Due to their surprising response to the massacre at Robb Elementary School last month that left 19 pupils and 2 teachers dead, members of the Uvalde, Texas, police department have been the subject of heated controversy.
The public is becoming increasingly perplexed by the upsetting specifics of what transpired that day. According to reports, police sat outside the door where the shooter was rampaging without attempting to stop him for more than an hour while waiting to take him down.
The State House Committee that is looking into the case has now published even more horrific video, which shows police officers using their phones and getting hand sanitizer as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos was killing kids who were stuck in their classroom with no one to aid them.
“The State House committee investigating, the shooting said that a 77 minute surveillance video is going to be shown in Uvalde. And then released publicly this coming Sunday, no state law has prevented the release of that video, “ according to KVUTV in Austin, which introduced the clip this coming Sunday.
“After thorough editorial discussion, we have decided to show portions of that video because this public record help. All of us to understand what exactly happened inside. Rob Elementary School. That day. It provides more context, but of course, not all context. The video we should say. Here is difficult to watch, obviously, especially knowing what happened that day,” the news announcer remarked.
“You will see the influx of Law Enforcement Officers into the school, which should have enabled quicker action. You will also hear some of the shots fired by the gunman, but we have taken very careful steps here. Not to show any Specially graphic images, though. It hasn’t been released to the victim’s families, yet, the transparency. And the accountability that this video provides weighs heavily in favor of showing it to you,” she stated.
The newscaster informs her listeners:
I want to be clear. The video has been edited, so you will not hear screaming from the classrooms. You will not see any injured children, you will. However, hear gunshots. Now, this first video is one of the toughest to watch. You’re about to see an elementary school student, but this student is not physically harmed. This is the moment, the shooter enters the school and walks down the hallway, behind the shooter, a child will approach that same hallway and then you will hear the shooter fire several shots in the opposite direction as The child turns and runs away. The time is 11:33 a.m.
Now, this next video begins roughly three minutes after what you just saw you will not see the shooter. It’s just as officers arrived with at least one rifle and try to confront the shooter, you will see them come into the frame at 11:36 am, but they will Retreat. Back to the end of the hallway after hearing gunfire and they will stay there for the next 45 minutes.
Now, this video is a time-lapse of a 45-minute clip from 11:37 a.m. to 12:22 p.m. real-time. You will see officers gathered at the end of the hallway as more and more manpower as well as equipment arrives. Now there is more footage of officers and Equipment arriving in staging in that hallway. But for the next video, we’re about to show you the time is now 12:50 p.m. that’s about an hour and 15 minutes. After the first officers were seen on video in the hallway, officers move into the classroom and take down the shooter. And in this video, you can see just how many officers there are in the hallway when the gunman is taken down.
Again Governor Greg Abbott and many in the Valley Community have called for the release of this video. DPS is investigating. I should say, it continues into what happened that day. Jason is gut-wrenching to watch for sure aerial. But again, this is intended to bring about that transparency that we’ve been talking about. There is obviously a lot to take in, And with this video, we want you to be sure to stay with WFA throughout this evening. We’re going to be working to give you the full context of these videos. We’ve also got a full write-up at WFA.com. CONTINUE READING…
