In what is being dubbed the worst school shooting in Florida history, an expelled student reportedly returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and opened fire at students and teachers from a rifle. According to the latest reports, 32 people were shot, of whom 17 died.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office identified the shooter as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a Trump supporting deviant. He was wielding an AR-15 with multiple magazines and commenced the attack by tripping the school’s fire alarm. Sheriff’s name is Scott Israel – LOL.
A school student interviewed on WSVN said they had a fire drill last week. TV reporter Brian Dorman said there were two fire drills today, one in the am, and one later. The shooting started during the second drill. Students reported having been confused why they had two drills in one day.
Since becoming president, Trump has signed several executive orders, including one which allows people with a history of mental health to buy and possess firearms. But as usual, he lives in a fantasy land and took to Twitter yesterday and said:
“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!" yes - he actually had the audacity to say this.
The shooter was already known to the FBI. According to Buzzfeed, a YouTube vlogger noticed a comment left on one of his videos saying "I'm going to be a professional school shooter," and he alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment to the bureau's tips account. He also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.
There have been 18 school shootings already in 2018. We pray this will be the last, but we have an awful feeling that it won't be.
