Witness Juan Caranza, 24, who was at the scene as the crime was occurring, says he saw Ramos crash his vehicle and run into the school with an AR-15. Caranza says that they were “more of them,” referring to law enforcement, and “just one of him,” referring to Ramos.
Caranza told the media that he believes police officers should have done more to diffuse the situation, or at least try to do so. Instead, they just meandered about outside the school while the tragedy unfolded.
Why they chose to do this, allowing Ramos almost a full hour to have his way with his victims, remains unknown. Were they told to stand down and not try to stop the tragedy?newstarget Why did Uvalde police stand outside and do nothing while Texas shooter rampaged through Robb Elementary School?
