Yet another school massacre has been carried out by a disturbed 19 year old young man this time in Florida. Reports indicate he killed 17 people at the Marjoy Stoneman High School not far from Miami which included both HS students and adults. The shooter is Nikolas Cruz and he used an AR-15 to carry out his evil deed. And, of course, the Leftists wasted no time calling for gun control but the REAL PROBLEM is something much more than that!
Nikolas Cruz is a former student at the HS who was expelled last year and the more we learn about his history the more warning signs we find and we see a consistent pattern of MENTAL ILLNESS! And, once again, just about everyone turned the other way and ignored the warning signs! This is a very disturbed young man to say the least.
Friends and former classmates say he was obsessed with guns, knives, and hunting and school administrators sent out an email last year warning not to allow him on campus with a backpack. Ironically, no one who knew him was surprised by his actions yesterday and, in fact, several students said they expected him to do such a thing!
Cruz has no prior arrest record but while being taken into custody yesterday he demonstrated some extremely troubling behavior. Police reviewing his social media accounts described his posts as “disturbing and alarming.” While attending the HS Cruz was part of the Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps during his freshman year and he was described as being “into some weird stuff” such as shooting rats with a BB gun.
He and his brother were adopted when they were young boys and apparently the adoptive parents had problems with both boys in terms of behavior. One relative describes Cruz and his brother as having “emotional issues.” That relative also said Cruz was on MEDICATION for emotional problems! SOUND FAMILIAR?
After being expelled from the HS Cruz attended a school for “at risk youth.” He’d been suspended from Stoneman HS for fighting and he was also found with bullets in his backpack last year while on campus. He also had a history of threatening other students at the HS. Students say Cruz used to have “weird, random outbursts” and would start cussing at teachers. Others say Cruz had obviously mental problems! He was described as a “loner” and in middle school he kicked out a window in a classroom.
Once again we see the SAME PATTERN OF DISTURBING BEHAVIOR that we’ve seen in other shooting such as Sandyhook, Columbine, and the theater in Colorado! Young males who tend to be loners who are VERY ANGRY inside and who have MENTAL PROBLEMS and are on PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS! The MSM wastes no time pushing their POLITICAL AGENDA while IGNORING the REAL ISSUE! The REAL ISSUE is NOT the gun nor gun control but is MENTAL ILLNESS!! These young men are time bombs waiting to explode and strike out and that is exactly what they are doing. And although most of them displayed PLENTY of WARNING SIGNS those warning signs were either ignored or DOWNPLAYED. Fact is these young men are disturbed and should have been put into FORCED MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT at the very first red flag! But, instead, we ignore the ELEPHANT in the room and the media uses every opportunity to ply their agenda which is gun control. In doing so THEY and WE are NOT helping the MANY MORE youth out there with the SAME problems and who are also ticking time bombs!! Ignoring them and ignoring their warning signs is NOT helping them!!
These youth have fantasies of being Rambo or something akin to it. Their anger inside is so great that normal people cannot imagine such a level of anger and boiling rage. They kill because they want others to feel what they feel. More than anything these youth need HELP! Psychiatric and behavioral help! They all have a history of behavior problems and mental problems and MOST of them are on psychiatric medications which are supposed to solve everything. WRONG! These youth need much MORE than the medications. They need LONG TERM PSYCHIATRIC THERAPY in an INSTITUTIONAL setting!! In most cases their parents are at the ends of their rope in dealing with them and do not know where to turn. So they give up and do you blame them? I don’t! Unless you’ve been in a similar situation you CANNOT even begin to imagine living with one of these youth especially when he/she is your CHILD! It’s very hard to admit something is very wrong with our child. But this is what we must do when we see warning signs like we see in Cruz and the others. THEY NEED HELP!! And that is the REAL ISSUE here NOT gun control!!
For as long as we continue to ignore and downplay these youth we will only see more and more school shootings. That you can count on!! When do we as ADULTS start helping these youth and acknowledging the warning signs and behaviors displayed by these youth and do something about it that will HELP them and avoid more repeats like we saw yesterday in Florida? Enough of the LEFTIST POLITICAL CRAP already!
The REAL ISSUE is the mental deterioration of our youth!!!!
