He could always resign from life if he wanted.

Well Officer Dwyer, we're ready for your closeup

19 officers will have to live the rest of their lives with the echoes of gunshots and screams that went on for over an hour, wondering why they never went in without orders.

One does not need to wait for orders when they hear death and mayhem happening on the other side of an unlocked door.

Unfortunately, decent citizens cannot lure them in a room where there brains can be beaten where it doesn't scare the kids. I would just like five minutes of time with each one, no questions asked. Some serious head-kicking-ins need administering.

You assume that none of the children were killed by police bullets.

Using his service weapon?

I don't think that will be possible as he will need to keep his hands free for the radio that he didn't carry that day.

I have stomper boots and feet itchy for stomping in some chicken-s--- scumbags skulls' in.

I am really a gentle soul. Not a savage. Just give me five minutes a skull. And Greyhound fare and a box lunch.
 
2022-07-03 12:55:18 AM  
So he is off the city council.   Seems like extremely light consequences so far for this incident.

Has anyone even been suspended with pay?

If it hasn't happened by now, it's not going to happen.
 
2022-07-03 1:04:16 AM  
Maybe we need to stop hiring feckless cowards to jobs where we pay them "putting your life on the line" money and give them "Shoot people to death if you get afraid" power?

They are trained that an officer's first and only duty is to come home alive at the end of his shift.

No cops were seriously injured, so why would they fee, any guilt?
 
2022-07-03 1:32:50 AM  
He should hide in a coffin under 6 feet of dirt. Great hiding place.
 
2022-07-03 1:34:01 AM  
I think one of the cop's wife was a teacher and was apparently injured and begging for help while they stood around?

Guy wouldn't break ranks for his wife?  So many layers of wtf to this whole shiatshow
 
2022-07-03 1:37:12 AM  
Guy is really good at avoiding his job.
 
2022-07-03 1:51:11 AM  
It's Texas. He'll get over it.

And they will say "The important thing is that no officers were hurt. Civilians are disposable."
 
2022-07-03 2:02:48 AM  
The latest outrage I read was the police "locked the shooter in the building".  Which means they also locked the children in the building with a rampaging shooter.

Cop, rope, tree.  Some assembly required.

In the abstract, they kind of do, because you can't just go barging through the door without knowing exactly what's on the other side. You have to know, for instance, if a negotiator is talking to the gunman and he's put his gun down or if he has a gun to a hostage's  head, or if the tactical unit is about to burst through another door and take him out and the last thing you want to do is come in and catch a face full of bullets from your own SWAT team. In the abstract.

In THIS case, it's crystal clear that nobody was in charge and had not been and was not going to be, and someone in that hallway should have said "F*ck this, stack up, I'll take the  heat if we catch shiat for it later," but nobody had the balls or spine to do it.

And that should haunt them all the rest of their miserable lives.

The Uvalde police disarmed and detained him when he attempted to do so.

May he never know a moment's peace.
 
2022-07-03 2:21:27 AM  
So he's running and hiding.
He's good at that.
 
2022-07-03 2:22:31 AM  
Well Mr. I forgot my radio, I had a rock in my shoe, the sun was in my eyes, guy, now quit the police force.
When you were tried, you were lacking.
You failed just about as miserably as possible.
So quit and get a job flipping burgers or better yet draining out houses and / or septic tanks.

He will get well-paid by the Republican propaganda factory in a few years.
 
2022-07-03 2:24:41 AM  
No, his status and location will always be public knowledge. I'll see to that as often as I can.
 
2022-07-03 2:25:07 AM  
Each day I hope to read in the news that distraught parents kidnapped him and branded COWARD on his forehead, then released him naked in the town square.

Many people have been demanding that all the cops get fired and rehired in another town, which would really inconvenience them quite a lot. Moving is a quite a hassle.

That fat fark hasn't lost his appetite. This does not bother him at all.

Have they tried promoting everyone?  Sometimes when people screw up really bad and you need them to go away they promote them and that solves everything.
 
2022-07-03 2:58:31 AM  
Strange - he's a Good Guy with a Gun, so why wouldn't he just gun down the entire city council?

Not worried then, not worried now. Law says no duty to protect. Made it home safe, and that's all that matters

That is so f*cked up.  Sure you might be too scared to go in yourself, but stopping others who are willing is beyond shameful, right at incomprehensible.

Because cowards don't like it when actions by others amplify how cowardly they are.

What about the mom that went in to get her kids and two classrooms of other kids?  What about her?  How long does she have to hide from the police?  How long do her children need to live in exile because the cops are stalking her and staking out her home?

What about her?
 
2022-07-03 5:35:42 AM  
I hope he hides with a bottle of whiskey, a handgun and a note.

I think the thing is that most US cops are not actually trained - training takes time and it creates reflexive actions, but most cops in the US get less training than a hair dresser.  In many comparable countries to become a cop is like a 3 year degree.  Shiat, even the military in the US put more effort into ensuring that their C average recruits know how to act in a limited situation.  This police department an a anti-shooter exercise in this exact school, less than two months before the slaughter that they let happen.

Cops are cowards.
They also have no obligation to protect anyone.
Cops make every situation worse.
Fascist, racist slackers.

Yeah, still can't wrap my head around it, and can't really comment on it without sounding

They would need shame and a conscience to feel remorse. We're talking about cops.
