Texas Police Open Internal Review of Uvalde Shooting

UVALDE, Texas, USA ( Associated Press) – The Texas Department of Public Safety on Monday announced an internal investigation into the actions of state police during the Uvalde school massacre.

The investigation comes a day after the state House of Representatives released an 80-page report that uncovered loopholes at all levels of policing. Findings show that more than 90 state police officers were present at Robb Elementary School during the May 24 attack.

It is the first time the Texas Department of Public Safety has said it will investigate the actions of its own elements in the two months since the deadliest school shooting in Texas history.

The DSP said in a statement that the review would determine whether there was a “violation of policy, law or principle” during the chaotic response to the attack in which 19 children and two teachers were killed in a fourth grade classroom. He said the evaluation started last week.

The agency’s director, Steve McCraw, had previously referred to the police’s response to the massacre as a “disappointing failure”. He accused the school district police chief of not storming the class soon enough.

The findings of an investigative commission released on Sunday were the first to criticize both state and federal police, not just local officials in the South Texas city, for their lack of action by heavily armed officers, as the assailant struck inside two quarters. Bullets were fired. classes.

The pictures from body cameras of the city police, which were released hours later, only emphasized the flaws and fueled the anger and frustration of the families of the victims.

“That’s ridiculous. Disgusting,” said Michael Brown, whose 9-year-old son was in the school cafeteria on the day of the shooting and survived. “They’re cowards.”

According to a House Investigation Committee report, about 400 police officers reported the school, but “remarkably poor decision-making” resulted in chaos for more than an hour, before the attacker was finally killed. He was confronted and killed.
