The Washington Examiner reports that White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sidestepped a question Thursday about whether there would be an investigation into the (lack of) response of law enforcement to the Robb Elementary School shooting. But Jean-Pierre reiterated President Joe Biden’s “utmost respect” for law enforcement officers and said they don’t want to “prejudge” anything.
The White House refused to call for an investigation into the police response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, saying President @JoeBiden "has the utmost respect for the men and women of law enforcement."

Some are noting on Twitter that one of the reasons gun-grabbers latch onto shootings like this one is to get control of the narrative before inconvenient facts leak out.
Haistin Willis reports:
The White House refused to call for an investigation into the police response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, saying President Joe Biden “has the utmost respect for the men and women of law enforcement.”
Police have been criticized for their slow response to the massacre, with parents reportedly attempting to enter the school themselves before a Border Patrol team finally rushed in.
“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.”
It’s a very good idea to look back and try to find any lessons we can learn. Look at how quickly CNN rolled out Sheriff Scott Israel as a hero after the Parkland school shooting. They had a town hall set up within a week, before we learned that law enforcement were hiding behind their cars.
GTFO. The “utmost respect”for the men he falsely accused of whipping his illegal immigrant horde. https://t.co/5f9tcxOkdR

Under that standard there would have been no examination of how George Floyd died.

Like they're just TRYING to make people despise them at this point. It's like some sort of weird, collective kink.

The same law enforcement that put a mother in handcuffs vs actually stop the gun man?
A mother who heard about the shooting, DROVE 40 MINUTES TO THE SCHOOL, detained by the cops, released, AND broke into the school to rescue her children before the cops actually did anything?!

The White House has the “utmost respect for the men and women of law enforcement” who tased and handcuffed distraught parents for an hour while a mass murderer killed their kids?

That’s some failed leadership if I’ve ever seen it

Biden was also VP, and still apparently lucid, when Obama said the Cambridge police acted stupidly which then blew up in his face. Maybe he remembers? 🤷🏻♂️
