The former president of the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association said the law enforcement response to the Uvalde shooting was flawed.
A gunman killed 19 children and two teachers in the school shooting last month. Questions have surrounded the police response after it took more than 70 minutes for officers to end the standoff.
Patrick Mitchell, former WCPA president and West Allis Police Chief, said police understand the lives of officers rank lower than those of innocent civilians. In that situation, he said police must go in to help those who are wounded.
