Nikolas Cruz, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooter, doesn’t deserve a second chance at life due to the fact of the many lives he ended during his shooting spree. Even the relatives of his victims still demand to see him executed after he begs for forgiveness in court.
The dad of two Nikolas’ victims said, “they’re not buying Cruz’s apologies on Wednesday, and they believe he should not be given another chance as his trial approaches,” according to TMZ.
Max Schachter, the father of Alex Schachter, 14, states unequivocally that Cruz “is a cruel killer who deserves to die.” Max also feels his request for a second chance is “ridiculous” and that he should face the death penalty.
Tony Montalto, whose 14-year-old daughter Gina was among those killed, also rejects Cruz’s apology, stating… “If he truly cared about our families, he would not have murdered our loved ones.”
According to Tony, Cruz did not give his daughter a chance when he shot her four times; so, why should he be given another opportunity at life???
As previously reported, Nikolas amended his plea to guilty Wednesday and expressed his regret and love for the families of his victims, while pleading for a second opportunity and making it clear he does not want to face the death penalty.
Tony, who was in court to hear Cruz’s mea culpa, describes it as “ludicrous” and “painful.” He wants Cruz prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law to avoid future mass killings.
Cruz faces life in prison or the death sentence after pleading guilty to 34 counts — 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder — and while he believes his destiny should be decided by his family, it seems as though Cruz may not agree with their decision.
