Texas Department of Public Safety admits “it was wrong” not to immediately breach the class door

While taking questions from reporters during Friday’s news conference, Col. Steven McCraw of the Texas Department of Public Safety criticized some aspects of the police response to the shooting, in particular regarding the time it took for officers to engage with the gunman.
“A decision was made that this was a barricaded subject situation,” McCraw said of the incident commander’s “thought process” at the time.


Can we admit, this week has been awful.. the mood of America is divided.. depressed… morbid.. and angry. We are mixed with rage and rot.. The apple has been browning for years.. it has made it to the core.. We have no other words to offer.. Just that it’s all sickening, and awful. Just awful..
