from Vigilant Citizen:
A disturbing scene in the 2014 movie Kingsman: The Secret Service features the hero killing an entire congregation inside a Baptist-style church in the Southern U.S. similar to the one in Texas.
On November 5th, Devin Kelley entered the First Baptist Church of a small town in Texas during the Sunday service, while wearing a skull mask and a ballistic vest. Armed with a Ruger AR-556 rifle and two handguns, Kelley fired into the crowd, killing 26 people, including several children.
Not unlike several mass shooters in the past, Devin Kelley had served in the military for some time, including a 12-month stint in confinement.
Kelley was once a member of the US Air Force, spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said. He served in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, starting in 2010.
Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for two counts of Article 128 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, assault on his spouse and assault on their child, Stefanek said. Kelley received a bad conduct discharge, confinement for 12 months and a reduction in rank, she said. The Air Force did not provide a date of the discharge.

Various accounts about Kelley are surfacing in mass media. Some news reports state that he was an “aggressive atheist” who often took to social media. His Linkedin profile states that he was an ex–Bible studies teacher, which is somewhat contradictory with shooting up a church. Both his family and his wife had strong ties to the church.
According to a profile on Indeed.com, Kelley’s wife was a “teacher for toddlers” at First Baptist of Sutherland Springs from June of 2009 to March of 2013. Her responsibilities included teaching the children about God, helping with “their life stones that are needed,” and being a “positive influence in their life,” the page stated.

New police reports state that Kelley had “issues” with his mother-in-law who usually attends the church, but she was not present that day.
So what truly motivated the shooter to kill? Could he have been programmed in the military to carry out this horrific mission? The public was certainly programmed to witness it.
Describing the horrific scene in Sutherland Springs, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt stated:
“He just walked down the center aisle, turned around and my understanding was shooting on his way back out. It’s unbelievable to see children, men and women, laying there. DefenSeless people.”
