I know the shooter. (tense music) I was on the bus with the shooter. I know his bus stop. (echoing thumping) In sixth grade he screamed racial slurs at my Chinese friend at lunch. He was saying offensive, and rude, and annoying things in class, and a kid got up and punched him in the face. I don't want anyone to think that this is because he's mentally unstable. I'm pretty darn sure (whooshing) that he's just a sociopath that cannot be charged (whooshing) as an insanity plea. On Valentine's Day 2018, 19 year old Nikolas Cruz allegedly entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, the school he had been expelled from, and allegedly opened fire, killing 17 students and faculty. Thank you. With an AR-15 that he legally purchased. In the days that followed, many who spoke of Cruz said he was a troubled outcast and it was no surprise that he carried out this heinous act. Now, I've talked about the fact that sometimes these individuals will present different personas to different peoples in different situations. And people will always say "Who does this kinda thing?" And believe me, the FBI, the Secret Service, state and local officials have all done profiles on these individuals, and you hear a lot that these are kids that are loners, that they're marginalized, that they've been bullied, that they're picked on.
