Turns out the FBI was warned about Iowa trans shooter in November but they didn’t follow up…

The FBI was warned about the Iowa trans shooter, who killed one and injured seven others, in November of last year but they didn’t follow up on the warning.

In short, Dylan Butler was part of a Discord chatroom called “School Massacres Discussion” and he caught the attention of one of the other users. That person sent a tip to the FBI and an agent reached out to get more information.

They sent screenshots of the chatroom to the agent via email and never heard back.

Here’s more via Daily Mail:

Hours before the shooting, the gunman posted a TikTok posing in what appeared to be the school bathroom, with the caption: ‘Now we wait.’

The video was accompanied by the song ‘Stray Bullet’ by KMFDM, the same song used on the website of one of the shooters of the notorious Columbine High School massacre.

The Discord account also appeared to post about the shooting moments before Butler opened fire.

‘I’m f***ing nervous, I’m the bathroom gearing up,’ the user wrote, according to screenshots seen by the outlet.

‘There’s a n—– in the bathroom, I need him to leave so I can assemble my guns’ the account wrote two minutes later.

‘The user was also part of a chatroom dedicated to discussing school shootings called “School Massacres Discussion,”‘ a Discord user who saw the user in the chat told NBC.

The Discord user said they had flagged the chatroom to the FBI in November, after which an FBI agent reached out over email and asked for more information.

The user emailed the FBI agent screenshots of the server but did not hear back. The chatroom was closed before the shooting.

If only that agent had pursued this in November they could have likely stopped this school shooting. So much for ‘see something, say something’.
