On May 24, 2022, 18-year-old Salvador Rolando Ramos fatally shot nineteen students and two teachers and wounded seventeen other people at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, United States. Earlier in the day, he shot his grandmother in the forehead at home, severely wounding her. Outside the school, he fired shots for approximately five minutes, before entering with an AR-15 style rifle through an open side-entrance door without encountering armed resistance. He then locked himself inside a classroom, killed nineteen students and two teachers, and remained there for around one hour before a United States Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) fatally shot him. This was the third-deadliest American school shooting, after the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, and the deadliest in Texas.
Law enforcement officials were criticized for their actions in response to the shooting, and their conduct is being reviewed in separate investigations by the Texas Ranger Division and the United States Department of Justice. After initially praising first responders to the shooting, Texas Governor Greg Abbott called for an investigation into the lack of action by incident commanders. Police officers waited 78 minutes on-site before breaching the classroom to engage Ramos. Police also cordoned off the school grounds, resulting in violent conflicts between police and civilians who were attempting to enter the school to rescue children. Afterwards, local and state officials gave inaccurate reports of the timeline of police actions and overstated police actions. The Texas Department of Public Safety acknowledged that it was an error for law enforcement to delay an assault on Ramos’ position in the student-filled classroom, attributing this to the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District’s police chief’s assessment of the situation as one with a “barricaded subject” instead of an “active shooter”.
Following the shooting, which took place only ten days after the 2022 Buffalo shooting at a supermarket, wider discussions ensued about American gun culture and violence, gridlock in politics, and law enforcement’s failure to halt the attack. Some have advocated for a renewal of an assault weapons federal ban. Others criticized politicians for their perceived role in continuing to enable mass shootings. Republicans have responded by resisting the implementation of gun control measures and instead called for increasing security measures in schools, such as arming teachers. They also expressed concerns about the politicization of the shooting. Some Republican senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed an openness for a bipartisan agreement on gun reform, such as incentivizing states to pass red flag laws and expanding background checks for gun purchasers.
Initial reports from Texas DPS spokesman Victor Escalon stated that Salvador Ramos shot his grandmother, DM’ed some friends about it on Facebook telling them he was going to now shoot up a school, and then drove to Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX. At 11:28 am he crashed his truck into a large drainage ditch. It appears as though he drove into the ditch by crashing the gate that was securing it, smashing up the front of the truck and snapping the axles on the front left and rear left of the truck.
According to Escalon’s presser, this commotion caused two men from the funeral home to come outside and approach the truck. Ramos shot at the two men and they quickly fled, uninjured. The map below shows the funeral home, Robb Elementary, where the truck crashed (red circle) and the unobstructed view out of the windows of the school (large arrow). It also shows the area of the doorway where Ramos allegedly entered the building (small red arrow).
Now is where things get confusing. Victor Escalon told us that at “11:40, he walks into the west side of Robb Elementary. According to reports, video we have obtained from outside, inside, and again, we’re still combing through that…so bear with us…multiple rounds, numerous rounds are discharged in the school…four minutes later (11:44), local police departments…are inside making entry.”
This would imply that there was approximately 12 minutes between the crash and initial shots, and Ramos’s ultimate entry into the school. According to Escalon, this is confirmed by video. I would imagine that, in his notes for the press conference, he had the times from the video written down and referenced those. He was descriptive enough to tell us what he did inside the building: “At 11:40, he walks approximately 20ft…30ft…he walks into the hallway, he makes a right, walks another 20ft. Turns left into a school room. Into a classroom…that has doors that open in the middle.”
Now again: that time is important. That is now twice Escalon has referenced that time, 11:40, as the time he entered and said it came from video evidence that they have.
- 11:27: One minute before Ramos crashes his truck, a teacher props open the door which Ramos eventually uses to enter the school. This door is reportedly normally *locked*.
- 11:28: Ramos crashes into the ditch. The teacher runs to room 132 to retrieve a phone. The same teacher walks back to the exit door and the door remains propped open.
- (No time given): Ramos opens the truck and two men from the funeral home, who were checking on him, take off running when they see a gun. They’re shot at but no one is hit.
- 11:30: The teacher runs back inside, panicked, and apparently calls 911. Door remains propped open. The use of the word “apparently” is peculiar. At this point in the investigation, with this detailed of a timeline, you would think that teacher has been identified, confirmed and a statement taken, that they did in fact call 911.
- 11:31: suspect reaches last row of vehicles in school parking lot. It is at this point that McGraw reiterates Escalon’s point that there was no UCISD officer (Uvalde Co Independent School District) on scene or on campus, but that the officer (who was normally on campus?) sped back to where he thought the shooter would be, which turned out to be a teacher. In doing so, he drove right by the suspect, who was hunkered down behind a vehicle. Ramos then began shooting at the school.
- 11:32: Suspect shoots more rounds into the school.
- 11:33: Suspect enters the school. Note: law enforcement is *reportedly* at the funeral home 100-200ft from the entrance Ramos used. In the two minutes that reportedly elapsed, no one was able to pinpoint his location and engage? Had the door been properly closed and locked, Ramos would not have gained entry to the school, at least not as easily as he did.
- 11:33: Suspect shoots into room 111 or 112. It is unclear from video. Audio evidence suggests he shot at least 100 rounds.
- 11:35: Three police officers (Uvalde PD) enter the same door Ramos used. Then another team of 3 UPD officers and a Uvalde Sheriff deputy enter. Two of the first three officers received grazing wounds from the suspect while the door was closed.
- 11:37-11:44: 16 more rounds were fired by Ramos.
- 11:43: Robb Elementary School’s official Facebook page announced that the school was indeed placed on lockdown due to gunshots heard around the area. Lockdowns were happening twice weekly before the shooting so according to reports, many were numb to them.
- 11:51: A police sergeant and USB (Border Patrol?) agents arrive.
- 11:52: A report by the Austin American-Statesman (contrary to initial reports) shows Uvalde police were in the hallway of Robb Elementary School with rifles and at least one ballistic shield
- 12:03: Officers continue to arrive. As many as 19 officers are now in the hallway outside the classroom.
- 12:15: BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit) members arrive with ballistic shields. They arrived far earlier than previously reported. CPB BORTAC SWAT team was investigating stash houses on the border to the west of Uvalde and agents not in the SWAT team also rushed to the school, according to a report from Texas Monthly.
- 12:21: Suspect shoots again.
- 11:50 (12:50?): They breach the door using keys from janitor “because both doors were locked when officers arrived.” Suspect is killed.
Both of these timelines, comparatively, are very confusing and somewhat contradictory of each other. How is it that two full days after the event, the timestamps from the videos used for the initial press conference were not accurately portrayed to the press, but distances and other relevant details were? There is already enough pressure and outrage over the fact that it took almost an hour and a half from the wreck to the suspect’s demise, the majority of that with Ramos INSIDE the classroom. Such reporting inaccuracies from DPS is ridiculous and leads to lack of faith and transparency in reporting.
Shimon Prokupecz of CNN put it best when he asked Escalon yesterday: “What were the officers doing between 11:44 and 12:44?…We’ve been given a lot of bad information…so why don’t you clear all of this up now and explain to us how your officers were in there for an hour, yes rescuing people, but no one was able to get inside that room?”
- Why did a *teacher* prop open a secure entry exactly one minute before the shooter arrived on scene?
- Why did that teacher not close the door and ensure it was locked when they reportedly saw the accident, the shots fired, retrieved their phone, and called 911 to report it?
- Col. McGraw said the teacher “apparently” called 911…has DPS confirmed the teacher called 911? Have they confirmed it was a teacher who propped open the door?
- Why did the timeline shrink by seven minutes from Day 1 to Daywhen yesterday’s press conference was given based on video evidence as stated by Escalon in the presser? It was not as if Escalon responded to a question, off the cuff, with the times. It was part of his deliberate and detailed statement to the press. Are you telling me something as important as time, which he reiterates the time twice, was inaccurate on the video? Or did he just make up “11:40” when he was writing the press conference without bothering to confirm the time?
- Where was the school’s police officer and why was he not on school property? Where was he that he was able to respond in under three minutes time but unable to find the wrecked truck and correlate the closest entry to the school to the wreck? How did he not hear the gun shots going off in his immediate vicinity when he, or other officers, were reportedly at the funeral home?
- Why were seven officers not able to breach a room with two doors and windows to eliminate the suspect?
- Why could they STILL not breach the room with 19 officers?
- Why did it take a BORTAC unit and ballistic shields to breach the room?
- Why was BORTAC even there? A federal law enforcement agency tasked with border protection is somehow on scene in a school shooting?
- Why were US Marshalls out front of the school in adequate PPE (personal protective equipment) holding back parents and waving tasers at them, but not helping with the situation inside the school?
- Col. McGraw reported that BORTAC used keys from the janitor to “breach” the room. Let’s be real: it’s simply called unlocking…breaching is defined as “to make a gap in by battering” according to Merriam Webster Save the “heroic” sounding words for the investigations. But I digress: If BORTAC was able to “breach” with the keys after an hour outside the room, would Ramos have been able to “breach” the classroom if the doors were locked? Were they locked and if not, why?
- How did an 18-year-old, with no known employment, who was living with his grandmother because of an addicted mother, afford:
- Two expensive firearms made by Daniel Defense ($2,000 each)
- an EOTech optic ($400-$700)
- 1,657 rounds of .223 ammo ($800-1000 depending on how they were purchased)
- body armor ($500-1000)
- and over 60 magazines ($10-20 each)?
For a total of approximately $6300 to $8,000? Most established adult Americans, especially after the last two years and the current economy, can’t afford a fraction of that. But this young 18-year-old was able to do so with no known job and all on a debit (not credit!) card? In a border town reportedly overrun by the worst of the worst from the US Border… make your own assumptions.
To make the story even more bizarre, The Guardian News interviewed Ramos’s mother. She said “He had his reasons for doing what he did. And please don’t judge him. I just want…to the innocent children who died, forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive my son. I know he had his reasons….To get closer to his children… instead of paying attention to things, the other bad things…” The description on the YouTube video says “Full report: Texas police made ‘wrong decision’, says official”
911 CALL TIMELINE:
- 12:03: Caller from Room 112 calls for 1 min 23 seconds, whispering she’s in Room 112.
- 12:10: Calls back and advised “multiple dead”
- 12:13: Calls again
- 12:16: Calls again and says “8-9 students alive”
- 12:19: Another caller in Room 111 calls and hangs up when another student tells her to hang up.
- 12:21: Another call where you can hear three shots fired.
- 12:36: Another call for 21 seconds. Caller/Student was told to stay on the line and be quiet. Student said “he shot the door”.
- 12:43 and 12:47: She asks 911 to “please send the police NOW”
- 12:46: She said she could hear the police next door.
- 12:50: shots are fired.
- 12:51: It’s loud and sounds like officers are moving children out of the room.
We are told the shooter brought 15 total magazines into the school. 11 were dropped inside the school. Three were on the suspect’s body. Two were in room 112. Six were inside room 111. Five were on the ground and one was in the rifle.
32 magazines were left outside the school: one outside the building and 31 inside the suspects backpack that he did not take into the classrooms with him.
There were 15 magazines at the crash site. Two left at his residence.
He had a total of 1,657 rounds of ammunition. 315 were inside the school. 142 were spent. 173 were live rounds. 922 were outside the school. 22 were spent. 900 were live. 422 were at the crash site. 22 were spent. 400 were live.
Known to the FBI
Two boys, at the time 13 and 14, were arrested in 2018 for planning a Columbine-inspired attack on an Uvalde school — in 2022. The boys, who were not named at the time of their arrests, would be 17 and 18 now. At the time of the teen’s arrests, Uvalde Chief of Police Daniel Rodriguez said that a Morales Junior High School student, 14, and a former Morales student, 13, were planning to conduct the attack four years from then. They were soon arrested again, less than a week later for Conspiracy to Commit Murder. (TGP)
- Ramos sent a Facebook message about shooting his grandma, and then another about going to shoot up the school before he left for Robb Elementary. According to reports, Ramos made two FaceTime calls with a German girl he met on social media, known as CeCe, where he shared his plot to carry out school shootings.
- In September of 2021, Ramos asked his sister to help him buy a gun, to which she refused.
- Ramos had a Instagram chat where he discussed “being a school shooter” on Feb 28, 2022. He then discussed buying a gun in March 1 2022 on Instagram. On March 3, 2022 someone on Instagram said “Word on the street, you’re buying a gun” to which Ramos replied “I just bought something rn (right now)”.
- March 14th, 2022, on Instagram, Ramos said “10 more days”. A user replied “Are you going to shoot up a school or something?” Ramos answered “No…stop asking dumb questions. You’ll see”
- Salvador Ramos Threatened Rape and Mass School Shootings on French Social Media App Weeks Before Heinous Crime – USERS REPORTED HIS ACCOUNT BUT NOTHING HAPPENED
Initially, there were news reports that said the shooter had been detained and brought to a local detention center. Jordan Sather was able to screenshot this report before the narrative quickly changed and news reports said the shooter had been killed. Of course with stressful, fast moving events, it’s understandable that details can get misreported. The problem is how many times after these false flags that this happens. Almost like sometimes these shootings are planned, and it’s tough for them to manage the proper narratives??
It’s now 100% clear that the Uvalde mass shooting was a “stand down operation,” meaning law enforcement was deliberately ordered to stand down so that the massacre could take place. The goal? Gun control, of course.
“Go in there! Go in there!” Women shouted at officers as the officers stood there and did not go into the school to intervene and prevent the carnage, according to the AP. The gunman was barricaded in a classroom for 40 minutes, where he murdered 19 children and 2 teachers.
A father who lost a daughter in the massacre raised the idea of charging in themselves, without weapons, while the police stood idly by.
“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” Javier Cazares said. “More could have been done.” His daughter Jacklyn Cazares was killed inside. When he heard about the shooting, he raced to the school only to find officers standing outside.
This video from the scene shows police pinning one person—presumably a parent—to the ground while other officers have drawn their tasers in order to further threaten and intimidate the parents who begged the police to take action.

We also have a story from the left-wing media outlet MSN, declaring, “Uvalde Police Officer Admits Cops Saved Their Own Kids From Robb Elementary Before Stopping Shooter“:
The officer said, “There [were] some police officers’ families trying to get their kids out of school because it was an active shooter situation.”
The officer continued to talk about the situation while trying to justify the officers that went in to save their children initially.
Video shows devastated parents pleading with officers to enter the school as the cries and screams of the children could be heard inside.
So wait… the same cops who tackled parents, pepper-sprayed one dad and tackled other parents to prevent them from going in were, themselves, rushing in just to save their own kids? When police finally did enter the scene, many of them ignored the shooter in order to find their own children, as admitted by police personnel on the scene—who also repeated a propaganda line about “those brave men and women.”
One of the most frustrating developments in all this is the fact that Texas DPS spokesman Lt. Chris Olivarez said in an interview with CNN that officers couldn’t continue to pursue the suspect immediately because, “they could have been shot.” This has been reported by The Epoch Times:
A Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) official has said officers “could have been shot” if they engaged the gunman holed up with his victims in a classroom at Robb Elementary School before a specialist tactical team arrived.
“They are hearing gunshots. They are receiving gunshots. At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and at that point, that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.”
By this standard, then, all firefighters should just stand back and watch buildings burn down, because if they try to fight the fire, “They could have been burned.”
And I suppose all military soldiers should refuse to fight on the battlefield because if they enter they battlefield, “They could have received artillery fire.”
100 Percent Fed Up reports – Off-duty Customs and Border Protection agent Jacob Albarado was sitting down for a haircut at his barber when he received a chilling text from his wife, a fourth-grade teacher at Uvalde’s Robb Elementary School. Albarado leapt from his chair, commandeered the barber’s shotgun which he kept in the shop, and rush to the elementary school, where he there made plans with the other officers to rescue the children trapped inside with the maniacal shooter.
Albarado and the officers he had made the evacuation plan with entered the school in the wing where his second-grade daughter was and swiftly began to clear each classroom, guiding dozens of terrified children and teachers out of the school and to safety.
Police Have No Legal Duty to Protect You
But don’t expect the police to face any repercussions or be held to account. It is now a well-established legal principle in the federal courts that in spite of the marketing gimmick motto of “Protect and Serve,” police are not actually under any obligation to protect the public from harm.
In the cases DeShaney v. Winnebago and Town of Castle Rock v. Gonzales, the Supreme Court has ruled that police agencies are not obligated to protect citizens. In other words, police are well within their rights to pick and choose when to intervene to protect the lives and property of others—even when a threat is apparent.
In both of these court cases, clear and repeated threats were made against the safety of children—but government agencies chose to take no action. The public is generally unaware of this, and taxpayers continue to pay handily for the nonprotection they receive from police. In Uvalde, Texas, for instance, police “services” constitute nearly 40 percent of the city budget. Meanwhile, according to Salary.com, a sheriff’s patrol sergeant in Uvalde makes up to $85,400. That’s nearly double the local median household income of $45,936. In Uvalde, the police are well paid to stand around.
Fact Checkers Activate!
Thankfully we have such authorities to tell us what to think. It would be a pain in the ass to have to develop our own independent thought. Politi-fact, helping us get things right, since…. never! They were quickly tasked with fact-checking the idea of this shooting being a false flag. According to them, it wasn’t. That’s it everybody! Time to pack up and go home, nothing to see here.
Super Suspicious CBS Guy + More 14’s
CBS news rushed their propaganda onto the airwaves after the Texas shooting occurred, as to be expected. As Red Pill Pharmacist noted on Telegram, the guest who gave CBS an interview, who they claimed was a father of a child in the Parkland shooting (true or not?), had some very interesting choices of words when he gave his interview. Listen below. Was this a message to the white hats to cease and desist? Cease and desist exposing election fraud, the Spygate ring, and other Cabal activities?
Does this father of a previous tragic shooting sound as if he’s putting out a threat to the white hats? Almost like a ‘cease-and-desist — or there will be more.’? Something feels off with this.
Is it just me??

I looked at the background of this gentleman and saw a couple interesting things. Not only did he have a bunch of cringey “Just F**king Vote” liberal propaganda to his right, but on his left he has a jersey with that curious number that tends to often show up with these shootings: 14. Could this number have just been in the background by coincidence? Sure. But….
Jordan Sather notes how this number, 14, showed up on both the rifle of the Buffalo shooter and the Christchurch New Zealand shooter. The same number 14 that was painted on John Podesta’s hand in a creepy symbolic photo, the same Podesta who happened to be in Christchurch just days before that shooting!
Seems pretty odd for this 14 to show up in a CBS report of the Texas shooting also. And speaking of CBS, they have a show called “FBI” on their network, and CBS decided to cancel the season finale of this series right after the shooting because of… check this… the season finale featured a school shooting.
Maybe CBS stands for the “CIA’s Broadcasting Stations”. Granted, we could call many mainstream outlets that name.
Quick Calls for Gun Control
And it only took an hour or two for the Swamp rats to being calling for gun control after the Texas shooting happened (as expected). Heck, they were probably drafting their responses the day before the shooting.
Video footage was released on July 12th, 2022 that shows Uvalde police officers running down the hallway at Robb Elementary School as gunman Salvador Ramos shot children dead in two classrooms. The footage, first obtained by the Austin-American Statesman, shows cops retreating down the hall after they heard gunfire. A rifle-armed Uvalde officer sighted in to shoot the Robb Elementary attacker before he entered the school but instead waited for supervisor permission.
