    The suspect in the Parkland shooting told police he heard voices in his head telling him to hurt others and himself ahead of the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, according to a transcript of his interview with a detective. Nineteen-year old Nikolas Cruz told Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective John Curcio shortly after the shooting that he had been hearing a voice in his head since the death of his father and that it had gotten worse after the death of his mother.Cruz described the voice as “the demon” and told the detective that the voice urged...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A newly released transcript shows Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz spat out “kill me” and then cursed as he sat alone in a sheriff’s interrogation room just hours after the massacre that left 17 dead. Broward sheriff’s Detective John Curcio had just left Cruz alone to get him some water when the 19-year-old suspect made that exclamation.
  • Marjory Stoneman Douglas Shooter XXX Asked For Help, But The School 'Didn't Follow(T)

    It’s been six months since XXX XXX, a highly disturbed individual, shot and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. It sparked another round in the gin control wars—and another round that saw liberal gain ground thanks to pro-NRA governors caving to anti-gun mobs; Governors Rick Scott and Phil Scott of Florida and Vermont respectively enacted new gun laws, specifically raising the age to purchase to 21, which is grossly unconstitutional. The NRA is challenging that provision of Florida’s law right now. Yet, that’s the tragedy of this incident. Liberals were quick to blame the...

    School officials “did not follow through” when Nikolas Cruz asked for special assistance months before the massacre, a new report finds. While more than half of the report was redacted, the blacked-out sections of the document could still easily be read by copying and pasting into a separate document, a trick used by The Sun-Sentinel to release the unredacted report on Friday. In Cruz’s junior year, after he had already begun exhibiting behavior so disturbing it led to guidance counselors wanting to have him committed,
  • Apparently Disoriented David Hogg Says High Min. Wage Makes Kids Violent

    Whatever teen anti-gun celebrity David Hogg learned in high school, it apparently wasn’t the English language. It’s that, or he actually wants to increase the number of gun deaths in inner-city communities. Either way, the poster boy for the gun-grabbing left is showing all the world just how confused and ignorant he really is. In recent a Twitter exchange with a conservative commentator, Hogg let his ignorance slip with a colossally nonsensical argument for the left’s favorite economic policy: Raising the minimum wage.
  • Mitchell Gives the Game Away: 'If the Guns Did Not Exist...'

    On Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, two Florida politicians, a Republican and a Democrat, made back-to-back appearances to discuss gun control. Host Andrea Mitchell took a radically different tone with each interviewee – both of whom are seeking statewide elected office in 2018 – thus epitomizing MSNBC’s inescapable liberal bias. While speaking with Republican Florida State Representative Jay Fant, Mitchell assumed an adversarial role, grilling him on his recent vote against a measure to ban assault rifles. Throughout the brief interview, she argued that the Second Amendment was not absolute, citing the late Justice Scalia’s decision in the frequently-referenced District of...

    MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted Friday that the FBI's acknowledged error in not following up on a credible trip on Nikolas Cruz might serve as fodder for critics of the Russia investigation. In a statement, the FBI said Friday that "protocols were not followed" after someone contacted the bureau's Public Access Line on Jan. 5 with concerns about Cruz, who authorities say confessed to carrying out the Florida school shooting this week. The individual provided information in January about Cruz's desire to kill people, erratic behavior, disturbing social media posts, and potential to carry out a school shooting. The FBI...

Local leaders, Pulse nightclub survivors and students from Parkland High School all spoke at the March for Our Lives rally.... Meanwhile down the street “The Big Pro Gun Rally” had 14 speakers including gun activist Kaitlin Bennett. “Gun rights means to me self protection, self preservation of not only myself but also my country,” Bennett says, “We have the most firearms in the nation and we are one of the freest countries because of that.” This rally also advocated for...

    The Parkland students who founded the March For Our Lives organization have partnered with other groups, including the National Organization For Change and the Road to Change, to prepare their "National March On The NRA" event, which is scheduled to take place in front of the NRA's headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia on August 4. The group tweeted out the news that they received permission from the city of Fairfax to hold their rally: In addition to the event in front of NRA headquarters in Virginia, the group is also coordinating events in Washington State, California, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio,...

    Only 28 percent of young adults ages 18-29 say they are “absolutely certain” of voting in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new survey. On the other hand, the Public Religion Research Institute (PPRI) and The Atlantic also found that 74 percent of seniors said they are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections, in what the survey-takers described as a “massive” generational gap in voting intent. Overall, half of Americans are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections, which is about the same compared to the 2014 midterm elections. According to the poll, young adults are...

    Three days after the shooting and robbery at a North Lauderdale store, the Broward Sheriff’s Office arrested a 19-year-old man who turned himself in Friday afternoon in the killing of a Parkland parent. BSO detectives and Broward CrimeStoppers received numerous tips since the release of a surveillance video earlier in the day, according to a BSO release. “The homicide detectives’ investigation led them to an associate of [Tyrone] Fields’ who encouraged him to meet with law enforcement,” according to BSO spokeswoman Joy Oglesby. Fields turned himself in at Fort Lauderdale’s police station. The senseless slaying dismayed the community ....

    A group of Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors and their families filed a lawsuit in federal court on Wednesday alleging that the county and local law enforcement failed to protect the high school students, resulting in “psychological injury and trauma.” The lawsuit claims various school and county officials violated students’ constitutional rights when they did not adequately safeguard Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 students and faculty died during the Feb. 14 shooting. Each of the 15 plaintiffs represented in the lawsuit are students who were at the school on the day of the shooting, according to a press release...

    A steering committee for a Marjory Stoneman Douglas donation fund approved a measure Monday allowing every person who was on the school’s campus at the time of the Florida shooting to be eligible to receive financial compensation. The committee settled upon an allocation formula consisting of four levels of compensation based on the severity of those effected in the Parkland massacre, reported The Sun Sentinel. The next of kin for the 17 killed will each receive $400,000. The 18 gunshot victims will receive varying amounts with outpatients receiving $35,000 and inpatient payouts dependent on the length of the hospital stay....

    Full title: School Security Guard Who Didn’t Stop the Parkland Shooter Was Suspended for Sexually Harassing Students A disciplinary panel recommended Andrew Medina be fired. He was not. Lest you thought we were finished with tales of unfathomable incompetence on the part of Broward County, Florida, authority figures, consider this: The first Marjory Stoneman Douglas security guard who spotted Nikolas Cruz on campus and took no action to detain him was previously suspended for sexually harassing students. Due to his inaction during the shooting, Andrew Medina was initially reassigned to an administrative position elsewhere in the Broward County school system....
  • New Book ‘#DUPED’ Shoots Down All Of Hogg’s Rhetoric

    06/26/2018 4:30:02 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 17 replies ^ | 6/23/18 | Molly Prince
    Constitutional lawyer and New York Times best-selling author Mark Smith combats David Hogg’s rhetoric in his latest book, “#Duped,” which serves as a response to the newly-minted gun-control activist and Parkland graduate’s recently released book, “#NeverAgain.” Smith exposes the left’s celebration and exploitation of students in order to advance so-called common sense gun control. “#Duped: How The Anti-Gun Lobby Exploits The Parkland School Shooting — And How Gun Owners Can Fight Back” deconstructs the progressive narrative and illustrates how advocates use children to promulgate an agenda that is so unpalatable they have failed to otherwise enact. Smith writes: From a...
