An Uvalde mom who was handcuffed by police for trying to rush into the Robb Elemembtary School to save her two kids says from the deadly shooting said police have threatened her with a probabtion violation for obstruction of justice if she continued speaking with the media condeming the officer’s late response.

Angeli Rose Gomez, who has two children in second and third grade at the school, is among the most vocal of critics against the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) Police Department, who handcuffed her and held other parents back when they tried entering the school during the shooting to try and save their kids. 

After sharing her story with news outlets, Gomez claimed she recieved a call from law enforcement warning her that if she keeps speaking to the media, she might face legal troubles for a probabtion that she has from charges filed more than a decade ago, CBS reported. 

Despite the warning, Gomez said she was encouraged to continue sharing her story by the judge overseeing her probation, who reportedly told the mom that her bravery would be rewarded and assured her that her probabtion would not be affected.

It comes as CISD Police Chief Pete Arredondo continues to face backlash for failing to send in a tactial team fast enough to end the 18-year-old gunman, Salvador Rolando Ramos, rampage that killed 19 students and their two teachers. 

Gomez has criticized the police’s slow response and thier action in handcuffing her and restraining other parents who tried to rush into the school to rescue the kids as they grew frustrated over the inaction. 

‘I told one of the officers, I don’t need you to protect me,’ Gomez said of the cops who kept her back, saying it was for her own safety. 

‘Get away from me. I don’t need your protection. If anything, I need you to go in there with me and protect my kids.’
