Former U.S. police officer: There was some significant failure in the police response
The U.S. experienced over 600 mass shootings in 2022, including 46 on school grounds, according to CNN. Among them, the Robb Elementary School shooting was the deadliest in the United States since 1999 when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire and killed 19 children and two adults at the elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24, 2022.
CGTN Global Stringer spoke with Brian Higgins, a former SWAT team member who also served as chief of the Bergen County police and director of Public Safety for Bergen County, New Jersey. He said they must look more gradually into the training rather than doing things perfunctorily.
