Say Something, Do Nothing – FBI Statement On Parkland Florida School Shooting…

The specificity here is pretty damning.  The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting.  The FBI took no action.

WASHINGTON DC FBI – 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 said:

“We are still investigating the facts. I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public. It’s up to all Americans to be vigilant, and when members of the public contact us with concerns, we must act properly and quickly.

“We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy. All of the men and women of the FBI are dedicated to keeping the American people safe, and are relentlessly committed to improving all that we do and how we do it.”  (link)

The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

[…] Mateen’s background, however, was checked again by G4S in 2013 after the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office requested he be removed from the St. Lucie County Courthouse patrol after he allegedly made derogatory comments to a deputy.

A deputy at the courthouse mentioned the Middle East to Mateen, who reacted by threatening the deputy, said Sheriff Ken Mascara, who attended the Wednesday night meeting at the community’s Island Club.

Omar became very agitated and made a comment that he could have al-Qaida kill my employee and his family,” Mascara said Wednesday. “If that wasn’t bad enough, he followed it up with very disturbing comments about women and followed it up with very disturbing comments about Jews and then went on to say that the Fort Hood shooter was justified in his actions.

The FBI launched an investigation into Mateen after Sheriff’s Office officials reported the incident to the agency. As part of its investigation, the FBI examined Mateen’s travel history, phone records, acquaintances and even planted a confidential informant in the courthouse to “lure Omar into some kind of act and Omar did not bite,” Mascara said. The FBI concluded Mateen was not a threat after that, Mascara said.  (read more)

Obviously the apparatus of the bureaucracy within the FBI needs a top-down review and re-focus.

    I thought how convenient, it is for the Mueller’s team to implicate 13 Russian nationals with no hope of extradition or no expectation of the 13 saying you are wrong Mr. Mueller and here is why.

      Ponder this as well:
      1)The timing of the announcement (discounting that it was coincidentally on a Friday) He needed to justify his budget and continued existence.
      2) They knew there was no lawbreaking by the Trump Campaign all along. These Russian blog posters are scapegoats. They needed scapegoats before they could let the world know PDJT is not guilty.
      3) No mention of Obama interfering in Israel or Russia. Tammy Bruce has been pointing this out. Why do we get to meddle in other people’s governments, but scream bloody murder when someone only toys with us? What makes us so morally superior?
      4) President Putin loves his country and wants the best for it, just like President Trump wants to MAGA. Both countries are besieged by Islamic terrorists and oligarchs. The Globalists and neocons will stop at nothing to keep the two leaders from cooperating to rid their respective countries of the cancer wresting them apart.

      My hope for tweet of the month to send the “children of disobedience” into a tizzy:

      “Will trade you one George Soros for 12 Russian nationals. Your people can do their time in a federal pen of their choosing”

    It is just so Convenient. Every time the American People and our President get attention focused on corruption within the various agencies, something like this happens and we get DEMS screaming gun control. Shooting 15 members of the Republicans in Congress didn’t work. An attempted train wreck didn’t work. “Someone go nudge that man down in Florida.”

      You have it. With the NSA spying on social media, the worst of the worst
      know who the “useful idiots” are. And, they seem to keep them in reserve
      for when distraction needs to occur. The swamp is about to go down?
      Have a horrific shooting incident. Crowd people that were affected on CNN,
      interview them with leading questions, all leading to either blame Trump
      or we need gun control. Stage rent a mob protests nationwide ( don’t you
      wish you had the money Soros pays out for signs and bus rental?).

      One big question I have with this particular incident: How did nutboy
      find the money, ( or who gave it to him) for all the firepower and ammunition?

      Read his bio. Who would hire this demented jerk? His parents are dead.
      Did he inherit some $$, get some life insurance so that he could go out
      and buy an armory? I can’t see him saving up the money from a paper
      route/ McDonalds. Word was out on this guy in the area. Where did the
      money come from? Insurance? The feds that were tracking him, and
      standing aside until the “right” moment? Which, in their minds, is after
      the fact.

    Someone started that 97% of FBI donated to Hillary’s campaign. If True, that means that these people believe in progressive ideas of which the unfairness of law enforcement, especially in the case of minorities, is prominent. So if you believe that minorities are unfairly targeted by law enforcement, hire might that flesh out in your execution of your duties as a law enforcement officer? It may explain whatwere


  5. Laura Wesselmann says:

    FBI too busy undermining Trump to do their real job.



    The FBI has proven over and over their inability to trace these killers who have been outed by citizens, only to have many deaths to deal with.

    Does it take a genius to realize that the proper, the ONLY sensible approach to the problem is to turn off the tap! To hell with the FBI’s excuses. They have plenty of manpower to be playing with our national security by sabotaging our President, but they don’t have manpower to keep tabs on outed persons of interest?!

    This gives more vitality to Trump’s statement that we must block entry to America until we can determine what is going on. Not just with jihadist… but now also with the traitors in our gov’t.

    Every episode like this, where a person is outed, ignored, and then commits murders adds to the
    desperation of Americans who expect our government to protect us. Instead we get a government that is at least as invested in destroying our nation as are the murderers.

    This cannot be maintained as a status quo for very much longer.

    Here’s a horrible thought – what if Holder/Obama/Clinton/Comey, et al had orders to do nothing about the threats by unbalanced/sociopathic people like the FL School Shooter – because they wanted another case to push their agenda to take away our guns?

      Ever since I figured out that Obama was at least a muslim sympathizer if not a full muslim believer on jihad, I have thought exactly that scenario that you bring up. Nothing matters to the Left more than bringing down America in a thousand different ways and venues.

      In such a free nation as America, they are in a target-rich environment. Our very freedoms
      are their best weapons against us.

      Historically, republics that favor liberty do not survive long, compared to some far less free political arrangements. It may be too optimistic to imagine a constitutional republic such as ours surviving for 1000 years without occassional revolts and civil wars, simp[ly because those Leftists within are so determined to subvert the constitution and the freedoms it affords that nothing but death will stop them.

      In other words, they may as well tell us that they will kill us if we do not surrender to their demands. That would bring in the rule of reciprocity, i.e. if you threaten to kill me, I’ll try to kill you first. But they do not do so. The muslims do threaten all lives or freedoms of their enemies, but these cowardly Leftists don’t have the courage to do it.

      Such a dilemma.


      • Michael J. Machnica says:

        Our founding fathers knew about the Muslim threat because of their history (re: they were primarily the pirates mentioned in our Constitution) of infiltration and occupation. The framers of our nation designed and relied on the power the Presidency to keep them out by granting him such broad sweeping power of who can come in.

        Historian William “Bill” Federer has an awesome collection of messages on Islam. Books and DVD’s and a limited number of past episodes available here.

        Previous episodes rotate through the year. As far as I know, he still has material on YouTube as well.


    • Your Tour Guide says:

      Fully agree. See the uptake in the sheer number of incidences since
      Obama took office. See how seamlessly CNN, Washington Post,
      NYT, Huffington Post, and all the rest default into “gun control” mode.

      Watch the tear jerking narrative that begins before the dust has even
      begun to settle. They know. It’s also why they conveniently quit tracking
      jihadist nuts, or arresting them before someone’s hurt. Someone is grooming
      these people for when needed. The timing is just wayyyyyy too convenient.
      Last point, on the jihadists, and not being able to criticize them. It’s not
      a protect the muslim religion thing. It’s profiling, something everyone else
      can’t do. They know that the worst of the jihadists are capable of huge
      carnage. We’re not allowed to profile them, because some of them are
      being kept on call, for the “right” moment. When distraction is called for.

    This infuriates me. My own kids were at a school where a horrible shooting took place in 1998. A bullet penetrated my 4th grade daughter’s classroom wall. 21 shot, 6 killed. If I was a parent of a deceased child in Florida and learned that our FBI failed to prevent her killing, I would do something stupid and go to prison for it. We need to dismantle these federal agencies before their incompetence and corruption results in yet another senseless tragedy. One of these days, they will piss off the wrong people.

    Very disturbing that the FBI spent lots of time and wasted valuable resources falsifying FISA applications so they could investigate Carter Page, wasted even more time and resources with the Steele nonsense, and yet when they get two tips about a possible domestic terrorist, they do absolutely nothing. Wray needs to go. It’s obvious that he’s in way over his head. Perhaps Rudy Giuliani would have been a better choice, as he certainly wouldn’t have had any reservations about cleaning house on the 7th floor to get rid of the rotten management.

    I’m not fan of the FBI, anymore than anyone else. Sundance brings up the Tsarnev’s and the guy in Orlando. They were muslim’s, two of which they were warned about and another they knew about. They had an interest in them. A link to terrorism and terrorist activities.

    First, there is no federal statute for, Murder. Mass or otherwise. When the FBI investigates something like Orlando or Boston, it does it under the umbrella of a, terrorism investigation that resulted in the deaths of people, not a murder investigation. They are there to assist, otherwise.

    Parkland, Florida is a local matter and should be/have been handled by the Broward County SO. If anything, the FBI should have taken the tip and given it to the Broward Cty SO Deputies that are assigned to the JTTF Task Force or any other BCSO deputy that is assigned to the numerous federal task forces that local cops are part of, who in turn could have investigated it themselves, or passed that info off to a Detective(s) in the Broward Cty SO. Who then could have done all the appropriate research, as is their duty. And, for all we know, that is exactly what happened and no one from BCSO is saying anything because all the heat is on the FBI.

    If Gov Scott, or anyone else, wants to know where the ball was dropped, get a subpoena for all the records and find out what agent the tip was assigned to. And then take it from there. Believe it or not, local cops have much more authority than the Feds, especially SHERIFFs. Sheriffs are elected officials and the highest ranking LEO in the county. He has the authority to lock up the whole FBI office if he wants to and there isn’t a thing anyone can do about it.

      Thank you for the education. It’s a shame such knowledge isn’t known by regular citizens. It’s also a shame that there is so little communication between the feds and local law enforcement, if that is what happened here. It could have also been that since the shooter was already known to local LE that the tipster thought the feds would be more responsive. I hope Gov. Scott will pursue your suggestions to find out exactly what happened. It would be a sadly belated, but very valuable way to educate the public in the best way to direct vital information about potentially dangerous individuals.


    • William F Buckley's Ghost says:

      BSO was well aware that the kid was a loose cannon. They didn’t need the FBI to tell them!


      • zaq123 says:

        You’re right. 100%. But he isn’t the only one. While that doesn’t comfort you, me, anyone else and certainly not the families of those that died, he is one of many that are “problems” for local law enforcement.
        Again, I agree that BSO was aware of the kid, but my question is … Were they aware of his online statements and posted behaviors?

        Again, again, before anyone shows up at the local FBI office, with pitchforks and torches(which I see no problem with), they need to find out how the information was handled. Did the tip go to an agent, who saw the email and deleted it without reading it? Did they forward it to BCSO? We have to find out what was done with the information, before we demolish the building.

        Here’s the precarious thing about law enforcement, having been in it for close to 20 years. One decision can lead to many things: death of oneself, death of others, death of 17 innocent high school kids, life in prison. As a friend once told me, every cop is one decision away from ruining their lives or someone else’s.

        If the person responsible for not acting on this is found, and it shouldn’t be too hard to do, then they need to be held accountable. Pure and simple. They made that, one decision, and now they have to answer for it. Once that is found out, I could care less what happens to them.

      The LOCALS also dropped the ball! FBI should not take all the blame!

      1 – Local Law Enforcement had made 39 calls to the home because of this kid’s behavior since early childhood.

      2 – The School Administration (should have filed restraining order at the very least) and School Board (policies, no armed security on school campuses) was negligent to say the least!!!

      3 – Family that housed the boy saw his gun, knew his mental state, history and did not get proper help.

        5. Parents may have been overwhelmed with two problem kids, needed to ask for and get more help.

        6. Psychiatrists/Psychologists should have been able to see the risk. Psychology is a ‘young science’ and has been overtaken with leftist activists trying to normalize the abnormal since the 1970s at least. Many mental health professionals are not very capable of helping or making the patient well – and – many do not have good judgment – or may react out of personal issues or political/ideological viewpoints.

        7. The drugs for treating mental illness are not panaceas. Drugs help control some symptoms, but not others, while creating new negative effects/symptoms and can cause thoughts, feelings and behaviors that endanger the patient and the public!


  13. Coast says:

    Is it possible that a good portion of our government, including some at various state levels, are not doing what they can to prevent school shootings? After Sandy Hook, you would think there would be armed personnel at every school, and more than just one person. But yet, here we are…essentially gun free zones, no armed teachers, no real security, the FBI and sheriff not acting on valid information, etc. And it my understanding that the sheriff in the Douglas High School county is a big democrat. Could we have reached that point in order to destroy the 2nd Amendment?

      Satan is the God of this world-
      2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

      He was in charge of directing music and worship by the heavenly host towards the LORD God. Musical instruments were built into him
      Ezekiel 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

      So it only goes to say that he can give great musical talent to those that follow him. In the latter years of Prince’s life, reportedly by some people he realized this and reversed course.
      Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
      9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

      Satan has literally millions of ways to deceive. But rather than fixating on satanic sublimal suggestions and overt blasphemy, we are to use the personal reading of word of God DAILY as a defense.
      Romans 16:19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

      1Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

      Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    • Donna in Oregon says:

      Thank you for pointing that out.

      Here it is from the FBI website (try not to snicker please)

      Shortly after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Director Robert Mueller published a new set of FBI priorities, which indicated counterterrorism as the Bureau’s top priority. Recognizing that a list alone was not sufficient to drive long-term organizational change, Director Mueller led the implementation of the Strategy Management System (SMS), an adapted version of the Balance Scorecard methodology as a tool to measure and track strategic performance. SMS provided us with a framework for reorienting the Bureau towards an intelligence-driven, national security organization in 2006.

      This process provides a formal method for defining, communicating, aligning, executing, and assessing strategy, and for making strategy a part of daily activities and decision-making. Our process ensures that entities throughout the Bureau align their activities to the FBI strategy and integrate strategy into program management. The FBI strategy provides an execution framework. Objective performance at the enterprise and division levels are measured, tracked, and reviewed on a quarterly basis.

      The Bureau’s leadership team uses quarterly strategy review meetings on objectives, measures, and initiatives. During these meetings, the leadership team discusses performance and makes decisions on how to allocate resources in order to improve organizational execution.

      In 2016, Director Comey unveiled a number of changes to the way in which the FBI managed its long-term strategy. His updated process emphasized “where are we going” (strategic) over “what are we doing” (tactical). Reflecting the Director’s themes—leadership, cyber, intelligence, and operations integration, and reduce administration workload— our updated strategy is more simplified and streamlined. The FBI has not changed the direction we are heading or the nature of our work. We do, however, want to ensure that our strategy:

      Is simple and accurately reflects the organization’s top priorities
      Ensures horizontal and vertical alignment across the Bureau
      Ensures that our executives have a clear role and are held accountable for executing the strategy
      FBI Mission and Vision
      At the heart of the FBI strategy is our mission statement: a description of who we are and what we do. The statement reflects both the core of our diverse responsibilities and the FBI’s rigorous obedience to the rule of law, which governs all of our actions.

      “The mission of the FBI is to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States.”

      Our vision statement captures the essence of what defines success for the FBI. It describes where we want our organization to go.

      “Ahead of the threat through leadership, agility, and integration.”


      It goes on from Mission to the FBI Strategy. I couldn’t read anymore. Weak stomach after James Comey said “rigorous obedience to the rule of law”…..


  20. Some heads have to roll for the missions to be really accountable and that’s why it would be better left to the local authorities. Media loons don’t really care. They are using those kids on TV today for vague purposes and no real results. Should be the local police authorities with real police power taking the guns from the kid.
