(RightIsRight.co) – Happening Now: In a revelation that one law enforcement professional called “mind-blowing,” a police officer with a rifle was prepared to shoot and stop the killer — before the massacre even began — but didn’t fire his weapon because he didn’t get the go-ahead from his supervisor.
According to Breaking 911:
“Before the massacre began at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, a law enforcement officer was prepared to take out the gunman but did not take the shot because he did not receive permission from a supervisor, a new report found.
“‘A reasonable officer would conclude in this case, based upon the totality of the circumstances, that use of deadly force was warranted,’ the report from the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center found.”
Additionally, from the Houston Chronicle:
“The request from the Uvalde officer, who was outside the school, about a minute before the gunman entered Robb Elementary had not been previously reported. The officer was reported to have been afraid of possibly shooting children while attempting to take out the gunman, according to the report released Wednesday by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center in San Marcos.”
“The report said one of the first responding officers — a Uvalde school district police officer — drove through the school’s parking lot “at a high rate of speed” and didn’t spot the gunman, who was still in the parking lot. The report said the officer might have seen the suspect if he had driven more slowly or parked his car at the edge of the school property and approached on foot.”
BREAKING: A rifle-armed Uvalde officer sighted in to shoot the Robb Elementary attacker before he entered the school but instead waited for supervisor permission — one of many new revelations in a report obtained today by national experts about the May 24 police response. 1/4
