Ruben Mata Montemayor lost his great-granddaughter Alexandria Rubio in the attack on Tuesday. He heard the shots ringing out from just down the street. A Vietnam veteran, Ruben has seen his fair share of death and violence. This isn’t his first rodeo with death. But today he is fighting back tears and trying to come to terms.
“They admitted that they just waited,” Mata Montemayor says. “How could they do that? Why did they do that?”…
“They stand there with their hardened looking faces and walk around town as if they are some kind of god,” says Uvalde resident Linda Leal. “Well, I guess you make pretty good actors.”
Leal has a son who is doing time in a Texas State operated jail for simply saying that he was going to throw a brick into the car window of his father-in-law. Now she wonders if her own son could be incarcerated for 18 months on charges of making a terroristic threat, why didn’t they go after the shooter?
