This has proven to be yet another disturbing week at Stoneman Douglas High School
The Parkland school in the news yet again. This time two students were arrested, one who had a knife and the other a reportedly had a razor blade. The incompetence shown in and around the school is astounding because that isn’t the only thing that has happened in the last two days. There isn’t any wonder why student are so afraid there.
A Third student was taken to a mental hospital for making threats on social media. The third student reportedly showed off his gun and bullets while threatening the school. But wait there is more…
The brother of Nicolas Cruz, the school shooter, was arrested after violating a restraining order by entering school grounds for the third time. What Zachary Cruz was doing on the property is still being debated at this time. The kicker here is that the sergeant assigned to patrol the school was found sleeping in his cruiser at the time Zachary was found on the property.

The next arrest came in the afternoon when school authorities learned that Gavin Stricker, 17, had brandished a knife on a bus Monday. He was called into the school’s office and a 9-inch knife was found in his backpack, according to a juvenile arrest report.
