    Cruz was adopted, along with his younger brother Zachary, by Lynda and Roger Cruz after the couple moved from Long Island, N.Y., to Broward County.

    Cruz was described by former classmates as “weird,” “a little off,” and a “loner.” He had been expelled from the high school for “disciplinary reasons” and was also told he couldn’t bring a backpack on campus. School officials said he had been attending another school in Broward County after his expulsion.

    Lynda, who died of pneumonia, adopted Nikolas the day he was born.

    Malcolm and Christine Roxburgh were neighbors of the Cruz family for many years.

    “It was a wonderful idea. Two older people to have two little boys to look after. They were just kind people.”

    He used to get into trouble and harass neighbors, the Roxburghs said. The police came to Cruz’s house many times, they said.

    “He didn’t like the pigs and didn’t like the neighbors so he sent over his dog over there to try to attack them,” Malcolm said. (A neighbor across the street kept little pigs as pets.)

    Christine, Mrs. Roxburgh, said one time she saw Nikolas peeking in her window.

    Christine said when the boy didn’t want to go to school, he would bang his head against a cement wall.

    Was Nickolas Cruz and his 'brother' the only children in that neighborhood?

    “I said what are you doing here? He said he was looking for golf balls. I said ‘this isn’t the golf course,’” Christine said.

    A similar person with similar neighborhood 'quirks' is Omar Mateen. Although he grew up in Port St. Lucie, Florida, sources say that when he entered into the first year of his grade school, he could barely speak English.

    Where were/are the neighborhood 'children'?

    Children, often times, meet the other kids on their blocks or near to their home.

    Another question is: how far was their elementary school from their home? And how did they get there and how did they return home? Did they have a spare of the house key(s) to be able to enter back into the home after school?

    If Nickolas' dad passed away when he was young, he was being raised by a mother, a single mother parenting home.


    Just as Omar Mateen was of 'Afghanistan' heritage, Nickolas Cruz, being adopted by the Cruz 'couple', adopted their surname, Cruz. But looking at his picture above, he wouldn't really pass as a Cruz but maybe more of a Eastern European heritage.

    Each country and region has their own preferences and choices of illicit drugs. Associating self with a certain regional or locational group of peers will often times have that person become more 'indoctrinated' to that region's 'drug of choice'.

    And many times, using the same 'illicit drugs' while associating with the 'locals' of those particular regions will have the mind lean and geared towards the same mind frame and mind set. If I was using 'marijuana' in South Beach, Miami, I would be more of a South Beach Miami minded marijuana user than a San Francisco California marijuana user.

    But seeing that I might not have too many 'friends' around my home, I might seek friendships and dialogue and communication via internet with others of like mind and like interests. Getting 'high' with other citizens in other Countries using social media and video conferencing software and applications, would be like having an 'external' circle of friends which I might prefer to associate with over the peers in my home neighborhood or school. I might prefer to be on the computer with 'my computer friends' after school more than I might want to spend time with my 'school friends'. And doing this can lead me to learn alot more of what life is like in the places I am having a dialogue with over the 'internet' and gain their 'mentalities' of how life can be seen as from a completely 'different' point of view than the normal daily routine mentality of living in a certain zip code.

    Mike Watford, who graduated from the high school in 2016, told BuzzFeed News that "something definitely pushed [the suspect]" before he allegedly opened fire at the school on Wednesday.

    Cruz, according to Watford, often said "how tired he was of everyone picking on him and the staff doing nothing about it.

    --

    "He started going after one of my friends, threatening her, and I cut him off from there," Mutchler said. "I think everyone had in their minds if anybody was going to do it, it was going to be him.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/1...ths-leading-up-to-shooting-attorney-says.html


    So Nickolas Cruz could have been an isolated, foreign born, out of place feeling, individual who sought friendships through computer dialogues and from these computer dialogues ideas of murder, mayhem, disorderly conduct and other trouble causing behaviors might have been accepted as what the 'cool' thing was in those places he was having computer dialogues with. Maybe there are some parts of the world that it is cool to be the school 'shooter'. Maybe there are parts of the world where it is cool to be known and make a stand using firearms. And having more and more dialogue with these places can indoctrinate a person into their ways of thinking, such as 'grooming', if it is being done deliberately or not.


    I.si.l recruiting through computer dialogues is an example of how terrorism can be spoken of as worthwhile and possibly even 'glamorous' in a certain way. To stand up for a 'worthy cause', although it may not be, and be 'celebrated' as a certain kind of hero, can be glamorizing.

    I personally do not have any knowledge or figures off hand, but how many 'recruits' do they get from within their own Country verses from 'foreign' countries?

    Being a member of i.s.I.l may not be as 'glamorous' among their own and within their own Countries as it might be to unknowing 'foreigners'.

    Do i.s.I.l not have any 'fear' to the local authorities within the places they inhabit when not in i.s.I.l gear and/or uniform?

    Many might have double 'standard' lives. Many might be living a double life.

    Many might 'retreat' back into their family homes after a day of being in i.s.I.l gear and/or uniform while all the while keeping their involvement with i.s.I.l secret and hidden from the very own family members they sleep and eat in the same home with.

    Their life with i.s.I.l can't really be one of a true 'agenda' seeing that they might be living and eating and having their 'normal' lives with those members that are the law abiders in those places. And if not a true agenda, then it might only be a 'game' which is like a sexual fetish for others. An addiction of sorts.

    Why would any citizen want to do this to their fellow classmate or neighbor or human being, if it is NOT fun or interesting to/for them?

    What Finger Do You Use To Have Fun?


    'microphone'? accomplices? video shooter? passerbys? All not offering any kind of 'help' to these females being victimized while being filmed and recorded? other males passing by, other members of the same school, neighborhood and same language speakers not offering any kind of righteous assistance?

    It's either that noone intervened for righteous reasons or this whole video was a staged video and all the members in it were only 'actors' and volunteers to be in the video.

    These are college tuition paying students who are having their 'personal' rights infringed upon.

    At first I said someone is either drunk or is trolling to start this thread on the PF Military Forum then I saw it was posted under the terrorism sub forum.

    For the shooting at the parkland high school to be terrorism it has to be a political motive.

    With in hours the Democrats made it political.

    This is neither terrorism, nor is it military related. Why is it here?
