If ever there was an argument for taking cases of animal cruelty seriously, it would be the massacre, carried out by a teen, that took place on Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Florida. The authorities have identified 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz as the individual responsible for the death of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Multiple people have described Cruz as an outcast who was “weird,” and a loner with probable mental-health issues. Reports from those who knew the teen have indicated that he proudly tortured and killed animals and posted gruesome images of them on an Instagram account, reported the Daily Mail.

Cruz was said to be “obsessed” with guns and had threatened students at the high school last year – he was expelled from the high school after getting into a fight with a boy who was dating his ex-girlfriend. The disturbing allegations against Cruz continue…he allegedly abused his ex-girlfriend, stalked a girl who he was “obsessed with,” threatened other students, and enough people knew about his violent tendencies that it came as no surprise to many when he was identified as the shooter behind the horrific high school massacre.

Cruz was arrested at 4 p.m., approximately two hours after the deadly shooting; he is facing 17 counts of premeditated murder.

    I’m not surprised this POS abused animals, and I’m not surprised nobody did anything about it. Had they maybe he wouldn’t have been out on the streets able to kill these innocent people!. Another question is why with all the mental and abuse issues he was allowed to even buy the gun. I don’t care about his “Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights” when they lead to the massacre we saw yesterday! How about our rights to be safe and know our kids are safe in school!

      It’s not that he was ‘allowed’ to buy a gun…he had to be in an institution in order for him to be stopped from buying one. It’s not like his adoptive parents can write a note telling all the stores to not sell him one. Hell, this woman didn’t even know he that many guns to begin with! Also, if he wanted one bad enough, he could just go to the streets to buy them. Broward County isn’t the best place to be. Drugs come in and drugs go out there. If someone really wants something, there is nothing stopping them.

    Cruz ever prosecuted for animal torture? NO? System failed. FBI is now very interested about animal abuse and torture as they know it carries over to humans. SYSTEM FAILURE. CITIZENS FAILURE IF THEY FAILED TO REPORT IT. LAW ENFORCEMENT IF THEY DID NOTHING. COURTS AND JUDGES FAILURE IF THEY DID NOTHING. Lets get the truth out then give that monster Cruz the big needle.

    And our President says to Pray!!! As much as I believe in the Higher Power >> what is happening here in America Needs More than Just Prayer… We need to make changes to the system . I believe in the second amendment and we believe in the right to have arms ::: We can also pass any background in the world and the Crazies out there doing this are attention seeking, murders , who want to surpass Son of Sam ; the Columbine Boys and other’s. Look at all the serial killers who abused Animals… The FBI know that by now!!! I have reported an animal abuser several times and it has gone unaddressed!!! Why. I think it is indifference!!!

      His dad is dead. His mom was sick. They adopted him and his sister I believe…or brother. He was a troubled kid (not that it was an excuse) but without proper upbringing, this is what you get. Since he was adopted, where the hell is Family Services??? Aren’t they supposed to check up on foster kids? This is the system that failed him. They are the ones that should be held accountable. If my child was in that school, best believe Family Services would hearing from my lawyer.

    Pray all you want and it’s not going to stop this evil. I’m sick to death of the hypocrites like Marco Rubio and the POS in chief who talk about praying but do nothing. trump even overturned Obama’s change in the law which kept the mentally ill from having guns, yet he has the nerve to talk about keeping guns out of their hands NOW!

    It’s past time to do something! The FBI knows that torturing and killing animals is a sign of people going on to kill humans, yet the courts and a lot of other humans still tolerate it and do nothing. All the violent pictures and statements on his Instagram account and he was still not stopped.

    Every other country out there has guns under control but us, and that’s because the Supreme Court has chosen a radical reading of the Second Amendment our Founders never intended. If these weapons were available back then, do you really think this would even be an issue?

    When Tommy guns were a problem they became illegal. Why is it a problem now? We had gun control laws back in the old days when some cities PROHIBITED people from even having them. Why have we even let a small group of NRA crazies rule this conversation? Because republican politicians are in their pocket? Yes.

    I agree with you maxiemom100% and from what I have read the FBI knew about this monster. People don’t need assault rifles and shouldn’t be allowed to have them, they aren’t useful for hunting or self defense. Our president needs to put aside his stupid Wall that will do nobody any good and put the money into gun control before more of our children are killed like this! I’m glad my kids are grown, It’s becoming more frightening by the moment to even think of sending a child to school!

    Lots of kids come from bad environments and never go out and kill 17 high school students or abuse animals – this punk needs to be sitting in prison until they pull the plug on him. I have absolutely no empathy towards him or his past – he did what he did because he wanted to – and had the arsenal to do it with. He is not a minor, he is an adult and maybe, just maybe he will be sitting in jail with a relative of one of the kids he killed – that would a time for the justice he so well deserves – a shank in the shower.
