Nikolas Cruz: Army JROTC cadet; member NRA grant-supported rifle team and exclusive competitive varsity marksmanship team
The above information and photos of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corp, Rifle Team, and 4-man Varsity Marksmanship Team on the school’s website and in the video linked below offer a whole new understanding of the daily culture of that school as well as new meaning to the photo of Cruz taken with a firearm or practicing with his air rifle and even him stating that he wanted to become a professional school shooter; one who trains well enough as a shooter on his school’s rifle team and in his school’s marksmanship program to one day earn the rank of professional marksman in the armed forces.
All of the above and the fact of inheriting $800,000 which made him vulnerable to unethical adults with authority over him, civil or otherwise, really makes me wonder if Cruz was indeed a patsy for the shooting tragedy.
Please watch the following video.
Also, do not lose sight of the fact that the NRA had given a $10,000 grant to Cruz’ public high school for their rifle training program which is something the American public is not supposed to figure out.
This is because, otherwise, especially if Cruz was only a patsy – one arrested mules away, more than an hour after the shooting, in street clothes and with no guns, merely walking along a public street – all the media and teen activist pressure being levied against the NRA and our second amendment rights would appear to be grossly unfair and shockingly premeditated.
Parkland school shooter honed skills on a team supported by the NRA
The NRA Foundation, the gun lobby’s charitable arm, gave more than $10,000 worth of assistance to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s rifle marksmanship team in 2016, the Associated Press reported Friday. Cruz, who was a member of the team, reportedly excelled despite ongoing violent outbursts that saw him expelled from the school for “disciplinary reasons” in early 2017.
“He was a very good shot,” Aaron Diener, a former teammate, told the AP.
Florida shooting suspect was on school rifle team that got NRA grant
The troubled teen authorities say killed 17 people at a Florida high school excelled in an air-rifle marksmanship program supported by a grant from the National Rifle Association Foundation, part of a multimillion-dollar effort by the gun group to support youth shooting clubs and other programs.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, was wearing a maroon shirt with the logo from the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when he was arrested Wednesday shortly after the shooting. Former JROTC cadets told The Associated Press that Cruz was a member of the small varsity marksmanship team that trained together after class and traveled to other area schools to compete.
The following witness claims that she was with Cruz in the hall and they could hear gunfire happening on the other side of the school.
This witness claims there were 3 shooters AND “Army people” on campus moving bodies into the corners of hallways and throwing something on top – while the shooting was going on.
This is the most detailed logical account of the shooting I’ve found; its given by a teacher, and at the very end he states that he couldn’t see the shooter’s face because the shooter wore a mask.
It was the school’s police resource officer and 4 Broward County deputies who failed to enter the school building during the shooting.
The following article that has an embedded video helps to clarify that a large number of Coral Gables police officers did respond to the shooting, once the camera delay had elapsed, and 40 of them did enter the building and were able to carry victims to safety and medical help.

Parkland student (Jalen Martin): ‘Secret Service was present, changed school security policy, several weeks before shooting’
United States Secret Service personnel were on the ground at the school several weeks before the shooting to change security protocols.
Ur has been confirmed that a fire drill and an active shooter drill were pre-scheduled for Valentine’s Day.
Additionally, teachers and staff were told at the beginning of the semester that an active shooting drill would be taking place sometime during the semester and that the drill would be unannounced.
Okay, but why would the U.S. Secret Service, not their own city or county police or sheriff departments or even Homeland Security, EVER be involved with ANYTHING having to do with ANY high school’s safety protocals?
