The Republican Governor in Florida, Rick Scott is asking for the FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.
After a confession from the FBI admitting it received a tip about the suspect in the Parkland shooting in January and failed to follow through with it, he has had growing concerns. In a statement on Friday, the FBI admitted it received a call on January 5th about details on Nikolas Cruz. The 19-year old boy is responsible for the deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“Protocols were not followed,” according to the FBI when a tip like this is phoned into the FBI’s public access line. However, it was never forwarded to the FBI’s Miami field office and did not receive any further investigation. “The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,” Scott mentioned. “The FBI has admitted that they were contacted last month by a person who called to inform them of Cruz’s ‘desire to kill people,’ and ‘the potential of him conducting a school shooting.’
While the left points the finger at guns, guns, guns, the real blame is being put on the FBI inability to investigate two attempts to alert them to the Florida school shooter, Yes, they dropped the ball twice on this!
The first were alerted to Nikolas Cruz last January from a YouTube user who reported him. They got a second tip in September from someone concerned with Cruz and his use of a gun.
Shouldn’t there be better coordination between the FBI and local police departments?
Florida Governor Rick Scott just called for the resignation of the FBI Director. Is the FBI too busy politicizing a presidential election to see about important tips like this? Notice how they came out this afternoon with indictments on 13 Russian nationals in regards to supposed interference in the 2016 election. Distraction?
RICHT BACK ATCHA FBI!
