one of the things that is pretty shocking and weird if you come from a normal developed country is discovering how American small town finances work and how blatantly jobs-for-the-boys a lot of it is twitter.com/MilesKlee/status/1

Imagine living in Boston. You never have to read a piece of writing about it. You couldnโ€™t even name a neighborhood there. Paradise.

The guidelines provide sobering clarity: The first officers may be risking their lives. But, it says, innocent lives take priority.

But how should officers confront the gunman? With a tactical team? The training says that's probably not feasible, because the urgency is so high.

A SINGLE OFFICER, the training says, may need to confront the suspect on their own.

The Uvalde training session 2 months ago relied on guidelines that give explicit expectations for officers responding to an active shooter.

The training is clear: Time is of the essence. The โ€œfirst priority is to move in and confront the attacker.โ€

in the summer of 2020 in Columbus, tanks were brought in to be parked in front of the library, or in alleyways. Literal snipers were on the tops of buildings. All of it, a show to scare people. All those resources, used in an attempt to make people afraid.

Hard to watch after Uvalde, but the town hall for the SFPD police double-homicide demonstrates the exact approach. Two men fighting, one holding a knife, the other restraining his wrist.

Instead of approaching and disarming, they just blasted away two lives, including victim.

US police are trained to maximize control over situations while minimizing their personal risk. that translates into beating parents while a rampage shooter executes their children just as easily as it does their rolling up on a kid with a toy guy and executing him seconds later

scared to ask but has anyone made a timeline of when shots were heard at Uvalde from available audio recordings? beyond horrifying to imagine being a parent forced to wait outside as shots ring out periodically.
