By New York Post. No rational person can look at what happened — more accurately, what didn’t happen — in Uvalde and use the term “police response” with a straight face.
Can we even call this a failure? It feels more like dereliction of duty, the greatest collective act of cowardice in modern American history.
And the powers that be in Texas continue to lie, deflect and defend the police who stood aside, literally, for over an hour as an active shooter terrorized Robb Elementary in Uvalde. . .
Whoever leaked absolutely did the right thing: Uvalde officials cannot be trusted to do the right thing, as the video proves.
To watch the first few minutes — to see a little boy spy the gunman from around a corner and run the other way, to see the gunman turn left, disappear from view, and then to hear the pure firepower of an assault rifle as it’s aimed at fourth-graders — is to get viscerally, unforgettably close to this particular American horror.

Uvalde Mayor Calls Media ‘Chicken’ for Video Leak of Cops’ Response to School Shooting
By New York Post. The embattled Uvalde, Texas, mayor attacked the media Tuesday and called them “chicken” for releasing video of the cops’ feeble response to the May school shooting that killed 19 kids in his town.
“That was the most chicken way to put this video out today,” Mayor Don McLoughlin said in a city council meeting following the Austin American-Statesman release of the 77-minute-long video. It was originally supposed to be shown to the grieving families on Sunday and then released to the public.
“There was no reason for those families to have to see that. They were going to see the video but they didn’t need to see the gunman coming in and hear the gunshots,” the mayor added. “They don’t need to relive that. They’ve been through enough.”
The disturbing video shows how police officers dillydallied in the hallway of Robb Elementary School instead of charging toward 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos as he systematically slaughtered 21 people on May 24.

Watch Uvalde School Shooting Video Obtained by Statesman Showing Police Response
By Austin American-Statesman. The gunman walks into Robb Elementary School unimpeded, moments after spraying bullets from his semi-automatic rifle outside the building and after desperate calls to 911 from inside and outside the Uvalde school. . .
The gunman enters one of the classrooms. Children scream. The gunfire continues, stops, then starts again. Stops, then starts again. And again. And again.
It is almost three minutes before three officers arrive in the same hallway and rush toward the classrooms, crouching down. Then, a burst of gunfire. One officer grabs the back of his head. They quickly retreat to the end of the hallway, just below a school surveillance camera.
A 77-minute video recording captured from this vantage point, along with body camera footage from one of the responding officers, obtained by the American-Statesman and KVUE, shows in excruciating detail dozens of sworn officers, local, state and federal — heavily armed, clad in body armor, with helmets, some with protective shields — walking back and forth in the hallway, some leaving the camera frame and then reappearing, others training their weapons toward the classroom, talking, making cellphone calls, sending texts and looking at floor plans, but not entering or attempting to enter the classrooms.
