Dims ban semi-auto pistols

Well, they’ve tried anyhow, the ones in the House, but remains to be seen if the Senate will go along. I always have preferred revolvers because they never jam like pistols do from time to time.

The Uvalde clusterf—

“In total, 376 law enforcement officers — a force larger than the garrison that defended the Alamo — descended upon the school in a chaotic, uncoordinated scene that lasted for more than an hour. The group was devoid of clear leadership, basic communications and sufficient urgency to take down the gunman, the [new Legislative] report says.”

I guess you can’t fire them all, but reprimands should be forthcoming on those who aren’t canned. They’ve given new meaning to the saying that when seconds count, the cops are minutes away. Seventy-three minutes to be exact.

Uvalde shame

“I am generally supportive of law enforcement. But what happened that day in Uvalde, Texas was negligent. I’m not blaming the officers on the scene. It was their lack of leadership — and then the cowardly attempt to cover up their mismanagement of the situation — that needs to be punished…There was no order to breach; a (federal) border patrol agent took it upon himself to break into the classroom and end the tragedy.”

Well, I blame the officers on the scene for being cowards and ass-kissers. Fire ’em all.

The awful Uvalde video

Another, more extensive look at the cops milling around in the hallway while wounded kids in the classrooms bled out. The video, leaked, that the Uvalde cops don’t want you to see. Their shame is boundless. They should all be fired.

UPDATE: “They edited out the sound of children screaming.” One short sentence that breaks your heart.” #Uvalde, via Yolanda Pierce, PhD, on Twitter.

Jewish Highland Park the target

Accused mass shooter Bobby Crimo “also attempted a rehearsal of the July 4 shooting weeks earlier when he tried to enter a Highland Park synagogue during Passover just two blocks from where he ultimately attacked the parade. He was forcibly asked to leave by the temple’s armed security. He is a manifestation of all the left stands for, including wokeness, gender fluidity, and anti-Semitism.”

Glad to hear the synagogue had armed security, but many of them do nowadays.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, in Israel, a Jewish family was massacred at Shabbat dinner.

The Uvalde cops waited

Tony Plohetski, an investigative reporter for the Austin-American Statesman [& KVUE], tweeted a picture showing [Uvalde] police stationed outside the classroom where more than a dozen children were murdered. The officers, armed with rifles and at least one ballistic shield, were in the hallway near the classroom at 11:52 a.m.—58 minutes before [federal Border Patrol cops] breached the locked classroom, and 19 minutes after the gunman entered the school. At 12:03 p.m. a second officer with a ballistic shield arrived, followed by a third a few minutes later.”

Utterly disgraceful behavior. Hardly protectors of the community, just bureaucrats with guns.

UPDATE: The Uvalde schools police chief has been put on administrative leave. Should be fired.

Uvalde chief says didn’t order waiting

Pete Arredondo, the bullet-headed Uvalde school police chief, says he never ordered a stand-down of school, city and Border Patrol cops and doesn’t know who did. The Beto supporter has lawyered up and is out of hiding for the first time since the massacre. He told the leftist Texas Tribune: “I didn’t issue any orders.”

As the highest-ranking officer at the scene, however, he would have been assumed to be in command. And instead of following protocol and moving to confront the shooter immediately, he delayed for more than an hour waiting for special tools to breach the locked classroom door. Couldn’t find a key. Didn’t know kids in the classroom were calling 911 begging for help for wounded classmates because he didn’t have his police radio with him. Didn’t anyone else have one? One wounded child bled out waiting and a teacher died of her wounds as well.

Be interesting to see if he’ll talk to anyone else, including other media not as leftist as the Tribune. But he has a lawyer now and is parsing his words carefully. Disgraceful.

UPDATE: Uvalde shows once again that cops are just armed bureaucrats.
