Well, In My Defense I Was Left Alone…

… And I could no longer in good conscience leave Helen Thomas at the top of this page.

Besides, I crack up every time I see this photo.  I knew it was only a matter of time before someone took the troll dolls from fifty years ago and update it like this.

    Iranian Official Is Convinced the West Is Using Nuclear-Spying Lizards

    Senior advisor to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei believes Western spies infiltrate Iranian nuclear programs using small reptiles.

    Come to think of it, doesn’t Helen Thomas look like some kind of reptile?

    I wish people would just do some basic research before they make fools out of themselves by posting stupid photoshopped shit like this…

    […] As authorities worked to verify information about the gunman after a 14 February 2018 mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida, internet trolls searched for any piece of media (real or fake) they could use to demonize their political opponents. Some such trolls spread a photograph that they claimed showed the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, wearing an “antifa” (anti-fascist) shirt via online forums, blogs, and social media pages. Not only is the man shown in the photograph not shooter Nikolas Cruz, but the t-shirt that person is wearing in the picture nothing to do with the antifa movement, which has its roots in 1930s anti-fascist movements in Europe. […]

    Maybe you should have held off a bit before you started bringing political affiliations in for some kind of ‘gotcha’ moment, because it appears the guy is actually a Trump supporter AND a White Nationalist.

    Here is his Instagram profile photo:

    – OOPSIE –

    Look, the guy wasn’t sewn together very well. He apparently had mental issues. His father is long dead, his mother died last November, and he’s been living with a sibling for the past six weeks or so with a family friend.

    He had been in psychological counseling up until the death of his mother.

    Students and teachers don’t appear to be too surprised to learn that this particular kid was the shooter, which tells me that a whole LOT of people knew this guy had some serious issues.

    Now if you are expecting THIS Liberal to start giving a full-throated howl about ‘gun control’ or some other nonsense like that, then you’d be waiting a very long time.

    But increasing mental illness treatment funding and availability?

    Better awareness?

    Security?

    I can tell you ONE thing for certain: “Thoughts and Prayers” by itself haven’t worked all that well so far…

    Something doesnt jell here.

    Cops knew this guy had problems. School knew the guy was a nutter. Guy puts up posts saying he is going to do a shooting. he had been treated

    Found it

    “He had been undergoing some treatment. We can’t go into detail on that,” Furr said. “I don’t know if he was exactly on law enforcement’s radar, but it wasn’t like there wasn’t concern for him. He had not been back to the clinic for over a year, so there’s been a time where he was receiving treatment and then stopped.”

    FBI was told twice. Shooter put up SOCIAL MEDIA threatening to do this….Given all of the above,..why wasnt his weapon confiscated?

    Am I missing something?

    He had been in psychological counseling up until the death of his mother.

    And this.

    Why wasnt the fact he was in fact being treated for mental illness on his records?

    Should it have been?

    I heard them talk about this earlier today on the radio. He had made some kind of comment on YouTube, and the person who owned the YouTube account contacted the FBI about the comment. The FBI tried to get the contact information through the YouTube database to contact the “Nikolas Cruz” who had made the comment, but there wasn’t any legitimate contact info.

    The FBI would have the same problem with MY Google accounts. (or any other account I have here on the InterTubes) I have never used my real name or address online. NEVER. Anyone who does use their real name and/or address is only asking for trouble. I use a VPN online, so tracing me through my IP address is also a dead end.

    LCBren says:

    And this.

    Why wasnt the fact he was in fact being treated for mental illness on his records?

    Should it have been?

    Who said it wasn’t in his records?

    School records such as psychological records are usually sealed. But certainly SOMEONE had access to them.

    Also, we are talking about Floriduh here.

    In an extraordinary statement, the FBI said a person close to Mr Cruz called its public tip line on January 5 to report concerns about him.

    The caller provided information about Mr Cruz’s “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behaviour and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting”, according to the statement

    The FBI protocol dictates that Mr Cruz should have been determined a “potential threat to life”, based on the caller’s information, and the details should have been forwarded to the Miami field office.

    None of these steps were taken and the tip was not investigated, the FBI has admitted.

    FUCK… :em08:

    How the fuck did this just get tossed to one side and ignored..yeah if someone had called and said I have proof President Trump is an alien from Tralfamador they’d have sent an entire field office out…PREMIER WORLD CLASS LAW ENFORCEMENT MY HAIRY AUSTRALIAN ASS

    And now theres this

    So lemme see here:

    1. Comments on YouTube reported to FBI,said report was also sent to Youtube so chasing that up would have gotten them details they needed incl IP to track him down.

    2. Person with same name as reported YouTube had Instagram photos and film of him shooting with his NAME clearly shown..so it doesnt take a fucking rocket scientist to find THAT….

    3. FBI receives tipoff with suspect name and warns them suspect is dangerous.

    4. FBI could have then gone to NICS and SEEN the weapon purchase listed.

    5. Tipoff and details were NOT sent to Miami office.

    The Chekists at the FIB were too busy trying to fake evidence against President Trump to bother with a mere mass murder.

    DJ Allyn, MPSE growls and barks:

    Piling on against the FBI in this case is not only ignorant, but doesn’t even begin to describe the failures in this story that has occurred over the past eight years. The role the FBI plays in this story is minimal at best.

    ALL THE TIMES NIKOLAS CRUZ WAS REPORTED TO AUTHORITIES BEFORE THE FLORIDA SHOOTING

    2010 – 2017
    According to CNN, which obtained documentation, police responded 39 times to emergency calls at Cruz’s home over a seven-year period. The codes included “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance,” “missing person,” among others, CNN reports.

    THIRTY-NINE TIMES. And this was for the seven-year period before the FBI was ever contacted.

    It seems to me, that there are a LOT of people — local people and entities — who dropped the ball on this. Neighbors, school, the cops — all of them seem to have dropped the ball here.

    But yeah, blame the FBI.

    Terrapod growls and barks:

    I kind of agree with DJ on this (gasp!), so long as it means the Bureau returns to it’s original purpose which was to provide support to local law enforcement where added resources were needed, not to become what is now a corrupt bureaucracy run by political hacks and underlings perfectly OK with distorting, hiding and destroying evidence.

    Seems to me a total shakeout is needed, probably going down 3 or 4 layers deep and being replaced with people who truly respect the Constitution and the mission of the agency. I would also want to see it evicted from DC. There should be 50 state field offices answerable to the governor of the state. Only the smaller field offices in territories and overseas bureaus (assuming any are needed) would report to the much reduced sub office within the DOJ. Also, the attorney general must be of good moral character and appointed by the then sitting president, every time there is a change of command, that selection is voided and a new AG gets appointed.

    While we are at it, all senators should return to being appointed by the governors of the states and be expected to serve for one term of 6 years then return to whatever they were doing before. No more lifetime politicians. Also, when you leave office, all the perks of said office end. No more lifetime pay or special treatment if you have been in the FedGov.
