A Wall Street Journal story says the FBI failed to follow up on a tip that Nikolas Cruz was a dangerous threat to others.

On Jan. 5, the FBI received a call on a tip line from a person close to Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old charged in this week’s shooting, the bureau said in a statement on Friday. The caller provided information on “Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior and disturbing social-media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting,” the FBI said.

The FBI said the information should have been assessed as a possible “threat to life” but “no further investigation was conducted.”

BuzzFeed reports that last September a Mississippi bail bondsman named Ben Bennight tipped the FBI to a disturbing YouTube post by a Nikolas Cruz. The post said “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” The FBI followed up with a visit to Bennight’s office but he had no further information. At a press conference after the shooting the Bureau said it “could not uncover any details from the account.”

Florida Governor Rick Scott called for FBI Director Christopher Ray to step down.

    Apparently the FBI was too busy investigating alleged recruiting violations in college basketball to pursue dangerous criminal threats. Maybe senior FBI officials lost money in last year’s NCAA tournament pool.

      Maybe the FBI would have been more interested in Nikolas Cruz if the FBI wasn’t so busy looking for ways to frame DJT and to pin the big Las Vegas shooting on people feared and loathed by the Democrats.

    Comey was the head of the FBI; does that tell you anything? Those morons are clueless and have lost every thread of credibility. About the only thing they investigate closely are coffee, doughnuts and their annual leave balance.
