Survivors of deadly school shooting lash out at Trump

Survivors of deadly school shooting lash out at Trump

Broward County sheriff deputies were called to the home of Cruz's mother 39 times between 2011 and 2016.

Cruz, 19, was an orphan with a history of concerning behaviour.

On Wednesday, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School using an AR-15. Those 17 and younger can be held for 12 hours.

Trump also said that people needed to report more to law enforcement.

James and Kimberly Snead, the couple who took in Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old who has been accused in the Wednesday shootings at a Florida high school, said they have experienced a "roller coaster of emotions" and they did not foresee Cruz's alleged actions.

James and Kimberly Snead told Good Morning America's Michael Strahan that they were aware of Cruz's weapons when he moved into their house around Thanksgiving, shortly after his adopted mother died of pneumonia.

Once again he has shown to be a possible disappointment to his Republican voter base, for in response to the Valentine's Day tragedy he has come out in favor of federal action on gun control. Cruz's lawyers said there were repeated warning signs that he was mentally unstable and potentially violent. She also "stated that there has never been any issues with other races or issues with racism in her family". According to the DCF on October 7, 2016, a school official reported that Henderson had "determined that (Cruz) was not at risk to harm himself or others".

Cruz had texted their son and told him he was going to the movies, James Snead said. 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".

Nonetheless, the Florida Department of Children and Families investigation was "closed with no indicators to support the allegations of inadequate supervision or medical neglect".




Cruz and his brother, Zachary, had been adopted, and were raised largely by their mother, Lynda Cruz, especially after their father, Roger P. Cruz, died suddenly in 2004 at the age of 67.

"No", Kimberly said. "We put him on a positive path, trying to heal".

James Snead added: "Everything everybody seems to know, we didn't know". "It's as simple as that".

The husband and wife who took in suspected Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz when he needed a place to live have spoken out.

The charges can bring the death penalty, but prosecutors have not yet said if they will seek capital punishment. Five states have enacted so-called red flag laws, but the effort has not gained traction in Congress.

DCF Adult Protective Services was called on September 28, 2016, to investigate allegations that Nikolas Cruz was being victimized by his caregiver - his mother. These investigations determine if an adult is safe and has access to necessary services.

The newspaper reported investigators ultimately decided that Cruz, then 18, was receiving enough support from mental health professionals and from his school, and any risk in his case was low.

One side of that debate was represented outside the White House as dozens of teens spread their bodies across the pavement to symbolize the dead and call for stronger gun controls, a precursor to a march in Washington planned next month by survivors of the Parkland school shooting and supporters of their cause.

The Senate is also considering boosting spending on mental health programs for schools and giving law-enforcement greater power to involuntarily hold someone considered a danger to themselves. A court must order their release. "I don't know if we were getting ready to leave or getting ready to sit down for dinner or something but it wasn't a good time".
