An SRO engaged the school shooter in TX

13032 475
There was an SRO in the elementary school in the school shooting in TX. He was shot by the gunman defending the school.
Imagine how many more would be dead if a good guy with a gun wasn’t there.

This was screwed up on so many levels , you need to get the transcript of the Texas DPS investigation and go through it Officers on scene in 3:00 minutes so many screw ups between on scene officers, dispatch and the chief. The communication was abysmal I will need a month to go through all this garbage.

Yup, can start with failure to provide basic maintenance of doors..... then ISD/PD knew radios did not work in building, but did not upgrade to better radios like BP had that worked... then ISD/PD did not have keys on their officers... You can go on forever with issues administrators failed to address before the actual shooting.

I don't care about most of that on the police side this could have been handled by the first 3 on scene if they kept going

Sounds like a big judgement for the plaintiff to me.
What is ****ing inexcusable is she knew he was coming to help and he was stopped by his peers and they didn't help him rescue her and the other kids, none of them are fit to wear a badge,,,NONE

Hell, yeah. The radios didn’t work in the freaking school. Forget active shooter. How about daily needs like calling for an ambulance or an officer screaming for backup. That’s why that school chief brought his cell phone instead of a radio.
A simple repeater in the school might have solved the problem

No, the majority had every reason to believe the door was locked. They got that based on the first officers at the scene. Even the DPS officers saw how many officers were in the hallway and left. The Border Patrol SWAT team thought the door was locked too.

Yeah but the BP SWAT Team took action. I guess you side with the Mayor and what the DPS Director said in the Senate hearing is false or the mayor said, lies?

I am very curious about this report that they “restrained” “took his firearm away” and escorted away the cop husband of the teacher. That would have taken a very quick and concerted effort by a large number of other officers if that was my wife. Did they cuff and stuff him? What kept him from coming back and trying again? There may be further blood to flow yet in Uvalde.

And the SCOTUS has already ruled that the police have no responsibility to individuals.
The school with the locks have a liability. The police in this case might have a liability. They physically prevented an officer who was active shooter trained from entering and possibly saving his wife .Some one prevented the Border patrol team from going in earlier. There might be a legal difference in the doctrine that while the police don’t have a responsibility but they might have legal liability for their overt actions. Something the court might consider.

Yeah, I am aware of that. You don't think some attorney will file suit and a judge will allow the suit? But let's get deeper into this. WHY were those officers there? It seems like they were there specifically responding to those individuals. They just responded in the wrong way according to most every agency out there. THAT is another reason they will be sued. THEIR INACTION contributed to the death of those murdered children and teachers. Do you agree?

At a minimum, I think a judge will let it go to the discovery phase.

If I had to guess, only a guess and it might be wrong, some lawyer will claim the School District PD had a duty to the school and students in general. After that it’ll come down to tactics and the whether or not the tactics were negligent, thereby causing harm. There will be lawsuits over this, though I’ve obviously got no idea how they‘ll turn out. You’re correct of course that generally police have no duty to individuals.
