Trump criticizes Federal Bureau of Investigation over handling of tip about Florida school-shooting suspect

Adjust Comment Print

The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

Other Twitter users tweeted their disgust that the photo had been politicized. Police arrested and charged 19 year old former student Nikolas Cruz for the 17 murders.

At a press conference Thursday, FBI special agent Rob Lasky said that agents had spoken with the man who made the complaint - which tipster Ben Bennight confirmed with the New York Times.

A number of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas have been vocal in their calls for gun control rather than words of comfort, with President Donald Trump agreeing to meet with Parkland students in the coming week for a listening session, although it is not clear which students will be attending the meeting.

"You killed my kid!"

According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, Cruz confessed to using an AR-15 rifle in the mass shooting.

He killed 14 students and three teachers, then ditched his rifle and vest and escaped the school building in the crowd of panicked students.

"The NRA brainwashes us to think these rules and laws can't work here", Corin said. Canada has had three and the United Kingdom had one and they both introduced gun control and yet here we are, with websites dedicated to reporting these tragedies so that they can be formulated into statistics for your convenience. We call BS. They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun.

Looks like we're all going to visit Paradise City again
Thankfully, it won't be long before players can revisit Paradise City: the remastered game is launching on consoles on March 9th. Paradise was the last entry in the main series, with just one more Burnout title later released on mobile devices in 2010.

From the privacy of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Trump vented about the Russian Federation investigation in 10 tweets. Math teacher Jim Gard told the Miami Herald that before Wednesday's fatal shooting of 17 people, Cruz may have been identified as a potential threat - Gard believes the school had sent out an email warning teachers that Cruz shouldn't be allowed on campus with a backpack.

"I really don't want to see this politicized into a gun debate", Republican Sen.

"He asked me to help him with JROTC stuff, so I left the freshman building 20 minutes before the shots started", he said. "But as you look around at how many people who are here ... there are thousands more who are doing something really lovely for my sister". Trump also alluded to the FBI's failure to act on tips that the suspect was unsafe while bemoaning the bureau's focus on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Sponsors of the gun show, which typically draws more than 10,000 attendees, did not consider canceling the event after the Parkland shooting. "We are losing our lives while the adults are playing around".

Galvano said senators want to examine ways to protect schools that do not have resource officers - often armed law enforcement officers - on site.

Florida politicians, meanwhile, scrambled to produce legislation in response to the February 14 attack that killed 17 people.

Authorities have not described any specific motive, except to say that Cruz had been kicked out of the high school, which has about 3,000 students and serves an affluent suburb where the median home price is almost $600,000. It is investigating why the information wasn't probed further.

"He was in our backyard one time, and our back neighbors have chickens, and he was, like, shooting at them with, like, a pellet gun or something weird", neighbor Brody Speno said.
