    On Sunday, the U.S. Justice Department announced it was going to launch an investigation into the police response to the shooting at Robb Elementary School. Officers have faced criticism from parents, politicians and officials after reports they chose not to immediately storm the school and engage the active shooter who killed 21 people, including 19 children. The account of events from police and law enforcement has at times been contradictory and unclear, including initial reports that a gun battle took place outside the school and that the shooter wore body armor, both of which appear to be inaccurate. Border patrol, local Uvalde police and the county sheriff's department were all at the school shortly after the shooter arrived, but were ordered not to storm the classroom where he had barricaded himself. The delay in confronting the shooter — who was inside the school unimpeded for more than an hour — has become the center of the story. You can read today's podcast here.

Justin is the host of Politics + Media 101, he led the legislative and media efforts to address Hurricane Marie as an appointed official for the Democratic Government of Puerto Rico, he has worked as a legislative assistant in the U.S. House of Representatives, as a senior research analyst for the RNC where he compiled opposition research, and — as I'm sure will be of much interest to our listeners — has actually switched political parties over the last few years. In today's episode, we discuss the current state of Congress, whether members really read bills, how much time is spent fundraising, why he switched parties, what the future holds for Puerto Rico, and much more.
