Roses that had been brought to honor love on that Valentine’s Day in 2018 lay withered, their dried and cracked petals scattered across classroom floors still smeared with the blood of victims gunned down by a former student more than four years earlier.

I just want to say that they definitely sent the right person to report on this. Her observations are so thorough and her descriptions are so vivid. The little details she recalled painted a visceral picture of the true depravity of the events that occurred. Amazing journalism

@lianda jane Genuinely what? This is one of the few instances where you can’t even say that, this was perfectly done journalism lmao. She painted the picture of the crime scene amazingly well Also really? The parkland shooting doesn’t need to be news? I guess it doesn’t matter then if 17 children get murdered 😂

@Catapillargirl 20 my understanding is that everything was left because this was one of the few times the murderer comes out alive. If he was murdered, they would have torn the building down shortly after it happened.

It's even more eerie to think that many of the survivors have moved on to colleges and graduated, while victims who had their own hopes and dreams remain frozen in time; their blood literally still remains in those hallways and classrooms that they died in. Rest in peace little angels 🌹❤️

Just because someone wasn't killed doesn't mean their life will be like it was before, there's people that have debilitating injuries, that if it doesn't handicap them, they'll have chronic pain to the day they die.

@Bel Fiore When something like this happens and agencies like the FBI and local sheriffs were tipped off about the killer beforehand, there should be Senate hearings where these bureaucrats have to defend their incompetence and laziness within the performance of their duties. The FBI has a long history of being incompetent, they dropped the ball a few years before, when the Boston Marathon bombing happened after the FBI terminated surveillance on those two brothers. The FBI should have to lay out their case and justify why they felt it was time to end surveillance when they did and let the Senate judge whether they acted competently.

My hubby s friend and fellow navy serviceman Jonathan was killed in the Aurora Shootings ...hubby couldn't stomach to watch The Black Knight Rises because he thought of his friend, WE watched it together BUT I told hubby that his friend would want him to watch it cuz his friend was always talking about living not surviving ....after the movie he bragged about all the stuff they did serving together ...sometimes bad things happen ..the BEST revenge is to keep moving forward , as Proof Dumbledore said to Harry Potter " It's best not to dwell on dreams and forget to live" .

@Ken Turberrt The fact that you seem to be able to conflate a stupid horror movie set to a real life place where horrible tragedy took place, where real people took their last breath is a little odd, dude. Emotions should go along with hearing about the scene, that's the huge difference between a movie & this. This should make you feel a genuine emotion that a movie doesn't make you feel. If it doesn't, well.. that's not the flex most males seem to think it is.

@flowersarenice I look at the way New Zealand handled their shooting - not publicizing the shooter’s name or photo, trying not to give him any recognition - and it feels like we make things so much worse in America by sensationalizing these things into a media event for people to fawn over. There’s no reason this dude’s face should be plastered everywhere right now - exactly bc of the types of comments you mention

Thanks for saying "got rid of my .0001% sympathy for the shooter" because the same happened to me and it kind of feels relieving I am not the only one! Not through this video but through the families' testimonies and now I cannot stand when people comment things like "sOcIetY hAs fAiLEd tHiS pOoR yOuNg BoY" under videos that highlight how the murderers life was, beginning when he was born. They write things like "I see a kid with sad eyes" and such bullsh.. LIKE SERIOUSLY what is wrong with some people how can they feel so much pain for a person who did this... so many people have a hard hard life and had a hard childhood or whatsoever and even if they start taking drugs or sth like that they do not decide to become a mass murderer terrorist.

Even if you weren't involved, it leaves a massive impact on the world. Please stay safe everyone. If you are in need of help or just need someone to talk to, please reach out to someone. There will always be a lending hand, there will always be someone who cares, even if you think there isn't.

@AnnabellDoll totally understand your point of view, walking through the scene is just too personal. I’m a mom and I would lose my mind thinking anyone is walking right past my child’s blood and belongings. I think they did this because of the impact this will cause for the jury, they are seeking a death penalty and reporters need to send a message to anyone watching. Monsters like him will face same consequences.

@Michelle Delamatter But it will keep happening. Being morbid and showing scenes of horror will even maybe make other kids want to do the same thing again..That's exactly what this kid did. He kept watching videos and documentaries and filling up stupid ideas he got from media reports etc...... when you have that low selfsteam and got nothing to loose you start wanting attention. And that is exactly what he is getting. No one can say his name and not know who he is now. Let's see who the next school shooter will be now? Nothing has happend in 20+ years hey don't forget Uvalde on your way out😠😡

Thank you for walking through the crime scene, Christina. Your descriptions are vivid. I cannot imagine what those kids went through on that day. I’m sure you saw some poignant tragic moments in that classroom. Blood spatter always leaves a significant trail. I wonder how many of the victims family members were able to view the school rooms without feeling more grief than they have already experienced. It takes courage and fortitude to live through such an event. It’s almost too much to ask of them.

To think all this misery is because of one person, I'm normally pro-life but I can't think of a better argument for pro-abortion then Nicholas Cruz, if only his prostitute & drug addicted mother had an abortion, think how different life would be with 17 people living their lives & family members not living with chronic depression day in and day out because of the loss of their loved ones.

The thought of going into that building brings me to tears. I’ve been thinking about the jurors, seeing the exact spots where these beautiful children were senselessly murdered… and envisioning each of their faces. Not to mention, replaying the sounds in their heads as they walk through. This building was filled with laughter, happiness, dreams and goals - now it’s the place where these children’s souls left their bodies and went to Heaven. It should not have happened!!!!! I pray for the healing of these jurors and hope they know it’s ok to feel grief, loss and devastation. They are human beings, and I hope the courts offer them the support and therapy they may need. How badly I know we all wish we had the power to reverse time and stop evil from entering. 😰

The order in which they presented the witnesses makes a lot of sense now. The trial was easy to follow when they walked through floor 1, 2 and 3. The jury visited the building only after learning the faces and fates of each victim and hearing a testimony from their parents as well. Must have been very impactful to be in the building 12 after all that

@Justin Cheney the scene is preserved for the exact topic this video is about, for the jury to tour the school. This was obviously preserved as a crime scene because that’s what it was. They caught him alive, they knew from the very beginning he would be on trial for the death penalty. Preserving the crime scene gave the jurors a first hand look at the place 17 children were murdered in cold blood in hopes they would be convinced to sentence him to death. Hopefully they make the right choice.

It’s a good thing they kept it intact. Once a tragedy is cleaned up and remodeled people most often forget. If you leave intact I feel like the impact is bigger. It makes a huge difference. It’s reality, not a dream where you can wake up and it’s no longer there anymore. Remember those souls. They deserve for someone to talk about it as this reporter did. My heart goes out to everyone who was impacted that day especially the students that were left with real scars and trauma and the parents trying to pick up the pieces. 💛🙏🏾🕊

I can imagine everything she is describing in the “freshman” building (1200) as I used to go to Stoneman Douglas and had classes in that freshman building. I graduated in 2017. This absolutely breaks my heart. To think that if my family did not move away from that area, my little sister would have been a freshman and in that building. Those were her classmates and friends who lost their lives. Hits home. I saw snap chat stories from that day from students and they were horrific. Can’t imagine still seeing the blood splattered and stains everywhere. I saw a classroom that was shot up on the first floor and showed my parents where i used to sit. Gives me the chills.

I'm sure those jurors will be traumatized by what they saw today, but I think it is necessary to see the horror those kids went through in their final moments.

In a way this is what he wanted. He wanted to become famous, and that everybody will remember him. I have the feeling that it has not completely worked to his liking, as the reality of solitary confinement has hit, but that's just my guess. It would make sense to me that the restrictions of being in jail would get him down. Also, the only thing that has seemed to move him (in my opinion of course) in an emotional way is when texts messages to the girl he liked were shown. Maybe he thought that doing this would impress her, as she had previously rejected him-she had a different boyfriend even and told Nikolas so. Well, it hasn't worked, and this girl is never going to accept him, and he is never going to have the opportunity to get ten feet close to this girl, nor speak to her, nor see her, as it should be.

It may not play out how this evil murderer intended, his fame and notoriety he wanted so badly. Preserving the classrooms will make fresh in the jurors minds the unspeakable evil he committed that day. With never a hint of the post rampage ramblings, in fake whispered voice he pretended to his interrogator later.

When she said the blood was still splattered on the walls it shocked me those jurors got to see the aftermath of a nightmare its been sealed up for four years it had to feel creepy when they first opened those doors and the first juror walked in this case is what the death penalty is all about for all of those who say the death penalty is wrong and cruel maybe you should ask to see what the jurors saw when they walked into the school and seen the blood of the victims on the walls and floors 4 years after they were slaughtered and buried for no reason he will get death but then the appeals process will start and the familys will be drug threw the dirt for the next 20 years nick cruz will outlive some of the victims family while he waits and they wont get to see justice served its so sad our laws need to change!!

I had no idea they kept the crime scene intact four and half years later. I couldn’t imagine being one of those jurors bi wouldn’t be able to be composed. Listening to the officers, the other first responders, the teachers, the students who amazingly survived, and the loved ones who lost their family members especially the parents of the children who died. Then going to the scene of this senseless MASSACRE! I just couldn’t.

God be with those jurors who have to see it. Be with the grieving families, rescue workers, doctors, nurses, and coroners. I’m so sick of these kind of cases. I support owning guns. It’s a small few that abuse that right. Those that abuse it, leave very tragic, life altering consequences. Those that get guns illegally don’t care about gun laws. Even with gun laws in place, you can’t prevent someone who’s evil from doing evil. Look at Boston Marathon.

@Victoria T The biggest problem was, even after security notified. They didn’t go in for another 15 to 20 minutes. By then the shooter was gone.

@Lake ​ I think there are a lot of undiagnosed mental illnesses that result in tragedies like this. Abuse at home, bullying at school, or a slew of other things kids that age are going through and feel they have no other outlet. On the extreme end are people who are so mentally unstable that there’s no reasoning with them and violence is their only release.

I can't imagine how hard it is for anyone to go through that and all of the students that still go there but I think what gets me the most is the fact that the teachers and the students that were freshmen when the shooting happened had to live with going there for the following years. At this point none of the students that go there would have been there when the shooting happened but I'm sure some of them had siblings and maybe friends and other family that were victims. I will never understand how someone can just go into a school and kill a bunch of kids or anyone for that matter but especially kids. I don't care how old the shooter or whoever is, the fact that they wake up one morning and decide that they are going to go rip apart so many lives is beyond me.

Is it typical for a crime scene(especially such a large scale one) to be preserved in that way? I understand why it was done and I can appreciate the usefulness in being able to literally take the jury to the scene and show them the results. Is the building still in use though, and are children still attending school on the same grounds or have they relocated? I know it’s not a risk to the students but it’s just … a grim thought.

As grateful as I am that this building still exists and the jury can do a walk-through to accurately understand what happened, I’m also 100% positive that serving justice to this one shooter has now turned into a graphic circus that will justify and give instruction to dozens of other shooters who will want to top him. I have a real problem with how we put shooters names out there, right away start diagnosing them and talking about their family life and their childhood, and then we just constantly ignore the fact but other shooters later on find this exciting and inspiring. Because we talk so much about the shooter in public there are average people out there that feel like they empathize andIdentify with the shooter. And there are people crazy enough to want that kind of attention even if it’s bad attention. If this trial had to happen I wish it wouldn’t have happened on television or with so much news footage. It’s not helpful to the larger goal of preventing things like this in other places.

For those offended at how long the proceeding are taking and the scope of the evidence, they’re trying to make sure to clear any trace of insanity on Nickolas’ behalf. You see Nickolas’ plan was to eventually get out with an insanity plea today, tomorrow, or somewhere in the future. By nailing every nail in his coffin they will make sure any parole is avoided or any legal loophole he may attempt in the future. I’d like them to show more of Nickolas’ face on the news, get the bois in his neighboring cells heated either to reorganize the pecking order or to bust his virginal bussy.

One can only hope their souls are resting in peace and not trapped in that building forever . Unfortunately after a tragic death or murder, a lot of people don’t move on and they get stuck. I bet that building is infested with lost souls and so much pain and emotion. Kudos to her and max respect for have been brave enough to go inside and report back just how gruesome it really was .

I didn’t know the building has been sealed. I don’t know how it can possibly reopen. The descriptions are so vivid and easy to visualize. Valentine’s Day will forever be tainted and a day of reflection for every single parent, student and faculty. I pray that some kind of memorial can be put in place to keep the names of the 17 alive, loudly remembered, drowning out the name that deserves to be obliterated and forgotten. God help them all.

Not only was it Valentine's Day. Peter Wang was killed on the eve before Chinese New Year. It is a very important day in Chinese culture where family members travel to get together to celebrate and close out the year. Wang's mother had to cancel their Chinese New Year's Eve celebration. In Western culture, it is the equivalent of a death on the eve before Christmas and canceling Christmas celebrations altogether, taking down all decorations, putting away prepared food, returning presents, etc. From this day forward, the eve before Chinese New Year will always be a reminder of her son's murder and any plans to celebrate Chinese New Year will be cancelled. Hui Wang was inconsolable while her niece translated and read out her victim impact statement.

I don’t know how I would feel if the dried blood and body fluids of my child were still in that building even though I understand why. Also to know the building may be demolished with part of their bodies is not how I would want the remains to end up. Maybe thinking too much here but it doesn’t seem honorable to mix with concrete dust and other rubble. Maybe they have another plan for them and their personal items.
