The families of most of those killed and wounded in the 2018 Florida high school massacre announced Monday have reached a multi-million dollar settlement with the federal government over the FBI’s failure to stop the gunman even though it had received information he intended to attack.
Attorneys for 16 of the 17 killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and some of those wounded said they have reached a monetary settlement with the government over the FBI’s failure to investigate a tip it received about a month before the massacre.
The 17th family chose not to sue.

I don’t understand Family #17’s decision. That would be a good follow up story.
OK, what heads rolled at the FBI.
We’ve seen all the instigation and entrapment stories. Now it’s time for “We, The Sheeple” to lower the boom on the FBI as an organization.
Perhaps in needs to be reformulated into strictly a technical assistance to the appropriate agencies of the State’s.
Perhaps the Secret Service can take over it’s duties as “law enforcement”.
