Uvalde Shootings – Kayleigh McEnany: ‘This is a damning timeline’


The cop husband of teacher Eva Mireles who was murdered in the Uvalde school shooting tried to rush in and save her after she called to tell him she had been shot but was stopped by colleagues who took away his gun.

Eva Mireles, a fourth grade teacher, was identified by her family as being one of the staff members shot dead. She had worked in education for 17 years.

Her husband Ruben Ruiz, a veteran detective and SWAT team member currently serving as a police officer with the school district, held regular active shooter drills for the schools – most recently at the end of March.

McCraw went on city a transcript of a phone call that day between Arredondo and a police dispatcher, where the chief air concern that his men were outgunned – with Ramos armed with a rifle and his officers armed only with handguns.

McCraw slammed the commander for his hesitation, arguing that putting one’s life in a risky situation is part of being a police officer. He said if there is even ‘one officer’ on the scene, that officer has an obligation to ‘immediately engage the shooter.’

‘He was right – officers are likely to get hurt, and some may die,’ McCraw said during the session, held by the Senate Special Committee to Protect All Texans. ‘But it’s less likely that they would than children without the armor, without the weapons, without the training, left alone with someone who… ultimately killed 21 people.’

In an ‘active shooter environment,’ McCraw asserted, ‘that’s intolerable.’

    INCOMPREHENSIBLE! What else can one think except that the men were cowardly and without honor. It’s almost as though they had no ability to reason. The dead need to be avenged.

    The living need not only to be avenged but prayers forever for healing of horrible memories. They are in the fullest sense abused children and adults.

    We have not yet heard what background the “School Police Chief” had that led him to this “leadership” role. To me, this shows the folly of a small school having their own police force. It’s one thing if you are Chicago Public Schools with hundreds of schools and thousands of kids and hundreds of officers. This guy was in way over his head. I hope we see our state legislature take a look at why this was allowed. It’s all very sad and horrible, but likely could have been minimized with a true professional in place, either at the school or the town.
