Florida’s Republican Governor, Rick Scott, is demanding that the FBI reveal in detail how it failed to heed warnings that the Parkland school shooter was a potential threat.
“Today I am calling on the FBI to immediately release all details surrounding the bureau’s failure to act on a tip it received, including all details and protocols,” Scott said in a Mondaystatement.
“Last week, our state and nation was shocked to learn of the FBI’s inexcusable inaction after receiving a tip informing them of Cruz’s desire to carry out a school shooting. The FBI’s failure to initiate an investigation raises many questions, and the victims’ families deserve answers now,” Scott said.
The FBI admitted that it may have broken its own protocols by allowing the tips about accused shooter Nickolas Cruz to slip unaddressed through the cracks.
