How Obama’s PROMISE program resulted in the murder of schoolchildren in Parkland
05/12/2018 // Ethan Huff // Views

An Obama-era disciplinary policy that effectively shields "minority" schoolchildren from arrest and prosecution for certain crimes they commit appears to have been directly linked to the mass shooting incident that reportedly took place back on February 14, 2018, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Known as the PROMISE program, the policy, implemented by Obama, was offered up as a way to help combat "systemic racism" in the public school system – a government response to the supposedly disproportionate number of "minority" students compared to "non-minority" students who were being arrested on school campuses.

As a Jewish student with a Hispanic last name, Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz was reportedly admitted to Obama's PROMISE program after an incident in which he committed vandalism at his former school, Westglades Middle School.

Broward County authorities blatantly LIED about Cruz's inclusion in Obama's PROMISE program

Cruz was supposed to have attended a three-day assignment, or placement, in the PROMISE program as part of his "punishment" for this crime. But this may not have occurred, as was recently admitted by Broward County School District officials who, in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, repeatedly denied that Cruz was ever even admitted to Obama's PROMISE program in the first place.

Reports now indicate that, contrary to the earlier lies told by Broward County officials involved with the shooting's investigation, Cruz had, in fact, been admitted to Obama's PROMISE program. We also know that Obama's PROMISE program effectively shielded Cruz from proper punishment for these earlier crimes based on his "minority" status, effectively allowing him to later commit mass murder with a firearm at Stoneman.


Multiple officials in Broward County from both the school district and the sheriff's office had repeatedly denied that Cruz was ever in Obama's PROMISE program – only to later fess up that this was actually a lie.

These same officials are now trying to cover their tracks, not only defending their former statements but also the PROMISE program entirely, to which they claim they remain steadfastly committed. By keeping "minority" students out of the criminal justice system, they still claim, they are doing these individuals a favor by giving them a better shot at life – no pun intended.

According to school Superintendent Robert Runcie, who was among those who denied Cruz's involvement in the PROMISE program, the initiative is working well, as nearly nine out of 10 students admitted to it don't commit another offense at school. What this suggests is that Cruz is among the one in 10 who do, sadly.

Obama has blood on his hands for inadvertently facilitating Parkland shooting

No matter how people like Runcie try to spin it, Obama's PROMISE program indeed paved the way for Cruz to go on and commit mass murder when he should have received a harsher punishment for vandalism back in middle school. And in typical Obama fashion, it all stems from the fictitious idea that "whitey" somehow has it better than "brownie" and "blackie" – and in this case "Jewy?" – which necessitates holding double standards for criminal justice.

Had Cruz received the same punishment as anyone else would have for vandalizing bathrooms at his middle school, perhaps he never would have been given the overabundant benefit of the doubt in high school, despite showing what many have described as clear signs of derangement.

This makes race-baiting leftists like Obama complicit in such crimes, and it sure leaves a whole lot of blood on his hands in the process.
