Why the hell wasn’t Devin Kelley, the Texas church shooter, in jail?
On Tuesday, WFAA reported that Kelley escaped from a mental institution in New Mexico in 2012, then threatened his superiors and attempted to smuggle guns onto base. According to their report:
El Paso police arrested Devin Kelley on June 7, 2012, at a Greyhound bus station a stone’s throw from the U.S.-Mexico border after he escaped the Peak Behavioral Health Services facility about 12 miles away in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, according to the police report…. Sunland Park officers told their Texas colleagues that Kelley “was a danger to himself and others as he had already been caught sneaking firearms” onto Holloman Air Force Base and that Kelley “was attempting to carry out death threats that [he] had made on his military chain of command,” the report states.
