Two teachers and 19 children were killed this week at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas. It was the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012. President Joe Biden said in an address, “I had hoped when I became president I would not have to do this again. Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen?” The nation has mourned the victims of the attack. One of the most public celebrities who paid their respects was Meghan Markle, who flew to Uvalde and dropped off snacks for donors at a blood drive in town.
President Biden also signed an executive order on policing on the two year anniversary of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis ex-policeman Derek Chauvin. Among other things, it directs federal law enforcement to revise their use-of-force policies.
