Kerrville Man: Threat, Or Menace?

Jes' so y'all know: This reporter's immediate male ancestor grew up in Kerrville.
Gerald Tracy / WOAI:
Kerrville man arrested after officials intercept plans for mass shooting at Walmart  —  KERRVILLE, Texas - The FBI, Texas DPS and FBI have arrested a Kerrville man they say planned to carry out a shooting at a Walmart. 

Coleman Thomas Blevins, 28, popped up on the Kerr County Sheriff's Office radar last week and reached out to Blevins.[sic] According to the KCSO, it confirmed Blevins was planning a mass shooting after speaking with him.

In a message KCSO intercepted, Blevins allegedly threatened to shoot up a Walmart, which location was not released.

Blevins was arrested Friday on a Terroristic Threat warrant, then officials got to work on a search warrant at his home. 

There, deputies say they found firearms, ammo, electronic evidence, concentrated THC and “radical ideology paraphernalia,” which they said included books, flags and handwritten documents. 

We are told Blevins is on active felony probation, which means he is prohibited from having guns. He remains in jail.

“This case reminds us that we need to always be vigilant. Many think ‘that can’t happen here’, and it was well on the way to happening,” Sheriff Larry Leitha said. “Our investigators did outstanding work in this case, and possibly saved many lives. The plot interrupted in this case is unthinkable. We appreciate the assistance of all our law enforcement partners, including the FBI, DPS, KPD, and Secret Service. We’d like to remind the public - if you see something, say something. The KCSO, working with other law enforcement professionals, will continue to stop threats to our community, and bring those responsible to prosecution.”
Excuse the heck outta me, Kerr County Sheriff Larry, but does "outstanding work" apply here? One idiot mouths off on social media, a dime is dropped on him, & he then apparently breaks down & admits his (alleged) nefarious plans to shoot up the MALL⭐WART the minute a deputy asks? "Outstanding" hell, barely even sounds like work. And isn't Rule Fucking One of Nazi-Confederate-Saudi Club not to talk? How much of an actual threat is this guy?

At the risk a getting accused of being (((liberal))), strikes me this misguided young man needs, and long-term those of society at large, would be better served at an education camp, rather than a prison.
