Florida Shooting Prosecutors Will Seek Death Penalty for Nikolas Cruz

On Valentine’s Day, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida responded to a reported shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School! This is what’ve heard om the day when the tragedy happened!

But in real life, the police officer that was supposed to act didn’t do anything and the sheriff was totally incompetent!

This has triggered many people in Florida to finally do something’ first of all nearly every Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives was calling on Gov. Rick Scott (R) to suspend a county sheriff over his office’s response to a deadly mass shooting at a local high school last month.

Today Florida prosecutors filed a notice of intent to seek the death penalty for Nikolas Cruz, who killed 17 people in a Florida school shooting on Valentine’s Day.

Cruz is scheduled for a formal arraignment Wednesday on a 34-count indictment. Cruz, who walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 and opened fire, was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.

Cruz’s attorney previously said the 19-year-old would plead guilty if prosecutors did not pursue the death penalty. Tuesday’s notice of intent does not necessarily mean a plea deal will not be reached.

The only other penalty option for Cruz is life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Prosecutors say they want to pick the mental health expert to evaluate Cruz — that’s presuming the defense raises his mental health as a mitigating factor in the crime.

Florida uses lethal injection to execute prisoners.
