They wouldn’t let us go outside without an armed officer last night because of him. When they finally arrested him, we were given the all clear.

My heart just sunk when I heard the news and reasoning for the escort.

I heard Lubbock P.D. scheduled a press conference for today at 3 p.m. so hopefully we will learn some more details. Should be video of this incident between the cameras at the station and possibly captured on the officer's body-cam. With drugs found in the room surely the officer did a pat-down? Maybe not...where did this firearm come from? Prayers for the officer's family and the perp's family in Seguin.

You can't legislate sanity.

Crazies along with 'the poor' will always be with us.

The discussion coming from a Texas Tech message board I frequent is that the TTPD do not frisk/search people nor do they put people in handcuffs, usually. They want to give the impression that the TTU campus is a safe, crime-free place.

If that is indeed the policy, I'm sure it will be changing.

I have read the same. If that's true, and it seems it is, that is simply asinine and it got an officer killed. :mad5

What's extra disgusting about this is that they don't give a rats rear about the LEO or the druggie, only being able to get a fast tweet out to condemn CC. They didn't bother to wait for info- they irresponsibly ASSUMED and jumped to conclusions based on what they wanted to be true... just like with so many other tragedies they try to exploit.

MORE

Lubbock PD had stopped the suspect earlier in reference to a stolen gun report. He did not allow a vehicle search, and the officers didn't believe they had probable cause.

Lots of questions remain.

For some reason the Texas Tech Police have clammed up about this. Earlier they gave a 4-minute press conference and took no questions.

Re: the pat-down or lack thereof: If an officer receives a call about a suicidal student with drugs and a gun...you get to the room and find drugs...and the student walks in..then yes, the officer has a right to make a pat-down for his own safety. The Courts are very clear on this.
However, we still do not know exactly what happened so hopefully more details will be forthcoming.

I read the link threoh8 provided, and while I know there are pieces missing, I am even more boggled that it seems TTPD did not thoroughly search this kid. It looks like they got two separate inputs that he might have a gun, one from his family and one via the stolen gun/matching vehicle route, and still...

Lubbock PD had stopped him earlier as suspect when gun was reported stolen, but didn’t have probable cause to search.
