TRANSCRIPT: FBI Tip-Line Caller Warned Nikolas Cruz is ‘GOING TO EXPLODE’ — Dressed as ‘Ninja or ISIS Fighter’
According to a transcript obtained by the Wall Street Journal, the FBI tip-line caller warned Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gunman Nikolas Cruz was “going to explode.” The caller also noted Cruz dressed up “as a ninja or an ISIS fighter.”
“You know, it’s just so much,” she said on the call. “I know he’s—he’s going to explode.” She said she was making the call because she wanted a “clear conscience if he takes off and, and just starts shooting places up.” […]
The caller began by saying Mr. Cruz had the mental capacity of a 12- or 14-year-old. She said he had started posting messages on his Instagram account that he wanted to kill himself and she’d alerted police to that threat, but wasn’t sure what happened in that investigation. […]
“Something is gonna happen,” she said. “Because he’s, he doesn’t have the mental capacity. He can’t, he’s so outraged if someone talks to him about certain things.” […]
“He brought the bird into the house,” she recounted. “He threw it on his mother’s kitchen counter and he started cutting it up. He has all kinds of hunting knives. I don’t know what knife he used, though. And he started cutting the bird up, and his mother…said, ‘What’re you doing?’ And he says, ‘I want to see what’s inside.’” Then the caller said, “That to me would be a red flag.” […]
The caller also mentioned that Mr. Cruz dressed up as a ninja or an ISIS fighter.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Cruz followed Syrian and Iraqi resistance groups on social media.

Gallagher: “We should also point out that we have scoured his social media footprint. We have mentioned this before, but he was clearly obsessed with guns because he was attached and followed all types of gun groups, as well as resistance groups — the Syrian resistance and Iraqi fighters. Remeber, we said earlier that he was actually involved in a chat room discussion, YouTube chat room discussion online about the building of bombs.”
It is still unknown which social media platforms Cruz followed Syrian resistance and Iraqi fighters on.
Cruz is not suspected of carrying out the shooting in the name of Islam or any Jihadi organization.
