The February 2, 2018 school
shooting in Parkland Florida was preceded by a history of animal cruelty, a
prime indicator of violence against humans. My daughter is having second
thoughts about becoming a school teacher so we talked about school terrorism.
She said “schools aren’t what
they used to be…” I agreed. Neither is the FBI. We know of at least one confirmed report
to the FBI, a phone call on January 5th that lasted over 13 minutes in which a
female caller told the FBI that Cruz had vowed to “shoot up the school”.
I made some calls. Local
officials are also responsible for
this predicted school shooting. Nikolas Cruz was not watched even though he had a
known background of animal cruelty. Cruz bragged about shooting squirrels and
chickens with a pellet gun (which is not to kill but to inflict a painful
reaction) and “trying to get a dog to attack a piglet”.
Torture and Cruelty (IATC) is a known behavior pattern among serial murderers
and rapists. Nikolas Cruz is but one example. I explained to my daughter and talked
to other veterans. We worry this will
escalate into more calls for “gun control” instead of “help the mentally
I wasn’t a medic but I learned how to spot a
life-threatening situation. How can mainstream media
ignore the connection between violence and the onslaught of vaccines our kids
suffer today? Was this kid (not old enough to vote) on medication? Or was he off
In 2017 there were 307 mass shootings in the U.S., nearly one per day. As for
Cruz, no officer I served under would have ignored the warning signs of
attack. I’ve been told I could “read sign better than an injun” but as a
spotter, that was my job. It is a teacher’s job to understand and keep an eye on
kids. It is the FBI’s job to “read and heed”
the clear signals this guy gave out.
First off, we know that most psychopaths or serial killers have a history of
animal abuse. Nick Cruz had just turned 19 years old. I made another phone call
and confirmed he was suffering from autism and attention-deficit hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD) but those significant facts have barely been mentioned in the
media. Was he still on medication? Short of calling pharmacies in his area, I
couldn’t uncover that.
The connection between psychotropic meds,
violence and vaccines is the biggest news of this century but the media ignores
it. Why? Because the pharmaceutical industry is among their biggest advertisers.
Nothing excuses what Cruz did nor can anything mitigate the unbearable loss the
victims’ parents are suffering - but was he on medications? If so, was he taking
his meds? Then, when I thought I was on the right track, my daughter showed me a whole
vaccine section on her tablet. OK, I get
Jeannie then found where the Miami Herald reported “Nikolas Cruz was getting
treatment at Henderson Mental Health” but not much about his medications or
psychiatric evaluations. Again, not making excuses for a mass killer but Cruz
was an orphan. His adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, died of pneumonia on Nov. 1,
2017, following which he moved in with Jim Lewis, a lawyer representing the
family. Mr. Lewis said there had been no notable behavioral issues and no
warning of the horror unfolding in the mind of Nikolas Cruz. No mention of meds.
Many medical scholars refute the connection between school shootings and
psychotropic meds or the veritable vaccine assault on developing minds. I see it
as sure as I can spot a sniper. I asked my kid to research the explosion of
school massacres as compared to what she says is a growing list of vaccines required for educational enrollment. That was an eye-opener!
So was the big increase in drug use. Is that due to easy availability or
because doctors have been over-prescribing since year 2000?
Does this list of
ii List Of School Shootings hold the
causative answer? Note the increase in school shootings in just over a decade. Jeannie
pointed out there were as many school shootings (15) after the advent of
required immunizations as occurred in the entire previous half-century!
My position is simple. Let
teachers carry and/or hire retired soldiers and law enforcement officers to
protect our kids. Note I said “Officers” not rank and file. I’ve learned that
“dog people” are studied and thoughtful people. The webmaster agreed so he’s giving you the floor.
Where do you think society went wrong?

Anonymous said: wow what a
leap...immunizations, really? With nothing linking them except they both
increased in the last 10 years (I'm not saying that's true but that's your claim
without references to any proof btw)? Let me guess, you've never passed a
science class in your life...
Bonnie Hale said: The whole shebang has gone wrong
IMHO. It's everyone looking out for themselves anymore, and if you don't want to
be "politically correct" you are labeled with being "whatever"; racist, mean,
nosy, or too religious, some darn thing to explain away your sensible solutions.
The egregious failures of so many, cannot even list them all that ALLOWED this
young man to end up doing what he did, should shame the entire bunch. There is
no way this should ever have happened :(
BJ Andrews said: A reader-friend suggested I
check this page. He's right, your insightful comments deserve a follow-up story.
Perhaps based on the percentage of "shooters" that had a personal dog???
Sunny Wippert said: @Carol Baker,
Itʻs hard to be a conservative these days. What happened to Huckabee is perfect
example. As for the political positions in the dog fancy, Liberal or
Conservative, I think we all share the same ideals concerning property rights
and business practices concerning our dogs.
School security has to be a
local issue. President Trump has said local districts will get Federal
Assistance. Some districts may want to train teachers who want to conceal carry
in the classrooms providing onsite armed security and a deterrence to would-be
assailants.. Others may find problems with that and have another approach. Also,
a national list of certain (not all) mental disorders certainly should be
available for background checks. (for example I think agoraphobia is a disorder
that effects a persons life in a major way but shouldn't preclude gun
ownership). It's not simple but this is a new world that sadly means our kids
need to be locked in and guarded, while we deal with other problems like mental
illness, drugs, violent video games and the decline of the nuclear family. And
all the anger and rudeness that seems to be everywhere these days.
Carol Baker said: I love this discussion stuff
you guys have. I just commented on "the Joan Huber case". It is more about dogs
than this story but I find the dog fancy is really all about a lot of different
people and ideas. Just saw on TV this morning that Mike Huckabee was kicked off
the country music board because of his conservative position. Why don't you
people do a survey on the political position of show people? Most of my friends
are pretty liberal but what was just too much.
Bill Carpenter said: I've watched the TV
takeoff on this and I agree in theory with all everyone said below but only in
theory. In reality the only way to cut back on these tragedies is to take away
the guns. Try doing that in Chicago or Detroit or South LA. The only guns we'll
get are those owned by law abiding citizens. Citizens, The people who will soon
be outnumbered are the only people bound by the Constitution. I'm new in dogs
but not in the law and politics. This poor kid was a victim of a too busy, hands
off, permissive, over-medicated, over-indulged society. I was surprised that a
dog rag covered it but it needs to be acknowledged.
Stan Mullen said: The shooter had been reported
to exhibit sudden impulsive behavior (walking down the school hallways and
deliberately bumping into other students, suddenly jumping up from his desk and
dancing, etc.). So we can assume that he was prescribed "downers". They are
known to produce "depression". Some people with "depression" decide to commit
suicide and some of them decide to take other people out with them (to give
their unhappy lives notice and importance). WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO ALLOW PEOPLE
TAKING THESE DRUGS TO OWN FIREARMS. The school shooter back in Connecticut and
Roseburg, Oregon were on drugs. The one in Roseburg was taking "lithium", for
instance. If we let the drug loophole continue--we are asking for more school
Pat Rock said: Common sense dictates that if
you assemble people in a "gun free zone" you have a responsibility to protect
them. No matter the cost, schools for children need to be fenced and gates
secured and an armed guard on duty. College campuses should have metal detectors
to prevent criminals from entering buildings.
Broward County is one corrupt
government among many. The policy has been that criminal acts by middle and high
school students are not reported, but are supposedly handled within the school,
keeping the crime rate apparently lower for political reasons.
I started public school in the 1950's, when children were taught by their
parents that teachers should be respected and fellow students were, too. That
was in the days of polio, and there were always one or two students in every
class wearing a leg brace or walking with a crutch. Those kids weren't bullied!
Yes, we need to identify the mentally ill, and not ignore signs of potential
criminality, but we also need to go back to teaching civility in the home. A
government can only work when the vast majority of the citizenry is law-abiding.

that needs to be addressed by our law enforcement and our government.
