On Sunday, The Gateway Pundit reported that the police in Uvalde, Texas, never attempted to open a classroom door while a gunman spent 77 minutes killing 19 children and two teachers who were inside.
A law enforcement source told the San Antonio Express-News that surveillance footage from Robb Elementary School shows that police made no effort to open the door. The report further states there is reason to believe it may have been unlocked.
The surveillance footage from the May 24 massacre has not been publicly released but has been seen by the Express-News.
According to the source, investigators believe the shooter who killed 19 children and two teachers at the school could not have locked the door to the connected classrooms from the inside.
And on Monday, TGP reported that the Austin American-Statesman reported the Uvalde police were in the hallway of Robb Elementary School with rifles and at least one ballistic shield within ten minutes of the start of the mass shooting.
“KVUE Senior Reporter Tony Plohetski reports that, in the strongest terms possible, McCraw has condemned the law enforcement response in Uvalde, calling it an “abject failure and antithetical to everything we have learned over the past two decades,” the news outlet said in their report.
“McCraw says teachers, not law enforcement, should be praised for their actions during the May 24 shooting. He says police had enough firepower and protection to act faster than they did. Teachers worked quickly to lock the school down and save lives, McCraw says,” KVUE added.
Now, Texas of Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw admitted that the Uvalde Police and on-scene officers *NEVER* touched the door to see if it was locked UNTIL they breached!!
“We can never see anybody put their hand on the door of course up until the breached.”
