Court Documents Reveal Fort Carson Employee's Threatening Texts

Federal charges have been filed against a former civilian employee at Fort Carson. The FBI started looking into the case after the suspect allegedly bragged about being a domestic terrorist.

The former butcher at Fort Carson's commissary store is charged with making terroristic threats. FBI agents with the Southern Colorado Joint Terrorism Taskforce started investigating after getting complaints from both Fort carson and the Air Force Academy about Douglas Kunz.

"It's almost time for Ft Columbine," part of a Facebook post allegedly made by Kunz. According to federal court papers, he was apparently unhappy that his request to be transferred to a base in New Mexico was not being acted upon.

Kunz's supervisor told a military police investigator some of his Facebook posts made employees fear for their lives. A fellow employee even tried to tell Kunz he should be more careful about what he chooses to share on social media.

"I am evil in every way," was allegedly Kunz's reply in a text message. "Why do you think I have 32 restraining orders on me? I respect no lives or people."

Kunz also referenced the Fort Hood shooting, and the Oklahoma City Bombing, allegedly saying, "Timothy mc veah (sic) will look like a rookie by the time I'm done with everybody. I did nothing wrong."

The Air Force Academy complaint was made after a librarian found pictures of dismembered female on a computer. Security officers believe Kunz had transferred the images from his cell phone.

Kunz was barred from Fort Carson on March 31st. He told investigators he never intended to hurt anyone, saying his Facebook rants were just an outlet for stress. He apologized to co-workers and said he doesn't own a gun.

Kunz also sent texts that said he was giving away his belongs in preparation for "the end." His trial date has been set for August 18th.
