“Let me tell you about Salvador,” says Jamie Arellano, who attended Uvalde High School with Ramos. “He would go to the park and try to pick on people and he loved hurting animals.”
The pattern of violence goes back as far as almost anyone can remember.
Arellano says that Ramos wasn’t bullied at all–the truth was that Ramos himself was the bully.
“He would try and call people names and start fights,” said Arellano. “I remember there was one time we saw him beating a little dog senseless.”
Students and parents had raised concerns before about the shooter’s behavior problems but there was very little that was done.
