After the disastrous response by the Uvalde police the news just keep coming….and coming….
The Texas House has proved just how cowardly even the Congress can be….in a hearing about the shootings and death….it seems that parents of the dead are intimidating…..
The family of a child killed in the Uvalde mass shooting was forced to leave a meeting about the massacre after an official complained that they were “intimidated” by them.
Journalists, a local chaplain and the relative of a victim were all asked to leave Uvalde City Hall on Monday afternoon ahead of a closed-door hearing before the Texas House of Representatives, according to CNN.
CNN reporter Shimon Prokupec tweeted that they were removed “because people are intimidated by us”.
“Texas legislators are meeting here with law enforcement behind closed doors,” he tweeted.
“The fire marshal also told a local chaplain and father of a victim to exit from the building.”
The parents are not allowed to sit in these meetings to get an explanation why this happened and keeps happening.
Typical Right wing cowardice!
It appears the the school district’s police chief has been sanctioned…..
The Uvalde school district’s police chief was put on leave Wednesday following allegations that he erred in his response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School last month. Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Superintendent Hal Harrell said that he put Pete Arredondo on administrative leave and that another officer would assume the embattled chief’s duties. In a statement, Harrell did not give a reason for removing Arredondo, the AP reports, but he said it remains unclear when district officials will know the outcome of the investigation into the shooting.
Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told a state Senate hearing on Tuesday that Arredondo—the on-site commander—made “terrible decisions” as the massacre unfolded on May 24 and that the police response was an “abject failure.” Arredondo has said he didn’t consider himself in charge of the response to the shooting, in which 19 students and two teachers were killed.
This situation continues to unfold and the answers are not showing any competence as law enforcement officers.
