Parkland Shooting: Top 10 Reasons For Deeper Interrogation

By James F. Tracy

Over the past several years certain certain US mass shootings receive round-the-clock coverage yet often possess curious features which are ignored and merely accepted “as reported” by less-than-trustworthy corporate media. Bizarre circumstance and the sometimes inexplicable actions of officials, victims, eyewitnesses and would-be culprits give rise to concern that government agencies and news media act in certain ways to embellish some incidents while short-circuiting the dissemination of vital information.

In the flood of information following such heavily-covered tragedies there are sometimes enough anomalies in routine reporting to develop serious cause for concern and  intensified scrutiny. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting is one such event. Below is a list and brief discussion of what this author believes to be the most glaring inconsistencies and overall problems evident in information and coverage of the Parkland incident that necessitate further consideration of the overall event.

1. Missing Surveillance Video. Ensconced in a locale boasting a $600,000 media property value. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is among the most modern and well-funded in Florida. Like other schools throughout the state, the campus was equipped with a comprehensive video monitoring system of buildings’ interior passages and exterior walkways. The Broward County School District is withholding video taken during the February 14 ,2018 mass shooting at the school that could reveal exactly how the event transpired. It appears that some video may have been obtained by the Miami Herald, which posted it with the headline, “Video Shows Blood-Smeared Floor, Body Inside Douglas Classroom.” The article has since been removed from the newspaper’s website.

2. Scripted Lines? A Stoneman Douglas high school junior and ROTC member, Colton Haab, who sought to participate in a CNN TownHall broadcast on February 21, claimed the cable network provided him with a list of “scripted questions.” “I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinions on my questions,” Haab explained to local ABC affiliate, WPLG-TV. “CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted.” Haab said he was asked to prepare a speech and to ask about school safety and the prospect of veterans being employed as armed security guards in schools. The high schooler’s ideas and queries were prohibited by CNN. After being told he had to ask a scripted question, Haab decided not to attend the event. “I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have,” Haab said.

Shortly thereafter Haab stated on FoxNews that based on his experience he believed all of the questions asked by Stoneman Douglas students and community members at the CNN TownHall were scripted.

3. Manufactured Dissent? Stoneman Douglas High students impacted by the event were rapidly mobilized by Democratic political leaders to advocate for the Party’s foremost rallying cries–strengthened gun control laws. News media including CNN and state and federal Democratic Party operatives, including Florida Representative and former Democratic Party National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, advised key Stoneman students in organizing the #NeverAgain movement and arranging protests, including a lobbying trip to Tallahassee to meet with Florida legislators. Parkland, however, is represented by Democratic Representative Ted Deutch, another staunch gun control advocate.

According to the New Yorker, Wasserman Schultz and her aides touched base with Stoneman junior and NeverAgain leader-in-training Jaclyn Corin on February 15–one day after the shooting. “Conversations with state representatives followed, and preliminary arrangements were made to bus a hundred Douglas students and fifteen chaperones to Tallahassee to address the state legislature. Yesterday, I asked Corin if she had been politically active before the shooting. ‘Not even a little bit,’ she said.”

Corin appears especially astute having absolutely no previous experience in issue-oriented politics. “The action has been so quick,” the 17-year-old told the Naples Daily News. “And that’s necessary because this is a fresh and open wound and we can’t let it close up. We need to do something about it before it just disappears like it always has.”

4. Experts Speak Out. Those with military and school administrative experience have begun to step forward and question various troubling elements of the Stoneman Douglas shooting. For example, John Bouchell, a militarily trained weapons expert, security expert and school administrator based in Florida tweeted at length about how Parkland differed greatly from his own experiences defending his school during an active shooter event.

5. Reports of Multiple Shooters. In numerous interviews Stoneman Douglas students asserted there was more than one shooter in Building 12 as the event proceeded. Parkland student Jalen Martin claims the United States Secret Service visited the high school’s campus weeks before the incident, altering the active shooter response protocol. Is this why Douglas school resource officer and Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson remained outside the classroom building as the carnage ensued? Another student claimed she saw and spoke to alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz in Building 12 during the event. A Stoneman Douglas teacher told MSNBC faculty were informed there would be an active shooter drill sometime during the spring semester, but were left in the dark as to the actual date or time of the exercise.

6. Crime Scene Demolition. Less than two days after the tragic shooting Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie proposed demolishing Building 12—the crime scene itself. The Florida State Legislature almost immediately agreed to help fund the tear down. One must ask why, just hours after the brutal deaths of 17 youths, plans for evidence destruction and a new memorial are even being pondered. “Just looking at that building and talking about it now, I have goosebumps out to my head [sic],” Runcie said. “I don’t know how teachers, students could get back in that building. I don’t even know how we’re going to open the whole campus, period.” Stoneman Douglas will join a long line of mass casualty event scenes, including Columbine, Aurora, and Sandy Hook, that have been destroyed.

7. Abandoned Law Enforcement Protocols. On the afternoon of February 14 Stoneman Douglas school resource officer and Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson heard gunshots in Building 12 and rushed there but waited outside for four minutes as the massacre ensued. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who could not explain Peterson’s behavior, acknowledged Peterson’s inaction was captured in campus surveillance video and suspended the deputy without pay. Israel thereafter told the press, “We’re not going to to disclose the video at this time and we may never disclose the video.”

Two additional deputies under Israel’s command Edward Eason and Guntis Treijs, were placed on administrative duties pending further investigation. Both deputies participated in 23 calls for service to Cruz’s home and may not have followed protocol.Two other Broward Sheriff’s deputies are under review for failing to further investigate repeated complaints concerning Cruz that may have prevented the shooting, WPLG reports. In 2014 Peterson was selected by Parkland as school resource officer of the year. He was in another campus building when he heard the initial shots.

“I’m completely disgusted,” said Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine, a former mayor of Parkland whose daughter attends Stoneman Douglas. “There is nobody in authority talking to each other and every organization that had a chance to stop this completely failed our children from top to bottom.”

8. Fight to Establish Official Narrative. There is a very well-defined struggle to establish and defend the official government/law enforcement narrative of the Stoneman Douglas mass shooting and prevent any questioning of this storyline. This campaign is being led in part by cable news giant and Time Warner subsidiary CNN. Alternative media have been banished from YouTube for sharing differing views and analyses of the Parkland shooting and earlier mass casualty events. A recent “Community Guidelines” policy change provides for the Google subsidiary to eliminate any videos it perceives as “targeting the victims of tragedies,” thus de facto censoring many important critical analyses of such events.

On February 23 CNN directly petitioned YouTube to shutdown a channel run by libertarian commentator Alex Jones, claiming that its alternative reportage and commentary on the Parkland shooting runs afoul of YouTube’s policies. “On Wednesday, YouTube removed a video from InfoWars’ page for violating its policies on harassment and bullying,” CNN argued in a piece targeting “conspiracy theories.” “The video was titled, ‘David Hogg Can’t Remember His Lines In TV Interview.'” CNN reporters then “identified three similar YouTube videos from InfoWars and asked if they also violated YouTube’s policies. The YouTube spokesperson said the videos CNN sent were flagged to the policy team for review.” Under YouTube’s policy, if a user receives three strikes in a three month period their account is terminated. Such advocacy toward eliminating a media competitor and defending an official government narrative of such a controversial and still-unfolding event is especially concerning.

In another instance Isaac Green, a thoughtful and popular commentator running the Anti-School YouTube channel who proffered an array of unconventional perspectives on Stoneman Douglas and political controversies, had all of his videos removed by YouTube. Shortly thereafter Google locked Green out of his account entirely.

9. FBI Involvement. Ongoing internal investigations on law enforcement responses to the threats Cruz posed already reveal how the FBI alongside local law enforcement repeatedly failed to follow up on reports of the supposed assailant’s unusual behavior, weapons ownership, and disturbing online media posts. The FBI’s failure in this regard was condemned by Florida Governor Rick Scott and the US Justice Department. The bureau admitted an individual close to Cruz phoned the FBI’s Public Access Line on January 5 to report information concerning Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, unpredictable behavior and ominous social media posts. The party also stated that Cruz could likely carry out a mass shooting. The information was never forwarded to the FBI’s Miami office and investigated further.

Or was it? According to investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson, throughout the so-called “War on Terror” the FBI has been directly involved in cultivating terrorists through its network of informants, and often encouraging their activities. “Our nation’s top law enforcement agency, traditionally focused on investigating crimes after they occur,” writes Aaronson, “now operates more as an intelligence organization that tries to preempt crimes before they occur. But how many of these would-be terrorists would have acted were it not for an FBI agent provocateur helping them?” Was Cruz manipulated to take up arms against his Stoneman Douglas peers? Or, was he somehow maneuvered to the scene, as the observations of one eyewitness suggests, while other more capable gunmen carried out the slaughter?

10. Antipsychotic Drugs. According to the Florida Department of Children and Families, Nikolas Cruz was receiving mental health services from Henderson Behavioral Health and accordingly “taking medication” for alleged psychiatric ailments. In 2016 Cruz’s adoptive mother Lynda Cruz stated that her son suffered from depression, ADHD, and autism, suggesting how Cruz was regularly consuming a cocktail of potent drugs that may have impacted his behavior and judgement prior to the shooting. The psychoactive drugs used to treat depression and ADHD have profoundly complex and potentially debilitating side effects when taken separately that are only compounded if administered in unison. These include agitation, hyperactivity, psychosis, and are further linked to suicidal and homicidal actions. Given the mass media’s heavy dependence on drug company advertising, the role that psychiatric drugs may play in mass shootings is almost always downplayed in reportage on such events. “The drugs aren’t the only causative factor,” journalist and author Jon Rappoport observes, “but they produce what I call the Johnny Appleseed effect throughout society. Sprinkle enough of the drugs among enough people and you get otherwise unexplainable violence popping up—in schools, in workplaces. The psychiatric plague eats out the country from the inside.”

  1. They really want to ban these rifles. In Las Vegas an even more questionable massacre occurred (the massacre was real, the official report questionable) when hundreds at a country concert were killed. Several gunmen besides the patsy were reported by the fleeing concert goers, but, again, nothing of this got into the mass media. Apparently US power is going to continue these staged homicidal operations until they can ban the guns. Then Americans can be rounded up without being able to threaten to shoot back.

    • I take issue with your claim the Las Vegas killings happened-there is NO evidence any kind of a major massacre happened, I am a medical professional myself and I scoured the footage available, also Jim Fetzer reported at the time of the event he called hospitals in the area and the supervisor told him “IT WAS A DRILL, NO ONE WAS KILLED” etc., etc., etc.

    • The cowards are people like you who cowardly hide behind the white sheet of anonymity. You also provide no, zero, justification for your meaningless opinion of professor James Tracy, Ph.D., which is evidently based on ignorant media lies and propaganda. While your are entitled to believe anything you want, professor Tracy has respect for the 1st Amendment and published your ignorant unsupported opinion despite it placing him in a bad light. The real cowards are the gutless liars at the intellectual cesspool FAU from its over paid liar president on down to the roughly 1000 worthless cowards on the faculty who won’t and did not and failed to stand up for a colleague who was shafted by media lies not unlike Nazi, Germany in WWII. Evidently all the worthless ignorant administrators at FAU learned from the lessons of Nazi, Germany is how to copy them. Shame on you. You are just another glaring example of why America has lost its way and will continue straight down the cesspool it so rightly deserves due to brainwashing of the population by a totally corrupt media. You and the lying administrators of FAU are a perfect example of the Dictum of America’s greatest writer Mark Twain: “Man Evolved DOWN from the higher animals.” quoted from “Letters from the Earth”, by Mark Twain, 1938. I would bet you do not even know the meaning of the “Golden Rule”.

The writing teacher says she faced the shooter and got a great view of him. “At first glance, Lippel said she thought the shooter could be a police officer because of the way he was dressed — in “full metal garb” complete with helmet, face mask and bulletproof armor.” Did he also carry that stuff along with him in the uber, and then do a quick change in the school bathroom? That must have been quite a suitcase, along with his guns and ammo.

  8. It’s hard to believe CNN/Google/Youtube and the gang aren’t aware of the massive Streisand effect of censoring high profile channels and inviting guests on to deny the “crisis actor” charge. And let’s not forget that Don Lemon pointed out on air that CNN interviewed their own cameraman and that they were busted (including in mainstream media) for pretending two reporters in the same parking lot were talking via a satellite link. Seems to me that MSM and the interests it serves are trying to normalise fakery because a single narrative can no longer be maintained.

David Hogg, while hiding from the shooter with his classmates, and without knowing where his sister was, and if she were safe, and while his friends may have been in the corridor, riddled with bullets, laying dead or dying, and without knowing who the shooter was, how many shooters there were, or if the shooter was going to burst into his room and spray the room with bullets, at that particular time, David Hogg took out his video camera and interviewed his fellow classmates on their position on gun control. If people do not think that is peculiar, I say they are peculiar.

  11. Read the FBI transcript of the tipster from January 2018. It is clear as day that the “tipster” was a member of the Deschamp family. She said that Cruz was “like a brother to her.” She said that she and other of her famly members tried to call Mr. Snead, who took Cruz into his house, and they left messages, but Mr. Snead never called them back. She also said that Cruz’ blood aunt had called Mr. Snead, and left a message, and Mr. Snead did not call back. I had wondered why Snead took Cruz in, without consulting his guardians who he had been lilving with before moving in with the Sneads, but it appears much worse than that. The Deschamp family was concerned aboutCruz well-being and so was the aunt and they called Mr. Snead, but he did not call back. Strike anyone as odd.

    The tipster told the FBI:

    , “….if you’re going to help somebody and you know there’s family involved, at least return the phone calls and talk to them about it. Or, you know, return the phone call and say mind your own business. Yeah, something.”

    The tipster also said that Cruz met the “young son” of Snead on “instagram”. Mr. Snead said that his son met Cruz in the JROTC, but Cruz had been expelled and was not at the school for a year, so how did he come by Cruz in that time. Clearly, someone is lying. Either Snead is lying, or the tipster is lying. However, Mr. Snead also told the media that he knew “nothing” about Cruz “instagram acccount”. This was where Cruz put all of those photos of himself and his arsenal of guns.

    Mr. Snead said he knew nothing about Cruz, and that he always behaved properly. However, Snead said he tried to get Cruz back into Stoneman Douglas, and therefore it was clear that he knew that Cruz had been expelled. Did he know why? Snead was a member of the school board. Perhaps he also knew that there was a drill that day. In addition, Snead is a highly decorated military veterans who held a job in military intelligence with a top secret clearance.

    The Sneads were caught in lies. Mr. Snead said that his wife was sleeping that morning and was awakened by the police. Mrs. Snead said that she spoke to Cruz that morning about going to school and that he told HER that it was Valentine’s Day and he does not go to school on Valentine’s Day. That is not what Mr. Snead said.

    The Sneads were interviewed in what appeared to be their living room. It was a beautifully appointed and very elegant living room, but I looked attheir home on google earth. It is a dump surrounded by very high fences.

    The Sneads are stinky-poo.

  12. Very telling was Hogg’s video made while in “lockdown” in a classroom. On this video he recited the time of day twice. The first time, he said it was 2:48 p.m. and while not knowing where his sister was, if she was harmed, if his fellow classmates were outside in the corridor riddled with bullets, laying dead or dying, who the shooter was, how many there were, or not knowing whether the shooter was going to burst into the door and spray them with bullets, chose that particular time to take out his video camera and interview his fellow classmates on their position on “gun control.” The second time of day he recited was 3:13 p.m. At this time, he told his listeners who the shooter was, i.e. Nikolas Cruz, and said that the information was “unofficial.” Yet, the police told us and gave us a timeline, never to be contradicted in any other report, that Nikolas Cruz was “identified and apprehended” at 3:41 p.m. How did Hogg know what no one else knew, not even the police?

  13. What do you think of this video testimony by Samantha Fuentes as she describes and shows off her injuries? https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2018/02/28/samantha-fuentes-intv-parkland-school-shooting-not-returning-injuries-sot-newday.cnn I think she ties with Tiara Parker of the Orlando shooting for the most fake injuries. I read an article from the surgeons who purportedly worked on the Parkland high school students, and they described exit wounds of the bullets as softball-sized, going on about how destructive the AR-15 is to bodily tissue. How is Samantha able to get away with a tiny little bandage like that, no swelling or discoloration? Anyone had surgery out there? I’ve had two of the tiniest surgeries, and the bruising and swelling remained for easily a month. Somehow though the clownish looking black eye she sustained just keeps going on.
