This brave mom’s account raises a lot of questions about the law enforcement response at the scene of the school shooting.
Angeli Gomez, the mom from Uvalde, Texas who ran into Robb Elementary School to rescue her two sons was interviewed by CBS News and explained what happened that day.
Gomez, who is a farm worker, said that she was at the school earlier in the day for a graduation ceremony and went back to work. Her mother called her frantically saying that there was a shooting at the school, so she hopped in her car and sped to the scene.
When she arrived, she said that she saw a number of law enforcement officers holding parents back while gunshots could be heard coming from the school. She said that she couldn’t believe that they weren’t going into the building to rescue the children.
Many parents have expressed their frustration that police seemed more concerned about maintaining a perimeter than saving the lives of kids.
Gomez had initially been handcuffed by police but when they uncuffed her, she ran in and rescued her two sons — one in second and the other in third grade.
She also said that after she first spoke out, she received a call from law enforcement warning her to stop telling her story.

Whatever her history, politics, or whatever — this mom is a badass who acted when law enforcement was standing there navel-gazing. And she saved her kids.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
