If what people do is any reflection of who they are, then Devin P. Kelley,

who slaughtered 26 churchgoers on Sunday in Texas, surely was a madman.

 

 

Before the atrocity, he had attempted to sneak weapons onto an Air Force

base after making death threats to his superiors, according to a local

police report. In 2012, he had escaped from a mental hospital in New Mexico

to which he had been sent after assaulting his wife and fracturing his

stepson's skull.
