Nikolas Cruz prosecutors 'consider DEATH PENALTY' after Florida school massacre

Nikolas Cruz prosecutors 'consider DEATH PENALTY' after Florida school massacre

Survivors of the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, carried out a rally in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, calling for tougher gun laws in the U.S., a nation infamous for the number of guns in the possession of civilians. "President Trump, you say 'what can you do?' You can stop the guns from getting into these children's hands".

Cruz had scores of run-ins with law enforcement dating back to 2010 - with one report saying sheriff's deputies responded to his home more than 35 times in just six years.

The cameras didn't follow Trump into the hospital rooms of victims (for obvious reasons) so it's not clear what he said to them, but afterwards he gave a brief statement to the media from inside the hospital. "He would not have harmed that many students with a knife".

A gunman killed 17 people earlier in the week after opening fire on students and staff at his former high school using a legally purchased AR-15 rifle.

Trump said Thursday that he was "committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools, and tackle the hard issue of mental health", although without offering details.

U.S. President Donald Trump (R) departs for Florida in the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on February 16, 2018.

Besides the 17 killings, the shooting also injured 14 others. "Everyday, we students walk into school with the promise of an education without threat of violence". Many Americans are calling on Congress to enact new gun laws to prevent such catastrophes from happening again, including late night TV's Jimmy Kimmel.

One student asked President Trump to meet with her.

Now the Federal Bureau of Investigation is back in the spotlight for failing to fully investigate two tips that could have stopped the murder of 17 people, mostly high school students.

The state would have to agree to not seek capital punishment, but the office said they would come to a decision at the "appropriate time".
