, will demonstrate that Peterson would have heard the more than 70 bullets but decided to escape the shooter and left the youngsters inside helpless.

Following Peterson’s acquittal in the criminal case, the families of the victims’ attorney, David Brill, stated in the virtual hearing that they “don’t want to leave anything to chance” and thus made the motion.

The re-enactments of the 2018 Parkland school shooting case, according to Peterson’s lawyer Michael Piper, would probably be turned into “a self-serving documentary” by the plaintiffs.

The judge agreed that the reenactment of the 2018 Parkland school shooting case, would take place before the start of the school year in late August and that adjacent residents would be informed in advance before granting the application.

After a jury saved Nikolas Cruz from the death penalty, he was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole for his role in the Parkland school shooting case.
