Uvalde Cops Refused to Enter the School While Shooting was Happening

As terrified parents of children locked inside Robb Elementary School with a gunman wielding an AR-15-style rifle looked on from behind a police barrier on Tuesday morning, they repeatedly urged dozens of officers on the scene to charge the building. Instead, some of the parents were restrained and pinned to the ground. “Go in there! Go in there!” women shouted at police officers soon after the attack began, according to Juan Carranza, who lives across the street from the school and told AP about parents’ efforts to get the police to confront the shooter.

If this is true, it really looks bad on the police there. Cops are supposed to run to where the trouble is, not stand around and do nothing. And the bugegst issue here will be how many lives they could’ve saved if they had gone in sooner.
