Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
Investigators have made a disturbing discovery as they piece together the timeline of the grade school massacre in Texas.
It turns out police waited more than 40 minutes to storm the school building.
In effect, giving the killer plenty of time to slaughter 19 fourth graders, two teachers and injure 17 others.
Video shows horrified parents pleading with police to breach the building.
At one point a man suggested they bypass the police and storm the building themselves, the Associated Press reported.
“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.
Javier Cazares, whose fourth grade daughter, Jacklyn Cazares, was killed in the attack, said he raced to the school when he heard about the shooting, arriving while police were still gathered outside the building.
Upset that police were not moving in, he raised the idea of charging into the school with several other bystanders.
“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” he said. “More could have been done.”Associated Press
The gunman was later taken out by a Border Patrol agent.
Another missed opportunity – social media.
Investigators say the gunman posted three online messages warning about his plans.
How is it those messages were not intercepted – especially considering how many safeguards social media has to intercept hate speech?
Questions that deserve answers, but our elected leaders are too busy strategizing to take away our guns.
The gunman may not be the only one with blood on their hands in Uvalde, Texas.
