Parkland Shooting Survivor Takes on Trump Directly in a Powerful Speech


Lori Alhadeff's 14-year-old daughter Alyssa was killed and invoked the president's 11-year-old son, Barron, as she angrily called for help.

"You don't take cars off the road because someone got drunk, used one and killed someone".

A person described as close to Cruz called an Federal Bureau of Investigation tip line on Jan 5 to report concerns about him, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "My kid is dead. They had a vigil last night in Parkland, and I think there were more people than live in Parkland ... the pictures are pretty incredible".

'I heard some gunshots and I saw some high schoolers running, ' Ben said.

"I wasn't able to do anything about it". "Our kids should be safe".

"Those who support gun rights will not be elected by us", a speaker said to cheering applause.

As evidence, they've cited the former deputy director's connection to Clinton allies, and they've publicized anti-Trump text messages exchanged between an FBI agent and a bureau lawyer.

Jorge Fernandez said it would have been cost prohibitive to cancel, and that they extend their "deepest condolences" to the people involved in the Parkland shooting. The caller was concerned Cruz could attack a school.

The startling admission came as the agency was already facing criticism for its treatment of a tip about a YouTube comment posted past year.

From a mosaic of public records, interviews with friends and family and online interactions, it appears Cruz was unstable and violent to himself and those around him - and that when notified about his threatening behavior, law enforcement did little to stop it. The FBI said it could not determine who made it. He said it's now clear that the nation's premier law enforcement agency missed warning signs.

Last month, Rippon said he disagreed with the Trump administration's values. I feel like I have a lot of big things coming up next.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has said that his office had received about 20 "calls for service" in the past few years regarding Cruz and would scrutinize all of them to see if they were handled properly.

Cruz's attorneys at the Broward County Public Defender's Office could not immediately be reached for comment.

Parkdale, an affluent suburb north of Miami, was shattered when Nikolas Cruz, 19, unleashed an attack on Valentine's Day, having previously been expelled from the high school.

But not long after, the sentiment at Pine Trails Park, where the vigil was held, shifted from sorrow to anger.

"It means the world to me to be here", recent graduate Danielle Garsten said. "Let's not allow fear to win".

Those who died were friends, classmates, teammates, teachers and family members of residents of this peaceful neighborhood, making it particularly hard for the mourners to grapple with the pain inflicted by Nikolas Cruz wielding an AR-15 a day earlier.

"We have spoken with victims and families and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy", Wray said in a statement on Friday. "It's going to be a mark on their name forever".

The president tweeted earlier that he would meet with people "whose lives have been totally shattered". We have to protect our children, we have to fight for them, it is our job as parents.

Aaron Feis was an assistant football coach and security guard at the school who shielded others in the gunfire. Some took politicians to task on Twitter.

Trump said he originally planned to visit the Parkland area on Sunday or Monday, but decided he didn't want to wait. He shot into four rooms on the first floor - going back to spray bullets into two of the rooms a second time - then went upstairs and shot a single victim on the second floor.
