Who is Ruben Ruiz?
Ruben Ruiz, the husband of murdered teacher Eva Mireles, has been identified as the Uvalde police officer who drew criticism after a video showed him checking his phone as the Robb Elementary School massacre was taking place and using a “Punisher” background.
In a horrifying recently revealed video, police officers were seen pausing in responding to the shooting while Salvador Ramos mercilessly murdered 19 children and two teachers, including Ruiz’s wife.
Police waited for more than an hour before ultimately stopping Ramos, according to the 77-minute footage. Texas Representative Joe Moody expressed his displeasure at the “maligning” of a guy who “has lost everything” in a string of tweets in which he emphasized that Ruiz is Mireles’ spouse.
Ruiz received internet teasing for looking at his phone as a shooting took place in front of him. Before gunfire was heard, which caused other police to flee, the in-question footage showed Ruiz checking his phone while walking down the hallway. Ruiz looked terrified and checked his phone once more before putting it back in his pocket.
