Deputies in Florida were called to Nikolas Kruz’s home, not just one time, not two times, not even 10 times … 39 TIMES since 2010. If you do basic math this tells you on average they were at his home roughly five times a year, or EVERY OTHER MONTH since 2010.
Talk about a system FAIL:

Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the family home of shooter Nikolas Cruz 39 times since 2010, according to documents obtained by CNN — but it’s not immediately clear which calls, if any, involved Cruz.
Cruz confessed to police that he was the gunman, according to a probable cause affidavit. His public defender described him as a “broken human being” who is coming to grips with the pain he has caused.
Cruz purchased the firearm used in the shooting, an AR-15 style rifle, legally in Florida nearly a year ago, according to Peter J. Forcelli, special agent in charge of the Miami division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
And they never once arrested him? There were no red flags about this kid?
FBI couldn’t find him though.

They weren’t sure what his name really was, or something.
His social media posting were basically a plea for someone to intercede.

This is where the outrage should be directed.

This is a huge issue.
When we originally read that Kruz had his firearm legally we were honestly shocked, but a BC doesn’t pick up on anything unless the person in question has some sort of criminal record. You’d think in eight years going to Kruz’s home they’d have arrested him for SOMETHING along the way, he’s been adult for nearly two years.
But sure, blame the NRA.
