Uvalde residents in the grip of anger, anguish as details emerge on police response to shooting

Aamna Nawaz:

Certainly, as we mentioned, there will be some level of accountability. Police response will be investigated at the state, possibly even federal level.

But parents here know that there is nothing to hold their kids back. And Uvalde now, like so many communities that have suffered from this kind of violence, has been changed forever, isn’t it? But it raises a lot of questions, Judy, we’re hearing here about how much more can be done to protect students, how much more can be done to toughen up schools, when you have a situation like this. , in this case the gunman with two assault rifles and, officials revealed today, more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition.

The steps taken here, which were implemented in schools across the country, did not work. There was no police officer on the spot. The door was not closed. And when the police arrived, they didn’t do what they were trained to do. They did not cope and eventually neutralized the gunman until several of the children were dead.

And so we’re left with the big question, because now that’s what kids are trained to do, isn’t it? It is astonishing to see how much security burden has been placed on the children in this situation in the last three days.

All children in America go through a lockdown drill. My kids, many of our viewers, kids as young as 4 or 5, they know their hiding place. They know they have to go and shut up. And when you talk to the kids here, they did exactly that.

Even though the adults didn’t do what they were trained to do, the children did. I talked to a third grader yesterday, an 8-year-old, who told me, even though he was in the cafeteria during lunch when the shooting happened, he knew he had to run and hide. And he did exactly that, even though it wasn’t in his class where he ran through those exercises.

And I asked him, how did you know this? Did a teacher tell you? Did an officer tell you? And she said: “No. No one told me. I just knew I had to” – Judy.
