The Federal Bureau of Investigation's joint terrorism task force has arrested Bryan's Dereon Kelly for sending bomb threats to Texas State University. His ex-girlfriend Brittany Henderson remains jailed in Hays County for the same crime.

Texas State University Police Capt. Daniel Benitez reinforced Thursday that the agency believes 19-year-old Henderson, also of Bryan, to be responsible for the San Marcos threat. An arrest affidavit prepared by the FBI task force, which was unsealed and obtained by The Eagle on Thursday, details Kelly emailing bomb threats to Texas State and Texas A&M University while logged into Henderson's email account. The threats were made on back-to-back days in October and displaced tens of thousands of students, faculty and staff.

    This is what comes from everyone having internet access wherever they go, and yet no self-control or ability to behave like adults. People who have nothing to do with their time and can't even spell a simple sentence correctly have no business being able to blast their most basic thoughts all over the planet on a whim.

    Sounds like the police should have enough to let the young lady go.

    And nothing in his rambling, grade school-level screed, puts his cellphone in the hands of some nefarious villain, attempting to frame him. In above story, he is shown to have admitted to having sole access to his phone, and having access to Ms. Henderson's e-mail account. So that theory is removed.

    So now what? Someone he became acquainted with, spoofed his phone number, Verizon IP address, and stole his ex-girlfriend's e-mail login information to frame him? I'd be surprised if anyone he knew understood the meaning of any of those words, much less, how to implement them.

    His mother's attempt at painting a conspiracy of unseen, or at least unnamed, actors getting him kicked out of school, or at least from sports, seem to have morphed into a mere mistake, by a coach somehow 'hearing' it was someone with his common last name, and sanctioning him without investigating.

    His jailhouse accusation of being "Racially profiled 'railroaded' ... by the Small town Judicial System of Brazos county" is pitifully desperate, given that the e-mail and IP addresses that led police to him, aren't in themselves race-identifiable, and amusing, given his inarticulate missive.

    Compare the violin music from Kelly's mоmma, in a KRHD story, to the reporting in The Eagle last week:

    "Kelly's mоther and siblings say someone is setting both him and Henderson up. The family mentioned the fact that both Kelly and Henderson dropped out of school because of break-ins in their dorm rooms. The family also says they both felt harassed at their schools."

    From The Eagle's story 'Additional details revealed in Texas A&M bomb threat arrest':

    "Head football coach Richard Wilson said Kelley played various backup roles on the team and that he didn't remember any off-the-field issues. Track coach Cedric Vaughn said Kelley never made it through a full track season at Arkansas Baptist because of issues with grades and suspensions.
Vaughn said Kelley was partially ineligible in the 2011 season because of poor grades and was suspended indefinitely from the team in 2012, which contributed to Kelley leaving the college. Kelley was suspended for stealing a laptop and an iPhone..."

    I suppose that villains had sabotaged Kelly's grades and absconded with the laptop and iPhone, leaving Kelly to be blamed, in Arkansas, whilst also driving Henderson to withdraw from a school in Texas? The criminal allegations, and the comical claims of innocence, and being framed and railroaded, suggest the Dunning-Krueger effect is at work here, and the interview of the mоther suggests that it is hereditary. Al Gore, er, uh, ahem (cough/sarcasm/cough), Tim Berners-Lee, Robert Cailliau (inventors of www & http), and V. A. Shiva Ayyadurai (inventor of e-mail), would be facepalming at this shameful imbecility.
