"Nikolas Cruz, the gunman who carried out the massacre of students and faculty members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018, pleaded guilty in a Florida courtroom Wednesday to 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder. Cruz, 23, faces a minimum of life in prison and maximum of the death penalty, which will be decided by a jury in the upcoming sentencing phase of the trial.
"I am very sorry for what I did, and I have to live with it every day. If I were to get a second chance, I would do everything in my power to try to help others," he said. "I have to live with this every day, and it brings me nightmares and I can't live with myself sometimes, but I try to push through because I know that's what you guys would want me to do." Jury selection in the penalty phase is scheduled for January 4."
He went on to say that he hates drugs and Americans should stop smoking weed and stop causing racism and violence in the streets....Now I know this is just a young kid who was troubled; but let's not lose sight of the fact that this could still be a false flag situation as most mass shootings are..how soon we forget Sandy Hook...should this young kid not have a second chance because of the hatred of the anti-gun nuts like Fred Guttenberg and David Hogg??
Also, why aren't certain elected officials doing more to speak up for this kid? Specifically, Marjorie Taylor Greene....her whole shtick for a long time was harassing the parents of Parkland shooting victms and telling them to get over it...now she is silent in defense of the guy who helped launched her career...sad...
