FBI was warned about CRUZ

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The FBI today admitted it was warned last month about the murderous intentions of Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz, who carried out his plans and killed 17 at a high school this week.

FBI Statement on the Shooting in Parkland, Florida:

On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him. The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.

Under established protocols, the information provided by the caller should have been assessed as a potential threat to life. The information then should have been forwarded to the FBI Miami Field Office, where appropriate investigative steps would have been taken.

We have determined that these protocols were not followed for the information received by the PAL on January 5. The information was not provided to the Miami Field Office, and no further investigation was conducted at that time.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said:

“We are still investigating the facts. I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public. It’s up to all Americans to be vigilant, and when members of the public contact us with concerns, we must act properly and quickly.

“We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy. All of the men and women of the FBI are dedicated to keeping the American people safe, and are relentlessly committed to improving all that we do and how we do it.”

    As more and more information comes out it’s uncanny how this guy reminds one of Lee Harvey Oswald. Cool under pressure this loner seemed to be highly keen to what he was doing. Did the dastardly deed, stashed the weapon, blended in with the chaos, and almost gave them the slip. And a host of other similarities that are now coming to light. Cover story: Mentally ill slow witted outcast. Ok I’m not buying it.

      He was on mind control drugs for years. They change the chemicals in the brain so they do not have the same thought process as normal people. People who do Meth have the same problem. Alters their brain.

        Today if your staring out the window in school daydreaming they will give you drugs because you have attention deficit disorder. Really. Did this guy have a cell phone. He surely knew computer lingo. How he get his money. Everyone including those who took him in are now saying he was a monster. Yes, he was pumped full of mind drugs for sure. Look into his handwriting samples. Telltale giveaway.

          The words being used to describe him are mildly retarded, dim witted, and of course mental ill by the media speak people. Just the unfolding of events with the shooting reminds one of a video game being played out in real life. Unreal.

    I can’t defend the FBI..they let us all down…heads need to roll and we need people committed to law enforcement, not politics. I am certain the FBI and the mental health system would have failed the public even if the FBI acted on this. My point is, schools need armed security and citizens need to be responsible for their own safety as politicians and government are incompentent/compromised.

    The fbi okayed the sale of the gun used in the shootings because they failed to do a background check on him – 39 police calls related to him and that’s okay ? Unfking beleiveable.!

    howy – seems to me your defending the democrat owned/controlled FBI – If they were not so infatuated with Impeaching Trump they could have contacted this kid/parents and put a lid on this by just questioning him/and have him evaluated for mental illness – that’s not against the law after the treats he made- just surveillance on him – which again would have been justified – PS – it was revealed that only thirteen people in the US have that name (Judge Jeneanne) pointed that fact out last nite on her show – No – the Uppers in the fbi are dirty and loyal to the DNC – Anything to discredit Trump is their motto and agenda – Clean house NOW !

    I could go for more restrictions on fire arms that do more than your basic self defense. But, I don’t think laws or politicians are going to be able to stop the shootings. Laws that are in place now are haphazardly enforce and it appears the FBI and others are asleep at the wheel when the public does its job. That being said, what would the FBI do to this kid even if they had followed up? They can jail him for the hell of it. Maybe they could have got him some help, but mental health facilities are not funded well and the is we the people’s fault. If we are serious about school shootings, it will require funding mental health, funding school facilities and laws that are consistently enforced. I don’t see any of this happening soon. I suggest arming yourself the police can’t protect you.

    It all started around here in the mid 70’s. That juggernaut political party that’s running on fumes now. Take the mother out of the home so she can join the stressful world of work. More power to them but who the hell wants to work with people you would never really know otherwise. But working is the law of the land. There are many people out there with 10’s of millions of dollars now. The bankers got it wired so tight now that if you do the math you need to learn how to split up the penny because that’s all they left you. Greedy Bastards. News is slanted to the extreme now. This FBI/Shootings is an indirect result of these hogtied politicians failing to act. This isn’t something new.

      The time is now. March to stop the slaughter of our children. With these massive marches going on of late this is the one. Otherwise it’s apparent all these many groups are selfish, self centered, lazy, and greedy folks. As for my sex, race, religion it really does not matter does it.

      Those going into to politics are all about the $$,$$$,$$$,$$$. If they tell you otherwise it’s a bold face lie. Most Americans know this.

      If democrats were in the white house, this shooting probably wouldnt have happened. They wouldnt have given mentally ill people the right to buy weapons like Trump did. They would have also banned ak-47

    The FBI is/was too busy working for the democrat party and Hillery Clinton to take down Trump and the republican party that they could give a chit less about some potential mass murderer of children.
