That the POLICE Chief of the whole district did NOT ALREADY have the master keys to the schools and each barricade able door, even after an Active SCHOOL Shooter training session makes it Criminal in My Opinion.

TheRoon4660 • 1 month ago

That school was in a dangerous area and I read that they had training and procedures because they had border chase problems going through their streets at times. Something strange here.

Robison is mishandling this story by failing to ask why the schools didn't protect the kids adequately.

Rich kids at boarding schools are protected by armed rentacops.

Poor kids in public schools not so much.

Pj • 1 month ago

Exactly. The classroom doors were set up to protect the children. Not the shooter!! No one is asking why! The school is the first to blame here. Starting with the front door.

David Chapman • 1 month ago

Call it as it is: They sacrificed an entire classroom of children and a teacher based on the thought he was locked inside and therefore would ONLY kill a maximum of 20 people vs a potential unknown more or LESS. The scumbag chief is framing their technique of locking in the shooter as the best option to save POLICE lives not civilian and children lives. THAT is what it's really about. Why? Because the police do not serve and protect YOU. They serve and protect the town of.. the city of... the state of... and towns cities and states are only made up of assets , which is why human beings are called human RESOURCES. You are an asset to them at best, in truth are slave easily replaced. They had 18 non tax paying lives and 2 tax paying lives vs the cost of police assets and replacing equipment or personnel lost in the engagement. See things for how they are, not how you're told or want them to be.

In battered Uvalde, where a police chief is in hiding, grief gives way to calls for accountability

As chief of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Dept, it was Arredondo’s call to wait more than an hour for backup instead of ordering officers on scene to immediately charge the shooter.

“They were cowards,” said Salvador Hurtado, a retired farm worker, who said Arredondo should lose his job. “There was one man with a gun, and they waited & waited. … I read the signs on the police cars that say ‘protect and serve.’ Where was the protection?”

City Hall has locked its doors during business hours & declined to immediately provide any public records to reporters. The chief of the city police force, Daniel Rodriguez, has declined to answer questions about his officers’ response to the shooting. A Uvalde CISD official told a reporter, falsely, that the first school board meeting since the incident would be closed to the public.

At the special meeting Friday, an agenda item allowed the board to terminate Arredondo. The board declined to do so.

Board members did not respond to requests for comment before the meeting.

Lydia Morales, who grew up in Uvalde, said local government has long been insular. She feels officials protect each other & give preferential treatment to friends & allies. She criticized Mayor Don McLaughlin for initially saying Arredondo would not be sworn in as planned. Arredondo was subsequently sworn in Monday at City Hall in a secret ceremony.

“He lied to the community of Uvalde,” Morales said. “But shame on Arredondo for even doing that. I can’t see how he would have the audacity.”

A relative who declined to be interviewed said Arredondo is not the bad guy some have made him out to be & suggested the chief needs to speak up for himself.

From her family’s produce stand on Main Street, Angelia Arellano has watched police cars from Dallas, Houston and the Rio Grande Valley drive by in the past week. Officers from across the state have come to assist their local counterparts. She said the city Police Dept appears to have retreated from public view at precisely the moment they should be out in the community as it grieves.

Their absence reinforces Arellano’s belief, forged in a lifetime of living in Uvalde, that the Police Cannot be Relied upon. She said they refused to respond when she once called about a man who was harassing her son.

“The Police aren’t very Effective,” she said in Spanish. “If there’s no blood & no one has been killed, they don’t come.”

Mary Rodriguez, 86 said her heart breaks at the thought that students could have been saved if the police had acted sooner. She said her faith dictates her to let God judge Arredondo. She said she feels local police are Not Held in High Regard by Uvalde residents & that they have been Slow to Respond whenever she has called. Their Failure to Act Decisively during the Shooting, she said, is Inexcusable.

“We Don’t want those Policemen to be here,” Rodriguez said. “I pray that they get New Jobs somewhere else.”

Your first post may of been taken down because of links? Still has it if you need it.

Had said this below but GWP didn't let the post go through.
Excellent collection. They had the training and expertise, they were doing all the right things. One obvious conclusion that can be drawn from this is the system of protection was deliberately circumvented by the very people who set it up and ran it. In other words Ramos had help in order to advance gun control which means it came from the top and was an op. To many other facts point to this as well.

Suggests you save your work before you refresh your page or let me know if you lost it so we can take out some links and see it posts.

Great post btw.

Yeah, the last link didn't have spaces after the periods. But I really expected Discus to SPAM it anyway. I'm on the list. Sometimes a 2 word reply gets spammed immediately..."Narcissist Sociopath"

I usually try to copy a new post & save incase I need to use parts later. Didn’t this time.

If you don't mind, check all the links, but I saw too late that the last link was complete.
Thanks

From James Green with out functional links.

Goto the Schools Website & view the Police dept website. Then start looking at older news articles about each officer. This was just a club with a boosted resume. Almost every Officer claimed to have Basic SWAT, Advanced SWAT, Hostage & Crisis control Training. Plus they had 1 Security Guard. The Detective is a retired Uvalde Police Detective who has a great resume on paper. Uvalde is 80 miles from the border, hence it has permanent Inspection stations. Because of this, there are 150 permanent BP Agents stationed there. Almost every family has a relative or friend who is in the BP. One report says around 80 On & Off duty BP responded to the School. Everyone has heard the story of the off duty BP who borrowed his barbershops Shotgun, went to the school where his wife, a teacher had already escaped & was across the street at the funeral home. He & other BP Agents knocked windows out & allowed children & other teachers to escape. But other Agents, Police, Troopers, US Marshal's kept parents back, when they had the equipment, & were Sworn Officers.
Uvalde spends 60% of its budget on Police including their own 9 member SWAT Team. Where were they?
This is a tight knit Community, one even saying that Police used to follow intoxicated drivers home to ensure they made it.

The SWAT Team also did a full tactical walk through of all the Schools & Businesses & an Active Shooter drill at one school on or about March 22.

Incentivize the process for mom + dad-Jimmy + Janey do the homework,progress well,tax incentives to family. Make "back to school" = back to zoom

Stop saying it was "mishandled." They handled it exactly as they were told. The slaughter of children is the exact thing they needed after they got their marching orders from WEF. And to boot they let it happen to "expendable" minority children.

All Facts - US govt employs 240,000 security officers in different capacities nationwide and contracts 1000's more. In DC alone, a few thousand Fed law enforcement officers and 9700+ armed security contractors protect 127 Federal buildings. Each DC fed building is protected by an average of close to 100 guns. Plus Capitol Police, DC Metro, Secret Service, FBI, Homeland Security, etc.

I propose all armed security personnel get transferred to schools and we put up "Gun Free Zone" signs at all our Federal buildings!!!!

Gun grabbers wanted more bodies and they got them. So now they push gun bans that only disarm law abiding people. Mass killers and other criminals will use homemade sub machine guns. These are simple and easiest of automatic weapons to make. Search for Luty guns for examples.
