YouTube User Tipped Off FBI Months Ago About Nikolas Cruz

The FBI were warned last September by a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger that Nikolas Cruz was threatening to conduct a mass shooting.  Although the FBI visited the vlogger and asked him if he knew Cruz, he said no and that was that.

The vlogger is 36 year-old Ben Bennight. He noticed an alarming comment by Cruz left on one of his videos: “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” Bennight even emailed the FBI a screenshot of the comment. He also flagged the comment on YouTube and they removed the comment from the video.
