Prosecutors released the videos on Wednesday.ikolas Cruz knew everyone would know his name after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
In three chilling cellphone video clips, at least one of which appears to have been recorded on the day of the Feb. 14 shooting, Cruz, 19, calmly outlines his plans.
“When you see me on the news you’ll know who I am,” he says, chuckling. “You’re all going to die. Pew pew pew pew pew. Ah yeah. Can’t wait.”
Prosecutors released the videos on Wednesday.“My name is Nik, and I’m going to be the next school shooter of 2018,” he said. “My goal is at least 20 people.”
Cruz killed 17 and wounded 17. He faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder, which requires prosecutors to prove the crime was premeditated.
That job, according to the father of one victim, was made simple by the statements made in the videos.
“Today is the day. The day that it all begins. The day of my massacre shall begin,” Cruz says. “All the kids in school will run in fear and hide. From the wrath of my power they will know who I am.”
Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was among the dead, said Cruz can now rule out an insanity plea.
It just shows this kid was competent. This whole thing was premeditated murder,” he said. “This kid knew exactly what he was doing.”
Cruz offered only vague hints about his motive.
I’ve had enough being told what to do and when to do. … Telling me I’m an idiot and a dumbass,” he says. “In real life, you’re all the dumbass. You’re all stupid and brainwashed.”He also singled out a girl or woman named “Angie,” vowing to always love her.“I hope to see you in the afterlife,” he says.
Angie’s identity was not immediately clear — the name did not belong to any of the murdered or wounded victims.
