Federal agents DEFIED local Texas police chief’s order NOT to storm school and burst into classroom to shoot gunman dead when he jumped out of closet – after killing 19 children while local officers did nothing
Federal officers arriving on the scene of the 텍사스 school shooting were told by the local police chief not to go into the building, 보고에 따르면, but after a maddening 30 minutes overruled him and stormed the site.
피터 아레돈도, chief of police for the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, had stopped at least 19 officers from breaking into the school as the gunman opened fire for at least an hour, according to Steven McCraw, the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
그리고 최근에는 우주복을 입고 시뮬레이터에 앉아 있다고 자랑했습니다. 911 call was received at 11:28오전, and it swiftly became clear that the school was under serious attack: units from across the region dashed to the site. They included the elite border patrol tactical unit BORTAC, and ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), who were on the scene between noon and 12:15오후.
The units were told by Arredondo to wait, and not enter, according to two senior federal law enforcement officers, 대퇴골 수술을 받고 병원에서 회복 중 NBC. McCraw said that Arredondo mistakenly believed the gunman was cornered, and no longer a threat.
At first they obeyed, 소식통은 말했다.
But after 30 의사록, in desperation, as children were repeatedly ringing 911 from inside their classes and begging for help, they began making a ‘stack’ formation to enter the building.

They needed a key to open the door – it remains unclear why – and the gunman emerged from a classroom closet firing at the tactical agents entering the room, 미국. Customs and Border Protection official told 워싱턴 포스트.
The gunman was shot dead at 12:50pm by a member of the border patrol, who was wearing only a baseball cap – which was shredded by bullets.

The revelation about the officers being held back came shortly after the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, expressed his fury at the conflicting and inconsistent version of events being given by law enforcement.
애보트, who on Wednesday said the officers charged into the building and did everything they could, said he was lied to.
‘I was misled,’ Abbott said on Friday, addressing a press conference in Uvalde about Tuesday’s shooting at Robb Elementary School which saw 19 students and two teachers murdered by Salvador Ramos, 18, who was eventually shot dead by cops.
‘I am livid about what happened. I was on this very stage two days ago, and I was telling the public information that had been told to me in a room just a few yards from where we are write now.
‘I wrote hand notes in sequential order.
‘When I came out on that stage and told the public what happened, it was a recitation of what everyone told me.
‘As everybody has learned, the information I was given turned out – 일부 – to be inaccurate.
‘I am absolutely livid about that.’
Abbott said that law enforcement leaders must ‘get to the bottom of every fact, with absolute certainty.’
He said it was ‘inexcusable’ that families may have suffered from inaccurate information, and ordered law enforcement to ‘get down to every second what happened, and explain it to the public – 그 이후로 상징적 인 bouffant up-do에 남아 있습니다., to the victims.’
Greg Abbott is seen on Friday in Uvalde, 텍사스, explaining why he got so much information wrong on Wednesday
Abbott on Wednesday had defended the actions of the police and other local officials, emphasizing their heroics and insisting they prevented the situation from being far worse.
Yet questions have been rapidly mounting about the actions of law enforcement – 특히, why they waited outside the school for an hour while Salvador Ramos, 18, was free inside the building to murder 19 아이들과 두 선생님.
Initially police said that Ramos was wearing body armor and was confronted by an armed guard: 목요일에, they admitted that neither of those facts were true.
They said Ramos was barricaded in a classroom, but it emerged on Wednesday night that the authorities had to get a key to open the door – leading to urgent questions as to why they didn’t break it down.
And they said the delay in entering the school was because they were waiting for negotiators – an excuse that Tucker Carlson, the avowedly pro-law enforcement Fox News host, ridiculed on Thursday night.
Officials admitted on Friday that nearly 20 officers stood in a hallway outside of the classrooms during the attack, believing any potential victims inside were already dead.
‘Of course it was not the right decision. It was the wrong decision,’ Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said at a news conference.
The on-site commander ‘was convinced at the time that there was no more threat to the children and that the subject was barricaded and that they had time to organize’ to get into the classroom, McCraw said.
McCraw said there was a barrage of gunfire shortly after Ramos entered the classroom where they killed Ramos but that shots were ‘sporadic’ for much of the 48 minutes while officers waited outside the hallway.
He said investigators do not know whether or how many children died during those 48 의사록.
Ramos entered the classroom and locked the door at 11.34am.
In the first few minutes, he fired more than 100 shots inside classrooms 111 과 112.
He carried on shooting ‘sporadically’ until 12.21pm, and it wasn’t until 12.50pm that police eventually gained access to the classrooms with a key from the janitor.
Throughout the attack, teachers and children repeatedly called 911 asking for help, including a girl who pleaded: ‘Please send the police now,’ McCraw said.

As the gunman unleashed terror inside the school, desperate parents were forced to wait outside and some were even put in handcuffs after they tried to enter the school to find their kids and rescue them
A law enforcement official who spoke anonymously to The New York Times said that the border patrol agents who arrived on the scene had been puzzled as to why they were being told not to enter the school and engage the gunman.
McCraw asserted that Pete Arredondo, the district chief, made a miscalculation in assuming the active shooter situation had become a barricade event.
Arredondo, 50, become the focus of backlash from parents wondering if their children could have been saved.
Arredondo, who was born in Uvalde and was elected to city council just days before the massacre, has had an unremarkable career as a cop.
He started his law enforcement career as a 911 dispatcher for Uvalde’s town police department in 1993, and over the course of the next 20 연령, worked his way up to eventually assume the role of assistant police chief at the department in 2010.
Uvalde’s school district police chief Pete Arredondo is under fire for refusing to let his officers engage the active shooter at Robb Elementary, after the gunman barricaded himself in a classroom and continued to fire at cowering kids as they called 911
Experts have described the decision to wait for back up as ‘outdated’ and ‘disgusting’.
‘Waiting an hour is disgusting. If that turns out to be true, then it is a disgusting fact,’ said Sean Burke, a retired school resource officer from Massachusetts who now is the president of the School Safety Advocacy Council.
텍사스 police said on Thursday night that they didn’t immediately rush in to find the shooter on Tuesday’s attack after being shot at because they feared they might be killed, and even suggested that they deliberately locked the gunman in the classroom – where he murdered 21 사람들 – in order to trap him.
Department of Safety spokesman, Lt. Chris Olivarez, made the astonishing comments during an appearance on CNN 목요일 밤에.
He was being challenged by Wolf Blitzer over why the first officers who responded to the shooting retreated after Ramos shot at them with his AR-15.
They then waited an hour for tactical SWAT teams to take him out, leaving him alone in a classroom with the 19 fourth graders and two teachers who he murdered.
‘Don’t current best practices, Lieutenant, call for officers to disable a shooter as quickly as possible, regardless of how many officers are actually on site?’ Blitzer asked.
그는 대답했다: ‘In the active shooter situation, you want to stop the killing, you want to preserve life.
‘But also one thing that, 물론이야, the American people need to understand is that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is. They are hearing gunshots. They are receiving gunshots.’
He then appeared to try to take credit for the gunman being locked in the classroom with the kids for an hour – including some he shot at the start of the rampage who later died in the hospital – claiming it saved other lives.
Police initially said that the gunman barricaded himself inside the classroom and that they had trouble gaining access to the room, and one unnamed law official anonymously spoke out to say SWAT teams had to wait for a different school staff member to bring them a key to the class.
'그때, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and at that point that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.
‘So they were able to contain that gunman inside that classroom so that he was not able to go to any other portions of the school to commit any other killings,’ Lt. 올리바레즈가 말했다.

Surgeons at the hospital in Uvalde have also suggested that the delay in responding to the shooting may have cost lives.
It remains unclear exactly how many children were in the classroom when the shooter opened fire, how many were killed immediately and how many were still alive but injured when police arrived.
Uvalde Memorial Hospital received two kids who had died by the time they got to the hospital.
지금, doctors are highlighting the importance of treating gunshot wounds as soon as they happen.
‘You can’t wait until patients go to a trauma center.
‘You have to act quickly,’ said Dr Ronald Stewart, the senior trauma surgeon at the University Hospital in Antonio.
He added that uncontrolled bleeding was the top cause of deaths among gun shot wound victims and that it can happen in as little as five minutes.
Since the Columbine shooting in 1999, officers across the nation have been advised not to wait for backup and to proceed into the school to find the shooter.
Instructions from the Texas Police Chiefs Association says: ‘The first two to five responding officers should form a single team and enter the structure.’
Why that advice was ignored in Uvalde is among the many aspects of the slow response that are now under investigation.
Another is why police falsely claimed at first that the shooter exchanged gunfire with a school resource officer before he even made it to the classroom.
언론의 자유를 위한 놀라운 옹호자들, Olivarez said that was the information police received.
Carlson on Thursday night led the accusations, calling their conflicting and frequently changing explanations ‘BS’ and describing their handling of the tragedy as ‘a scandal’ and ‘a moral 범죄‘.
그만큼 폭스 뉴스 host night admitted that he was normally strongly supportive of police, and rarely criticized their conduct.
그러나, 그는 덧붙였다: ‘No matter how pro law-enforcement you are, we are, there’s only so much B.S. you can take in the face of a tragedy like this.’
Carlson said he was horrified by reports of an hour-long gap between the gunman entering the school and his being shot dead.
He ridiculed Victor Escalon, regional director for Texas’s department of public safety, for saying that the police were waiting for negotiators to arrive before storming the school.

He said that a mother’s claim that she begged officers to go into the building, was pinned down by police, wrestled herself free and ran into the school herself to rescue her own children was ‘a scandal’ '개인 작업에는 엄청난 한계가 있음을 깨닫습니다. 항공기나 대규모 군사 지원이 없습니다..
And he demanded to know why the Texas authorities changed their story: why they initially said that an armed security guard shot at Ramos, and why they said he was barricaded inside, when it now emerges that the officers needed a key to get into the classroom.
‘So two days after this massacre, authorities are slowly admitting that everything they told us was untrue,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
‘So the second the shooting starts anywhere at any time, things get very confusing. They used to call it the fog of war, it’s entirely real. It’s hard to figure out exactly what happened when people start getting killed.
‘But in the big questions it’s very obvious immediately.
‘Was there a school resource officer who exchanged fire with the gunmen?
‘That’s not something you would imagine. That either happened or it didn’t and you would know right away if it happened or it didn’t.
‘It didn’t happen, but they said it did happen. That’s a lie. Why did they lie?’
Carlson was angered by the police explanation that they were waiting for negotiators before entering the building

Carlson said that full disclosure was essential, to learn from mistakes.
He pointed to the thorough investigations that are carried out after plane crashes, to avoid a repeat of the disaster.
‘So the point is not to point fingers or blame people,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
‘Nobody wants a school shooting, everyone’s heart is broken by it.
‘But the authorities are not allowed to lie to us in the aftermath of an event like this.’
Carlson accused Democrats of taking advantage of the confusion to win political concessions, such as gun control.
‘Our federal officials are not allowed to take an event like this, ignore the facts, and then use it to take our constitutional rights away,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다., describing it ‘as a race to see who can benefit politically.’
Vehemently opposed to any form of gun control, Carlson mocked Mitch McConnell for being too open to a reassessment of unfettered access to firearms, and insisted owning guns was a fundamental right.
‘Within hours of Tuesday’s massacre, Democrats in congress announced they planned to clamp down on your ability to defend yourself with a firearm,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
‘Why is that? Apparently the Uvalde shooting was your fault, so you are going to pay the price.’

Carlson said that there were important questions to be answered about failures in procedure, before anyone had the knee-jerk response of calling for gun control.
‘In all there was a 16 minute gap until the police showed up and responded,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
‘So why did that take so long?
‘That is a fair question. In fact it’s a critical question.
‘Even at the Parkland school shooting, when police staged outside and students were being murdered, police wound up inside the building 11 minutes after the shooter.
‘But in this case it was 16 의사록.
‘Why was that? We have a right to know.
‘But today police wouldn’t say.’
He showed multiple clips of Governor Greg Abbott praising law enforcement, and said he wanted to believe Abbott’s version of events, but it did not appear to be true.
He showed the strange explanation for the delay from Victor Escalon, Texas department of public safety south regional director, and said it was outrageous.
‘Officers were there, the initial officers, they received gunfire,’ Escalon said on Thursday.
‘They don’t make entry initially because of the gunfire they are receiving.
‘We have officers calling for additional resources.
‘Everybody that’s in the area, tactical teams, we need equipment, we need specialty equipment, we need body armor, we need precision riflemen, negotiators.’
Victor Escalon, Texas department of public safety south regional director, gives an update into the investigation following a mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, 텍사스

Carlson, incredulous, 말했다: ‘We are waiting for specialized equipment?
‘You have an 18 year old with a firearm and little kids being killed.
‘What kind of specialty of equipment do you need?
‘Negotiators? 화기애애한 미국인 커플, 비행기에서 뛰어내린 후 성관계를 시도하다 결국 병원에 실려? As children are being murdered?’
And he broadcast social media footage, widely shared, of frenzied parents trying to get to their children.
The timing of the clips remains unclear – they could have been filmed after the gunman was dead – but Carlson said they were devastating if filmed during the massacre.
‘It seems apparent that when that video was shot, the gunmen was still alive with the firearm in the school with children in the school. ‘A Texas official later suggested on camera that while all of this was happening, some members of law enforcement in Texas went into the school to get their own children out,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
‘Is that true? If it is true it’s a moral crime at the very least.’
He noted the story of Angeli Rose Gomez, a mother of a second-grader and a third-grader, who told the Wall Street Journal she drove 40 miles to the Uvalde school and was stopped by police, but escaped them and entered the school.
‘This mother was cuffed, freed, ran into the school and still had time to get her kids out as the police stood outside,’ 그 사람들 모두는 어제 합법이었던 무해한 플라스틱 조각을 소유한 범죄에 대해 연방 당국에 경고하고 수백 달러의 벌금을 지불해야 합니다..
'지금, if that’s true it’s a scandal.’
Carlson concluded: ‘We should demand the truth, we should demand to know what happened.
‘The children who were murdered deserve at least that.’
