No? You have cops holding back, threatening parents asking them to go grab their children.. They end up grabbing their own.

And you don't blame them.

O.o

This isn't going to be good.

Police aren't supposed to be self-serving. It's supposed to be a job of sacrifice -- somewhat inclusive of your family, given that, if something happens to you in the line of duty, surely your family will suffer as well. It's the inherent risk and it's why the job should be valued if done correctly. This would not be considered "done correctly."

If it truly was "I'm getting my kids first," this is going to go downhill fast for a lot of folks.

hoodiowithtudio: I mean...I don't blame them.


I do (maybe). If they are going to go in there, they could have sent their kids out and closed on the shooter. The only uncertainty is if they thought this was more of a standoff situation. It is possible that they were not aggressive because they didn't know the kids were already dead and they thought they might be able to get the shooter out peacefully.

And I recognizing this should be a statement of the obvious, but in 2022, I feel like the obvious needs to be stated sometimes because I think the obvious isn't always so obvious to a lot of folks.

They prevented other parents from doing the same.

Hell, they probably made it a point to NOT evacuate their children's classmates.

Except she didn't actually say that.

"So what we do know, Vanessa, right now, that there was some police officers, families trying to get their children out of school because it was a active shooter situation right now."

The whole statement is so disjointed and rambling that it's impossible to infer anything from it.  Nowhere does she state that police went into the school to try and get their own kids out.

LEO should have entered the school to get their own kids out AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER KIDS!

If they didn't have the basic human decency to do that, then they should have stepped aside and let parents into that building instead of assaulting parents and taking parents down to the asphalt as shown in another video posted to FARK earlier today. Most of the parents who lost children would have preferred to be shot themselves than to have no chance at all to save their children.

hoodiowithtudio: I mean...I don't blame them.


You should.  Yeah, parents are parents, but these are folks swho are supposed to protect the whole community.  Their kids should have been last in line to get out, providing them the incentive to protect everyone.

Of course this was in a deep red county in Texas, so in some way's they are the authors of their own misfortunes.

I wonder if their wives will complain about it.

Their job description was of course more than that. And they also actively prevented other parents to do the same as them.

FFS. Between Abbott trying and failing to exploit the event, to the cops trying and failing to cover up their cowardice & ineptitude, I have no idea why there's a chance in hell of Abbott winning re-election.

"So what we do know, Vanessa, right now, that there was some police officers, families trying ..." - TFA

I'm not defending anything here and I think the cops should have done a better job all around.

But what we have is video of the police actively keeping the families from 'trying' to enter the building... because they threatened tasers and tackled one guy. We have video of cops standing around doing nothing as well.

When someone tries to make this stick, this detail... the word "trying" in his statement will be used to note that he didn't actually say they did go in and do that. (And if they did, they'll scramble to make sure they get all of the video edited out before that goes public, in a six month battle delaying it.)

Please, copsuckers and people who spread FUD about Defund the Police (sorry for repeating myself there, it's the same picture), defend this. Please, tell us why you love these pigs so farking much. What the fark is wrong with you that you want THIS for our country?
