Seventeen families are mourning their dead. And authorities KNEW he was a risk.
If you see something, say something. That’s the advice, isn’t it?
But what about when people DID say something.
Some pieces of the puzzle were there to be seen.
Details are starting to emerge about the shooter, who recently was orphaned, stopped getting mental health treatment about a year ago and owned his own AR-15 rifle.
Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School painted the picture of a weird and disturbed teen who sold knives out of a lunchbox, bragged about killing animals and was finally kicked out of school for fighting and carrying bullets in his backpack.
It also appears that the FBI missed out on an opportunity to intervene before the shooting, when a bail bondsman in Mississippi last year alerted the feds about an alarming online message Cruz wrote saying he was ‘going to be a professional school shooter’.
Doug Giles has something to say about that.
And as we’ve covered elsewhere, the FBI KNEW he was a threat. For some reason, he still fell through the cracks. Feds were TOLD he had specific designs to be a ‘school shooter’.
If one student’s eyewitness account is to be taken at face value, his attitude was an open secret among the other students. She claims to have joked with him that she had expected HE would be the culprit in a school shooting.
But local school and police officials didn’t get a heads-up. We don’t even know if Nikolas got a visit.
Reports are that FBI ‘followed up’ but ‘couldn’t identify’ the author of the comment.
Whether you accept that explanation or not, there’s more to the story.
They knew he had been treated for mental health issues, and had discontinued his treatment… that he had been expelled from school… that he had been orphaned… that he was already ‘not permitted to bring a backpack to school’.
But he somehow passed a background check?
We love our law enforcement. They do a helluva job in most respects.
But in this case? Something about this just doesn’t add up.
And a whole lot of people paid one HELL of a price for it.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
