Obama policies to end ‘schoolhouse-to-jailhouse pipeline’ helped keep Nikolas Cruz off police radar

Obama sad
Confessed shooter Nikolas Cruz was a disciplinary nightmare for schools before he opened fire in Parkland, Florida — yet there was nothing on his record to stop him from buying a firearm or alarm the FBI after the agency received a tip.

Why not?

The demand for an answer to that question has focused attention on Broward County Public Schools policies embraced by the Obama administration that were designed to help rule-breaking students avoid permanent blots on their records by reducing referrals to law enforcement.

Under Superintendent Robert W. Runcie, who worked for Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan in the Chicago Public Schools, school-based arrests dropped by 63 percent from 2012 to 2016 after he implemented policies designed to derail the “schoolhouse-to-jailhouse pipeline.”

But the approach also helped keep Cruz off the law-enforcement radar, despite school-based offenses that reportedly included assault, threats and bringing bullets to school in his backpack.

    Keeping criminals out of jail and out of “the system” is the way DemocratS keep their voting block. Look at Terry McAwful in VA. As Governor he gave a blanket restoration of voting right to convicted felons just before the last election to help his mentor, Hillary Clinton. The State Legislature stopped it at first, as State law says it has to be on a case by case basis, yet he tried to do it anyway and got some in place before the election. Why else would they be so anti-Police and pro-criminal?

      Actually, the democrat party ceased to exist and is now the Socialist party and working against this country! Check out the avowed communists in Congress as list ed as members of the DSA! Who do they represent now? Remember, these are the people who turned Obama loose on us! The most anti-American, Anti-Constitutional individual ever to squat in the White House! AND HE CONTINUES TO BE SO!

    OF COURSE OUR PAST MUSLIM PRESIDENT DID EVERYTHING THAT HE COULD TO DESTROY AMERICA. THEIR IS NO DOUBT WHY HE DID NOT GO TO BILLY GRAHMS FUNERAL, NOW IF IT HAD BEEN LOUIS FARKAN A KNOWN MUSLIM, HE WOULD BE THERE.

    THANK GOD THAT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT IS OF GOD AND IS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY LIKE IT SHOULD BE, I ONLY WISH HE WOULD REALLY PUT THE HAMMER DOWN AND VETO EVERYTHING GOING TO THE RINOS STATES, BOTH REP. AND DEM. WE NOW HAVE A STRONG THIRD PARTY, THE AMERICAN PARTY MADE UP OF THE SILENT MAJORITY.
