Total Media Blackout on Muslim Terrorist Attack in Florida

Image result for breaking news alert

Did you know there was what appears to be a terrorist attack carried out by a radicalized Muslim women in Florida last week?

If not, that’s because the mainstream media has been all but ignoring it.

It’s the typical “head-in-the-sand” approach of liberals who think this problem will simply disappear if we pretend it doesn’t exist.

But it’s real, and it’s happening all the time.

In this particular incident, a Florida woman intentionally rammed her car into a local police station in Florida.

It was later discovered that the woman, one Lasandra Johnson, is a Muslim convert with ties to radical mosques.

Florida Just Made Anti-America Delta Air Lines Regret EVERYTHING After Massive Move They Made

Delta Air Lines is falling faster than a sack of bricks dropped from a Boeing 757. The popular airline just got smacked with another round of karma after what they did to punish the members of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Delta previously had a relationship with the NRA that provided small discounts for members of the NRA. Delta later removed the partnership and took away the discounts because of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The shooting had nothing to do with the NRA, its members, or Delta Air Lines. However, Delta decided to cut ties with the civil rights group, and that sparked a much more prominent controversy than expected.

Delta Air Lines later suffered a devastating multimillion-dollar loss when the state of Georgia passed a bill that ended Delta’s tax breaks that made it to the jet fuel costs a little bit less. Georgia’s move was a punishment to Delta in revenge of Delta punishing the NRA members who were just minding their own business when a random young male shot up a high school in Florida.

The state of Florida is joining the bandwagon of punishment, and they’re about to cut the cord on Delta Air Line’s tax breaks too. This will cost Delta probably hundreds of millions as they’ll now be required to make up the differences when they lose the tax breaks. This will likely cause Delta to push the cost over to the consumer, punishing more people for the actions of their own fault. This will ten likely cause consumers to fly on other airlines, cutting their business with Delta, and Delta being placed in a dire situation where they need to sell plane tickets to remain in business, or they need to close. If the American boycott and shift to other airlines are strong enough, then Delta will be in a very devastating position. Only 13 people had ever used the Delta/NRA discount. All of this loss comes as a publicity stunt and the fact that barely anyone knew, or used, the NRA discount with Delta.

The Western Journal provided more information on Delta’s tax break being removed:

“Florida lawmakers are following Georgia’s lead in punishing Delta Air Lines for cutting ties with the National Rifle Association.

At the end of last month, Georgia passed a bill that ended tax reductions on jet fuel that would benefit the airliner, and now Florida is planning to do the same, Independent Journal Review reported.

The state’s lawmakers will also rebid a state rental car contract held by Enterprise who also cut tied with the NRA.

“We would do this to any company that wants to engage against political speech, whether it’s against the NRA or Planned Parenthood,” Rep. Blaise Ingoglia said to Politico.

He added, “Anyone can engage in political speech, but we have a duty to watch and make sure government money doesn’t underwrite it.”

NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer supported the lawmakers’ actions, though she was not involved in the negotiations.

“Taxpayer dollars shouldn’t be used to benefit businesses who discriminate against a segment of the taxpayers,” she said.

The fuel tax was discussed on Florida’s house floor last Friday led by House Speaker Richard Corcoran.

The amendment to the chamber’s $400 million tax package takes away “a proposal to lower the tax airlines pay for gas from 4.2 to 2.8 cent per gallon. The provision is worth roughly $20 million annually,” according to Politico.

The provision against Enterprise was put in the House budget document plan and would give the Department of Management Services $20,000 to “competitively procure rental vehicle services.”

Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Air Lines, previously stated that they ended the discount in hopes to remain neutral regarding gun control debates, but he sees how that backfired. Most people didn’t know that Delta had a discount for NRA members. It does not seem to have been advertised as an option and, as mentioned earlier, only 13 people had ever used it.

Some Democrats in Florida expressed their distaste for the Floridian lawmakers to punish Delta Air Lines by removing their tax breaks. The Democrats had no problem calling the lawmakers names or phrases for punishing Delta, but failed to see their own hypocrisy when Delta punished their customers.

One such person was attorney Sean Shaw who posted a Tweet but failed to see how he was lambasting one side for something they had done, while the other side had basically done the same thing.

Delta punished people and was then punished by others. It’s mostly the same thing. The fascinating aspect is that neither Delta Air Lines, the NRA, nor the customers had anything to do with the Florida high school shooting – but there they are, all fighting about something that no one was involved in.

Perhaps they should get back to business and realize they are all not each others problems.

Florida Man Accused of Killing Pregnant Wife Then Taking Photos of Her Naked, Dead Body

A Florida man has been arrested and accused of murdering his pregnant wife then taking gruesome photos of her naked, dead body.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Department arrested 47-year-old Vincent Terry and charged him with murdering his wife, Chrystal Terry, 41, who was 20 weeks pregnant, the New York Post reported.

The Sheriff’s office reported that Chrystal Terry had not been seen since December 21. The suspect reportedly told officials that his wife left home at 9:30 PM on the 21st leaving behind all her personal belongings — including her cell phone, medication, and purse.

Terry then said that his missing wife texted a friend saying, “Will u plz come pick me up. 911.” A second text reportedly read, “I’ll do anything. I need u plz.”

But when police became involved, shocking photos of the woman’s dead body were discovered on the suspect’s phone.

Police report that the woman “appeared to be deceased” in the photos and was seen naked and bloodied. The photos showed severe facial trauma and a gunshot wound to the abdomen, police said.

Forensics experts noted that the floors in the couple’s home had been cleaned with bleach but the team still found some tiny blood spattering on a living room wall. However, the missing woman’s body has not yet been found.

Several firearms were recovered from the home, and police pointed out that as a convicted felon, Terry is not allowed to own firearms.

Records show that Terry was arrested in Colorado on suspicion of attempting to kill his wife, but the charges were dropped when Chrystal refused to press charges.

Based on the evidence found by the forensics team and the photos on his cell phone, police charged Terry with a series of counts including second-degree murder. He is being held without bail at the Marion County jail.


Florida Highway Patrol officer caught on video racing against Lamborghini

Image result for Florida Highway Patrol officer caught on video racing against Lamborghini

A Florida Highway Patrol officer is in hot water after video showing him apparently racing a Lamborghini Aventador with his police car hit Instagram this week.

The clip was posted on Monday to #JustLivinIt, an account run by the CEO of Arivo, a luxury car livery service that operates in New York. The timeline is full of images of Lamborghinis, and also a life lesson from Will Smith.

According to WINK news, the video was recorded three years ago. It’s since been deleted, but remains on WINK’s website.

Shot from the inside of a second Aventador, it shows the Dodge Charger patrol car and the Italian supercar with New York tags cruising along next to each other before the drivers hit their accelerators and pull away. The Lamborghini predictably leaves the Dodge in the dust.

The exact location of the race has not been revealed, but the FHP knows who the trooper is and is considering if disciplinary action is necessary.

FHP spokesman Lt. Thomas Pikul issued the following statement on the matter to Fox News:

“Troopers are expected to act professionally and inspire confidence and trust in those they serve. The Florida Highway Patrol has opened an immediate investigation regarding the incident. The trooper in question will be held accountable upon any finding of misconduct.”

Citing an ongoing investigation, Lt. Pikul would not say if the Lamborghini driver is cooperating with the investigation, or potentially facing any charges stemming from the race.


Second Florida University Allows Staff to Carry Firearms on Campus

Image result for Second Florida University Allows Staff to Carry Firearms on Campus

Amid all the liberal and MSM narrative for gun control, Webber International University recently became the second college in Florida to sign up for a program that allows trained staff members to carry firearms on campus.

The “Sentinel Program,” offered through the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, provides comprehensive training to volunteer participants and authorizes them to serve as “special deputies” in the event of an active assailant incident on campus.

Two Florida universities have now joined a voluntary program that would make it possible for trained staff to carry firearms on campus.

According to FOX 13, Webber International University announced its partnership with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office last week, a move that would expand the experimental Sentinel Program that was first implemented in the summer of 2017.

“We’re gonna send the message to those people that you’re not coming onto a campus being the only person on the campus with a firearm.”   

The latest move makes Webber only the second school in Florida to implement the program after Southeastern University announced its participation in the police initiative last year.

According to the project’s description, those who wish to participate in the Sentinel Program “will be given 100 hours of comprehensive firearm safety and proficiency training for the purpose of providing security on campus during an active assailant incident.”

Since Florida does not allow anyone to carry firearms on campus with the exception of law enforcement officials, the participants will be given a rank of volunteer “Special Deputies,” and will have “no authority to act in any law enforcement capacity outside of an active assailant incident on campus.”

“We’re gonna send the message to those people that you’re not coming onto a campus being the only person on the campus with a firearm,” said Sheriff Grady Judd, as reported by FOX 13. “Gun control is clearly in place on school campuses in the state of Florida. How did that work last week in Broward County?”

The project’s description page further notes that the 100-hour firearm training threshold provides “25 percent more instruction than the standard that is required for certified law enforcement officers,” adding that participants “will also be required to complete 32 hours of deadly force training.”

“Everyone just has to ask themselves that question: My babies, your babies, are in that classroom and that active shooter is coming down the hallway with that thousand-yard stare and that gun in their hand,” Sheriff Judd remarked. “Do you want somebody to step out and stop him? Or do you want him to go into that classroom and slaughter your babies? That’s where we are with this today.”

Southeastern University President Dr. Kent Ingle earlier in February told the station that the program “allows highly trained faculty and staff to be stationed literally all over the campus.”

“They are carrying for the sole purpose, can engage an active shooter should he or she come on campus and try to create destruction,” Ingle added.

However, Gov. Scott of Florida disagrees with Sheriff Judd’s views.

On Monday, President Donald Trump held a meeting with the nation’s governors on how to address school shootings.

During the 75-minute event, Trump called on Florida Gov. Rick Scott to outline the steps he is taking to respond to the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland.

Gov. Scott said he plans to increase funding to protect schools and to tighten gun restrictions on those with mental health issues.

However, remember Scott is running for senate in Florida. He needs the votes in 2018.

“I have $500 million expectations out of my legislature. I’ve been talking to them all weekend. I’m going to focus every day on making sure we get that money and we get the law enforcement and we get the mental health counselors. We’re going to do the right things in our state,” Scott told Local 10 News White House Correspondent Ross Palombo after the meeting.

Gov. Scott told Palombo that he does not agree with the president’s suggestion to arm teachers.

“I believe we ought to make sure we have law enforcement presence, we make sure they’re trained,” Gov. Scott said. “I want to make sure that all our budgets go through our sheriff’s departments to make sure that they know how the money is going to be spent, because they’re responsible for our law enforcement.”

Gov. Scott said there are some states where teachers are already armed, but he said he wants to put the focus in Florida on strengthening law enforcement.

BIG MISTAKE if you ask me!

Let’s review shall we?

The FBI knew about Parkland, Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz.

The Broward County Sheriffs knew about the Parkland, Florida shooter as well.

The Coral Springs Police Department knew about Nikolas Cruz.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School administrators knew about Nikolas Cruz.

The teachers and students knew about Nikolas Cruz. In fact many personnel and students at the school relayed their concern to all the levels of authority, but where did that get them?

The Broward County Sheriff’s Deputies and Broward County School – sat and did nothing! In fact, they even ordered others who wanted to help, such as first responders to NOT enter the building.

WHAT THE HECK! Can you imagine if that were your kid? These kids were lying on a hallway floor or in a classroom bleeding to death, because some stupid administrators and county officials that you pay for DIDN’T do their job! Or as we now know, were cowards and stayed in the cars until the real shooter left the building and some idiot level administrator yelled “all clear”. How many of these young kids’ lives could have been saved by first responders? Since when does a first responder stay OUT OF A BUILDING and NOT save lives?

Just think of all the people who would have died in New York in the Twin Towers on 911, if first responders were told to stay out of the buildings.


First, do you seriously think hiring more law enforcement officers with guns would have stopped this shooting in Parkland, Florida?

There were plenty of officers that arrived – they just didn’t have the guts to go in and face a teenage shooter. They were told to NOT go in.

Second, would more money thrown at mental health have stopped Nikolas Cruz?

Nikolas Cruz had a mental problem. He saw mental counselors for help. He stopped going. Did anyone follow up? Did anyone report that he stopped going?Throwing more money at the problem will NOT stop a mentally deranged criminal from getting a gun. Do you think criminals care about how they get their guns?

You can change the laws all you want, but criminals are criminals. They don’t follow laws.

Finally, The gun-free zone sign is like a bright flashing neon welcome sign for criminals. There is no one on campus to stop them and they KNOW it!

If a criminal sees two schools with two signs – one that says ‘gun-free zone’ and one that says ‘teachers armed’ – which school do you think the criminal is going to go to?

Gov. Scott is playing politics with gun control and votes. He’s hoping that way more Democrats will vote for him for Senator in 2018.

Hey Gov. Scott – No guts. No glory.

It’s time to man up! Put your big boy pants on and do the right thing! Let local school boards decide if they want a program in their schools like the Sentinel program.

Elder Patriot – CNN claimed they were broadcasting a town hall event from Sunrise Florida, near the site of Nikolas Cruz’s shooting rampage that left 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and teachers dead. 

It turned into an event staged by the fascists at CNN that was little more than a forum for the testosterone-deprived Nazi youth that have decided our Constitution no longer has merit and that by throwing a tantrum serious adults will buckle on their core beliefs – like their mommies and daddies have always done.

Are there laws that could be implemented to tighten some loopholes in our gun laws?  Of course there are but these brats weren’t interested in anything but getting their way.

And CNN made sure theirs’ were the only voices heard.

Earlier we recounted the story of MSD HS football player Brandon Minoff whose free voice wasn’t welcomed at the CNN event. 


When given Minoff was given a voice by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, he said:

“I think it’s the media.  They exploit everything to make it political. They’re more concerned about gun control at this moment rather than the fact that there were 17 people that were killed.”

“If coach Feis would have had a gun or any of the other security guards would have had a gun it definitely would have been less fatal.   “[The shooter] and coach Feis were face-to-face and he just shielded kids instead of having the ability to kill the shooter.

Now another young survivor, Colton Haab, has accused CNN of silencing him, as well.

“I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.”

“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted.  I don’t think that it’s going to get anything accomplished, it’s not going to ask the true questions that the parents, teachers, and students have.”

During the rampage, Colton a Junior ROTC trainee, refused to be a victim and fell back on his training to usher 60-70 fellow students to shelter in a classroom that was used for ROTC training.  He picked up the story from there:

“We took those sheets, and we put them in front of everybody so they weren’t seen, because they were behind a solid object and the Kevlar would slow the bullet down.  I didn’t think it was going to stop it, but it would definitely slow it down to make it from a catastrophic to a lifesaving thing.”

Haab said that he and a friend decided that they would be the last line of defense in the event the shooter stormed the classroom.

“I didn’t think it was going to stop it, but it would definitely slow it down to make it from a catastrophic to a lifesaving thing.”

What makes CNN’s censorship of Haab so telling is that the story of his heroic action while the shooting was taking place is taken from a CNN report that was filed shortly after the rampage ended.

CNN didn’t want a town hall.  They weren’t looking for solutions.  And, they certainly didn’t want debate.  They wanted victims who turn to government to solve all of their problems.  CNN sought to stage an attack on our Second Amendment and they had recruited high school student to “man” this rally.

And, the fascists at CNN gave free rein to the suddenly empowered Hitler Youth.

It got so bad that NRA representative Dana Loesch – herself a survivor – needed a security detail to exit the “town hall” event.

In an appearance at CPAC Loesch recounted the harrowing incident:


“I want to make this super obvious point.  The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people.”

“I had to have a security detail to get out.  I wouldn’t be able to exit that if I didn’t have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive.”

“The government can’t keep you safe and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that’s already failed us numerous times to keep us safe. And then they also call Trump a tyrant but they say they want the president to also confiscate our firearms? Try to figure that one out.” 

CNN stopped reporting real news a long time ago.  They are now cheerleaders for the most extreme leftist policies courtesy of Moscow.


Florida Shooting Survivor Blows The Whistle: Liberal Media Is Exploiting Shooting to Push Their Agenda

Not every kid from the Florida school beset by a mass shooting last week has become a crusader against our Second Amendment rights. Indeed, one student is attacking the media for politicizing the crime and for turning his fellow students into anti-gun activists all the while ignoring the kids who lost their lives in the attacks.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Brandon Minoff is disgusted by the way the media is treating the whole story. He is sick that the story has become about the actions of the anti-gun activists instead of about the victims who are being laid to rest.

Minoff told Daily Wire that he is distraught over the situation:

Brandon Minoff, who previously appeared on MSNBC and CNN to discuss the shooting, told The Daily Wire on Sunday that he thinks the media is using the shooting as an opportunity to push for gun control more than they are reporting the facts as neutral observers.

“I think it’s the media,” Minoff said, referring to whom he believes is promoting the gun control narrative in response to the shooting. “They exploit everything to make it political. They’re more concerned about gun control at this moment rather than the fact that there were 17 people that were killed.”

Minoff, who hopes to meet President Donald Trump to discuss the issue, said that he thinks there should be limits and restrictions on guns but is upset to see how the media is covering the tragedy.

“It pains me to see that knowing that 17 of my classmates are dead and they just want to talk about gun control,” he continued. “Students have opinions, they say stuff that they’re against guns, and that gun control is necessary, but they’re making it bigger than it needs to be at this moment.”

Minoff also said that he doesn’t really think that gun bans are effective and noted that the law says you can’t drink until you are 21, but kids still get drunk.

The 18-year-old student also says that school security guards should be armed.

“If coach Feis would have had a gun or any of the other security guards would have had a gun it definitely would have been less fatal,” the high school senior said. “[The shooter] and coach Feis were face-to-face and he just shielded kids instead of having the ability to kill the shooter.


Jim Carrey Posts SICK & Graphic Picture of Dead Florida Victims Next to Trump, Sends to Survivor

Kirsters Baish| After last week’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, survivors have started a campaign to get politicians to reform our country’s gun laws. Then we have ultra liberal anti-Trump actor and comedian Jim Carrey who decided it was appropriate to respond to one of the survivors of the shooting (Cameron Kasky) by sending him a graphic image of President Trump golfing over the dead bodies of those murdered by Nikolas Cruz.

This time Carrey seriously crossed the line.

Gateway Pundit reported:

Actor-comedian Jim Carrey created an anti-Trump work of ‘art’ showing bloody bodies of dead students killed in the Parkland, Florida, school massacre and tweeted it to a teen student survivor of the attack.

The image shows President Donald Trump in silhouette on a golf course before a fairway littered with bloody bodies of children. Trump is shown yelling, “What’s wrong with these kids? Didn’t they hear me yell, FORE!”

The comedian sent the message to a student who survived the horrific attack. Activist Cameron Kasky received this message, “It’s President’s Day and Chief Little Hands has been busy tweeting from his golf resort, a chip shot away from the latest bloody school shooting. He was hoping to play a few holes while grieving families are busy digging them. I support @cameron_kasky #neveragain”

Kasky’s response:

Carrey has made the claim that President trump is pushing our country toward “suffering beyond all imagination.”

Breitbart reported that Jim Carrey had warned President Donald Trump constantly insisting on “alienating the world” would push our country into serious agony at some point. On Saturday, Carrey took to Twitter to reference an Emergency Alert System message that was sent to residents in Hawaii which warned them to “seek immediate shelter” from a “ballistic missile threat.” He wrote, “I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live.”

Carrey went on to blame Trump saying, “It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination. ;^\”

The washed up actor/comedian also defended comedian Kathy Griffin after her horrific stunt last year. She felt that it was appropriate to walk around holding a prop that resembled the severed bloody head of our Commander in Chief.

Variety reported:

Jim Carrey had an added challenge for Kathy Griffin in the wake of her controversial photo shoot where she posed with a severed fake head resembling President Donald Trump.

“Kathy Griffin, hold up a severed leg as well,” the comedian said at the premiere of his new Showtime dramedy “I’m Dying Up Here” on Wednesday night.

Adding, “I don’t know if it’s funny, but I don’t think the joke is the problem.”

Carrey argued that Griffin didn’t cross the line — because he said there is no line to cross.

Carrey explained to Entertainment Tonight at the premiere, “It’s the job of the comedian to cross the line at all times. That line is not real and if you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing, we’re the last line of defense. The comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. It’s impossible to get away from it.”

Carrey admitted that he had his own sick fantasy involving President Trump, but never acted on it. He explained, “I had a dream the other night that I was playing golf with Donald Trump. I was standing beside him with a club in my hand and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up. It was one of those dreams where you want to go back to sleep so you can finish it, you know? But I’ve taken up golf anyway.”

Jim Carrey has seriously taken it too far, and it’s time for him to pack it in and retire from comedy for good, because there is nothing funny about threatening people.


U.S. Army Awards ‘Heroism Medals’ to 3 JROTC Students Killed in Florida High School Shooting

Alaina Petty, Peter Wang, Martin Duque

The U.S. Army is honoring three Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets killed in the Florida high school shooting Wednesday with medals for heroism.

The U.S. Army announced Tuesday that Alaina Petty, Martin Duque, and Peter Wang—who were all students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and also served as cadets in the school’s JROTC program—would receive JROTC Heroism Medals for their acts of bravery during Wednesday’s shooting.

Army spokesman Michael Maddox said that Petty’s family had been presented with the award at her funeral Monday, and Wang’s family received the award during his funeral service Tuesday. Duque’s family will accept the medal at his funeral service Saturday.

More than 1,500 people attended Petty’s funeral service Monday.

Wang’s family requested that he be laid to rest in his JROTC uniform at his funeral service Tuesday, according to an Army spokesperson. The 15-year-old was in his uniform when he was shot trying to help his classmates.

“The JROTC Heroism medal will be on his uniform, but a second ‘keepsake’ medal,” will be given to the Wang family, Maddox said.

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point gave the late cadet a posthumous offer of admission, although many people have called for the U.S. military to give Wang a military funeral. A petition posted to urged the U.S. military to give Wang a full military funeral with honors.

Maddox added that awards for other cadets are going through the review process, but that the Army’s focus is “supporting the funerals and dignity and honor so deserved by these cadets and their families.”

The Medal of Heroism is a U.S. military decoration awarded to JROTC cadets whose actions “involved the acceptance of danger and extraordinary responsibilities, exemplifying praiseworthy fortitude and courage,” according to the Army.

Nikolas Cruz, an ex-JROTC member, is accused of killing the three cadets when he opened fire at the school Wednesday. Seventeen people died in the shooting.


BREAKING NOW: Florida Shooter’s Brother Taken Into Custody

And the plot thickens! We are now getting reports that the younger brother of the Parkland Valentine’s day high school shooter Nikolas Cruz was committed to a mental Institution.

Local area media are saying authorities have removed someone Friday afternoon from the home of Rocxanne Deschamps. Who is said to be a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers and took them in after their adoptive mother died of pneumonia in November of 2017,

Under the Baker Act, you can have anyone held against their will for up to 12 hours for a psychiatric exam. It’s not clear at this point in time if he was released or not.

Via The New York Post:

The younger brother of deranged school shooter Nikolas Cruz was committed to a mental health facility, according to reports.

Authorities removed someone Friday from the home of Rocxanne Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers who took them in after their adoptive mother died of pneumonia in November, The Palm Beach Post reported.

A friend of Deschamps confirmed Zachary Cruz, who turns 18 next week, was the person removed from the home.

The younger Cruz brother was involuntarily committed under Florida’s Baker Act, under which he can be held involuntarily for up to 12 hours for an involuntary psychiatric exam. It’s unclear if he’s been released.

Nikolas Cruz left Deschamps’ Lantana, FL mobile home around Thanksgiving after he and Deschamps squared off over a gun.

“He bought a gun and wanted to bring it into my house,” she said in comments that have since been wiped from her Facebook page, the paper reported.

Florida Baker Act Explained:

The Florida Mental Health Act of 1971, also referred to as the Florida Baker Act, is a Florida statute found under Chapter 394 that allows for the involuntary examination though of an individual through involuntary or emergency commitment. The Florida Baker act was named after a Maxine Baker, a state representative, who had a very strong interest and much involvement in mental health issues, and served as House Committee on mental health’s chair. She was also the sponsor of the Florida Baker Act.

The nickname of the legislation, Baker act, has led to the phrase “Baker Act” being used as a transitive verb, and the phrase “Baker Acted” being used as a passive-voice verb, in order to invoke the Florida Baker Act to force the commitment on an individual. Although the Baker Act Florida is only a statute for Florida, the use of the term “Baker Acting” has become very prevalent as a slang term in other parts of the United States for involuntary commitment.

Initiating the Florida Baker Act

The Florida Baker Act can be initiated by law enforcement officials, court judges, mental health professionals, or physicians. In order for any of these officials to enact the Baker Act Florida, there must be substantial evidence that an individual has a mental illness as explained in the Baker act, or there is intent to harm oneself, others, or be self-neglectful as described in the Baker act. These examinations can occur in over 115 different designated receiving facilities under the Florida Baker act.

There are many different possible outcomes after an examination of the patient under the Baker Act Florida. Some of the possible conclusions include releasing the individual into the community or some form of community placement, petitioning for civil commitment or involuntary inpatient placement (which must result in a hearing within 5 days), requesting assisted treatment orders or involuntary outpatient placement or outpatient commitment, or having the competent individual consent to voluntary treatment. The option of involuntary outpatient placement was added in the Florida Baker Act 2005.

Admission under the Florida Baker Act

A voluntary admission under the Florida Baker Act happens when a person who is 18 years or older, or a guardian or parent of a minor, applies for the individual’s admission to a facility for observation, treatment, or diagnosis.

An involuntary admission under the Florida Baker Act happens after a court finds that either an individual is mentally ill resulting in him or her refusing voluntary placement for medical treatment or if the individual cannot determine by him or herself whether placement is necessary. An involuntary admission can also occur under the Baker Act Florida if the individual is not capable of living either alone or with help, and going without treatment will most likely result suffering due to the refusal to care or neglect or self-infliction of bodily harm as shown by evidence of his or her recent behavior. Lastly, if there are no other appropriate treatment alternatives that are less restrictive, the Baker law allows for involuntary treatment.

In a later interview, Chad Bennett, a family friend of the Deschamps, confirmed Deschamp and Nicholas Cruz had a falling out when she didn’t want the gun Cruz bought inside a home which she owned. She then gave him an ultimatum and Cruz took the gun and left. Although it’s not known if the gun he had bought is the same one which he used to kill those 17 innocent people.

Not that it would have made much of a difference since the FBI was so busy trying to overthrow President Trump to actually do its job, but why didn’t Deschamps notify the authorities that there was a deranged individual packing an AR-15 who decided to be homeless rather than giving up his firearm? Who knows, maybe one more report would have made a difference and the FBI would have taken a break from working for the Democrat Party and actually done their jobs, which is to protect the US Citizen.

This all was a screw up of epic proportions. Let’s hope that at least something good is able to come out of it and maybe the FBI is replaced by an organization which is non-partisan and actually does the job us taxpayers pay it to do. Don’t you agree?
