Bishop Marvin Sapp is questioning why the recent Texas church shooting has been classified as a mental health issue.
On Sunday, a 26-year-old caucasian man named Devin Patrick Kelley, committed the deadliest church shooting in U.S. history. Kelley opened fire on First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where 26 congregants died and 20 more people were injured before he was shot by a local resident.
After President Donald Trump classified the incident as a mental health issue, Sapp, the gospel music artist and pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church, spoke out.
“Haven’t posted anything political in a very longtime however I’m wondering has anyone noticed this. When it was Sandy Hook, Mother Immanuel, Los Vegas, opioid crisis and now Sutherland Springs its a sickness,” Sapp wrote on Facebook. “I️ just wonder if his name was Muhammed, Gonzales Westside of Chicago youth or if it was crack would people have the same viewpoint ? #Pondering.”
On Tuesday, police reports surfaced about Kelley escaping a mental health facility where the former Air Force member was placed after attempting to sneak guns onto a base where he was “attempting to carry out death threats.” Kelley was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force and sent to a military prison for one year after assaulting his ex-wife and stepson.
