Parkland school shooter’s brother was arrested for trespassing on school grounds. His bail was obviously set at 500k to set an example to others.
Piles of flowers sit outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, a visual reminder that the campus is still a place where students and faculty honor the lives of the 17 people who were gunned down on Valentine’s Day by Nikolas Cruz. It is the last place some in this community would expect or want to see Cruz’s younger brother.
Yet Zachary Cruz was arrested last week, accused of trespassing on school grounds. Police say he has visited the campus at least three times since the shooting. On his last visit, Cruz, clad in a white T-shirt, blue shorts and a baseball cap, calmly told deputies he was there to “reflect on the school shooting and to soak it in,” according to a probable cause affidavit. He did not enter any buildings.
Normally, trespassing in Broward County is a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. The bond typically is $25, but the judge in Zachary Cruz’s case set bail at $500,000. The judge also ordered a psychological evaluation, electronic monitoring, no communication with Nikolas Cruz and a search of Zachary’s residence for any weapons.
CNN wants us to feel guilty about poor Zack, and with just one look at his picture, we don’t have to wonder why. We know their m.o. The thing is, on March 3rd, CNN published an article with Cruz admitting to bullying his older brother Nikolas. He also stated that he could have “possibly prevented” the shooting. Check out this article, and if you know how the establishment media works, you’ll see they are in quite the pickle.
On one hand, they want to be on the side of the victims of the mass shooting, but on the other, they want us to have sympathy for a bully who quite possibly could have pushed Nikolas Cruz over the edge. One thing is for sure, if Zachary looked like me, CNN and their mindless liberal followers would be cheering the high bail.
