Parkland Shooter Was Spared Jail By Obama-Period Program, College Says


Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz was allowed to go on his killing spree attributable to an Obama-era program that spared him jail. 

In line with a Marjory Stoneman Douglas Excessive College report obtained by WLRN, Cruz was referred to the so-called PROMISE Program for a three-day stint after committing an act of violence on the faculty.

 Superintendent Robert W. Runcie carried out the PROMISE Program in Broward County Public Colleges in 2013 on the behest of the Obama administration’s efforts to scale back the variety of minority college students who ended up in jail from crimes that they dedicated on campus.The Day by day Wire’s Ben Shapiro analyzed a report from Actual Clear Investigations and wrote that Broward County Public Colleges “had rewritten its disciplinary insurance policies to make it almost unattainable to droop, expel, or arrest college students for behavioral issues together with prison exercise.”

College district spokesperson Tracy Clark informed WLRN on Friday that directors within the district had been analyzing the shooter’s data and on Sunday they confirmed that he had been referred to PROMISE after he vandalized a rest room on the center faculty shortly after this system was put in place in 2013.

WLRN notes that it isn’t clear whether or not the shooter even attended this system:

Clark stated he appeared at Pine Ridge Training Middle in Fort Lauderdale — an alternate faculty facility the place PROMISE is housed — for an consumption interview the day after the vandalism incident.

Clark informed WLRN: “It doesn’t seem that [the shooter] accomplished the really useful three-day project/placement,” though she wouldn’t “speculate” on the explanation why.

WLRN provides that the Broward County Sheriff’s Workplace beforehand stated that the shooter by no means attended this system.

“The college board studies that there was no PROMISE program participation,” stated BSO consultant Jack Dale.

These impacted by the Parkland taking pictures reacted to the information on social media by calling for Runcie’s removing:
