A little over one week has passed since the horrific mass murder of a grandmother, and then 19 young school children and their two teachers at a public school in Uvalde Texas and the nation still does not have a clear understanding of what happened or the details of the now-deceased teenage who caused such damage to the small community.
What we know is that Democrat Joe Biden did not bring any comfort to the community on his recent visit to the area, as onlookers booed at him- and told him to “do something”.
Real America’s Voice Ben Bergquam also was in Uvalde to investigate some of the details about the situation that have been made public, and what he uncovered makes the details even more confusing.
“8 days later and it seems more questions than answers about the Uvalde shooting. -The timeline originally suggested it took him 30 minutes to drive from his grandma’s house to the school so I decided to drive it. It only took me 55 seconds,” Bergquam wrote.
Salvador Ramos, before shooting a classroom of children, first shot his grandmother who lived near the school. He shot her in the face, authorities said, then left her for dead. Before she died, she was calling the police, and at that time Ramos is said to have gotten into a truck, which was later described as having “crashed” at the site.
Facebook has confirmed that Ramos was community by private message with someone and telling that person the details of what he had done.
But Bergquam reported that he has first-hand information that Ramos couldn’t drive. And there are many questions about where he would have gotten money for so many guns and ammo for the guns.
Bergquam also made a great point that the left want to concentrate on the guns, and not anything else. Biden proved Bergquam right:
During Biden’s visit to the area, he talked about leveraging the people’s grief for his radical far-left politics.
Biden addressing the shooting in Uvalde: “Don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage. . . What in god’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone? Deer aren’t running through the forest with kevlar vests on for god’s sake. It’s just sick.”
The reaction to Biden’s visit was not favorable to Biden, who has done nothing to answer questions about what law enforcement knows about the tragedy and only talked about taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.
Texas Tribune reported updates to their story about the shootings, on Wednesday:
A U.S. Border Patrol agent killed the shooter, Abbott said.
University Hospital in San Antonio admitted four patients from Uvalde, three children ages 9 and 10 and a 66-year-old woman. The woman and a 10-year-old girl are in serious condition while two girls age 9 and 10 are in good condition, the hospital system tweeted Wednesday morning.
“The reality is as horrible as what happened, it could have been worse,” Abbott said.
Investigators “don’t see a motive or catalyst right now” for the shooting, McCraw said.
More details about the shooter have come to light. The gunman had reportedly dropped out of high school, Abbott said, and had no known criminal history.
Ariana Diaz, a senior at Uvalde High School and one of the shooter’s former classmates, described him as a “popular loner” — someone everyone knew and who had friends, but still kept to himself.
He was bullied over his speech impediment, Diaz said, and would occasionally bully others.
The gunman missed a lot of school prior to the pandemic, Diaz said. The teacher in a leadership class they were in together sophomore year often harangued the shooter for his absences, Diaz recalled.
“I feel like right now we’re all just too in shock to like even think about why he could have done this,” Diaz said. “We’re still grieving and it’s difficult to know that he was one of our classmates back in the day and he did this to so many innocent children.”
Neither Facebook nor authorities said Wednesday who the shooter was messaging, but CNN reported the gunman sent messages to a 15-year-old girl he met online, telling her that he “just shot my grandma in her head” and planned to “shoot up” an elementary school.
