PARKLAND, Fla. — When Nikolas Cruz turned 18, he refused to let the school district continue providing him with crucial mental health and other services — and there was nothing officials could do about it, Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said Monday.
WATCH: Huge group of armed Black protesters march on Confederate monument in Georgia
Armed black protesters marched in Georgia on Independence Day to protest one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world.
"Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial, a nine-story-high bas-relief sculpture carved into a sprawling rock face northeast of Atlanta, is perhaps the South’s most audacious monument to its pro-slavery legacy still intact," Reuters reported on Friday. "The monument - which reopens on Independence Day weekend after the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to close for weeks - has faced renewed calls for removal since the May 25 killing of George Floyd, a Black man who died during an arrest by a white police officer who pinned his neck to the ground with a knee."
Matt Gaetz mocked by conservative for blowing his latest attempt to help Trump
In a scathing column for the Bulwark, founder Charles Sykes joined the Twitter pile-on of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for trying to make a point about the St Louis couple who menaced Black Lives Matter protesters with weapons as they marched past the house -- saying the Gaetz attempt to use the photos of the couple to help Donald Trump went down in flames in spectacular fashion.
The View’s Meghan McCain says ‘defund the police’ slogan is breeding hysteria — and the gun-waving St. Louis couple proves that
Conservative Meghan McCain returned to "The View" Tuesday to talk about the St. Louis couple, Mark and Patricia McCluskey, waving around an AR-15 at Black Lives Matter protesters.
McCain, who has a license to carry a gun, noted that it was clear the couple had no idea what they were doing. Patricia McCluskey, in particular, had her finger on the trigger of her handgun and was pointing it not only at the protesters but at her husband as well.
"She could have easily shot her husband in the head!" said McCain.
"I have a problem starting there. If you're going to do this -- me and my husband go to the range often. I'm very responsible," McCain said. "The first thing you learn in safety is you never point your weapon at something you don't intend to shoot and hit. There are many different angles of videos. I've seen about 40. I think this is what happens when people go into the suburbs in this kind of style."
