By The Daily Wire. On Wednesday, videos made by the deranged gunman who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February were released that appeared to reveal a possible motive of why he shot up the school.
“It’s going to be a big event,” the Parkland shooter said before laughing. “And when you see me on the news, you’ll all know who I am.” . . .
The 19-year-old said that his goal was to kill at least 20 people, saying, “I had enough of people telling me I’m an idiot and a dumbass…you will all know who my name is. With the power of my AR you will all know who I am.”
“There is a certain group of school shooters who engaged in fame-seeking behavior,” Peter Langman, a clinical psychologist, told The Miami Herald. “They want to be known. They want to change from a nobody into a somebody and the only way they can think to do that it to kill a lot of people.” (Read more from “Horror: Parkland Shooter Made Videos Before Massacre.

‘You’re All Going to Die.’ Nikolas Cruz Made Cellphone Videos Plotting Parkland Attack.
By The Miami Herald. Nikolas Cruz reached for his cellphone before his rifle.
Sometime before killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, Cruz recorded three cellphone videos discussing his plan to murder students and staff. . .
Prosecutors released the videos Wednesday afternoon as they prepare for a possible death penalty trial. The videos may offer insight into what motivated Cruz to commit Florida’s worst school shooting, which has led to a nationwide debate over gun control.
Cruz, a former Stoneman Douglas student who seems to have meticulously planned his attack, expressed anger at his old classmates, saying they thought he was an “idiot and a dumb ass” when in fact it was they who had been “brainwashed by these f***ing political government programs.” And he declared his love for a girl he identified only by her first name, saying he hoped to see her “in the afterlife.”
The videos, all shorter than 90 seconds, will almost certainly bolster the prosecution’s efforts to convict Cruz, 19, of first-degree murder, a capital offense: Under Florida law, such charges must be premeditated.
