the Wrong Decision’

Addressing the mass-shooting that claimed 21 lives in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, Department of Public Safety Director Steven McGraw acknowledged Friday that responding officers waited too long to breach the classroom where the killing took place. Speaking to reporters at a press conference held at the scene of the shooting, McGraw said that the on-scene incident commander, Chief of Police Daniel Rodriguez, made the decision to fall back and wait for U.S. Border Patrol Tactical Teams to breach the classroom. McGraw said the decision to delay entering the classroom was mistaken. According to Texas active shooter doctrine, officers are required to make an immediate breach

I also ask why no one went to the window of the classroom. Just doesn’t make sense not too. Or, with all the police there at the time, all run into the building. At the same time! So many questions need to be answered

Horrifying to imagine what those children and teachers went through as they made 911 call after 911 call begging for the police to come quickly.

I don’t like to criticize people who are in a really tough position for what they did or didn’t do. I’m sure that every course of action was fraught with danger for the children and others. But to wait and see …… I wonder if TV cameras in the classrooms and hallways would have enabled a quicker assessment? Software to quickly locate the perp in the school and to see what his situation was. The money bidet has sent to Ukraine for the war he started there- and money that would have been generated from federal leases instead of being paid to Russia and saudi and iran- could have easily paid for such a system for all US schools. And huncher could set up the company to do it so schmoe would still get rich even without looting Ukraine. We could learn from the Israelis, too. But schmoe doesn’t want to learn- he wants to attack his enemies.

I believe that the incident commander who made the call to transition from active shooter to barricaded suspect, the Uvalde I.S.D. police chief, was not the appropriate person to coordinate a multi-agency response to an active shooter in the first place. A DPS supervisor or the county's high sheriff, should have assumed incident command upon arrival. Since all police officers in Texas must be peace officers commissioned by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), this incident, and its breakdowns, should be prominently included in all police training academies in the state, which TCOLE can require.

Root problem appears to be a command & control FUBAR. Incident Commander decision-making botched the response. Should have had some live shooter training scenarios, to include soft targets with high volume targets in confined areas. No excuse to wait in this particular situation, from what is known so far.

Don't rush to judgement. I suspect ( but have no direct knowledge) that most if not all the murders happened before there was a law enforcement presence at the scene. The shooter was barricaded in a single room, it makes sense to evacuate the rest of the school and gather your force before assaulting the shooter.

There were actually two Police Departments and two Chiefs of Police that were supposedly responded to the Uvalde school shooting. At the news conference today, the Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety said that it was the Chief of the Uvalde Independent School District Police Department, who would have been a man named Pete Arredondo, who was the incident commander at the school where the shootings took place. So it would have been Chief Arredondo who actually made all the critical law enforcement command tactical decisions at that scene. The other local Police Department there was the Uvalde Police Department and that Chief’s name was Daniel Rodriguez. The US Border Patrol tactical unit that responded in a mutual aid role, once on the scene, would have taken direction from the on the ground incident commander as they assisted. It was really unfortunate that Chiefs Arredondo and Rodriguez were not at today’s news conference to explain their actions and decisions at the scene.

How were the 911 calls not made known to the police chief? How could he so quickly determine that all were dead? How could they not do everything to reach children and their teachers? Not trying to be an armchair QB but if I were a parent, the police would have had to shoot me to keep me from running into that building. Since they were not.

Public Safety Director, Steven MGraw, needs to apologize to those parents who were handcuffed or tazed while trying to get into the school. Unimaginable. There should have been a designated place for the parents. But better yet, the police should have made a decision to go into the school. McGraw, you better make amends for this. These parents needed proper attention and help. Instead, they were treated with contempt. So, whose the bad guy on this? The evil shooter. Parents were acting out of uncontrolled fear for their children. McGraw,fix this mess. Make sure it never ever happens again. Tell the truth, sir.

The apparent mis-handled response by the Texas police reminds me of the Columbine High School massacre a little more than 22 years ago. In that case, the police too seemed befuddled as to how to neutralize the shooters. Fortunately, the two student shooters eventually killed themselves, but after taking the lives of their classmates. THEN the police felt comfortable in going in to take over.

How about blame be placed in appropriate portions. Why was this individual allowed in the school. Door open? Blame the school. Most of all, I blame the 18-year old and his parents. How many people have been saying "defund the police" but are now placing all of the blame on them? You can put all of the laws in place but it will do nothing for evil hearts. Evil hearts are very much related to God taken out of society. . .

The mass shooters, while crazy, are not stupid, and have always chosen unarmed, gun-free targets...not a single one has yet attacked a police station. While schools are not police stations, we could do a lot with a little to 'harden' them. With 130,000 K-12 schools in America, the $44 billion we're sending to Ukraine could also pay for $338,000 of extra security per school....that's enough for 3 or 4 armed officers per school, some security cameras, metal detectors, and reinforced doors, and the overhead to manage them.

The police were willing to continue following an order to stand down and do nothing for over an hour. How many wounded children, whose lives might have been saved by timely medical attention, bled out and died while the police did nothing to save them? And that raises another question: is there ANY order the police officers would NOT have followed? Would the police officers have followed an order to shoot angry parents? Would they have followed an order to shoot escaping children? I am sorry, but the evidence suggests that the answer to both questions is “yes.” So, is there ANY order they would NOT have followed?

So many of these evil attacks of late have had so many similarities. Sadly, they're starting to look selected, staged, coached, and politically purposeful. So many of these woeful young men can be manipulated-- and set off... like grenades , tossed from the hands of others. One can recall the summer of 2020 ... but slow- rolled out for a different style of bespoke terror. Back then, i watched endless hours of footage of the swarms of paid white-privilege mindless mini-fachas , as i have BTDT many times before. it disgusts me to say that i had these noxious feelings: 1--pdt's promise of free enterprise zones for black neighbourhoods was a big selling point for my vote; it was thrilling to see all these homeowners and business owners create new prosperity; 2--imho, those citizens looked to be targeted in 2020 for satanic flames-- to destroy their valued creations -- at the pleasure of the usual pitchfork and brimstone entities demanding pain for those who stray from their hell [see washington dc for further info]; 3--so ask yourself: is summer 2022 the campaign of joeRICObanger against hispanic families --to whip them back in line--back to the slave galleys of the demonimarxistas --just for prizing education and self reliance for their precious children?

As Allahpundit pointed out here, when BORTAC agents showed up at Robb Elementary School Tuesday, they were told by the on scene commander not to enter the school. The NY Times reported the agents had driven from the border and showed up between noon and 12:10 pm. And we know from an earlier timeline that they finally breached the door around 12:50 pm and killed the suspect within a few minutes. Now NBC has published a story with a small but significant update to what the Times reported earlier. It turns out the BORTAC agents who killed Ramos were never told to go inside. Instead,

One of the questions being mulled over yesterday was how the shooter so easily gained access to the school.

But there was supposedly a security plan that included keeping doors to the school locked from the outside. A short time ago Texas DPS director Steven McGraw gave a timeline of the incident which revealed a teacher had propped open that door moments before the shooter arrived. “We know from video evidence at 11:27 the exterior door…where we knew the shooter entered, was propped open by

When respondents were asked whether they believed “there will be more, fewer, or the same amount of incidence [sic] of gun violence” in the “next few years,” 54 percent said there would be more gun violence during that time, which would be during Biden’s presidency. Thirty-four percent said gun violence would remain about the same. Only five percent said they believed gun violence would decrease in the next few years.

Vladimir Lenin supposedly once said, “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” There’s some doubt as to whether this line is genuine; regardless, it seems like a pretty good description of what the Biden administration is doing to Ameri ca’s middle class. Inflation is running rampant. The Producer Price Index, the most useful measure of general inflation, is up a whopping 16.3% from April 2021, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means that roughly $1 out of every $6 that people earn has been lost to inflation in a single year.

Our betters in the World Economic Forum (WEF) gathered in Davos this week to decide what’s best for the planet and everyone on it (especially themselves). But Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, was sad. He was disappointed that the plebs don’t want his company’s revered COVID-19 vaccines. “It’s sad to say, I’m in the process of throwing 30 million doses into the garbage, because nobody wants them,” lamented Bancel as he participated in a panel discussion. “We have a big demand problem.” Actually, that sounds like a big over-supply problem to me, but what do I know?

President Joe Biden seems to have told a football fib during a speech Friday at the U.S. Naval Academy, claiming he was accepted to the vaunted military institution back in 1965, but declined because future NFL Hall of Fame Roger Staubach blocked his path to playing for the Midshipmen.Biden said he instead went to the University of Delaware, which is true. But he never played varsity football there, and there’s no evidence he ever declined a spot at Navy. The years don’t come close to matching up, either. It appears to be the latest example of Biden trying to fit in with a crowd of people he’s addressing by saying
