H/T Clash America.

Rush Limbaugh reported on this several months ago.

The same Obama who wiped his ‘if it would save just one life’ tear also endorsed the program that let the Parkland killer go unnoticed.

If they had treated him like a regular criminal, he’d never have been allowed to own firearms.

The PROMISE program whose existence had been denied by the Broward Superintendent has not only been confirmed to exist in Broward but had been applied to the kid who shot up the place — not once.

Remember — this is the same kid whose own mother had to call the police. He was under psychiatric care. He had recently been orphaned. And not a student in the school seemed to be surprised to learn it was him.

Broward school district officials admitted Sunday that the confessed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gunman was assigned to a controversial disciplinary program, after the superintendent repeatedly claimed Nikolas Cruz had “no connection” to the alternative punishment designed to limit on-campus arrests.

Two sources with knowledge of Cruz’s discipline records told WLRN he was referred to the so-called PROMISE Program for a three-day stint after committing vandalism at Westglades Middle School in 2013.

When asked for a response, a spokeswoman for Superintendent Robert Runcie stated on Friday that district administrators were aggressively analyzing Cruz’s records. Then Tracy Clark said on Sunday afternoon the district had “confirmed” Cruz’s referral to PROMISE after he vandalized a bathroom at the middle school on Nov. 25, 2013.

There’s no record of him even going through the three day assignment/placement.

The PROMISE program allows students who commit certain misdemeanors — there’s an official list of 13 — at school to avoid getting involved with the criminal justice system. Instead, they attend the alternative school, where they receive counseling and other support.

PROMISE has come under scrutiny after 17 people died in the Feb. 14 shooting at Stoneman Douglas, in part because one of the injured survivors is planning a lawsuit that will argue the program led school leaders to demonstrate a lax attitude toward discipline.
