I'm seeing a LOT of "conversions" in #Texas & it's BeautiFULL. Strongly noticeable after #Uvalde ..I saw Texans seemingly waking up from a coma.. then last week or so, Texans watched the #PACTAct #Hypocrisy & #gopPoliticalStunts ..Eyes & Minds are OPEN. HEALING is Happening..
A goood Way 2 observe this, is @BetoORourke rallies..every rally, gop protesters are enCouraged to ask questions, express concerns.. #Beto LISTENS, & with #Respect ,shares how much ALL Texans have in common.."not you OR me, but YOU AND me". Inspiring US to be KIND to each other..
the Way We USED to be, not so long ago. Making Texans realize it's always been about Working TOGETHER to make #Texas the Best it can be, for EVERY One. Watch some of #Beto 's rallies..see Him interact with, & convert, a maga Mind. Lots of videos on it😊✌🏼

Law Enforcement Judges Uvalde Police Response

Read veteran police and responders on the active shooter training failure -> @ZeekArkham @Dakota_Meyer @Sal_LaBarbera @sgtbetsysmith @bigricanman @sidblair… #EmilyPosts
“Personally, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if it was an active shooter, and I didn't engage. And to say I was afraid, or I was waiting for backup. I couldn’t fathom that.”

- @ZeekArkham on #UvaldePolice
“It should be more acceptable to go to 40 first responder funerals before 1 child’s funeral because that’s what WE signed up for when we took our oath.”

I hope everyone reports @RonnyJacksonTX for inciting violence and adding fuel to the fire of major problem of gun violence across our country right now.

These are weapons of war and we just found out #Uvalde had 400 police officials with guns and did NOTHING!
FYI I uploaded on to TikTok and deleted it to post on here so he wouldn’t get views and people would report him.
I will be contacting his office in the morning with some choice words, will post after call and we should flood the lines.

#Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin got question about #UvaldeReport only being released in English, and committee saying it would take 2 weeks to translate to Spanish. Got a friend to run through Google Translate. Hope this is helpful. #txlege…
Note: my Spanish proficiency is very basic and I would love for someone who is fluent to take this document and help improve it to help these families. Thank you :)

This is the husband of teacher Eva Mireles, who contacted him on his phone from her classroom while he was on-scene to say that she’d been shot and was dying. 1/2

#txlege #Uvalde
I’d not planned to speak publicly until the report was released, but I couldn’t say nothing seeing this man, who’s lost everything, maligned as if he was indifferent or actively malicious. Context matters. 2/2
To those who haven’t bothered to read even the news that’s been reported in your rush to judgment, he attempted to engage but was removed from the building and disarmed. We’ll have much to say about the police response, but no criticism of this officer.

PROFITEERING—“Schools that install safety pods can see an increase in revenue due to higher enrollment, as parents feel secure in dropping their children off at schools that offer greater protection from active shooters”. Only in America. 🤦🏻‍♂️ #EndGunViolence
2) this shit is REAL. my next reaction — will rich private schools that can afford these dystopian bunkers be able to buy enough for all kids? If not, will teacher have to choose which kids get bunker protection and which do not? It’s messed up.
The gun-industry propaganda that “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” is completely destroyed by the shocking #Uvalde school videos — and by the testimony of these brave kids who watched the police do nothing for 77 minutes.

Video of #Uvalde Robb Elementary school shooting shows police non-response…
Who is this bastard? He needs to be named & shamed. Hiding while 19 4th graders get slaughtered. Check out the Punisher logo on his phone. #Uvalde #UvaldePoliceCowards #ACAB

THREAD: I’m at Robb Elementary school in #Uvalde where dozens of people have gathered for the Unheard Voices March and Rally in honor of the 21 victims killed here more than a month ago. Follow for updates
Victims’ families reached out to the Brown Berets for help in organizing today’s event. I’ve spoken to several parents of victims who say they want the rally to honor their children, but also demonstrate the community’s demand for gun reform & accountability from law enforcement
Marchers are starting at Robb Elementary and walking to the town square

Biden is going to sign an Executive Order today. We'll see what the final text says, but as an #abortion provider here's the context I can share:
HHS doesn't distribute or prescribe medication abortion. If federal employees need medication abortion, they go to abortion clinics.
As of today, states like Texas and Mississippi don't have #abortion clinics that are providing care, and telemedicine abortion is illegal. Unless the EO grants access to teleMAB to every person in every state, how will this actually get medication abortion to Texans?
EMTALA can't make anyone provide an #abortion or protect us from being arrested. This law requires stabilization in emergency medical situations - "emergencies" are defined broadly and allow for A LOT of subjectivity. The same gray areas I've spoken extensively about will remain.

An armed police officer saw the perpetrator outside of #RobbElementary. Ready to fire, he asked for permission to take the shot and was not given the go by his supervisor before the perpetrator entered the building.

This is a catastrophic failure. #Uvalde…
Since Columbine, officers have been trained that you stop the killing (neutralize the threat) and then stop the dying (render medical aid), regardless of how many are on scene. They also need to be trained / empowered to neutralize the threat before lives are taken.
Here’s a direct link to the report, which catalogs failure after failure:

Philadelphia is the straw purchase AND ghost gun capital of the East Coast. We have shootings every day & more gun homicides than any other big city this year and last. Now we've had two cops shot at THE concert of the year.
#Philly #Shooter
The GOP will claim that this cop shooting in #Philly is about "Democratic lawlessness," but it's actually and only about the proliferation of guns and the refusal by any Republican and some Democrats to do anything at all to control this rampant #GunViolence.
The good news is that no one died in this shooting at the fireworks in #Philly, that it wasn't a mass shooting event like #HighlandPark. But every child at this family event who was told by police to run will be traumatized in a city already beset by too much #GunViolence.

They will fill your family & friends with bullets, then tell you to be peaceful.
They will shoot your love ones while they sleep, and tell you to be peaceful.
They will mistake your people's home, and shoot them for it.

🧵 1/ “You can’t attack me”: @NexusIntel1 says I can’t rebut him, so let’s go. “Nexus Intel” is a categorical troll account who made up a thread about phishing @CanadianUkrain1 - which uncritical OSINTs retweeted - without checking. Image
2/ This troll, whose made up “phishing” thread on @CanadianUkrain1 was retweeted triumphantly by @Osinttechnical @iAmTheWarax and @OAlexanderDK among others - with ZERO checks - pushes Russian propaganda around the clock. Hey! The #Uvalde shooter was an illegal alien! FACTS! Image
3/ In order to push his days-long lies that the Uvalde shooter was an illegal alien and the massacre was Joe Biden’s fault, OSINT accounts’ source, pro-Russian troll @NexusIntel1 claimed he has “family in CBP” and “all illegals are catch and release” ImageImage

I will be watching this hearing, so that likely means some tweets. I can already tell that a lot of these politicians are going to piss me off. We've already got a, “Laws don't work, what about Chicago?”
Steve McCraw is up now.
McCraw says that 18 months before the shooting Ramos started buying supplies. He had asked a relative to buy him a gun and they refused, but he bought magazines, a scope, other accessories. "And he had money." #uvalde
McCraw wandering away from the mic is gonna kill me.

I had a doctor appointment run late and I wasn’t able to drive to Uvalde to cover tonight’s board meeting in person. But the pain and conviction to make sure there’s accountability is palpable even through the livestream. @TPRNews
@TPRNews During public comments at #Uvalde CISD, Jesus Rizo Jr told the board "at one point or another you're going to have to decide whether or not to hold one of your own accountable." He said he can't understand why Pete Arredondo isn't at least suspended right now. @TPRNews
Brett Cross, the uncle of Uziyah Garcia, said "Innocence doesn't hide or change their story. But innocence died on May 24th." Says they were failed by Arredondo & the school district is failing them by keeping him on staff. #Uvalde @TPRNews

#Uvalde. There is only one reason why Texas officials are going after reporters. Tonight, a series of news agencies are releasing information about what happened that night. It is not good, horrifying. Here, this is proof that the police had enough firepower. 1/
Here, I describe @DanaBashCNN how reporters are being attacked and isolated (using biker crews) because Texas wants to hide the information. Any true review of what happened will be because of media. "I've never seen anything like this before" I said. 2/
About the same time, @ShimonPro posted this about closed hearings and Texas officials. @cnn

Bulletproof blankets during active-shooter drills in American schools—yet meanwhile, some claim kids wearing masks in schools is too “traumatizing” for kids.

#EndGunViolence #MaskUp #GunControlNow #CovidIsNotOver
Also insane in America… ducks are more protected than children by gun laws. #EndGunViolence
3) Also insane we have to do this… digital equipment on this type of scale, with smoke shield walls… wouldn’t limiting assault weapons access just be a lot easier?

The #January6thCommitteeHearings started on 6/9/22 evening with witness testimony & video footage surrounding the riot on the Capitol on #J6. The televised hearing is the 1st in a series that is expected to last through July.
I will ask the questions not being asked & quote many.
In all of the video shown on Prime TV by the #January6thCommitteeHearings, I didn't see a single frame w/ Ray Epps as he is seen in multiple videos on Jan 5 & #J6.

Why was Ray Epps encouraging people to go "into" the Capitol building?

Did the FBI hire Ray Epps?
Who is #RayEpps?
@BennieGThompson @RepLizCheney & @RepKinzinger
Does the FBI now, or has it ever, maintained a formal or informal relationship or point of contact w/ Ray Epps, whether directly or indirectly, including through intermediaries?

Uvalde. (Opinion piece)

I've been through a lot of trauma covering what I have seen over the years, and uvalde was hands down the hardest emotional experience i've had. I can't stop seeing those children's faces.

Being at the site of those memorials was hard enough, and I
can't even imagine how incapacitating it would have been to routinely enter the funerals. I had considered it originally, but then couldn't grit my teeth and bear the emotional toll I knew it would have had. Plus as a outsider and a journalist I feel like I may be out of place at
the funerals.

I also didn't want to ask anyone for interviews, I didn't want to out the on the spot pressure of asking for a interview to grieving members of the community, but I noticed that local Main Stream Media and CNN was asking everyone, So I did approach a couple ladies

Big, big, big guns news for a Sunday.

Why I am optimistic and why it matters, a quick 🧵:
Political contrasts w/ 2013 Manchin-Toomey effort: That negotiation dragged for months but these moved fast—it's been 19 days since #Uvalde! Delay lets status quo retrench. And Toomey had no credibility on guns to cover for other Rs but Cornyn does—a Nixon-goes-to-Moscow moment?
On policy, negotiators seem to have dropped big-ticket items in favor of many small+meaningful wins.

First the fluff: promised investments in school security & mental health are as predictable as they are vague + lacking evidence they will measurably affect gun violence but OK.

#tdih 1963 WWII vet Medgar Evers was murdered by white supremacist in driveway outside his home in Jackson.

Evers was @NAACP field secretary for Mississippi & under constant threat in his fight for democracy & against white supremacy. #TeachTruth See 🧵…
Medgar Evers investigated murders of African Americans that police ignored & blocked. He conducted interviews, sought evidence, demanded justice, & exposed white supremacist violence & terrorism. 📷Evers interviews Melton about murder of husband. She "died" before testifying. Woman with four small children sitting on a bed in conversat
Sound familiar?

Not only did the police not investigate murders of African Americans, they blocked efforts by Evers & others to do so.

Evers risked his life to do the work the police were supposed to. #Uvalde

THIS is the history the right is censoring with "anti-CRT" bills.

🔴Texas says you can’t have >3 shotgun shells loaded into a duck 🦆 hunting shotgun, or else you’ll kill too many ducks.

🟢Also in Texas: You can buy AR-15 assault rifles & buy large capacity magazines for maximal carnage and reload capacity to kill #Uvalde school kids.

😡 Image
2) Also reminder, Texas has laws that restrict how many dildos a person can own—more specifically “obscene devices” —“designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs.” The limit to the number you can own in Texas is 6…
3) Whether it’s duck hunting shotguns or Pelotons, they all get more action than gun violence policy and COVID mitigation
