Different takes on the Ukalde shooting:
  • after crashing his car, Ramos got out and started shooting at people outside a funeral home across the street before scaling fence to get onto school grounds where more shots were fired:
    "Texas law enforcement officials ignored pleas from distraught parents as a gunman was left alone for up to an hour at a Texas elementary school - killing 19 children and two teachers, before a Border Patrol agent charged into the school and killed the suspect."
  • The back door used for entry was unlocked and either same door or another had been propped open.
  • The classroom door was purposely locked rather than "barricaded" so as to prevent him from going room to room to kill more students - but an hour delay resulted in shot kids bleeding out and dying.
    "Texas police stated Thursday night that they did not immediately pursue the shooter within the school because they feared that they themselves would be shot. However, they also suggested that intentionally locked the shooter in the room where he killed 19 children and 2 teachers in order to trap him."
  • Police were intent on holding back parents (handcuffed/arrested/pepper sprayed/tasered) who were getting more and more incensed that the officers were doing nothing! Comparisons to Parkland shooting with Broward Cowards failing to do their jobs!
    "One mother told the Wall Street Journal that she was briefly handcuffed and accused of impeding a police investigation, after demanding - along with other parents - that officers enter the school. Angeli Rose Gomez said she saw one father thrown to the ground by an officer, another pepper-sprayed and a third who was tasered."
  • Heroic off-duty Customs and Border Protection agent rushed to school with borrowed shotgun after teacher wife text:
  • majority of comments are seeing through this latest attack particularly in regards to gun control; that delayed response indicates it was a planned operation (FBI); trans photos debunked as not Ramos; an operative groomed/triggered both Ramos and Buffalo shooter - I saw a another comment that mentioned this connection of both shooters to Sandman.

"Mr Escalon said Ramos crashed his vehicle nearby at 11:28, with the first emergency call coming two minutes later as witnesses reported a man carrying a gun. Ramos then shot at members of the public, roamed the school premises, and entered freely through an unlocked door at 11:40.
Police arrived on site four minutes later, Mr Escalon said. But it is unclear how close they got to the gunman or whether they attempted to enter the classroom where the shooting took place."

The apparent delay in entering the building deviates from guidance that became standard police practice after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, which states that the first officers on the scene should do whatever they can to stop an attack without waiting for backup.
Curtis Lavarello, a former SWAT officer who now works on school safety training, said the response seemed far from the mark of what would be expected. "I can't think of any scenario that would warrant that long of a delay," he told the BBC. "You've got to go in and stop that threat quickly."
Robb Elementary School had several major vulnerabilities, he added, such as a lack of security cameras and doors that had been left unlocked.

Robb Elementary School had several major vulnerabilities, he added, such as a lack of security cameras and doors that had been left unlocked.
Which only adds to the doubts about how it all played out especially considering:

Uvalde had prepared for school shootings. It did not stop the rampage

In August 2020, law enforcement officers from five agencies converged inside the hallways of a school in Uvalde, Texas, their guns drawn, role-playing how they would halt a gunman.

The training, detailed in documents reviewed by The New York Times, was part of an overhaul of security preparedness in Uvalde — and across much of Texas. Uvalde school officials were doubling their budget for security, updating protocols and adding officers to the district’s Police Department. And the city’s separate police force dispatched its SWAT team, in tactical gear, to learn the layout of school buildings.

But none of the extensive preparations halted the rampage of an 18-year-old gunman who entered a Uvalde elementary school this week and killed 19 children and two teachers. Family members who had rushed to the scene said they pleaded with officers, who were assembling outside the school, to enter the building.

The carnage has renewed a decades-old debate about how to end the horror of U.S. school shootings, with many Texas political leaders once again calling for heightened school security measures. But others, pointing to devastation even on campuses that have invested heavily in security, said that such a singular focus could not stop a committed killer with access to weapons — and that such efforts might actually provide a false sense of safety in the absence of gun control regulations and more robust investments in mental health.

Uvalde Schools Locked Down at Least 48 Times This Academic Year

The Uvalde public school district is no stranger to campus lockdowns. In October 2021, Mayor Don McLaughlin reported the district had been forced into lockdowns 48 times during the first few months of the school year, largely due to human smuggler pursuits near campuses.

And I believe I saw that the school had had a "drill" not so long ago as well. Just a lot of coincidence.

"Instead of waiting for the police to arrive, a woman with a concealed carry license in West Virginia acted fast to stop a crazed man with an AR-15-style rifle who was about to kill dozens of people at a graduation party. "

"Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night," Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett told local news WCHSTV.

"Unbeknownst to the shooter, a law-abiding citizen with a CCW was within the group and quickly drew her weapon and engaged Bulter with direct fire, fatally wounding him."

"So a good woman with a gun prevents a bad person with evil intentions and an extensive criminal record from committing a mass shooting. Should society consider her a hero for saving the lives of dozens of people?"

I found this article on Twitter:
Texas school officials had been monitoring students' social media prior to the deadly shooting in Uvalde Tuesday, it has been revealed - but still failed to pick up on concerning posts from the teenage gunman in the days leading up to the tragedy.

As an 18th birthday present to himself earlier this month, now-deceased suspect Salvador Ramos bought two AR-style rifles and paraded them on social media - including in ominous messages sent hours before the killing started.

The teen's photo-op also saw him share an image to his since-scrubbed Instagram account, of him cradling the magazine of a rifle on his lap.

The ensuing massacre - the deadliest at a US elementary school since the infamous 2012 Sandy Hook shooting - left 19 students aged under 11 and two adults at Uvalde Elementary dead. Ramos also reportedly shot his 66-year-old grandmother before embarking on the killing spree.

Now, Uvalde School officials say they had been monitoring its students' social media pages using an advanced AI-based service called Social Sentinel, designed to recognize signals of potential harm found in digital conversations.

The district revealed Monday it had been using the platform 'to monitor all social media with a connection to Uvalde as a measure to identify any possible threats that might be made against students and or staff within the school district.'

According to its creators, the service - powered by advanced linguistics technology - scans and analyzes digital content to pick out and flag potential safety and security risks, as well as mental health and social and emotional concerns.

The software scans selected digital content - in this case, thousands of students' social media accounts - and identifies language that fit those criteria.

What is Social Sentinel? The media tracking service that failed to spot Texas shooter's gun posts on Instagram​


Social Sentinel is a linguistics technology service used by the Uvalde School District that tracks users' social media activity, flagging it if it finds the content to be concerning.
The company primarily analyzes profiles of students, and seek 'to improve school violence prevention and awareness' with the tech, which is used by districts across the country.

The powerful tech is designed to then alerts leaders if a community member is showing signs of crisis, so they can intervene before an incident occurs.
The service scans threatening images, along with its associated text, before determining whether it is something community leaders should look into.
It is not immediately clear why the technology failed to flag gunman Salvador Ramos' posts, which contained photos of guns and ammo used in Tuesday's attack - the worst school shooting in a decade.



The powerful technology is designed to then alerts leaders if a community member is showing signs of crisis, so they can intervene before an incident occurs.

The service also scans threatening images, along with its associated text, before determining whether it is something community leaders should look into.

However, in this particular instance, the technology fell short - failing to spot Ramos' objectively concerning posts and notify district officials.

It is not immediately clear why the technology failed to flag Ramos' posts. DailyMail.com reached out to Social Sentinel and Uvalde district staffers for comment on the software's apparent failure Wednesday morning, but did not immediately hear back.

Students and parents also failed to spot the post from the troubled student, who was described as a bullied loner who slowly dropped out of school due to teasing about his lisp, habit of wearing eyeliner, clothes and his family's poverty

Uvalde district policy encourages 'students, parents, staff, and community members are encouraged to share information that is deemed troubling' with the district using a reporting system' so that it can 'take appropriate action.'

Those who knew Ramos or his relatives say he was a 'nice' but 'quiet' boy who grew increasingly violent as he became older, amid relentless bullying both in school and online.

Santos Valdez told the Washington Post that he used to be friends with Ramos and played online shooter games such as Fortnite and Call of Duty with him, until the pair stopped talking as Ramos's behaviour 'deteriorated.'

Valdez said Ramos had showed up to the park one time with cuts all over his face, initially claiming he was scratched by a cat before admitting that he did it to himself with a knife.

Stephen Garcia, who considered himself Ramos’s best friend in eighth grade, said he was 'bullied by a lot of people' including for over a photo of himself wearing eyeliner which led to 'gay' taunts. Garcia said Ramos dropped out of school when he moved away to another part of the state, and the two had lost touch.

This tweet from Florida Sheriff:


In reading the article this tweet came from, it doesn't address the fact that the school in Texas was heavily armed and monitored...so what happen? Then later on in the article it states that other states also are beefing up their school's police presents.

"Polk County is not alone. Schools in Connecticut, Michigan, and New York have increased police presence since the tragedy in Uvalde."

IMO adding more police, so that the children are literally in a prison is not addressing the real problem. Catchy Fraze though: "Graveyard Dead"

Chaos and panic erupted after Saturday night's boxing match at Barclays Center in New York City.

A shooting scare sent hundreds of fans scattering like ants inside the stadium after a "loud disturbance" was heard outside the arena, an NYPD spokesman told AP News. At the same time, a fight broke out, and that's the moment people began running, NYPost said.

Videos on social media show people running back into the arena.


Tennis star Naomi Osaka was at the event and tweeted about the incident:

"I heard shouting and saw people running, then we were being yelled at that there was an active shooter and we had to huddle in a room and close the doors, I was so ... petrified man," Osaka said, adding: "I really hope everyone made it out safely, since I'm tweeting this we made it out ok."

Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix tweeted: "Sound of gunshots inside Barclays Center. "

Though an NYPD spokesperson confirmed those reports were incorrect.

Tensions are high across America in the wake of the elementary school mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, last week.

A man who blamed his surgeon for ongoing pain after a recent back surgery bought an AR-style rifle hours before carrying out a shooting at a Tulsa, Oklahoma, medical office, killing the surgeon and three other people before fatally shooting himself, police said Thursday. Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said the gunman had recently undergone back surgery and had called a clinic repeatedly complaining of pain.

Franklin said the doctor who performed the surgery, Dr. Preston Phillips, was killed Wednesday, along with another doctor, a receptionist and a patient.

"We have also found a letter on the suspect which made it clear that he came in with the intent to kill Dr. Phillips and anyone who got in his way," Franklin said. "He blamed Dr. Phillips for the ongoing pain following the surgery."

Dr. Cliff Robertson, president and CEO of Saint Francis Health System, called Phillips "the consummate gentleman" and "a man that we should all strive to emulate." He said the three employees who were killed were "the three best people in the entire world" and that they "didn't deserve to die this way."

Authorities said the gunman, identified as Michael Louis, carried a rifle and handgun during the shooting on the hospital campus, the latest in a series of deadly mass shootings across the country in recent weeks.

Wednesday's shooting happened the same week that families in Uvalde, Texas, began burying the dead from the deadliest school shooting in nearly a decade. In Taft, Oklahoma, a woman was killed in a mass shooting during a Memorial Day weekend celebration that also left seven people injured, police said.

The victims and gunman in Tulsa were found on the second floor of a medical office where an orthopedic clinic is located, police said. The shooter died from what police believed was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Franklin said.

The spate of recent gun violence across the country, including the killing of 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde by an 18-year-old gunman carrying an AR-style semi-automatic rifle, has led to Democratic leaders amplifying their calls for greater restrictions on guns, while Republicans are emphasizing more security at schools. Bipartisan discussions are also being conducted.

From two days ago I was reading about the Greenbaum Speech and came across this news item from May 31. Could this be related? The effects of the wave creating short circuits in some robots.


Spanish - USA: Boy confesses to teacher that "when he grows up he wants to be a killer
A video has caused terror not only in the United States but around the world, after it was released the material in which a 7-year-old boy confessed to his teacher that "when he grows up he wants to be a murderer".

With innocence, but with total certainty and conviction of his desire, the little boy tells his teacher that his brain tells him that he wants to kill, and that the first time he saw a murderer act "he saw himself".

"A boy about 7 years old says he wants to be a murderer when he grows up and kill everyone. Is the problem guns or society, education, empty homes? The world is sick and making the little ones in our homes sick."

The day of the Uvalde shooting, a US Army MC-12W recon plane left FortHood/Killeen at 10:15am CT. It approached the Uvalde area ~ 11:02 and flew over KUVA; entered a pattern at 11:16, & landed at 11:25. At 12:48pm, the plane took off and returned to Ft Hood.

The MC-12W is designed to intensify data collection operations through intelligence-collection capabilities in-theatre, allowing real-time full-motion video and signals intelligence for battlefield decisions of military troop leaders.

Reports are that Ramos entered the school at 11:28am and was taken out at 12:50pm. Why would a military recon plane like this, that had never been to Uvalde, land and leave there within a few minutes of those same times? Did it drop someone off and/or pick someone up? Did they need to monitor or jam cell phone activity in the area, to ensure the narrative doesn't collapse under a kid with some video footage that shows a different set of facts?
