Uvalde Parent Says He Was Arrested For Saying 'F**k' At County Meeting [View all]


“I was literally arrested for saying ‘f**k’ in a commissioner’s court because Mariano Pargas wants to sit there and act like he did nothing wrong when he knew that there were eight to nine kids that were still alive in a classroom and he walked the fuck away,” Cross said in his video, .


In Cross’ TikTok video, he shared footage from the meeting, which shows him questioning why Pargas had been absent from recent county commissioner’s meetings. When Judge William Mitchell warns Cross to watch his language, Cross yells, “Language, language, language. My child is fucking dead. Dead. And you have the balls and the gall to stand up here.”


CNN reported in November 2022 that on the day of the shooting, Pargas was told at 12:16 p.m. that there were eight to nine children still alive inside a classroom where students had been shot and killed but failed to act in a timely manner.

Based on CNN’s analysis of bodycam and surveillance footage, he walked to the hallway at 12:17 p.m. and mentioned injured victims to a Border Patrol officer, but did not mention that there were children who were still alive when speaking a minute later to a Texas Ranger. Pargas was then seen walking away from the school and did not enter the hallway near the classroom for 30 minutes.

Is there something in the water? What is it that disproportionately produces authoritarian assholes with a Napoleon complex in Texas? Pargas is scum and the judge is a dainty little snowflake. Even if the judge is neutrally insisting on decorum and respect for the officials involved, maybe they should show a bit of compassion while acknowledging how badly law enforcement screwed up and be worthy of that decorum/respect. To hell with the pigs and their sympathizers.

Parents from Sandyhook, Robb Elementary, and similar sites should have the right to say f*ck just about any time they feel the need.
