A female cop who safely took cover outside while children were being slaughtered for over an hour in the Uvalde incident was seen on body cam video saying that, if her kid was in there, she would have gone into the school to save him. I guess other people’s kids weren’t important enough to her. She was fired, and rightly so.
Less than three months later, the department quietly rehired her. It wasn’t until the parents of dead kids discovered it that she was re-fired. To the parents of Uvalde, the lesson should be clear: their local politicians and cops don’t give a flying rats ass about them or their children. If some parents in that town don’t start demanding that every, single. cop. in that town be fired, then they and their kids deserve whatever happens to them. The contempt that is evident in the stealth rehiring of this cowardly bitch speaks volumes on how they feel about the children of their town.
What surprises me even more is that some distraught parent of a dead child hasn’t decided on some vengeance. The first kid who was killed is on the shooter. Most of the ones that were killed later? Those all lie at the feet of the cops, and I am surprised at the restraint shown by the parents.
Is it restraint, or herd mentality?

We have the RCMP here..i’ve noticed a pretty major change in the ones I know who are all now retired vs the current crop of ones still in.. 20 to 30 years ago the local RCMP got involved in small town life, they curled in the local league, they attended church, they volunteered to coach kids sports etc. Their kids tended to 99% of the time to be good kids as they knew they were less likely to get let off with a warning by their dads.
Now the rcmp are actively hostile to the local community, they have no interaction outside of living here and working here, no interest in the community. Their wives and families dont interact with the community either. The rcmp kids actively tell other kids they are not allowed to play with inmates. What grade 2 kid talks like that? Across all age groups their kids refuse to do group work at school with non rcmp kids. That tells me they are being fed an us vs them mind set at home.
So I’m not surprised by the cops seeing nothing wrong with her statement. They dont see non-cops as people.

Totally agree. Grew up in a small town where the RCMP became very involved in local affairs (one even married a local girl) and were part of the community. Brother-in-law tells some good stories as well about those days, and I rather think there are a fair few good anecdotes about how both sides figured out how to co-exist and co-operated.
But even in those days one had to “train” the newbies. Back in the day, Dad and neighbour had convinced the city council that “wrong way” parking should be allowed on our street as we were on a serious hillside with a somewhat interesting downhill layering to the road and facing “outward” made sense as our street at the other end was very steep (it later became a dead-end) and was only traversable downhill during the winter (actually, it was also the local de-facto sleighing run, though we were very good about clearing out when a car came down). City council saw sense and the by-law was enacted. Fast forward about 30 years and a keen young newbie decided had to “correct’ remiss parking habits before the snow flew. So Mum and a friend were ticketed. Mum took both tickets up to the local cop shop and started to receive the standard lecture from the newbie about safe parking, etc., etc. Mum stopped him in mid-flow and told him to check the by-laws about that particular street. Newbie came back rather apologetic and cancelled both tickets.

This is the caliber of many of the frontline cops around America now. There was a video about of a female cop failing to shoot a perp who had just shot her partner and she allowed him to close right up on the downed officer for follow-up shots. She pretended to be busy talking into her radio, but she clearly had no interest in the firefight. It does not even appear to be a problem with a few cops here and there, but rather, whole departments in many cases. Your example of Uvalde is one, The Las Vegas massacre police response is another, and so is the FLorida UPS truck hijacking where the cops took cover from behind civilians and also had no regard for innocent civilians downrange of the perp they were shooting at.
This kind of cowardly, undisciplined, self-preserving, callousness leads me to conclude that the thin blue line will melt away rapidly under any real, sustained resistance to enforcement. People who are too afraid to do their jobs in normal times will not carry the battle for the establishment in a large emergency.

I had plenty to say about the Miami UPS shootout, and I caught a lot of FLAK for that opinion.

Regarding The UPS shootout, The truth is plain for all to see. There is no excuse. Anyone saying otherwise is an unprincipled man.

I’m not in the least surprised at the firing/quiet rehiring game they played there. I’ll bet my ass they told her up front she was taking a three month leave of absence for PR reasons, and would be reinstated on the sneak once the attention of the stupid sheep was directed elsewhere. It would be informative to find out if her pay and be benefits got busted back down as a rehire, or if she was reinstated at the same or higher rate of salary and accrued benefits.
Like you, I am surprised (and even a bit disappointed, honestly) that the parents of dead kids in Uvalde haven’t acted upon the obvious enablers of the incident becoming a larger scale massacre.
Apparently at this late stage of broken and discontented America, most people just can’t give a fuck about anything, including the insult of seeing the pigs standing around with their dicks in their hands, as their kids get ventilated while captive inside the school building. Hell, they have the video and pictures of the non-response of these shitbags sanitizing their hand (a Pontious Pilate allegory, it would seem), complete with the punisher smart phone wallpaper, for all to have seen and reacted to. The complete lack of deadly indignation at being figuratively kicked in the nuts like that is beyond my ability to comprehend.
But then most people won’t even protect their children by taking them out of public “schools”, foregoing drag queen story hour, and not splurging for trips to disney’s house of child buggery and planned cultural destruction. All of which are easy and effective ways to keep ones children from harm. If they won’t even make that sort of token effort, it seems pretty obvious they consider their kids to be little more than expendable lifestyle accessories.

Its like living through the Darwin special olympics.

Herd Mentality. Fear of starting shit.
As that meme of the kangaroo speaking says so well “after you shoot the first one it gets difficult”.
Everybody talks of their “Red Line” and then what when it’s crossed?
Nada so far.
Once you start capping folks in revenge or whatever your lifestyle becomes that of Jessie James on the run.
Real life, it’s what’s really happening while you’re boasting online.
Protect your family, looks like canned sunshine might be on the menu.

True, but when a parent loses a *child* and a cop doesn’t even lose their job when they actively prevented anyone from doing anything about it? Again, I am surprised that someone didn’t go all braveheart on someone.

I have said that the most shocking stat about the Covidiocy was the 100% survival rate of tyrannical elected officials and bureaucrats. I still can’t believe that some businessman who lost everything (and there were a bunch) didn’t cap one or more of his tormentors. I think people have just been cowed.

Seems the entire Uvalde PD has been suspended. Not fired…yet…but it’s a start .
Divemedic · October 7, 2022 at 10:40 pm
Suspension is the first step. I’ve talked about that before. You can’t just fire government employees. They have to have an administrative hearing first. Usually, they are suspended during the investigation. Perhaps the right thing will finally be done.

Keep in mind that the step from ‘I am not happy and talking about it’ to ‘I am not happy and I’m gonna do something harsh’ is a bit of a rubicon to cross. A lot of people, even nowadays, are wired to accept cops and not push back against them.
But things can, and do, change.
And ‘it’ll never happen’ was the refrain of the engineers at Chernobyl, after all.
J. Smith · October 7, 2022 at 5:24 pm
And on the other end of the reaction, non-reaction scale of law enforcement retards. See story below. Im shocked Bexar County, Texas, with the POS Sheriff that is suing DeSantis, why am I not surprised? Retards tend to find like company.
joe · October 8, 2022 at 1:05 pm
this is the current crop of officers…all they care about is looking pretty in a uniform and driving a clean car…most of them have no clue how to be real police officers…they are dumber then rocks…
