Was Nikolas Cruz known to have obsessed over Columbine or was he known to be a member of this forum?

He was clearly obsessed with guns, and said he wanted to be a professional school shooter. BUT even if he had never heard about Columbine(which is highly unlikely) the media will say he was obsessed with Columbine.

I don't think he has been connected to the forum.

I agree, the boys got what they wanted and even if the Cruz wrote “don’t try to compare me to those nerds in Colorado with their junk guns ahd German music” people would still compare.

Well it is true that all roads seem to lead back to Columbine when the media is talking about another school shooting, whether it really does or not.

I actually think its because the mere mention of Columbine is guaranteed to bring more viewers/readers etc.

They even made a point to interview people from Columbine. Like this is a big tragedy these kids from the actual school are doing something about it but wait what do the kids from Columbine think???They definitely have an opinion!!!

I don't get why people keep asking if Nick was a member here. Plenty of school shootings happened before without people asking the question.

I think it stems from the fact that the last two recent shooters have been members here.

It was a Zero Hour Columbine music video, but I’m not sure of the exact title.

Nikolas Cruz studied quite a few mass shooting's as his internet search history shows Columbine searches  
Columbine search phrases that he used
"Columbine diary"
"Columbine documentaries"
"Columbine/Pumped up kicks"

other cases that he looked at were.

> The Aurora theater shooting took a screenshot of the Wikipedia page
>The Marshall county high school shooting
>Red lake high school shooting
>Virginia tech shooting ( search phrases used "Video's made by VT shooter" "VT shooting documentaries" )
>Jokala high school shooting ( Search phrase used "Pekka Shooting Finland")
>He also commented on a video about Elliot Rodger

He was cognizant of Columbine and had researched it but he was far from a fanatic. He seemed more interested in mass shootings as a whole rather than Columbine being his preoccupation (which I'm sure the media would love to portray him as).

But how much (little) does it take for any shooter to be considered obsessed with Columbine? To me it has similarities as the based on a true story - trope we so often see in horror movies. "The killer was obsessed with Columbine" - I guess it probably sounds juicy and will draw attention and clicks to the story.

According to Columbine "researchers" (*cough, cough* Dave Cullen) and the media: not much
