Next On The Police State Agenda: Banning Mail, Forcing Amazon Drone Deliveries? Reader 03/20/2018 (Tue) 13:29:18 Id: 090897 [Preview] No. 7456

Following the fifth bombing in less than three weeks, Austin police - as well as federal agents with the FBI and ATF - are no closer to solving the mystery of who is sending these bombs, and why?

After initially entertaining the theory that the bombings could be racially motivated, a more racially diverse victim base in recent attacks has discounted this theory. In each bombing, the weapons have been loaded with nails and shrapnel. Domestic terrorism has also been discussed as a motive, according to the Associated Press.

As an aside, the AP also clarified that it was unable to confirm reports that one FedEx employee had been injured in Tuesday morning's blast.

While the first three bombings all occurred east of Interstate 35, a section of town that tends to be more heavily minority and less affluent, Sunday's was west of the highway. The differences in where the blasts have occurred, the lack of a motive and other unknowns make it harder to draw conclusions about a possible pattern, further unnerving a city on edge.

Fred Milanowski, an ATF agent who's working the case, said investigators have followed up on more than 500 leads. Police have asked anybody with surveillance cameras at nearby homes to come forward with their footage, hoping that one of the cameras might've captured something suspicious.

With students preparing to return to Austin following Spring Break, police are telling residents to be extra cautious.

Meanwhile, the PGA's Dell Technologies Match Play tournament is scheduled to begin in Austin on Wednesday, bringing dozens of the world's best golfers to the state capitol.

"I'm pretty sure the tour has enough security to keep things safe in here. But this is scary what's happening," said golfer Jhonattan Vegas, already in town.

But after five bombings in the span of five weeks, investigators have no solid leads.

That should be incredibly concerning to all residents of the Austin area.

As CBS points out, investigators are worried that whoever is behind these bombings has gone from "targeting a specific individual" to "I just want to kill someone."

"That’s concerning," said Clint McNear, a former Garland detective who now operates McNear Consulting.

The shift from a bomb triggered by motion to a tripwire shows sophistication, according to McNear.

"They’ve done it repeatedly without harming themselves, they’re displaying that they have some knowledge," said McNear.

Having built and transported at least four bombs, McNear believes it is likely not someone who is learning as they go.

"My mind was racing this morning. Is it a former oil-field worker that’s extremely familiar with explosive devices?" questioned McNear. "Is it a former military EOD? Former fire/police officer that’s got training in bombs?"

But while the investigation is ongoing, McNear warned the public not to panic.

"I would beg the public to not panic, to be prepared, not paranoid and if you see something, you have to report it," said McNear.

"I hope he inadvertently becomes a suicide bomber in his garage trying to build his next device because he certainly is a dangerous person," said McNear.

But considering their ostensible level of sophistication, this outcome seems unlikely.

The FBI told CBS that it's "more than possible" the blast is linked to the recent ones in Austin before law enforcement sources confirmed it.

.@CBSNews reports the FBI says it's "'more than possible"' that the package that exploded at a FedEx facility in Schertz, which was bound for Austin, is connected to the #AustinBombings

The explosion occurred at around 12:30 am Tuesday morning (local time). The bomb, which contained nails and shrapnel, wounded at least one woman, FBI Special Agent Michelle Lee told reporters.

Placing my bets right here and now: they want to destroy all fair online business competition and force people to buy everything on Amazon as a way to CONTROL what you can and cannot purchase. This is my conclusion. And Jeff Bezos can easily hire black ops to carry out these kind of sophisticated attacks too. He has billions after all.

Next we'll be hearing from the MSM "better ban mail, someone could send a bomb your way!" "The government trusts Amazon and their drones to safely deliver what you need, goyim! ... but you can only buy from Amazon goyim!"

Just watch!

Oh, as for the MSM, expect Wapo (owned by Bezos) to ignite the propaganda. If this is to happen I'm posting it here, remember you read it here first.
