Note: Even if this was a staged event, the very real loss of life is an unspeakable tragedy for our country and each person involved. Our thoughts and prayers and deepest condolences go out to the victims and their families.
Initial media reports conflict with official narrative
In the following video a witness places suspect in different location from active shooting:
fire drill earlier that day
The shooting started with the fire alarm going off causing mass confusion since there had already been a fire drill that day:
Jim Gard’s math class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was just finishing up a review for a test Wednesday when “the fire alarm went off, which I thought was unusual because we’d just had a fire drill.”
Because they’d just had a fire drill, Gard told his students to wait a minute before leaving, but then “our administrator got on and said, ‘Evacuate the building,'” he told MSNBC on Wednesday night.
A superseding announcement quickly came, he said: “code red.” All but six of his students fled, Gard said; following protocol, he and the rest returned to the building, hid in a closet and “just turned the lights off, as you’re supposed to do in a code red — you know, an active shooter.”
SUSPICIOUS ACTING EYE WITNESSES EMERGE
These people get interviewed over and over by mainstream media and act strangely, like they’ve been given lines to recite which is why they’re called “crisis actors”:
Instant calls for limiting the rights of law abiding citizens
with no mention of how that would stop criminal acts:
Another shooting in our schools, today at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Yes, our children are resilient, but this is not a burden they should ever have to bear. My heart aches for these children & their families. #StopGunViolence

Too many families have lost someone to the senseless epidemic of gun violence. Congress has a moral responsibility to take common sense action to prevent the daily tragedy of gun violence in communities across America. #EnoughIsEnough

Maybe, just maybe, after 18 school shootings in America in just 43 days of 2018 the Congress might want to consider common-sense gun safety legislation and save innocent lives.

Another senseless tragedy at an American school. My heart is with the victims and their families. When will we wake up? When will we take action to prevent these shootings from occurring? These tragedies are the new normal, and that should make all of us sick.

How many more communities need to be traumatized by gun violence before Congress acts?
Do something. Lead.

This attack comes on the heels of the released FISA memos and during an immigration debate that is leading to bad outcomes for the liberal/neocon deep state.
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida is less than 40 miles south of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago luxury resort that functions as Trump’s Camp David, making it very difficult for him to avoid the highly politicized backlash that is sure to manifest.
The FBI Was Warned
About A School Shooting Threat From A YouTube User Named Nikolas Cruz In September:
Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. “I’m going to be a professional school shooter,” said a user named Nikolas Cruz.
The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment and calling the bureau’s Mississippi field office. He also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.
Agents with the bureau’s Mississippi field office got back to him “immediately,” Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25.
“They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person,” Bennight told BuzzFeed News. “I didn’t. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them.”
FBI agents contacted Bennight again Wednesday, after a 19-year-old named Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida, killing at least 17 people.
Though his name matches the YouTube user flagged in September, FBI officials would not say whether they have confirmed that the account belonged to Cruz.
But around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday — about 30 minutes after Cruz was taken into custody by police in Broward County — Special Agent Ryan Furr with the FBI’s Miami field office called Bennight and left him a voicemail.
“I think we spoke with you in the past about a complaint that you made about someone making a comment on your YouTube channel,” the agent said in the message, which Bennight provided to BuzzFeed News. “I just wanted to follow up with you on that and ask you a question with something that’s come up, if you wouldn’t mind giving me a ring.”
A few hours later, Bennight said, FBI agents in Mississippi visited him again in person, pressing for more information about the YouTube user Nikolas Cruz.
“They asked me if I knew who he was. I didn’t. I don’t,” Bennight said. “Then they left.”
When contacted by BuzzFeed News, Furr declined to comment on the call, and directed questions about the shooting to the FBI’s public affairs office. The office did not respond to multiple calls or emails Wednesday night.
