Cops gonna cop.

So the Texas Department of Safety has taken over covering up the coverup by the Uvalde Police?
 
2022-06-22 5:24:50 PM  
Officer Barbrady was put in charge wasn't he!?

The Uvalde porkers are busy stonewalling *everyone*, to *include* the Texas Department of Public Safety (the DPS can't respond to a records request if they don't have any records relevant to the request, and the Uvalde porkers ain't squealing on anyone involved until they are sure *they* won't be going to jail).

He would be to competent for that bunch of porkers.

It's like they can't understand why the media and the public won't just accept what they say and leave it at that since it's worked like a charm thus far.
 
2022-06-22 5:27:12 PM  
It's Texas, so if the UPD wants people to like them again then they should admit they shot some of the kids. Huge popularity boost.

"According to Texas law, DPS had 10 business days to either respond to Sen. Gutierrez's request or ask the Texas Attoney General for an exception. Sen. Gutierrez said that the DPS has neither responded to his request nor asked the attorney general for a decision. "

- TFA

Or it could just be a case of incompetence.

There is no indication that they even got it, at the moment but if we assume they did, we don't know that the response is simply lost in the mail at the moment, etc...

I'm not making excuses but I'm trying not to jump to conclusions on this just yet because other Texan authorities are trying to work a real investigation.
 
2022-06-22 5:29:47 PM  
Cops lie about and cover up *everything* they are involved with as a rule, from simple traffic tickets to shootings. They love to flex their authority and they work for themselves, not for you.
 
2022-06-22 5:30:09 PM  
They've even started calling themselves the Ulvade Police rather than Uvalde Police?

those farking LARPing cowards deserve to be put into a place much worse than jail, like a woodchipper, or hydraulic press.  jail should be the thing they hope to see if the truth ever comes out fully..
 
2022-06-22 5:35:30 PM  
I may need to go purchase a new fainting couch if the records actually are relinquished and something comes of it that is more than a slap on the wrist for the Uvalde PD.

Thanks to that ratfark Scalia, police have no obligation to either protect or serve. Releasing records likely won't send any of them to jail, they'll just look bad. Or at least they'd look bad to decent people; Republicans would probably be pleased that they let a bunch of brown kids get shot up.
 
2022-06-22 5:35:52 PM  
My official bet is now that they, on body camera, targeted and shot specific kids while calling them out.
 
2022-06-22 5:39:06 PM  
Abolish this police department in particular.
 
2022-06-22 5:39:21 PM  
At this point it would not surprise me in the least if the Uvalde PD's body count that day is higher than the shooter's
 
2022-06-22 5:39:35 PM  
Instead of "Remember the Alamo!" it should be "Remember Uvalde!"
 
2022-06-22 5:40:21 PM  
The only thing that would make this worse is if the chief was found out to be one of those QAnon truther people who thought it was all a Liberal hoax and he wasn't gonna fall for it.
 
2022-06-22 5:43:56 PM  
My best guess is that the Ulvade police engaged the shooter right after he'd shot his grandma, (she called 911 I believe.) and it will come to light that they chased/pushed him towards the elementary school.
 
2022-06-22 5:48:29 PM  
If any of the autopsies show police bullets, my guess is that the cop who was disarmed by other cops is the one who's gonna face charges.

true, but i'm a bit more irked they held parents and spouses back from going in to get their loved ones.  that alone is why they deserve the press.  and none of the nug smasher mini shiat... they need some Gasparini love.

Fortunately, at least according to Texans in the other thread about Uvalde, there is merely a small portion of Texans that are pieces of human feces. The rest are solid people who just can't seem to find a way to run the bad apples out of office in that state.

They can, they just don't want to.  I recently managed to get my disabled nephew out of a piece of shiat unlicensed group home in Dallas where he got dumped after his father died, and to a more enlightened part of the country.  Texas can now get nuked into glass pavement for all I care.  Fark that state and everything they stand for.

It's not jail the pigs are afraid of. If they don't tread carefully, they'll be killed by an angry mob or maybe a definitely-not-good-guy with a gun, and they know it.

The DPS can respond. The proper response would be "here is our request/demand to the Ulvade PD, they have failed to respond and we therefore have no records at this time. We will notify you when the Ulvade PD gets off their arse."

Honestly Barbrady, Barney Fife, or Chief Wiggum would've been too competent and compassionate to have been in the Uvalde PD.

This.

The cops don't curry a whole lot of favor when it turns out they're just a bunch of cowards that willingly chose to let children die in order to preserve their own safety. This whole "we we just following orders" didn't work at Nuremberg, and it's not going to work here.

Couple this with more widespread knowledge of SCOTUS rulings that cops have no duty towards public safety, nor accountability, and the respect/fear people have on both sides is just diminishing. That means you're going to have angry people taking out their frustrations on cops.

I'm just waiting for all this coverup BS with the cops to boil over with some nut job conspiracy theorist claiming the shooting was a hero protecting the kids from a pedophile ring of Texas cops as the excuse for the coverup.

most likely scenario is they stopped him or he stopped to talk to them. They oogled his AR-15, taking aim with it at various things, talked about it's  effectiveness and the cost of ammo.  They then handed it back to him and give him directions to the school, saying "have a good time!" while he drove off.

It takes time to thoroughly ensure that every trace of evidence against the cops has been 'corrected'.  Then to double check that there are no inconsistencies.  To thoroughly intimidate any individuals who might *dare* cross the blue line to blow the whistle.

This is now complicated because they have to ensure that it does match the video/news/social media evidence that they weren't able to suppress before it got out.

Now that they decided to build a new school, I figure between that and the lawsuits against the cops, its gonna mighty expensive to live in Uvalde. That's ruinous amount of tax money to be flowing out.

Take the word "overseer," like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer
Officer, Officer, Officer, Officer!
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity?
Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patroling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you're doing
The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!

agreed. recently was locked out of my office on a school campus. called security to open my office. after 20 mins on a campus with only two buildings, the janitor rolled by and was able to open my office.

called security to cancel the request for an office unlock. Was told they were having difficulty locating my office as it doesn't exist in their system (WTF?)

eventually the security officer (not sure if actual police since we have mixtures) came by and said he was glad someone was able to help me.

I retorted "glad it wasn't an emergency to the fact that this 30ft x 30ft office space actually exists with 4 other offices in it."

he just said "thank you" and walked away.

two two-story classroom buildings and yet my office and the whole office suite doesn't exist in the system.

They seem pretty competent at pushing accountability down the road. Just a couple more weeks and they're gonna be home free.
