FBI Never Contacted Google After "Professional Shooter" YouTube Threat Reported

As we dig further into the monumental breakdown in protocol between the FBI and Florida officials which could have prevented 17 deaths in the Valentines Day massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed on Friday that the FBI never contacted Google - which owns YouTube, after it was reported that suspect Nikolas Cruz, under his own name, said "I'm going to be a professional school shooter" in a YouTube video comment last September.

When the uploader of the video, Ben Bennight, contacted the FBI shortly after Cruz left the comment, officials spoke with him for 20 minutes, after which there was no follow up until the same agent or agents came to his home on Wednesday. 

In a press conference late last week, Special Agent Robert Lansky who is in charge of the Miami FBI division said that the FBI received the tip, however they were "unable to further identify" the person who made the comment, despite conducting "database reviews" and "checks."

"No other information was included with that comment, which would indicate a time, location or the true identity of the person who made the comment," Lasky said. "The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment."

What they didn't do is contact Google - which would have been able to help confirm Cruz's identity. Cruz's IP address, for example, would have allowed the FBI to at minimum know what town the comment came from - narrowing the list of suspects to everyone named "Nikolas Cruz" in the region.

Had they simply followed up, the FBI would have also discovered from Florida's state social services agency that Cruz intended to buy a gun, or that he had been cutting his arms on snapchat. 

FBI investigators could have then called the Broward County Sheriff's department and found out about the 23 times deputies responded to Cruz's home over a seven year period for emergencies including a "mentally ill person, " "child/elderly abuse", "domestic disturbance," and "missing person." 

The last call received by Broward County Sheriff's office on November 30, was a warning a caller who warned that  Cruz is collecting guns and knives. Concerned he will kill himself one day and believes he could be a school shooter in the making."

To top things off, a young woman close to Cruz warned the FBI she was concerned he would "get into a school and just shoot the place up," according to a leaked transcript of her call to the bureau's tip line one month before the massacre.

You know, its just so much, said the caller. I know heshes going to explode. The woman said she was making the call because she wanted a clear conscience if he takes off and, and just starts shooting places up, according to the transcripts which were reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. 

Two different people specifically told authorities from two different agencies that Cruz might shoot up a school. 

And despite all of that, the survivors of the Valentine's Day massacre are being paraded around on national television as puppets for gun control - demonizing gun owners and the NRA. 

Instead of blaming guns, perhaps the cumulative angst of Parkland survivors should be directed towards the monumental failures by the FBI, the Broward County Sheriff's office - whose officers refused to enter the active shooting at the school, and the Florida state social services agency that concluded Cruz did not pose a threat.

The author and anyone butthurt over this is an idiot. Of course the FBI wouldn't contact Google over an implicit threat. Why would they?


What Cruz wrote is shocking, disturbing even, but it's not legally actionable. It's not a targeted, specific, threat. LEOs can't do shit with what Cruz wrote. They can't possibly obtain a subpoena, or a warrant, nothing. How many Nicholas Cruzes are there IN THE ENTIRE WORLD, cuz Teh Interwebz are not limited to Broward Fucking County, and the FBI has no way to determine which of the 1000s of Nicholas Cruzes is the one who wrote that, and so they have absolutely nothing to go on but a common name.


And, we don't want them to be able to subpoena whatever they want. Ever.

It would be nice if we could drop the bullshit and recognize these shootings for what they are. The plan to take guns was conceived in the early 90's as the deep state was achieving TOTAL CONTROL. It has failed.

28 years later, their game is up. You have been offered a chance to leave with your riches. You have chosen death instead. So be it. We want you dead. So it works out for everyone. We want vengance for all the innocent people you have slaughtered to maintain the gravy train and your lust for control. DIE!!

this is not about guns. connect the dots man. 3d printers can now make m16 to infinity. this is about MINORITY REPORT. they will now claim google could have policed better and they will usher in laws to penalize someone for life for making a useless comment. next they are going to tap our fucking brains. watch every single article is about the same thing. apple has face id. dna testing. mass data gathering. its all for the same purpose. philip k dick was like a goddamn nostrradamus alien time traveler for real.

Let's summarize:


- Stooge a kid who was a WHITE Hispanic who was numbnuts enough to publish his ideas on Facefuck

- Stand back while he bought over a dozen assault weapons

- BONUS that the name of the HIGH SCHOOL he attended was the name of someone who was OPPOSED to SWAMP DRAINING

- Get a jew sheriff in charge in the county

- Stage the whole episode when the FBI was under severe criticism

The FBI has a democrat agenda... Gun confiscation. The masses have not warmed to the idea of a loss of their 2nd Amendment. What better way to rile the masses up than to kill a bunch of kids.

The FBI's "5 and out" policy got rid of all the rank and file FBI agents, purposely, so the only people left are communists.

End the FBI.

This "strategy" was "deployed" in the early 1990's. A single term HW slowed the deep state not so much from a dream of a totally enslaved, defenseless population by 2010-2015 or so. The Clinton's had their "own brand" of deep state criminality. A little more "mob" like.

A coup to take out Obama in his second term was planned by loyalists in the military but not executed.

What we are on now is the brink. The end of the deep state. The end of many anti-American activities. They will not be going quietly apparently. Good sense would decide otherwise but..............

Enjoy the show. There will be more deaths of the innocent.

We know there are big statists inside the FBI.  It would be to their advantage to disarm people and repeal our right to bear arms.  And allowing these crimes facilitates that goal, provided their failure to do their job and prevent these crimes, isn't exposed to the public.  I thank Trump for making the information available because Obama would surely have made sure what was reported to the FBI and what it didn't do, was kept secret.  Heck the Broward country sheriff was a big Democrat supporter and you can see pictures of him and Clinton, Obama and Sanders. He has the same motivations.  And Obama even passed regulations keeping the police off school grounds for discipline issues in 2016 that helped lead to the shooting.
