Federal officers overruled local Texas police to storm the Uvalde school where a gunman was killing children - thirty minutes after being told not to go into the building a report has claimed.

The armed officers from Border Patrol and Homeland Security arriving on the scene of the Texas school shooting were told by the local police chief not to go into the building, according to a report, but after a maddening 30 minutes overruled him and stormed the site.

Federal agents DEFIED Uvalde police chief's order not to enter school


Good on them.

But just to show that no dem bad deed goes punished.


Uvalde Mayor Announces Good News for Embattled Police Chief

The police chief of the school district in Texas where a mass shooting at an elementary school took place on May 24 can assume the City Council seat to which he was previously elected, according to the city's mayor.

Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Chief Pete Arrendondo was elected to the Uvalde City Council about two weeks before the shooting. He received 126 votes, or 69 percent of the total, in the election.

"There is nothing in the City Charter, Election Code, or Texas Constitution that prohibits him from taking the oath of office," Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said in a statement to news outlets on May 30. "To our knowledge, we are currently not aware of any investigation of Mr. Arredondo."


Talk about epic fail.

It is a day that destroyed the reputation of so many police agencies all in one fell swoop.

Thankfully, the border patrol made the right decision. They are accustomed to the daily grind of difficult work and constant threats, so they answered appropriately.

If the local police and their incompetent chief (from all I have read about this attack) had done the same, maybe there would have been fewer lives lost. Don't want to paint everyone with a broad brush, but it is bound to happen, especially with so many standing outside for so long and even preventing desperate parents from performing their basic parental obligation.

Hell the local cops have even called for back-up.....To protect them from the irate parents and the public.
