The FBI Now Admits It Could Have Prevented The Florida High School Shooting

Authored by Carey Wedler via TheAntiMedia.org,

Amid the fallout from the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, FL, that left 17 dead, the FBI and local law enforcement received widespread criticism for their inability to prevent the shooting despite multiple warning signs and opportunities.

On Tuesday, the FBI admitted these failures to the House Judiciary Committee during a hearing focused on how the bureau handled tips about Nikolas Cruz prior to the massacre.

FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich met with members of the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, acknowledging that, as the House Judiciary Committee’s press release put it, “opportunities were missed.”

That release summarized the takeaways, which have already been highlighted in media reports:

In September 2017, the FBI received an Internet tip from a video blogger about a threatening comment posted to a YouTube video the blogger had posted. The comment stated, ‘I am going to be a professional school shooter,’ and was posted under the username ‘nikolas cruz.’”

According to the hearing, an FBI office in Mississippi received that tip, but after officials investigated it, they closed the case because “it lacked personal identifiable information on the user who posted the threatening comment” (the username “nikolas cruz” was evidently not enough for the agents to go on).

Apparently, however, the agents could have done more:

The agents tasked with the case could have requested assistance from YouTube to attempt to identify the user who left the comment, but determined that the United States Attorney’s Office in that region was unlikely to agree to such a request.”

On another occasion, a friend of the Cruz family called the FBI tip line and, according to Bowdich, provided sufficient information for the bureau to follow up. But as the press release noted, the call taker did not ask any standard investigative probing questions during the call despite the caller saying she worried Cruz “going to explode” and that she feared him “getting into a school and just shooting the place up.”

The agent who took the call spoke to their supervisor, but that conversation was not documented. Worse, as the press release summarized:

At the time, the call taker was able to connect information about Nikolas Cruz to the September 2017 tip about the threatening YouTube comment. Despite these connected dots, the call taker and supervisor decided to not pursue the matter further and the case was closed.”

They also declined to contact local authorities even though the caller told them Parkland police were also aware of the threat Cruz posed. Better information sharing between federal and local law enforcement may have prevented the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,” the summary of the hearing noted.

Bowdich admitted “there were failures and that corrective actions will be taken,” including conducting separate reviews of the two above instances and providing better training for call takers working the tip line.

Though the FBI is often glorified in entertainment and has received increased support in recent months thanks to its its pursuit of potential corruption within the Trump administration, the government agency has a long history of nefariousness.

Though it is successful in using informants to instigate potential terror attacks, then foiling them and taking credit for keeping the public safe, it appears that despite its tip line, widespread surveillance methods, and immense manpower, the agency continues to fail to live up to its reputation.

No, the agency continues to live up to its reputation, just not the reputation it wants.  They have even failed to foil crimes they started.

No problem, now press forward with the Coryn-Feinstein gun grabber bill.

It seems Trump is intent on joining sides with these traitors just to get something done.

If Trump wants to put people back to work then why is he trying to put people out of work by joining with all people Diane Feinstein to implement a weapons ban

We had one traitor today sign a bill in Florida to infringe on our rights. He could get away with it since he's not running for re-election.

After watching this video it's becoming quite apparent Trump is not the 2nd Amendment supporter he claimed to be.

Watch Dianne Feinstein Erupt With Glee After Trump Seems To Endorse Her Assault Weapons Ban

This guy ain't playing 4D chess he is outright agreeing with the gun grabbers.

The FBI is an above the law organized crime operation. It never tells the truth. The FBI has a history of political killings and false flag political crimes.

It should be abolished and all of the 17 intelligence agencies need to be restructured and reformed.

The problem is, if Clinton got in, it would have been us who hung. That's the main reason Trump was elected.

Now we can see what Obama was all about, a race war kill off of White middle class American Christians, a replay of the communist Khazar take over of Russia in 1917, the genocide of over 20 million white middle class Christians.

Now no matter what, the guns have to be taken to allow the kill off.

In Obama era, veterans were secretly captured for post on Facebook, now it's started again. I have seen documents telling veterans to turn in their guns from the VA. SAW IT YESTERDAY.

Do not join the military of this country, it is a GREAT LIABILITY AND AFTER GETTING OUT, YOU WILL BE ABUSED BY EVERY SHIT EATER UNDER THE SUN.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE BEING LIED TO ABOUT THE VA, THE VA CLINICS ARE KILL CENTERS FOR WOMEN HATING MEN, HOMOSEXUALS, LEFTIST AND A HOST OF DERANGED NUT CAKES WITH A POLITICAL AGENDA.

I WANT TO LEAVE THE US BECAUSE A KILL OFF IS COMING, THE FAKE JEWS HAVE CREATED EVIL BEYOND ALL EVIL.

I WATCHED FOR OVER 60 YEARS WHAT THE ARMIES OF FAKE JEWS HAVE DONE, WE WERE TAUGHT BY CHRISTIAN PREACHERS TO NOT QUESTION, AND TO LAY DOWN AND DIE.

THE KILL OFF IS COMING. GET READY AND HIDE YOUR WEAPONS.

HIDE YOUR GUNS, NOW, I HAVE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, VA POLICE GOING OUT IN THE COMMUNITY TO DRAG VETERANS IN TO THE VA, BLOODIED AND UNCONSCIOUS. NO REPORT IN MEDIA, IT IS ACCEPTABLE TO DO THIS.

DO NOT JOIN, IT IS BAD AND FUCK THIS SHIT ABOUT THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, THE MILITARY IS NOW A MERCENARY FORCE, THEY SERVE MONEY NOT AMERICA.

Sure they'll admit to this (something that they were directly involved with), but they won't admit to collusion with Hillary/Brown Clown or any of their fellow conspirators in the massive charade they're responsible for (something they were also directly involved with).  Admitting to a lesser mistake leads one to believe that if they were involved in ANY WRONGDOINGS, they would "Pony up" and assume responsibility for them.  Short answer, No.

Perfectly timed False Flag Shooting = More Alphabet Agency Bullshit.

The FBI Now Admits It Could Have Prevented The Florida High School Shooting

My response: How do we move forward with healing? JUSTICE and FORGIVENESS are the keys to move forward.

My real concern is that the COWARDS OF BROWARD country are CORRUPT TO THE CORE and need to be removed from their jobs permanently. The FBI also has some culpability in this event as well.

People in authority need to be fired, arrested, charged with murder, and jailed.

Well, not always.

Sometimes the police show up before the shooting even gets started.

they have done experiments and indeed there is a movie called "the experiment" and what it shows is that straight off the street, when one person is given power over another, those given that power almost always ABUSE IT... the writing is on the wall... you have the right to bear arms so that they may not be taken if your arms are taken what will you defend your other rights with?  please move to mexico or chicago if you don't like guns and scare easily with responsibility. fuck you

The optics of this admission on the part of the FBI, and the disclosure of the scanner call recording and Broward county response to the shooting, on the same damn day that a GOP (RINO) cocksucking Governor passes legislation to undermine the 2nd amendment and undermine a RIGHT the supreme court has ruled upon is bad optics at best, and one of the reasons why conspiracy theories and people blame these events as being staged and coordinated by government. 

https://www.nratv.com/series/the-dl/episode/the-dl-season-1-episode-9-g…

This short ten minute video explains those human rights of not being beholden to inept responses to protect your life and your family!  End of story.. a right not with the caveat protect with a certain sized effort, or at a certain age, or at a certain wait, or at a certain zipcode!  

And that is what makes the Florida governor such a cocksucker and why the FBI should have immediately taken action to discipline PRIOR to this fucking legislation being passed, that is why Broward cops needed again to be held accountable PRIOR to legislation being passed, because the gutless cocksucking politicians knee-jerk legislation that meets all the optics of an irresponsible conclusion: Cops at fault, FBI at fault, gun restrictions punish the populace.. this must be by design.

So the same cocksuckers who snatch guns accelerate and expand the environments in which gun crimes can occur and more failed responses can occur in another cycle of cocksucker governor Florida type responses.

And you fuckers who think we like either side of the political aisle, that we are in any manner impressed in how and what our tax dollars are spent, or the quality of the fucking management.. if you think we like either side, YOU ARE FUCKING WRONG!

The GOP RINO cocksuckers assure an angrier and more fringe leaning primary because of the stupid fucking behavior of the psychopaths committing crimes and the cocksucker inefficient assholes responding to it.  So today's asshole of the day is Rck Scott, and tomorrows asshole of the day is Rick Scott, and that asshole remains a stupid fucking asshole because he used his office to do anything but demand accountability where the actual problems reside and instead true to a cocksuckers nature, undermined civil rights instead!

https://www.nratv.com/series/the-dl/episode/the-dl-season-1-episode-9-g…

What part of this is a right does that dumb cocksucking asshole not understand?

There Was No Shooting at Parkland!!!

Entirely STAGED False Flag where No One Died!!!

Even this phony "Admission" by the FBI admitting "Blame", is part of this Staged Farce, to Try and make people believe wrongly that there was a "Shooting"!

 

All of this is a "Smoke screen", to Try and keep the American people from asking, "Where are the security videos from Inside the school, showing the actual shooting"?

Keep Demanding: "WHERE ARE THE VIDEOS OF THE SHOOTING"???

"The police usually show up after the show is over."

Or cower behind vehicles until the shooting stops.

Should get real interesting when the Millennials become the majority of LEO's. They show up 2 hours late, or never show up at all. They take lots of selfies with dead victims.

Reminds me of the movie "Demolition Man" with Stallone, where the cops spend the day handing out ridiculous citations, but unable to fight real crime. I guess its another movie intended as pure sarcasm about american society that is turning into reality.

Admits?

This kid is a deep state op.

SSRI's not to be given to people under 25. (30 preferrably) The brain is not fully developed until then.

If you have a bad brain, they used to put you in the house. Now, you are a deep state op. to help collect guns from a cranky populous. He varied from the conditioning by not killing himself. Conducting the op in Broward County Corruption Central seems to have backfired.

"SSRI's not to be given to people under 25. (30 preferrably) "

SSRI' drugs should not be given to people period! The Las Vega Shooter was in his 60's.

SSRI drugs are just another gimmick like diet pills, but for mental problems. Doctors like to hand out pills because its quick and easy. For diet, exercise & eating healthly. For mental issues, healthly lifestyle and getting people to focus on goals & improving oneself. Put the social media down and focus in living. Social media has got to be the biggest mind-F*ck ever!

Happiness and success won't be found at the bottom of a pill\booze bottle!
