Mother of Uvalde shooter gets into screaming match with victim’s family: ‘You have no right to judge my son!’

Raw emotion appears to have consumed the tiny Texas town of Uvalde, as evidenced by a screaming match in the middle of a road, between the grieving family of one of the 19 children and two teachers slaughtered by Salvador Ramos and Ramos’ mother, the also-grieving Adriana Martinez.

Following a Tuesday night meeting in the town for students, Martinez was chased down in an SUV by the family of slain student Amerie Jo Garza as she walked down the road, and Telemundo caught the entire scene on camera, according to The New York Post, which translated the report from Spanish into English.

“You have no right to judge my son,” Martinez shouts. “No, you don’t! No, you don’t. May God forgive y’all.”

Martinez can be seen calling 911 as Garza family members exit their vehicle.

“You’re the last person to judge me,” she said.

Not so, said Dana Mendiola, the grandmother of Amerie.

“She’s not innocent,” Mendiola told Telemundo. “She raised him like that. She knew how he was. She knew he had guns. She’s not innocent.”

Mendiola and an unidentified woman can be seen following Martinez. The child’s family member asks, “Why didn’t you call 911?”

“I didn’t know,” Martinez insists, before breaking down.

“I know my son was a coward!” she exclaims. “You don’t think I don’t know that? I know! You don’t think I’m carrying all that with me? You don’t think I don’t know? I know.”

Soon after, law enforcement appeared on the scene and, at her own request, Martinez was placed in a patrol car.

“God bless them,” she said in Spanish.

In the wake of the unimaginable horrors at Robb Elementary School, many forget that Martinez is also the grieving survivor of one of her now-dead son’s would-be victims. As BizPac Review reported previously, prior to opening fire in the fourth-grade classroom, Ramos shot his grandmother, 66, with whom he had been staying, in the face.

The argument was allegedly sparked over a phone bill.

Miraculously, Celia Gonzalez survived the bullet, which entered through her cheek and exited just below her ear, and was able to call 911.

Meanwhile, her 18-year-old grandson took off in the family truck, which he soon crashed into a ditch.

It was then that he entered the grade school through an unlocked door.

Since the massacre, the town of Uvalde —  along with the rest of the nation — has been repeatedly shocked by the inexplicable incompetence of the Uvalde Police Department.

Most recently, bodycam footage from inside the school shows armed officers standing around for more than an hour as Ramos is barricaded inside the classroom with students. As American Wire reported, Police Chief Pete Arredondo even attempted to negotiate with the murderous teen, even as shots continued to ring out.

“This could be peaceful,” Arredondo said, politely adding, “please put your firearm down.”


In a 77-page report released by the Texas House of Representatives, blame was assigned not to Ramos’s mother, but to the state and federal police.

“The void of leadership could have contributed to the loss of life as injured victims waited over an hour for help, and the attacker continued to sporadically fire his weapon,” the report reads. “There was an overall lackadaisical approach by law enforcement at the scene.”

“For many, that was because they were given and relied upon inaccurate information,” the report found. “For others, they had enough information to know better.”
