VIDEO: Texas Lt. Governor reacts to new shooting details, says police response ‘cost lives’

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Fox News:

Reacting to new details emerging on law enforcement’s initial response to the Uvalde school shooting tragedy, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday that state officials “were not told the truth” over the amount of time it took to subdue the shooter.

Patrick also said that the decision not to more quickly move in against the gunman was a “bad decision, and that decision cost lives.”

The article goes on to state the following:

LT. GOV. DAN PATRICK: We were told that there was a security officer and they were a little hazy on how the engagement went, but that a security officer was there. Well, it turned out he was not on campus. He drove on to the campus, but he was not on campus, as we were told and led to believe. No one mentioned the fact that there was this 45 minute-to-an-hour hold by the chief of the police of the school district while there were still shots being fired. Now, we believe that most of those shots were being fired into the door of the wall to hold back law enforcement. But we don’t know.


“And so imagine the parent who has to go through this for the rest of their life and they will be thinking, ‘Was my child still alive and could have been saved?’ So that was another fact that we weren’t told. And so this is heartbreaking. This is horrendous. With these shootings, one of the parts of this job that you don’t ever want is to have to go to a funeral of, particularly a child, but anyone killed in a shooting or one of our police officers killed in the line of duty,” Patrick continued.

“We’ve had a lot of funerals, a lot of memorial services, a lot of hospital visits,” he continued. “So I take this personally, and I know the governor takes it personally. And for me, it’s 140 or 150 people killed in Texas in the last six or seven years of collective anger when we’re not told the truth.”

  1. This story gets sadder and sadder. I pray that our law enforcements are able to train their ppl better in responding during a madman killing ppl and children. We must do better nationwide. This to raise age limits on young ppl buying guns. No AR15’s to any age. If a male cannot rent a car till 26 then same shoukd apply to young men or women buying firearms!

  2. WTH was that Chief of Police waiting for? There were plenty of LEOs there more than willing to rush in and engage. There was nothing to wait for, or to negotiate, as a school shooter’s only agenda is TO KILL CHILDREN and doesn’t expect to emerge alive. And no excuse whatsoever for the School Resource Officer to have ever ever left those children unprotected by leaving the campus. FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL

  3. Columbine should have kept those in the law enforcement community awake forever
    We are living in perilous times
