"(CNN)Three explosions that occurred when people picked up packages outside their residences appear to be connected, Austin, Texas, city Police Chief Brian Manley said Monday at a news conference."

Quote:
A Monday morning explosion killed a 17-year-old African-American boy and also injured a woman at the house. A second Monday explosion left a 75-year-old woman in critical condition, the chief said. A March 2 blast killed a 39-year-old African-American man.

All the explosions occurred when people who lived at the residences went outside and picked up packages, Manley said. The packages were not delivered by the postal service or delivery services like UPS or FedEx, he said.

"The evidence makes us believe these incidents are related," he said, saying investigators have not come up with a motive, and he did not say if anybody has claimed responsibility. It's not known if the victims knew each other or if they were targeted, he said.
Police also have not decided if these are hate crimes, but he said that's a possibility because of the victims' races.

"We're not ruling anything out at this point," he said. "We're willing to investigate any avenue."

Authorities have identified one victim. Anthony Stephan House, 39, died from injuries in the March 2 explosion, police said. The woman injured Monday afternoon suffered life-threatening injuries, the chief said.

In describing the Monday morning blast that killed the teenager, the chief said: "What we understand at this point is that early this morning is that one of the residents went out front and there was a package on the front doorstep. They brought that package inside the residence and as they opened that package, both victims were in the kitchen, and the package exploded, causing the injuries that resulted in the young man's death and the injuries to the adult female."

That woman's injuries were not life-threatening, he said.
Manley strongly urged residents to be on the lookout for suspicious packages and to alert authorities immediately.

"If you've received a package that has been left on your doorstep or left in your yard or left on your driveway that you were not expecting or that was not from someone you know, then give us a call," Manley said.

It's Austin so the list of potential suspects is going to be roughly equal to the city's population. :|

With a good chance the person(s) doing it came from California.

Perp is a homeschooled Christian, self-described “conservative, although not that political”, with a history of posting “mainstream conservative” anti-abortion and anti-gay views.

Said the Police Chief of the perps “confession” video:
" it is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life that led him to this point,"

Such a sympathetic description after a murderous city-wide bombing spree. I wonder if those words would have ever be said if he had turned out to be a Muslim or “BLM” member.

It had a slight feel as just that (unabomberish) to start with but he then went and used a trip wire bomb then the last 2 bombs seemed to have targeted businesses instead of residential areas.

So you are saying the intern Chief of Police is a racist. Please expound on your wealth of knowledge about him. How often have you meet him? Do you have some sort of paper trail via the internet showing him to be a racist? Come on and spill it BeaveFeaver, exactly how do you know he is a racist?

I'd like to think this guy was addicted to blowing things up the way a pyromaniac is addicted to arson, in that sometimes a lone nut really is just a lone nut. That being said, he did have a list of targets and that list's pattern will show what his gripe was. At the end of it all I won't be surprised, considering he's already by called some kind of a hard "conservative", if he's revealed to be another alt-right 4Chan/Daily Stormer type. All the early indications for this conclusion are certainly there, even if his motivations as of right now weren't explicitly fueled by political or social extremism.

His first few targets and Victims indicate a strong possibility of what you are saying.

It's getting easier and easier to be able to tell the politics and race in crimes that are committed in America even before video of the event or the names/mugshots of anyone arrested are released. Mass shooting or bombing? Most likely a white guy and most often a right-winger or religious extremist, although it's more than fair to assume it could be a Muslim too going by certain mass killings over the last few years. Chicago's thirtieth shooting of the night? Most likely a black guy. Huge brawl at an urban IHOP, Popeye's, Chucky Cheese, or McD's? Most likely some completely out-of-control black women doing it in front of a whole bunch of their own little kids. Flash mob looting stores in a shopping mall or at WalMart? Most likely to be black high school kids who organized in on Snapchat. Drunk post-game riot at a university? Most likely white frat boys at the center of it. Riot stopping a speech on a university campus? Almost entirely likely to be done by a mix of all races belonging to the hardcore left wing.

Seriously, this is just obvious to anyone paying enough attention. Folks can get mad at me all they want for being a "racist" but the internet videos and after-the-fact press coverage are both easy enough to find to prove that I'm correct. Certain groups are more often than not more likely to do certain things. It's simply a fact of life. :|
