    What kind of vermin mocks prayer and politicizes human tragedy after a dark-hearted creep who reportedly bought dogs online and used them for target practice walks into a church and kills 26 innocent people?Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, for one, and leftists at large. Just after the Sutherland Springs, Texas shooting, Warren tweeted: “Thoughts and prayers are not enough, GOP. We must end this violence. We must stop these tragedies. People are dying while you wait.”The Hollywood hypocrite crowd paused from sexually assaulting each other long enough to attack the faithful for their “thoughts and prayers.” Meanwhile, Democrats chimed...

    Jessika Edwards told CNN that she and Devin Kelley worked together at Hollomon Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 to 2012. Kelley was released from the military on a bad-conduct discharge in 2014 after serving time for assaulting his wife and stepson. Edwards said that when the two made contact on Facebook in 2014, Kelley said he had been purchasing dogs through Craigslist and then using them for “target practice.” While in the Air Force, she said, Kelley was preoccupied with mass murders and made jokes about killing people. ..." In 2014, the same year he allegedly made...

    The Pentagon has known for nearly twenty years about major reporting lapses to the FBI of criminals within the U.S. military, The Associated Press reports. The AP discovered a 1997 report that detailed massive fingerprint reporting lapses of military criminals with the U.S. Navy and the Navy failed to report 94 percent of cases. “The lack of reporting to the FBI criminal history files prevents civilian law enforcement agencies from having significant information on military offenders,” the report warned 20 years ago. Military criminal reporting to the FBI has come under renewed scrutiny after former U.S. Air Force enlisted criminal...

    Kelley first bought a Glock 9mm from Specialty Sports in December 2014 - the same year he got a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force, which should have precluded him from buying a gun.

    SUTHERLAND SPRINGS -- Just days before the killer opened fire killing 26 church goers he walked among them. Five days before he would gun dozens of people down, Devin Patrick Kelley showed up at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs with his children for an annual fall festival. His appearance was unexpected because of the past family troubles, but people who saw him there thought it was a sign he was turning a corner. "And they thought, 'oh this is good. This is progress,'" said Tambria Read, a longtime resident of Sutherland Springs who is good friends with Kelley's...

An Air Force jury handed him a 12-month sentence in 2012, he said. “He entered pleas of guilty to fracturing his son’s skull, his...
