Police accounts kept changing on Uvalde. A girl's rape story was called a lie. We reported truth.


The truth is hard to endure: A gunman slaughters 19 children and two teachers inside an elementary school classroom. Law enforcement officers stand in the hallway, but don’t go in to confront him. 

The truth is hard to absorb: A 10-year-old girl is pregnant after being raped. Because she lives in Ohio, where abortions are heavily restricted, she travels to an Indiana doctor to have an abortion.

Our job is to report the truth.

Three of our local newsrooms, all part of the USA TODAY Network, took on the hard truth this week. 

A Texas school shooting; a video difficult to watch

On Tuesday, the Austin American-Statesman obtained and published video of the law enforcement response to the Uvalde school shooting, both the full video and an edited four-minute version.
