The Uvalde Police Department and the Uvalde Independent School District police force are no longer cooperating with the Texas Department of Public Safety’s investigation into the massacre at Robb Elementary School and the state’s review of the law enforcement response, multiple law enforcement sources tell ABC News.
There was a lot made of the fact that 40% of the Uvalde municipal budget went to the Uvalde PD and their cosplay SWAT team, but as far as I can tell, the Uvalde School District police force is not part of the municipal budget, so that town is also spending a significant amount of money on cops in the school budget. (The phrase “Uvalde School District police force” says a whole lot about what’s wrong with this country, btw.)
In further news, the investigators are walking back the claim that a door was propped open, which allowed the gunman to enter the building. The new account says that a teacher had propped open the door with a rock. When she heard the gunman crash his truck, she removed the rock she had used to prop open the door and closed it, but for some reason the door didn’t lock.
The contrast between the sniveling, lying cowardice of this group of donut chompers, and the bravery of retired Buffalo PD officer Aaron Salter, just gets stronger every day.
