The FBI received a tip in January from a person close to Nikolas Cruz expressing concern that he might commit a school shooting, but it was never forwarded to a Miami field office to be investigated, the agency said. The tipster told the FBI on Jan. 5 that Cruz owned guns, had a desire to kill people, and provided information about his erratic behavior and disturbing social media posts. According to FBI, the tip should have been sent to the FBI's Miami field office to be investigated, but that never happened.

The FBI's failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,, acknowledging a mistake isn't going to cut it. ’See something, say something' is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. 

The FBI director needs to resign.
