Dear Ms. Sanchez,

Under the Texas Public Information Act, Tex. Gov’t Code §552.001 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to obtain copies of all records that pertain to the shooting at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday, 24 May 2022. This would include, but isn't limited to, incident reports, police narratives, 9-1-1 call recordings, dispatch radio recordings/transcriptions, CAD tickets, police body camera footage, CCTV/surveillance footage, and any other images, documents, videos, sounds, or other media created by or tendered to your agency in regards to this incident.

I am also requesting a copy of any department policies, memos, or training material that would pertain to the response of an active shooter situation, a mass casualty event, or a school shooting.

Given the obvious and overwhelming worldwide public interest in this incident, I am requesting a waiver of all fees. The disclosure of the requested information will contribute significantly to the public's understanding of both the incident and the response. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.

Because I'm out of state, I am requesting that records be furnished to me digitally.

The Texas Public Information Act requires that you “promptly produce” the requested records unless, within 10 days, you have sought an Attorney General’s Opinion. If you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies of the requested records.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]

[Your Phone number]

Advantages of event systems: You look smart.
Disadvantages of event systems: Everything is out of order and backtraces are useless.

Parent of Texas victim: We moved here from Chicago to be somewhere safer.

How'd that work out for your daughter, pal? You fell for the meme.

Faggots can't wait longer than 10 seconds before kicking down the door in someone's home, but they'll wait indefinitely for the key during a school shooting

'ThE dOoR oPeNs OuTwArD" then I want a commercial, outward opening front door in my house, if that magically makes them cop proof.

Truth is, again, funnier than any parody I could ever write.

What a fucking meme.

Let me paint the picture for you.

It's about 30 minutes after a shooting starts. You see armored vehicles. Cops decked out in military gear are taking cover behind each one.

Over towards the entrance of the school, you see two police officers literally carrying a woman in handcuffs. She has taser leads sticking out of her.

A news crew asks "Is that the shooter?"

One of the officers carrying her proudly says, "No, This Individual Was Interfering With An Active Tactical Operation."

Just then, you hear more gunshots from inside the school. Which doesn't seem too odd, but over in the parking lot, they're having a press conference.

The chief says the while the situation is ongoing, they're not yet engaging the suspect due to concerns of officer safety. They have, however, detained 6 individuals, for interfering in the tactical operation.
