    Just because it's been bouncing around is not enough reason to bounce it around some more. Maybe it's right and maybe it isn't. But we've had posters throw out wrong names in the past.

    BS unless they served someone obviously messed up. Many people can appear to have their senses at well above the DUI cutoff point.

    Broward County sheriffs just confirmed that the shooter was NOT a current student at the school

    The one I saw wasn't there any longer - prior student I think.

    Didn't see all his stuff before they yanked it but he was posing with knives and guns wearing an Army hat in some pictures and had something about Allah Akbar I think on his instagram but it seemed to be in a context like it didn't really mean anything to him. If that was the right social media I saw real quick.

    Well, clearly the only thing a school can do is hire 3-5 guards armed with assault riffles and body armor. Welcome to North El Salvador. :(

    We’ve done “nothing” about all previous school shootings? Or is this some indirect way of suggesting that we curb the civil rights of millions of Americans who didn’t shoot a bunch of innocent students today?

    Yeah when I checked facebook it was pulled already.....although there is another Nick Cruz in Coral Springs around the same age. Poor kid is going to get tortured.....but like I said, his account wasn't crazy. Nerdy though

    “There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus.”

    “Gard says he believes the school administration had sent out an email warning teachers that the student had made threats against other in the past and that he should not be allowed on the campus with a backpack. Another student interviewed on the scene by Channel 7 said the student had guns at home.

    Grew up in Coral Springs before Parkland was even a town (Went to Taravella and was in school when Stoneman Douglas opened up). The city is much different now than it was 40 years ago!

    And what can we do? Better mental health facilities and opportunities for those who need help. The signs were there that this kid wasn't stable. And what was done? A warning email, which is better than nothing, but still didn't prevent anything.

    He was expelled from school......why was he not hospitalized? Where are the parents? I couldn't imagine saying this but where was DCS? You would think that an expulsion on the basis of what he was displaying would've triggered some red flags and I don't know, maybe open a file or an investigation somewhere in any number of the bloated bureaucracies out there where this situation would fall under?

    Something?????

    A flag on the gun permit/purchase list?

    One student said the shooter pulled the fire alarm and shot people leaving.

    He was kicked off campus last year.

    He was obsessed with guns and had bomb making info on his computer

    Well if we are going to start this why don't we talk about the tasing and macing of two black girls at a Winter Park middle school yesterday and turn this into a race thread.
