Video has now surfaced showing that when cops arrived at the school in Uvalde, TX, the shooting continued for several minutes while the cops stood outside and did nothing and, in fact, even prevented parents with force from helping their children.
As the cops stood their with their tasers and long guns preventing parents from attempting to save their children, you can see the cops holding down one person and refusing to allow them up. You can hear in the video someone yelling “what the f@## are you doing to him?”
At one point, you can hear the parents say “let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they’re supposed to,” as the parents pleaded with the cops to go inside and stop the shooter.
At one point during the video, you can hear the a cop state “we’re taking care of it,” while another parent responded “bulls**t, he ain’t dead yet.”
Some have argued that cops are less likely to place their own lives and careers on the line as a result of being demonized by the public in the wake of George Floyd and other similar incidents.
KENS reports that at least one other kid died due to the actions of the cops. “When the cops came, the cop said: ‘Yell if you need help!’ And one of the persons in my class said ‘help.’ The [shooter] overheard and he came in and shot her,” the boy said.
