Just when you thought it was safe to watch the news….the latest school shooting brings out all the morons….the latest moron is the idiot Floridians elected twice as governor, Rick Scott……
The Republican governor of Florida is calling for the resignation of FBI Director Christopher Wray in the wake of the FBI’s admission it ignored a warning about the man suspected of killing 17 people in Wednesdays’ school shooting in Parkland, CBS News reports. “Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it,” Gov. Rick Scott says in a statement. “An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain.” Earlier Friday the FBI admitted “protocols were not followed” after a tip was called in to the FBI’s public access line last month but not passed along to the Miami field office. Scott says that’s “unacceptable” and the FBI has damaged the public’s belief in the effectiveness of “see something, say something.”
Scott isn’t the only one with harsh words for Wray. “The FBI apologized? Tell that to families,” a family friend of one of the victims tells Reuters. “People were seeing something and saying something and it still happened.” Meanwhile Republican Sen. Marco Rubio called for a congressional investigation into the FBI’s lack of action, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “conduct an immediate review” of how the FBI and Justice Department handle violent threats. But Eric Levitz at New York states Wray isn’t the one to blame, as he doesn’t manage the FBI tip line or Miami field office. He says Scott is trying “to deflect attention away from the governor’s A+ NRA rating, or to abet the president’s efforts to ‘purge’ the FBI of ‘disloyal’ elements.”
This call is silly!
Okay the FBI was warned and apparently there was nothing that triggered their suspicion…they moved on and this twat with a gun went on his spree.
What should the FBI done? Lock this idiot up without probable cause?
Good one but according to the Constitution we are still a democracy with laws….at least for now. But it is not looking good for the future.
So this call from the governor is just another coward playing politics with the shooting.
Just another asshole attacking the FBI to help the narrative set forth by the guy in silk PJs in DC.
