Mark Conditt, the suspect in the Austin Texas Bombing Spree, blew himself up yesterday as the cops closed in.
Manley said there appeared to be no specific reasons why Conditt targeted the people who were killed or injured in the attacks. The recording, which officials won’t release while the investigation is underway, does not clearly illustrate a motive for the bombings or explain how he chose his victims.
“He does not at all mention anything about terrorism nor does he mention anything about hate,” Manley said, “but instead, it is the outcry of a very challenged young man, talking about challenges in his personal life that led him to this point.”
Berg’s 18th Law is still in effect, of course.
But if I had to hazard a guess?
- He’s in Austin
- He’s 24
- He’s smart enough to build a couple different types of bomb
- He’s depraved enough to use all that intelligence to kill random innocent people
- He left a rambling video explaining what he did
If I had to guess, he’s a Bernie Bro.
The longer the Austin cops hang on to the video, the more sure of that I”ll be.
