Parkland shooter’s brother starts anti-bullying campaign even though shooter wasn’t bullied

Parkland shooter's brother starts anti-bullying campaign even though shooter wasn't bullied

Zachary Cruz

Back in June, it was reported that Zachary Cruz started an anti-bullying foundation. Cruz is the brother of Nikolas Cruz, the psychopath who murdered 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Florida back in February. Zachary Cruz is no stranger to law enforcement after he was caught trespassing on the school’s grounds shortly after the shooting claiming he wanted to ‘soak it all in’. While in custody, Zachary Cruz allegedly bragged about how many girls he and his brother were going to get due to his brother’s infamy. He has since been allowed to leave Florida and has moved to Virginia.

Before we get to the obvious point, is this really the type of person who should be running an anti-bullying foundation? I’m not saying bullying isn’t a major problem within our schools, considering I experienced it on a first-hand basis almost daily for 12 years. Victims of severe bullying definitely need more resources to help them deal with the problem, but those resources should not be inspired by someone who tries to capitalize on mass murder.

Now on to the obvious point. Zachary Cruz claims a program like his could have helped his brother…

“He was open to trying new things, so this organization – let’s say a kid would’ve saw him at Douglas by himself and that kid would’ve approached him and became his friend, I really think that person would’ve changed this whole thing.”

That’s great but let’s get a few things straight. Nikolas Cruz wasn’t bullied. He was ostracized because of his obsession with guns and his repulsive behavior such as posting pictures of dead animals on social media. Let’s also not forget that when a female student of the school tried reaching out to Nikolas Cruz, he became aggressive toward her and sexually harassed her.

No program would have done any good for Nikolas Cruz, and any anti-bullying campaign connected to him is just trying to deflect responsibility.

In my previous post about Zachary Cruz, the brother of mass murdering troglodyte Nikolas Cruz, I had hoped that his latest probation violation would have kept him in jail for at least six months. Zachary Cruz was sentenced to six months probation after being caught trespassing in March on the grounds of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High where his brother killed 17 victims. He reportedly claimed he went to the school to ‘take it all in’. During his first trip to jail, he is said to have bragged about how many girls he and his brother would get since they were ‘famous’.

Instead of being jailed for six months, Zachary Cruz was only jailed for three days as he was released from jail yesterday.

Broward County Judge Melinda Kirsch Brown gave him a gentle warning. “Please do what you know is right and make wise choices,” she said during a brief hearing on Thursday afternoon.

The younger Cruz brother is a ticking time bomb and a judge is just going to give him a pat on the head and release him back to the streets? I wonder if his release has anything to do with a lawsuit a civil rights group has filed on behalf of Zachary Cruz. The group claims Cruz is being ‘harassed’ by law enforcement. Maybe if he wasn’t trying to capitalize on the number of bodies left in his brother’s wake, then the police wouldn’t have a reason to ‘harass’ him.

UPDATE 5/12/2018: Congratulations Virginia. The courts have allowed Zachary Cruz to move to your state. Maybe he can hang out with Kenny Bartley.

In my previous post, I detailed the incidents that led Zachary Cruz to jail and then probation. To sum up, Cruz, the brother of mass-murdering cretin Nikolas Cruz, was arrested for trespassing at the same school where his brother killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida. His reason for being at the school was to ‘take it in’ as he put it. While in jail he bragged about how famous his brother was. Zachary Cruz was released on six months probation after pleading guilty to trespassing.

Tuesday, Zachary Cruz was arrested again. This time for violating his probation. Not only was he allegedly caught driving without a valid license, but police also say that he was within 25 feet of a high school in Lake Worth, Florida.

So far, no reason has been given as to why Cruz was at the school this past weekend, but if I had to hazard a guess, it feels like he really wants to cash in on his brother’s reputation and obviously not in a good way. Hopefully, he’ll have at least a six-month timeout where investigators can get a better handle on his machinations.

Next on the ‘Back in March’ series…

18-year-old Zachary Cruz is the brother of Nikolas Cruz, the mass-murdering assclown responsible for the 17 deaths at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Apparently, Zachary Cruz was so into what his brother did he thought it would be a great idea to go visit the school, in his words, to “soak it in.” Cruz was booked into the Broward Sheriff’s Office jail back in mid-March, and his bond was initially set at $25. You’re reading that correctly, twenty-five dollars.

Once in jail, Zachary Cruz allegedly bragged to the other prisoners about how many girls they could get thanks to his brother’s infamy.

“There is discussion of starting some sort of pen pal or fan club and how many girls he is capable of attracting, referring to his brother Nikolas.”

I’ll be addressing that particular issue soon. But getting back to the matter at hand, Zachary Cruz’s bond was raised to $500,000, a more appropriate amount if you ask me, but I digress. Zachary Cruz’s attorney claimed the bail was set unfairly due to who his brother is. Doesn’t seem unfair to me since he was hanging around the same school where his brother gunned down 17 people in cold blood just to ‘take it all in’.

Zachary Cruz pleaded no contest to trespassing and only received six months probation, so sleep well, Broward County.
