The shooting left 14 students and three teachers dead.
Many people protest the fact the U.S government seems to be used to a cycle in which after a school shooting occurs, US officials send "thoughts and prayers" and then forget about the subject until the next school shooting.
"Everything everybody seems to know we didn't know", James Snead said. He said the state's Baker Act - which gives law enforcement the ability to involuntarily take someone suffering from mental illness to a facility to be examined if they are an immediate threat to themselves or others - needs to be expanded.
While his younger brother Zachary remained at that home, Cruz returned to Broward County to live with a friend, and stayed at the Pompano Beach home of James and Kimberly Snead. Cruz had been staying with a friend of his mother's after she died November 1 of pneumonia, according to the Times.
"We feel heartfelt sorrow for the families involved", James Snead said. If one of us wasn't home he knew that. Cruz was formerly a member of the school's JROTC program. He faced disciplinary action five times while attending Marjory Stoneman Douglas High from January 2016 to February 2017, WPLG reported. The school counselor expressed concern with the department, according to the report, and said she and her staff wanted to "ensure that the assessment of Henderson was not premature". James Snead told CNN that he believed he had the only key to the safe until last week's shooting, when he concluded that Cruz must have had his own key. We've seen this before.
Prosecutors have said it is too early on for them to say whether or not they will be offering Cruz any type of plea deal.
"Really, Nik? Really?" she yelled. The Sneads told the Sun-Sentinel that Cruz had told him he was anxious Deschamps was trying to steal the money coming to him. "I was furious. Heartbroken". I simply ask that two steps be added in the process of obtaining a gun in America: universal background checks and mental health evaluations. This wasn't the person we knew. They also knew that Cruz was a gun owner, but admitted in a recent interview with CBS News that they didn't have a careful inventory of his weapons.
"They deserve and we deserve to have them confined, and when they're examined and somebody says they're ready to be released, they should be released and they shouldn't be able to come over with an order and have us give them their handguns", Israel said.
Nevertheless, personnel at the FBI's call center would "absolutely not" ever be working on the Russian Federation case, the official said. "Everything everybody seems to know, we didn't know". The Sneads said taking him in was the right thing to do. It said: "I'm going to be a professional school shooter", and it came from a user named Nikolas Cruz. Authorities were unable to verify the identity of the poster.
Roxanne Deschamps also had Zachary Cruz, the brother of shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz, involuntarily committed to a mental facility shortly after the massacre, the New York Post reported, citing a family source. If one were to still manage to pass these tests and an alert were to go out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation then they would actually be able to allocate resources to investigating.
