Broward School District Makes Explosive Admission About Parkland Shooter

Someone needs to lose their job over this.

Published

The Broward County school district has dropped a bombshell by admitting that Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz was part of a controversial restorative justice program, despite having previously stated he had no connection to it.

Spokesman for the  school district, Tracy Clark, stated that Cruz was put in the PROMISE program after he vandalized a bathroom in November of 2013.

According to records, Cruz did not complete the full program.

The disclosure, which came after two other sources told WLRN that Mr. Cruz had been admitted to PROMISE, directly contradicts statements by Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie, who has long defended the program and insisted the gunman was never part of it.

The school district is holding a forum Monday night on PROMISE — which stands for Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Supports and Education — enacted to end the “school-to-prison pipeline” by reducing suspensions, expulsions and arrests.

About 1,600 to 2,000 students participate each year in PROMISE, which is aimed at offering counseling and therapy to students who have committed nonviolent infractions.

Launched in 2013, PROMISE was at the forefront of a national movement that culminated in the Obama administration’s 2014 directive on school discipline, which threatened school districts with civil-rights investigations unless they reduced racial disparities in school discipline.

The fact this school district openly, blatantly lied about Cruz’s involvement with this program is horrifying on every level. It’s a clear cut case of putting a political agenda above the safety and security of students, revealing that the current public school system is more concerned with indoctrination than with making sure kids get a well balanced education in a peaceful environment.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is currently toying with the idea of removing the program after receiving a heap of complaints about it causing serious issues for schools who have been put under pressure to lower suspension and expulsion rates by keeping troubled students in class.

Let’s hope the individuals who lied about this are held accountable for their actions and their jobs stripped away from them.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
