Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Praises Police, Says Uvalde Shooting "Could Have Been Worse"
Much has been said about law enforcement’s reported reaction to the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas. This shooting came not long after the massacre of 10 Black people in Buffalo, New York at the hands of a white supremacist. Both incidents add their names to the growing list of America’s mass shooting epidemic, and according to several reports, there were multiple instances this week where police arrested people—children and adults—who planned similar school attacks.
A hot topic about the Uvalde shooting have been reports that responding officers stood outside of the school for approximately 40 minutes before entering. It was reported that officers who had kids inside were allowed to go in to save their children.
