Texas Cowards With A Badge And Gun Who Stood By While 19 Students And 2 Robb Elementary School Teachers Were Massacred In Uvalde By A Lone 18-year-old Crazed Shooter

Poorly Trained And Prepared Cowards With A Badge And Gun

TX: Unfortunately, the Uvalde massacre on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at the Robb Elementary School in which 19 students, mostly Mexican-Americans between the ages of 8 to 11 and two teachers were murdered by a lone 18-year-old domestic shooter from Uvalde showed the nation how 40 heavily armed law enforcement officers including Uvalde police officers and the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) police stood around for at least 45 minutes before a brave U.S. Border Patrol agent took it upon himself along with three other Border Patrol tactical agents to storm into the sieged elementary school where a lone armed gunman with a AR-15 rifle was barricated in a classroom and finally take out Salvador Rolando Ramos, 18, the crazed shooter.

Although some of the law enforcement officers helped get some school children out by breaking windows, even their own children attending the school within the 45 minutes others just stood by.

Many parents who arrived at the scene pleaded with law enforcement to storm the school and save the children to no avial. Heavily armed law enforcement officers just stood around and did nothing for at least 45 minutes, but instead turned against the parents by handcuffing a mother, tackling a father to the ground and macing others simply because they were criticizing police for doing nothing while school children were being killed inside the school.

These 40 heavily armed law enforcement officers that stood around and did nothing while Mexican-American children were being killed inside two adjacent 4th grade classrooms will be forever be remembered as poorly trained and prepared "Cowards with a Badge and Gun", who failed to follow the already established domestic school shooting protocol, to immediately storm into the school to saves lives.

Deceased Robb Elementary School victims identified:

• Irma Garcia, 48, 4th Grade Teacher
• Eva Mireles, 44, 4th Grade Teacher

• Nevaeh Bravo, 10
• Jackie Cazares, 10
• Makenna Lee Elrod, 10

• Alexandria Aniyah Rubio, 10
• Layla Salazar, 10
• Jailah Nicole Silguero, 10
• Eliahana "Elijah" Cruz Torres, 10
• Rojelio Torres, 10

Three police officers and 17 other victims were also reported injured with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Update: On Friday, Steve McGraw, Chief of the Texas Department of Public Works confirmed that Pete Arredondo, the Chief of Police of the Consolidated Independent School District Police in Uvalde treated the school shooting crisis as a barricated incident rather than an active shooter situation. Arredondo made a mistaken decision to withhold heavily armed law enforcement officers from storming into the school to neutralize the active shooter, according to McGraw who seemed to throw Arredondo under the bus and making it seemed that the majority of those armed law enforcement officers were just following orders, but in reality, they lacked any common sense and instead cowardly remained silent and did not challenge Arredondo's decision not to storm the school and save children.

Arredondo was elected to the Uvalde City Council three weeks ago with 70% of the vote, according to news reports. He will be sworn-in to the Council on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

16-year-old DeWayne Widmer Jr. Offered Plea Agreement For Less Juvenile Detention For The November 2021 Vehicular Homicide Of Giovanni Florentino, 16, In The Southside Of Milwaukee

Widmer Jr., a juvenile driver who was identified in social media in November 2021 after he fled from a Southside vehicle crash scene that he caused leaving his two passengers Giovanni Florentino, 16, to die from his injuries and Sebastián Florentino, 13, critically injured is expected to accept a plea agreement for less time in juvenile detention and extended supervision.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

May 23, 2022

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Next month, according to relatives of a deceased 16-year-old victim alleged that DeWayne Widmer Jr., 16, is expected to enter a guilty plea on June 6th to a delinquency petition for 2nd-degree reckless homicide and 1st-degree reckless injury in juvenile court for the November 2021 fatal vehicular crash that left Giovanni Florentino, 16, aka, Chucho deceased at the crash site located in the 3600 block of W. Lincoln Ave. in the Southside of Milwaukee.

According to the alleged plea agreement, Widmer Jr.'s additional charges will only be read on the record, simply because under a juvenile court delinquency adjudication, a juvenile can do a limited detention sentence and must be released, if not waived into adult court. In this case, Widmer Jr. will be facing up to 5 years in detention and can be released under extended supervision after just serving 1 year and 6 months in detention with good behavior when he gets sentenced in June.

The Florentino and Jiménez family are holding protests at the juvenile detention center hoping to persuade the juvenile court to charge Widmer as an adult, but it seems that Widmer will take a guilty plea to do less time for the homicide of 16-year-old Giovanni.

Police reported that on, November 12, 2021, around 8:16p.m., a stolen SUV with four individuals inside including a driver (identified as Widmer Jr. in social media) who was driving recklessly at 90 mph in a 30 mph speed limit heading eastbound at the 3600 block of W. Lincoln Ave. lost control and crashed into a tree. The SUV split in half on impact with a tree and both Giovanni and his brother, Sebastián, who were the rear seat passengers, were ejected from the SUV on impact. Giovanni suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Sebastián suffered critical injuries and was hospitalized.

Police say that the SUV was reported stolen a day before the fatal crash and the driver of the stolen SUV and a front seat passenger who was the driver's cousin fled the crash scene leaving the Florentino brothers at the scene without rendering any aid.

Nely Jiménez, Giovanni's stepmother who is seeking justice for her stepson and her 13-year-old son Sebastián told Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA), that Widmer Jr.'s mother had picked up her son and his cousin after the fatal crash and helped them elude police until mid January when Widmer Jr. surrendered to police.

When Widmer Jr. was on the run for nearly several months, he posted videos and told his followers on social media that he didn't expect to get to much time in detention as a juvenile convicted of a crime, according to the Florentino family.

Widmer Jr.'s cousin was not charged in the fatal crash incident.

Last Friday morning, before Widmer's juvenile court hearing, the Florentino family and friends held an outdoor protest at the Milwaukee County Vel R. Phillips Juvenile Justice Center, 10201 W Watertown Plank Rd, seeking justice for Giovanni. They will also hold another protest to seek justice for Giovanni at the juvenile center on June 6.

Greenfield, Wisconsin - Greenfield police discovered a gruesome murder crime scene on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, when they went to a residence at the 4700 block of W. Maple Leaf Circle. When police entered the home for a welfare check, they found the decomposing body of Jamie Le Ward, 50, with stab wounds in her bedroom. 

Her husband, Braeden R. Ward, 48, was taken into custody for the alleged homicide after a brief standoff with police in Franklin on Wednesday. He was charged with 1st-degree intentional homicide and use of a dangerous weapon. If convicted, Braeden is facing life in prison without parole. He is being held on a $1,000,000 cash bail at the Milwaukee County jail.

According to police, an out-of-state relative had called police to conduct a welfare check on Jamie because information received by the family member indicated that she might be dead. 

Braeden confessed to police that he stabbed Jamie to death. That he also washed her decaying body daily to prevent the body from smelling during decomposition.

The criminal says that Braeden told police that on May 4, he stabbed Jamie in the neck while she was in the shower stall, she died four minutes later. He then stabbed her in the leg and stomach to help drain the blood. Apparently, Braeden confessed that he assisted Jamie in killing her because she wanted to end years of chronic pain and had asked him on May 3 to end her life.

Braeden had also confessed to Jamie's out-of-state relative living in South Dakota that he had killed Jamie who then called police and told them that her brother-in-law had killed Jamie and wanted police to do a welfare check on her.

In this case, Braeden knowing he would be charged for her murder didn't provide any evidence to police, to indicate Jamie actually wanted to die by her husband's hand.

In Wisconsin, it's illegal to assist anyone that results in death.

Jamie's identity was confirmed through dental records due to the two weeks state of decomposition of her body, according to police.

Milwaukee Black And Brown Patrons Profiled And Refused Dine-in Service At First To Celebrate Birthday, But Were Eventually Allowed To Dine At The Riverfront Pizzaria Bar & Grill

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Both Jarod Little, who is Black and Yussef Morales, who is of Puerto Rican descent posted on social media that on Saturday, May 14, 2022, they went to the Riverfront Pizzaria Bar & Grill with a party of about 15 people (3 females and the rest males) to celebrate Little's 37th Birthday, but the manager at the restaurant who happens to be Latino, at first refused to accommodate the group and told them that the restaurant was expecting other groups soon, which none arrived within the 45 minutes of waiting. Little noticed that a group of about 20 White people were just living the restaurant when he arrived and most of the place was empty. One of the restaurant staff members began to prepare tables for Little's party group, but the manager came over and stopped the restaurant worker from finishing grouping the tables together.

Little's party group was later seated to dine-in and still no one else was coming in to the restaurant. Two other invitees of Little's group arrived two hours later and the group didn't notice anyone else entering the restaurant since 7:00p.m. 

One thing for sure, Little and his group noticed that they were experiencing slow restaurant staff and food service while they were there. Little told Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) when contacted that the group intended to spent more then $1,000 at the restaurant for drinks and food on his birthday celebration, but the slow service and the manager's attitude towards them only resulted with at least $500 being spent by Little's birthday group. 

Little frequents the restaurant for lunch in many occasions, since he works close to it and several weeks ago he asked the owner of the restaurant, if it could accommodate Little's birthday group and the owner Arturo Napolos told him yes. But after the latest experience with the restaurant manager,  Little won't be going back soon  nor would he recommend the restaurant to anyone, in other words, the Riverfront Pizzaria Bar & Grill, 509 E. Erie Street gets a bad review with no stars.

Morales posted in his comment thread, "...it was bad. We got there and it was my guys bday and they looked at us, had some new guy say it was a 2 hour wait. After we argued they sat us down, no one came in for 30 min, they ask for drinks, they did not serve us a thing until we sat for an hour and I asked what was up. All servers just standing around serving everyone else. It was just a weird sucky feeling. We sat patiently and still got treated last. It was just a bad experience."

Milwaukee Cinco de Mayo Family Festival 2022 To Honor Ernesto Chacon, Jesús Salas, Marla O. Anderson, Roberto Hernández, Dante Navarro And The People Of Ukraine

Five members of the Latino higher education movement in the early 1970's to be honored at the Cinco de Mayo Family Festival 2022 including the people of Ukraine.

May 6, 2022

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Friday, organizers of the annual Cinco de Mayo Family Festival announced that this year, five Latino community higher education activists from the 1970's will be honored on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at the one-day event at the UMOS Corporate grounds, 2701 S. Chase Ave. with a plaque each including the people of Ukraine. Victor Huyke from El Conquistador Newspaper confirmed on Friday that El Conquistador and the United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS) will honor Ernesto Chacon, Jesús Salas, Marla O. Anderson, Roberto Hernández, Dante Navarro including the people of Ukraine with St. Michael's Ukrainian Church receiving a plaque for the people of Ukraine.

Chacon, Salas, Anderson, Hernández and Navarro were instrumental in the early 1970's along with more than 500 members of the Latino and non-Latino community in eliminating the discriminatory barrier that existed, which prevented Latinos from enrolling at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). On August 27, 1970, the Latino community including Chacon, Salas, Anderson, Hernández and Navarro took over Chapman Hall at UWM, when then Chancellor Johannes Martin "Joe" Klotsche cancelled a meeting with community activists in regards to allowing Latinos to enroll at UWM. At the time, there were at least 17 Latino students enrolled at UWM compared to 27,000 White students. Five Hispanic community leaders were arrested at Chapman Hall on August 27, 1970, they were Salas, Anderson, Navarro, Gregorio "Goyo" Rivera and José Luis Huerta-Sanchez, according to UWM police records.

"Discriminatory treatment was the norm," cited from Myraid Magazine UWM 1990.

The higher education movement at UWM led to the creation of the Spanish Speaking Outreach Institute (SSOI) and it was later renamed as the Roberto Hernández Center in 1996.

Chacon, Salas, Anderson, Hernández and Navarro including other activists continued to struggle for change in Milwaukee including Wisconsin, which led to migrants rights laws to be enforced, Latinos to be allowed to apply for Milwaukee police officer positions including Milwaukee firefighters, which in the late 1960's to early 1970's, there were no Latino police officers or firefighters due to a height requirement that excluded most Latinos. Also, the Latino community community fought for Bilingual education for Milwaukee Public Schools and job opportunities with the Miller Brewing Company including Allen Bradley. The Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) had no Latino employees, but our Latino community and its leadership struggled to influence change that the DMV began to hire Latino bilingual workers.

On August 15, 1970, UMOS organized a 9-day march from Milwaukee to Madison, which on August 24, 1970, the marchers including women arrived in Madison to demand for the abolishment of the trespass law, which prevented UMOS staff to meet with migrant families at farms and to created better housing for seasonal migrants at farms and canning companies they worked at.

The Cinco de Mayo celebration is in recognition of the 160th anniversary of the defeat of the French military in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 by Mexican pheasants including the Mexican military at the time.

Just in case you didn't know...The Mexicans had won a great victory that kept Napoleon III and French army from supplying the confederate rebels for another year, allowing the United States to build the greatest army the world had ever seen.

This grand army smashed the Confederates at Gettysburg just 14 months after the Battle of Puebla, essentially ending the Civil War and united the nation. It might be a historical stretch to credit the survival of the United States to those brave 4,000 Mexican pheasants and military who faced an army twice as large in 1862.

Manny Pérez, Former WI Secretary of DWD To Expose Former Governor Scott Walker (R) And Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch's (R) Failures In 2011 On The Earl Ingram Jr. Radio Talk Show

Pérez recently came forward to expose multiple failures by both Republicans, former Governor Walker and Lt. Kleefisch in Wisconsin while in their first term in office.

By H. Nelson Goodson 
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

Waukesha. Wisconsin - On Tuesday morning, May 3, 2022, Manuel "Manny" Pérez, former 2011 Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) will be speaking live during an interview with radio talk host Earl Ingram Jr. from the Earl Ingram Jr. Radio Talk Show on 540AM WAUK from 10:00a.m. to 11a.m.

Pérez currently resides in Florida, but recently came out to expose that in the early months of the former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) and former Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch's (R) first term in office failed to fix the anticipated failing and outdated UI System. Pérez confirmed that Walker and Kleefisch were informed by their administration staff that Pérez had requested support from Walker and Kleefisch to help get federal funding from the U.S. Department of Labor and former U.S. President Barack H. Obama administration to provide federal funding to help upgrade the failing UI System. Both Walker and Kleefisch ignored Pérez' request to allow the feds to fund the UI System upgrade.

Apparently, Walker and Kleefisch at the time didn't want Obama's administration federal funding aid to fix the UI System issues. https://bit.ly/3MCrtn8

Currently, Kleefisch is a candidate for Governor in Wisconsin and she came out public blaming current Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D) for the failing and outdated Unemployment Insurance System (UI) for unemployed working Wisconsinites. 

The Kleefisch for Governor campaign has denied that she knew anything about the failing and outdated UI System, but in a TV interview in 2011, Kleefisch admitted that she was aware of the failing and outdated UI that needed to be fix. Kleefisch nor her campaign has yet to release any information to explain how she knew about the major problematic UI issue that Pérez was trying to get fix.

On 9/27/2011, Kleefisch established that she knew about UI issues (https://youtu.be./tHWHPDBEXFc). What did she, Walker, Keith Gilkes, former Walker's Chief of Staff and Mike Huebsch, a former Walker's Cabinet member know at the time? What did they do to correct the UI System issues that Pérez brought up when he was Secretary of DWD in 2011? In 2011, there were about 1 million calls blocked, according to an audit from LRB.

Kleefisch also recently came out public and alleged that voter fraud actually occurred in Wisconsin that resulted in Presidential candidate Trump (R-MAGA) to lose Wisconsin and who was defeated by Joe Biden (D) in his reelection bid. Trump served one term. So far, there has not been any proof that voter fraud had occurred in Wisconsin, except a few Trump supporters getting busted for voting twice or voting for someone else in Wisconsin.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) learned that in 2011, Pérez, while at the DWD attempted to align Wisconsin with a strong innovative strategic workforce development plan with economic development, which at time according to Pérez lacked such a plan and was problematic as well. Pérez in an interview with WisBusiness dot com in April 2011 said, that the DWD under his leadership and the Commerce Department were working together to fix the problem by "advancing a formalized strategic planning process that starts… by identifying the core sector areas for each economic development region and each workforce development region." Pérez said, that economists will forecast short, medium and long-term labor demands for each region so that funding for training programs will mesh with the demands of industry.

"As a result, we'll increase the likelihood of alignment between training and skill development in supporting hot growth industries," he said, according to WisBusiness dot com.

However, Pérez confirmed to HNNUSA that in 2011, both Walker and Kleefisch knew about his attempt to align a strategic workforce development plan with economic development, but Walker and Kleefisch dropped Pérez' effort to accomplish the goal that would have benefited Wisconsinites in 2011 and beyond.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Sunday, May 1, 2022, immigrants, organizations, unions and allies gathered for the Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) annual May Day march and rally for comprehensive immigration reform at the 700 block of W. Historic Mitchell Street. 

Primitivo Torres, the lead march director for the last 16-years confirmed to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) that VDLF has logged on file at least 4K march and rally attendees on Sunday.

This year, it will be a 2-day march with rallies, on Sunday, May 1st in Milwaukee and on Monday, May 2nd in Madison, Wisconsin.

Also, this year will mark at least 16 years of struggling to succeed for an immigration reform bill to be approved by Congress.

In Wisconsin, at least $90M of combined taxes have been paid to the state by undocumented essential workers per year.

The march in Milwaukee began around 11:00a.m. and proceeded to the federal courthouse in downtown Milwaukee where U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R) has an office, which is closed on Sunday. Johnson has been opposed to approving a comprehensive immigration reform bill.

President Joe Biden (D), his administration including the Democrats in Congress have failed to deliver on their promise to introduce and approve a comprehensive immigration reform bill, if they were ejected.
