An Armed Cop Was on Campus When The Florida Shooting Began—Never Encountered Suspect

policepolice

Parkland, FL — Another tragic mass shooting has taken place on American soil in which a deranged coward opened fire on innocent adults and children alike, taking many of their lives in the process. As the details unfold about the history of the shooter and the foreknowledge of his threats to both law enforcement and the school, it appears that the American police state is an utter failure at preventing the tragedies it was ostensibly built to stop.

Everything that was supposed to prevent this tragedy from happening was in place and unfolded as it was designed to do. Nikolas Cruz was reported to the FBI by citizens for publicly declaring that he wanted to become a “Professional School Shooter.” However, the FBI apparently chose not to act on that information.

What’s more, according to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, to ‘protect’ the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, an armed officer was on campus as the shooting began. However, according to Israel, the officer never encountered the suspect. Exactly how a police officer, who was already on the scene and whose job was to protect the students, was unable to even encounter the shooter remains a mystery.

All the police state measures of see something say something happened ‘correctly’, armed police on school campuses happened ‘correctly’, and even the shooter himself publicly claimed that he was going to carry out this atrocity months before doing it—yet it still happened.

During a press conference on Thursday, Sheriff Israel, at least three times, claimed police need “more power” to prevent such tragedies. He urged neighbors to spy on each other and report each other to the police if they see anything out of the ordinary.

One of the reason police need more power, according to Israel, is to go after those who make such ominous posts on social media. But they already have this power.

As TFTP has reported on numerous occasions, people have been arrested and thrown in jail for saying things far less threatening than shooting up a school.

In Flint, Michigan, Activist Christopher G. Wahmhoff, 37, was charged in 2016—not for saying he was going to shoot up a school or kill cops—but for a Facebook post referencing a protest against the Flint water crisis.

Before that, 26-year-old Kristin Holmes was arrested and charged with a crime for posting of a photo of herself with a handgun.

Holmes was charged with harassment by computer after a case of mistaken identity escalated into a Facebook comment feud.  A woman had reportedly mistaken Holmes for someone else and made some comments Holmes found offensive, so the young woman posted a selfie of herself playfully pointing a weapon at the camera along with the caption, “I’ll post a few actual pics of me so you know the difference when you come find me.”

Seventeen-year-old Osiris Aristy was arrested in 2015 after posting a Facebook status using the police officer emoji and the gun emoji. There was no written threat included in the post we found. The arrest warrant was obtained after “routine Facebook monitoring” found that Aristy had posted selfies with guns, selfies with marijuana joints and emojis “threatening to kill cops.”

Priscilla Villarreal simply reported a story on Facebook before the police did, so, she was arrested and charged with two felony counts of “misuse of official information,” stemming from her reporting on a Border Patrol agent’s suicide last April.

No direct threats were made to anyone and the people in the above scenarios were still arrested and charged. On the contrary, seven months ago, Cruz wrote, “I am going to kill law enforcement one day they go after the good people,” in the comments section of a video clip from the NatGeo show “Alaska State Troopers: Armed and Dangerous” that was posted on YouTube.

Then six months ago, he commented on a YouTube video titled, “Antifa Gun Club,” writing, “Im going watch them sheep fall f*ck antifa i wish to kill as many as i can.”

He also said he’s going to be a “Professional School Shooter.” 

Cruz also posted photos of dead animals and bragged about killing them on his instagram. By all measures, this kid threw up every single red flag and set off every single warning there is—people reported this to law enforcement—and nothing.

No arrests. No questions. And, all of this was in spite of the Florida law called the Baker Act which allows for involuntary examination which can be initiated by judges, law enforcement officials, physicians, or mental health professionals.

Police in Florida already had more than enough power and help from citizens to stop this tragedy, but they didn’t use it. How on earth would giving them more power solve this problem?

So, what’s the answer? Should we just hand over more power to the police who demand it? Should we put more cops in schools? Should we ban guns?

The answer to the problem of mass shootings lies not in the reactionary nature of the above questions. As we’ve seen over the years, building a police state through a problem, reaction, solution methodology does little to prevent future tragedies as they go after the symptoms instead of the cause.

In America, instead of attempting to understand the psychological triggers of mass shooters—and the potential pharmaceutical chemical imbalance that caused them to snap—tragedies are exploited for political gain, used to passed legislation, and pushed to stoke political divide.

The reality is that no amount of police state will ever prevent future tragedies and until we focus on the cause—instead of the symptoms—the problem will only persist.

New Show Bashes Table for Trump Supporters as ‘Lame Spot’ on Campus

In the January 3 premiere of the new spinoff series Grown-ish on Freeform, freshman Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi of ABC’s Black-ish) thinks she has the fictional California University all figured out after only three days on campus. Of course, just about everything she’s figured out is pretty much worthless and has some kind of political slant to it – all liberal.

Two and a half minutes into this first episode, “Late Registration,” Zoey walks us through the things that she has decided are important. It’s telling that the show decided to start the Black-ish spinoff on a new network, trying to attract new viewers, by staking their political ground. They thought it was so important their ideology was clear that they put it right at the beginning of the first episode, before any actual plot. Did they not think the story could stand on it’s own, that they had to resort to playing on the biases of the viewers?

Speaking of liberal bias, here is “everything [Zoey] needed to know to completely master” California University.

 

 

Zoey: I knew it all. I knew that Ronald J. Winthrop was our school founder, and that he dabbled in slavery. I knew that the Cal U basketball team of 1958 would get bodied by the Cal U basketball team today. I knew that this was the women’s bathroom and also the men’s bathroom. I knew this was the campus hot spot… This was the campus lame spot... And this was the campus dead spot. 
Man: Hold on, Mom! Did you say Dad was gay or game?

It’s weird that the fictional school founder would have been a slave owner. California became a state in 1850 (entering the union as a free state, wherein slavery wasn’t legal) and the oldest college in the state was founded in 1851. So, it’s theoretically possible “Winthrop” owned slaves in another state, then moved to California and founded a college quickly before the end of slavery across the United States, but it seems rather unlikely. It still didn’t stop Grownish from showing an image of a white man with a jaunty Confederate flag. 

Now, for sports. We see an all-white basketball team and are assured that they would be “bodied” by the basketball team today, which is represented by a black player. 

Next, we have gender neutral bathrooms. You may have noticed that the door featured the traditional image of a man in pants signifying a men’s room, a woman in a dress signifying a women’s room, and one that has one leg in pants and the other in a dress. I assume that’s the transgender bathroom symbol, although it’s not the legally approved symbol for the “everyone is welcome” bathrooms. California law requires that people be allowed to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, not every gender, but sure. The more, the merrier.

Where to hang out on campus? Well, the options, according to Zoey, are the “campus hot spot,” which is full of cool-looking people (who happen to be black) dancing and the “lame spot,” which is illustrated by a bunch of white Trump supporters with a “Build the Wall” sign. Even the depiction of the “dead spot” in which there is no cell reception is somebody trying to discern whether or not a caller is trying to tell him that his dad is gay.

Is anything normal happening on this campus anywhere, or does Zoey just not find that important?

Year in Review: 17 campus hate crimes that turned out to be hoaxes in 2017

Our 2017 year-end fundraising campaign runs through Dec. 31, so please consider a tax-deductible donation of any amount to help us continue to publish the best campus news in the nation. Thanks for your support!

Over the last year, it seems as if more campus hate crimes turned out to be hoaxes than legitimate acts of hate. Schools tended to be fertile ground for overzealous students looking to prove there is hate where none exists. These 17 examples show 2017 continued to be a year in which hate-crime hoaxes are an epidemic with no end in sight.

Some anecdotes are fallout from post-election antics spawned in late November 2016 in the wake of the Donald Trump presidency. The rest originated in apparent desperate attempts to push a progressive narrative.

Student cries KKK — except it was a sheet over lab equipment
Jan. 2017

A Bowling Green State University student falsely identified a cover for a piece of equipment as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. After seeing a white, pointy figure in a classroom window, the student took to Twitter to post the image and dramatically stated there was an “ACTIVE KKK group” at BGSU. After the university looked into this claim, they discovered what the student tweeted was a cover on a piece of lab equipment. Whoops.

Black student sent threatening ‘KKK’ messages 
Jan. 2017

A 14 year-old African-American student was disciplined for sending a threatening tweet to her high school under the Twitter handle “@KoolkidsKlankkk.” The message read “We’re planning to attack tomorrow.” But a police investigation found the Twitter account was run by progressive student activists.

Another anti-Muslim hate crime claim bites the dust 
Jan. 2017

A day after the election of President Trump, a female San Diego University student claimed she was approached by two men in a parking garage stairwell who invoked the name of the newly elected president “before attacking [her] and stealing her car.” The student claimed that these men said things like “Now that Trump is president get ready to start fleeing.” Turns out, she had forgotten where she parked. After police in January disproved her claim, the student “decided not to pursue charges.”

Prosecutors won’t file charges against Muslim student’s hate-crime hoax 
Feb. 2017

The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office in February decided not file charges against a University of Michigan student accused by the Ann Arbor Police Department of a hate-crime hoax. In November, a female University of Michigan student told police days after the election that a white man demanded she remove her hijab or he would set her on fire. Without any proof, the U of M Division of Public Safety and Security issued an alert, calling the incident an act of “hate and intimidation.” But authorities determined it never happened.

Hate crime hoax alert: Capital University student confesses  
Feb. 2017

A Capital University student confessed to “submitting multiple false reports to campus police” after campus police asked him if he had written a hate-filled note taped to his own door. He confessed that he had been seeking “notice” for at least two years. In 2015, he pulled a similar stunt, and the school responded with an inclusivity march. The student added that he wished “that those who feel his actions have delegitimized the reporting of hate crimes will forgive him.”

Hoax alert: ‘Non-Caucasian’ student behind racist graffiti
March 2017

A “non-caucasian” Minnesota high school student was disciplined after it was determined he was responsible for racist and anti-semitic graffiti found in a school bathroom. The scribblings included a picture of a lynching, the phrase “Hail the Ku Klux Klan,” the “N” word, and a swastika. The school district released a statement that “Lakeville South High School administration received permission from the parent to share that the student is non-Caucasian and has significant special education needs.” Nevertheless, the district viewed it as a “teachable moment” and launched cultural liaison opportunities.

Student admits to hoax she said was linked to post-election ‘surge in hate crimes’
March 2017

A 21 year-old student at the University of Michigan claimed in mid-November 2016 that a man scratched her face due to her wearing a “solidarity [safety] pin.” In March of this year, the student pled guilty to one count of “false report of a misdemeanor.” She told the judge she was embarrassed by a visible scratch she herself had made with the pin. But her story had already been reported as “part of the surge in hate crimes following the election of Donald Trump.”

‘Report Illegal Aliens; America is a White Nation’ posters hung — by liberal students
March 2017

A group of progressive students at Gustavus Adolphus College apologized for posters they put up across campus that stated: “A notice to all white Americans. It is your civil duty to report any and all illegal aliens to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. They are criminals. America is a white nation.” The posters’ were allegedly hung to start a dialogue on discrimination, hate, and bias, and A-frames next to the posters advised students on what they could do if they witnessed discrimination. Unaware that this war some sort of social justice lesson, students reacted with shock and anger at the posters, ripping many of them down. The progressive students group later apologized and said they wanted “to help put an end to bias-related incidents that happen on our campus, social media, and in our communities by forcing individuals to have dialogues about forms of hate and bias” and that they hope that “members of the campus community will reflect on today’s events and join us in ensuring that no one student or group of students are ever a victim of this form of discrimination.”

Black guy hangs ‘No Black People Allowed’ sign at USC
April 2017

The University of Southern California’s Department of Public Safety confirmed that the person who had adhered a sign reading “No Black People Allowed” that featured a makeshift confederate flag and “#MAGA” on a gate of a campus residence was African American. The culprit was not affiliated with the university and did not face charges. Fortunately, not many jumped on this now-revealed hoax as “more evidence” of the alleged hate-filled Donald Trump era. But one exception was the “Blacktivist” Facebook page which has more than 300,000 followers. The group urged their fellow African Americans to “look around” and ponder if this is “the country our ancestors died for? Is this the country that we want our children to grow up in?”

Beware the hoax: Noose sighted at University of Maryland frat

A noose was allegedly discovered hanging in the kitchen of a University of Maryland fraternity in early May. In an email to The College Fix, the Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life Director Matt Supple stated that “We all bear responsibility to confront bias/hate when we see it. Sadly, this is one more example of hatred and prejudice that continue to poison our society. We must stand together in defiance of this act. We need to ensure people who would perpetrate this type of hate know they do not belong and are not welcome in our chapters, in our community, at the University of Maryland, or in our society.” Except photos of the noose on either social media or news sites never arose.

CONFIRMED: Racist note that prompted St. Olaf College shut down is hate-crime hoax
May 2017

A note that used the n-word and threatened a black female student at St. Olaf College — sparking an intense protest that led to classes being shut down for a day as student demonstrators accused the school of institutional racism — “was not a genuine threat,” according to the school’s president. In a campus wide email, the president explained that the reasons why he said this was not a genuine threat is because the university learned from the author’s confession that the note was fabricated. “It was apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate,” he added.

Suspect in social media threats to minority HS students is … black
September 2017

Various threats made online against minority students at a Pennsylvania high school were not hate crimes, police determined. The suspect turned out to be a black student. The 14-year-old student from West Chester East High School was charged in September with harassment, cyber bullying, and terroristic threats for posts he made on the “East Shade Room” Instagram page.

Man charged in U. Maryland swastika vandalism is black former UMD employee
October 2017

The suspect charged in connection with a spray-painted swastika on campus in October on the University of Maryland’s campus is African American and a former employee of UMD, according to authorities.

University’s ‘colored’ water fountain scandal was student hoax
October 2017 

A “colored” sign placed over a water fountain at the University of North Carolina Charlotte—a callback to the days of racial segregation in which public facilities were separated by “whites” and “colored” designations—was placed there by “a male student” who believed he was engaging in “humor.” The sign caused “a strong response from staff and students alike,” leading the student in question to approach school officials and reveal that he had placed the sign as part of “a poor attempt at humor,” according to the student himself. “I am deeply sorry for all that came out of this,” the student is alleged to have said.

Hate-crime hoaxer near Kansas State won’t be charged
November 2017

A Kansas man won’t face charges for filing a false police report about the n-word graffiti and threat he painted on his own car near Kansas State University, The Kansas City Star reports. “Go Home Ni**er Boy” was written with yellow paint across the rear windshield of the car. Other racially offensive language — “White’s Only,” “Die,” and “Date your own kind” — was also painted on the windshield and side doors of the car. But police said that because the vandal, who is black, admitted he was behind the graffiti and was “genuinely remorseful” it would “not be in the best interests” of the community to charge him.

Black Air Force Academy cadet admits to racial slur vandalism
November 2017

Back in September, some black Air Force Academy cadets discovered racial slurs written on their dorm doors, including “Go home ni**er.” The school began an investigation and Superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria lectured cadets about the messages’ “horrible language,” telling them “if you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then get out.” According to The Washington Post, Silveria’s speech “drew national attention for its eloquence” and was viewed more than 1 million times on YouTube. Alas, in November it was announced that the black cadets were victims of one of their own. A black student wrote the racist messages.

ANTIFA MANUAL FOUND On Evergreen College Campus: Shut Down Their Rallies ~ Force The Media To Show Our Side As The Righteous One

Ed Noor: Many of these Antifa rioters are first and second daycare generation children  ~ daycare being a societal mistake created by my older generation when we were suckered by feminism into sending our children to state-funded and -regulated (((Communist))) institutions while we slaved to pay for the privilege of being working women ~ as our children were mollycoddled by “safe spaces” from very young, always a goal of communism and cultural Marxism.  The problem is, as we have seen with Antifa violence, often the perpetrators are the very teachers and professors, our own children, those who never outgrew their fascination with communism and pass on the poison to our grandchildren.

This copy of the Antifa Manual, that is used by the George Soros funded, violent, anti-American, anti free-speech radical group, was allegedly found on the Evergreen College campus. The content of this manual is disturbing and should be read by every American, so we understand what we are up against. It helps to explain why these groups call our President and his supporters “Hitler” or “racists” or “homophobes.” It’s not that Trump or his supporters are any of these things, it’s just part of a campaign to humiliate and shut down any opposition to radicals whose ultimate goal is a one world order and the destruction of capitalism in America.

‘We were both drunk’: How a top civil rights official describes most Title IX campus rape accusations

A top civil rights official in the U.S. Department of Education characterized “90 percent” of campus sexual assault accusations that rise to the level of a federal Title IX investigation as amounting to “We were both drunk” in an interview with the New York Times.

Candice L. Jackson, the acting head of the DOE’s Office of Civil Rights, told the Times that she believes Title IX investigative process needs to be reexamined.

“The accusations — 90 percent of them — fall into the category of ‘We were both drunk,’ ‘We broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided that our last sleeping together was not quite right,’” Jackson said.

Appointed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in April, Jackson currently runs the part of the agency that handles investigations into schools for discrimination based on race, disability and gender. She will remain the acting head until the Senate confirms a permanent assistant secretary.

Jackson, who described herself as a survivor of sexual assault, said that campus sexual assault investigations are not “fairly balanced between the accusing victim and the accused student.” Students are labeled as rapists even “when the facts just don’t back that up,” she said.

Accused students’ rights are often ignored in Title IX cases, Jackson said. She noted that hundreds of cases are still pending because investigators are told to continue probing until they can find some sort of violation, a claim that former civil rights head Catherine Lhamon called “patently, demonstrably untrue.”

While it’s difficult to measure the prevalence of false accusations, the National Center for the Prosecution of Violence Against Women found that several “rigorous” studies estimate that between 2 to 10 percent of sexual assault reports turn out to be false.

Jackson issued a statement late Wednesday apologizing for her remarks, characterizing them as “flippant.”

“As a survivor of rape myself, I would never seek to diminish anyone’s experience,” Jackson wrote. “My words in the New York Times poorly characterized the conversations I’ve had with countless groups of advocates … All sexual harassment and sexual assault must be taken seriously — which has always been my position and will always be the position of this Department.”

At the civil rights office, Jackson could play a key role in helping DeVos assess Obama-era policies promoting a more aggressive approach to campus sexual assault investigations. While Democrats lauded the previous administration’s emphasis on campus sexual assault investigations, Republicans have said the policies demonstrated federal overreach.

Jackson was a staunch defender of the women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment, but previously called those who have accused President Trump of sexual harassment as “fake victims,” according to BuzzFeed News.

DeVos is scheduled to meet Thursday with campus sexual assault survivors, those accused of sexual assault and higher education administrators to discuss Title IX and how institutions handle sexual assault.

Update (7/13/17 at 8:10 a.m.): This story has been updated to include Jackson’s apology.
