Uvalde: an obvious false flag, six ways to Sunday: Uvalde school shooting: Officer whose wife was shot was disarmed and 'escorted' away, Texas DPS chief says --The Texas DPS director accused Uvalde school police chief Pete Arredondo of placing 'the lives of officers before the lives of children' | 21 June 2022 | Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director Steven McCraw ripped into the Uvalde school police chief's handling of last month's shooting at Robb Elementary School and said that some officers wanted to approach the gunman earlier, including a school district police officer whose wife was killed in the massacre. That officer, Ruben Ruiz, received a call from his wife, Eva Mireles, who told him that she had been shot. "He tried to move forward into the hallway," McCraw said Tuesday at a Senate hearing. "He was detained and they took his gun away from him and escorted him off the scene." Mireles later died in an ambulance on the way to a hospital.
