In Florida Shooting Republicans Play the Blame Game - And Get Burned

And No, Not Every Threat Can be Contained

Seeking salvation from tragedy Donnie has castigated the FBI for not detecting the threat that the Florida murderer was.  And the state's Governor, who is ready to run for the Senate was also attacking the FBI.  But it turns out the Florida social services was the major problem here.

Florida social services investigated alleged school shooter Nikolas Cruz before rampage, knew he wanted to buy gun

"Florida’s state social services agency investigated Nikolas Cruz’s home life more than a year before police say he killed 17 people at his former high school, closing the inquiry after determining that his “final level of risk is low,” despite learning that the teenager had behavioral struggles and was planning to buy a gun, according to an investigative report.
The investigation detailed several unnerving behaviors from Cruz, including that he had cut his arms on Snapchat, had a Nazi symbol and a racial epithet on his backpack and intended to purchase a gun for unknown reasons, according to a Florida Department of Children and Families report obtained by The Washington Post. Ultimately, the investigation was closed in November 2016, just months before Cruz bought the AR-15 assault-style rifle that police say he would later use in the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla."

So Gov. Scott, looking for someone to blame? Look in the mirror. The truth of couorse is that these things can not be predicted. There are probably tens of thousands of individual who fit the profile. Finding the one who will act is impossible. Politicizing the act is reprehensible.
