Thank you for the correct info. Too much chatter/false infoThey were in fact, the lead on the scene. It was their Chief Pete Arredondo who was the on-site incident commander McCraw referenced as having made the bad decisions.
Thank for the info. It seems like the news here just screams gun control rather than what happened.Students were still calling 911 as late as 1243 saying they were alive.
Shooter was still shooting rounds as late as 1221
Texas school shooting: Police made wrong decision, official says | wfaa.com
That been verified?
He was a “ police chief” that only had to supervise 4 officers and one detective. That’s a chief. Sorry but I was never a chief and I supervised a lot more people than that. A lot more people.Looks like the BP guys decided to ignore Chief Arredondo and went in on their own.
Two senior federal law enforcement officials said the federal agents decided after about 30 minutes not to wait any longer and entered the school to find gunman Salvador Ramos.www.nbcnews.com
Good for them, but what an absolute clusterfark.
The latest info I saw, is that 2 Uvalde officers were shot at through the classroom door, resulting in graze type injuries, after the shooter got into the classroom.Thank you for the correct info. Too much chatter/false info
But what I meant was the patrol guys who first engaged with the school cop(s). They should have pressed the attack if possible. If the shots stopped when that chief took command then the chief was right. If the shots with the students happened with initial engagement, those officers made the decision
I think you could cover both doors to the hallway from the door between the 2 classrooms.The room layout I posted earlier shows the 2 rooms each with a door and connected. Shooter might not have been able to cover both classroom doors at same time. A distraction may have worked. This is where the ISD/PD should have had expertise and trained for this type of entry.
Sometimes it is time to embrace the suck and just take the action knowing there's no up side to the situation. I've stared that situation in the face and did what was needed. I will do so again if needed. I would trade my life for a child's.The latest info I saw, is that 2 Uvalde officers were shot at through the classroom door, resulting in graze type injuries, after the shooter got into the classroom.
Pushing through a fatal funnel that the shooter is already shooting at seems like a losing proposition.
It was the teacher in room 132 per the briefing.I think you could cover both doors to the hallway from the door between the 2 classrooms.
The ISD is a 4 officer department.
I think hitting 2 doors, at the same time, is a much higher level of skill than can be expected.
Most school doors that I have seen, are solid core wood door in a metal door frame. I think most generally open out. So breaching those won't be an easy task.
I want to know if there were exterior windows. Those can great for surveillance and other things.
I want to know which teacher propped open an exterior door. I would also like to know when the school went on lock down.
Read this earlier....It was the teacher in room 132 per the briefing.
I havent heard anything about if/when the school went on lockdown.
Here in CO, we do. There can be a lack of prosecutorial appetite at times, but I have an active case on an attempt POWPO. There are a variety of applicable felony state charges we can stack. My experience (including time as a federal TFO) is that the USAO is a waste of time and shoe leather, even with a SAUSA assigned to us.I know locally, no "prohibited persons" that try to buy a gun from an FFL, and get rejected during the background check get prosecuted. No one goes to jail for illegally carrying/possessing a firearm. Violent criminals that get charged with "felon in possession of a firearm" get sent to federal court, because the state courts don't treat that crime seriously.
