In school I learned early on the policeman is our friend. All our schoolbooks told us so.
He is always there to help you.
He keeps us safe.
He keeps children safe.
He keeps children safe in school.
How Do You Keep Safe?
But today schoolchildren are learning a vastly different lesson. It’s safe to say the policeman doesn’t always keep us safe.
Ask the people of Uvalde
The more we learn about the tragic school shooting at Robb Elementary School the worse it gets.
In fact, it is painful.
It is anguishing
What Would Be The Safe Thing to Do?
A new timeline raises questions about the police response. The police were on the other side of the door while children were bleeding out.
Children called for help.
The policemen waited.
Children are dead because it was a botched response.
The policemen that day were not helpful.
The policemen that day did not keep them safe.
The policemen that day were not heroes. They were cowards. They placed their own lives ahead of the lives of children.
That is not right. That is wrong.
That day in Uvalde, the policeman did not do a good job. He did not help when things went wrong.
In fact, he was an abject failure.
