The debate about the high school massacre in Parkland, Florida, has quickly shifted from the usual ‘gun control’ which seems to spread beyond any reasonable narrative for the first 24 hours to a more calmed down ‘what could have prevented this?’ some two days later.

Today, everyone agrees that the signs were there that this troubled young man, Nikolas Cruz, who was already a dark joke amongst many other high school students, would one day ‘pop’. And, secondly, most commentators agree that certainly the FBI should have seen this one coming a mile away.

Another grieving community comes to face the fact that was not really new, and that everyone expected young Mr Cruz to one day ‘snap’.

Fellow students all agreed when they said he was ‘the dark one’. Young 16-year-old Rachelle Jean, an 11th grader at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland: "Everyone called him 'the school shooter,' it was like, he was off."

But the more troubling fact is that a Mississippi bail bondsman and video blogger had noticed a comment on one of his YouTube videos that said, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter."

The man immediately reported it to YouTube and the FBI (as you are supposed to do) and reports now show that the next day two agents came to his office to take a printout of the comment.

The commenter's username was indeed "Nikolas Cruz".

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">FBI reveals that agency was unable to determine the identity of YouTube user &#39;Nicolas Cruz&#39; after being alerted to chilling comment <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) <a href="">February 15, 2018</a></blockquote>

It is therefore surprising to hear Mr Robert Lasky, the special agent in charge of the FBI office in Miami say on Thursday that they couldn't identify the poster of that comment.

Furthermore, it now appears that an Instagram account, also under Cruz's name, showed him posing with guns and in masks.

Specifically, in one post, he wrote anti-Muslim slurs and apparently mocked the Arabic phrase "Allahu akbar," which means God is great.

If the internet can gather all that about a shooter in 2 days and the FBI had five months to react, can we say that they missed some clues? Or should we go back to discussing ‘gun control’?

Gun control means accurate dispatch of the retard doing the killing. It can be measured via body count the lower the number the better the gun control.
