The people of Austin, Texas are finally able to breathe a little easier after weeks of deadly bombings have come to a halt.
The perpetrator, a young, deranged man by the name of Mark Conditt himself perished after a brief police chase and an explosion from another of the suspect’s devices. Before the violent end of Conditt’s bombing streak, a number of pundits and experts weighed in, attempting to profile whomever the bomber or bombers might be.
At first, the press was pushing a racial motive for the explosive spree, citing the race and economic circumstances of Conditt’s early victims.
Even today, after Conditt has been outed and incapacitated, the mainstream media is foaming at the mouth in order to promote the idea of a race war, simply because that would be great for ratings.
Three deadly bombings within 10 days in the Texas capital of Austin, victimizing three African-Americans and one Hispanic, have, shockingly and revealingly, peeled back the layers of a deep-rooted history of racial strife in a city considered, at least on the surface, among the most liberal and progressive in the state, if not the entire country.
“It’s almost like, ‘Do the bombings uncover another side of Austin?’ It’s that other side that people really don’t get that I think is a national story.”
The speaker is Joseph C. Parker, an attorney licensed to practice law in Texas and federal courts and senior pastor at David Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in East Austin. A longtime community activist whose father marched with Martin Luther King Jr., Parker drew parallels between the deadly bombings in Austin and the ones that terrorized his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, five decades earlier.
In reality, investigators have discovered a 25 minute confession within their investigation of Conditt’s home. Unfortunately for the liberal media, Conditt’s own words have dispelled any rumor son hate-mongering or racial motivation.
Officers located the recording, in which Conditt, 23, described creating seven devices, including one he blew up during the conflict with police, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference. The recording was made on a phone, which was found in the suspect’s possession following the confrontation.
In the recording, the suspect did not mention “anything about terrorism, nor does he mention anything about hate,” the police chief said. The message is rather “the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life.”
Police said all seven devices have been found, suggesting there was no further threat from Conditt to people in the area.
Manley told reporters that authorities believe the recording was made between nine and 11 p.m. Tuesday night and “there was no reason given for why he selected” the affected individuals.
This will likely come as a disappointment to CNN and others who have long been pushing divisiveness in American society.
Once again, we have a young man who was disturbed mentally, and who lashed out violently without warning. The only thing missing from the normal cadre of youth maniacs in America, so far, is a prescription for serotonin reuptake inhibitors – something that has been a common thread in mass killings in America over the course of the last 40 years.
