Militia leader posed with Greg Abbott four days before feds found ammonium nitrate, weapons at hotel

Four days before federal authorities arrested him on federal weapons charges and found ammonium nitrate in his South Texas hotel room, border militia leader Kevin Lyndel "K.C." Massey chatted and posed for a photo with Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott at a campaign event in Brownsville.

The photo, taken at Brownsville restaurant Cobbleheads on Oct. 16, shows Massey wearing an "Abbott for Governor" sticker on his military fatigues and shaking hands with the smiling candidate.

Video footage captured by Fox 2 News in Brownsville also shows Massey taking photos of Abbott while wearing a GoPro camera on his head, which was later confiscated during the raid.

Massey posted another photo of himself and Abbott at the event on his Facebook profile since deleted, but snagged by ValleyCentral.com with the caption, "Trying to talk to Greg Abbott about the border problems. I gave him my number we will see if he calls."

1. Ammonium Nitrate is harmless, unless you know how to use it properly.

 

Unless he had the other required components to turn it into something dangerous, all they could charge him with is intent or Conspiracy.

3. Does he drive a vehicle? Did he have ammo? If so he could have turned into explosives easily.

Unless he had a bunch of plants in the room what else would he have used it for?

4. Agreed, his intent was likely to use it for explosives

 

but the Dolt probably had no clue on how to put it together to make it work as such.

2. I guess treason and death threats to humans are the

coin of the rehelm in Texass. And this guy wants to be the Governor. You just don't go around shooting at people with out consequences.

5. Not to Worry, Greg, IOKALAYAAR!

Not to worry, Greg. With the exception of a few centrist and liberal bloggers and columnists, you'll be given a free pass. This is Texas, after all, where giving the Republicans a free ride on just about everything has become a habit at the highest management levels.

Now had Wendy Davis or Leticia Van de Putte been found with someone who burned his draft card back in the 1960's, the denunciations and howls of outrage would reverberate through the state and national corporate lamestream media for at least the next decade.
