Default FBI failed to follow up on Florida shooting suspect tip in January

It's obvious why the FBI didn't investigate Cruz...He's not Russian...

FBI failed to follow up on Florida shooting suspect tip in January



Quote:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledged on Friday that some “protocols were not followed” after it obtained a tip in January that Nikolas Cruz, the suspect in the Florida school attack, had the potential of “conducting a school shooting.”

“We are still investigating the facts,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement. “I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public.”

The FBI said a caller had provided the bureau with “information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts” on Jan. 5.

But because of a lapse in procedure, the bureau said, the information was “not provided” to its regional field office in Miami and “no further investigation was conducted at that time.”

The announcement prompted a wave of backlash by public officials, with Gov. Rick Scott of Florida issuing a call for Wray to step down.

“The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,” Scott said in a statement, adding: “The FBI Director needs to resign.”

The bureau did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Scott’s statement. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, however, lamented the “tragic consequences of those failures” on Friday, saying that intelligence officials “must do better” to prevent further shootings from taking place.

“It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed,” Sessions said in a statement.

With the last name of "Cruz" he's obviously from a Hispanic family.
Might be considered "profiling" if the FBI did their job.
Just saying.
