Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was a victim of the Parkland massacre that left 17 dead, is on a mission to make sure other parents are aware of what failed in Broward County so that future school tragedies might be prevented.

The mourning father has written a book spelling out the countless red flags school officials and law enforcement were handed regarding the deranged murderer who took the lives of so many innocent victims, including Meadow — and says policies implemented by President Barack Obama prevented the reporting of an abundance of evidence that could have been used to stop his daughter’s killer.

Pollack and the co-author of his book, “Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created The Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students,” provided an excerpt published recently by the New York Post, giving a chilling account of records detailing the classroom behavior of the accused Parkland murderer, Nikolas Cruz.

The piece goes through a litany of events which — although apparently disturbing enough for Cruz’s teachers to report in their notes — were either never reported to or dismissed by proper authorities. One noteworthy example was that Cruz’s psychiatrist insisted her patient should not be admitted in to JROTC citing “the safety of others/himself,” but he was nonetheless enrolled in the program and “literally” given “an air gun, shaped like an AR-15, and [allowed to] practice shooting.”

On Wednesday, Pollack explained to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, a specific example of how policies implemented by the Obama administration contributed to Cruz slipping through the cracks.

“Students were allowed four misdemeanors per school year without being introduced to the judicial system,” Pollack said. “And then, at the end of the year — if you can believe this, Tucker — so that was in the ninth grade, you had a kid next to your kid in the classroom, commits four misdemeanors, and then the next year in tenth grade, he resets at zero, again, and is allowed another four misdemeanors per school year.”

Pollack conceded, “The left, they don’t want to hear my story. They want to blame the big, old, black, scary gun; but that didn’t happen in Broward.”

WATCH:

A report from RealClearInvestigations earlier this year gives an abundance of evidence supporting Pollack’s claims, reiterating that the policies set forth by President Obama and carried out by Broward school Superintendent Robert Runcie — a “Chicogoan and Harvard graduate with close ties to President Obama and his Education Department” — were “behind Cruz’s Florida rampage.”

The RCI piece details how Broward was seen as an example of Obama’s mission to end the “school-to-prison pipeline,” implementing changes that assured “students charged with various misdemeanors, including assault, would now be disciplined through participation in ‘healing circles,’ obstacle courses and other ‘self-esteem building’ exercises” rather than being reported to authorities.

A veteran FBI agent told the outlet of Cruz, “He had a clean record, so alarm bells didn’t go off when they looked him up in the system. He probably wouldn’t have been able to buy the murder weapon if the school had referred him to law enforcement.”

    The Simple Solution To Mass Shootings At Schools

    Everyone has an opinion on them and what to do to prevent them. Unfortunately, most of what you are hearing as proposed “solutions” are not solutions at all but are simply virtue signalling to make anti-gunners feel better while not doing a thing to save any lives.
    So, what is the solution, then, if all of the solutions promoted by the media don’t actually make any difference? The solution, according to a writer named Brandon Morse, is one that has been talked about, but very few people want to hear. He writes,
    IT’S TOUGH HAVING TO WRITE THIS ARTICLE AGAIN. NOT BECAUSE IT’S HORRIBLE HAVING TO COVER A TOPIC UNDER THE WORST OF CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT BECAUSE IN ORDER TO SUGGEST THIS ONE HAS TO SEEMINGLY PUT HIS HEART DOWN AS SO MANY OTHERS ARE BREAKING IN HALF IN ORDER TO TURN TO COLD LOGIC. BUT IN THIS CASE, COLD LOGIC IS GOING TO SAVE LIVES, AND KEEP HEARTS WHOLE.
    YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW WHAT I’M GOING TO WRITE, BUT I’M GOING TO WRITE IT ANYWAY. IF YOU WANT TO STOP SCHOOL SHOOTINGS FROM OCCURRING,ELIMINATE GUN FREE ZONES, PUT GUNS IN THE SCHOOL. HIRE ARMED OFF-DUTY POLICE OR EX-MILITARY, AND ALLOW THEM TO WANDER THE HALLS OF THE SCHOOL. SHOULD A SHOOTER BE STUPID ENOUGH TO WANDER IN AND BEGIN ATTEMPTING TO SLAUGHTER THE INNOCENT, THEN DARWIN WILL HAVE HIS DAY, AND ONE LESS IDIOT SET ON DOING EVIL WILL EXIST ON THIS PLANE.
    Morse is right: having someone armed at the schools to protect students and faculty is the only solution that makes sense because, frankly, there is no way to be able to track down and stop every would-be mass shooter before they commit their crime.
    The one thing that I would add to Morse’s solution is that the armed person in the school needs to have the mindset training so that they can do the deed when it needs to be done (an armed school resource officer was on site at the time of the Parkland, Florida shooting but did not go into the school to engage the shooter). No sane person wants to shoot another person, but, if someone else has already used the tool of violence, then having the intent to do as much violence as necessary to the perpetrator, including killing them, if need be, is necessary to prevent more innocent deaths.
    So, next time your anti-gun friends want to start blaming guns, ask them how they plan to stop the murdering before it happens because the fact of the matter is that, if it’s not guns, it will be a car driven into a crowd, or a homemade bomb, or a knife attack (which have been known to kill as many people as mass shootings), or some other horrible thing. They can’t answer that question because they are fixated on the tool and not on the intent. The only solution to prevent more needless deaths is to have someone on campus with the training, intent, and tools to take down a would-be murderer before they can do all of the damage that they want to do.

    This story will be buried by the mainstream media. It is all Trump’s fault. Everything is Trump’s fault. Look in the mirror and they see Trump. It is time to stand up and let the truth be told.
