‘Take responsibility’: Experts push back on Arredondo’s response to his termination

Pete Arredondo, who was fired this week as Uvalde School District police chief after the flawed police response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, said Wednesday that he had been “forced into the role of the ‘fall guy'” despite taking “all reasonable actions” — but some law enforcement experts say his claims don’t stand up to scrutiny. The school board in Uvalde, Texas, voted unanimously Wednesday night to terminate its embattled police chief, a move that was met with approval from a community still demanding accountability more than three months after one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. “Chief Arredondo hopes at least those who are willing to listen, understand that he is, and has been … forced into the role of the ‘fall guy’ and ‘the sacrificial lamb,'” the statement said.
