Officials Arrest Parkland School Shooter's Brother For Trespassing Onto School Grounds

Report: Officials Recommended Fla. Suspect To Be Committed For Mental Evaluation
Zachary Cruz, 18, the brother of the shooter who killed 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was arrested Monday for trespassing at the Parkland school, officials said.
The school's resource officer, who resigned amid accusations he failed to respond to the deadly shooting, was among those who made the recommendation.
Wednesday's plea in a Fort Lauderdale court came after Cruz's defense attorney told the judge that the teen was standing mute to the charges - meaning he was declining to enter a plea.
Broward County prosecutors last week said they would seek a death sentence for Nikolas Cruz, who earlier this month was indicted by a grand jury on 34 counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder in the February 14 massacre, which killed 17 people and injured the same number.
Authorities say the involuntary commitment would have been a red flag if the suspect would have attempted to legally buy a firearm. They listed several factors, including that Cruz knowingly created a risk of death for many people and that the shooting was "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel".
Mr. Cruz denied telling another student that he wanted to use a gun or that he had ingested gasoline, the documents say.
Cruz told Henderson evaluators he damaged the wall because he was upset that his girlfriend broke up with him.
Five days earlier, on September 23, Ms. Cruz had summoned a different Henderson clinician to her home because Mr. Cruz was verbally aggressive and "punching holes in the wall".
Cruz also admitted cutting his arm with a pencil sharpener.
The records are from Henderson Behavioral Health, a local clinic that school officials called for help dealing with Mr. Cruz.
Cruz, 19, is charged in a 34-count indictment with killing 17 people and wounding 17 others in the attack. (Cruz) states that he cut because he was lonely, states that he had broken up with his girlfriend and reports that his grades had fallen. He faces the death penalty if convicted, but his public defender Melisa McNeill has said he would plead guilty in return for a life prison sentence.
He also told the clinician he owned only a pellet gun and was not capable of doing "serious harm" to anyone. Surveillance video showed that the deputy remained outside the freshman building during the shooting and did not try to confront Mr. Cruz, in apparent violation of the Broward County Sheriff's Office policy for dealing with active shooters.

A Wrinkle in Time review
Despite all my anticipation and love for Ava, " A Wrinkle in Time " settles at being merely good, when it could've been great. Too many young girls - including myself - grow up to be women who long to be someone or something we aren't.
