1. Rescue your own children.

There is no step 2.

And the town's SWAT team was formed in 2018 after a mass casualty event. So they've been "training" for four years to... stand around for one Border Control agent to do something?

The police will not protect you, but they are willing to steal all your stuff.  They are worse than useless.

To hide?

We spend way too farking much on cops and cop shiat. It's just dumping dollars into the incinerator.

Need to ditch the whole thing. Disband the police and replace them with something that actually works.

"An Officer's first and only duty is to come home to his family at the end of his shift."

So Police Departments are pretty much just a welfare program.

Of course there's a Step 2 : stop anyone else from doing the same.

They didn't learn shiat. But this is part of what they were supposed to learn.

Step 2a. Make sure those people aren't armed. You do not want to go up against other people with guns

What did they learn?  Active shooters are dangerous. Avoid them until someone else takes care of the problem so you can go home safely.

F*ck me man, if there is anything I love more than human lives, it's barbecue.  Tough call on that one.  I would have never graduated from the academy.

That there is a big yellow streak a mile wide running up their spines?

1.Grt in your tacticool gear
2. Stop for lunch on the way to the scene
3. Taze and beat citizens that are in the way or that hurt your feelings.
4. Rescue your own kids
5. Wait for the shooting to stop
6. Rope off the area and let the cleanup crew get to work while you say nothing could be done to the press.

7. Blame the teachers and kids for the incident

There's a reason this song is a funny parody song:
Fuck the Fire Department, by Vincent E. L. (with lyrics and funk)
Youtube 7JkrJUAg8aI


And what it was inspired by was not... but had a serious point. It just seems like most cops wanna be heros through unnecessary violence, and firefighters just risk their lives. And I might be out of touch, but it doesn't seem like firefighters that weren't in 9/11 aren't given the same kind of big funerals that cops get.

How quick we forget that the only lives worth saving in Texas are unborn fetuses. Sadly the children and teachers here were obviously born babies. Well beyond the range of the pro life laws.

I truly can't imagine saving people from a fire wearing this metal helmet in middle of everything with a tube someone else is pumping oxygen into.

Or you can shoot from far away and...

You know what, I don't hate cops. I hate the institution that gives toxic people power. I'm a firefighter calender girl all the way. Cops just make me wonder if they have a power complex.
 
2022-05-28 5:49:11 AM  
Well, you can tell who the C students in this class were then...

To be fair, this isn't just on the officers' heads, but the Department that hired cheap, lazy, and vain-glorious idiots as their go-to. They knew proper procedure, they were just too big a cowards to actually go through with it.

I haven't been able to get this out of my head. I want to attend a press conference.

What is rule 1?  Rule 1 is engage the shooter, immediately.
I said what is rule 1?
No, shut up, what is rule 1? No, stop it. What is rule 1?
No, what is rule 1? Rule 1 is engage the shooter, immediately.
Again, what is rule 1? No, i won't stop. What is rule 1?
This isn't hard. What is the first number? 1 Yes. What is rule 1?

Serving as police attracts bullies.
Bullies are cowards.
:. A fair number of police are cowards.

So not only will they not protect Americans from any asshole owning a gun the cops won't even do their jobs.

So, I'm guessing the REAL story is that there were 10,000 Texas Rangers a mile away from the Alamo, but they didn't go in and save the defenders because they were afraid they might get shot by the mean ol' Mexicans.  Everything you've heard since was PR.
 
2022-05-28 6:28:35 AM  
Fire. Them. All. Every God-damned one of them. From the Chief of Police down to the desk jockey that eats all the donuts in the lunch room. Fire them and ban them from ever being in law enforcement again. Even as a farking mall cop.

It sickens me to the core that as bad as this event was, it was made FAR worse because the people who were supposed to put a stop to it were a bunch of sniveling cowards, and let it continue without even pretending to give a shiat.

I'm honestly a little surprised that more fathers didn't end up tazered or arrested for trying to bypass the cops.

Firefighters are a lot nicer to food service workers as well.  Cops will demand discounts, hold up the line by ordering shiat at the window, and litter all over the property instead of using the trash can at the end of the lane.

Mothers. They pepper sprayed and handcuffed mothers.

One mom got them to let her out of the cuffs then snuck around the building and broke in to rescue her kids.

You are right.  I should not have singled this out as only fathers.  That was wrong of me to do that.  Very wrong.
I should have said "PARENTS".

I was really speaking from my own point of view.  I still should have worded that better.

Every cop that showed up and didn't do shiat should be charged with accessory to murder.

The school, town and state is Texas needs to be sued into oblivion.
