Video obtained by the Daily Mail shows 17 heavily-armed Uvalde cops, wearing body armor, first retreating from the sound of gunfire, then slinking in the hallway, apparently waiting for the punk Ramos to run out of ammunition or die of old age.
Uvalde cops RESTRAINED colleague, whose daughter was one of 22 dead, from taking down school shooter, before 17 of them ran away from gunfire.
Footage of the Uvalde police response to the shooting was leaked on Tuesday.
It shows how Salvador Ramos, 18, sauntered through the halls at Robb Elementary School carrying an AR-15 as a teacher called for help.
He then walked into two classrooms and fired for two and a half minutes, shooting off 100 rounds.
The new video shows Sheriff’s Deputy Felix Rubio in the hallway, in tears being held back by fellow officers, feet away from where his 10-year-old daughter Lexi was shot dead.
The first officers arrived three minutes later, but stood back, with one seen checking his cellphone.
Nothing happens until Border Patrol agents ran to the classrooms and began firing at Ramos, killing him.
Two teachers and 19 children were killed in the May 24 massacre.
Cowardly Uvalde policemen restrained a cop whose daughter was one of the 21 slaughtered in the horrific school massacre, leaked surveillance footage from inside the building shows.
Two officers held sheriff’s deputy Felix Rubio back by his shirt as he wiped away tears while gunman Salvador Ramos went on his brutal rampage in a classroom down the hallway.
The devastated father could be seen with his hand clasped over his mouth as he feared for the life of his 10-year-old girl Lexi, who was later found dead.
One brazen officer was shown walking in front of him and pumping sanitizer from a wall mount on to his hands despite the carnage around him.
The footage, which was leaked to a local news outlet on Tuesday and mutes the sound of children screaming, shows Ramos’ approach to the school, him firing on two civilians and then quickly entering the school.
A little boy appears on screen as he starts to edge around the corner but turns around and runs away when he spots the gunman.
A later segment sees armed police storm into the building and start to move down the hallway before 17 cowardly flee back the way they came and away from the 18-year-old shooter.
In total, the leaked footage shows cops stalled in the hallway for 77 minutes, checking their phones and running away from gunfire as Ramos fired more than 100 rounds at children in two classrooms.
It is the latest shame to be brought on the local officers, who were lauded as heroes immediately after the attack on May 24, before details leaked out about their true actions.
I recommend watching the larger version of the video here.
In the older, now vanished America, they use to pick guys to be cops, looking for the kind of man who was tough and not afraid of criminals. It would be a cold day in hell that any of the numerous men in my family who were police would have hesitated one moment to go down that hall and shoot that little nutcase full of holes. And it would have taken more than those seventeen Uvalde cops to stop him from going.
