Uvalde teacher who lost 11 kids in his classroom says ‘there is no excuse’ for officers’ delay in taking down gunman – CNN

Arnulfo Reyes can’t forgive law enforcement for taking more than an hour to stop a gunman who killed 11 fourth-graders in his Texas elementary school classroom and 10 other people in the next room, he told ABC.

Reyes, a teacher who was shot twice during the May 24 massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, recalled the horror that unfolded in his room and an adjoining one and spoke, too, in interviews that aired Monday and Tuesday about his mounting anger toward law enforcement responders.
“After everything, I get more angry because … I had nothing” for protection, such as a bulletproof vest, Reyes told ABC’s Amy Robach in a segment broadcast Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”
“You’re supposed to protect and serve. … There is no excuse for their actions. And I will never forgive them,” the fourth-grade reading and English/language arts teacher said in some of his first public comments since the slaughter.

  1. They were afraid for their lives as well. Maybe they should review their choice of work, maybe being an officer of the law is not their vocation, if they are afraid and don’t feel urged to protect children.
