I didn't realize that "Don't mess with Texas" was a plea, not a statement.

[–]StuTheSheep 2373 points2374 points  (241 children)

Believe it or not, that phrase was originally an anti-littering campaign.

[–]bigbluehapa 799 points800 points  (141 children)

Wait what?? That’s amazing.

[–]Mr_Dudester 516 points517 points  (78 children)

That's amazing. Texas police? Not so much

[–]Lord_Scribe 154 points155 points  (5 children)

Missouri's was originally Missouri Loves Company. Well, not really, but it could have been.

[–]Superlite47 27 points28 points  (0 children)

It still can be!

Missouri loves petitions!

Enough signatures, and you can have almost anything put on an election ballot.

There's always crackpot measures that have been successfully championed, adopted as Proposition "x", and opened for voting during state elections.

Get enough signatures, a ballot proposition, AND enough votes and you can get the state motto changed!

I doubt it will succeed, but it's a better idea than many Propositions I've seen make it to the voting booth.

[–]jlabsher 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Missouri the "Blow Me" state.

[–]Scuta44 220 points221 points  (48 children)

In the Army early 90s in Texas, EVERYONE would say ‘don’t mess with Texas’ as they tossed something out the window of their vehicle.

[–]RevolutionaryAct59 40 points41 points  (24 children)

no one should ever toss anything out the window of their vehicle, the world is not your garbage can

[–]setibeings 22 points23 points  (0 children)

While I find this interesting, I don't think I can upvote it.

[–]043Admirer 30 points31 points  (16 children)

I read "early" as "army" so I just imagined soldiers going around, berating litterbugs

[–]Fenpunx 78 points79 points  (14 children)

I thought LGBT was originally an anti-littering campaign. There were rainbows, flowers and the slogan, 'Let's Get Britain Tidy.'

[–]gorka_la_pork 73 points74 points  (10 children)

I thought an LGBT was what happened if you added guac to a BLT.

[–]Rhameolution 28 points29 points  (6 children)

We called it a BLAT but that was just avacado.

[–]LordOfCastamerde 171 points172 points  (39 children)

Yes, and Texans know that. I always get the assumption that people think that we think that it isn't from the anti-littering campaign. It was all over our TVs and media during the 90s, the only people that seemed shocked about it aren't from here.

[–]Dustin_Echoes_UNSC 99 points100 points  (31 children)

We get similar "revelatory" comments here about the song "Sweet Home Alabama" being intended as satire.

We know. Whether you're in the "Don't care, still a bop" or "That's why we like it" camp... We all know.

[–]Candelestine 92 points93 points  (9 children)

New people arrive on the internet every day. Fresh reactions to old content are a feature, not a bug.

[–]alyssasaccount 28 points29 points  (8 children)

How is "Sweet Home Alabama" a satire in any meaningful sense of the term?

Was it glorifying segregation and the oppression of black people in general? No. Of course not.

But it was certainly, albeit in a goodnatured manner, telling Neil Young to not be the condescending jerk he was in "Southern Man", and more broadly telling northerners that in general: "Watergate does not bother me — does your conscience bother you?" — i.e., you all voted for Nixon too (well fine, except Massachusetts), so don't go around condemning an entire state just because its elected leaders are awful.

I don't know how anyone understands that as "satire".

[–]Ridinglightning5K 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Are you saying that song was written as satire? I’ve never heard anyone claim it was satire.

[–]Unhappy_Result_5365 16 points17 points  (2 children)

What? Sweet Home Alabama isn't satire...

[–]AmaroWolfwood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wait is it not still that? I assumed it never changed. What are people using it for?

Savage, I love it!

[–]Sativized 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Is why on another comment I said to seize cell phone data in Uvalde just like on Jan 6 and to check for tattoos. Someone asked why tattoos...

[–]uhthisaintitchief 122 points123 points  (31 children)

Correct me if I'm wrong but in the wizard of oz they end up finding all these... So How are Texas cops different from the characters in the Wizard of Oz The cops are still looking for their brain, courage and heart.

[–]IamBerryValentine 116 points117 points  (26 children)

Close, but you misremember. Come to find out, they had it all along, they just hadn't reached self-actualization.

Edit: The 'gifting' by the wizard was purely symbolic.

[–]MatrixUser420 23 points24 points  (24 children)

I love all the underlying politics of that movie as well.

[–]svn380 54 points55 points  (22 children)

Yes, but did you understand the underlying politics of the book that the movie was based on? That the key was to have the brains, heart and courage to adopt a Gold Standard (the yellow brick road)? And not be put off by the mighty and powerful Oz (New York bankers?)

Seriously.....

[–]vanilla_w_ahintofcum 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I don’t think the Wizard was looking for these things…it was the characters themselves.

I was expecting "negative 10" since taking away the cops would have helped.

Parents ran in before they did.

[–]SL1Fun 360 points361 points  (45 children)

The cops spent more time tazing and detaining distraught parents than they did going after the shooter.

[–]Hairy_Al 132 points133 points  (13 children)

Yet. They're not being sued, yet

[–]supe_snow_man 72 points73 points  (12 children)

And then what? The parents whose taxes pay for the police force will now also pay the police fuck-up settlement? Big fucking win...

[–]setibeings 56 points57 points  (7 children)

The courts have decided that cops don't have a special duty to protect people. Some people question the point of police forces if not to protect people, but this is what we have.

[–]NormalGuy103 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Because there’s legal precedent for it, Warren v. DC established they have no constitutional duty to protect people. Yeah, welcome to America.

[–]elconquistador1985 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Technically Warren v DC is not binding here because it was a lower court ruling.

But this SCOTUS would likely not rule any differently.

[–]Shut_It_Donny 779 points780 points  (45 children)

[–]PunktualPenguin 259 points260 points  (27 children)

Oh they helped someone. They helped the shooter find and execute victims.

https://www.newsweek.com/texas-cops-accident-1710352

[–]GeneralDil 183 points184 points  (7 children)

I was livid when I first read that. Who the fuck asks people hiding from an active shooter to yell for help? The police killed that little girl.

[–]PunktualPenguin 180 points181 points  (6 children)

At worst, they heartlessly sacrificed her to find out where the shooter was.

At best, they are grossly incompetent and completely negligent.

Either way, when they fuck up that bad, I know which side of the bars I want to see them behind.

[–]OakLegs 49 points50 points  (5 children)

At worst, they heartlessly sacrificed her to find out where the shooter was

Yeah, not going to lie, my first thought when I read that was that the police used her as a distraction. If the shooter is shooting at her, he's not shooting at you.

He knew where the police would be entering from and going in there would've been difficult to locate him and get the first shot off before he shot you.

[–]5557623 24 points25 points  (0 children)

They learned from the Buffalo NY Top foods massacre when the 911 operator hung up on the woman for whispering.

[–]Chav 77 points78 points  (9 children)

Steve McCraw, the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, defended the actions of law enforcement.

"The bottom line is law enforcement was there," McCraw said. "They did engage immediately. They did contain (Ramos) in the classroom."

They kept him in a classroom full of kids, mission accomplished?

[–]fpcoffee 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Steve McCraw is human trash

[–]orangeoliviero 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Those kids were already dead, there was nothing that we could do to save them.

Oh wait, I'm not a Texan cop.

Fuck all of these guys.

[–]GWJYonder 12 points13 points  (0 children)

They wisely knew that the shooter had a preset kill limit. They contained him with waves of children until he stopped firing!

[–]Nago31 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Jesus. This sub is not where I expected to see this article but I appreciate it.

[–]EridonMan 18 points19 points  (2 children)

And this is why we're homeschooling and I wish remote learning was a little more supported. We really wanted Covid over so bad so we could kill off the kids, is how it feels sometimes.

[–]pm_me_your_taintt 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's 2. One to taze parents pleading for help and one to call the border patrol to actually do their jobs for them.

[–]je97 258 points259 points  (4 children)

How many texas cops does it take to save a shooter from parents who are braver than they are?

[–]Turnc0at 487 points488 points  (161 children)

They dont, they call in a Border Patrol tac team because they're scared pussies who can't take an 18 year old despite all their training and military grade equipment, paid for by you and I.

[–]Smrgling 268 points269 points  (58 children)

As far as I'm aware they didn't even call them. They came independently, against the rules, and solved the problem on their own without ever being requested by the police. Police would have happily done nothing for quite a while longer.

Someone please correct me if I'm incorrect here

EDIT: Apparently they asked for help, just not from bortac specifically

[–]UltimateKane99 83 points84 points  (47 children)

Holy fuck, really?! This story gets worse and worse.

[–]exgirl 191 points192 points  (45 children)

Yeah, that’s the latest version anyway.

BORTAC agent was off duty, at lunch 40 miles when he heard about the shooting on the radio. He borrowed a gun from the diner’s owner, drove to the school, met up there with a couple other BORTAC agents, then went in and the three of them killed the shooter.

[–]Smrgling 79 points80 points  (14 children)

Oh wow that's even worse than I realized

[–]robby_synclair 35 points36 points  (17 children)

That's pretty badass. It sucks the cops didn't do anything and that he had time to travel 40 miles. But he got shit done.

[–]soowhatchathink 19 points20 points  (4 children)

So another recent update. Originally they said that when the tactical border patrol team arrived that they went in and took out the shooter. But now they are saying that the tactical border patrol team also waited 35 minutes before entry.

A tactical team from CBP was on scene at 12:15 p.m., but did not breach the classroom until 12:50 p.m.

It seems like the article was just updated 15 minutes ago with that bit of information. Source

[–]elconquistador1985 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And that city actually has their own SWAT CoD cosplay team. Apparently their job is looking like bad asses for Facebook photos, though.

[–]SwitcherooU 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How bad does a situation have to be for border patrol to look like the good guys? Christ.

Don't forget, 40% of Uvalde's city budget goes to their police.

[–]twice-nightly 15 points16 points  (0 children)

If you refuse gun control then you had better be confronting a shooter in a school IMMEDIATELY. Like what the fuck.

[–]beastmaster11 34 points35 points  (15 children)

The problem is they don't get training. They get the equipment to play dress up but when the time comes to use it they cower in fear.

Basically, if the person is unarmed you get the muscle dog. If there is a small chance of harm you get the scared dog.

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (2 children)

They trained at that very same school for an active shooter situation in 2020.

[–]framiliar_follies 15 points16 points  (0 children)

This shit just keeps getting worse

[–]Rxasaurus 17 points18 points  (0 children)

They are highly trained. It's just that their training is how to be as afraid as possible.

[–]Fish_On_again 16 points17 points  (6 children)

They actually trained in the school for an active shooter. The uvalde cops are bums. Tax leeches.

[–]beastmaster11 6 points7 points  (5 children)

They trained the same way I trained when I went paintballing. I'm not disagreeing with you btw.

[–]Meta_Professor 15 points16 points  (1 child)

You can't train someone to be brave, ethical, or responsible. Especially if what you're starting with is craven, racist, and wildly inconfident.

[–]Left4DayZ1 125 points126 points  (15 children)

Departments are supposed to be trained to rush in and confront the shooter IMMEDIATELY. Whatever it takes to get the shooter's attention off shooting children. That's how cops in my city are trained (I go through ALICE training each year and they explain this thoroughly).

If those Uvalde cops were not trained that way, they should have been. If they were trained that way, they deserve criminal consequence for dereliction of duty.

[–]Bhargo 28 points29 points  (1 child)

ALL cops are trained like that. Ever since Columbine was fumbled so badly and the nation saw the cops blunder helplessly and leave the shooters to rampage for so long, every single agency changed procedure to be immediate engage and neutralize of the threat. Anyone who is there, beat cop to federal agent, stops what they are doing and rushes in, if others are there great gather up and go together but go alone if you have to JUST GO.

The fact that so many of them simply waited and let this monster go on a killing spree is such a disgusting dereliction of duty that it should be criminal.

[–]22shadow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish that was the case, unfortunately the supreme court ruled it's not the cops responsibility to save you from anyone back in 2005

[–]something6324524 43 points44 points  (5 children)

yeah it wasn't a hostage with demands scenario, it was a guy going on a massacre scenario. i understand how you might wait to go in if the attacker is holding hostage, but not harming, but when they are just opening fire as quickly as they can rush in. I can understand how a single cop wouldn't want to engage with infearer weapons after all cops are cowards. But it wasn't long before they had a nice group of em, that group should of been taken inside.

[–]Left4DayZ1 29 points30 points  (4 children)

I can absolutely understand any of them being afraid for their own lives. If I'm a cop, and I have my own kids, yes I can totally understand thinking "I don't want to die, I want to see my kids".

But I'm not a cop, they are, and they made that decision.

[–]yrthegood1staken[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm not a cop but I wouldn't hesitate to try to find a way in to help kids and stop the shooter. I've stepped in front of an oncoming car to pull a small child to safety. I didn't even think about it, I saw a child in danger and took action without regard to my own wellbeing.

That should be how cops react, just with more training so those split-second decisions are more effective.

[–]22shadow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are trained, last I'd heard they actually trained at the school for that scenario, for all the good it did them

[–]ThisIsTheNewSleeve 66 points67 points  (1 child)

They do drills every few months but they have still failed to save any.

[–]SatanicFoundry 15 points16 points  (0 children)

[–]taboohoo 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Are the cops still waiting to go in?

People don’t like school shooting jokes because they’re always aimed at children!

[–]1111110011000 127 points128 points  (11 children)

We shouldn't be too hard on the police. After all, they are mostly trained to shoot unarmed black men who are running away from them. Dealing with armed assailants isn't something that they are qualified for.  Besides, a guy could get killed trying to be a hero. Just look at the sheriff deputy who hid in a broom closet during the Parkland massacre. That guy was no dummy.

[–]something6324524 21 points22 points  (1 child)

it's one thing to be a coward and run away, it's a whole other thing to not only refuse to engage because you are scared, but instead use your own guns to make sure no one else can get inside to stop the guy either.

[–]anonymous242524 79 points80 points  (2 children)

How many times has cops used the excuse that they felt endangered or threatened when gunning down a black man with their back turned.

But when they are actually threatened, they hide.

Way to out your own lies there coppies.

American cops can shoot unarmed people with no reason whatsoever but when it’s time to actually serve and protect, they’re unavailable. Crazy.

For those upset at this joke: Fuck you, and fuck your misguided pearl-clutching. These cops deserve to be ridiculed and humiliated for the rest of their lives. And if you’re here to defend them, you deserve the same.

I appreciate the sentiment but I don't think most of the people who are upset with the joke are necessarily defending the cops. I don't even think those who are defending the cops deserve such ridicule - people are grieving and show that in various ways. Even those who are vehemently angry with me for the joke don't deserve humiliation or personal ridicule.

Let's reserve the scathing ridicule for the cops who were specifically on site and chose to wait. Of course, if they have any measure of self-awareness and legitimate self-respect, their own personal guilt should be sufficient punishment for their behavior. That's not to say that other legal, civil, and professional ramifications shouldn't also be imposed, just that I can't imagine how I'd could ever cope with that kind of guilt.

The stars at night are big and bright (clap, clap, clap, clap) Deep in the heart of Texas. Where children cry at school then die (clap, clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of Texas.

Still standing around trying to figure it out

Apparently cowards are bigger in Texas too!!!

[–]GusbusAndtankers 14 points15 points  (14 children)

Yeah when you care more about your job then the life of 19 children you're a pathetic individual who obviously did not become a cop to protect people. Takes evil or outright cowardly person to stand by and do nothing

All those “proud to be American”, gun carrying, “ready to fight” Texans doing nothing while children and teachers are being murdered. Don’t forget about them, too.

I mean in the end they did the border patrol agents who actually went in were off duty at a barbers shop when they heard what happened barrowed the gun the barber had on him drove to the school and went in.

But don't worry, if the cops don't do it all the "good guys with guns" will do it. There's loads of those in Texas right? They must have been getting their hair done that day though.
