From The Daily Mail:

‘There was at least 40 lawmen armed to the teeth, but didn’t do a darn thing till it was far too late’: Furious father of Texas elementary school shooting victim, 10, slams the police for failing to take down gunman until 90 MINUTES after massacre began

The father of a 10-year-old girl murdered in her Texas classroom on Tuesday has demanded to know why the gunman was able to rampage through the school for 90 minutes until he was shot dead, as it emerged that onlookers urged the police to enter the building – but they did not.

The first 911 call was received 90 minutes earlier, at 11:30am, saying a man had emerged from a crashed vehicle with a long rifle and a backpack.

‘There was at least 40 lawmen armed to the teeth but didn’t do a darn thing until it was far too late,’ Cazares told ABC News.

One woman was yelling at the police outside the school, said Juan Carranza, 24, who lives opposite.

He said she was screaming: ‘Go in there! Go in there!’

Carranza said the officers did not go in.

Ramos on Tuesday first shot his 66-year-old grandmother Cecilia Gonzalez in the face, leaving her severely injured, before stealing her pickup truck and driving towards the school.

Unable to drive, he crashed into a ditch and then ran to the school on foot, where he was met by an armed security guard.

Yet he was still able to enter the school and kill 21 people – and was not stopped until around 1pm, when a Border Patrol agent backed up by a tactical team shot him dead.

This is the timeline of events as reported by the news:

11:32am: A mass casualty incident – later discovered to be the shooting – takes place at Robb Elementary School. The school reports it is locked down because of ‘gunshots in the area.’

12.17pm: The school posts a message on social media writing: ‘There is an active shooter at Robb Elementary.’

12.38pm: A reunification site is set up at the Willie DeLeon Civic Center.

1.06pm: The Uvalde Police Department reports the suspect is ‘in police custody.’

This is a first report and we do not know how long the shooter was dead before the police report was sent out.

But if this is true we are looking at a Parkland 2.0 situation where lives were lost because a timely response did not occur.

The one thing we know about active shooters is that once they start the response needs to be instant.  Get in there and fire as much ammo at the shooter as possible as quickly as possible until he’s dead.

I’m also curious why the school’s armed security was ineffective.

We need more information before we can really start casting judgment but from this initial report that a lot of failures occurred that allowed this to happen.

  1. This….is INSANITY, NO CRIMINAL.
    if true.
    I am VERY VERY VERY leary of ANY brit reporting. More so than U.S.

    They were and are Masters of Propaganda and Disinfo.
    And History proves that.

  2. Modern police run toward the gunfire, then secure the perimeter and wait for someone with balls to go in and fight. Or, just wait for a negotiation team to talk to them. Prove me wrong.

  3. this does seem to be a common tactic with police. close the area and wait. I first saw this in the colbine (?) shooting.
    cops form a secure wall OUTSIDE THE PLACE. then they sent in a team to find out what is what.
    not sure where that idea came from. the IDF does not play by those rules. but then again, they have ARMED teachers too
    seems kind of easy to pick out who is shooting and just shoot them to get them to stop. guess that makes too much sense
    and besides the main thing with cops is to make it home after each shift. got to stay alive to get that pension right ?

  4. But what happens if the police mistake an Elementary Student for the shooter? /SARCASM

    I surely do not know the facts, Thanks News Media!
    But the reports almost made it sound like the Border Patrol SWAT Officer said F*** IT!!! I am going in. By himself?
    IF! If that is true, I am going to be livid.

  5. He didn’t “rampage” through the school he did barricade himself in one classroom, that was where all of the children were murdered. Sounds like grief and anger pushing a perception and misunderstanding

    J Kb you should know better than speculating on events at this point in time

  6. It’s not just “Parkland 2.0”. It’s also “Sandy Hook 2.0”.

    The @$$hat didn’t wander the school shooting whoever. He entered one classroom and killed everyone in it, just like in Sandy Hook.

    He also exercised the “Shoot [Caretaker] in the Face and Steal Their Stuff” option, just like in Sandy Hook.

    And just like in Sandy Hook (and Parkland), every person his age who knew him, knew he had problems. They knew he was isolated, disaffected, bullied, and becoming increasingly aggressive. Many reported their concerns about him.

    And as in Parkland and Sandy Hook before, NOTHING HAPPENED. The legal tools to intervene are there, even in Texas (where to my knowledge they don’t have a “Red Flag” ERPO law — they might get one after this, but still not use it).

    It’s like the worst parts of both Parkland and Sandy Hook, all rolled into one terrible event.
