Uvalde School Shooting Survivors Sue Police

  • Survivors and the families of victims from the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on May 24 that saw 19 children and two teachers killed have banded together to file a $27 million class action lawsuit against several law enforcement groups over their failures that day.
  • “[T]he conduct of the three hundred and seventy-six (376) law enforcement officials who were on hand for the exhaustively torturous seventy-seven minutes of law enforcement indecision, dysfunction, and harm, fell exceedingly short of their duty bound standards,” the lawsuit reads.
  • The Uvalde school district in Texas suspended its entire police force on October 7 in the wake of their failure to adequately respond to the slaughter at the school.
