(National Sentinel) Complicit: The Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shootings touched off a nationwide anti-gun, anti-NRA movement that continues to reverberate today.
The horrific shootings were used as a platform to launch the ‘career’ of student David Hogg, who was manipulated by a disgusting establishment media and Democratic Party into becoming just another Left-wing gun control Nazi.
Hogg-led boycotts of businesses and demonstrations, in conjunction with those launched by the usual gun-control groups and abetted by Democrats, have cost many people their livelihood and reputations, and they continue with their politically weaponized protests and character assassinations to this day.
But a bombshell new report reveals that if the administrators at his school — whom he has praised — had done their jobs, the shootings might never have happened.
As reported by the Sun-Sentinel:
In the year leading up to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, [the killer] was stripped of the therapeutic services disabled students need, leaving him to navigate his schooling as a regular student despite mounds of evidence that he wasn’t.
The Blaze reported further:
The school district’s failure to properly handle the killer’s behavioral issues were revealed in report [sic] commissioned by the Broward public school system. Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer on Friday ordered the report be released, but with heavy redactions.
The report, authored by the Collaborative Educational Network of Tallahassee, concluded the Broward school district made two glaring missteps when handling the killer’s behavioral issues, ultimately failing to comply with laws on the treatment of students with disabilities.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, those two instances were:
- District officials “misstated” the killer’s educational options during his junior year when faced with the possibility of being removed from MSD, leading him to refuse special educational opportunities afforded to troubled students.
- When the killer asked school officials to return to the “therapeutic environment” of Cross Creek School, a school for troubled students, Broward officials “did not follow through.”
So, because the district’s administrators screwed up, the killer “had no school counseling or other special education services in the 14 months leading up” to the Valentine’s Day tragedy, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
In February 2017, without an assistance forthcoming, the killer dropped out of school and eventually began plotting his attack after buying weapons.
Now, how does this report stack up to what school administrators have said?
In the past, [Broward Schools Superintendent Robert] Runcie said that when Cruz turned 18 and rejected special education placement, the district could no longer provide him with the services given to students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. But the consultant’s report reveals for the first time that Cruz himself requested to return to special education, and his request went nowhere.
It’s entirely possible that the shooter would have carried out his attack regardless of any assistance he received.
But three things have now become crystal clear:
The school is run by liars and cowards.
The anti-gun movement spurred anew by the shootings is invalid.
The NRA IS STILL just as blameless as it was before but the school isn’t.
