Nancy Grace on Texas school shooting, shooter’s messages: ‘We are failing parents’

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Fox Nation host Nancy Grace expressed outrage at the inability to identify the Texas school shooter before the killing of 19 children and two adults. Writing in “Fox & Friends” Thursday, Grace described Salvador Ramos’ “very disturbing” social media posts that surfaced after the Robb Elementary School shooting.


NANCY GRACE: Three messages show that he knew very well what he was going to do. He wasn’t crazy. He did not suffer from any type of fugue state. He posted that he was going to shoot a school after he shot his grandmother in the face. He took a backpack and a gun he had bought.

He posted pictures of the guns. He posted pictures of ammo bags. These guns were the equivalent of the Vietnamese type M-16 semi-automatic weapons. He heads for the school backpack, weapon visible, enters through a side door, a back hallway, and barricades himself in the classroom. This guy is so full of hate and evil that he shoots little children.

Can I tell you how many times I’ve passed the children’s school since it happened? Check if doors were open or if a criminal could enter. And I feel like we’re letting the parents down. With these posts I wonder why Facebook, where it was posted on a direct message – it wasn’t a public post – couldn’t have picked it up based on just the words “shoot the school” . They watch for other malware. Why not that?
