White House sidesteps question about police response to Texas school shooting

“I know that right now, authorities are working to piece together more details of what happened in Uvalde, so we won’t prejudge the result from here at this time,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answered a reporter. “It is always a good idea to look back and try to find any lessons we can learn, especially from tragedies like this, so that we can prevent them moving forward, including the law enforcement response.”…

In sidestepping the question of whether the Biden administration would call for an investigation into the police response, Jean-Pierre stressed Biden’s support for law enforcement.

“The president has the utmost respect, as you all know, for the men and women of law enforcement,” she said. “Just days ago, he honored the memory of the former police officer Aaron Salter in Buffalo, who was killed bravely while trying to stop the shooter at the supermarket.”
