그의 증언 중에, 안부. 스티브 맥크로, 텍사스 공공안전국 국장, also acknowledged how social media — and the lure of instant worldwide notoriety — may have motivated 18-year-old Salvador Ramos to commit the act of mass violence at Robb Elementary School on May 24.

Out of all these interviews, how many times did they tell you he was the one they were worried about?” 텍사스 주 센. Paul Bettencourt, 공화당 원, asked McCraw.

Several times. We had one teacher who said she was always worried about him,” McCraw said. “He was the one student who scared her most. We discussed, as I mentioned earlier, last year he started dressing like a school shooter, started acting like a school shooter.

McCraw noted how the revelations from at least half a dozen individuals of Ramos’ concerning behavior happened after the shooting and were never reported to law enforcement beforehand.

He also said that through interviews, many residents observed seeing Ramos carrying a bag of dead cats. Despite what Bettencourt described as suchanimal abuse” 과 “abhorrent behavior,” there was no known record of it from either the school district or law enforcement before the shooting.

That’s a major failure,” Bettencourt said.

McCraw said Ramos, who has no prior criminal record, was unemployed at the time of the shooting but had previously worked on and off in the fast-food industry.

Ramos was shot and killed by a Border Patrol tactical team at the scene.

In a separate line of questioning, a lawmaker pointed to the dangers of social media.

You mentioned a couple of times notoriety — let me ask it this way regarding social media. It plays into human nature, men specifically, about wanting to leave their mark, wanting to be significant, wanting that purpose, wanting to be something. And that can be good or bad,” 주 센. Charles Perry, 공화당 원, said to McCraw.

Do you think the social media aspect of the platform — and it’s just been relevant up in the last 30 연령, 권리?” 그는 계속했다. “나는 60 — we had these individuals who weren’t treated right or felt like they were mistreated or had issues, but they didn’t have a platform.

Perry continued, “Do you think that the idea that this guy knew the minute he pulled the trigger that he just got notoriety on a worldwide basis that will live unfortunately into perpetuity?”

“물론,” McCraw interjected.

You think that plays into the psyche?” Perry asked.

Some of the statements he made would suggest exactly that,” McCraw concluded.

Throughout the hearing Tuesday, McCraw demonstrated how the door of one of the classrooms was unlocked, but Uvalde police officers waited in the hallway and never tried to open it. He also placed blame on Pete Arredondo, chief of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Department, who he said spared the lives of armed, trained officers over those of children.
