Skip to comments.(Pro-2A Student) Kyle Kashuv Interrogated By Broward County Deputies After Range Trip
Posted on 04/23/2018 4:33:59 PM PDT by Simon Green
Kyle Kashuv is a Parkland student who, just like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg, was at Douglas High School the day Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 of his classmates. Unlike Gonzalez and Hogg and many other Douglas survivors, Kashuv has been a lone, persistent student voice in favor of gun rights and the Second Amendment.
Despite his support for the right to keep and bear arms, Kashuv didnt own a firearm and had never fired one. That changed over the weekend when he went to a range with his father. He tweeted stills and video of the range session.
As night follows day, he was attacked on line for daring to fire an AR in a safe and controlled manner. Kashuv no doubt expected the reaction and shrugged it off.
But today, as the Daily Wire reports, when he returned to class, he was informed by Douglas Highs principal that his range tweets had traumatized some of his fellow students. And the reaction didnt end there.
Kashuv was later pulled out of class and interrogated by two school resource officers, Broward County deputies.
Near the end of third period, my teacher got a call from the office saying I need to go down and see a Mr. Greenleaf. I didnt know Mr. Greenleaf, but it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer. I went down and found him, and he escorted me to his office. Then a second security officer walked in and sat behind me. Both began questioning me intensely. First, they began berating my tweet, although neither of them had read it; then they began aggressively asking questions about who I went to the range with, whose gun we used, about my father, etc. They were incredibly condescending and rude.
Then a third officer from the Broward County Sheriffs Office walked in, and began asking me the same questions again. At that point, I asked whether I could record the interview. They said no. I asked if I had done anything wrong. Again, they answered no. I asked why I was there. One said, Dont get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?
They continued to question me aggressively, though they could cite nothing I had done wrong. They kept calling me the pro-Second Amendment kid. I was shocked and honestly, scared. It definitely felt like they were attempting to intimidate me.
I was treated like a criminal for no reason other than having gone to the gun range and posted on social media about it.
Kashuv has criticized the Broward County Sheriff and his band of incompetent men on Face the Nation for their lack of action regarding Cruz leading up to the Parkland shooting and the school resource officers cowardly behavior during the shooting. Observers seeing the Broward deputies interrogation of Kashuv today might conclude that sweating him was simply retaliation for his nationally broadcast statements, but we couldnt possibly comment.
If only any of Sheriff Scott Israels disinterested deputies had spent half as much time investigating Nikolas Cruzs extra-curricular activities, a student with a long and demonstrated history of violence and criminal behavior on the Douglas High campus. Who knows how many lives might have been saved?
Pure and simple.
The interrogation by the security team is outright bullying.
Another shameful act by police and school authorities in Broward County.
There are better ways to get educated than to deal with this crap at a public school.
His mistake was not to record them.
Hero’s emerge at the most unexpected times, and from the most unexpected places.
Looks like this ‘kid’ is going to be one of them.
Wow!......this shouldntt be tolerated by his parents or any of us!
I really like and respect this young man.
What should we do???.
And then tell about what you learned there on Twitter?
Now I'll admit, mentioning it on Twitter was not too wise, given who he is and where they live.
Message to all cops: this isnt your fight unless you make it your fight.
I wonder if these fine resource officers ever interrogated Nikolas Cruz the same way. Each of 39 times they supposedly visited him.
They said they weren't going to let him do that.
He should report them all for sexual misconduct.
BSO deputies truly are pigs. They’ve had a reputation for many years as corrupt and abusive. Sheriff Ken Jenne went to prison for corruption about 15 years ago. Up until then he was a ruthless enforcer and kingmaker for the Broward Democrst Party. He was never a law enforcement professional, just a power hungry politician on the make.
And exactly why the hell does Scott Israel still have his job? Gov. Scott should have suspended him by now. What a disgrace.
Kyle called out the failures of the school administration, county, and police, which facilitated the mass murder by Nikolas Cruz, who only had access to firearms because of said policies and failures. Kyle has faced intimidation by his drone classmates and now from the police. Thugs, who hate the Second Amendment, have no respect for the first.
He was “missed” 39 times.
And when he acted out and killed 17 people, law enforcement cowered in fear.
Yes, we all remember what happened a couple of months ago.
How’s that for snappy.
