Questions Arise over Police Refusal to Storm Uvalde School

'Let's just rush in because the cops aren't doing anything like they are supposed to... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) In the wake of the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, questions have arisen regarding the slow response by local law enforcement.

The reports said that the shooter was in the classroom for 30-60 minutes before being engaged by border patrol officers, who stormed the classroom and engaged in a shoot out with the attacker, the Daily Caller reported.

In the timelines which have been gathered, there are inconsistencies, including whether shots were fired in an attempt to keep the attacker from entering the building.

The gunman, identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, reportedly entered the building’s back door without being engaged by the officer on premises.

Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, explained that the officer on scene cornered the gunman, where a firefight took place through the door.

The officer was injured and Ramos barricaded himself in the classroom. According to Gonzales, there was a reported 30-minute lull before the gunman started shooting.

Then, the border patrol agent breached the classroom and neutralized the shooter.

One law enforcement official said the police had difficulties breaching the door and asked staff to open it with a key. There were also several contradictory reports about the length of the shooting from law enforcement.

The Citizen Free Press published video footage from outside of the school as the shooting was taking place, most of which shows police blocking parents from going inside and not taking any apparent action to go in themselves.

Several witnesses—parents, neighbors of the school —said the police did not enter the school at all. Parents even raised the idea of charging the school themselves.

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” said parent Javier Cazares. “More could have been done.”

Cazares’ fourth-grade daughter, Jacklyn, was killed in the mass shooting that took the lives of 19 children.
