In a monologue on his CNN program “Smerconish,” the host accused law enforcement agencies of ignoring repeated warnings about Cruz’s behavior in the months leading up to the shooting last week that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“Let me say it flat out: The Florida school shooting was an epic intelligence failure,” Smerconish said. “It never should have happened. In this technological world of Apple and Google, Facebook and Amazon, better management of data by law enforcement need to keep us safe from mass killings. And better integration of that which was in a variety of databases should have kept us safe from this guy.”
Listen to his first sentence.
