According to an explosive report, there were multiple systemic failures that allowed the Uvalde school massacre to take place, including “relaxed vigilance” over illegal immigration.
The border crisis reportedly helped foster lax security at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas where 19 children and two teachers were slaughtered by a deranged shooter.
Evidently, vehicles suspected of human smuggling are being observed by law enforcement on an escalating basis. When authorities attempt to pull over a suspicious vehicle, the driver often refuses to stop and takes off. That is a scenario that many times ends in a crash and the driver and passengers abandoning, or “bailing out,” of the car.
These “bailouts” trigger security alerts at schools in the area including Robb Elementary School. Since the alerts are not a danger to the school or students, they are usually ignored, according to the report.
One of the things “contributing to relaxed vigilance [at Robb Elementary] was the frequency of security alerts and campus lockdowns resulting from a recent rise of ‘bailouts,’” the report asserts.
“The frequency of these ‘bailout’-related alarms — around 50 of them between February and May of 2022 — contributed to a diminished sense of vigilance about responding to security alerts,” the investigation noted, alluding to desensitization over the issue.
School district officials claim there had been 47 “secure” or “lockdown” events since February 2022. Around 90% of those had been because of bailouts, according to King5.
Authorities believe that the killer’s crash was seen as just another “bailout” that may have caused the police to slow their response to the incident, according to the report.
