Twelve juries selected last week to decide whether Florida school shooter Nicholas Cruz will be executed are exposed to horrifying images and emotional testimony, but only in emotional distress. You have to deal with it.
The jury and its agents will visit the bloody building of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where Cruz killed 17 people in 2018. They will watch a graphic security video of a teenager shot in white. They will hear tear testimony from survivors and parents. And they will be told not to talk to anyone about it. If the jury needs help, they are themselves.
Florida and most states do not offer post-trial mental health counseling.
