Nikolas Cruz Spared The Death Penalty For School Massacre Shooting


Nikolas Cruz, 24, was spared the death penalty after being sentenced to life without parole for a 2018 murder.

On Feb 14, 2018, Cruz murdered 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Cruz pleaded guilty last year to the murders. He said he chose Valentine’s Day to make it impossible for students to celebrate the holiday ever again.

The three-month trial has come to an end that consisted of graphic videos and photos and aftermath of the massacre. This penalty phase trial was to determine if Cruz would be sentenced to death or life in prison for the massacre, he committed at age 19.

“Even the death penalty was not enough for me,” Manuel Oliver, whose 17-year-old son, Joaquin, was among the victims said. “The way that Joaquin died … the amount of suffering and pain, the shooter will have never received that punishment.”
