Uvalde Cops: Looking Rough & Tough but Full of Fluff

Warning: Violent & Disturbing Video Posted Below

Bless the media for tracking down the truth in Uvalde.    The Austin American-Statesman obtained security camera video that showed Ramos's attack on the school and the law enforcement response - or lack of it.  The video showed the boys in blue looking like little boys with toys, standing on the other end of the school while children died and others huddled in fear wondering if each moment would be the last.  


Some readers understandably can't bring themselves to watch the video.  The video opens with Ramos wrecking his grandfather's truck.   He immediately fires upon the two men at the funeral home who approached him to see if he needed help.  They ran for their lives and were fortunately able to save their lives.  Ramos went into full Terminator mode as he approached the school.  

A teacher called 911 to report his assault as Ramos fired at the school in the parking lot.  She yells at the kids to get in their rooms.  Ramos enters the school at 11:33 AM, completely ninja'ed up, wearing body armor, hunting for a classroom of kids to kill. He finds one and fires for the next two and a half minutes. 

Seven police officers enter at 11:36:00 AM, rushing to the massacre as Ramos continued to fire at kids.   Some wear body armor and at least one has a rifle.  Two are by the classroom door while the others provide cover in the hallway.  Ramos fires at the police officers at 11:37:00.  They don't return fire but turn tail and run back down the hallway.  It appears no officers provided covering fire.  Two of the offers were wounded but not seriously.  One of the officers nearest the classroom had a rifle.  This must be the officer who asked for permission to shoot and never received a response.  

No rescue attempt happens for another thirty minutes as more officers arrive until one end of the hallway looks like a Rambo party as cops mill around doing nothing.  They sure looked mighty tough with their body armor, helmets, shields, rifles, and other toys.  In fact, that is what they were, toy cops.  They finally approach the classroom at 12:21 PM, nearly an hour later.  They breach the classroom at 12:50 PM.  You are reading the time stamps correctly.  

Kingfish note: Keep in mind if such an event in Mississippi happened, heaven forbid, we would not see these videos.  The police in Mississippi got special protections written into the law for their screwups, cowardice, or incompetence when it takes place.  The Uvalde video would fall under the "investigation exemption."  The same exemption would apply to any after action reviews or reports.  Just as the Commissioner of Agriculture is doing for the Mudbug shootout.  They managed to get 911 calls exempted from public records requests a little over a decade ago.  You should have heard the boys in blue crying at the capitol about how the public shouldn't know what happens in law enforcement.  They also fought making arrest reports public as is standard in every other state but thankfully that effort failed.  

Thanks to reader who reminded me.  A cop is so concerned with saving the kids, he washes his hands with hand sanitizer (3:21) as the police prepare to breach the room.

I don’t understand how you could be fully armed with 50 other fully armed men with you for support while there’s kids being murdered 50 feet away from you and you just stand there looking at your phone, sanitizing your hands, looking bored almost.

Absolutely infuriating. Pure cowardice.

Every single one of them in the hall should be forced to resign. It really is that simple.

@12:19 - there is no chance that any officer other than that chief will face any repercussions. The chief will be forced to switch departments. They have no legal duty to take any action and aren't held accountable even when caught lying in their reports. A random group of 5 men from the town would have been more effective at protecting the school than these overpaid amateurs.

The first two officers were all-in. Then, everything stalls.

Those were not police men. They were only people collecting pay for trying to be something they were never and could never be. Every single one should be fired immediately. I can not imagine how the parent's of the children who were killed feels looking at that film. Any police force should be ashamed for having such people on the pay role and any of the people in the film should be ashamed to collect pay for such cowardly actions.

at the 3:21 mark, a dude is using the hand sanitizer dispenser for his hands. Good Lord.

They act like this was a crazy guy holed up alone in his house. In that situation, you certainly wait, you gather forces, etc. But instead this was a case where a guy had innocents he was killing. Every second you wait could be another dead victim. This is absolutely unreal and infuriating to watch.

I'm speechless.

One of those tough guys checked his phone while he was waiting. He had the Punisher skull as his background. Which makes so much sense. Of course he did. Ever since the lionization of Chris Kyle and the "sheepdog" BS, all those "punishers" have spent their time making themselves look cool and cosplaying. Every one of those cowards should have to have that Punisher BS tattooed right on their forehead.

Cameras. They change everything. For years the word and reports of police officers were taken as gospel by most of the conservative masses. Questioning their motives or actions was considered unpatriotic and even criminal. But there have always been bad cops, and even cowardly cops, but until cameras became so universal, the whistle-blowers were just whistling in the wind. There are mostly good cops but only now the public is beginning to see that it's too easy for the bad ones to hide and the profession needs more scrutiny than it's been given.

Anonymous said...

Do these cops deserve criticism? Absolutely. But its shocking that most everyone on this page thinks there is nothing wrong with an 18 year old kid (who was unemployed mind you) can buy two AR-15 rifles, with 1500+ rounds of ammo, seventeen 30 round magazines, kevlar, and hellfire trigger mods without even so much as a question of "what are you using all this for?". The kid basically modified this gun to be a machine gun, and we think the cops should just run right in with their service glock without even thinking. Maybe they should have. but we can do better as a society to prevent this from happening in the first place.

Anonymous said...

@1:12 You have a valid point. But taking AR-15s away from the honest and law abiding citizen, while still allowing the criminal to have one is not the solution to preventing this from happening.

i didn’t see any cops in those videos, just 🐷 aka scared bullies with guns.

Anonymous said...

I agree with & thank you for warning about video. To see those officers stand there with guns, ammo & protection; while those sweet innocent children had nothing to aid them. My only tears are for the families and friends of all these victims. These innocent souls are part of God’s Army now & forever. I will never understand this behavior or have an answer as to why. May the peace of knowing these will never suffer another minute on earth supersede all of our pain. We all cry watching this.

They knew what their job was...they ran. Send them all to prison.

Your problem with this is the 18-year-old was legally able to purchase these guns? That's the main problem, you see?

With all the illegal immigrants, drugs, the human trafficking, and no telling what else, coming over the boarder, you don't think this person could have purchased a gun? If he was determined to commit this evil, he would have found a weapon.

This was a lone wolf attack. Nearly impossible to predict or stop. Your concern is with the gun when you should be focused on the mental health issues in this country.

Mental health is the problem, not guns.

I have been to more than one “Active Shooter Class” given by former Law Enforcement.
Every single one gives this same type of cowardly advice to run away and hide. Once, the lecturer told us to band together and use sturdy office equipment as offensive weapons.

The truth is that they should just let us all have guns. Everyone, everywhere. It will literally stop all mass shootings. We will definitely still have shootings. Why? Because armed law-abiding citizens will band together and shoot every single violent criminal that gets the notion to use a gun.

The word term “mass shooting” will transform in the lexicon to mean that “an act by a crowd of armed citizens that riddled an armed criminal(s) full of bullets” and we won’t see the current type of mass shooting every again.

Anonymous said...

Can't bring myself to watch but just read the article. My main question is were there not windows into the classroom where they could have put someone outside beneath the window and distracted him by hitting the door and the person outside pops up and shoots him? Seems pretty simple. I have also see where the door wasn't even locked they just never tried to open it. Not sure if that is true since I didn't watch the video.

Hand sanitizer dude should have called in a donut order. Thanks to cameras for exposing them. If law enforcement is the last resort you've lost already

Anonymous said...

Haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but from what I am hearing only one of the responding officers followed procedure and sanitized his hands.

Also someone forgot the donuts?

No wonder they wanted to keep this video from the public.

Austin America-Statesman, newspaper who got and released video, supports "defund police" and outlawing guns and backs Beto O'Rourke for governor: Austin City Council took away ~$150M+/- from police and told angry citizens and businesses they couldn't refund the police without taking it away from Libraries. So if you see a killing in Austin? Call a Librarian, which is what some of these Uvalde LE officers should be.

The kid should have been stopped before he even opened the door to the school. Forget about the police, we know they were useless, if there were any grown men in the area the kid should have never made it into the school. We need more men who will act like grown men should.

@2:51 You realize that the cartels smuggle American guns into Mexico right?

Anonymous said...

EVERYONE CALM DOWN understaffed JPD has an officer checking speed on I55 every day. Keep calm.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I'm fully aware that guns are smuggled into Mexico. I'm sure there are some, somewhere, still floating around that Holder, and the Obama administration put into circulation. Are you aware of that?

The cartels are better armed than the Mexican law enforcement. Are you saying this murderer couldn't have purchased a gun on the streets that close to the border?

Just what are you saying about my comment? My point is plain. Mental health needs to be addressed and acted upon. If a person has determined to act as this person did, they will find what's needed to complete the act.

I would say there are billions of small arm weapons around the world, billions. Right now, there are fears in Europe that the flood of weapons sent to Ukraine will find their way to the black market. A fear well grounded in reality.

The "let's gather all the guns up" ship has sailed. Your attempt to stop, or confiscate, guns will only lead to a bigger black market. Those that would use guns for illegal acts will find them.

"When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns," is a true saying. The government couldn't stop the sell of alcohol with prohibition, they won't be able to stop the black market sell of guns.

Anonymous said...


Yes, we are fully aware of that fact. We are also aware of the fact that the Obama DOJ allowed a large and undisclosed number of illegal AR-15 straw purchases during ProjectGunrunner

The claim is that they wanted to track the serial numbers in Mexico. The truth was revealed when they attempted to then politicize the "discovery" of some of the serial numbers of these AR-15s were used to kill US Border Patrol agents. Agents dead because of Liberal Democrats obsession with banning AR-15s.

The same former VPOTUS who lied as POTUS, about US Border Patrol "whipping" illegal border crossers at the Rio Grande.

Coulda Shoulda

The shooter had to have known in advance back door wasn't locked, likely would have been on security video casing it out day(s) before. He may have even previously walked into building and found classroom door lock was broken. Security should have noticed, in advance, and called LE.

Every one of them was more worried about their pension. They should all be prosecuted for depraved indifference to the murders on their watch. Not one "man" in the video.

Father of two patrolmen said...

That was incredibly painful to watch and brought tears to my eyes. Children are being shot while hanging out in the hallway? I cannot wrap my head around it. Two men went in as they should have...the rest should have followed and had their back. Yes, there may have been collateral damage but there wasn't anything to stop and think about except stop the carnage as quickly as possible. I have no idea what the chickenshit that signaled the rest to stay back was thinking. He should be fired yesterday. Don't get me started on the hand sanitizing.

Rates of mentally ill people are about the same in all modern countries. Rates of mass shootings are not.

The "give everyone a pulse a gun" versus "take away everything but bb guns" argument is a false dichotomy pushed out by gun makers (via bought and paid for politicians). There is nothing wrong with reasonable regulation (background checks, training and certification, etc.) that a vast majority of Americans support. If you can't go to the trouble of proving you can (or at least want to learn how to) safely handle a firearm, you don't need one. Those of us raised with guns and taught gun safety might think it's mildly inconvenient, but too many people - even the ones who aren't nutjobs - have no idea how to handle the weapons they're purchasing.

Anonymous said...

@1:45 AM
The you increase in mass shootings, specifically school shootings, came AFTER the Brady Bill was passed. Literally the last time you gun grabbing leftists said “we need reasonable regulation and background checks” so why in the hell should we believe you again? Oh thats right, you are trying to convince ignorant children who weren’t around the last time we tried this. The Clinton Assault Weapons Ban and the Brady Bill didn’t do shit to stop crime. Just made life harder for the law abiding.

Anonymous said...

In the end, though, despite assurances to the contrary from the “reasonable gun control supported by the majority of the people” proponents and THEIR bought-and-paid for politicians, once they have their way — and they will eventually have it too — regular folk will have no capability of self-defense.

Well, that’s not entirely true. We can call 911 and just wait for UPD to respond.

Repeal the 2nd amendment. It’s clear that Americans can’t handle their gun rights. Make possession of a gun a life sentence. If guns are more important to you than children, then you aren’t worth having.

July 14, 2022 at 8:33 AM; what are you gonna do if a criminal, that already doesn't give a fuck about the laws they are already breaking, decides to kick in your front door, beat you over the head, and make you watch as they rape your wife and daughter? then they shoot your whole family starting with the dog and working their way up from the youngest to you. might be far-fetched, might not.

what do you think is gonna happen if law abiding citizens can't own guns? do you honestly think a criminal is going to turn over their illegal guns if guns are outlawed, when they know there will be no one to stop them from committing any crime they want? take away your right to own a gun and all someone would need is a simple baseball bat and they could kill you and your entire family.

are you really that stupid to not even think beyond your own emotions? i would even argue that you, and others that think like you are more dangerous than any criminal.

First they blame rock music, then they blame video games, then they blame rap music, then they blame family structures, then they blame mental illness. Keep grasping and eventually you will get to the true culprit - guns.

Anonymous said...

you folks asking for gun training in order to buy a gun don't seem to have any logic or critical thinking skills. i'm not aware of a single mass shooting anywhere, ever, that occurred because the shooter didn't have proper firearm training. not aware of a case where everyone was shot due to negligent/accidental discharges. i'm pretty sure every bullet was fired with an intent to kill. you don't need training for that. all training would do is make the killer a better killer.

Anonymous said...

10:38 ... how strange. I've owned a gun since I was 13 years old and it NEVER killed anyone. I'm pretty old now. How would you explain that? 'Keep grasping' and you will figure out it is more than likely the psychotropic drugs being given these children since first grade. Yes, it's true. Look it up instead of blaming a gun for murder. How many pills you take??? Obviously too many.

God I love reading the comments on this site. The most despicable, horrible things can happen in our society with glaringly obvious causes and the fools on this site will retreat into a hard case of denial. Maybe if a bunch of tough guy cops are too afraid to confront a kid with an assault rifle, then that weapon shouldn't be in the hands of everyday citizens? Maybe it's meant for a battlefield? It's comical. Gun nuts put these cops in that position and then slam them for being the pussies that they are. Some of you think this isnt a problem and blame minorities and liberals and gays for the current condition of this country. Simply a distraction fed to you by Rupert and Co. at fox news.

Mississippi will have a mass shooting. It's inevitable with the current state of things and the fact that there are so many ARs out there right now. Can't avoid it. Put all the cops you want at the school. Build the school to resemble a penitentiary. All you dipshits will have blood on your hands for that one. None of you will even entertain the idea that you are somehow responsible for this bullshit. It's not your kid.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required.
