Perhaps they were told to stand down?


That is a given.

Remember Sandy Hook aerial photos during stand off/shooting?
Not an ambulance in sight for all the wounded and dead.
Yet... so many.... they say.

Distraction distraction distraction.
No worries, you pay taxes for it in a free country.
We all do.
Well, those who do or did work anyway.

There are a lot of questions that need to be answered.

Who had command of the situation?

Why did the different departments allow a FAILED command presence to limit their response?

Was there a failure in training?

Talked to a buddy of mine that is at a medium sized department here in Minnesota, he told me that if there was active shooting they are trained to go towards the shooting and stop the threat. He has seen some of the video from this fiasco, his response and I quote, "WTF were they thinking?"

They are supposedly releasing an extensive report on the shooting today. Can anyone find a link to it? It's expected to be about 100 pgs.

"high-speed chases have been a daily event in the Uvalde area, causing Uvalde CISD schools to be secured or locked down frequently, with 47 “secure” or “lockdown” events happening since late February 2022, and approximately 90% of those being attributed to bailouts.60 Uvalde CISD parents became so concerned about the number of bailouts occurring near the elementary-school campuses that they offered to hire off-duty police to supplement the Uvalde CISD police presence.61"

77-Page Report Details ‘Systemic’ Law Enforcement Failures in Uvalde School Mass Shooting​

July 17, 2022

This is an excerpt from The Epoch Times.
77-Page Report Details ‘Systemic’ Law Enforcement Failures in Uvalde School Mass Shooting

A 77-page report released by the Texas state House of Representatives said there were systemic failures on behalf of the some 400 enforcement officers who responded to the May 24 mass shooting at a school in Uvalde.

“There is no one to whom we can attribute malice or ill motives. Instead, we found systemic failures and egregious poor decision making,” the report said, noting “shortcomings and failures of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District [CISD] and of various agencies and officers of law enforcement” and “an overall lackadaisical approach.”

Those claims appear to coincide with statements made by top Texas officials days after the shootings. Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw said on May 27 that it was the “wrong decision” not to engage with the shooter, Salvador Ramos.

Meanwhile, surveillance footage from Robb Elementary School released on July 12 shows officers waiting around more than 45 minutes before several officers approached the classroom where Ramos had entered. The officers didn’t enter. It took more than 75 minutes for law enforcement to kill Ramos, 18, after he entered the building.

The report said that law enforcement failed to quickly confront the suspect and instead retreated to safety.

“In this crisis, no responder seized the initiative to establish an incident command post,” it states. “Despite an obvious atmosphere of chaos, the ranking officers of other responding agencies did not approach the Uvalde CISD chief of police or anyone else perceived to be in command to point out the lack of and need for a command post, or to offer that specific assistance.”

Some individual officers acted without instruction to try to reach the shooter and might have been able to do so if they had more backup, according to the paper.

“Given the information known about victims who survived through the time of the breach and who later died on the way to the hospital, it is plausible that some victims could have survived if they had not had to wait 73 additional minutes for rescue,” the report reads.

A force of 376 law enforcement officers responded to the mass shooting, according to the House panel, which said that there wasn’t clear leadership as they responded.
