The relatives of those slain in the 2022 Uvalde school massacre met with U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland one day before the release of a government report on the erratic and disorganized law enforcement response to the tragedy.

What Happened?

Garland observed murals depicting the victims that have been painted throughout Uvalde on Wednesday. The trauma of the shooting, which claimed the lives of two teachers and nineteen primary school pupils, is still affecting the 15,000-person community. Family members were also privately briefed by Justice Department representatives on the report’s contents on Wednesday at a Uvalde community center. The U.S. Department of Justice conducted the study.

Only a few days after the incident, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services began its study, and local prosecutors are currently assessing the results of a separate criminal investigation conducted by the Texas Rangers. A number of the implicated cops have lost their jobs.

Law Enforcement

According to the Justice Department, the investigation’s findings would “provide an independent account of law enforcement actions and response that day” and highlight the most effective strategies and lessons discovered to assist first responders in becoming ready for active shooter situations.

After the discussion on Wednesday night, Berlinda Arreola, whose granddaughter was murdered in the shooting, stated that local prosecutors, who are also looking into the police response on a criminal basis, were still in charge of holding people accountable.

Legislative hearings, news stories, and a stinging report by Texas lawmakers have already discussed the shooting. The lawmakers blamed law enforcement at all levels for failing “to prioritize saving innocent lives over their own safety.”

Following the tragedy in Uvalde, around 85 miles southwest of San Antonio, there has been a close examination of the way police respond to mass shootings nationwide.
