Summary by JW Williams
Uvalde, Texas: On Tuesday, May 24, there was a mass shooting event at Robb Elementary School and 19 children and two teachers were reportedly killed by 18-year old Salvador Ramos. He lived with his grandmother and shot her in the face just before his attack on the school. She is reported to still be alive, but in critical condition.
Ramos took her truck and crashed it into a ditch outside the school. He had an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle and shot at people at a nearby funeral home and then turned his gun on the outside of the school for 10 minutes, according to neighbor Juan Carranza. The witness said that there were no police officers at the school to engage Ramos. The gunman went into the school and began shooting. When police finally did arrive, Carranza said, they didn’t do anything at all for about an hour. Carranza’s version of events, which is the opposite of the official narrative, is corroborated with videos. Those videos show police officers with rifles and body armor standing outside the school.
Police stood outside of the school and did not engage with Ramos. Instead, police forcibly kept parents who wanted to save their children out of the school for a full hour, and one officer drew his taser.
A Texas official later suggested on camera that while all this was happening, some police officers went inside the school to get their own children out.
A mother, Angeli Rose Gomez, told the Wall Street Journal that she heard about the incident and drove 40 miles to the school to save her two sons. She complained that the police were not going inside to rescue the children and Federal Marshals put her in handcuffs. After they freed her, Gomez “made her distance from the crowd, jumped the school fence and ran inside to grab her two children.” She then ran out of the school with her children.
Initially, authorities reported that a school resource officer engaged with Ramos, but an officer later admitted that there was no resource officer. Police did say that officers went inside the school for 4 minutes after the suspect, but then they were treated outside the school and then police did not reenter the school for another hour. During that time, they say they were waiting for backup, including multiple crisis negotiators.
The police were reported to be reluctant to go after Ramos because they were afraid of being shot. Ramos was reported to be fatally shot by a Border Patrol agent when they arrived.
Javier Cazares, the father of one of the reported victims, had urged bystanders to rush in and save the children because the cops weren’t doing anything. He said that the police were “unprepared.”
This is very curious as Uvalde High School participated in a mass shooting exercise just two months BEFORE the event at nearby Robb Elementary School. Salvador Ramos, then a student at Uvalde High School, attended the staged drill. Uvalde School District police officer Ruben Ruiz held the active shooter drill and posed as the shooter in the staged act. Ruiz was married to one of the teachers, Eva Mireles, 44, who was reportedly killed. Many mass shootings and terror operations have been proceeded by an official drill, such as 9/11, the Boston Bombing and the Parkland school shooting in Florida in 2018.
Democrats are now blaming Republicans for the shooting event and are pushing gun control.
Some critics have questioned how Ramos, who was reportedly bullied for stuttering and being poor, could have purchased two AR platform rifles at a local federal firearms dealer several days prior to the shooting, ina ddition to 375 rounds of ammunition. He was also wearing body armor.
Despite 20 states allowing teachers or staff to carry guns, all the school shootings have occurred in schools that don’t allow them to carry. Texas does allow teachers and staff to carry firearms, and about 30% of schools do have armed staff, but the Robb Elementary School did not have provisions for teachers or staff to carry. Schools designated as “gun-free zones” are vulnerable to mass shootings.
