The FBI Keeps Missing Mass Shooters Before It's Too Late

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolas Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders.

The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15.

Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar — or should have been — before they carried out their deadly attacks.

Dylann Roof, who in 2015 shot nine people at a black church in Charleston, was allowed to purchase his weapon in part because of errors by FBI agents during the background check process, the agency said.

They didn't do anything because it involved the public school system. The zero tolerance of always calling the police was replaced during obama's term with what amounts to either never calling the police or just calling them to diffuse and not even a report is taken. Democrat social ideas are now masqueraded as school policy.
Trayon Martin was allowed to progress into the thug he did because of Broward County policies. Thank God we had George Zimmerman to ventilate him before he shot up a school or murdered some other innocent person.
The problem is most of the US public school subscribe to this insanity.

Yes, but they are pretty good at burning kids alive in Waco.

Democrat school policies don't attempt to change behaviors they just change and manipulate the numbers. The democrat voters none of which can strike anyone as being above the imbecile IQ level always fall for tricks like this so they keep on doing it.

They didnt do anything BECAUSE they need this to happen. They didnt do anything for the exact reasons they didnt do anything about the highest corruption in our Country, the most vile criminals escape prosecution because the fbi is the same corrupt gang and enemy as their masters. They only exist to help, cover and aid in the taking over of our Country.

Seems to me it wouldn't be that difficult to install monitored video cameras in all schools that would see a guy carrying a rifle wandering the halls in time to prevent these horrors.

2:38 that school had cameras. Some kind of confusion went on because they were delayed.
I agree with the President. All public schools need to be turned into fortresses. Many people don't know this but in areas on the Western Shore the county PD's have substations set up on troubled area public schools. Uniformed police officers are on the grounds the whole time the school is open. Police officers in schools and on school property is not anything new. This particular school was huge. It took up a large city block. There were over 12 buildings and they were all large and several stories. One deputy in that large an area is insane. One armed person on any size school property is insane. Something like what happened in Parkland could happen or a shooter could set a trap and kill a lone officer before even entering a building. That is why others need to be armed.
