The Weak Men Of Uvalde
In no recent situation has the phrase “weak men create hard times” been more clearly spelled out than in the police response to the Uvalde school shooting.
Most of us knew this was going to be a disaster from the moment we first researched the shooting. The police desperately trying to hide information, the mayor acting suspicious, and the completely contradictory information for the first two weeks were dead giveaways. Something was off.
But what actually happened was perhaps even worse than I imagined, and I’m fairly creative.
With the recent release of the shooting video by the Austin American-Statesman, we can watch the full event unfold.
I rarely link to unarchived media outlets, but you need to watch the full hour clip. Just speed run through it, don’t watch just their edited four minute highlight video. The context is useful in the full understanding of what exactly happened.
Watch it here. It’s tough to watch, but get through it.
The Statesman is publishing two versions of the video, one that we edited to just over four minutes and highlights critical moments: the ease of gunman entering the school, how he shot his way into the classroom, the repeated sound of gunfire, and then the delay by police to stop the killer for 77 minutes as dozens of heavily armed officers stage in the school hallway before a group finally storm the classroom and kill the gunman.
The gunman walks into Robb Elementary School unimpeded, moments after spraying bullets from his semi-automatic rifle outside the building and after desperate calls to 911 from inside and outside the Uvalde school.
He slows down to peek around a corner in the hallway and flips back his hair before proceeding toward classrooms 111 and 112.
Seconds later, a boy with neatly combed hair and glasses exits the bathroom to head back to his class. As he begins to turn the corner, he notices the gunman standing by the classroom door and then firing his first barrage.
The boy turns and runs back into the bathroom.
The gunman enters one of the classrooms. Children scream. The gunfire continues, stops, then starts again. Stops, then starts again. And again. And again.
It is almost three minutes before three officers arrive in the same hallway and rush toward the classrooms, crouching down. Then, a burst of gunfire. One officer grabs the back of his head. They quickly retreat to the end of the hallway, just below a school surveillance camera.
A 77-minute video recording captured from this vantage point, along with body camera footage from one of the responding officers, obtained by the American-Statesman and KVUE, shows in excruciating detail dozens of sworn officers, local, state and federal — heavily armed, clad in body armor, with helmets, some with protective shields — walking back and forth in the hallway, some leaving the camera frame and then reappearing, others training their weapons toward the classroom, talking, making cellphone calls, sending texts and looking at floor plans, but not entering or attempting to enter the classrooms.
The police responded and went into the elementary school within minutes of the gunman arriving. They had quite a few officers with them, all with appropriate gear and weapons to confront the shooter. The police then walked up to the door where the gunman was at, heard gunshots, ran away, and waited at the end of the hallway for over an hour as dozens more police piled into the school.
While all of this was occurring, even more gunshots could be heard from inside the elementary schoolroom.
It doesn’t appear from the video like they even attempted to run a rescue operation to move the children out of the other nearby classrooms.
If you watch the video, you’ll notice the police run when they get to the room with the shooter. The cops running from that door got to me. You will have to endure my emotional rhetoric here—But I have never seen such a pathetic, cowardly, and more disdainful thing in my entire life. Those fat police (I’ve had to delete “pigs” from this article at least five times now as I’m editing it) were decked out in combat gear and rifles, but still literally ran away from a child’s schoolroom as gunshots rang out.
There is no justification for such a thing. I can’t even imagine the level of cowardice it takes to run from a schoolroom like that, given those conditions. Nearly every man of honor I know would have ran in there even without a gun. Much less being fully suited up with rifles. Hell, most men I know even with a lack of character still would have ran in there or at least done something.
Instead, they ran away and hide at the end of the hallway for an hour.
They knew children were being slaughtered but ran away. Then, as even more cops arrived and more gunshots continued to ring out from the room, the police still just hung around, used hand sanitizer, and looked at their phones.
It’s hard to even fathom the failures here. I would rather die than run when innocent children are being shot. The lifelong self-torment would be too much to bear. But our men are weak now: They are selfish, inward focused, and averse to real danger. They are more afraid of evil than they are proud in fighting against it. Our men are afraid of everything now.
As I said at the beginning of this article, this is perhaps the best example we have of the “weak men create hard times” philosophy. These police are the epitome of the lack of character, the cowardice, and the excessive degeneration of our people. They are an extreme view of the failure of our national soul and a once strong culture.
We, as a nation, are getting what we deserve for falling so far to weakness and wickedness. But innocent children do not deserve this evil being placed on them. And that is that most disturbing thing about Uvalde.
Men like these police are creating the hard times. Hard times which now include dozens of dead Uvalde children that rest at the altar of our weakness.
I have said my thoughts on police before but I will repeat it here: when you need them in seconds; they are actually seconds away, but won’t come in for an hour.
