    TX - Austin Package Bombs #2

    Rather than bring over old threads and because this story is being updated minute by minute I'm going to post links to the latest bombings to start the thread. FBI is saying the latest bombing not connected?

    LE is saying the latest bombing not connected?

    CNN

    One person was injured at a site where an incendiary device was found Tuesday night in Austin, Texas, but the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said no package bomb was involved and the agency doesn't think the incident is related to the string of package bombs that has hit Austin four times and San Antonio once.

    Washington Post

    SCHERTZ, Tex. ó The latest in a wave of bombings rattling Central Texas brought a widening investigation to this city outside San Antonio on Tuesday, after an explosion at a FedEx facility signaled that whoever was responsible for the attacks had offered police potentially critical new clues while again shifting tactics.


    FOX NEWS

    At least one man was injured Tuesday night after coming into contact with a package containing an incendiary device at a Goodwill store in Austin, Texas, but police and the FBI said it was not believed to be linked to the string of package bombs that have killed two people over the past month.
    Remember you can state your opinion as to what the motive may be but do not start a political discussion. Anyone who starts to talk politics will be timed out or banned.

    For CARIIS:

    I think overall this is less complicated than a bomb. For instance a molotov cocktail is an incendiary device.

    Bombs can be either explosive or incendiary devices, or a combination of the two. An explosive device employs either a liquid, a powder, or a solid explosive material; an incendiary device is flammable and is intended to start a fire.

    The key is often reading/listening clearly to the details with logic and not emotion.

    I'm not yet buying that this latest incident isn't connected. We'll see.

    It would depend on the type. An incendiary device inside of a package would need some sort of explosive charge to ignite it, so you would need knowledge of both.

    So how many bombs were actually dropped off at the FedEx? Was it one or two?

    Same. I'm eager to hear what they say at the press conference.

    "Our bleary-eyed, ear-ringing week of seemingly non-stop live music in Austin, Texas has ended and we're back one last time to reflect on the 2018 South by Southwest festival and play some of our favorite discoveries."

    I read this article and this jumped out at me.....Our bleary-eyed, ear-ringing week of seemingly non-stop live music in Austin.....

    I don't know about anyone else but if I lived near "nonstop live music" I would go berzerk...not to the extent of this bomber but I would not be happy. Especially if I've lived here a long time and watched this happen all around me, had no control and couldn't afford to move away from the noise. All the growth happening in Austin is not always welcomed. Some people can't even afford their neighborhood any longer. Add that to a festival and the 250,000 people who attend SXSW and you could have a trigger. I realize the bombings started before SXSW, but I would imagine a lot of people come in early to set up.

    Now with that being said, we may think he would have targeted the festival. So maybe he is trying to make Austin seem unsafe. So people won't keep moving in.

    The way that these bombs are placed all over Austin make it seem that the city of Austin is the target or the city's reputation.

    Just a theory.....

    It could be something as simple as a drain-o bond a kid made, so maybe that's why they are saying not related.
    moo
    OR dry ice bomb.
    Both are considered incendiary devices.

    So far they have talked about 2 - one exploded at the Schertz facility, the other (unexploded) was located at the Austin facility by the airport.

    I think it was a media creation they have all been horrid worst coverage I have ever seen of such a major story

    earlier today on one you can tell the anchors hated each other

    stepping all over each other

    and then going to commericials like mad men ( good pun huh)

    its been weird

    i dont think LE is gonna do a rule out like media unless like the CCTV from the Goodwill showed Big Foot and the CCTV from fed ex looked like tiny tim !!

    Something is very funky

    and the last 18 hours they have been manic with pressers when they had nothing to say and now for some reason nothing

    feels more FBI eeee now
    Many thanks to neesaki for getting rid of old signature!!i

    Police are saying the latest incident at the Goodwill store was not a package explosion. One man was injured, but police don’t believe this is connected to the other #AustinBombings.Kalyn Norwood added,

    #UPDATE: There was no package explosion in the 9800 block of Brodie Ln. Items inside package was not a bomb, rather an incendiary device. At this time, we have no reason to believe this incident is related to previous package bombs. #Breaking #packagebombmurders

    Maybe someone threw a cigarette butt in the donation box. The employee sees smoke,opens the box. The fresh air creates a flash of flames and heat? Just trying to make sense of this. Still waiting on the presser.
