Parkland Student Activists Ignore Broward County School Failure Because NRA! [VIDEO]

On August 3rd, 2018, per Judge Elizabeth Scherer’s order, Broward County School district reluctantly released their internal investigation regarding the Parkland shooter. By a quirk of technology, the Sun Sentinel and other media outlets were able to view the entire report including the blacked out portions. It shows in great detail how the district failed the Parkland shooter on every level for YEARS.

He was kicked out of daycare at three years old for aggressive biting and exhibiting ‘animal fantasies’ that led to a family counselor being assigned to the home

He was removed from first grade classroom multiple times throughout the year due to outbursts and physical aggression

He had a harness for the bus rides to kindergarten and in eighth grade he was placed on ‘escort only’ status which meant a security professional had to be BY HIS SIDE from moment he stepped foot on school grounds until moment he left

Starting in 2012, the school recorded at least 19 significant instances of violent aggressive behavior

He was transferred to Cross Creek, a school for kids with severe behavioral and emotional disorders, at some point in 8th grade. It was a better environment and all accounts showed progress

Did that mean that the shooter was fixed? Nope. He still showed multiple instances of problems, lacked impulse control, and reports explicitly stated that he would need constant monitoring at school AND in the neighborhood.

So what does the district recommend? ROTC. And in spite of the reports showing that he would need to be monitored, some idiot at the administrative level at the district decided the behavior intervention plan was no longer needed!

Within 3 weeks of him being placed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High as a sophomore, he posted on Instagram that he planned to shoot up a school. What did the Broward SO do? Nothing. What did the school do? NOTHING.

He was cutting himself in 2016 and that should’ve warranted a Baker Act commitment. Did that happen. NOPE. Then there is this: 

— School officials misstated Cruz’s options when he was faced with being removed from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School his junior year, leading him to refuse special education services.

— When Cruz asked to return to the therapeutic environment of Cross Creek School for special education students, the district “did not follow through,” the report reveals.

He ASKED to return to Cross Creek. He WANTED to graduate. What did the school do? NOTHING.

This report shows how the school district failed a severely at risk student. How many other at risk students have been failed by this school? How many other at risk students are a danger to themselves, to the schools, and their neighborhoods?

With this news, one would think that Parkland activist kiddies David Hogg, Emma Gonzales, and Cameron Kasky would be calling for people such as Superintendent Robert Runcie and other administrators to be fired right? You would think those three would be calling for a complete review and overhaul of the at risk and behavioral intervention programs the district runs. Right?

WRONG! You see…It’s the NRA STUPID!

That’s right. They have their narrative and will run it all the way down hill despite all evidence to the contrary.

So instead of addressing the genuine problems, what have they been doing the last few days?

Fawning all over the foul mouthed ‘activist’ who shut down the Statue of Liberty on the 4th of July.

Did Cameron, Emma, Fred Guttenberg, and other anti-NRA activists mention/discuss or react to this report? NO. As noted above, they are stuck on their NRA is EVIL!! narrative!

One parent did react.

The school district’s failure to act is atrocious and should not be swept under the rug. The district completely botched their handling of the Parkland shooter’s issues. How many other at-risk students in that district have experienced the same?

Memo to the Parkland kiddies, facts are facts. The NRA had nothing to do with what happened. Nothing at all. Place the blame squarely where it belongs, Broward County School District.

    Well said Nina!! Of course, we can’t forget the Coward county Sheriffs Office either, they bear a good share of the blame as well!

    When you replace a punishment system with a therapeutic one, this is what happens.
    The way you deter criminals is not by trying to help them become better people, but by making them suffer for their crimes (not I don’t say “mistakes”). At least that’s what the state should be doing.
    Leave rehabilitation to the non-profits and do-gooders. The state needs to punish the criminal.

    And, yes, this goes way beyond prison and crime, down to punishing children for their sins, as well. (Note again, not “mistakes”.) When you can’t take a mean little s*** over your knee and give him what-for, then he’s not going to break out of that behavior.

    The truth is irrelevant to Davey Hogg and his fans. It’s all about furthering the agenda like the good little brownshirts they’re learning to be. This is what happens when you don’t spank your children.

    Over many years I worked as a behaviour consultant with a number of dangerous children/adolescents like the lad described. One can change their behaviour in a highly structured, secure, i.e. locked, 24 hour program running for several years, especially starting when they are very young. Such programs require highly trained and physically able staff and are very expensive to run. However transitioning such disturbed people from such tightly structured programs to the open community is another matter. Very often they return to old patterns of disturbed and dangerous behaving. In the past such people tended to be institutionalised either in gaol or in mental institutions. Nowadays long-term institutionalisation is uncommon, in part because such places used to be terrible and abuse was common. However there are some people who simply cannot function safely in open society and cannot be ”cured”, no matter what the social welfare people wish: love and tender sentiments will not find a way. Medication may take the ”edge” off their behaviour – if they take it – but medication does not cause behavioural change per se.

      Excellently put.

        Jim, thank you for your comments. It is extremely baffling that despite all reports saying that he’d need constant monitoring, they pushed him back into the mainstream school w/o any guidance or assistance of any kind.

        IMO those who knew better failed him on multiple levels and set this tragedy in motion.

          Hi Nina,

          As a consultant behaviour specialist I have been responsible for recommending withdrawing certain children and adolescents from their mainstream or special schools simply because such places, even special schools, are not the place to implement intensive and prolonged interventions for some children even with special staff support in close proximity. There are simply too many variables which cannot be controlled in large social settings like schools. Once such students start to target other children and then staff the situation becomes political and political people have little interest in clinical programs. They tend to want problems to ”go away”.

          As for the use of punishment suggested by GWB it is usually the case with disturbed children and adolescents that they have been subject to numerous forms of and excessive punishment before they are referred to specialists to the point that they regard being punished as positively reinforcing for their anti-social behaviour – like a badge of honour or proof of how tough they are. Certainly, forms of punishment are used in intensive programs but must be balanced by rewards for correct or desirable behaviour when it occurs and that leads to another issue: disturbed children/adolescents frequently reject socially normal praise and do not trust the people offering it. Simply put one cannot teach correct behaviour by punishing incorrect behaviour. The two processes are separate.

    In a nutshell, children are dead because “the system” didn’t want to hurt the shooter’s feelings. Wonderful.
