There are growing questions about the police response to the Uvalde school shooting as CNN obtains a video capturing an apparent dispatch radio call of a child at Robb Elementary saying “I got shot”. That, as police initially give misleading information about a teacher leaving a door propped open that was supposed to be locked, later correcting that she closed the door once she realized a shooter was on campus, but it didn't lock. Brian Higgins is a former New Jersey Police Chief. He joins Don to discuss the police response timeline to the Uvalde massacre and the Uvalde School District Police Chief’s refusal to answer follow-up questions.

Plus, 15 mass shootings are reported over the Memorial Holiday weekend, there’s a major defeat for the investigation of the Trump-Russia probe, AR-15 rifles come under renewed scrutiny in the wake of the Buffalo and Uvalde shootings, and the CDC encourages seniors to get a second Covid booster shot.
