Victims’ Families Outraged After Uvalde Shooting Report

( – The families of victims of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting are speaking out in outrage after a new report came out stating that the police did nothing wrong when responding to the shooting.

There was initial controversy over the police’s slow response to the shooting, but a private investigator, Jesse Prado, said that the officers acted in good faith in response. “You call that good faith? They stood there 77 minutes,” said Veronica Mata, whose 10-year-old daughter was killed. An ex-student, Salvador Ramos killed 19 students and two teachers during the attack.

During Prado’s speech, many parents were seen walking out before it was finished due to their thoughts on the supposed findings. He said that overall the police didn’t commit serious misconduct during the time.

However, he did state that there were communication issues and poor training when it came to active shooter situations, as well as delays breaching the classroom that the gunman was in.

Ms. Mata said that the police “waited after they got call after call that kids were still alive in there.” Previous reports have shown that the police work during the active shooting at the school was not up to par.

Close to 400 police officers responded to the shooting, but it took over an hour for them to arrive. According to reports, the policemen were standing outside waiting while the gunman was inside shooting dozens of people. The report focused on the slow response and they said that the police didn’t understand that there was an active shooter on the premises and there were “cascading failures of leadership, decision-making, tactics, policy, and training”.
