It's always an honor to be in this chair, but I come today, 24 hours later with even more questions than I had before. Over what happened at Rob elementary school and you fall the Texas and the shooting, which has left 19 children dead to teachers dead and several others injured, including heroic officers, including the border patrol tactical unit members who went in and got the job done very quickly. I have so many more questions and these questions have actually now been generated by law enforcement themselves down in South Texas, and I want to preface this as we go for that as the morning goes on.
There will be a press conference and involving Texas and we will be carrying some of the sounds from that later this morning. We are to stay on top of that, this is the place to be to hear more on what has been going on, move all the Texas and it's been 24 hours and we've already seen some of the narrative be reeled back in because if you'll remember, we were told that there was armed security in some form, whether it be from the independent school district or from you all. The police that were there on campus and had challenge the 18-year-old shooter. I will not say his name.
He does not get that gift from me.
I will not encourage others to say that name either, but we were told that there was a police officer or an armed security guard or that there was independent school district police on site well then we were told then to listen in to the police and law enforcement, then gave us this big curveball Josh with cut to it was reported that a school district police officer confronted the suspect. It was like a veteran not accurate.
He walked in unobstructed initially so from the grandmother's house to the bar date to the school into the school was not appointed by anybody. The record on that four minutes later, law enforcement coming solve this problem. Want to clear that up. That's very important. It is very important and how did we not know this before. Do you know why we didn't know this before because we had an avalanche of video evidence come in from witnesses that showed the 18-year-old assailant stroll it into the school without getting any resistance whatsoever.
It was the people that showed that that was not the case that he walked straight in and I scribbled down a timeline on my notepad and I've been staring at this have been scratching my head as I look at this and the questions just continue to pop up, one after another. Now if you'll recall, the shooter shot his grandmother in the face and what we've been told as he took her truck and then drove it to the school essentially ditched it. Saw people saw two people at a funeral home across the street from the school. At approximately 1128. On that fateful day fired shots at them.
At this point you have eyewitnesses if you're being shot at, you know you're being shot at.
Perhaps you see the gunmen.
You likely hear the gunfire. Heck, you may even hear the bullets whizzed by. Or strike something nearby. So at 1128 he's firing gunshots at the funeral home eight.
He does not enter the building for another 12 minutes. He's outside.
He's fired shots at the school, so there is a 12 minute lag time before he finally strolls in the video shows that he did he just went in an unlocked door. My first question is if there's gunshots and you got another there's gunshots, you're here. Gunshots from across the street. Why isn't every single door on that school locked. I know it's near the end of the school year. It's a lovely day outside, but as we see in the video. We don't see kids outside. They are actually inside.
Why isn't every door triple check to make sure that it is a closed and be that it is locked.
You have a 12 minute window that is an eternity, you ask any active shooter expert and they will tell you if it is not a negotiation situation. If there is an active shooter that is going into spray bullets.
It's typically over with in a couple of minutes it's done. This got you had a 12 minute head start to batten down the hatches on Rob elementary school. He then goes in, and then he is able to find an unlocked classroom door and he goes into the classroom and were now seeing the horror stories where the shooter has now. It's been said by witnesses that he told the teacher goodbye and then shot and killed one of the teachers also one of the students in the classroom smeared blood on her body so that she could pretend that she was dead and her life because of that quick thinking was actually spared, but between 1128 and 1140. This guy has free run of the place outside of the school building and then walks inside four minutes later we find out that police a mixture of police law enforcement go inside the building is then at that point, you have not only police on the inside but you've got police on the outside as well and let me tell you we've got something to talk about about the police on the outside of the school building as well, folks, in this story. It is already of her. It's already a horrific American nightmare and it only gets worse the more details that come out, but we start with a 12 minute lag time before the shooter even goes inside and coming up. I got more questions and this is gonna lead to maybe the biggest question of all of who is responsible how high up the totem pole and law enforcement. Does this go for all of this happening at the school and I'll tell you why I think there is some responsibility that has to be bared by law enforcement somewhere in Texas how high up that may be up for debate, but there's no debating that this could have been better handled will talk about this were just getting started our phone line is 844-747-8868 Tim and for Todd as we get older we start to notice our parents could use a little help, help with grocery shopping, getting to appointments and keeping up with things around the house for the times when we can't be there care.com makes it easy to find senior caregivers who live nearby and know just how to help.

Our phone number 844-747-8868 Todd Starnes.com web a bit of breaking news. The press conference has been going on in your faulty Texas and we do have a bit of breaking news update. Col. Stephen McCraw briefly noted there was a report out earlier today that the shooter who turned 18 and I killed 19 inside the elementary school. 19 kids and two kids at the NE he said in the press conference. He noted that there was a report out earlier that to middle school kids had been arrested four years prior. For planning a shooting in 2022.
He says that the L the killer in this instance from this week was not one of those two that were arrested back in 2018 were to go live now to the press conference.
This is Col. Stephen McCraw, director of Texas public Department of safety in which the door on the subject of that that was the decision that was his thought process that is taking lighting offices and their officers, whatever needed to be done. Exception is that the commander inside believe they needed more officers of the tactical breach is what work that was requested on the scene as they were there they executed was the dynamic entry when the course is my benefit of hindsight, one sitting.
Now the right decisions along this is no telling you we know, we believe that as soon as you can have the shooter's cage is no longer okay so longer barricades have to worry about that. And by the way, Texas embraces active shooter training certification… Requires office will care what ages you have to have a leader on the sea, every officer lives up stacks up goes and finds were those wells are being fired at and keep shooting until the subject is
