The Parkland school shooting was caused, not by the NRA, but by lefty pro-crime and racial equity policies that dismantled school disciplinary policies. We may be seeing echoes of the same thing in the Dayton mass shooting by a socialist Elizabeth Warren supporter.
(You know, the shooting that the media doesn’t want to talk about.)
High school classmates of the gunman who killed nine people early Sunday in Dayton, Ohio, say he was suspended for compiling a “hit list” of those he wanted to kill and a “rape list” of girls he wanted to sexually assault.
Both former classmates told The Associated Press that Betts was suspended during their junior year at suburban Bellbrook High School after a hit list was found scrawled in a school bathroom. That followed an earlier suspension after Betts came to school with a list of female students he wanted to sexually assault, according to the two classmates, a man and a woman who are both now 24 and spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern they might face harassment.
“There was a kill list and a rape list, and my name was on the rape list,” said the female classmate.
A former cheerleader, the woman said she didn’t really know Betts and was surprised when a police officer called her cellphone during her freshman year to tell her that her name was included on a list of potential targets.
“The officer said he wouldn’t be at school for a while,” she said. “But after some time passed he was back, walking the halls. They didn’t give us any warning that he was returning to school.”
Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Schools officials declined to comment on those accounts, only confirming that Betts attended schools in the district.
The discovery of the hit list early in 2012 sparked a police investigation, and roughly one-third of Bellbrook students skipped school out of fear, according to an article in the Dayton Daily News.
It sounds like no action was taken. And action might have put Betts on a different path and, prevented him from being able to legally purchase firearms.
Cruz was assigned to a PROMISE pro-crime program in 2013.
Bellbrook and local law enforcement is reacting exactly the way that Florida officials did when questions were asked about Cruz. And in this case, Betts was much more of a red flag. The bottom line is that the system failed at the school level.
