'Major failures' in Texas school massacre response: US justice dept


A damning Justice Department report cites "major failures" by Texas police who waited until 21 people had been killed by a mass shooter at a school before finally intervening. Nineteen young children and two teachers were killed when a teenage gunman went on a rampage at Robb Elementary School in May 2022 in America's worst school shooting in a decade. Police eventually shot and killed the gunman. SOUNDBITE
