Florida mass shooter Nikolas Cruz has agreed to donate his brain to science in a “unique” civil settlement reached with one of his victims, according to court papers and experts.

Cruz used an AR-15 assault rifle to massacre 17 students and staffers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14, 2018, in one of the deadliest mass shootings in the nation’s history.

An attorney for Anthony Borges, 21, who was shot five times in the attack, proposed the unusual stipulation.

“I figured if scientists studied his brain they might be able to figure out what created this monster,” Borges’ lawyer, Alex Arreaza, told Fox News Digital. “Maybe there was some kind of imbalance that caused this that we can prevent in the future.”  ... The new settlement agreement also gives Borges the right to Cruz’s name for use in movies, books and other media.  ...

In a prior settlement, the Broward County Public School District paid $26 million to victims of the shooting, $1.25 million of which went to Borges. An undisclosed settlement from the FBI for their inability to prevent Cruz’s rampage also went to Borges. ...

Just think: Li'l David Attention Hogg also was able to profit big time from the Parkland shooting without even being near it.

Maybe he should donate his brain to science, too.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
