Uvalde law enforcement officials have come under intense scrutiny as a result of their response to the mass shooting that occurred at Robb Elementary School.
The shooting, which claimed the lives of nineteen children and two teachers, is one of the worst mass-casualty shootings in United States history.
Last month, it was reported that Uvalde law enforcement officials stopped cooperating with the Texas Department Of Public Safety after a high-ranking official publicly criticized their response to the shooting.
Then, this morning it was reported that Uvalde police may have stood at the door of the classroom where 18-year-old Salvador Ramos was going on a violent rampage for over an hour. New details released by The Gateway Pundit indicate that the door may have been unlocked.
Now, Uvalde law enforcement officials have hired a private law firm to represent them to prevent the release of further ’embarrassing’ information.

The Gateway Pundit Reports–
The city of Uvalde and the police department reportedly hired a private law firm in Texas to block the release of any public records related to the deadly mass shooting because some of them contain “highly embarrassing information.”
The Uvalde police department has been under scrutiny for failing to respond quickly and accurately to tragic events that left 21 dead.
A law enforcement source told the San Antonio Express-News that surveillance footage from Robb Elementary School shows that police made no effort to open the door. The report further states there is reason to believe it may have been unlocked.
This is one of the reasons why Uvalde city officials are trying to prevent the release of public records including body camera footage, photos, 911 calls, emails, text messages, criminal records, and more, Vice reported.
