CM – Shocking video shows the accused Parkland school shooter attacking a prison officer

0

A shocking new surveillance video shows the moment when accused Parkland School shooter Nikolas Cruz assaulted an officer in Broward County Jail in 2018 – around nine months after the deadly spree that left 17 people dead.

Cruz, who was charged with first degree murder on February 14, 2018, when he was shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, appears in the prison cafeteria, according to footage posted on YouTube by Law & Crime Run in a circle.

After a few minutes you can see Cruz talking to the guard, known as Sgt. Raymond Beltran, who is sitting in the corner of the cafeteria.

The November 13, 2018 video has no sound, but the accused killer shakes the finger at the officer before lunging at him and wrestling him to the ground while swinging at him.

Beltran eventually hits Cruz walking to the other side of the room and lying face down on the floor after the security guard pulled a stun gun, as the footage shows.

The video was played by prosecutors in court on Wednesday during Cruz’s first in-person appearance since the coronavirus pandemic broke out.

In stark contrast to the video attack, Cruz sat quietly, tied up and in an orange jumpsuit, during the 30-minute appearance in court. Defense attorney David Wheeler told District Judge Elizabeth Sherer that Beltran previously mistreated Cruz and that he responded to the mistreatment.

Prosecutor Maria Schneider asked the judge to provide full medical records for Cruz to determine if she made the allegations of abuse by Beltran.

Cruz, 22, faces a potential death sentence if convicted in the bloody shootout, one of the deadliest in US history.
