Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw on Tuesday told state lawmakers the police response to the massacre at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas on May 24 was an “abject failure.”
McCraw also revealed the husband of slain elementary teacher Eva Mireles, identified as Uvalde CISD Police Officer Ruben Ruiz, tried to save her but officers in the school prevented him from doing so.
McCraw said the teacher called her husband shortly after the gunman attacked her classroom and told him “she had been shot and was dying.”
“(Ruiz) tried to move forward into the hallway,” McCraw said. “He was detained and they took his gun away from him and escorted him off the scene.”
An armed officer gets a call from his wife that she was shot, bleeding, and in the room with the shooter.
The officer tried to go in and was escorted away by fellow officers.
His wife died.
Three things come to mind.
This feels like the opening to a cop goes rogue against his corrupt department revenge action movie.
This stinks of corruption. Why did his fellow officers stop him. This looks sketchy as fuck.
I don’t know this officer but I know myself, and if my wife was in a room with a gunman and I had a rifle, I would go into that room and kill that motherfucker and everyone who got in my way of going into that room.
