Fiery 'FBI Needs a Complete Overhaul': Pirro Blasts Bureau for Inaction on School Shooter Tips
In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed the FBI, saying the bureau needs a "complete cleansing" after apparently missing a credible tip about Florida high school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz.
"The killing of young innocents, their teachers and coaches, gunned down at school... lays at the hands of the FBI," she said. "The potential slaughter twice reported to the FBI could have been prevented, had they bothered to lift a finger."
Pirro said Cruz posted "I want to be a professional school shooter" on a YouTube page, and the comment was reported to authorities.

She said one of the bureau's responses is that agents are "working within their guidelines."
"Do the guidelines tell them to ignore school shooters?" she asked.
Pirro also criticized FBI Director Christopher Wray, who said he "regrets the additional pain" caused by inaction by the bureau.
"How about you regret that you did not stop the massacre," Pirro said. "The FBI needs a complete overhaul."
