Default Did Lax Obama-Era School-Discipline Policies Enable the Parkland Shooter?

The failures of local law enforcement and the FBI to stop the Parkland shooter despite numerous contacts is well known. The failure of the school administrators to refer the shooter to the police for numerous criminal offenses due to an Obama era policy is given comparative little criticism.

Quote:
Despite committing a string of arrestable offenses on campus before the Florida school shooting, Nikolas Cruz was able to escape the attention of law enforcement, pass a background check and purchase the weapon he used to slaughter three staff members and 14 fellow students because of Obama administration efforts to make school discipline more lenient.
This feel good policy was packaged as stopping the so-called school to prison pipeline.

Quote:
In 2013, the Broward County school board entered into an agreement with multiple law-enforcement agencies — including the Broward County sheriff — designed to limit the number of on-campus arrests.

Obama education secretary Arne Duncan even highlighted Broward County’s efforts to reduce out-of-school suspensions and try alternative forms of discipline. Broward County was reportedly “one of 53 major school districts” to adopt Obama-administration guidelines designed in part to limit law-enforcement involvement in school discipline.
The unintended consequence of the policy was that the school shooter had a clean record allowing him to pass a firearms purchase background check.

Quote:
Yes, let’s be creative in addressing non-violent offenses. No, let’s not involve law enforcement too soon when no one is under threat. But the simple fact is that some kids should face arrest. Some kids should have criminal records. In trying to protect these kids from themselves, school districts are making innocent students and teachers more vulnerable. That’s an unacceptable tradeoff.
While it's wildly unrealistic to expect the media to publicize the danger of these agreements between the school districts and the Federal government to keep campus felons out of the criminal justice system when there are other important national issues like Stormy Daniels to focus on, the failure to spotlight the ongoing danger to the students at other school districts who have adopted this policy is nothing less than a gross dereliction of responsibility.

Another Obama fail. To many illegals crossing the border? Stop counting the them. The illegal numbers go down. Too many prisoners at GITMO? Release them. Problemsolved. Too many high school students arrested? Stop arresting them. No more bad arrest records.

That the policy means terrorists on the loose, criminals invading our borders, or background checks rendered useless doesn't matter as long as the numbers look good.
