The FBI has no excuses for not catching Nikolas Cruz before he shot up the school in Parkland, Florida. Just the one call they got about 40 days before the shooting should have lit up all the lights at the local FBI office.
Cruz ended up killing 14 students and three staff and it all could have been easily avoided. The New York Times managed to get a transcript of that call and it should have scared the crap out of them, but for some bizarre reason… it didn’t.
Over the course of the January call, which lasted more than 13 minutes, the tipster warned the F.B.I. that Mr. Cruz had been adrift since his mother’s death in November. She said that Mr. Cruz had “the mental capacity of a 12 to a 14-year-old.” The tipster provided four Instagram accounts for Mr. Cruz, which she said showed photos of sliced up animals and the firearms he had amassed.
The caller, whose name was redacted on the transcript, said Mr. Cruz had used money from a life insurance policy after his mother’s death to purchase the weapons.
“It’s alarming to see these pictures and to know what he’s capable of doing and…and what could happen,” the tipster said.
“I just want to, you know, get it off my chest in case something does happen and I do believe something’s going to happen, but—” the tipster explained at the end of the call.
With all those warnings, how could the FBI not check him out? Snowflake David Hogg claimed that you can’t blame the FBI because it’s Trump’s fault. Who received the tip? President Trump or the FBI?
Someone should ask the pissy ant that question.
Until we wise up are begin arming the teachers there will be a lot more Parkland shootings.
