Glenn Breaks Down the Parkland Shooting Timeline: 'This Was a Massive Failure of the System'

Red flags which warned authorities of the Parkland school shooter’s dangerous and disturbing behavior were waving in the faces of local and federal law enforcement officials and government agencies for at least two years before he gunned down 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

On the show today, Glenn took to the chalk board to break down the timeline of the missed warning signs over the past two years:

February 5, 2016 – The Broward County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous call reporting that the shooter had threatened on Instagram to shoot up the school. He also posted picture of himself with guns and knives. The information was forwarded to the school deputy who didn’t follow up.

September 23, 2016 – A counselor reported to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office that the shooter had possibly attempted suicide attempt, was cutting himself, and had expressed interest in buying a gun. It was reported to his school who said they would conduct an assessment.

September 28, 2016 – Florida Department of Children and Families, who had formerly been alerted to posts on Snapchat of the shooter cutting his arms and saying he wanted to buy a gun, were called to the Cruz home to investigate a disturbance. They ruled that he was “at low risk of harming himself or others.”

September 24, 2017 – A YouTube user sent a tip to the FBI, via tips@fbi.gov, reporting that a commenter named “Nikolas Cruz,” wrote “I'm going to be a professional school shooter” on his YouTube channel. The FBI responded that they could not “positively identify” the person who posted this comment.

November 1, 2017 – A family member called the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to report that the shooter had weapons and asked the police to come take them. The weapons were not collected by police.

November 30, 2017 – A caller from Massachusetts calls the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to report that the shooter was collecting guns and knives and could be a “school shooter in the making.” No report was filed.

January 5, 2018 – Call to FBI tip line, a person close to the shooter reported that “has a desire to kill people” and could “conduct a school shooting.” This tip was never passed on the local Florida FBI office.

“The warning signs were all over this shooter,” said Glenn. “This was a massive failure of the system, again. There were 18 calls made to law enforcement, 39 home visits and 2 FBI tips by name. Nothing was ever done.

WATCH: Race-Baiters Be Damned: 3 Big Lies About Racism DEBUNKED

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

WARNING from a survivor: Is China’s horrific past America’s terrifying future?

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.
