School, BSO Deputy Wanted To Involuntarily Commit Confessed School Shooter

Zachary Cruz, 18, was arrested at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and charged with trespassing on school grounds, a Broward Sheriff's Office report said.

On March 19, 2018 at 1630hrs, the defendant Zachary Cruz, unlawfully entered the school grounds of Stoneman Douglas High School and committed the crime of trespassing on school grounds after prior warnings by school officials to refrain from entering the school campus.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, has confessed to the February 14 school shooting and faces the death penalty for the murder of 17 and the attempted murder of 17 others. They listed several factors, including that Cruz knowingly created a risk of death for many people and that the shooting was "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel".

Officials were so concerned about the mental stability of the student accused of last month's Florida school massacre that they decided he should be forcibly committed. The law allows a law enforcement officer such as Peterson to initiate commitment under the Baker Act.

The documents do not say why Cruz was not committed under the Baker Act or whether he may not have qualified for other reasons. The AP reports that Peterson, as the School Resource Officer at the high school, had the ability to involuntarily commit someone under the Baker Act.

Jim Carrey Paintings: Actor blasted for portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders
"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked", Carrey captioned his piece. Comedians often land in hot water due to their jokes, but for Jim Carrey , it's his hobby that has earned him criticism.

The report said Zachary Cruz had no connections to Broward County at this time.

The FBI is taking the blame for not acting on the situation regarding Nikolas Cruz. "(Cruz) states that he is better now, reports that he is no longer lonely and states that his grades have gone back up".

The FBI was also under fire for not acting on tips suggesting Cruz was possibly planning a school shooting.

Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder.

If Cruz had been institutionalized, it would have appeared on his record and constituted a major red flag at the moment of trying to buy a gun. He faces the death penalty if convicted, but his public defender Melisa McNeill has said he would plead guilty in return for a life prison sentence. He resided in the Lantana, Florida-area, which is about 40 miles north of Parkland in Palm Beach County, along with his brother and a family friend, Rocxanne Deschamps.
