Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that he was misled about the police response at the Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting and is “absolutely livid” about it.
Gov. Abbott had previously praised the “quick response” from law enforcement, which we all now know, was not really the case.
It took over one hour to kill the shooter after local police held back a tactical team from Border Patrol and failed to breach the door and confront the killer as children died in the room.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Gov. Abbott said that he had previously repeated what he was told by law enforcement.

Gov. Abbott was asked about whether or not he had known about the decision not to breach the door where children were trapped inside with the shooter.

“I was on this very stage two days ago, and I was telling the public information that had been told to me [by law enforcement]” he said. “As everybody has learned, the information I was given turned out in part to be inaccurate. I was absolutely livid about that.”

“There are people who deserve answers the most, and those are the families whose lives have been destroyed. They need answers that are accurate. It is inexcusable that they may have suffered from any inaccurate information whatsoever,” the governor continued.
