School walkouts, sit-ins planned after Florida shooting

School walkouts, sit-ins planned after Florida shooting

A statistic that claimed the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was the 18th this year is a misleading one, according to The Washington Post. As families begin burying their dead, authorities are questioning whether they could have prevented the attack at the high school where a gunman, Nikolas Cruz, took several lives. Two gun shows and a rally calling for the firearm safety legislation also were due to be held nearby.

Florida's child welfare agency investigated after he cut himself in an online video but found him stable, according to state records. "Mr. Cruz has fresh cuts on both his arms. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for", said a report written by department officials after investigators interviewed the teenager, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The agency concluded Cruz had not been mistreated by his mother, was receiving adequate care from a mental health counselor and was attending school.

Representatives for the Department of Children and Family Services did not respond to requests from comment.

The FBI admitted Friday it received a chilling warning in January from a tipster who said Cruz could be planning a mass shooting, but that agents failed to follow up.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, killed 17 people at his old high school in Florida on Wednesday. The agency was called to investigate.

The disclosure spread angry disbelief among Parkland residents and led Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott to call for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.

"We have spoken with victims and families and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy", Wray said in a statement on Friday.

The organization is encouraging teachers and students to organize sit-ins, walkouts, marches and any other events to protest gun violence in schools.

"T$3 he efforts to paint the latest shooting, which was truly disgusting, as another in a series of mass shootings compressed so closely in time is simply not an accurate reflection of reality", said the Daily Wire in a Wednesday post.

U.S. President Donald Trump and some other political leaders have said mental illness prompted the massacre. Ex-cadets on the program described Cruz as an excelling marksman.

According to CNN, Cruz posted disparaging comments about Jews, African Americans and gays in a private chat group on the social media network Instagram.

"Because of these gun laws, people that I know, people that I love, have died, and I will never be able to see them again", Delaney Tarr, a student at the school, told the crowd swamping the steps and courtyard at the federal courthouse.

Cruz's attorneys at the Broward County Public Defender's Office could not immediately be reached for comment.

"We just want to tell Parkland that you are not alone".

"We find no fault with Everytown's raw data, which is useful and important, only with the overly broad way it is categorized and then parroted in the media", said Snopes. "Let's not allow fear to win".
