Parents of two Oxford high school students who barely survived November 30 filming continue the Michigan school district for allegedly endangering their children in a pair of lawsuits targeting $ 100 million each.

Plaintiffs Jeffrey Franz and Brandi Franz are suing the school district on behalf of their daughters Riley and Bella, who are 12th and 9th grade students at Oxford High School. Riley was shot in the neck.

A SHOOTING SUSPECT AT THE MICHIGAN SCHOOL WAS A DIRECT THREAT ON SOCIAL MEDIA DAY BEFORE THE TRAGEDY: PURSUIT

Famous lawyer Geoffrey Fieger represents the family. He told “The Story” on Thursday that Crumbley’s intention to harm students should have been “obvious” to school officials in light of his recently uncovered social media posts where he appears to threaten his school. the day before the shooting.

“They were aware of Internet publications indicating that he intended to create havoc,” Fieger said. “He drew pictures that indicated he was going to indulge in murderous rage… they recognized him enough when they took him out of the classroom.”

“Instead of calling the police liaison officer, they called his parents,” he added. “They told his parents to take him out of school. The parents refused. They said okay he can stay here and go to class.”

This decision, Fieger said, resulted in a “tragic error”.

Around November 16, the parents apparently shared their concerns with Wolf about Crumbley’s social media threats and other signs of disturbing behavior.

In an email to parents Nov. 16, Wolf wrote: “I know I’m redundant here, but there is absolutely no threat to HS… big assumptions have been made from a few posts about social networks then the assumptions evolved into exaggerated rumors. , according to the lawsuit.

A day before the shooting, according to the trial, Crumbley tweeted: “Now I have become Death, the destroyer of worlds. See you tomorrow Oxford.”

“There is definitely a responsibility here,” Fieger said. “It’s time we stopped talking lip service to this, and we hold people accountable. If we don’t hold the Second Amendment people accountable for slaughtering our students over the past 20 years, and we’re not going to do anything about it, hold others to account. “
