BREAKING: Uvalde officer had Robb Elementary gunman in his sights before he entered the school…

We are now learning that a Uvalde Police officer had sighted Salvador Ramos with his rifle to shoot him before he entered the school building, but didn’t.

According to the new report, the officer was waiting for permission to pull the trigger:

I would say based on this report that it would be easy to condemn the officer for not going ahead and pulling the trigger and taking out Ramos before he could get in the building. However I’m a little conflicted.

Given the attacks on police officers that we’ve seen in the last few years from Democrat cities all around the country, I can understand why this officer might have felt the need to get permission before firing, to have this department behind him in what could end up being a difficult situation.

At the same time hindsight is 20/20 and taking the shot would have prevented the deaths of so many innocent children. It clearly would have been the right thing to do.

I don’t know exactly what was going through the officer’s mind so I can’t speak to his rationale. But it’s hard to swallow that a Uvalde officer could have prevented all of this carnage and didn’t.
