5:34 am
nothing. the alleged shooter didn't tip anybody, colony buddy, tip anybody, warn anybody this is about to happen. turning social media is the second thing they are focusing on today. they told us they have found the very disturbing post commending us relating to shootings, guns, knives posted by this kind man, nikolas cruz in this case. they will be pouring through that. the fbi going through that today. his first the school year, it will be closed today and tomorrow. they are providing grief counselors. lauren: caroline, thank you very much. cheryl: president trump tweeting about the tragedy. prayers and condolences to the terms of the terrible florida shooting. the child, teacher i know and i'll should feel in american school. the director of global elite joins morning to talk about the story. mike baker covert operations
5:35 am
officer joins us over the phone. good morning. let's first talk about what we know so far. this was a troubled teenager. the signs were there on social media. he was a legal gun owner. kids at the school described him as a loner, kind of troubled, maybe taking medications. the signs were there. how did he miss her? >> it's very simple. when they are aware of some off-center behavior, and they seem to compartmentalize it is not necessarily disgusted with administrators and schools. there are other bigger issues here in one of it lends itself to how, children are being programmed both through the entertainment industry into video games to carry acts of this nature. we are already politicizing this. what i find interesting is as disconcerting as the episode is commerce equally disconcerting to know that none of our elected officials have put their brains
5:36 am
together to figure out how they will s.t.e.m. the flow of these incidents. >> that's a fair question. we've been through this before. in modern history this is the third deadly shooting behind sandy hook and behind virginia tech. here we are once again covering a mass shooting at a school. >> fray. i mean, the answer is to the frustration that yes, we all look at this and we think you would go again. another incident and we all know in the back of our mind that we are going to go through the same steps. the horror and the revolt should not react. there will be this stage of grief and the thoughts and prayer statement from other politicians. there will be the last, demanding how could we not take gun control measures. they will be the right guy for not and then we are going to
5:37 am
move on until the next incident. what we've got to do is find some point on the curve though both sides of this issue because it's always political. both sides can agree to and whether that is how do we deal with mental health issues and also hardly deals from an an operational perspective sharing information in that space with the issue of it is there some gun control matter here we can deal with that is not going to unseat the left and the right. cheryl: re: have a debate about gun control after everyone of these of these incidents we've seen. this time around they do we do something different. maybe we talk about dealing with this at the school level as mike just said dealing with mental health issues and maybe more monitoring of social media, better monitoring for can catch things as they happen.
5:38 am
>> and we speak to this intelligently, let's identify the fact the common denominator to every one of these mass killings as mental illness or emotional illness number one. number two, if we speak about gun control in a fully support the second amendment, we have to do that equally. what i find disturbing as those of us in law enforcement go through different screening process for vetting process as opposed to those who indiscriminately walk into stores throughout the united states and by the same weapons they carry military and law enforcement without any vetting except for the fact they been convicted of a felony. perhaps we need to entertain the idea we need to psychologically screen people before we allow them part of these weapons. i have no aversion to anyone wanting to protect their family and if you feel you so need this kr 15 or m4, i understand that. i understand the rationale and arguments on both sides.
