The Daily Mail Reports

“The video showing how easy it was for teen gunman Salvador Ramos to saunter into Robb Elementary School on the morning of May 24 and slaughter 19 children as well as two teachers has been made public.

Leaked footage shows how cops in Uvalde, Texas, stalled in the hallway for 77 minutes, checked their phones, used hand sanitizer and ran away from the gunfire at the school as Ramos fired more than 100 rounds at children in two classrooms.

Close to the end of the stand off, Uvalde County Sheriff’s Deputy Felix Rubio is shown being restrained by brother officers from engaging Ramos.

Rubio’s daughter, Alexandria Aniyah Rubio, was one of Ramos’ 19 victims. She was 10 years old.

The video was first obtained by The Austin-American Statesman. As many have predicted, it demonstrates how police in Uvalde failed the victims and their families on that day.”
