BREAKING: Uvalde School Board Votes Unanimously To Fire Police Chief Pete Arredondo

The Uvalde school board voted unanimously on Wednesday night to immediately fire police chief Pete Arredondo over the disastrous response to the shooting at Robb Elementary earlier this year that resulted in the deaths of 19 children.

The disgraced police chief refused to attend the meeting because he was scared for his safety.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District had already recommended that Arredondo be fired.

“Chief Arredondo will not participate in his own illegal and unconstitutional public lynching and respectfully requests the Board immediately reinstate him, with all backpay and benefits and close the complaint as unfounded,” Arredondo’s attorney George Hyde, said in a statement.
