As the darkness of early Monday morning gives way to the light, the NFL is momentarily put aside as people seek to learn more about the Texas church massacre.
The Twitter liberal anti-gun brigade are having a group jerk off over there. All of their worthless pixels are going to be for naught as President Trump has declared the issue of the day to be mental illness, not guns.
The Daily Mail is cooperating, digging up witnesses to relate stories about how weird the alleged church shooter was.
The Texas church shooter who mercilessly shot dead 26 people and injured 24 others was an ‘outcast’ who ‘preached his atheism’ online.
Former classmates say Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, who stormed First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas and opened fire on Sunday, was ‘creepy’, ‘crazy’ and ‘weird’.
Patrick Boyce, who attended New Braunfels High School with the killer, told DailyMail.com: ‘He had a kid or two, fairly normal, but kinda quiet and lately seemed depressed.
‘He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don’t know why.
‘I was just shocked [to hear the news]. Still haven’t quite processed how he could have done that.’
Nina Rose Nava, who went to school with the gunman, wrote on Facebook: ‘In (sic) in complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my fb cause I couldn’t stand his post.
‘He was always talking about how people who believe in God we’re stupid and trying to preach his atheism’
Christopher Leo Longoria replied: ‘I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic).’
Michael Goff added: ‘He was weird but never that damn weird, always posting his atheist sh** like Nina wrote, but damn he always posted pics of him and his baby – crazy.’
Nava added to DailyMail.com: ‘I went to school with him. We had a few conversations here and there. It’s not something I expected from him.
‘He was an outcast but not a loner. He was popular among other outcast. I haven’t spoke to him since high school.’
Another former classmate, who asked to remain anonymous, told DailyMail.com: ‘I grew up going to school with him… Always creeped me out and was different.’
Kelley of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, was shot by Stephen Willeford, 55, before he climbed in an SUV to flee the scene, a local resident told DailyMail.com.
Another local resident, Johnnie Langendorff, who had witnessed the confrontation refused to let the shooter get away. Both he and Willeford, a local plumber, jumped in his truck and gave chase.
Kelley was already dead when they found him, having succumb to blood loss from the gunshot wound he suffered at the church.
Cops discovered multiple weapons and possible explosives in his vehicle.
San Antonio police also raided Kelley’s home on Sunday evening, with K9 and bomb squad units.
Kelley, who was married, had recently posted a photo of an AR-15 style gun on his Facebook page with the caption: ‘She’s a bad b***h.’
A LinkedIn account which appears to be Kelley’s states that he joined the US Air Force after graduating New Braunfels High School in 2009.
An Air Force official said the gunman was court-martialed in 2012 and discharged two years later.
Spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said 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.
He was married to Danielle Shields, and they appear to have a child together. She was previously a teacher at the First Baptist Church.
Kelley lived at his parents’ home with his wife and child and neighbor Mark Moravitz told ABC News he would sometimes hear gunshots coming from near that house late at night.
The gunman’s mother-in-law, Michelle Shields, also appears to have been a parishioner at the church and was friends on social media with the pastor’s wife.
It is not clear whether they were at the church at the time of the shooting.
Local law enforcement say the gunman had a relatively clean criminal record, with just a traffic offenses in recent years.
A reminder. If this was a Deep State operation, the alleged gunman is truly the perfect patsy. A regular commenter, miletrader, reminded me of the role that that pharmaceuticals have often played in these mass murder events. So far, the MSM and law enforcement have remained silent on that issue.
