Nineteen students and two teachers were killed Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Salvador Ramos who killed 19 kids and two teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, was a local high school student with few if any friends who officials said legally purchased two assault rifles and scores of ammo last week for his 18th birthday.
Salvador Ramos was identified as the gunman who stormed into Robb Elementary on Tuesday with an assault rifle and tactical vest, barricaded himself in adjoining classrooms of children, and opened fire, authorities said. Responding officers eventually forced their way into the room and a Border Patrol officer fatally shot him.
The heinous attack came just two days before students were set to be released for the summer and left a community and nation asking yet again: Who would do this, and why? An examination of Ramos' personal background reveals a bullied loner with no criminal history and -- like so many other mass shooters in America -- interest in and access to high-powered firearms and ammunition in a political system that prioritizes gun rights.
He purchased guns and ammo last week
The profile image from an Instagram account is tied to the suspected Uvalde shooter, identified as Salvador Ramos.The suspect's actions leading up to the shooting offer hints at his mindset and plan. Ramos legally purchased two AR platform rifles at a local federal firearms licensee on May 17 and on May 20, according to Texas state Sen. John Whitmire, who received a briefing from law enforcement Tuesday night. He also purchased 375 rounds of ammunition on May 18, Whitmire said, citing law enforcement.
State Sen. Ronald Gutierrez, who represents Uvalde, said the purchases were made for the suspect's 18th birthday." It's the first thing he did when he turned 18," he told CNN's Erin Burnett Tuesday evening, citing a briefing he received from Texas Rangers. Gutierrez said the guns were bought legally from a federally authorized dealer in the Uvalde area. "(He) had no problem accessing those weapons," he said.
A photo of two AR15-style rifles appeared on an Instagram account tied to the gunman three days before the shooting. Part of the image has been obscured by CNN to remove the name of a third party. A photo of two AR15-style rifles appeared on an Instagram account tied to the suspect just three days before the massacre. The photo was posted as a story under the username "salv8dor_." Multiple classmates confirmed the account belonged to the suspected gunman.
He shot his grandmother and crashed his vehicle before entering the school's shooting spree began Tuesday prior to arriving at Robb Elementary. Ramos first shot his grandmother at her home and then fled the scene, authorities said. The grandmother was airlifted to a hospital and is still alive as of Wednesday morning, said Lt. Chris Olivarez, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). From there, the suspect crashed his vehicle into a ditch near the elementary school and emerged with a rifle and a backpack while wearing a tactical vest that holds extra ammunition, said DPS Sgt. Erick Estrada.
A police vehicle is seen parked near a truck believed to belong to the suspect on May 24, 2022.
Ramos moved toward the school and entered through a back door, DPS Director Steve McCraw said. A school resource officer "engaged" him but no shots were fired, he said. He then barricaded himself in a classroom and an adjoining classroom opened fire at those inside. All of the 19 children and two teachers killed were in those rooms, Olivarez said.
The initial group of officers that were on scene, at that point, we're at a point of a disadvantage because the shooter was able to barricade himself inside that classroom. There was not sufficient manpower at that time and their main, their primary focus was to preserve any further loss of life," Olivarez said. "So they started breaking windows around the school, and trying to rescue, evacuate children and teachers while that was going on."A specialized tactical team forced their way into the classroom and fatally shot the suspect, Olivarez said. One officer was shot and had a non-life-threatening injury, he added.
Uvalde firefighter Chip King told CNN's Jim Sciutto that it took about 30 minutes after he arrived on the scene for the gunman to be neutralized by law enforcement. Investigators found one of the suspect's rifles, manufactured by Daniel Defense, in the school with the suspect, Whitmire said, citing the ATF. The gunman's other rifle was left in the truck that crashed. In addition, it appears the suspect dropped a backpack with several magazines of ammunition near the entrance of the school, authorities told the state senator. Inside the school, authorities found what appears to be seven 30-round magazines.
He was a local student with few if any friends
Those who knew the suspect personally largely described him as a loner with little if any social life. The suspect attended a local high school and lived with his grandparents, Olivarez said. He had no friends and had no criminal history or gang affiliation, he added. He worked the day shift at a local Wendy's and kept mostly to himself, the restaurant's manager confirmed to CNN."He felt like the quiet type, the one who doesn't say much.
He didn't really socialize with the other employees," Wendy's evening manager Adrian Mendes said. "He just worked, got paid, and came in to get his check." A former classmate of the gunman said Ramos "would get severely bullied and made fun of a lot" and was taunted by others for the clothes he wore and his family's financial situation. "People would, like, actually call him school shooter and stuff like that," he said.
A classmate, who did not want to be identified by name, said he was somewhat "close" to Ramos. They sat together through high school and played Xbox together, he said. The suspect had stopped attending school regularly and they communicated less aside from occasional invites to play Xbox. Recently, the suspect sent the classmate a picture of an AR-15, a backpack with rounds of ammunition and several gun magazines, he added."I was like, 'Bro, why do you have this?' and he was like, 'Don't worry about it,'" the friend said. "
He proceeded to text me, 'I look very different now. You wouldn't recognize me.'" Stanley Torres, a senior at Uvalde High School, told CNN he shared a gym class with Ramos and described him as a "very quiet person who hung out by himself." Another Uvalde High senior told CNN she "knew people didn't like him. People would make fun of him or want to fight him," but she said she wasn't sure why. The suspect had no known mental health history, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said.
He made warnings on social media messages hours before the shooting, the gunman made a series of ominous messages on different social media sites. The Instagram account that was linked to Ramos posted a photo of two rifles lying on a carpet and also tagged another Instagram account by name in the photo. The owner of the tagged Instagram account wrote in a story posted after the shooting that the suspect had tagged her and messaged her out of the blue.
The girl, who did not include her name on her account and has since made her account private, posted screenshots of messages that she said she exchanged with the shooter in the days before the massacre. In one, Ramos wrote "I'm about to" -- but didn't say what he would do. "I got a little secret," he wrote in another message. "I wanna tell u." She responded she might take a nap soon but would respond if she was awake.
Before the massacre, messages were posted to her story before it went private, the girl said that she didn't live in Texas and didn't know Ramos." the only reason I responded to him was that I was afraid of him I wish I stayed awake to at least try to convince him to not commit his crime," she wrote. "I didn't know," Abbott said the gunman wrote about his intentions on Facebook. A spokesman for Meta, Facebook's parent company, said the gunman's private one-to-one messages were discovered after the shooting.
Abbott said that in the first of three messages, about 30 minutes before the school shooting, Ramos wrote, "I'm going to shoot my grandmother."Shortly after, he wrote, "I shot my grandmother."And finally: "I'm going to shoot an elementary school."He allegedly sent similarly chilling text messages to a girl he met online describing how he had just shot his grandmother and was going to shoot up an elementary school. The 15-year-old girl, who lives in Frankfurt, Germany, said she began chatting with Ramos on a social media app on May 9. She said she spoke daily on FaceTime with him and also communicated with him on other apps.
In their conversations, she said he asked about her life in Germany. "He looked happy and comfortable talking to me," the girl said. She said he told her he spent a lot of time alone at home. There were other text messages, however, that alarmed her. In one case, she said, he told her that he "threw dead cats at people's houses."She said she got the impression that he kept to himself." Every time I talked to him," she said, "he never had plans with his friends."

Salvador Ramos, a Latino trans, was the perpetrator of the Texas massacre. -
Washington Post - by Virginia Montes - 25 May 2022
Not a "white supremacist", the murderer of 19 children and two elementary school teachers, Salvador Ramos was a trans Latino, who took photos with the sodomite rainbow flag, dressed in a skirt and stockings. An issue that the system's media are hiding with exquisite occultism.
He was 18 years old and a former student at the same school in Uvalde, to which he returned with two rifles and, on target, children between 7 and 10 years old. Before him, he had shot his 66-year-old grandmother, who was admitted to a hospital with gunshot wounds, then went to his old school.
An excerpt of a dialogue that a young woman posted, minutes after learning of the Robb Elementary School massacre, has been published. The conversation began last Thursday, and they did not know each other.
Last Friday, Salvador shared a photo of two rifles with this girl. “What do your weapons have to do with me?” she asked, to which he responded with a cryptic, “I'm about to. I'll tell you before 11. There's a little secret I'd like to tell you.”
Santos Valdez Jr. has assured the Washington Post that he and Salvador were friends until "his behavior began to deteriorate." He assures that one day he appeared with his face full of cuts: “he told me that he had cut his face with knives over and over again for fun”.
Apparently, Salvador Ramos was a shy and timid boy who had been teased by his classmates because he stuttered.
IS THIS THE SAME PERSON?
Found the above info in the Latino newspaper Ramba Libre. Does not look like the same person although photos can be from different time periods.
He was apparently teased by his classmates, but that must have been a good many years ago, as he was now 18. He must have been teased by other people as well during his lifetime? So, why take it out on 10-year-olds?
Was it revenge or jealousy? Very strange.
"Sick Son Of A Bitch": Beto O'Rourke Crashes School Shooting Press Conference
ZeroHedge - BY TYLER DURDEN - WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2022 - 02:58 PM
Former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke crashed a press conference by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday, interrupting the event to push for gun control following the massacre of 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
"This was totally predictable" O'Rourke can be heard shouting, adding "The time to stop the next shooting is now, and you are doing nothing."
"This is on you," he exclaimed.
To which Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin shouted back: "You're out of line.. I can't believe you're a sick son of a bitch who would come to a deal like this to make a political issue."
The outburst comes after O'Rourke tweeted on Tuesday "Governor Abbott, if you have any decency, you will immediately withdraw from this weekend’s NRA convention and urge them to hold it anywhere but Texas."
Never let a good crisis go to waste...
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
