Parkland students want to sue FBI, law enforcement for government failure to prevent or stop mass shooting

Two Parkland shooting survivors and their families are filing separate lawsuits against government authorities for their respective roles regarding the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school.

The family of 15-year-old Anthony Borges intends to sue Broward County Public School District and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, as reported by The Miami Herald.

“The failure of Broward County Public Schools and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent,” said family attorney Alex Arreaza in a letter of intent. “Such action or inaction led to the personal injuries sustained by my client.”

The family of 15-year-old Kyle Laman intend to sue the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Florida’s Department of Children and Families for failing to take action to stop suspect Nikolas Cruz from carrying out his atrocity.

The FBI recently confessed to being at fault for failing to stop Cruz on a number of occasions while the agency briefed lawmakers in a closed-door meeting on Wednesday.
