If Nikolas Cruz had been arrested for his prior criminal behavior he would not have passed a background check for a firearm purchase. The issue was/is not the background check; the issue was/is the lack of a prior arrest. Hence, the Broward County school and law enforcement policy is ultimately what failed.
I dont say this lightly, but the lawyers have the easiest case for wrongful death lawsuits in the history of this type of litigation. The county policy constructed by public officials (School Board and Superintendent), and the county law enforcement policy that was specifically and intentionally designed to ignore unlawful behavior (Broward Sheriff), is the very definition of intentional gross negligence.
Gross negligence requires a pre-disposition to create a system that is inherently dangerous. That is exactly what happened in Broward County, Florida.
Despite specific warnings that unstable and/or violent students would likely slip through the system as a result of intentional willful blindness; and despite specific warnings by police officers that these policies were dangerous; community leaders, district school administration and local police officials executed those policies anyway.
The resulting loss of life was entirely predictable; and it was predicted.
It will be very important for the families to screen out the lawyers carefully. Many of the top lawyers are aligned with high-ranking political Democrats. Political lawyers like John Morgan (Morgan and Morgan) are part of the ideological alignment (with Democrat politicians) that created the system of policies that led to the deaths of the students. Morgan would be a terrible lawyer for the families because he, along with many others would hold conflicts.
In my humble opinion, the victim families need to get good lawyers who are not part of the political system within the state of Florida; and must not -EVER- hire Democrats. There will be massive political pressure around the entire issue with all those who constructed the schemes being protected by the same system that needs to protect former President Obama.
ps. My apologies but my experience in trying to stop this years ago was met with hostility and the most intense political hate imaginable. As a result, I dislike the characters and officials around this story immensely. The Sheriff, the School Superintendent and every member of the Broward County School Board are complicit. They deserve no quarter.
My prayers are for the victims, their families and those who are hostage to these policies.
Note to Parkland families seeking to hold the school board accountable: "very important for the families to screen out the lawyers carefully. Many of the top lawyers are aligned with high-ranking political Democrats." Stay out of the Broward system.
There is an extreme political CYA occurring form the moment this happened. This policy was ushered in by the AA Chicago (Jamaican) Superintendent hired in 2012 - Robert Runcie- linked to Obama.
The county judicial system and sheriff's office signed onto this school agreement. It will take a high level law firm to crack this open and it will likely need to make its way to the Florida Supreme Court to get beyond the Broward County Democrat machine. Victimized school families should hire a lawyer from outside the county.
Bloomberg is flooding the WH and Congress with his paid trolls .
Push back folks !
Metal detectors are well under 5K.
19 April, 1775.
REMEMBER this date.
The school warned all Faculty to not let this kid on Campus with a backpack. “THEY KNEW” “THEY DID NOTHING”
The FBI was adequately warned “THEY KNEW” “THEY DID NOTHING”
The Cops / Sheriffs showed up at his house over 30 times “THEY KNEW” “THEY DID NOTHING”
Although it’s a 1950s New York case, Dunham vs. Village of Canisteo, 303 NY 498, and its thinking are very widespread. I don’t know if having a bad government policy regarding Cruz constitutes a sufficient “ministerial relationship” with the Parkland students to support a wrongful death action. I’m not a lawyer, just spent 18 years working for them. And that is the legal question that a lawyer would have had me research, if I still worked for them. But I don’t. So I won’t.
notice you havent seen or heard from the person who notified the FBI January 5th...also..wheres the sheriffs deputy that was supposed to be on patrol that day?..in the alst week, 5 students have been arrested for just mentioning firearms...the cops blew this bad.
How about Armed guard legislation, you know, like all the crooks in Washington got. Taxpayer financed multiple armed bodyguards for the matriarch of the Clinton crime family who should be doing life in prison, Hillary F. Clinton and what do our kids get? Teachers with pencils and welcoming mats for serial killers outside the school “This area is a gun free zone aka nobody will shoot back at you”
Someone at the FBI needs to be fired immediately.
...There is an extreme political CYA occurring form the moment this happened. This policy was ushered in by the AA Chicago (Jamaican) Superintendent hired in 2012 - Robert Runcie- linked to Obama.

Here’s the bad classroom conduct and.law breaking that’s excused by agreement in Broward County where Parkland is located.
-ALL STUDENT MISBEHAVIOR and these non-violent infractions:
1. Disrupting or Interfering with class
2. Fighting in a public place
3. Theft if less than $300
4. Vandalism damages < $1,000
5. Disorderly conduct
6. Trespassing, Loitering or Prowling
7. Criminal Mischief
9. Harrassment or Threats
10. Alcohol -all related offenses
11. Possession of Cannabis
12. Obstructing Justice without Violence
Bloomberg deserves it
Don't get off the CNN script!
GS too !
These children were required, upon pain of their arrest and/or their parents/guardians, to be in that school at that time. There was a reasonable expectation of security. Those magic words have worked before in shootings at privately owned facilities where people were in a building in return for a bi-weekly check. This is why employers insurers with a no weapons on campus policy and signage cough up dough immediately in the cases where someone just cant read.
“Someone at the FBI needs to be fired immediately”
Unions at all levels need to be busted up until there is true accountability for their performance. Especially true at the Fed. level.
