The Latest: ‘No known ties’ between Cruz and supremacists

4:30 p.m.

A law enforcement official says he knows of “no known ties” between the suspect who confessed to a deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school and a white supremacist group.

Lt. Grady Jordan is a spokesman for the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee, where the white nationalist militia known as the Republic of Florida is based. Jordan said Thursday that his office has arrested militia leader Jordan Jereb at least four times since January 2014 and has been monitoring the group’s membership.

He says his office has “very solid” information on the group and “there’s no known ties that we have that we can connect” 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz with the group.

The Corporate Media lies like a rug - and gets away with it. They are truly a domestic enemy.

The bought and paid for MSM will never report that many, if not most, of these mass murderers are likely on prescribed psychotropic drugs; the side effects of which are that they can make a person suicidal or homicidal. But the MSM will never pursue this line of questioning because drug companies sponsor the news.

I heard that he had several memberships in the ‘Resistance’ social media.

Aren’t they Socialist supremacists?

Thank you for setting the record straight. So sorry.

No problem : ),

It happens a lot just after something like this happens. And unfortunately there are people on the internet; on Twitter, FB, YouTube and on the boards like 4chan or 8chan that either punk people because they think it’s fun or funny or that others see it and forward to others believing it is true and gospel without doing any fact checking on their own.

I recall just after the Las Vegas shooting, that some guy was “identified” as being the shooter and was linked to being Anti-Trump because of a picture of someone who looked like him at an Anti-Trump rally and having a name that was similar to the shooter’s wife’s ex. It turned out that the guy wasn’t related or involved in any way but that didn’t stop the internet sleuths from posting personal info on him and likely making his life a living hell and probably some people still think he was involved.

Within minutes after the Boston Marathon bombing, a picture of someone was circulating all over the web and here too, identifying him as the bomber because he looked “middle eastern”, but he was just a spectator and was not involved in anyway.

And after that guy (Robert Lewis Dear, Jr.) in Colorado shot up a shopping center and specifically targeted a Planned Parenthood, I think it was Sundance at Conservative Tree House who was insisting for several days that the shooting was nowhere near the PP and that it was a bank robbery gone wrong and it was posted here as being “fact” until it was proven otherwise.

I just think we should be careful to vette and question the validity of any and all sources of info, including that of the MSM, especially in the first 24-48 hours after something like this happens.

Part of it IMO is the lightning speed of initial reports and the 24-7 news cycle with cable and the internet all competing for attention and which are initially often wrong or incomplete.

I’m just old enough at age 57 to remember when, while some major news stories might have made for a breaking news bulletin on TV or the radio, most stories, we didn’t learn about until the next day’s newspaper or evening news report, when actual reporters had time to work on getting the real story and vetting their sources and had to undergo fact checking, although not always enough even then. But now days it is all about the rush to report in real time and get the scoop and it is often pure speculation or based on rumors. Updates and corrections are sometimes made but are often ignored if it doesn’t fit the narrative. And Left and Right are equally guilty of this IMO.

One idiot with 10 followers put that crap out and the press wanted to believe it so they ran with it.

IF one of us had called in a story about how the killer was a member of Antifa - the damn papers that ran with this story would have checked the story out - and rejected it. They’re corrupt, but they’re not stupid.

Doesn’t matter. The MSM will make up some so called ties and repeat them ad infinitum ad nauseum, and eventually it will become “true” because CNN said so.

Fake, bur accurate.

isn’t it odd the Fake News Media refuses to use his full name like they have always done in the past with famous killers?

Maybe they don’t want to say “Nicholas De Jesus Cruz” beause it sounds like a latino?

Maybe he’s NOT a citizen?

Maybe he’s a DACA recipient?

I have heard (but can’t confirm) that he is a registered DEMOCRAT

Here’s another.......

...the media is going “balls to the wall” on this one, no gun owner is safe.

Yep. Compare this coverage to the [lack of] background coverage of the d-bag who woke up “feeling the Bern” one morning and took his AR to Republican baseball practice.

notice how Ben Shapiro is the first to step on us the first chance he gets. He is often well spoken to me like a snake.

But that is not his full name. It has already been shown that Nikolas Cruz was born in Sept 1998 the other in Oct 1996.
