Skip to comments.How federal funding kept Nikolas Cruz from getting arrested and unable to purchase firearms

The collaborative agreement, signed by Runcie; Sheriff Scott Israel, now fully embroiled in his agency's failure to get Cruz off the streets; state's attorneys; the president of the Broward chapter of the NAACP; and many others, has the fundamental goal of keeping minority students involved in various "transgressions" away from law enforcement and out of the courts.
In one feature of PROMISE, Judge Williams circumvents the criminal justice system by participating in a simulated court hearing called "The Juvenile Justice System of Care," where he encourages the delinquent student to participate in the program rather than risk arrest.With the promise of federal monies, it's no surprise that Superintendent Runcie (annual salary: $335,000) was happy to oblige his friends in D.C. Within a year of Runcie's arrival, student arrest rates were down 66 percent, and Broward County Schools were about to hit the federal jackpot.
On October 5, 2016, the School Board of Broward County Public Schools and its community partners signed the PROMISE agreement for the second time. After the 2016 signing, it was announced a couple of weeks later on October 18, BCPS was the only large urban district in the country to receive a Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education totaling $53,808, 909. One of the TIF's grant priorities is listed as "improved life for students in poverty/students of color."

POLL: Who is most responsible for the Parkland shooting?
Im not sure
Lots of fake ways to make crime statistics look better than they are... too bad we don’t have a national organization that could expose this stuff...
We have something better, Trump with a Twitter feed.
None of the above. It was the AR.
Surprised the blame to the NRA is so low at 34%.
And if this agreement and ones like it are left in place, it won’t matter if there is a more comprehensive background check legislated because the necessary information will never be entered into such a system.
One would be very hard put to even conceive of a better way to destroy any incentive to good or decent behavior by the intended beneficiaries of this agreement.
His fellow Democrats in the afflicted County must be complete imbeciles—if not outright traitors. “Stupid is as stupid does.”
One Broward signatory---Obama's Chicago crony--- Broward Supet of Schools Runci's annual salary is $335,000 PLUS perks.

WHAT?! What do you mean my videos/messages have been deleted?!
Consider, instead, the wisdom of the Founding Fathers on subjects related to an armed citizenry. It is the difference between night & day, good & evil; rational & utterly insane.
The blame and responsibility lies clearly with government institutions dominated by Broward County Democrats. Their failure to remove a dangerous and imminent threat to an entire school resulted in a school massacre. Allowing students to break laws has consequences, and this sanctuary discipline agreement created by government employees did exactly that:
COLLABORATIVE AGREEMENT ON SCHOOL DISCIPLINE -NOV 5, 2013
THIS AGREEMENT entered into between:
1.THE SCHOOL BOARD OF BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA - Ralph Runcie- Supt.
2. CHIEF JUDGE OF THE SEVENTEENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT- Peter M. Weinstein
3. OFFICE OF THE STATE ATTORNEY - Michael J. Satz
4. LAW OFFICE OF THE PUBLIC DEFENDER - Hon. Howard Finklestein
5. SHERIFF OF BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA- Scott Israel
6. FORT LAUDERDALE POLICE DEPARTMENT -Franklin Adderley
7. FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE JUSTICE- Wansley Walters
8. FORT LAUDERDALE BRANCH OF THE NAACP -Marsha Ellison
9. JUVENILE JUSTICE ADVISORY BOARD - Marsha Ellison
and in collaboration and consultation with a committee of stakeholders that include representation from the Broward Teachers Union, Broward Principals and Assistants Association, District Advisory Council, Diversity Committee, Childrens Services Council of Broward County, State Representative Perry Thurston, State Senator Christopher Smith, and State Representative Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed for the purpose of establishing a cooperative relationship between agencies involved in the handling of student misbehavior.
No wonder Nikolas Cruz was never held accountable for his criminal behavior, he’s being educated in a zoo.
ARTICLE I. DEFINITIONS
1.01 Student Misbehavior: breaches of the Code of Student Conduct, disruptions, and other transgressions or omissions by a student that occur on school grounds, school transportation or during a school sponsored or related event.
1.02 Non-Violent Misdemeanors include, but are not limited to:
Disrupting or Interfering with a School Function;
Affray- fighting in public
Theft of less than $300;
Vandalism of less than $1,000;
Loitering or Prowling;
Incidents relating to Alcohol;
Possession of Cannabis (misdemeanor amount only);
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia;
Obstructing Justice without Violence.
Since the sheriff’s been lying to us, the numbers on Cruz’s home visits need to increase. Last I heard, it’s up to 43 BSO deputy visits.
And everyone of those you list should be held to account for this. I do not want to be alarming, but there can be no doubt but that Cruz was not the only miscreant further damaged by the insane program. The others may not act out in the same manner, but there have probably been many lesser crimes committed by those similarly coddled as a result of the crack-brained agreement. (The classic ‘spare the rod & spoil the child0 effect.)
The problem is easy to see when you watch the video below. The problem is that conservatives/Christians see man as basically bad and in need of constrainment whereas liberals/evolutionists think that man is basically good and should be free to show that it is true. History proves the former is correct and the latter is dead wrong:
