In the wake of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting, there are many questions about the police response. And the people in charge of the department don’t seem interested in clearing things up.
A number of videos have emerged of police officers outside the building as the shooter was inside. Rather than entering the school, though, the officers were focused on controlling horrified parents. Teh clips are so bad, that even Tucker Carlson ripped into the Uvalde response.
The Fox host told viewers, “But on the big questions it’s very obvious immediately. Was there a school resource officer who exchanged fire with the gunman? That’s not something you would imagine. That either happened or it didn’t, and you would know right away if it happened or it didn’t. It didn’t happen, but they said it did happen. That’s a lie. Why did they lie?”
Carlson continued, “No matter how pro-law enforcement you are – and we are – there’s only so much B.S. you can take in the face of a tragedy like this. We were waiting for specialized equipment? You have an 18year-old with a firearm and little kids being killed. What kind of specialty of equipment do you need? Negotiators? Really? As children are being murdered?”
