If he was involved in white supremacist [sic] groups, as has variously been claimed, then he would have been consorting with undercover government operatives, imo. That would complicate this whole notion that the FBI tragically ignored, with all due hand wringing after the fact, a tip from the public about him.

Although the whole trick is that the intelligence communities are reportedly compartmentalized. The left hand in a given case might not want the right hand of its same, general apparatus to know what it was up to....

Maybe the FBI failed because the head of the FBI was busy pursuing a non event in an effort to get President Trump impeached?

Progressivism kills - in more ways than one.

They say they are going to tear down the school and build a new one because the kids are afraid to go back there. What is wrong with America's children? Bunch of whiney coddled nut-bags.

The federal indictments handed down today on Russians meddling in the election says you're horribly misinformed.

It's not going to be long before a list of indicted trump campaign associates are similarly indicted along with the Buffoon and convicted for their crimes against the United States

Right. So how many massacres have you actually seen occur in a public facility you've frequent regularly?

Your second sentence does not flow logically from your first. You're just hot air, spouting partisan unreality as sure as the Republican base of white supremacist [sic] morons do.

I wonder what is it going to take for these different agencies to take these threats serious. It seems there are always some tell tell signs but no one seems to act on them. Counselors have an idea, principals, students ..... threats are made, kids a major problem, there is just something that doesn't click. Also, the schools need to get with it. I know there are multiple buildings on a campus but I would think schools would start seriously looking at their weaknesses and begin making changes. Tearing down the school is not going to erase what happened there.

I don't go on about white people, retardate. I comment on white supremacists [sic].

Hey moron, "white person" does not equal "white supremacist [sic]." You white supremacist [sic] are a subset of white people.

I know this is far, far, far too complex for you to understand, you worthless trash.

"It is not clear whether some of the twenty calls they received overlapped with the thirty-nine times sheriff's deputies visited Cruz's home or if they were separate incidents. These latest developments come at the same time as it was also revealed that the FBI failed multiple times after they received multiple tips about Cruz over a five-month period, which started in September 2017." ---Ryan Saavedra, 16 February 2018

The corrupt progressives want more school shootings in an effort to repeal the 2nd Amendment. It's that simple.

This is why the progressives refuse to do what it actually requires to keep our children safe - Armed security in all of America's schools. How many more of our children have to die to serve the progressive agenda?

This just proves the fallacy that we can prevent these things by reporting every "red flag," we see. The FBI can't be expected to keep up with thousands of reports, from legitimate concerns to people saying their neighbor seems weird. The idea that we can keep guns out of the hands of the bad guys, and that we can predict who these bad guys might be, is a huge fiction made up by the NRA to distract from the real problem. Guns. Every country has mentally ill people, criminals, and ordinary people who snap -- they don't have these mass shootings because they don't have guns.

I think you will find the NRA and any other gun rights organization knows and states that keeping guns away from criminals is a fools errand. That they don't is a huge fiction made up by anti-gun zealots to distract from the real problem - lack of enforcement of the current laws.

You need to revisit your statement about other countries not having mass shootings. I know Obama said it but it isn't factual. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

Stop being a dupe. There is no other explanation. The progressive left refuse to apply common sense here. They're clearly willing to sacrifice our children.

We use armed guards to protect our money in banks. We use armed guards to protect private property - many progressives use armed guards for their own possessions and interests - including for their own safety.

BUT THESE SAME PROGRESSIVES REFUSE TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Stop being one of their sheep.
