A report by the legislation of Texas has been finalized and issued to the public…..their findings are nothing short of expected…..stupidity and inaction were the rule of the day.
A Texas legislative report released Sunday spreads blame among law enforcement, the Uvalde school district, social media platforms, and the gunman’s family in the mass shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers. “Systemic failures and egregious poor decision making” allowed the gunman to kill at will for more than an hour despite the presence of 376 officers and the gunman’s complete lack of experience with firearms, the report says. The force gathered at Robb Elementary School on May 24 was larger than the one that defended the Alamo, the Tribune points out. The families of the victims received the preliminary, 77-page report Sunday morning and were scheduled to discuss it with members of the committee later in the day, per CNN.
The report identified no “villains” other than the gunman, “no one to whom we can attribute malice or ill motives.” But it detailed a sweeping breakdown and “an overall lackadaisical approach” to the crime. The officers who went to the school included 25 city police officers, 16 sheriff’s deputies, and five school district officers; the rest were federal or state officers, whose mandate includes responding to “mass attacks in public places.” District Police Chief Pete Arredondo said he assumed someone else was in charge that day. But the district’s active shooter response plan, which he co-wrote, says the chief will “become the person in control of the efforts of all law enforcement and first responders that arrive at the scene.” Local officers have received the most criticism, but the report points out that “these local officials were not the only ones expected to supply the leadership needed during this tragedy,” adding that officers from other agencies “could have helped to address the unfolding chaos.”
“They’re a joke. They’ve got no business wearing a badge,” said Vincent Salazar, grandfather of 11-year-old Layla Salazer, on Sunday, per the AP. “None of them do.” The report lists clear warning signs about the gunman that no one, including his family, acted on, per the Tribune. A year before he shot 21 people to death, other gamers gave him the nickname, “school shooter.” He told a girlfriend he wouldn’t live beyond 18. He was drawn to gore and violent sex online, sometimes sharing images of suicides and beheadings. He became furious when he lost games, threatening female players especially. He collected information about the mass shooting in a Buffalo supermarket. He spent time with a relative who went to Robb to learn about his schedule and lunch periods. An out-of-town friend grew concerned and offered to visit the gunman in July or August. “Damn that’s too late,” the 18-year-old answered.
Seriously? No villains?
A white wash…..the cops that stood around while children died are more than villains…they were complacent….in the deaths of the children….a report to CYA the cops…..as always.
AS with most police situations….they just look the other way and blame someone else for their incompetence.
And the do-nothing attitude continues…..

My belief is that There is nothing (absolutely nothing) that happened in Uvalde on that infamous day that is not representative of the character and nature of Texas and Texans.
I cannot argue….well said chuq
More examples of propaganda dominating the media.
This article written by the New Delhi Times
[[An investigative committee of the Texas House of Representatives said it did not find any “villains” in the May 24 massacre beyond the shooter, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, but faulted law enforcement officials for waiting more than hour before finally barging into a fourth-grade classroom to confront and kill him.]]
No clarifications on the identity of the killer. Whether he was an illegal alien or a US citizen? A fundamental question – totally ignored. Who killed the killer? A private citizen with a gun, who seeing the cowardice of the police who refused to confront the killer for over an hour. Entered the building and fatally shot the killer. This story negates the hysteria which rabidly supports the gun control narrative.

THIS … the presence of 376 officers!! — “A white wash … the cops that stood around while children died are more than villains … they were complacent … in the deaths of the children … a report to CYA the cops … as always.”

No mention of how easy it was for him to buy a gun either. Just as expected, sadly. Cowards keep their jobs, and wait until it is forgotten about after the next mass shooting.
The land of the free and the home of the brave? Doesn’t sound like it.
Best wishes, Pete.
You are right it is becoming that myth of the Wild West….chuq
