The FBI had two chances to stop the Parkland school shooting but failed to act. They first received tip over comment made on YouTube but failed to act because they couldn’t connect comment posted by user name “Nikolas Cruz” to school shooter Nikolas Cruz. Today we learn the FBI received a call into their tipline Jan 5th by someone close to Cruz warning he had a “desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting”.

I have no faith nor trust in the FBI. They’ve demonstrated a massive level of incompetence time after time, be it Parkland to this utter nonsense with Pres Trump. Maybe if the FBI wasn’t taking on the role of political activists consumed with taking out the President of the United States, they would’ve acted on these two warnings which most likely could have prevented the Parkland shooting leaving 17 dead.
Unlike pundits on the right, like Sean Hannity, I am calling out the rank and file of the FBI for being complicit with the upper echelon of the agency, by carrying out their political activism vs being sworn law enforcement agents acting on credible threats.
The agents are human beings just like you and me, they know.. KNOW right from wrong.
Let me tell you a quick story: I called out upper management of company I worked for during a conference call because their expectations on sales staff was outlandish an unattainable. Prior to the call my sales manager asked for our sales projections to compare with what he and corp wants. Well little old me went ahead and crunched the numbers for everyone in my region to see what they were actually pulling in vs what corp wants. Of course the numbers don’t lie, what people were actually doing was far less than what is expected. Conference call comes along, mgmt speaks their mind, opens the floor and I asked “Where are you getting these numbers from? Because NO ONE is doing that.” Needless to say we got the typical corp response and the call ended quickly. Few minutes later I get a call, “What the hell are you doing?” I told my boss I was doing what was right the numbers don’t support the expectations, and putting people’s mind at ease. We exchanged words, civilly on the issue, he didn’t like what I had to say (aka the TRUTH) and said “This isn’t going to work”, where I responded “Yea I know I’m out“. After the call, I fired out a company wide email with the numbers and a message to sales reps it’s not them, they’re not bad at their job, it’s corporate. I walked from the job DOING WHAT WAS RIGHT, oh and that company eventually went under!
Now what does any of this have to do with the FBI rank and file? Have you see any of them come to a camera or microphone and voice out displeasure with their bosses and the direction of the Bureau? Have you seen a mass exodus of agents over disgust with what is going on with the highest law enforcement agency of the land? NOPE!
FBI rank and file are clearly more concerned about their pensions than doing what is right. Sometimes doing the right thing will hurt you, but it’s better to take that blow than risk lives. Apparently rank and file don’t care enough about you and me. They do to a degree because they go to work, hunting bad guys and girls, but ignoring two clear warnings of coming attack on school is unacceptable to say the least. It’s quite infuriating actually, supporting ones feelings it’s time to gut the entire agency. This isn’t the first time the FBI has dropped the ball resulting in carnage and death. They KNEW about:
– San Bernardino terrorists
– NY/ NJ bomber
– Boston Bombers
– Steele dossier is fake
– Mike Flynn didn’t lie
– Las Vegas killer more than they’re telling us
…. and God only knows what else.
These people cannot be trusted, frankly I find them quite dangerous after this news.I’d be curious to see how much of their resources are being spent on the Trump-Russian hoax vs acting on credible tips of an impending mass shooting!
If you’re ever approached by the FBI, DO NOT speak with them unless you have an attorney present. They’ll get you like they got Martha Stewart!
To the 17 families who were destroyed because of the FBI’s failure to act, I highly recommend they file a class action lawsuit against this ROGUE agency.
On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him. The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.
Under established protocols, the information provided by the caller should have been assessed as a potential threat to life. The information then should have been forwarded to the FBI Miami Field Office, where appropriate investigative steps would have been taken.
We have determined that these protocols were not followed for the information received by the PAL on January 5. The information was not provided to the Miami Field Office, and no further investigation was conducted at that time.
FBI Director Christopher Wray said:
“We are still investigating the facts. I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public. It’s up to all Americans to be vigilant, and when members of the public contact us with concerns, we must act properly and quickly.
“We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy. All of the men and women of the FBI are dedicated to keeping the American people safe, and are relentlessly committed to improving all that we do and how we do it.”
