Arrendondo needs to stop talking until the investigation is over. He needs to speak through his attorney. LE has been receiving death threats. When you are under duress your words may not come out the way you intend them to. He’s damned if he speaks and damned if he doesn’t at this point. IMHO
Video: Uvalde school district police chief Pete Arredondo pushes back on allegations he's been uncooperative - CNN VideoCNN's Shimon Prokupecz confronts Pedro "Pete" Arredondo, the embattled Uvalde school district police chief who led the response to the Robb Elementary School shooting, on the Texas DPS director's allegations that Arredondo has been uncooperative in the investigation.www.cnn.com
Shimon Prokupecz has been relentless in trying to get answers from Arrendondo.
My heart closed when Shimon tried to get Arrendondo to comment and he stonewalled by saying that out of respect for the families, he wouldn't comment until the funerals were over and the families "quit grieving."
What does that mean? When do you "quit grieving" over your child being blasted into shreds by an AR-15?
When Shimon was relating this to Anderson Cooper, I was wishing Anderson would mention how he's still grieving for his brother who committed suicide over 30 years ago.
Shimon tracked Arrendondo down and that was the IMO unfeeling response he got. I would respect Arrendondo on some level if he would give an answer, an explanation, an apology, show some grief. But he will talk when the families "quit grieving?" Like it's an annoyance that he has to endure so he can continue his career.
IMO this is why this edict is coming down that the media is on "private property."
