#TexasChurchShooting and Devin Patrick Kelley: What We Know

Sunday mornings. A time to reflect. A time to be with family in a place where Americans should feels safe to pray and worship.

This was not the case yesterday at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs just outside of San Antonio, Texas.

The shooter has since been identified as 26 year-old Devin Patrick Kelley.

Here is, so far, what we do know about him:

Kelley graduated from New Braunfels High School (which just over 30 miles away from Sutherland Springs) and he served in the US Air Force. He allegedly taught a Bible Study class at a nearby church in 2013. He lived outside of San Antonio, Texas. San Antonio is 35 miles from Sutherland Springs and showed off an AR-15 rifle on Facebook recently:

Kelley was also in The Air Force, serving in the capacity of “cargo, demand and supply and distribution”, was discharged for bad conduct and court- martialed in 2012. According to AP:

An Air Force official says the man identified by officials to The Associated Press as the gunman in the mass shooting at a Texas church was court-martialed in 2012 and discharged two years later.

Spokeswoman Ann Stefanek says Devin P. Kelley was court-martialed on one count of assault on his spouse and another count of assault on their child. He received a bad conduct discharge, 12 months’ confinement and a reduction in rank.-The Associated Press

Spokeswoman Ann Stefanek says Devin P. Kelley was court-martialed on one count of assault on his spouse and another count of assault on their child. He received a bad conduct discharge, 12 months’ confinement and a reduction in rank.

Kelley shot a five year-old boy four times, the pastor’s 14 year-old daughter was killed in the attack, as was a pregnant woman. All among the count of dead or injured. Kelley was also rumored to have gone into the church carrying an Antifa flag and telling the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution” before unloading on the congregation.

Civil rights and social action. Children. Human rights. Hmm. I guess he changed his tune after that court-martial in 2012? Such a teddy bear he was. What about the minorities you shot, Kelley? What about the innocent children you killed and injured mercilessly? And human rights? Was he for real? What happened to the rights of those lives he’s ended?

One group Kelley belonged to (according to his Facebook group)? “The Friendly atheist”. So friendly, he barged into a church with an AR-15. But, but…Kelley was an “advocate for social issues”. Kelley was just another warm-and-fuzzy “organizer” who opposed fascism but decided to open up on a church full of innocent Christians in a firing-squad fashion. More proof that Antifa and their minions want nothing more than to shut people with opposing views of their own down. But Kelley and his Human Rights/Antifa comrades-they’re against fascism. The irony of this all is so sad.

    Too many of these deviants live in our society. His firearm was procured clearly in violation of the law. Among the questions on the background check form: dishonorably discharged from military, and conviction of a domestic violence crime.

    Too bad he probably got some of his wishes fulfilled: record number of people killed at one scene, world wide headlines and notoriety of his evil deed.

    May the victims and their survivors find Comfort in the Arms of Angels…

      Despite what he thinks, though, it really won’t get him much of a leg up where he is right now. He’s a piker in Hell.

    Some of the “antifa” and SJW claims haven’t really been substantiated, it seems. Let’s dig a little deeper into some of this stuff.

    Having said that, it’s clear there’s some mental illness here.

    Also, we don’t know when he acquired his weapon. It’s possible he acquired it before his conviction. It might not have been illegal. (I’m open to arguments on either point; but I don’t think we have the answer, yet.)

      Good point. I plead “guilty” too in assuming this pile of human excrement obtained his weapon post-USAF discharge. Entirely possible he had it prior.

      Yeah, let’s let the facts drive the story, not the other way around.

      His worldview/mental state certainly did not plot a favorable life trajectory for this sorry excuse for a “man.”

      • Scott says:

        Latest reports are that he acquired the AR in 2016, after his conviction. He apparently had 4 firearms, to bough in Colorado, two in Texas, and as for the timing, he bough one each year, in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. That was per the Sheriff’s press briefing this morning
