Even though I don’t consider myself someone who believes in conspiracies, I must admit that there are some instances that just can’t be explained away as mere coincidences.

The perpetrators of practically every mass shooting that we have witnessed over the years appear to have had some sort of encounter with the FBI or have been referred to authorities that they could be dangerous.

This is almost always the case. Yet, they always seem to slip through the cracks somehow. The more I think about it, the more I start to question if this isn’t being done on purpose.

According to recent reports, the gunman, who is 22 years old, has a history of legal concerns and even threatened to kill his entire family as recently as September 2019.

At first, the police stated that they were not familiar with Crimo, but on Tuesday, they disclosed that they had spoken to him twice in 2019 for various investigations.

The first was in April 2019, a week after he threatened to kill himself. The second was in September 2019, after he threatened to “kill everyone” in his family.

Police recovered 16 knives, a dagger, and a sword from his home, but he was not arrested.

Instead, he was able to turn 21 and buy two “assault rifles” in Illinois, along with three other types of guns. It remains unclear why the two previous incidents were not flagged when he legally purchased the weapons.

Chris Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office disclosed the prior incidents at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

In the April 2019 incident, ‘an individual contacted the Highland Park department a week after learning of his attempted suicide. It was a delayed report.

‘They responded to the residence, spoke to him, and his parents, and the matter was being handled with the mental health profession. There was no law enforcement action to be taken.

Now, if you’ll notice, none of the proposed gun laws would have stopped this tragedy from unfolding. After the threats were made, he was still able to purchase five guns at the age of 21.

As much as I am fierce defender of freedom, I am also concerned about how he was able to purchase the weapons so easily after being interrogated by the police on multiple occasions.

I’ve said it before, if red flag laws were used properly, they would be a good thing, but the problem is that in many situations they are not.

  • Given all the FBI’s malfeasances, mis-feasances & non-feasances, I also have become very suspicious of their motives. This mass shooting again points to the folly of our gun policies. What good are red flag laws–I think they’re inherently unconstitutional–if they’re not used? Why are not clinical psychologists criminally compelled to report threatening mentally disturbed behavior? Why are under 18 yr olds’ threatening mentally disturbed behaviors not reported under criminal penalty? Why isn’t there a national database file system–like used for DNA & fingerprints–so that gun dealers can access it, instead of only having to take the word of the purchaser? So many questions, so few satisfactory answers. One possible conclusion: our government, INCLUDING THE FBI, really doesn’t give a damn about protecting its citizens, no matter what they say. Actions speak so much louder than words…

    • The FBI has become nothing more than the GESTAPO of the power-mad Demmunists. They are too busy hunting down and PERSECUTING every single person who was in Washington, DC on Jan. 6th–whether or NOT they were anywhere NEAR the Capitol on that day–to be bothered with doing ANYTHING to prevent underage NUT CASES from committing mass murder! ESPECIALLY since said horrendous crimes are so very USEFUL to the conniving Demmunists for pushing their gun-grabbing, anti-Second Amendment agenda! “Never let a crisis go to waste,” is their Saul Alinsky mantra. Maybe they should add a coda to that mantra–“even if you have to CREATE the crisis to be able to use it for your OWN purposes.”

    • Red flag gun laws work great against honest gun owners and especially if they proclaim they are republican.

  • The FBI does not ‘watch’ these domestic terrorists. The FBI ‘Grooms and Manages’ them!

    • That is my belief also! This scenario where “everybody” in law enforcement–INCLUDING the FBI–“knew” the nut case was a threat, but NOBODY chose to DO anything about it–happens WAY TOO OFTEN to be mere ‘happenstance.”

  • I’ve been questioning for a long time now why it is that MULTIPLE mass shootings seem to occur EVERY single time the conniving Demmunists are on one of their big gun-grabbing crusades. It happens WAY too often to be written off as mere “coincidence!” I believe these FBI encounters that result in NO “red flag” or any OTHER action that would prevent these nuts from buying weapons are evidence that these nuts are being left in place DELIBERATELY so they can be TRIGGERED somehow–either with psychotropic drugs and the power of suggestion, or SOMETHING. These horrendous crimes are just way TOO convenient to furthering the totalitarian agenda of the power-mad Demmunists to be happenstance.

  • highland Park isn’t the only place where they dropped the ball. They dropped the ball on Parkland, they dropped the ball on the Boston Marathon Bomber, the FBI also dropped the ball on 9/11. The FBI accepts 0 responsibility and 0 accountability.

  • I believe it was the Police dept, not the FBI that was called twice on 2019 for Robt “Bobby” Crimo.

  • The local police handled the two encounters with the shooter in 2019. they reported the knife seizing incident to the Illinois State Police. hen the shooter wanted to get a FOID card, he was underage and his father sponsored him. In doing so, the review of the application by whichever government agency does this, looked at the father’s record and not the son’s. So the shooter got his FOID card, waited until he was 21 and was able to legally purchase guns. The father might be held partially responsible for the outcomes.

  • Don’t be too hard on the FBI. After all, they were too busy raiding the homes and offices of Trump associates. I think we should have a new name for the FBI. It should be Fools Biden Invented.
