So police were called out to visit with Florida “Valentine’s Day” shooter-to-be Nikolas de Jesus Cruz THIRTY-NINE TIMES over the past seven years, for “mentally ill, domestic violence, assault, threats, Peeping Tom, shooting animals . . .” yet (as Loyal Correspondent Bear points out) neither cops nor school officials ever made use of the Florida […]
