UPDATE on Uvalde, May 27. Even the Washington Post,
a CIA rag owned by Jeff Bezos who also has the CIA cloud contract,
could not keep the news of the bizarre, if not criminal, behavior of law
enforcement at Uvalde quiet. Per the WaPo:
The shooter was “not confronted by anybody” as he walked into Robb Elementary School, a regional
director of the Texas Department of Public Safety said at a news
conference Thursday, contradicting officials’ earlier statements that an
officer “engaged” the shooter beforehand. Officers arrived four
minutes after the gunman entered the school, the regional director
said, but remained outside the classroom until a heavily armed tactical
team arrived about an hour in…
and from another WaPo update:
say 18-year-old Salvador Rolando Ramos’s rampage in Uvalde, Tex., began
late Tuesday morning when he shot his grandmother in the face and drove
her truck toward Robb Elementary School. He crashed close to school
grounds and shot at two people nearby before going on foot to Robb, a
state public safety official said Thursday.
safety officials initially said Ramos stormed the school despite
encountering a school police officer and offered conflicting information
about whether the two exchanged gunfire. But Victor Escalon Jr., South
Texas regional director for the state Department of Public Safety, said
at a news conference Thursday that officials’ early reports were wrong and that Ramos was not challenged as he entered.
“walked in unobstructed,” he said. Interviews, video and emergency line
audio show how about an hour passed before officers stopped the gunman.
Yet another live WaPo update,
after a vague discussion of the possibility that “negotiations” look
place during the hour in which the shooter was active inside the school,
Authorities confirmed Thursday that the
gunman spent about an hour inside the school before officers from a
tactical team got into a classroom and shot him. Meanwhile, parents
outside pleaded with officers to let them in so they could save their
children, according to videos from the scene.
“The people of
Uvalde, of Texas, and of the nation deserve an accurate account of what
transpired,” [Congressmember] Castro wrote.
have not included information covered in alternative media indicating
that an active shooter exercise was done at the Robb school in Uvalde 2
months earlier. Whether or not that is true, I think everyone can agree
that there is absolutely no acceptable explanation for police to fail
to engage an active shooter in an elementary school for one hour while
keeping parents out—especially since the alleged shooter was eventually
killed by police, and was known to have killed his grandmother before
driving to the school.
I don’t know if the shooter was drugged,
mind controlled, a trained assassin, or something else. What I do know
is that police grossly failed to do their duty. Other adults were
prevented from entering, both to stop the carnage and be witnesses to
what was occurring.
And widespread calls for gun control
followed immediately after this dreadful massacre. Joe Biden and Greg
Abbott are planning Uvalde photo-ops.
How long will Americans
allow such events to continue, without incising the abscess and
understanding the pus at the root of school shootings?
