New footage inside the Robb Elementary School, the scene of a tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas, showed police officers doing absolutely nothing, while the gunman raged through the school, mowing down innocent children.
The footage was released by KVUE, and the Austin American-Statesman on Tuesday and the videos show a shocking reluctance by law enforcement to act in saving students.
The videos, which is a one hour and 22-minute compilation of security footage, showed the shooter, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos crashing his vehicle outside of the elementary school and running into the building with an AR-15.
During the 9-1-1 call made by a teacher, she can be heard saying, “The kids are running. Oh my God,” and “Get down, get in your rooms, get in your rooms.”
Ramos is then seen firing nearly 100 rounds in two minutes into a classroom.
It took a further two and half minutes for police to make it into the building and the hallway, where they took up positions outside the classroom where the gunfire was coming from.
The officers then leave the children inside the classroom with the shooter, while they cower outside and still make no attempt to enter the classroom after police with ballistic shields arrive.
At this point, around 30 minutes has already passed, and police have still done nothing to help the children and it was nearly an hour and a half after the shooting had begun that the police finally entered the classroom.
Law enforcement failed spectacularly that day and failed those children and the teachers who also lost their lives.
