The Federal Bureau of Investigation has admitted that they were imminently warned, directly, of the Parkland, Florida shooter’s motive, opportunity, and means to commit his crimes.
In a Press Release just posted on their website, the FBI states:
On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him. The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.
Under established protocols, the information provided by the caller should have been assessed as a potential threat to life. The information then should have been forwarded to the FBI Miami Field Office, where appropriate investigative steps would have been taken.
We have determined that these protocols were not followed for the information received by the PAL on January 5. The information was not provided to the Miami Field Office, and no further investigation was conducted at that time.
FBI Director Christopher Wray goes on to say “It’s up to all Americans to be vigilant…” He’s right. We should all be vigilant. We have to be, because they sure as hell aren’t.
