DPS director says he won’t resign

Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw is fending off calls for his resignation in light of his department’s handling of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde last May, in which 19 students and two teachers died. However, McCraw said “every responding officer needs to be accountable for their actions,” according to the Austin American-Statesman. The Texas Rangers, an arm of the DPS, reportedly are investigating several troopers among the 90 who were on the scene. Sgt. Juan Maldonado was fired recently for his role in the shooting response.

Classroom smells

Every day in my high school homeroom smelled different. Not better, but different. At that moment, we teens were bound together by one goal. We wanted to smell better, and we wanted to smell stronger. This required experimentation.
