“Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”--Florida’s Department of Children and Families, investigating a violent, depressed, autistic, gun-waving mental patient
Every level of government failed in Florida. The School Board, the Sheriff's Dept., Child Services, the FBI--they all failed. Any one of them could have prevented this shooting had they taken action.
None of them wanted to do the paperwork.
The School board didn't use the law.
The Sheriff's Dept. didn't use the law
Child Services didn't use the law.
The FBI didn't use the law.
Nobody used the laws we already have--so let's pass some new laws!
This wasn't a Gun Control failure. It was a Government failure.
These kids are being used--and used by the same people who endangered them in the first place.
Instead of going to Tallahassee and blaming the NRA, the students should be in the principal's office, at the School Board meeting, at the Dept. of Children and Families, at the Sheriff's Office and at the FBI. Every single level of government coddled or ignored this shooter.
But they're not old enough to figure that out. That's why they make great patsies.
The School Board wasn't just neglecting the law--they were actively suppressing arrests and even hiding crimes.
They thought they were ending the "School-to-Prison pipeline"--but they were actually guaranteeing it.
Not to mention the School-to-Cemetery pipeline.
No wonder the School Board paid for the buses to Tallahassee. They wanted to use those kids to blame somebody else for their own deadly failures.
