(TJV NEWS) In a very defensive press conference this morning, Texas DPS Director Steven McCraw admitted said the decision of officers to wait to enter the building was the “wrong” one.

“In retrospect, from where I am sitting from right now, clearly there were kids in the room. It’s important for live saving proposes to immediately get there and render aid,” McCraw said.
“Of course it was not the right decision, it was the wrong decision.”
It was the wrong decision, very wrong. There’s no excuse for that. … When there’s an active shooter, the rules change. There is no longer a barricaded subject. You don’t have time,” he said.
McCraw added that “if I thought it would help, I would apologize.”

Questions have been raised amid mounting public anger and scrutiny about the response of law enforcement as more details emerge about the timeline of events, Zero Hedge wrote.

Texas DPS spokesman Lt. Chris Olivarez said the first priority for officers in an active shooter situation is to stop the killing and preserve life.

“But also one thing that, of course, the American people need to understand, is that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is,” Oliverez told CNN.
“They are hearing gunshots. They are receiving gunshots. At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and at that point, that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.”
