I have one simple question about this.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is reviewing how 91 state troopers and Rangers responded to the Robb Elementary School shooting to determine if any violated policies or laws.
The agency’s announcement Monday that it had formed an internal committee for the inquiry comes nearly two months after an 18-year-old gunman killed 19 students and two teachers in Texas’ worst school shooting — and one day after a Texas House panel report found that 376 law enforcement officers from several agencies descended on the scene in a chaotic, uncoordinated response that stretched for 73 more minutes.
The DPS committee, formed last week, will also determine “where the department can make necessary improvements for future mass casualty responses,” according to a department statement.
“No additional information will be available until the committee has completed its full review of the department’s response,” the statement said.
See here for the background. My one simple question: Did DPS not already know how many of its officers were there on the scene? That seems like a very basic fact that they should have been aware of from the beginning. What else does DPS not know about what its officers are doing? I sure hope we find out when they release their committee’s report. They will release it, right? Right?
