Florida Prosecutors To Seek Death Penalty For Accused Parkland Shooter


Florida prosecutors announced on Tuesday they will seek the death penalty for the accused Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz.

The State Attorney’s office listed seven “aggravating factors” that a jury could use to justify the capital punishment, according to The Sun Sentinel.

Those factors include the “heinous, atrocious and cruel” nature of the crime, and the “cold, calculated and premeditated” it was carried out, as well as Cruz’s prior criminal record.
Cruz has admitted to the shooting, and has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

  1. NO! NO! NO!
    Although there were several witnesses who heard shooting coming from several locations at once and some even saw the armored clad shooters, no one actually saw Cruz being the shooter. And if Cruz will get the death penalty, so should the other shooters who are still roaming freely and no one even cares to find them.

  2. I’m no bleating heart liberal but you have a disturbed, possibly mental person admitting to something that he might not have done, might have done with others or might have actually done. Based on all the news reports so far, he seems like the right person to blame and close the case. But, if others were involved as is suspected in the Las Vegas shootings (and other shooting/terrorist ‘style’ incidents) then we are not administering justice.

    • “Based on all the news reports so far” According to the Torah, witnesses are what counts, not news reports especially fake news. This drugged up kid also admitted taking down the World Trade Center. True, the US judicial system does not follow Torah laws but whatever it is, without witnesses (which there weren’t any) one should not give judgement. If this kid will be sentenced to death, American justice system can easily be considered a Sodomite system where the truth doesn’t matter.

    • I’m with you on this.
      It’s already clear that there was a lot of incompetence and gross negligence on the part of law enforcement in this case. How Peterson and Israel are allowed to walk away from this scott free is beyond me.
      It’s almost the same thing with the Etan Patz disappearance. Many many years past and they couldn’t find any killer or motive and suddenly out of the blue some mentally disturbed person is sitting in a prison cell for some other crime starts admitting to killing Kennedy, Lincoln, Nicole Brown, Ron Goldman, Vince Foster, John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, etc… Now suddenly, the ever hardworking Manhattan DA & FBI finally realized, they have their guy, Pedro Hernandez. So Jose Ramos and Etans Parents were finally off the hook. Some totally wacked out guy was told to admit he killed Etan, and the everything is calm in the world. Talk about police corruption on top of corruption.
      So, no, I don’t trust what the incompetent prosecutors in Parkland feed us.

      • I don’t think this is an Eitan Patz story with police corruption. In this case, there are loads of truth leading to this kid’s innocence being covered up by authorities and media with tons of lies and fabrications. Why should we allow the authorities to kill a person who unfortunately can’t stick up for himself or jail him to push the gun control agenda?
        The proof of the cover-up are endless: e.g. Why were the FBI there before the police who are 5 minutes away from the school?
