The man suspected of killing 17 Florida high school students is in court today. The family of Nikolas Cruz didn’t notice anything strange about the man’s behavior the morning that he opened fire. However, others have said they saw clear signals that Cruz was mentally unstable and had expressed his desire to commit violence.
Cruz was able to legally purchase his AR-15 despite a long history of mental illness. Cruz is facing 17 counts of premeditated murder and posted a video of youtube last year stating that “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”
