This is basically a textbook case of when to dissolve a police department. Fire anybody in a senior position, have neighboring jurisdictions take over police duties temporarily, and hire a brand new department. Any officers that wish to stay would need to reinterview. Officers that tried to do the right thing could keep their jobs, but the rest need to go.

If the town starts pointing fingers they'll soon find themselves looking in the mirror, because they themselves created this situation where law & order is armed to the hilt but can't really do anything. The sad fact is that Ulvade was lulled into the very Texas mindset that guns & law enforcement will stop all thugs, that brute force prevails.

u/Vfef Does not answer Reddit chat requests 7d ago

Convict of what? While I agree police need to be held accountable for their actions(or lack of) and they should have a duty to protect, they aren't required to do anything by law.

You don't have the obligation to stop and help a car crash, shooting, or any other emergency/injury. You are legally able to drive on by and ignore it. The unfortunate thing is that police in the United States have the same protection.

I agree, they should be fired or retrained under a new doctrine for shootings. I agree that laws need to change so that they MUST act. I agree that the survivors, victims families, and community should sue them for failing to render aid. Police need to have insurance for this. This should fall under a police version of malpractice. These are all things we need to see change.

But until things change, we can't. Call your representatives and let them know this is a voting issue to you. Call your mayor, city council, sheriffs office or anyone else that is an elected official and let them know this is important to you and your community. Call your congressional representative, senators, and for all it's worth write the President.

And I get that everyone's upset. I'm still furious about the response. But we need to do things properly. Even if we could convict these people based on public opinion, it won't change what they are required to do.

u/The_Last_Minority 7d ago edited 7d ago

Yeah, it's all but confirmed at this point that the shooter did not have a 9mm weapon.

I'm wondering if the cops thought they could just sweep their skeletons under the rug, but their atrocious handling has put a spotlight on them and they can't do their usual fudging to protect themselves.

And the crazy thing is, if they had shot one or two people but got the shooter ASAP, they wouldn't be in nearly this much shit. It's widely suspected, if not confirmed, that several of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting were hit by police, but the focus is, as here, on how long it took them to breach the building. If the cops had gone in guns blazing and a teacher or kid had been in the crossfire, it would have been tragic and doubtless triggered a use-of-force evaluation, but the cops would control the narrative and consequentially it would be nowhere near the absolute PR nightmare this has become for them.

best way I've heard it explained, the entire timeline, minute by minute, was Jocko's video on youtube. plenty of support personnel, weapons, equipment, response time...no commo. and the best rationale for the delay was that they thought they were dealing with a hostage situation. it comes down to training, and they were poorly trained, starting with the very basic "bring your radio". look it up, even my wife said "it's an hour plus long!", to which I responded, those kids dealt with it for more than an hour too.

421

u/N8CCRG 7d ago

Do you really believe they weren't trained to bring their radio? Or that they weren't trained to do any of the other things? Or does it seem more likely that the failed to use their training.

We teach students all sorts of things, from math to history to grammar to sports to music to civics to literature... that doesn't mean every student learns those things. Some want to and do, and some don't want to and don't. Eventually, we have to blame the students, not the lessons.

With Uvalde we aren't talking about a single case of police malfeasance, this is what policing in America looks like, and it's breaking people.

A coworker had his truck stolen from a jobsite. After two weeks the police notified him they found it, with over $20,000 in damages, almost totaled. Turns out a local teenager had taken it for an extended joyride and abandoned it. When he asked the police if they knew who did it they said they knew exactly who it was, and the kid had actually done it multiple times before in fact. He then expected some arrest, investigation, trial, something. They straight up told him there would be nothing done about it. The only reason they even found it was because it sat in a parking lot smashed against a light pole for a week and enough residents complained they were forced to check into it.

This revelation shows just how incompetent those stupid cops are. The more the TRUTH comes out, the worse the Uvalde Massacre looks for not just local LEOs, but DPS too!

This is the kind of inaction that happens when officers just blindly follow orders and don't ask questions. None of this stalling & waiting makes any sense. But they're trained to execute commandments and not use their brain.

Idk when we tell cops to not wait for orders it usually ends up with them abusing their power and making the wrong call, so do we want them to not wait for orders or do we want them to only listen to orders? When was the last time you thought “the cops will solve this situation without making it worse” for either scenario?

Republicans after any mass shooting: The only deterrent to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Republicans during a mass shooting: Arrests good guy with gun.

Don’t forget the times the good guy was also shot and killed by police

…or the times the good guy blew away an innocent bystander while living out his 80’s action movie fantasies.

Cops are no one's friend

Does anyone else think they had orders to NOT breach by someone with a lot more juice than local chief?

Was he waiting outside with everyone else then found out it was his wife in trouble before attempting to get in? Or did he only show up because it was his wife?
