    The Cruz's (Lynda, Nikolas) were a perfect victim family for a perpetrator to target. Here's why: Lynda was a widowed single mother who smoked a lot, was quite old to have Nikolas as her adopted child (her older age combined with her being a frequent smoker made it likely she'd die before reaching 70 years, which she did), had a sizable wealth left to her from her deceased husband, no other family they communicated with, and her child Nikolas was mentally unstable.

    Based on understanding, and logic, it appears that Paulo David Gold and his now ex-girlfriend Rocxanne Deschamps committed cybercrimes and other crimes to victimize and terrorize Nikolas until he either committed suicide and/or committed a malicious crime that would put him behind bars in order that they could fraudulently obtain the inheritance meant for Nikolas and his younger brother. Please read the facts below and discuss, share your thoughts. Perpetrators look for easy targets, and then make them emotionally, financially, etc dependent on the perpetrator/s via tactics such as isolation, gaslighting (if you don't know, look the term up), creating financial and emotional dependence, etc etc.

    Which perpetrators were closest to the Cruz's? Paulo David Gold (aka Paul Gold aka owner of Sport Surfaces) and Rocxanne Deschamps (Paul's ex-girlfriend whom he has a child in common with). Both Paul and Rocxanne have a long criminal history before Nikolas's school shooting.

    These crimes include for Paul:
    * smuggling his then girlfriend Rocxanne Deschamps across the Canadian border and then housing her in his home illegally for years. They took a vacation to Canada a few years back, and the Deschamps were not permitted to go back to USA because they're illegal aliens here. Rocxanne and her daughter scuba dived under a river at the border, Paul lied to the border patrol about his intentions at the border, and then picked up Rocxanne and her daughter illegally after they illegally crossed the river back into USA. That's a federal crime on all of them.
    * Trespassing (maybe Paul is someone Nikolas and his younger brother copied their trespassing behaviors from...) - see https://media.local10.com/document_dev/2018/02/22/PBSO 10.29.17_1519328906512_11700560_ver1.0.pdf
    * cybercrimes of cybersquatting and phishing. See Reverse Whois Lookup - ViewDNS.info and phishtank.com. You can find there that Paul owns radissonhoteldenver.com and radissonhoteltampa.com. The Radisson Hotel owns a Federally Registered Trademark for their company name. Therefore, Paul is cybersquatting and infringing on a Federal Trademark. On phishtank.com, some of the sites he owns are flagged as phishing (tactic used by cybercriminals for identity theft, among other crimes).
    * Contempt of court, and failure to pay child support. See Mugshots - Mugshots.com -Search Inmate Arrest Mugshots Online. Arrest Records, Criminal Records, Official Records and then Paulo Gold Mugshot 2213626 - Paulo Gold Arrest - Palm Beach County, FL - Booked on 10/05/2010 - Booked for BOOKED-COMMIT and Paulo Gold Mugshot 2211735 - Paulo Gold Arrest - Palm Beach County, FL - Booked on 7/15/2010 - Booked for -CIVIL CONTEMPT OF COURT and Paulo Gold Mugshot 2211579 - Paulo Gold Arrest - Palm Beach County, FL - Booked on 7/08/2010 - Booked for -CIVIL CONTEMPT OF COURT
    * Complaints from ex-wife, lenders, merchants, friend, and consultants about him - see eCaseView and then search for Gold (last name) Paul (first name). See Case #s 50-2018-CC-007730-XXXX-WB (his long time friend sued him for insurance fraud), 50-2013-CA-003682-XXXX-MB (foreclosure), 50-2013-AS-701062-XXXX-MB (ex-wife regarding child support complaint), 50-2012-CC-006116-XXXX-MB and 50-2012-CC-003647-XXXX-MB (landlord evicting Paul off property), 50-2010-SC-001531-XXXX-MB (sued by merchant for failure to pay many thousands of dollars owed), 50-2009-CA-008416-XXXX-MB (foreclosure), 50-2009-CA-011334-XXXX-MB (foreclosure), 50-2009-CA-001763-XXXX-MB (sued by merchant for failure to pay many thousands of dollars), etc etc.
    Additionally, one has to wonder why Paul played violent gun-based shoot-em-up video games with Nikolas (Paul's claim per the news interviews) often though Paul remarked in the news that Nikolas was not the sort of person that should ever hold a gun.
    Additionally, one has to wonder why Paul, after driving Nikolas to his mother's funeral, never saw Nikolas again. If a friend asked most anyone to drive them to their mother's funeral, it's reasonable to expect that the person would check in on their friend from time to time to given consolation and comfort.
    Additionally, Paul told Nikolas he could work at his company. Why did that never transpire?
    Additionally, no one except Paul and Rocxanne showed up to Nikolas's mother's funeral. Did she really have NO other friends? That seems unlikely for someone of her age (68). Most people have at least one friend... I strongly suspect that Paul Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps intentionally isolated the Cruz's (via cybercrimes like intercepting their calls-texts-emails-hogging their time up-social engineering, etc) to gain power/control over the Cruz's as their perpetrators.
    * Additionally, Paul has a likely fraudulently obtained professional license in New Jersey as a Certified Public Adjuster. People who have a long criminal history, such as himself, do not get approval to sit for a professional license exam because a criminal is not a professional - they lack the ethics / morals to be.
    * Additionally, Paul has applied for a professional license as a General Contractor in the State of FL. Given his long criminal history of contempt of court, failure to pay child support, smuggling illegal alien into USA and across many State borders, etc, it seems he would not meet the criteria for any professional license in the USA because he appears to be too unethical.
    * A prior consultant seems to have nailed it right in their review and their description seems to describe a psychopath (see https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Sport-Surfaces-RVW24767787.htm) which states, "He is disrespectful, rude, unappreciative and impossible to satisfy. Terrible to work for. He is greedy and cheap. He knows nothing about his field. Nothing. His technicians know more about the work than he does. He has virtually no idea what is going on anywhere on any of the jobs at any given time. He has a memory span of about 4 seconds, if you can hold his attention for that long. Do not work directly for the owner of this company, because you will hate your life after a week or two when he decides to put you on a low salary because you're a "lousy worker" when really he's just insane."
    * Just like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, etc -- at a point, when there's so many people complaining about someone for the same kind of abuses perpetrated upon them, it becomes a court of public opinion, which does turn into justice officially through our court systems.

    For Rocxanne, her crimes:
    * Committing a felony of Intent to Defraud ( see Rocxanne Deschamps Mugshot 5860746 - Rocxanne Deschamps Arrest - Palm Beach County, FL - Booked on 11/09/2011 at 18:52 - Booked for FRAUD-INSUFF FUNDS CHECK - STOP PAY WIT DEFRAUD 150 DOLS OR MORE)
    * Coming back to the USA after border control at the Canadian border a few years ago made it clear she is not to come to USA
    * Living as an illegal alien in Paul's home for many years in Florida
    * Having her children live with her in Florida as illegal aliens also
    * Having her son attend school though they were both illegal aliens, costing USA citizens tax dollars based on their fraud
    * Obtaining WIC (a welfare program intended for women with children in the USA) assistance to buy milk though her youngest child alive then was 16 years old and both of them were illegal aliens
    * Failing to list herself as the guardian of Nikolas and his younger brother after their mother supposedly asked her to be their guardian in the event she died, she Rocxanne claims she did and then died the next day. Rocxanne only claimed herself as their guardian only after Nikolas did the school shooting. What - she didn't want to take responsibility until it was in her favor (him out of the picture so she could try to collect his inheritance. Given her long history of criminal activity, her words and intentions are not very credible, and neither are Paul's, for the same reasons.

    If you're not that familiar with the damage cybercrimes, cyberstalking, harassing, etc can do to someone, please see the movie the Dark Web (documentary about fighting cybercrimes), and youtube search Tawny, cyberstalking. I truly believe that Paulo David Gold (aka Paul Gold, owner of Sport Surfaces), together with Rocxanne Deschamps, victimized and terrorized the Cruz family, especially Nikolas, to get Nikolas out of the picture via him committing suicide or a crime to put him behind bars, so they could collect his inheritance for themselves.

    It makes sense to me that all the victims of Nikolas's school shooting, along with the State of FL and the USA ought to both sue and press criminal charges against Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps for any of the ways they were involved. And we must make sure that cybercriminals get listed as Cyber Offenders (just like Sex Offenders) on a public list, and not be permitted around our children and teens, and not permitted on the internet.

    Parkland Shooting Suspect's Public Defenders Ask to Quit Case
    PUBLISHED April 24, 2019 @4:48 PM
    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The public defenders representing the suspect in last year's Florida high school massacre have made an unexpected request to withdraw from the case, saying the man will soon receive nearly a half-million dollars from his late mother's life insurance policy.
    [...]
    It's likely that the victims' families who are suing Cruz for the February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 dead will make a claim for the money. Judges will have to determine who gets it.

    Thanks for the update. I think Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps may have set Nikolas Cruz up to commit either suicide or a crime to land him in prison, so they could try to collect his inheritance for himself. Their long history of criminal history (cybersquatting, transporting illegal aliens across Canada-USA border, intent to defraud, contempt of court, failure to pay child support, etc) certainly shows they have tendencies to look for victims to perpetrate. What do you think?

    What is the mechanism by which Gold and Deschamps could collect the inheritance of another person?

    Therapists may have inflamed Parkland shooter, lawyer claims

    Apr 24, 2019

    "FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Therapists supported the use of violent video games by the teen who later killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

    They also agreed that he should get a punching bag, and they did not oppose his having an airsoft gun.

    Those are among the details that emerged in court this week about strategies therapists supposedly used to redirect Nikolas Cruz’s aggressive tendencies — outlets that lawyers argued actually inflamed, rather than reduced, his penchant for violence.

    Counselors at Henderson Behavioral Health worked closely with the Parkland school shooter and his mother from many years but offered suggestions that, in hindsight, appear questionable given Cruz’s abusiveness and his obsession with weapons.

    Mental health records are private. But David Brill, an attorney representing the father of one of the victims in the massacre, has hundreds of pages as part of the legal process in a wrongful death suit filed last year...."

    Sorry but no. This is wrong and insensitive at best. I strongly feel your anti-immigrant lean in this novel and it's attempt to justify Nikolas' actions. Thats wrong. I dont like and dont believe your conspiracy. Its highly offensive to those who lost their lives.

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I'm sorry you felt offended - that was not my intention. I do no have an anti-immigrant lean; in fact, I am an immigrant. Additionally, I am trying to help those who lost their lives, their families, their friends, and all others to keep such crimes from occuring again. While you may not like my understanding and belief about Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps, please do take some time to examine their long criminal history, and take into consideration that I've know them both personally for many years, and wish I never did. Additionally, I met Nikolas Cruz for an hour, years before the school shooting.

    Both Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps, who knew and interacted with Nikolas Cruz and his family often for many years, are on mugshots.com for a reason and the reason is because they are criminals.

    Paul Gold's crimes he's been caught for:
    cybersquatting against Radisson Hotel's federal trademark (he owns radissonhoteldenver.com, radissonhoteltampa.com), phishing (caught on phishtank.com), trespassing, contempt of court, failure to pay child support, housing an illegal alien named Rocxanne Deschamps (he's not been prosecuted yet, however, in the court records relating to both of them, you'll find that her deportation was discussed, as well as her potential deportation covered more recently in news articles), failure to let an emergency vehicle pass, failure to have a license for a motorcycle, failure to have registration for a boat, foreclosures, eviction, on and on. Complaints against Paul Gold: on glassdoor.com from his prior consultants, from the Better Business Bureau for his business Sport Surfaces, in the Palm Beach County court records from a friend he had for many years who complains Paul Gold committed insurance fraud, on and on.

    Crimes committed by Rocxanne Deschamps that she's been caught for:
    Intent to Defraud at the federal level, coming into the USA illegally and staying in the USA from the Canadian border. I caught her looking through my cellphone years ago without my permission upon returning from the bathroom (I put a passcode on it right after, and take my cellphone with me instead of leaving someone alone with it).

    These facts about Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps speak for themselves.

    In addition, I've witnessed Paulo Gold committing domestic abuse against his now ex-wife. That's why she applied for a restraining order against him. You can find that in the court records. I've witnessed Paulo Gold abusing the eldest son of his now ex-girlfriend (Rocxanne Deschamps). I've witnessed Paulo Gold doing cocaine (you can also find complaints of that in the court records).

    I hope Nikolas Cruz and his younger brother press charges against Paulo Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps for abusing their family and inciting them toward hate, as well as file civil complaints against both Paul and Rocxanne for the same. I am 99% sure that Paulo Gold, with Rocxanne Deschamps, committed ongoing cybercrimes against the Cruz's in attempts to get Nikolas Cruz gone in hopes of collecting the inheritance due him for themselves. I am also 99% sure that Paulo Gold commits cybercrimes and hires hackers to commit cybercrimes on his behalf for his own personal and financial gains. If you are unfamiliar with cybercrimes, please watch the documentary Dark Web, about fighting cybercrimes, and then the youtube video about a woman named Tawny, and her cybercrimes campaigns at .

    Both Paulo David Gold and Rocxanne Deschamps could collect an inheritance from another in the event they become that person's guardian and that person dies or goes to prison. Notice that Rocxanne Deschamps filed for guardianship the very next day after Nikolas Cruz's school shooting, claiming that Nikolas's mother, who died a few months earlier, told Rocxanne to take care of her children in the event she (Nikolas's mother) died. There was nothing in writing from Mrs. Cruz about that. Mrs. Cruz was older, smoked a lot -- was likely to die early in life, which she did. Personally, given Paulo David Gold's and Rocxanne Deschamps's long criminal history, I never want to interact with either of them, though have had to in the past, unfortunately. And I'd certainly never let them near children. It's important for the government to let us know who cyber criminals are, and who repeat criminals are, such as by designating something like Megan's Law did for listing of Sex Offenders... like Cyber Offenders and Repeat Offenders. Sometimes, people move and it's hard to keep track of their criminal history when they do, unless one knows everywhere they've lived, and looks through each place's court records.

    Paulo David Gold aka Paul Gold admits in a news article that he used to play violent shoot-em-up video games often with Nikolas Cruz, and in another news article notes that he believed Nikolas Cruz was the sort of person that should never hold a gun in his hands. Since Paulo Gold believed Nikolas should never hold a gun in his hands, why on earth did he sometimes play those video games with Nikolas? It seems that's the LAST thing any reasonable person would do in that context.

    Paulo David Gold also was asked by Nikolas Cruz to drive him to his mother's funeral, and then Paulo never saw Nikolas again -- what kind of friend takes one to their mother's funeral, and then never sees them again? What the heck? Now, it all seems like inflaming and inciting.

    To longtime friend, school shooter Nikolas Cruz was lonely, volatile, ostracized
    "Gold said that Cruz escaped his misery by playing video games for eight, 12, even 15 hours a day. Gold, who owns a film and video production company, sometimes would play a game or two with them."

    “It was kill, kill, kill, blow up something, and kill some more, all day,” he said.

    Florida school shooting: Surrogate family told police Cruz made gun threats
    Gold said he’d known Cruz for more than eight years. “He’d lose his temper, hit walls, throw things," he said. "Not the kind of kid who’d you’d put a gun in his hand.”

    "Gold said Cruz told him his mother gave him about $5,000 in cash before she died to help him get by while her estate was probated and his inheritance became available. Cruz reportedly said he had an $800,000 trust fund coming to him, according to the Miami Herald."

    To longtime friend, school shooter Nikolas Cruz was lonely, volatile, ostracized
    "according to Paul Gold, who lived next door to the Cruz family and remained in touch with Nikolas up until his mother’s funeral in November."
    -----------------------------

    While not in the newspapers, apparently Paulo David Gold had told Nikolas Cruz to come work for his company, and then that never happened (I know Paulo David Gold for many years, though I wish I didn't, and I met Nikolas Cruz for about an hour, years before the school shooting). It'd be great to know why that never happened - did criminalist Paulo David Gold abandon Nikolas Cruz as a friend, or was it for some other reason?

    Florida Supreme Court says governor can suspend sheriff over Parkland shooting questions

    April 23, 2019

    "...DeSantis suspended Israel in January over mishandling of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which killed 17, and the 2017 shooting at the Fort Lauderdale Airport, which killed five people.

    “Today's @flcourts opinion leaves no doubt of my authority to suspend a government official for neglect of duty and incompetence. Scott Israel failed to protect the families and students of Broward County and I look forward to the @FLSenate resuming the process of formal removal,” DeSantis tweeted Tuesday. ..."

    Florida Supreme Court Rules Against Parkland Sheriff

    April 26, 2019

    "The Florida Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled against a sheriff who fought his removal from office after the governor claimed he failed to prevent last year’s Parkland school shooting.

    Florida’s highest court agreed that Gov. Ron DeSantis was within his authority to suspend Scott Israel as Broward County sheriff earlier this year. The justices noted that under the Florida Constitution, the state Senate is responsible for deciding whether the removal should be permanent.

    “Today’s Florida Supreme Court opinion leaves no doubt of my authority as governor to suspend a government official for neglect of duty and incompetence,” DeSantis said in a prepared statement. “Scott Israel failed in his duties to protect the families and students of Broward County, and the time for delay tactics is at an end. I look forward to the Florida Senate resuming the process of formal removal.”..."

    Prosecutors say changing Cruz's lawyers will unnecessary delay trial

    April 29, 2019

    "FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Prosecutors are pushing back against an effort by the Broward County Public Defender's Office to drop Parkland gunman Nikolas Cruz as a client because he may be entitled to a significant inheritance.

    In court filing last week, the State Attorney's Office said a change in representation could substantially delay the trial, which is set for early next year....

    ...prosecutors said the cost of the complex case would far exceed any windfall Cruz could obtain. Furthermore, prosecutor have cast doubt on whether Cruz will actually receive the money because the estate of Lynda Cruz is the subject multiple civil lawsuits. Those lawsuits have been brought by the estates of some of the victims of school shooting...

    Several parents of the victims of the Parkland school shooting have criticized the move by the Public Defender's Office, saying attorneys there have known about Cruz's potential inheritance for months."

    Officials: Pasco SRO Deputy Accidentally Discharged Gun in School Cafeteria
    PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident at Weightman Middle School in Wesley Chapel after a School Resource Officer deputy accidentally discharged his firearm.

    Pasco resource officer's gun goes off, hits cafeteria wall at Weightman Middle School
    The firearm was holstered and fired into a cafeteria wall while the deputy was leaning against it, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. No one was injured.

    School Resource Officer's gun accidentally fires in cafeteria of Wesley Chapel middle school
    Deputies say the SRO was in the cafeteria, leaning against the wall when his holstered, duty-issued firearm accidentally discharged into the wall behind him. The gun fired directly into the wall and no students were in danger, according to the Sheriff's Office. There were no injuries to any students, the staff or the School Resource Officer.

    Deputies: Pasco school officer's gun discharges in cafeteria, no one injured
    Shortly after the incident, the Florida Education Association released a statement on Twitter saying "This should serve as a cautionary note before the Florida House takes up #SB7030 which seeks to put more firearms on the Florida's public school campuses."
    The Florida House was taking up
    SB-7030 Tuesday afternoon.

    Judge exonerates mental health workers in Stoneman Douglas tragedy (with clip)

    April 30, 2019

    "The mental health professionals who treated the Parkland school shooter before his murderous rampage had no legal responsibility to warn anyone that he was violent, a judge ruled Tuesday.

    Broward Circuit Judge Patti Englander Henning threw out lawsuits against Henderson Behavioral Health, which treated gunman Nikolas Cruz before he shot 34 people — 17 fatally — at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018.

    Florida law is clear, the judge said: Mental health workers have no duty to protect the public from possible harm by someone they have no control over.

    Unlike other medical doctors, who can rely on diagnostic tools to confirm diseases, mental health professionals cannot accurately predict whether a person will be violent, she explained...."

    Deputy’s gun fires in Pasco middle school cafeteria
    April 30, 2019
    On a day when state lawmakers prepared to debate whether to allow teachers to carry guns at school, a Pasco County Sheriff’s deputy working as a resource officer at Weightman Middle School in Wesley Chapel had his gun discharge from his holster as he leaned against a cafeteria wall.
    [...]
    “We want to again make it clear that the weapon discharged directly into the wall and no students were in danger,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook notification to the public, in which it also stated an investigation would take place.

    Members of the community took issue with that assertion.

    “Pure incompetence and stupidity,” Justin Zloty commented on the Sheriff’s Office post. “'No students were in danger’ is a false statement. All those students were in danger of losing their lives - they were just very fortunate."

    “That’s unacceptable!” added Jessica Stafford-Walters. " Looks like someone needs some more training on weapon safety. Your mention that no students where in danger is incorrect. When a loaded gun goes off in a room of students, even if it went into a wall, that is still dangerous. Don’t try and down play this incident as if it wasn’t that dangerous.

    Grieving families fight public defender’s bid to drop Parkland shooter Cruz as client

    MAY 01, 2019

    "Family members still grieving for loved ones killed in Florida’s worst school shooting on Wednesday urged a judge to deny the public defender’s request to drop confessed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High shooter Nikolas Cruz as a client because he’s in line for a hefty inheritance.

    “To make us wait longer for a judgment, it’s just unbearable,” said Debbie Hixon, whose husband, Christopher Hixon, was the athletic director at the Parkland school. He was killed during the February 2018 mass murder that also left 16 others dead and 17 wounded...."

    Ex-deputy Scot Peterson says he's no coward, and he's not to blame in Parkland shooting

    May 2, 2019

    "Former Broward Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson says he was improperly blamed for the Parkland high school massacre and that he actually acted appropriately that fateful day.

    In a 14-page report, which Peterson sent to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission, the former school resource officer says he isn’t the coward he was made out to be in the commission’s report.

    He says he followed the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s training and policies for handling an active-shooter crisis....

    Peterson’s 14-page rebuttal stands in stark conflict with the findings of the MSD Commission, which investigated law enforcement’s response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting in which 17 people were killed and 17 injured...."

    Zachary Cruz, brother of Parkland gunman, settles federal harassment lawsuit for $3,000

    May 3, 2019

    "FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Zachary Cruz, the younger brother of Parkland mass shooter Nikolas Cruz, has settled a federal lawsuit that accused the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, prosecutors and a judge of “torturing” him and violating his civil rights, according to court documents.

    The lawsuit was filed in March 2018 after Zachary Cruz was arrested for trespassing after he skateboarded onto the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where his brother allegedly killed 17 students and employees on Feb. 14, 2018. Nikolas Cruz, now 20, is facing the death penalty.

    Court documents show that the case was closed May 1 and that Zachary Cruz, a one-time Lantana-area resident who now lives in Virginia, will receive a settlement of $3,000.

    The lawsuit, filed by Virginia-based Nexus Derechos Humanos, claimed that the younger Cruz was the victim of “an extortive campaign of intimidation because of the identity of his brother.”..."

    Judge in Parkland shooting case won't hold Sun Sentinel in contempt

    May 13, 2019

    "FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) —....Judge Elizabeth Scherer on Monday dismissed the Broward County School Board's request that she find the South Florida Sun Sentinel in contempt for publishing redacted material from an August report about Nikolas Cruz's educational background. The district argued the material was redacted to protect his privacy.

    The paper argued the district failed to properly redact the material, making it viewable by anyone with Microsoft Word. The redacted material showed the district hadn't gotten Cruz the mental health treatment he needed before the February 2018 shooting that left 17 dead.

    The paper won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage."
