Since the massacre that rocked this peaceful small town in Texas, there has been a growing amount of confusion and outrage over the delay in the action of the police. On Tuesday, it took the police around an hour to put an end to the carnage that was taking place.
Although law enforcement had received multiple reports from persons who were in the impacted classes, the 19 cops who were stationed at the scene waited for an attack to be carried out by a specialized squad. They were called by a youngster who pleaded with them to call the authorities as soon as possible.
On Friday, in response to the backlash caused by the scandal, the authorities issued an apology, conceding that the police officers should have entered the school far sooner. Over the week, corrections were also made to the description of how the police involvement unfolded.
On Friday, the Republican governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, expressed his annoyance at having been misled by false first information. Abbott had earlier expressed his support for the action taken by law enforcement.
