    The degree of anger this is causing on the US blogs I read, whooo boy, I don’t blame them one bit.
    Particularly with a government telling people to rely on them for protection etc. It’s going down like a lead balloon.

    The typical do-nothing reaction I would expect from Australian police to an armed threat.
    But they are quick to hand out a good bashing to grannies and unarmed, peaceful protesters.

    Like most western institutions, the police are no longer fit for purpose. Political correctness and OHS has destroyed them.

    As the old saying says: “he who hesitates is lost.”
    There is absolutely no time for vacillation with an armed gunman on the loose.
    This appears to be a case of police cowardice.

    Let me see, a high death toll in a school shooting favours which side of politics?

    Just saying

    “They could’ve been shot. They could’ve been killed.”

    – Texas police lieutenant explains why law enforcement did not go into Uvalde school right away.

    Matt Walsh again:

    Yes. That’s your job. Your job is to put your life on the line to protect the innocent. If you aren’t willing to do it, quit and go work at Walmart.

    It really, really isn’t their job … I know they like to be respected as if that’s what they are doing out there, but it has been legally proven many times in court that police have NO duty to serve and protect … none.

    It would be great if regular folks would pay attention and figure this out.

  8. Lee says:

    No Walker, Texas Ranger, among those police.
    Disgraceful and cowardly.

  9. C.L. says:

    I guess it comes down to the meaning of “duty,” Tel.
    For example, it could also be argued that a father has no legally enforceable duty to save his child from a deadly whirlpool or a pit bull.

    Most people use the word to convey that which is above and beyond the mandatory.

    Mises and the libertarians are of course pushing a 2nd Amendment take on self-defence.

    So, like Lindt Cafe then.

  11. Tel says:

    For future reference … I’ve read that Police Chief Pete Arredondo gave the order for local police to perform shovel leaning and nut scratching manoeuvres on the day.

    Something even more disturbing is that the shooter was farting around in the street for more than 10 minutes … without even entering the school … and the school was aware of the threat and had already issued “Lockdown” instructions. One of the teachers had propped open an exit door, not a little bit open but quite a lot because it was easily visible. That was the convenient entrance used by the gunman, thus bypassing their “Lockdown” protections completely.
