Every one of those cops should be fired and charged with negligent homicide.
Cops responding to the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting ran away from gunshots while 19 children and two teachers were left to die in their classrooms, according to new footage of the horrifying attack published Tuesday.
The disturbing video, first obtained by the Austin-American Statesman, shows how police officers dilly-dallied in the hallway of Robb Elementary School instead of charging after 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos as he systematically slaughtered 21 people on May 24.
The 77-minute clip shows officers rushing into the school just minutes after 18-year-old Ramos began his rampage, but rather than confront him, they stopped and lingered — with one cop in a helmet and vest even seen using a wall-mounted hand sanitizer and checking his phone.
The officers are also captured fleeing down the hallway when Ramos fires in their direction, according to the footage taken from school security cameras.
The video validates damning reports that local and state authorities failed to take immediate action to stop the bloodbath despite being just yards from the shooter.
Heavily armed officers are seen in the video walking around in the hallway, leaving, coming back, talking to each other and making calls during precious moments when they could have been trying to thwart Ramos.
It is not until 77 minutes into the recording that the cops finally breach the classroom where Ramos, who died in the attack, had gunned down the innocent kids and teachers.
In one moment during the recording, more than 45 minutes after they arrived on the scene, an officer in a helmet and vest is seen using a wall-mounted hand sanitizer dispenser. That same officer is also seen looking at his phone.
……Vincent Salazar, whose 11-year-old daughter Layla Salazar was killed in the shooting, told The Post that he had not seen the video before the Statesman published it and that families of the victims felt “blindsided.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety had walked him through what was in the video, but he said seeing it felt different.
“We all know that the [police] didn’t do their jobs, but seeing it will reaffirm that. There needs to be accountability. A lot of these people who didn’t act shouldn’t have their jobs,” Salazar said.
This mom has bigger balls than the Uvalde cops:
As the media’s attention turns to police officers who stood outside a school in Uvalde, Texas, and refused to enter while a mass shooter killed 21 people on Tuesday, a mother is being hailed as a hero for going into the school to rescue her two children as the carnage unfolded.
According to a report in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, Angeli Rose Gomez said she drove 40 miles to get her children at Robb Elementary School, where they’re in second and third grade, respectively.
Having found that police hadn’t entered the school, Gomez said she implored them to do something, was put in handcuffs by U.S. marshals, then convinced local police to get her freed.
After that, she jumped the school fence, ran inside the school, and escaped with her children, according to reports.
These Uvalde cops are just like the Broward Cowards.
None of them are fit to wear a police uniform.
