Uvalde Police: A review into their lack of action

The horrific shooting, which occurred in Uvalde Texas, has been discussed on multiple platforms. The shooting occurred when an 18 y.o. coward, Salvador Ramos, proceeded to walk into the Robb Elementary school and began to open fire on both, children and teachers. While this was a horrific event that has devastated many families, this isn’t our focal point. Instead, we are focusing on the police department and how they (didn’t) respond.

It’s standard that officers are trained for deadly situations, this includes mass shootings. In fact, law enforcement agencies run drills for such events. With that in mind, it leads to one question: Why did it take the Uvalde police 77 minutes to stop the shooter? For this, we’re going to have to review the timeline of events. In doing so, we can make a determination of exactly how long it took the Uvalde police to actually respond.

While we can say that this event took place very recently, the shooting was actually planned long before it occurred. In September of 2021, we know that the shooter requested his sister to purchase him a weapon. The reason for this is because, according to Federal law, you must be 18 years of age to buy a rifle. However, you must be 21 years of age to buy a pistol. Thankfully, in this situation, his sister declined his request.

At around March 1-3, 2022, images of weapons would be posted to the shooter’s Instagram account. On one such post, the shooter states the following, “10 more days.” To this, a user, ironically enough, asked about rather or not he had plans of shooting up a school. Around two months later, he would purchase weapons for the shooting.

The shooter’s final day

At roughly 11:00 AM, Ramos sent a Facebook message. This message was directed to a German girl that he had met online. In this message, he states that he planned to shoot his grandmother in the face. He than proceeded to carry out the act, however she called law enforcement. He than proceeds to steal her car and crashes it near Robb Elementary, the final phase of his diabolical plan.

We know that he arrived at the school at 11:28. two minutes later, a teacher made a call to 9-1-1, informing them of the urgent situation. As Ramos proceeded to the building, he had already begun to fire rounds. He entered the building at 11:33, where he would roam around the building with the intent of taking as many lives as he possibly could.

The critical time in this sequence is 11:35. This is the time police arrived on scene. Although they proceeded to the door, previously used by Ramos, it was found to be closed. This meant the police could not enter the building. Presumably through another door, the police proceed to enter. Upon doing so, they are met with gunfire which results in grazing wounds.

Now, to explain what a grazing wound is. In short, it means that the officers were hit, but it barely went into them. Basically, it’s a very minor wound. Regardless of the fact that they outnumbered the shooter, the proceed to evacuate the school, leaving the shooter to take more lives. Within minutes, 16 additional rounds are heard from within the building. At 11:43, in what can only be an amazing display of incompetence, the Uvalde Police take to Facebook, posting that the school is under lockdown due to a shooter. They go onto to say the following, “The students and staff are safe in the building.” Since this time, the post itself was deleted but how could they have posted something so blatantly untrue?

At 11:43, the police again post to Facebook. In this post they claim to have the shooter in custody. If you have been following this case, you already know that this information is untrue, the shooter was actually fatally shot by a lone border patrol agent. While this information may seem minor, it’s important to note one major problem: Ramos was still very much alive and he was still firing his weapons inside the school.

It would be at 12:50 PM, around 77 minutes after the shooting began, that a border patrol agent, who refused to wait for backup, entered the school. This one brave man ultimately did what the Uvalde police were to incompetent to do: he eliminated the threat. How could the police have gotten so much of this wrong? Now, it’s time we review that.

What went wrong?

From reviewing the timeline of events, it is very clear that the Uvalde police were incompetent. But why? As I mentioned, law enforcement agencies typically train for this sort of event. Based on the fact that they were so quick to flee the building and stand around, it’s clear that this department on how to handle this situation. For that, I don’t blame the officers personally. To simply state this, they have no control over the training procedures. The blame in this instance would go toward the local government and the police chief. These individuals are tasked with ensuring that their officers are capable of handling events such as this.

Moving beyond that, we can hold the officers responsible for their abrupt evacuation of the building. Because of this choice, many more lives were needlessly taken. While I can understand the concept of fear, it is also important to recognize that these are men and women who signed up to run into danger, not away from it. While they stood outside, as we’ve seen, they proceeded to provide false information to the public. Stating that the individual was in custody, long before his life would be ended, is appalling! Not only did the combination of these two things make the department look bad, but it has also created a massive backlash on social media, more on that shortly.

Shortly after the threat was eliminated, the police would again state that he was in custody. Now, I don’t think I need to state the obvious, but I will. There is a fundamental difference in being fatally shot and being in custody. How so? One infers that the offender is still alive while the other one is rather obvious. By stating that he was in custody, they provided more false information in that they gave the perception that Ramos was still breathing. Now, let’s go into that social media backlash.

As a result of the horrific mishandling of this situation, the department’s Facebook page has been met with heavy critique. Reviews that slam the department’s incompetence are very common. To quote one such review, “great place to shoot kids. All the cops are cowards. 0/10 would defund.” This, and many other reviews, demonstrate just how the public feels about this department. However, the department had demonstrated exactly why the “anti-police” movement has gone into full throttle. People have every right to be upset at this department, and they absolutely should be. What this department did was unethical, and as a result of the department’s choices, many more lives were taken.

It’s clear that this law enforcement department has some serious integrity problems. It’s also clear that their training is in desperate need of an overhaul. Though they will continue to get backlash, for sometime, we do hope that they take this opportunity to review their policies and procedures. Even with much needed changes, it will not undo the events of that day. To those families, we can only offer our deepest condolences.

OCJDC article Follow-up (Evidence gallery)

On Facebook, our platform received a message from an individual claiming to be associated with the agency, to which we previously wrote about. If you haven’t read that article, we’ll give you a quick recap into the tragic events that unfolded for a mentally disabled individual. Bear in mind, that we have learned additional details since the previous article, they will be included in this one.

To summarize the situation, a detention officer with autism was placed onto the overnight shift. Initially, he felt that it would be more suited for him, he could get better adjusted, and so on. Immediately following this switch, a night supervisor appeared to make him a target. According to the individual, she would berate him in front of the residents (children who are in Juvenile custody,) as well as in front of other officers. Eventually, due to the hostile work environment, created by his supervisor, he began reaching out to individuals who outranked her. Below are the emails, that apparently don’t exist, if we were to listen to an alleged employee of this detention center.

Though redacted from the above image, the unedited version shows that this email was sent to a Major (yes they apparently use military rankings.) We asked about the response email to which we have been informed that one was never given, as far as he knew, it had been ignored. This leads us to email number two.

Upon not receiving any form of feedback, he proceeded to go up the ranking system. The above email was sent to the detention center chief, whom we mentioned in the previous article. Again, there was no response. He presumed that it was ignored for a second time. With that, he went outside of their ranking system.

On 4-26-2022, he proceeded to send this email to the HR manager. The date is important to mention, as it plays a critical role into a potentially illegal termination. Though there was no immediate response, on 5-1-2022, he had gotten a phone call from the detention center chief. The Chief requested a meeting between him, HR, and the employee. Here’s what we now know took place during this meeting.

Initially, they discussed his concerns and problems. However, near the end of this discussion, they took an abrupt change. According to the former employee, they proceeded to gaslight him, asking him if he may had done something that would have warranted the treatment he had received. Now, we as a platform, wish to go on record and say this: “THIS IS NOT OKAY! ABUSE IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE REGARDLESS OF WHY IT HAD TAKEN PLACE!”

From this point, he learned that an officer filed a complaint against him. The reason? He made her uncomfortable. Alright, so we’re going to interject right here. If you know an individual with autism, then you already know how difficult social situations can be. In other words, it’s not surprising that he would make somebody uncomfortable. What is shocking is the fact that she, right after he began sending emails off, felt the need to report him. We can speculate as to why. However, we’ll refrain from doing so.

So, as we stated, this horrible excuse of a meeting had taken place on 5-1-2022. Again, this date is important. By the time this meeting even took place, the former employee informs us that he had placed an application with the county jail. He informs us that this was done due to the lack of response from those to whom he sent emails. In short, he felt as though he had no support.

It’s important that we mention that apparently all county-based agencies utilize the same emailing system. This, as with the dates, is also important to note as you are about to learn.

On 5-5-2022, the former employee received this email via his county inbox; it came from the county jail. Now, if you read the previous article, 5-5-2022 is a very critical date. Within three hours of seeing this email, the detention chief pulled this man from his post, escorted him out of the facility, and terminated his employment as they stood in a parking lot. Yes, you read that correctly. The man couldn’t even give the former employee the respect of terminating him in his office; he had to walk him outside, in public. Furthermore, according to the employee, the weather wasn’t exactly sunny, as it had been raining for most of that day.

While their employees may claim that these emails do not exist, we do have the unedited versions of these. We know the names of who received them, we know the email addresses to which they were sent. This timeline, in our opinion, shows a clear indication that a man was purposefully targeted by his supervisor. When he attempted to report it, he was purposefully ignored until he proceeded with placing job applications. At this point, they did a gaslighting, under the guise of a meeting. They not only justified the abuse he was alleging, but they also went as far as to target a social issue that directly stemmed from his condition. Finally, when another agency contacted him, in retaliation OCJDC terminated him on the spot.

The termination not only makes it look bad for this man, who may now fail at obtaining this potential job, it was also illegal. In the United States, there are retaliation laws. Even if the State is a “Right to work,” or “At will” State, they can only fire you for legal reasons, a classification that retaliation does not fall into. Given the above timeline, the dates that we’ve seen on the emails, and the fact he did lose his job, retaliation does appear to be the reason for the end result. We are assisting him in acquiring an attorney. This form of injustice simply cannot be allowed to stand.

Independent “media” platform spreads false information

It goes to say that journalism has always been a challenging game to play. Providing accurate information, changing mistakes, being threatened, you name it and it happens. When you’re a freelance, or independent journalist, the stakes are even higher. In most cases there are no big companies to have your back. You have to distribute, write, and build your platform from the ground up. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a small team to help you. With all of the challenges that come with this field, one would think that being factual is a top priority. Afterall, it’s your platform’s image and reputation on the line. For the platform we’re about to cover, these things don’t appear to matter.

Freedom Public Press is a rather questionable platform, at best. Though it was founded in February of 2019, it only maintains roughly 508 followers. There is a reason for this. According to their Facebook reviews, they stand at a 1.5 rating, something that is extremely low for a media platform. But how is it that this independent journalist came to fail in this way? The answer to this very question is exactly what we’re here to discuss.

It’s Lead, and only team member, Shara Michelle, has made many calculated mistakes over the years. Though we have all made many mistakes, our platform included, we were able to bounce back. However, unlike her, we have always upheld one critical key: To provide truthful information to be best of our ability and to correct information that we get wrong. Furthermore, we have also been known to take in the suggestions of our followers. Though this information about our own platform seems trivial, it’s actually going to play into one of the things that has lead herself to stagnate in the virtual world.

Opposing views

As a journalist, the ability to accept opposing views is almost a critical trait to have. It doesn’t mean you can’t debate the view; it does mean that you allow the view to be spoken in a public platform. Freedom Public Press, on the other hand, has never understood the concept. Instead, their solution to any opposing view is to simply remove the comment. Not only does this eliminate transparency, but it also brings forth a lack of trust from those who may follow the platform. For any person who wishes to do freelance journalism, especially in written articles, this is a guaranteed way of ending your career. A truth that is openly displayed by their follower count.

Presenting information

The spreading of information is exactly what we do in this trade. Though this is often a passion, it is one that can be destructive for a platform if they’re not careful. Regardless of the subject matter, a good journalist can present information without a personal bias. Though we have opinions on many of the things that we write about, we try to maintain an objective outlook. This means that we need to be able to write without our personal bias or emotions being involved.

For Freedom Public Press, this has never been done. In fact, the platform has a prolonged history of simply fabricating information for its viewers to read. Naturally, this tactic has brought it a lot more harm than good. In one recent post, for instance, the platform is quoted to have said the following:

Does Meko Haze- Always use criminals to do his dirty work so they get the harassment charge? Stay tuned

Freedom Public Press: January 14, 2022

Although we have not found anything that would substantiate a question of this sort, we did find something else of interest. As it turned out, the lead “journalist” Shara Michelle, appears to have a personal vendetta dating back years. More disturbingly, what we found, was that this wasn’t the first time she had openly targeted, or spread outright slanderous information, about journalist, “Meko Haze.” Naturally, her post created a backlash of opposition, which she promptly deleted.

Outside of this, it appears that the entire platform was created solely for one individual case: Jamie Johnson, whom we have previously covered on this platform. Outside of that, it appears that they either share information from other platforms or share links to their YouTube videos, which we have no intention of promoting here due to their already questionable reputation. Outside of these things, we didn’t find much on the platform of notable worth.

Summary

If the intent of Freedom Public Press was to gain followers, it’s abundantly clear that it has failed. With emotional rants, outright slander and false information, and so on, the platform made many mistakes that stunted its growth. When mistakes were made, they didn’t do the responsible thing: retract the information and correct it. Instead, Shara stuck to her guns, as one may say, and effectively brought her own platform down. Deleting criticism is never good, though she has classified much of that as “excessive trolling.” When we viewed the comments that were remaining, yes, we did find trolling. However, we also found people calling her out.

The simple fact is this: when a platform destroys its own image, the trolls are going to come. That’s just a given. It is the job of any administrator to make a determination between who the trolls are, removing them, and who is simply being critical. In this aspect, she failed to do that, marking everybody into the troll category; this doesn’t work in the long term, it is only a temporary solution that will eventually backfire. For her, that is exactly what happened. Once this sort of backfire occurs, it’s virtually game over unless you rebrand yourself and learn from your mistakes. However, because her reputation is equally destroyed, she would have a very difficult time in doing that.

Trucker strike: The Government fiasco

If there is one thing that can be said, it’s this: The trucker strike has, without a doubt, created an uproar. That uproar stems primarily from a government who absolutely refuses to listen. It’s no big secret that the government, both Canadian and American, have exploited the Covid situation for their own monetary gain, that’s obvious to anybody who has been watching. With the passing of mandate after mandate, it has finally boiled down to the working class, or in this instance, the truckers, conducting a protest. What are they protesting, exactly? The government’s mandate to force people into injecting a “vaccine” into their bodies.

The vaccine has been a hot debate since the time of its release. One side claiming that it works, though the government has since contradicted this claim, while the other side stands by the fact that the vaccine’s long-term effects cannot possibly be known. This, to any rational person, would be a legitimate concern. Afterall, the vaccine was developed, tested, and distributed in a very short time. Concerns such as the one listed should be taken into account, but they’re not. Instead, the Canadian and American governments are trying to get people vaccinated, even if it means by force. Naturally, the very backbone of our nations, the truckers, have finally had enough.

The Protest and its fiasco

As thousands of semis continue to block various border crossings, and cities, they stand by their original goal: To stop the forced vaccine mandate. Meanwhile, the Candian, and of course American, governments have taken to conducting a smear campaign against these individuals. Why would they do such a thing, you ask? Good question. One that mainstream media should be asking, but simply aren’t.

The truckers are being labeled as “racist,” among many other things. In essence, they’re saying that if you stand against tyranny, they’re going to mark you as something you’re most likely not. This is the first sign of a weak minded individual. For those who follow the political arena, chances are you already aware of how weak minded that collective truly is. But their campaign of terror doesn’t end with a simple nasty label; it goes into actual threats against individuals who are simply utilizing what should had been their protected right to protest.

The Candian government has made it very clear that if the truckers do not terminate in the performance of their rights, they face various consequences. This includes a $100,000 fine, termination of their livelihood, permanent loss of their commercial license, and up to one year in prison. This is on top of the millions of dollars that the government has already stolen from them via GoFundMe and Give Send Go, both which are American based companies. The tyranny doesn’t seem to end with just targeting the truckers, sadly.

Canadians who post to social media groups, specifically in support of these drivers, are also being targeted. Upon making such posts, many of them are reporting that the police will appear at their door with a brochure. The information on this brochure is about peaceful protest. So supporting a group that is doing that, peacefully protesting, now requires the police to harass any citizen who’s vocal about that support?

Now while some people will say that this isn’t a peaceful protest, I must point out a few things. Aside from blocking a few roads, there has been no violence, no looting, no rioting, no destruction of property, nor burning of buildings. I can’t say the same about some other recent protests. So yes, this is indeed a peaceful protest. One that shouldn’t be treated in the manner to which the government seems to be taking it.

This isn’t about rather or not you agree with the protest. This is about the fundamental right of making your grievance known without fear of retaliation. When the government is able to silence people, simply for expressing their opinions and issues, there’s a problem. This is a problem that doesn’t just exist in Canada. Recently, in America, we’ve been seeing our own government hastily make similar moves toward silencing citizens, specifically the working class. This is an issue that people need to be aware of. People need to understand this one simple fact: Your best interest in contrast to that of the government, are completely different.

Alaska airlines targets Trump supporter

Recently, we have seen some rather disturbing trends. Rather it be the vaccinated vs. the unvaccinated or the mask mandate feud, division is one thing that seems to be going strong. For an Alaska airlines passenger, she was not targeted for what she did, but for the style of mask she wore.

Recently, a young woman boarded an unknown Alaska airlines flight, wearing a ‘Trump’ themed mask. While everything began with no issue, it wouldn’t last. A flight attendant, who appeared to have a problem with the mask, requested that she change it. Though she did nothing wrong, the woman complied. However, the event didn’t end there. The flight attendant returned with another, requested the woman the passenger leave the plane. Why? “The crew were uncomfortable with her being onboard.”

Video uploaded to TikTok showing two attendants removing a woman who had initially boarded wearing a Trump mask.

The passenger, seen in the above video, had initially worn a Trump themed mask. Apparently, this was a problem for the flight attendants. From what we have gathered, she was asked to remove the mask, let’s keep in mind that she was not in violation of their mandate. Instead, she was specifically targeted on the grounds of political affiliation.

In a later video, she announced that she did make contact with Alaska Airlines. Their response was, due to lack of a better phrase, “kick rocks.” Our platform also called the airlines and was given a similar response. This form of behavior shouldn’t be tolerated. The airline has not only destroyed their trust and credibility, they also managed to make themselves look like ‘thugs’ in the process.

Unvaccinated people targeted

Virtually, from the time he took office, Biden’s administration can be seen as incompetent, at best. Destroying various laws, purely because Trump passed them, rambling speeches, and let’s not forget the Afghanistan situation, Biden will undoubtedly go down as the worst president. America couldn’t help but wonder what nonsense would he come up with next? Now we know.

For months, he has pressured the 80 million unvaccinated Americans to get the vaccine. When that failed, he resorted to insults, calling them selfish among other things. However, because that also failed, he is now stepping things up. If you refuse to get vaccinated, you will simply lose everything. In what many platforms are calling, ‘a declaration of war against Americans,’ it appears that Biden is going to make moves that will harm his own people.

In his all so wonderful plan, Biden intends to punish unvaccinated individuals by forcing businesses to require the vaccine. Those who refuse, simply can’t work. If this sounds like fascism, that’s because it is. Across the country, protests are breaking out. People, who are fed up with the political nonsense, are demanding that Biden back off, uphold the constitution as he swore. Although this is effective, it appears to be having no effect. Biden, who simply laughs or ignores the American people, seems to be content with doing whatever he wants, and his approval rating has suffered, as a result.

While he, nor his administration seem to care, the people clearly do. Across the country, people are calling for his resignation over the Afghanistan fiasco, people have protested virtually every action taken by this administration, and people have even gone as far as to question his mental competency, some to the point of trying to invoke the 25th amendment. For Biden, the future is unclear. What is clear is he, without doubt, will not serve a second term. For the American people, the future currently seems even more bleak, results that are courtesy of illegal laws being passed by the Biden administration.
