JUDGE: Orders Release Of Parkland Shooting Video

posted by Jonny Hartwell -

A Florida judge is ordering the release of video from the Parkland school shooting.

The video was captured on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School surveillance camera system. The footage is supposed to show the former deputy, Scot Peterson, who didn't go inside the building where the shooting was taking place. Prosecutors didn't want the video to be released over concerns about how it might hurt the investigation into shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz.

A judge disagreed and sided with media organizations who said the public had a right to see how government officials reacted to the shooting. The judge stayed the decision until Thursday to allow time for appeal.
