The FBI ignored multiple warnings about the Florida school shooter

Tragedy struck Parkland, Florida yesterday as a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17.

Nikolas Cruz was described by peers as “off” and “troubled.”

But his actions should have raised red flags within the FBI after these warnings.

Cruz, 19, had been expelled from the school last year for fighting.


Reports say he was getting treatment at a mental health clinic.

And even the FBI was warned about Cruz’s homicidal tendencies

Buzzfeed reports:

Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. “I’m going to be a professional school shooter,” said a user named Nikolas Cruz.

The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, 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.

Agents with the bureau’s Mississippi field office got back to him “immediately,” Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25.

“They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person,” Bennight told BuzzFeed News. “I didn’t. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them.”

But that’s not all. Jake Tapper says the FBI received a second warning, though it remains unclear what the second warning was.

In both cases, Tapper says, the FBI dropped the ball by not informing local law enforcement about the potential threats.



In the wake of the tragedy, President Trump tweeted his prayers and condolences for the families affected.

In the coming days and weeks, anti-gun politicians will certainly try to capitalize on this tragedy by pushing gun control.

In the past, many of their gun control proposals would have done nothing to stop tragedies like these from occurring in areas already proclaimed “Gun Free Zones” by law.



Do you think the FBI is wasting too much time going after Trump and his associates than protecting Americans by investigating real threats?

  1. Expelled for Fighting? WHY NO CHARGES? Sounds like School screwed up, too. Plus, on another site, one student at the school where the incident took place, said that he had been Expelled from 3 schools. IF this is true, WHY are there NO Criminal Charges, that would have blocked him buying a gun?

  2. They are worried about the security clearances at the WH, but they ignore
    credible evidence about this guy! Didn’t Mueller reassign Strzok to the HR
    dept. at the FBI, and now Bingo! we have security clearance problems in the
    White House? Call me crazy, but where is Lisa Page these days? Why do these two
    still have a job? Why do the lovebirds have clearances? Did they suddenly stop
    hating and scheming against our POTUS because they got reassigned? Are they
    suddenly no longer a threat to the President? Why is nobody watching the dangerous
    duo? Just askin?

  3. AND DONT FORGET “SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING”..PEOPLE ARE SCARED TO SAY SOMETHING FROM FEAR OF BEING CALLED A RACIST..SEE A BLACK PERSON DOING SOMETHING,SHHHHHHH..BUT IF HE IS WHITE U R SAFE TO CALL THE COPS..SAD STATE OF AFTAIRS,THANX BLOBAMA

  4. HARDEN SECURITY AT ALL SCHOOLS..PSYCHOS ARE COWARDS,THEY ATTACK SCHOOLS CUZ THEY ARE SOFT SPOTS.NO GUNS..FUNNY HOW THE AWARDS SHOWS ARE LOADED WITH ARMED GUARDS BUT NOT OUR SCHOOLS?I GUESS LIBERAL PUSSY CELEBS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR CHILDREN.

  5. It seems like there were a large number of red flags here and also people that dropped the ball. One thing that apparently did not happen was the school officials notifying local officials to the problem. The students apparently knew about him and had him pegged, but the all knowing school officials didn’t, even though they had all the evidence in their laps.

  6. Here is a thought. Put a perimeter fence around AND entire school, ONE WAY IN, same way out, WITH METAL DETECTOR AND ARMED GUARD. YOU CAN PUT PORTABLE FENCING ANYWHERE , ANCHORED to GROUND, concrete, asphalt. ANYONE, AND EVERY ONE , HAS TO GO THROUGH GATE , NO EXCEPTIONS.
    Would it stop 100%, no, but would deter just being able to walk on to a school ground or into a school building. Kids have to understand , this freedom to go and come as you please , is coming to and end. Any inconvenience, isn’t worth a child’s life if at all possible. We can’t push this issue to the back burner, until everything is discussed, waiting for next time.

  7. Before this tragedy occurred, this guy was obviously a walking time bomb. If I knew him such as one, I will make sure that the police are to be notified. Sad how they (who?) ignored the obvious signs. …

    If the FBI knew this as an inevitable event, then why do they choose to ignore a preventable tragedy? Politics?

  8. Time to WAKE UP AMERICA! Increase Security NATIONWIDE against ALL TERRORISTS FOREIGN and DOMESTIC. If a kid can radicalize and do this kind of damage, Think of trained ISIS Terrorists! Texas’ Church Shooter was a radicalized punk. All Gatherings Need Armed Guards! And/Or Airport style security!

  9. I think the answer to that question is self evident don’t you? I mean how long have they been looking for something, anything to “get” President Trump for, and yet they have found nothing. Either there is nothing to find, or they are the worst investigative force in the history of the world! And I know which one I’m leaning toward…

  10. Another case of the FBI not doing their job when being told in advance this kid was trouble. This is also like the case of the brothers that killed the people in Boston that the FBI had been made aware of before the event. One has to wonder what other information they are aware of and not taken any action on.

  11. It’s obvious that the leftist FBI wants gun control so they will allow and/or orchestrate school shootings, and even perform the shootings themselves,remember Sandy Hook, even a blind man could see there was more than one shooter. God bless you President Trump.

    • Early reports said the school was participating in a ‘live drill’ that day… some students gave accounts of other shooters… i’v seen 2 entirely diff photos of the ‘perp’… reeks of Red Herring &
      mk-ultra … stevequayle.com has a link re ValentineDay Shooting. 2 very brief videos are there w/student accounts, definetely Not on msm.

  12. LET’S TRY TO REMEMBER THAT THE FELLOW STUDENTS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REPORT NICKS ACTIONS,AND THREATS BACK IN NOV. AND DEC.2017. WHAT HAPPENED????? SO IF LOCAL POLICE, FIB, ETC. EVEN THE SCHOOL OFFICIALS, BUT NO KNOWN ACTION TAKEN. MY GUESS THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO WILL REPENT FOR THEIR NON ACTION THAT TERRIBLE DAY. I PERSONALLY WILL PRAY FOR THEM…. I SUGGEST ALL DO A RE EVALUATION HOW THEY TREAT THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS……GOD BLESS. CITIZEN MAIN.

    • I agree with James above. We are reaping the results of allowing Lawyers to practice medicine and against the sage advice of mental health professionals the doors were thrown open and they were told :fend for yourself:

  13. The FBI should have contacted the local cops in reference to the shooter BEFORE he took action! Well, there were 2 warnings about this person & the authorities DID NOTHING TO PREVENT THE TRAGEDY!! When we see something & say something, NOTHING is DONE about it!!

  14. The problem is Lawyers. We do not respond because they can always have a chance of being sued. When two people can stop prayer in school we are in deep trouble. The school changes policy to keep from be sued because they can not afford the legal expense. LAWYERS have taken over our country. Don’t you believe that is pretty slick move. The left is using this for their movement. Follow the money!!!!

  15. MINORS are given more scrutiny! But because Nikolas Cruz is an ADULT, the rules of engagement call for pussy-footing on his rights! Well, he picked the wrong death penalty State with his unconscionable carnage. He’s mental…no doubt about THAT. But no insanity defense with his well-played-out premeditation. Kids laughed off his idle threats…simply dissed him…as kids do. FBI with its prior knowledge…school administrators giving Cruz the boot without further ado…the mental health facility letting him walk without sending up red flags to the local authorities…the sick social media…the anti-depressant drug culture…ALL TO BLAME for not addressing the ROOT CAUSE…MENTAL HEALTH or lack thereof! Guns don’t kill people… PEOPLE kill people! My thoughts and prayers to all who have suffered unfathomable loss and to the young innocent survivors who cannot close their eyes for fear of PTSD nightmares. I DO pray them SWEET dreams…that their angels dry their tears.

  16. Another sad, sad day for Broward County!
    My thoughts & Prayers are with the
    families of the slain & those whom were injured! We can’t say enough for those who are hurting.
    May God rest their souls…

  17. Since his guilt is 100%, it would possibly prevent future ‘killers in the making’ from copying this bstrd if he was taken to the town center and executed by hanging. Of course,this would prevent many lawyers from sucking up a few million tax dollars, so it won’t happen.
