When you’ve hit bottom, stop digging, chief.
I’m shocked that not only did the Uvalde school police chief’s lawyer not tell him to shut up, but that the lawyer was with him.
Uvalde school police chief Arredondo denies giving stand down order, tells his side of story for first time
The Uvalde school police chief who has faced blistering criticism over his response to the Robb Elementary mass shooting is now saying he never considered himself the incident commander on-scene and that he did not give orders telling responding officers to stand down.
But Arredondo, the chief of police for the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, told the Texas Tribune this week that he never considered himself to be in that role as the shooting was unfolding.
“I didn’t issue any orders,” Arredondo said, noting that he “called for assistance and asked for an extraction tool to open the door” to the classroom that Ramos was inside.
Look, dumbass: It was your jurisdiction, you were the ranking person. If you were not in charge, who did you so delegate?
You didn’t delegate that job? Then you were in charge.
You should have been outside coordinating with your officers and all the other agencies that responded. That radio is all that should have been in your hand.
Maybe if you were doing your job of coordinating, someone might’ve though of shooting the perp through the window before more kids died, you lethally incompetent fuck.
Arredondo, according to the Texas Tribune, wasn’t carrying the radio because he thought it would slow him down and that he wanted both hands free to hold his firearm in case he encountered Ramos.
I guess no one issues radios with belt holsters and remote mikes that clip to the uniform anymore
