Sheriff's officials have announced that Kinzey is a chapter president for Devils Diciples, an internationally notorious outlaw biker gang whose original turf was the SoCal desert. Among the insane possessions found in an August 26 raid of his home, according to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin:
A pound of meth. Military body armor. Brass knuckles. A sniper rifle. An AP-9 pistol. Leather biker vests. Neo-nazi paraphernalia, including a "black flag with SS bolts."
He's kind of a dream prof, in a way: Kinesiology by day, "Sin City"-worthy adventures by bleary-eyed night. But a man can only hold two intensive jobs on opposite ends of the moral spectrum for so long, it seems. [Update: The Atlantic Wire notes that Kinzey often used his Twitter account to post excuses for being late to class, ranging from his dad's health issues to an "unexpected phone call."]
A couple Cal State San Bernardino students on RateMyProfessor.com noticed something was wrong as far back as April, halfway into the FBI's investigation:
A young woman who says she had Kinzey for undergrad classes Tweets that she's "surprised... but not THAT surprised."
