    Florida high school shooting - 20 injured and gunman on loose as SWAT team storms building

    AT LEAST 20 people have been injured in a major shooting at a Florida High School and a SWAT team has stormed the building where the gunman remains at large.

    Police have rushed to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida following reports of a gunman on the loose.

    The gunman, believed to be wearing a gasmask, opened fire shortly after 2pm local time (7pm GMT).

    The school had been placed on a "code red" lockdown and at least 20 people are thought to have been injured.

    A source at the Broward Sheriff's office told CNN the shooter remains at large.

    Students are reportedly barricading themselves in classrooms while others have been seen fleeing the scene.

    A CBS Miami anchor said: "I am in touch with a student inside the school, in hiding in a tiny closet with a lot of classmates and their drama teacher.

    "They are all okay, but they are scared, as you can imagine."

    Florida school shooter identified as 19yo former student




    The suspect in a shooting rampage at a Florida School that reportedly left “numerous” people dead, has been preliminarily identified as 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz, media reported, citing officials.

    The gunman reportedly had a rifle and possibly a handgun as he entered the school on Wednesday afternoon, before opening fire.

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told media that the man was a former student of the school.

    The attacker has been identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, according to AFP and CBS News reports, citing officials with the knowledge of the investigation.

    The shooter was “expelled for disciplinary reasons,” Israel said during a media briefing where he confirmed the identity of the suspect. It is yet unclear if Cruz, who was born in September, 1998, was enrolled in any other school after dropping out from Douglas High.

    Cruz was armed with an AR-15 rifle when he entered the school, leaving “countless magazines” at the scene, Israel said, adding that it is still unclear if he had any other weapon. Cruz opened fire outside the school, killing two people near the building and one person on the street. Twelve more people were fatally shot inside. Another two succumbed to their wounds in hospital, the sheriff said, adding that the death toll may still rise.

    Cruz was apprehended off-campus about an hour after the shooting unfolded, Scott said, adding that the teenager did not attempt to resist the arrest.

    The gunman did not sustain any significant injuries.

    Cruz had been banned from campus for making threats in the past, the Miami Herald reported, citing a teacher at the school.

    Police probe motive for Florida school 'carnage'

    Authorities say they could not have seen the suspect's massacre coming but fellow students describe him as a "crazy...outcast".

    Investigators are trying to find out what made a 19-year-old student open fire at his former school in Florida, killing 17 people.

    Police say they are beginning to "dissect" the websites and social media of suspect Nikolas Cruz, who was arrested after going on his shooting spree.

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel described some of the things he had already become aware of as "very, very disturbing".

    Cruz is suspected of going into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday afternoon, armed with at least one AR-15 assault rifle, a gas mask, smoke grenades and several magazines of ammunition.

    He deliberately set off the fire alarm so youngsters would leave their classrooms as he arrived at the scene, about 45 miles north of Miami, Florida Senator Bill Nelson told CNN.

    He then targeted pupils.

    Florida school gunman Nikolas Cruz 'remorseful' and 'sad'

    Nikolas Cruz revealed his movements after the school shooting to police, including a visit to a McDonald's.

    The teenager accused of killing 17 students and teachers in a Florida school is "sad", "mournful" and "remorseful", his lawyer said.

    Nikolas Cruz is a "broken human being" and is aware of what is going on, Melissa McNeill told reporters.

    The defence lawyer had her arm around the handcuffed 19-year-old during his first court hearing on Thursday where he was remanded in custody after being charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

    The teenager is accused of murdering 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, on the edge of the Everglades, on Wednesday afternoon.

    The FBI has admitted it was warned about him in 2017 and there are claims Cruz, who was orphaned after his mother died last year, was part of a white supremacist group.

    Described by former classmates as “loner,” Cruz was an orphaned teenager whose mother died in November 2017, according to The Sun-Sentinel. His mother and her husband, who died years ago, according to the paper, had adopted Cruz and his biological brother. The two boys had then moved in with a family friend, an attorney for the family told the Associated Press.

    “This totally came out of left field. They had no idea, no predilection,” James Lewis, the attorney, said. “They had no clue that this kid was dangerous,” he added.

    White nationalist leader backtracks on links to Florida shooter Nikolaz Cruz

    The leader of the Republic of Florida, a local white nationalist group, who earlier told media the suspect in the Florida school shooting was associated with his organization, has now backtracked on his words.

    Jordan Jereb, the leader of the Republic of Florida (ROF) group, told AP and the Anti-Defamation League NGO on Thursday that 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who has been identified as the shooter that killed 17 people and injured 14 others at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday, had participated in ROF's paramilitary drills in Tallahassee. During the shooting, Jereb said Cruz “acted on his own behalf of what he just did and he’s solely responsible for what he just did."

    Hours after the story was picked up by numerous media outlets, Jereb denied the connection in an expletive-laden post on Gab, a social network associated with far-right groups. Jereb claimed the reports were a misunderstanding that happened because he was sleep deprived and confused Cruz for another member of the group with the same name.

    Lawmakers agree to destroy site of school carnage: ‘This building has to come down’

    Students will never be returning to Building 12 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School again.

    Florida legislators said Thursday they will provide the resources to help the Broward School District tear down Building 12, the site of the massacre that killed 17 students and teachers. They want to build a new classroom space and replace the site of the murders with a memorial to honor the victims and their families.

    “This building has to come down,” Sen. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, told the Miami Herald on Friday after visiting the school the day before. He said the horror was palpable.

    “Everything was strewn across the halls from people running and dodging and there were significant blood splatters on the wall,” he recalled. “Like someone took a milk jug and exploded it.”

  • Superintendent says he supports demolition of Parkland school shooting building

    'No official decision has been made,' school district spokeswoman says

    By Amanda Batchelor - Senior Digital Editor
    Posted: 3:38 PM, February 16, 2018 Updated: 8:25 AM, February 17, 2018

    PARKLAND, Fla. - Multiple news outlets reported Friday that building 12 of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were fatally shot Wednesday, will be demolished. However, school officials said the decision is not yet set in stone. 

    A memorial in honor of the victims is expected to replace the building. However, Broward County Public Schools spokeswoman Tracy Clark told Local 10 News that "no official decision has been made."

    Superintendent Robert Runcie later confirmed that while the demolition is not a "done deal," he does support the request that has been made by "students, parents and members of the community." 

    Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine also expressed his support for the demolishment. 

    "No one should ever have to step foot in the building where Wednesday's massacre took place," Udine said in a statement. "Today, I call on Gov. Rick Scott, the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives to step up to the plate. Fund the initiative to tear down and replace the existing classroom building where the shooting occurred on Feb. 14, 2018."

    Udine said he also hopes the state will approve funds to place a memorial at the site of the building. 

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Nikolas Cruz, 19, was dropped off at the school Wednesday by an Uber driver and entered the east stairwell of the building with an AR-15. 

    He shot into classrooms 1215, 1216 and 1214, returned to classrooms 1216 and 1215 and then shot into classroom 1213, Israel said.

    Does tearing down a building and raising a memorial in its place create more memories than it erases?   Why  tear down only room 12 (presumably 1212) when he shot into rooms 1213, 1214, 1215 and 1216 as well?  There's reference to blood spatters on walls. Would there not also be blood spatters all over the floors of room/s where victims fell?

    (JTA) — Sam and Matthew Zeif are both students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Matthew’s a freshman; Sam’s a senior.

    The Jewish brothers were in different rooms when Nikolas Cruz, a 17-year-old who had been expelled from the school, raided its grounds on Wednesday, firing an automatic weapon.

    Scariest part of it all was knowing my little brother was right above me and not knowing if I would ever see him again. I’ve never really treated him the way he deserved. Not anymore. Seeing his face outside of school was the most relief I had ever felt. My prayers to all. pic.twitter.com/Iq8CHVNXd0— Uncle Sam Zeif (@SzZeif) February 15, 2018

    They texted one another from places of hiding.

    “Are you ok?” Sam asked.

    “Hopefully,” Matthew answered. “Just know I love you.”

    They survived, and Sam posted their exchange on Twitter and made clear the experienced had changed him forever.

    Scott Beigel will be remembered for being a hero in a time of crisis. 

    The Sun-Sentinel in Broward Couty, Florida, reported on Thursday that Beigel, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas (FL) High cross country coach, was among the 17 individuals killed during the mass shooting by 19-year-old alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz at the Parkland, Florida, high school on Wednesday. He was 35. 

    Beigel was one of two coaches who were killed trying to save students from gunfire. Assistant football coach Aaron Feis and athletic director Chris Hixon also perished. 

    Reports indicated Beigel was killed after unlocking his door to allow students to hide in his social studies room during the chaos.

    "We had an athletic director, a campus monitor who responded immediately when there was signs of trouble in the school," Broward County Superintendent of Schools Robert W.

    These are the 17 people killed on Wednesday in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

    Aaron Feis played football for the Stoneman Douglas team before he graduated in 1999. The 37-year-old went back three years later to become assistant football coach and a security guard.

    Feis, who had a wife and a daughter, reportedly was the first to respond to the 'code red' when the shooting began. Students said he was shot as he shielded several of them from Cruz.


    "I coached with him. My two boys played for him," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said. "The kids in this community loved him, adored him."

    I guess he had a choice of blaming guns or blaming prescribed psychotic drugs.    Anyone that person's age shouldn't have access to guns unless they're in the military, with a responsible adult (hunting or shooting clay targets) or in an organised club. Alcohol also and guns is a bad mix.  There's also the angle he didn't like certain groups of people and a troubled life.   Life brings troubles to all of us. Thankfully most deal with or resolve them without crashing and burning.  Just like the Mandalay Bay and all these other shootings we never find out the truth. Fact is there's so many shootings now people are becoming desensitised and have to wonder if that's planned for some reason.  True guns aren't freely available here since the Martin Bryant shooting.  From memory there haven't been outbreaks of shootings in schools other than maybe one hostage situation I can think of in the past.
    Personally am dead against mind altering medications as a cureall and have refused them in the past.

    Blaming people for thinking  or persuading everyone to be united in their ideas within a cordon of political correctness seems to be increasing on the media these days.

    Lori Alhadeff, in an interview on CNN, screamed as she shared her anguish over the death of her daughter, Alyssa.

    “The gunman, a crazy person, just walks right into the school, knocks down the window of my child’s door and starts shooting. Shooting her! And killing her!” Alhadeff said.

  • “Stooge Time” for America. Florida School Killer Nikolas Cruz Diagnosed with Depression, Autism and ADHD

    Global Research, February 22, 2018

    One recalls, when in the late 70s they rebroadcast the re-runs of The Three Stooges comedy show, aficionados of the show would shout out ‘It’s Stooge time!’ Well, sadly, after the latest school shooting in Florida, it is Stooge Time again. The February 19th USA TODAY, as mainstream a paper as one can find, carried this full page report by Brett Murphy ( relegated to Page 4 when it should have been on Page One) that covered the chain of actions and non actions by the state agencies, the Sheriffs Dept. and the FBI regarding the horrific actions of Nikolas Cruz. The article below is in part based on the information contained in the USA Today report. 

    School Shooter Nikolas  Cruz

    We now know that Cruz was diagnosed with depression, autism and ADHD, and that he was cited for violence, fighting, assaults, profane language and insults at school at least 41 times from 2012-2017 by teachers, school officials and administrators. In May of 2016 a Florida Dept. of Children & Families investigator wrote “Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun” ( six months before he turned 18 and legally bought one) and “It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”

    Police have acknowledged to visiting his home dozens of times and there is no indication what actions, if any, the officers took. Of course, it is now public knowledge, while our fastidious FBI is ‘hot on the case’ of some Fat Cat Russians allegedly hacking into the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign (with, of most importance, revealing nothing but the TRUTH by the way) that they were called in January by a concerned citizen stating that Cruz stated his desire to kill people.

    We now know, and the FBI has had to apologize after the murders that nothing was done about it…. No visits to Cruz and no interviews of him by the FBI. Going back to  2016, the Dept. of Children and Families investigator was told that Cruz was self mutilating himself, a reason that the Florida Baker Act Law could have been used to involuntarily get him mental health evaluation. At that same time, the investigator became concerned about Cruz’s talk about being depressed and wanting to purchase a gun. Oh boy!! Now here’s the kicker: The investigators for that department noted his mental health diagnoses and his expressions of hate such as Nazi symbols on his book bag alongside of a racial slur. When an investigator then went to visit Cruz at his home, there was no search to confirm those self mutilations because, to quote the investigator, “He was wearing long sleeves.”

  • "Burn Her", "Murderer": Angry Crowd Lashes Out At NRA's Dana Loesch

    During last night's "unscripted" CNN Town Hall on gun control, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch was given the courtesy of expressing her opinion in the spirit of mutual respect. Well, almost.

    During a question by Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez, the attendees screamed and heckled her, calling Loesch "a murderer," as CNN moderator Jake Tapper kept quiet.

    Gonzales' prepared statement, which CNN *may or may not have* approved, or given her:

    Alright. Dana Loesch, I want to know that we will support your two children in the way that you will not. The shooter at our school obtained weapons that he used on us legally. Do you believe that it should be harder to obtain the semi-automatic and weapons, and the modifications for these weapons to make them fully automatic like bump stocks?

    First, Loesch responded by encouraging young people to speak up: "I don't think that anyone should deny you your voice or deny you your position because you are young" which however quickly drew booing from the crowd.

    Never Again MSD is an American student-led organization that advocates for tighter regulations to prevent gun violence.[1] The group, also known by the hashtag #NeverAgain, was formed in the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in which 17 people were murdered by a shooter armed with an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle.[2] The group started on social media as a movement "For survivors of the Stoneman Douglas Shooting, by survivors of the Stoneman Douglas Shooting" using the hashtag #NeverAgain.[3] The group has demanded legislative action to prevent similar shootings in the future and has vocally condemned U.S. lawmakers who have received political contributions from the National Rifle Association (NRA).[4][5][6][7]

    The group was founded by about twenty students who survived the Stoneman Douglas shooting. Among its most prominent members are Emma Gonzalez, Alex Wind, Cameron Kasky, David Hogg, Jaclyn Corin, Sarah Chadwick, Sofie Whitney, and Delaney Tarr.[1][8][9] "MSD" refers to the school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.[1] The group is tech savvy and have demonstrated that public relations is one of their strengths;[1] according to one report, the group added 35,000 Facebook followers over a three-day period.

  • "He Never Went In": Officer On Duty Filmed "Doing Nothing" During Florida Shooting

    Thu, 02/22/2018 - 18:40 Zero Hedge

    Video evidence reveals that an armed Broward County resource deputy stationed at Stoneman Douglas High School during the Valentine's day massacre did "nothing" during the shooting - instead waiting outside as a gunman opened fire on students and teachers, killing 17. 

    Speaking at a press conference, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said the on duty officer at Stoneman "never went in." Israel said he was "devastated" after watching the video showing the deputy taking a position outside the Western side of Building 12 while shots rang out, "and he never went in" despite having a clear view of the entrance.

    "I think he remained outside upwards of four minutes," Israel said.

    The uniformed officer, identified as Scot Peterson, was been suspended without pay pending an investigation, according to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel - however he has since resigned and retired from the department. 

    "As is his right, Scot Peterson chose to resign, because he has the necessary time with the agency and meets the requirements of retirement, he resigned and retired."

    "We're not going to disclose the video at this time, and we may never disclose the video depending on the prosecution and the criminal case."

    "These families lost their children, we lost coaches. I've been to the funerals. I've been to the homes where they're sitting shiva. I've been to the vigils. It's just, there are no words."

    When asked by a reporter what the deputy should have done, the Sheriff replied "Went in. Address the killer. Kill the killer."

    In other words, where previously we learned that on Feb. 5, 2016 Broward Sheriff's were warned by a neighbor's son that Nikolas Cruz "Planned to shoot up the school on Instagram", we now find out that during the shooting, a deputy could have saved lives but he hid instead as teenagers were killed.

  • Local Police Let Florida Shooter Off The Hook When He Said He Was "Going To Get His Gun"

    Thu, 02/22/2018 - 12:10

    CNN's FOIA of Broward County 911 records has produced a steady stream of scoops about Parkland, Fla. school shooter Nikolas Cruz fleshing out much of what is publicly known about Cruz's background and the various reports made warning the FBI and other authorities about his threatening behavior.

    The report draws on one specific incident that unfolded in the immediate aftermath of Cruz's mother's death, when Cruz and his brother Zachary Cruz were living in Palm Beach County with Rocxanne Deschamps, a former neighbor who had been close to the family.

    After one particularly violent outburst, Cruz said he was going to Dick's to pick up the AR-15 he had recently paid for, and that he would come back to attack her.

    Cruz

    The police were warned by Deschamps, who told them about Cruz's violent past - that he'd "used a gun against people before" and had "put the gun to others' heads in the past" - but still they did nothing.

    Cruz and his brother only lived with Deschamps for a few weeks before Nikolas was taken in by the Sneads, but Zachary - who reportedly suffered a breakdown following the shooting - stayed with Deschamps. Cruz had been staying with  the Sneads, the parents of a friend, at the time of the massacre, deceiving them by claiming he didn't have a key to the gun safe where his AR-15 was kept in accordance with house rules.

    Cruz

    As CNN reported earlier this week, Cruz had purchased 10 rifles in the year before his killing spree.

    On the day after Thanksgiving, Cruz was at work at a Dollar Tree store. Rocxanne Deschamps' son, Rock, 22, called 911 to report that an "adopted 19-year-old son" had possibly hidden a "gun in the backyard," according to a dispatcher's notes. Rock Deschamps told law enforcement "there were no weapons allowed in the household," the report said. It's unclear from the record whether sheriff's deputies conducted a search. The incident was classified as "domestic unfounded," which means a deputy didn't find proof to back up the claims.

    The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was called again to the home four days later, when Rock said Cruz lashed out against the family that took him in, according to the Palm Beach deputy's report and dispatcher notes. The deputy went to a local park and found Cruz, who explained that he had misplaced a photo of his recently deceased mother and, emotionally distraught, began punching the wall. Cruz lost control the same way he had several times in the past at his mother's home in Parkland, Florida, when he had not taken his prescribed mood-altering medication, as CNN has previously reported based on Broward police documents.

  • "Shocked And Outraged": Four Broward Deputies Waited Outside School As Children Were Massacred

    Fri, 02/23/2018 - 18:54

    Coral Springs police officers were "stunned and upset" to learn that four Broward County Sheriff's Deputies were stationed outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and had not entered to face an active shooter, sources with the Coral Springs, FL police department told CNN.

    Coral Springs Police Chief Tony Pustizzi

    As the details behind the Police response to the Valentines Day massacre emerge, it appears that the Coral Springs Police department - which sent 130 officers to the scene - put their lives on the line while Broward County officers simply waited for backup as the scene unfolded, in what some Coral Springs officials perceived to be a derilection of duty. 

    Some Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff's deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. It's unclear whether the shooter was still in the building when they arrived.

    The four Broward Sheriff's deputies, including fired High School Resource Officer Scot Peterson, had their pistols drawn from behind the safety of their vehicles, and "not one of them had gone into the school," according to shocked Coral Springs police. 

    The Coral Springs officers, meanwhile, entered the building soon after they arrived on scene to confront the shooter, while the four Broward County Sheriff's deputies remained outside until two more officers arrived on scene along with an officer from neighboring Sunrise city.

  • Youtube Removing Video of Parkland Student Who Claimed There Was Second Shooter

    Fri, 02/23/2018 - 08:48

    We upload a lot of content to our Youtube channel, hardly any of it is conspiratorial. Most of it is main stream news clips, either politics or finance. After the Parkland shooting there was a young girl who went to the high school who claimed she definitely thought there was a second shooter. She even claimed to have talked to the killer on the morning of the killings, which I felt was both interesting and compelling. 

     

    It was uploaded to the channel and received a good amount of traffic, maybe 10-15k views. I don't remember the exact amount.

     

    No big deal right? 

     

    Wrong, according to Youtube. 

    I just got an email from them this morning alerting me to the fact they removed the video from the platform and dinged my account with a "community strike", which isn't that big a deal -- as it only restricts my ability to live stream; but I think it's unfair and I am appealing their ruling because, as far as I can tell, she's a legit eyewitness of the events of the day and even if she was mistaken -- shouldn't her words be part of the public record? Are we simply going to clean the internet of all things that do not fit neatly with the accepted narrative?

     

    In case you're wondering, the good folks over at Snopes already debunked the second shooter theory, citing this very interview as confusing and in tandem with the accepted narrative. Quite frankly, I don't know what they're talking about. The girl flatly stated she definitely thought there was a second shooter. There is nothing unclear or confusing about it.

     

    Here is the interview, via Twitter.

  • FBI Tipster Transcript Leaked: Cruz Will "Get Into A School And Shoot The Place Up": Full Text

    Fri, 02/23/2018 - 17:20 Zero Hedge

    Update: Amid public demands for transparency, the Broward Police have released the full list of 23 calls for service to the  home of attacker Nikolas Cruz, in a desperate bid to deflect criticism over handling the Parkland school shooting. The final call, however, just like the transcript from the January 5 call discussed below, shows that serious concerns were not acted on.

    “In the interest of full transparency, we are making available the list of all 23 calls for service at the Cruz home,” the sheriff’s office said in a Friday tweet. “18 involved Nikolas Cruz. None appeared arrestable under Florida law. However, two of the calls remain under internal investigation.”

    As color coded in the list, the most serious warning came on November 30, 2017, when a caller located in Massachusetts advised that Cruz was collecting knives and was likely to conduct a school shooting. The caller was concerned Cruz would kill himself and “be a school shooter in the making.” They believed that Cruz’s weapons were kept at a friend's house

    Image Mystery deepens Armed deputy stood by and ALLOWED the Florida shooting to happen doing nothing to intervene

    (Natural News) It’s always fascinating to me how the “official stories” surrounding almost every mass shooting begin to unravel a few days after the event. ABC News is now reporting that an armed deputy stood by and watched as the Parkland school shooting took place, refusing to even enter the building:

    [A] video shows Peterson arrived at the west side of Building 12, where most of the killing happened. He then took up a position but “never went in.” …The video shows that Peterson remained outside the building for upward of four minutes during the shooting, which lasted about six minutes, Israel said. Aside from getting “on his radio,” Peterson did “nothing” while standing outside the building, Israel said.

    (“Israel” is the name of the Broward County Sheriff.)

  • Florida Shooting Survivor Doubles Down: CNN's Entire Townhall Was Scripted

    Fri, 02/23/2018 - 17:22

    The latest embarrassing blow to CNN's (already tattered) credibility emerged last night when Colton Haab, the student who first exposed CNN for pushing him to ask a scripted question during Wednesday night's town hall appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to offer even more shocking details about CNN's conduct.

    Yesterday, we noted that Haab, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and shooting survivor, had come forward to say he decided not to attend Wednesday night's CNN town hall after CNN producers gave him a pre-scripted question for him to ask.

    But Haab told Carlson that the producers didn't just want him to ask one scripted question: They essentially rewrote a list of questions and political points that he wanted to make at the town hall, prompting him to back away from the town hall. Haab told Carlson he shared with CNN what he wanted to say, but a producer named Carrie Stevenson ultimately rejected it, and instead after several conversations "scripted" a question for him.

    "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab said to a local news outlet Wednesday night, according to RealClearPolitics.

    Haab told Carlson he wanted to go "speak [his] part" and "open eyes" to a few things he thought could make the situation better. Haab said the network was dishonest and that is why he decided not to attend. He also said he was directed to "stick to the script."

    "She had actually said that over the phone that I needed to stick to the script," Haab said of the CNN producer.

  • The School Massacre in Florida. Media Violence, War Culture

    The main causes of recurrent school shootings and the question of potential beneficiaries of the parkland crime (Cui bono?).

    Global Research, February 23, 2018

    On February 14, at the Parkland High School in Florida (USA), the 19th school shooting took place at a US school in the just-started 2018. It was one of the deadliest: fourteen students and three teachers were literally executed by a 19-year-old former student and dozens more injured.

    In a disturbing life video of a student from a classroom, it becomes clear what mental torments young people have to go through in a school massacre: boys in shorts and girls lie huddled in fear under tables and chairs, the jackets pulled over their heads. At short intervals you hear gunfire and a boy screaming in panic:

    “Our fu**ing school is getting shot up… O my god! There’s bullet holes in the fu**ing computer… O my god!” (1)

    Other students called their parents over cell phones and said goodbye or asked desperately, “Where should I go, what should I do?” Never before have I experienced this insanity so closely and painfully.

    Philip Medd, a former CIA and FBI official who as an expert had to drop a CNN interview on a massacre because of a wine spasm, said that this mass murder was not by accident, not by misfortune, but as a consequence of “our inaction”. America is experiencing an “epidemic of mass killings” that cannot be accepted (2).

    According to observers in Florida, this Parkland crime is an exact repetition of the school shooting at Erfurt’s Gutenberg High School on April 26, 2002, even as far as the 17 dead are concerned.

    On the causes of increasing youth violence and school shootings

    As early as the 1970s, the question of how violence originates and how it spreads has been clarified through scientific studies: Aggressive, violent behavior, like all other human behaviors, is learned in the interpersonal relationship and is not innate.

    The US scientists Albert Bandura and Richard Walters have found in their research that children imitate parents, siblings and playmates. And just as they acquire cognitive and social skills, they also acquire aggressive behavior as early as the first years of life. It’s a learning on the model.

    The influence of models is so strong that even children who have no preparedness for aggression take on the aggressive behavior of role models. With this explanation certain aggression theories (hypothesis of an aggressive drive, aggression frustration hypothesis) and other theories are refuted as false.

    In exploring the causes of increasing youth violence, it is important to highlight the role of the media, especially the violent computer and video games. It has been proven that the increasingly brutal TV and violent games products contribute significantly to the development of child and juvenile delinquency and to the increase of youth violence.

    Violent video and computer games (“killer games”) are touted to the youth of the world since the early 1990s by the multi-billion dollar games industry as entertainment and the ultimate “game fun”.They are produced in cooperation with the Pentagon. The internationally recognized US military psychologist Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, an expert on the psychology of killing, describes these violence games as “mass murder simulators.

  • FBI Never Contacted Google After "Professional Shooter" YouTube Threat Reported

    Sat, 02/24/2018 - 15:50

    As we dig further into the monumental breakdown in protocol between the FBI and Florida officials which could have prevented 17 deaths in the Valentines Day massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed on Friday that the FBI never contacted Google - which owns YouTube, after it was reported that suspect Nikolas Cruz, under his own name, said "I'm going to be a professional school shooter" in a YouTube video comment last September.

    When the uploader of the video, Ben Bennight, contacted the FBI shortly after Cruz left the comment, officials spoke with him for 20 minutes, after which there was no follow up until the same agent or agents came to his home on Wednesday. 

    In a press conference late last week, Special Agent Robert Lansky who is in charge of the Miami FBI division said that the FBI received the tip, however they were "unable to further identify" the person who made the comment, despite conducting "database reviews" and "checks."

    "No other information was included with that comment, which would indicate a time, location or the true identity of the person who made the comment," Lasky said. "The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment."

    What they didn't do is contact Google - which would have been able to help confirm Cruz's identity. Cruz's IP address, for example, would have allowed the FBI to at minimum know what town the comment came from - narrowing the list of suspects to everyone named "Nikolas Cruz" in the region.

    Had they simply followed up, the FBI would have also discovered from Florida's state social services agency that Cruz intended to buy a gun, or that he had been cutting his arms on snapchat.

  • How the NSA Can Greatly Reduce Mass School Shootings

    Sat, 02/24/2018 - 01:49

    Instead of spying on Americans to crush dissent, consolidate power, or gather sensitive information for blackmail, the NSA could actually do something useful.

    The NSA could reduce the number of mass shootings using existing technology and resources.

    Remember, virtually all school shooters are males in their teens or early twenties.

    And the New York Times reports that most school shooters leave numerous public clues about their intentions before the shooting ... and most are obsessed with reading about prior school shootings:

    Studies have shown, for example, that in school shootings, the killers virtually always “leak” their intentions, leaving a trail of clues behind them. Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old who the police said has confessed in the Parkland shooting, apparently was no exception: Students reportedly avoided him and joked that if anyone were going to shoot up the school, it would be him.

    Researchers have also found that in many, if not most, cases of school violence, the perpetrator has done extensive research on previous school shootings, studying them in detail, often with special attention to the killings at Columbine High School in 1999. A study of nine school shootings in Europe conducted by J. Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist in San Diego who consults on threat assessment for schools and corporations, found that a third of the killers had “consciously imitated and emulated what had happened in Columbine.”

    Elizabeth Englander, Professor of Psychology, and the Director of the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center (MARC), Bridgewater State University, writes:

    Technology may challenge kids’ social development, but it can also be harnessed for good. Anonymous reporting systems – perhaps text-message based – can make it easier for parents and students to alert law enforcement and school counselors to kids who seem disconnected or disturbed. That enables early intervention.

    In Steamboat Springs, Colorado, one such tip appeared to prevent extreme violence in May 2017. Police took a young man who’d threatened to harm his peers into protective custody before he could act on his words.

    ***

    Extreme violence is almost always preceded by certain behavioral problems. These typically include a propensity toward aggression, a marked lack of social connectedness, indications of serious mental illness and a fascination with violence and guns.

    ***

    Most young people today use social media to express their feelings and aspirations. In the case of school shooters, these posts are often violent. A single violent post is hardly a guarantee of homicidal acts, of course. But evidence strongly indicates that repeated expressions of this nature can be a sign of trouble.

    But the current approach of law enforcement is just to wait and hope for a luck break:

    We are not proactively scraping the Internet for offenders … We react.” Instead, the agents depend on what [the head of the FBI's the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime, America's top expert on identifying mass shooters] calls “the human bystander.” They depend on somebody giving someone else the creeps. Though he acknowledges that many bystanders are fragile resources—“it’s usually the people closest to an individual who are best positioned to observe those kinds of concerning behaviors and at the same time the most reluctant to report”—his team members have no choice but to wait for a concerned person to tell them about a person of concern.

    But we don't have to wait for a lucky break of a volunteer bystander getting the creeps ... the NSA can do it for us.

    After all, the NSA is already spying on virtually everyone in America.

    The high-level NSA executive who created the NSA's global electronic surveillance system, Bill Binney, says that the NSA could help identify would-be shooters ... while protecting the privacy of most Americans.

    Specifically, the system which Binney designed at the NSA to catch terrorists automatically encrypted and anonymized Americans' information.  The information could only be decrypted with a court order.

    Binney thinks this could work for school shooters ...

    Specifically, the NSA could gather information from the web, social media, and other sources and gather information on:

    • Males in their teens or early twenties
    • Who lack social connectedness
    • Who have obsessively studied past school shootings ... or otherwise made violent statements on social media or the web
    • Who have experienced mental health issues
    • Who law enforcement personnel or others say are unstable

    A tweet which points out how there were armed guards at every recent mass shooting in the US has gone viral as critics of President Trump's plan to prevent more bloodshed by arming school teachers is pummeled as 'colossally stupid'. 

    As the national debate on how to prevent more killings rages on in the wake of the Parkland high school massacre, the president argued yesterday that the answer was to give teachers weapons to shoot 'sickos'.  

    He believes the very presence of more firearms on school campuses will deter them and he is expected to reiterate the point at CPAC in Maryland on Friday morning.  

    Many, including survivors of the Parkland shooting, have lambasted the idea and say it will only lead to more violence.

    Among them was Twitter user who rightfully pointed out that there had been armed personnel at Columbine in 1999 and at other mass shootings which were not in schools.

    Image SILENCE Twitter YouTube scrubbing all content and banning all users who question the official false narrative on the Florida school shooting

    (Natural News) A few years from now, looking back on why Twitter collapsed and YouTube was abandoned by every intelligent person, we’ll remember what these totalitarian tech giants did in February, 2018. Starting a few days ago, both Twitter and YouTube began scrubbing all videos and tweets that don’t follow the “official narrative” on the Florida school shooting.

    Anyone who questions the wisdom of the school students-turned-propagandists — who were all probably eating Tide pods a week ago — is immediately banned and silenced. Only one side of this “debate” is allowed to exist: The side that worships the lunatic Left’s demands that all law-abiding Americans surrender their self-defense firearms because a group of traumatized school kids were shot at by their own lunatic classmate.

    The InfoWars YouTube channel received a "first strike" warning over a video suggesting that the survivors of the Parkland school shooting were coached and given lines for interviews with various media outlets following the Valentines Day massacre which left 17 dead.

    The video, uploaded to the InfoWars channel with over 2.2 million subscribers, was removed for a violation of YouTube's "harassment and bullying" policy. It revolved around this clip of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, who appeared to be having trouble conveying his account of the shooting:

    YouTube has all but scrubbed this clip of Hogg from its platform.

    A second clip of Hogg which fueled speculation that he was a crisis actor features an exchange between Hogg and a Redondo Beach, CA lifeguard from 2017, in which the High School student places his boogie board on a trash can before getting in an altercation with the lifeguard.

    Sun, 02/25/2018 - 20:31

    After being confronted by CNN's Jake Tapper about his department's refusal to act after receiving a tip about Nikolas Cruz being a potential "school shooter in the making," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel insisted that he provided "amazing leadership" to the department after blaming the lapse on an underling.

    Israel, who has been a frequent presence on cable news - including during CNN's gun-control town hall last week - since 19-year-old Cruz shot and killed 16 of his teenage classmates and a gym teacher during a Valentine's Day rampage, refused to take responsibility for failing to stop Cruz - eliciting an incredulous response from Tapper.

  • Florida Governor Orders Investigation Into Parkland Shooting Response

    Sun, 02/25/2018 - 20:01

    Florida Governor Rick Scott has ordered the state's top law enforcement agency to conduct an independent investigation into the Broward Country Sheriff's Department response to the deadly Valentine's Day shooting at a Parkland high school, the governor's office announced Sunday.

    a
    FL Gov. Rick Scott

    Gov. Scott's request to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to investigate the matter follows a letter from Florida House Member Bill Hager (R) calling for Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to resign over his department's response to the shooting, along with dozens of visits to suspect Nikolas Cruz - making the Sheriff "fully aware of the threat this individual [Cruz] presented to his community."

    As a result of the media reports coming out showing the gross incompetence of the @browardsheriff, I am calling on @FLGovScott to remove sheriff Israel from his post. 1/2

    — Bill Hager (@RepBillHager)

     

    BDSD visited Cruz's home 23 times over a seven year period for emergencies including a "mentally ill person, " "child/elderly abuse", "domestic disturbance," and "missing person." according to 

    Controversy erupted in the aftermath of the shooting when it was revealed that a Broward County resource officer who was stationed at Stoneman Douglas High School never went in during the shooting - instead waiting outside pointing his gun at nothing.

    The Resource Officer, Scot Peterson, resigned shortly after being suspended without pay - and drew harsh rebuke from President Trump, who called him a coward. 

    "But he certainly did a poor job. There's no question about that. He was there for five minutes, for five minutes. That was during the entire shooting. He heard it right from the beginning. So he certainly did a poor job. But that's a case where somebody was outside, they're trained, they didn't act properly or under pressure or they were a coward. It was a real shock to the police department." -Trump

  • "I'm No Coward" Claims Deputy Who Refused To Confront Parkland School Shooter

    SHARES

    The Broward County Deputy who has been roundly criticized since Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed last week that he didn't confront Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz has released his first public statement - and its contents are hardly surprising.

    The deputy insisted he isn't a coward and that he didn't initially believe that gunfire was happening inside the building, according to local media reports.

    Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, in a statement released through his lawyer Monday, said his actions during the Valentine’s Day massacre "were appropriate under the circumstances."

    Peterson "heard gunshots but believed those gunshots were originating from outside of the buildings on the school campus," according to the release. "BSO trains its officers that in the event of outdoor gunfire one is to seek cover and assess the situation in order to communicate what one observes with other law enforcement."

    "Allegations that Mr. Peterson was a coward and that his performance, under the circumstances, failed to meet the standards of police officers are patently untrue," according to the statement sent from the office of Fort Lauderdale attorney Joseph DiRuzzo.

    The statement comes four days after Israel singled out Deputy Scot Peterson for failing to engage Cruz. The deputy, Israel said, waited outside for four full minutes while Cruz massacred students inside.

    "I am devastated. Sick to my stomach. He never went in," Israel said at the time. Hours before the press conference, Peterson was suspended without pay, effectively forcing him to retire. promptly retired. Peterson, a 32-year veteran, was named school resource officer of the year in Parkland four years ago.

    In the statement, Peterson claimed he took up a position outside Building 12 after rushing over to respond to a report of firecrackers. He said that he was the first BSO deputy to dispatch on the radio that shots were being fired. He also claimed that he told a first-arriving Coral Springs officer that he "thought that the shots were coming from outside.

    "Radio transmissions indicated that there were a gunshot victim in the area of the football field, which served to confirm Mr. Peterson’s belief that the shooter, or shooters, were outside," according to the lawyer.

    Peterson added that he had "the presence of mind" to have school officials locate the shooter using closed-circuit TV cameras.

    "Sheriff Israel’s statement is, at best, a gross oversimplification of the events that transported," the statement said.

  • Questions Emerge Over Florida Shooter's "Full Metal Garb"

    Mon, 02/26/2018 - 12:55

    SHARES

    Just as we saw with the massacre in Las Vegas, a number of questions and inconsistencies have arisen following the Parkland High School shooting.

    As Intellhub's Shepard Ambellas reports, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Stacy Lippel was grazed by a hot bullet which left the chamber of the shooter’s gun as she closed the door to her classroom after letting a number of students file into what would presumably be safety. However, nothing could have prepared the teacher for what she was to witness next.

    “I suddenly saw the shooter about twenty feet in front of me standing at the end of the hallway actively shooting down the hallway, just a barrage of bullets, and I’m staring at him thinking why are the police here,this is strange because he’s in full metal garb, helmet, face mask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I’ve never seen before,Lippel told Good Morning America last Wednesday.

    The brave teacher said she told fellow Stoneman Douglas H.S. teacher Scott Beigel, 35, to get back in his room just before the shooter fired a number of rounds into his room killing him and other students. Lippel said the shooter fired four to five rounds into her classroom which shattered the classroom door window before the heavily-claded assassin continued his diabolic shooting spree down the hallway.

    “I never really knew when he left because we all thought he was still here,” she said.

    Two of Lippel’s students were fatally wounded in the attack.

  • It Could've Been Much Worse: Florida Shooter's AR-15 Jammed With 150 Rounds Left

    Wed, 02/28/2018 - 10:50

    In the latest chilling report about the Parkland, Fla. high school shooting that claimed the lives of 17 people (14 of them teenage students), CNN reports that shooter Nikolas Cruz had at least 150 rounds of ammunition left in his AR-15 when he stopped shooting and fled Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. His gun had reportedly jammed, forcing him to end the assault.

    If the gun hadn't jammed, the death toll could've been much, much higher, CBS said.

    Cruz had also reportedly etched swastikas into the sides of the magazines that contained the left over ammunition.

    It's still not clear why Cruz stopped firing when he did (though we imagine it's possible that the firearm jammed). The news follows reports that Cruz attempted to shatter a hurricane window on the third floor in the school's teacher's lounge during the shooting. Had he been able to penetrate the window, it's probable that he could've killed many more people, who likely wouldn't have been able to ascertain where the bullets were coming from. Police have speculated that he might've used this stairwell vantage point to kill first responders who arrived on scene.

    Cruz

    Meanwhile, CNN also disclosed that one of Cruz's former neighbors, a woman named Joelle Guarino, said she tried to warn authorities about Cruz seven years ago, and that he began displaying troubling behavior as early as age 12.

    The shooting has sparked a national debate over the role of military-style semi-automatic weapons and whether more restrictions should be placed on their availability.

    Earlier today, Dick's Sporting Goods announced that it was "going to take a stand" and announced it would permanently ban sales of AR-15s and other https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-28/not-clear-why-he-stopped-florida-shooter-had-180-rounds-left-his-ar-15assault-style rifles from its stores - a move that could benefit rivals like Cabela's.

  • Broward County Officials Opened 66 Investigations Of Misconduct Under Sheriff Israel

    Tue, 02/27/2018 - 22:10

    The Broward County State Attorney's office launched over 66 misconduct investigations by Sheriff's deputies going back to 2012, reports Journalist and Fox News contributor Sara Carter.

    Many of the claims against officers - ranging from drug trafficking to kidnapping, happened under the watch of beleaguered Sheriff Scott Israel, whose office is now under investigation over allegations that his deputies failed to allow first responders to treat patients at Stoneman Douglas High School following the Feb. 14 massacre which left 17 dead, and that several deputies failed to enter the school to defend the children during the shooting - with reports of a "stand down" order emerging over the last 24 hours.

    Sheriff Israel in a Lamborghini

    Israel has defiantly pushed back against criticism, refusing to step down in the wake of what many believe to have been a preventable incident. 

    Over the weekend Israel fought back on calls for his resignation saying the actions of his deputies were “[not] his responsibility” when they failed to enter the high school that was under siege by Nikolas Cruz, 19. Police responded to calls regarding Cruz over 45 times over a seven-year period, although Israel disputes the report, stating his office only received 23 calls during that time frame.  The FBI also received a detailed call on Jan. 5,  warning that Cruz had posted disturbing images of slaughtered animals and comments on his Instagram saying he wanted to kill people, according to reports. The FBI stated on Feb. 16, that the tip was not forwarded to the FBI Miami Field Office. -Sara Carter

    The existence of 66 BSO internal investigations came to light in a civil suit filed by the family of an African-American IT engineer, Jermaine McBean, who was killed in 2013 by Broward Sheriff's deputies responding to a call that McBean was walking around with a weapon which turned out to be an unloaded air rifle resting on his shoulders, according to witnesses.

    The officer who shot him was indicted for homicide, which was later dismissed and is now under review by the state Supreme Court - however the shocking number of internal investigations into BSO deputies for a wide variety of criminal behavior has become extremely relevant in light of recent events.

    Approximately 66 BSO (Broward Sheriff’s Office) deputies and other employees, including supervisory personnel were arrested for, charged with, and/or convicted of crimes that run the gamut from Armed Kidnapping, to Battery, Assault, Falsifying records, Official Misconduct, Narcotics trafficking, and other crimes involving dishonesty and violence in the years immediately proceeding 2013 when Jermaine was killed. Most of the offenses on the list occurred in the years 2012-2013,” according to court records filed against Israel and the Broward County Sheriff deputy defendants.

    Tue, 02/27/2018 - 15:55

    Authored by Lexi Morgan via Intellihub.com,

    Why would media companies not want to see footage from inside of the school that would presumably show a heavily-cladded gunman wearing full body dress?

    Three media companies filed suit in court on Monday, in an effort to obtain security camera footage captured on cameras mounted outside of the Majority Stoneman Douglas High School.

    But for some reason nothing was filed to obtain footage from inside the school?

    Footage that would presumably show a heavily-cladded shooter wearing full body dress, as reported by both teachers and students who admit there was a scheduled code Red drill on the day of the shooting.

    Moreover, as it turns out, at least four officers were told by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to stand down and to not enter the school unless they were wearing their body cameras which none of them were.

    Florida Killer Sought $800,000 Inheritance Before Shooting According To Court Filing

    Wed, 02/28/2018 - 15:35

    Accused Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz tried to obtain a reported $800,000 inheritance nearly two months before the shooting, according to court records.

    The 19 year old signed a retainer agreement with lawyer Audra Simovitch on December 13 in order to pursue his share of the estate left behind by his adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, who died in November. Nikolas was set to receive his share when he reached the age of 22, according to an order by Broward County Probate Division Judge Charles Greene.

    Simovich accused the public defender's office of "obstructing justice" by denying access to Cruz, and telling the guardian of his younger brother, 42-year-old Roxanne Deschamps, that the suspected shooter may wish to "waive his interest in the estate."

    If Cruz is allowed to access the inheritance, he wouldn't be entitled to a free defense attorney under Florida state law. 

    Of note, a call placed to the FBI one month before the massacre by a person close to Nikolas Cruz said that he was set to inherit $25,000 per year from his mother's life insurance policy when he turned 21 until the age of 30, and that she was worried that he would spend it on guns, according to transcripts leaked to the WSJ. 

    One day after the February 14 shooting, Simovich filed court papers on behalf of Deschamps, claiming that she has an interest in Lynda Cruz's estate since she is caring for Zachary Cruz - Nikolas's brother, who has a 50% interest in the state of Lynda.

    Zachary, who turned 18 last week, was reportedly taken to a psychiatric hospital "against his will" two days after the shooting at the request of Deschamps under Florida's Baker Act.

    After the Cruz brothers' adoptive mother died, they moved in with Deschampps - however Nikolas was kicked out after a few weeks amid agruments over his weapons.

    More On:


    Confessed Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz calmly told an Uber driver he was headed to “music class” just minutes before carrying out his murderous rampage.

    Cruz ordered an Uber on Valentine’s Day at 2:06 p.m. and climbed into the back of the car carrying a large case, CBS Miami reported Wednesday.

    The Uber driver, who did not want to be identified, said she thought nothing of the case – which actually concealed an AR-15 assault rifle.

    “I saw him with a backpack which I thought was a guitar case. He told me, ‘I am going to my music class,’” said the driver, who picked Cruz up from a location on Loxahatchee Road in Parkland.

    The younger brother of deranged school shooter Nikolas Cruz was committed to a mental health facility, according to reports.

    Authorities removed someone Friday from the home of Rocxanne Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers who took them in after their adoptive mother died of pneumonia in November, The Palm Beach Post reported.

    A friend of Deschamps confirmed Zachary Cruz, who turns 18 next week, was the person removed from the home.

    The younger Cruz brother was involuntarily committed under Florida’s Baker Act, under which he can be held involuntarily for up to 72 hours for an involuntary psychiatric exam. It’s unclear if he’s been released.

    The younger half-brother of accused Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz appears to have broken his silence more than a week after the massacre.

    A person identifying himself as Zachary Cruz opened up his Facebook page to the public — posting a new profile photo of two smiling little boys hugging each other and the message “Appreciate all the positive messages” with heart emojis — late Saturday.

    If it is Zachary’s page, it would be the first time he has been heard from since the Feb. 14 shooting. He was involuntarily committed for mental observation Feb. 16.

    The message was the only posting visible on the page Sunday afternoon. It garnered several responses from well-wishers.

    Nikolas Cruz’s Half-Brother May Have Just Shared This 1 Photo of Him and the Florida Shooter as Children


    • February 27, 2018  from Cheat Sheet

    On Feb. 14, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen students and faculty members have died, and over a dozen others were injured in the event. In the wake of the tragedy, the country is left with numerous questions regarding the shooter, his home life, and how this happened.

    Those at the high school weren’t the only ones affected that day. Nikolas Cruz had a younger brother, Zachary, who has also spoken out about the shooting. Here’s what he had to say, including a ph0to he posted of him and Nikolas during a more innocent time (see page 5).

    The Sun-Sentinel reports that Lynda and Roger Cruz arranged a private adoption with Nikolas Cruz’s birth mother. As soon as Nikolas was born, his new adoptive parents whisked him away to their beautiful (and enormous) Florida home. And when Nikolas’ birth mother got pregnant again, the couple adopted her next son, Zachary, too.

    Rocxanne Deschamps

    Rocxanne Deschamps or Roxanne Deschamps is the family friend who took Lynda Cruz’ adopted sons Zachary and Nikolas Cruz after she died from pneumonia on November 1, 2017. Ms. Deschamps told Nikolas she was more than happy to have him and his young brother in her house, but there was no way she was letting him keep his guns inside her mobile home in Lantana.

    “He bought a gun and wanted to bring it into my house. Violence and gun not accepted in my house!” Rocxanne Deschamps said publicly in comments that have since been removed from her Facebook page.

    Zachary Cruz

    While Nikolas moved out of Rocxanne’s home and moved in with James and Kimberly Snead, his brother Zachary ,18, stayed at the Lantana home. Some people said that unlike Nikolas, Zachary Cruz (pictured above) was well-behaved; however, a family friend contradicted that statement and said, Zach also had issues, and like his older brother, he was also taking medication.

    Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz: Palm Beach County 911 records detail weeks before school rampage

    Cruz lived in Lantana trailer after mom's death

    5:02 PM, Feb 21, 2018
    5:57 PM, Feb 21, 2018

    LANTANA, Fla. – Three months before accused Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at his former high school, he lived in a Lantana, Florida trailer park with his dead mother’s best friend and his 17-year-old brother. 

    During Cruz’s brief stay in Palm Beach County, deputies were called to the trailer three times in one month for a fight, a welfare check and report of a weapon. 

    The information may provide more insight into the mind of the 19-year-old man charged with 17 counts of murder after he allegedly took his AR-15 to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

    Video delays misled cops at Stoneman Douglas shooting

    The Broward School District's security cameras did not provide real-time video for police during the Stoneman Douglas school shooting. An outdated radio system provided further confusion as officers tried to find Nikolas Cruz.

    Nearly a half-hour after Nikolas Cruz dropped his rifle and fled Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, police thought they were seeing him live on security cameras, still in the building. They were actually seeing images tape-delayed.

    The Broward School District’s security cameras did not show real-time video for police, complicating their efforts to track and pin down the shooter, the South Florida Sun Sentinel has learned.

    “They are monitoring the subject right now. He went from the third floor to the second floor, the third to the second floor … They’re monitoring him on camera,” an officer said on radio transmissions recorded by Broadcastify, an audio streaming website, at 2:54 p.m. In fact, Cruz was already long gone — he had escaped the school’s freshman building 26 minutes earlier and was sitting at a McDonald’s a mile away, a timeline released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office shows.

    The video images were “delayed 20 minutes and nobody told us that,” said Coral Springs Police Chief Tony Pustizzi.

    Commanding officer initially ordered responding deputies to 'stage' not enter Stoneman Douglas, sources say

    Agents ordered not to rush into Parkland shooting scene

    Exclusive: As responding deputies were arriving to the scene to search for the active shooter in the Parkland massacre, a commanding officer apparently prematurely ordered some responders to stage and set up perimeter outside instead of rushing in and neutralizing the shooter. This goes against Broward policy. #Tucker

    Fox News has learned that in the critical moments as first responding deputies were searching for an active shooter on the property of Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, a commanding officer on scene apparently ordered some of the initial responders to “stage” and set up a “perimeter” outside -- instead of immediately ordering or allowing officers to rush in to neutralize the suspect, Nikolas Cruz.

    “It’s atrocious,” a law enforcement source who was on the scene after the shooting told Fox News. “If deputies were staging it could have cost lives.”

    The law enforcement source said responding deputies and officers were called to an active shooter scene in which they are trained to immediately “go, go, go” toward the direction of the shooter. “Every second is another life,” the source said.

    The Broward County Sherrif’s Office policy on active shooters indicates responding deputies may enter the building to preserve life without permission. That remains the priority until various objectives are met such as the shooter being detained. The policy does not appear to list staging -- setting up an area to keep first responders safe before police secure a violent scene -- or a perimeter as an immediate priority.

    Nikolas Cruz's brother regrets bullying school shooter, police report says

    By Jamiel Lynch, CNN

    Updated 0229 GMT (1029 HKT) March 3, 2018


      (CNN)The younger brother of the man who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school told investigators that he bullied his sibling when they were younger, according to a sheriff's report.

      Zachary Cruz said two days after the massacre that he felt guilty about the incident and thought he possibly could have prevented it, a Palm Beach County detective wrote in the report.
      Cruz, who has turned 18 since the shooting, told the investigators from Palm Beach and Broward counties that he and his friends had bullied Nikolas Cruz, something Zachary "now regrets ever doing," according to the report.

      'He left 75 per cent of his students in the hallway to be slaughtered': Parkland high school junior hits out at 'coward' teacher who 'closed the door on him and other students' during the Florida massacre

      • Parkland high school massacre survivor accused his teacher of locking him and over a dozen others out in the hallway as the gunman went on his shooting spree
      • Josh Gallagher, a junior, posted a scathing message on social media accusing his math teacher, Jim Gard of Pompano Beach, of being a coward
      • Gallagher says that he and 15 other students were locked out of their classroom by Gard for four minutes while the shooting was taking place
      • Gard says that he didn't see the students in the hall and that he locked the door because that was the rule during an emergency
      • Gallagher's claims appeared to be corroborated by Connor Dietrich, another student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School 

      A student who survived the Parkland high school massacre has accused one of his teachers of locking him and more than a dozen other students in the hallway as the gunman opened fire. 

      Josh Gallagher, a junior from Coral Springs, Florida, posted a scathing message on social media accusing his math teacher, Jim Gard of Pompano Beach, of being a coward during the February 14 massacre.

      Gard defended himself, telling the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that he was simply following the rules and that he didn’t see any students in the hall.

      ‘I’m a victim of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting,’ Gallagher wrote in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

      ‘Before the shooting took place I was located in the 700 building which is right next to the freshmen building facing it in my Math class with my Teacher Jim Gard,’ he writes.

      Disgraced Parkland Officer Lied, Radio Dispatch Recording Reveals

      Fri, 03/09/2018 - 23:44 from Zero Hedge

      As gunman Nikolas Cruz went on a rampage at Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, firing on students and teachers until his semiautomatic AR-15 jammed, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson cowered outside behind the safety of cover, "pointing his gun at nothing."

      Peterson publicly stated that he thought gunfire was happening outside on campus, not inside the building - perhaps to justify not going in to stop the shooting which claimed 17 lives. 

      He lied.

      Internal radio dispatches released by the Broward County Sheriff's Office Thursday reveal Peterson immediately focused on Building 12 and radioed that gunfire was happening "inside." 

      What's more - Peterson warned his fellow officer to stay away - despite wounded students and staff inside who required assistance. Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO) policy requires deputies to engage an active shooter and eliminate the threat. 

      “Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away,” shouted a panicked Peterson as people screamed in the background. 

      The timeline of events and audio recording of police radio chatter shed new light on the response by the BSO. 

      The records appear to support Broward Sheriff Scott Israel’s contention that Peterson, a longtime school resource officer, should have entered Building 12 to engage Cruz and try to prevent deaths. They also appear to show that other deputies may have refrained from rushing into the school at the direction of Peterson and a Parkland captain. The response by the agency has been the subject of national scrutiny, and is currently under review by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. -Miami Herald

      BSO police union president Jeff Bell welcomed the release of the audio and timeline of events. 

      “It certainly backs up that he never went into the school,” Bell said of Scot Peterson. “At one point he says to keep back 500 feet. Why would he say that?”

      Timeline of events via the Miami Herald

      Cruz was dropped off at the school by an Uber at 2:19 p.m. Two minutes later, he entered Building 12. He began firing within 15 seconds. Peterson, at the time, was near the administration building.

      At 2:22 p.m. the fire alarm was triggered, blaring throughout the entire campus. The first 911 call also went out, via Coral Springs emergency dispatch center.

      “Be advised we have possible, could be firecrackers. I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired —1200 building,” Peterson radioed at 2:23 p.m.

      At that moment, according to the video, Peterson arrived at the southeast corner of Building 12, where he appeared to remain “for the duration of the incident.” “We’re talking about the 1200 building, it’s going to be the building off Holmberg Road,” Peterson said frantically seconds later.

      “Get the school locked down, gentlemen!” he shouted.

      As the shots intensified, other deputies began racing to the scene, radioing in. One believed he heard shots by the football field, something Peterson mentioned in a statement released last month by his attorney, arguing that the school resource deputy thought shots were coming from outside the 1200 building.

      “BSO trains its officers that in the event of outdoor gunfire one is to seek cover and assess the situation in order to communicate what one observes with other law enforcement,” Peterson’s attorney said.

      But Peterson, according to the timeline and radio dispatches reviewed by the Miami Herald, remained focused on Building 12.

      “All right... We also heard it’s by, inside the 1200,” Peterson said at 2:25 p.m.

      Joseph DiRuzzo, Peterson’s attorney, did not respond to an email and a call to his office. Peterson resigned eight days after the shooting rather than be suspended without pay pending an internal affairs investigation.

      As the shooting progressed, calls began “blowing up” the 911 call centers. Students were spilling out of the campus. Peterson radioed to make sure “no one comes inside the school.”

      At 2:27 p.m., six minutes after Cruz went into Building 12, the shooting stopped. Cruz ditched his AR-15 in the third-floor stairwell and left.

      Five seconds later, Peterson radioed for officers to “stay at least 500 feet away at this point.” A dispatcher repeated, “Stay away from 12 and 1300 building.”

      Teacher Says FL Shooter Was in Full Body Armor, Face Mask, and She Thought He Was a Cop

      A teacher who witnessed the Florida School shooting said she saw the shooter firing a barrage of bullets down the hall and she immediately thought he was a police officer because he was wearing full body armor.

      February 26, 2018
      body armor

      Parkland, Florida – A teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School said she encountered the man who reportedly shot and killed 17 people, and she initially believed he was a police officer, based on the body armor he was wearing and the unidentifiable firearm he was shooting in her direction.

      Stacy Lippel, a creative writing teacher at the school, told Good Morning America that the Valentine’s Day rampage began with a fire drill, which forced all of her students out of the classroom and into the hall. Within seconds, gunshots rang out, and as students began panicking and screaming, she said she ushered them back into her classroom.

      “I don’t know how many kids were in there, but I was pulling them and getting them in, and shouting at them to get in the room, and then I suddenly saw the shooter about 20 feet from me, standing at the end of the hallway actively shooting down the hallway,” Lippel said. “Just a barrage of bullets and I’m staring at him thinking ‘Why are the police here? This is strange,’ because he’s in full metal garb, helmet, face mask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I’ve never seen before.”
