Broward County School District Wanted Reporters Jailed for Releasing Details About Nikolas Cruz, Report Says

Published

on

The Broward County School District, which presides over Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, wanted reporters jailed for doing their jobs in the wake of the massacre where 17 students were killed.

“The district’s chief lawyer, Barbara Myrick, asked a judge this week to hold the newspaper and two reporters in contempt of court for publishing an uncensored report about the Parkland school shooter,” said a Sun Sentinel report from August. “She said she never consulted the school board despite filing the action on the board’s behalf.”

The district was forced to make a long-awaited report on Nikolas Cruz, the deranged killer, public by court order, but about two thirds of the report was originally redacted for “privacy” concerns. However, two enterprising sleuths at the Sun Sentinel realized that due to an error by the district, the full, unredacted report could be viewed.

“Reporters Brittany Wallman and Paula McMahon, acting on a Facebook tip from a reader at 7:30 p.m., discovered that the district had erred in how it redacted the report,” the report said. “Anyone could copy and paste the report into a Microsoft Word document to make all of the text visible.”

From the unredacted report, the journalists wrote their story, which led the district to attempt to silence them by holding them in contempt. The school board denied knowledge of their lawyer’s actions, claiming that she acted without consulting them.

“The decision was made without my consultation, and I would like to have a say in what’s going on right now,” board member Robin Bartleman said according to the report.

Sun Sentinel editor-in-chief Julie Anderson backed her reporters.

“I don’t understand how the School Board can sue the Sun Sentinel and the board members didn’t approve that,” she reportedly said. “Regardless, we will defend our reporters and the Sun Sentinel’s right to publish an important story based on a lawfully obtained report. We feel strongly that we didn’t break the law and have no regrets for publishing the school district’s history with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooter.”

Broward County, with its bumbling corrupt sheriff,  attempts to rig elections on behalf of Democrats and threats of silencing American journalists is ground zero for American tyranny.

Josh Hawley SLAPS DOWN Justin Amash in Big Tech Tweet Thread

Amash recently failed to win the Libertarian Party presidential nomination.

Missouri Republican populist Senator Josh Hawley slapped down corporate libertarian Congressman Justin Amash in an epic tweet thread, educating him on the wide variety of constitutional and measured policy proposals to regulate the political censorship tactics of Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter and Facebook.

Amash had claimed Hawley, a Yale Law graduate with more than a decade of experience practicing as a private attorney and as the Attorney General of Missouri was ignorant as to the ramification of Section 230 of the communications decency act that exempts the Big Tech monopolies from legal challenges to their censorship tactics. Hawley had earlier sent a letter to Twitter CEO demanding that he provide a meaningful explanation of what makes the censorious company a platform, as opposed to a publisher that actively curates political content.

Hawley responded, making sure to remind the Never Trump Libertarian that he had recently failed to win the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party.

Amash had tried to obstinately argue that Twitter is little more than a neutral platform, when the tech company has been actively inserting editorial ‘fact checks’ into conservative content. Hawley was quick to remind him that the totally arbitrary liberal narrative Twitter is now inserting onto President Trump’s tweets isn’t much different from the liberal screeds one would expect from CNN or the New York Times.

Inserting an arbitrary “fact-check” into the President’s tweets is in fact significant editorial content, even though it’s inconvenient to the corporate libertarian who couldn’t even win the presidential nomination of what may be the most cringeworthy political party in the United States.
