Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz snuck MAGA hat into his liberal, Trump-hating mother's casket
The Broward County Sheriff's Department revealed new details regarding the petty move on Cruz's part after his “liberal, anti-gun-type” mother Lynda Cruz's death in 2017.
In a twisted attempt to get the last word in with his mother who he had political differences with, Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz buried her with a "Make America Great Again" cap popularized by President Donald Trump.
According to Miami Herald, a friend of the man behind the massacre of February 14, 2018 told the authorities in a new investigative report that he sneaked the hat into his "liberal, anti-gun" mother's casket knowing fully well that she hated Trump.
In a 425-page file from the Broward County, Florida, Sheriff’s Department reveals the new details regarding the petty move on Cruz's part after his “liberal, anti-gun-type” mother Lynda Cruz's death in 2017.
“Due to the fact that his mother hated Donald Trump, he put it in her casket with her when she died and took a picture of her with the hat,” Hunter McCutcheon revealed.
Cruz, who got registered as a member of the Republican party while imprisoned is a huge fan of Trump and guns - both of which were matters of confict with his mother. This revelation made in the Broward Sheriff’s Office report makes for yet another disturbing facet about the emotionally disturbed teen who walked into his alma mater Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School earlier this year and fatally gunned down 17 people and wounding 17 others.
During his confession, Cruz had claimed that he was hearing demons in his head and a text he sent to his crush a day prior to the massacre also read that he "he felt like killing people." Cruz and the girl never dated, however, had hung out with him five days before the massacre "because he seemed depressed," she told a detective. The report read that the girl, who got incessant calls from Cruz, “insisted that Cruz meet her in a public place because she was afraid of him."
She was also referenced in a video Cruz posted in which he spoke about his loneliness, isolation, and anger: “My love for you, [redacted], will never go away. I hope to see you in the afterlife.”
The lengthy police report also revealed that Cruz had Googled, “How long does it take a cop to show up at a school shooting?” and posted videos of himself threatening to shoot up the school.
“Hello. My name is Nik and I’m going to be the next school shooter of 2018,” he said in one recording released in May. “My goal is at least 20 people with an AR-15 . . . Location is Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida.”
