This is so sad. I hope it was natural, but when the department doesn't release cause of death, it usually ends up being suicide.


Israel, you're a sorry excuse for not giving this hero more than a few lines and a pitiful wave of the hand for serving Broward County over half of his life.
Rest In Peace Deputy Marshall Peterson. The Real Blue will take it from there. Many condolences to the family and department.


John-Brown.... Israel would be the Sheriff of "Coward", I mean Broward County. Have you not seen any news articles since Feb? BTW, there was a school shooting in that county too, if you didn't know.


I got it. It appeared he was responding to a post I couldn't see. This site has been having issues the past few days. No need to be a cunt, cunt.
