(RightIsRight.co) – According to University of Pennsylvania Professor Anthea Butler, the police at the scene of the Robb Elementary School massacre last week in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 school children and two teachers dead, didn’t take action to stop the killer for more than an hour because the school kids were “brown.”
In short, Professor Butler has accused the cops of being racists who were all too happy to see children of color die at the hands of a deranged killer.
To be precise, Butler tweeted the following:
“So since no one else will ask, I will. Did those children die because most of them were Mexican American and the police didn’t give a damn about a school w predominately brown kids? I mean, because it’s Texas.. and if you think everyone who isn’t white is illegal.”
Yet, as George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley points out, “Uvalde Police Chief Daniel Rodríguez is Latino as is Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Chief Pedro Arredondo. Many of the officers at the scene were Latino and there were officers with children at the school and among the dead.”
In fact, a review of photos and video taken on the day of the school shooting shows that many, perhaps even a majority, of the police on the scene were themselves “people of color.”
