    A gunman killed at least 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, about 90 miles west of San Antonio, on Tuesday.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott said May 24 the shooter, a local 18-year-old, has died, believed to have been killed by responding law enforcement. He identified the attacker as Salvador Ramos, saying he was armed with a handgun, and possibly a rifle.

    The governor added, “It is believed that two responding offers were struck by rounds, but have no serious injuries.”

    Some students and staff are being treated in nearby hospitals.

    The incident is believed to be the worst school shooting since the 2012 attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, in which in the attacker killed 26.

    Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller of San Antonio tweeted, "God have mercy on our children, their families, their communities. Darkness is dense with one more shooting in our country. Let us help one another to spark light and warmth. May we keep each other in company. Prayers are needed."

    And Bishop Michael Olson of Fort Worth has tweeted, "Let us pray for the families of these children killed or traumatized by this evil action and let us take serious steps forward in protecting vulnerable life and promoting justices for the safety of our children."

    "This story was updated"

    When they stop updating it then the story will stop changing.

    But the nature or implied intent of "the story" will not change. It will just "settle."

    Wouldn't it still be a story?

    A story is by derivation a short history, and by development a narrative designed to interest and please. [Century Dictionary]
    As a euphemism for "a lie" it dates from 1690s.

    Thank goodness, more and more people are able to recognize "a true story" and "a false story." When there a large numbers of people killed it is difficult to find the truth, but the truth will always win out eventually.

    I do not know anything at all about this particular event, however, I did judge it worthy of posting on this forum.

    All I can do is pray for the souls involved and pray for those who want to find the whole truth.

    Police waited to enter Texas school as shooter went on killing spree: witness
    By Allie Griffin




    Jacinto Cazares, the father of 10-year-old victim Jackie Cazares, believes police could of prevented the incident from escalating. ZUMA24.com

    The teenage madman who slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers in a Texas school spent more than 40 minutes inside as witnesses desperately urged police to charge into the building, it was *revealed Wednesday.

    Salvador Ramos barricaded himself inside the classroom before opening fire on students and teachers inside. Border Patrol agents finally breached the door about 40 minutes to an hour later when a staff member gave them a key.

    Now a father of one of the dead children is blaming officers at the scene for not acting sooner to stop the gunman.

    Jacinto Cazares raced to Robb Elementary School when he heard about the shooting and arrived while police were still gathered outside.

    While he watched anxiously at the officers standing outside his daughter’s school, he suggested storming into the school building himself alongside other civilian bystanders.

    “Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” he said he told other onlookers. “More could have been done.”

    “There was at least 40 lawmen armed to the teeth but didn’t do a darn thing [until] it was far too late,” Cazares, the father of 10-year-old victim Jackie Cazares, told ABC News.

    A witness who lived across the street from the elementary school, said onlookers begged officers outside the school to do something as bullets rang inside the building.

    “Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers who did not go inside, 24-year-old Juan Carranza said.

    Local police, state police and 80 Border Patrol officers swarmed to the scene. Four of the 80 Border Patrol officers entered the school building and killed Ramos, according to a Customs and Border Protection official.

    Carranza felt the officers should have barged into the school quicker.

    “There were more of them, there was just one of him,” he said.

    U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said in a Wednesday interview with CNN that as soon as the Border Patrol officers arrived, “they didn’t hesitate.”

    “They didn’t hesitate. They came up with a plan,” Ortiz told the outlet. “They entered that classroom and they took care of the situation as quickly as they possibly could.”

    Carranza said he first watched Ramos crash his truck in a ditch outside the school, grab a AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle and shoot at, and miss, two people outside a nearby funeral home.

    The mass shooter then fired at a school district security officer, ran inside the elementary school and shot at two arriving Uvalde police officers outside the building, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesperson, who added that all three officers were injured.

    It’s unclear whether the school security officer shot back at Ramos.

    Ramos barged into one classroom, locked the door behind him and allegedly began massacring fourth-grade students and their teachers, according to the public safety department.

    Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw said it was “within 40 minutes or so” from when the 18-year-old opened fire on the school security officer to when the Border Patrol team shot him.

    The specialized, SWAT-like team known as the Border Patrol Tactical Unit struggled to breach the classroom door and had to get a staff member to open it with a key, a law enforcement official who requested anonymity told the Associated Press.

    Cazares said the officers needed better tactical training and and were unprepared.

    “The situation could’ve been over quick if they had better tactical training, and we as a community witnessed it firsthand,” he told ABC News.

    He also said young people like the 18-year-old who killed his daughter shouldn’t be able to buy guns.

    “I’m a gun owner and I do not blame the weapons used in this tragedy. I’m angry how easy it is to get one and how young you can be to purchase one,” he said.

    DEMOCRAT CRASHES PRESSER Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke crashed a press conference led by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on the school shooting at Uvalde, Texas. O'Rourke shouted: “The time to stop the next shooting is right now and you are doing nothing!” Don McLaughlin, the mayor of Uvalde, yelled back at O'Rourke, “Sir, you are out of line! Please leave this auditorium.”

    ‘You’re A Sick Son Of A B****’: Chaos Erupts After Beto O’Rourke Crashes Greg Abbott Press Conference On Uvalde Shooting
    By Tim Pearce

    May 25, 2022 DailyWire.com




    Beto O’Rourke, a Democratic candidate for Texas governor, interrupted a press conference led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) on Wednesday before being escorted out of the event by law enforcement.

    After Abbott opened the press conference and handed off comments to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, O’Rourke approached the stage and began yelling at the Texas governor. Law enforcement stopped O’Rourke short of the stage.


    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), standing behind Abbott on the stage, told O’Rourke to “sit down and don’t play this stuff” as O’Rourke approached the stage scolding Abbott.

    “The time to stop the next shooting is right now and you are doing nothing. You are offering us nothing,” O’Rourke said. “This is totally predictable when you choose not to do anything.”

    “Please get his a** outta here,” a man on stage can be heard telling law enforcement.


    “Sir, you are out of line. Please leave this auditorium” the man yelled down to O’Rourke. “I can’t believe. You’re a sick son of a b****, you would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.”

    O’Rourke has been a vocal advocate for extensive gun control measures up to government confiscation of AR-15 rifles. He has since backed off that position.

    A mass shooter killed at least 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in Uvalde on Tuesday. A Border Patrol agent engaged and fatally shot the gunman. Three law enforcement officers were injured while engaging the gunman.


    Abbott called the press conference to give the public an update on the state of the investigation into the Uvalde shooting. Before O’Rourke’s interruption, the governor said that the shooter was an 18-year-old and reportedly a high school dropout with no criminal history, though the shooter may have a juvenile record.

    The only red flag from the shooter’s past so far that may have foretold the shooting came in the form of several posts on social media the day of the shooting, Abbott said. One post sent roughly 15 minutes before the shooting said, “I’m going to shoot an elementary school,” according to the governor.

    Abbott said that law enforcement and local officials in the Uvalde community requested help in dealing with mental health issues in the community.

    “Some physical wounds that were sustained by the officers, they’re going to heal in the coming days. The mental and emotional wounds are far harder to see, and last far longer. The state of Texas working with federal and local officials in agencies, we’re going to be here for a long, long time,” Abbott said. “And one key point that we will focus on is making sure that everybody in this community has the access they need – for as long as they need it – to address the mental and emotional healthcare needs that they have.”

    “Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses. It is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
    H.L. Mencken

    "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

    Dachsie comment:

    Good coverage by Roman of Facts Matter, but he, like almost every other alternative news sites I watch immediately showed extreme skepticism at the sketchy official story.

    Frirst guy they are showing in this video sounded false and rehearsed. Fake excited tone and odd phony phrasing somewhat like some phony guy at the scene of 9-11-01 , maybe like " the Harley guy."
