Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old man, shot and killed 17 people on Wednesday at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Lori Alhadeff lost her daughter Alyssa during the shooting. She appeared on CNN on Thursday where she screamed at Donald Trump demanding he should do something.
“How? How do we allow a gunman to come into our children’s school?” Alhadeff asked. “How do they get through security? What security is there? There’s no metal detectors. The gunman, a crazy person, just walks right into the school, knocks on the window of my child’s door and starts shooting, shooting her and killing her!”
She then turned her anger to Trump.
“President Trump, you say what can you do?” she asked, responding to Trump’s statement earlier. “You can stop the guns from getting into these children’s hands! Put metal detectors at every entrance to the schools. What can you do? You can do a lot! This is not fair to our families and our children go to school and have to get killed! I just spent the last two hours putting the burial arrangements for my daughters funeral, who is 14! Fourteen! President Trump, please do something! Do something. action! We need it now! These kids need now!”
