Church Shooter Had Escaped Mental Health Facility In 2012…After Planning To Massacre His Air Base

Let’s start off by reminding everyone that Trump was right again.  Devin Patrick Kelley, the deceased gunman that took the lives of over two dozen innocent, God-fearing Americans was a mental health patient that was locked away because he was attempting to carry out death threats against the high command of the armed forces.

In other words, this is a mental health problem. It isn’t a gun problem.  No amount of hand-wringing, cajoling, or needless fear-mongering will change the circumstances of this case, so you can tell the nearest liberal to put down their gun grabbing pitchforks.

The BBC Reports:

The gunman who killed 26 churchgoers in Texas escaped a mental health clinic in 2012, according to a police report. El Paso officers who detained Devin Kelley five years ago were told he was “a danger to himself and others”. Kelley had been sent to the hospital after he was court-martialled for assaulting his ex-wife and stepson during a stint in the US Air Force. He was “attempting to carry out death threats” against “his military chain of command”, the report states.

Officials say the assault charge should have legally barred him from owning guns. El Paso police arrested Kelley at a bus terminal in downtown El Paso in June 2012, according to a police report first reported by KPRC in Houston.

So, let’s recap.  A mentally deranged, wife-beating, murder-plotting scumbag that wanted to kill his commanding officers gets locked up in a mental health facility, escapes the facility and is still able to buy a gun because the Air Force dropped the ball and failed to report him to the proper authorities.

Well, that sure paints a picture. 

Is there anything else we should know about the Sutherland shooter?

You bet there is. Kelley was attempting to smuggle weapons onto the base where he was stationed–in other words, he was hoping to massacre his fellow airmen.

This is the man that was merely discharged for bad conduct! Why is it that we can’t seem to put people like Chelsea Manning and Bowe Bergdahl away where they belong?
