Just heard about this from a co-worker. Fed-Ex walked in the door as he's telling me

I know it's not carrier packages per the news but I'm not opening them!

Actually 2 dead now and 3 injured. Police are telling people not open a package if you didn't order anything or if it looks suspicious. Call 911 asap. Crazy nuts in this world.

I wouldn’t worry about boxes delivered by a delivery company. It’s the ones that mysteriously arrive on your front porch. These seem to be hand made and hand delivered by the maker

He also said that investigators were not ruling out the possibility of the explosions being a hate crime because the victims in those cases are African-American.

The U.S. Postal Service told investigators that the packages did not come through their facilities, so the packages were likely left by someone at the doorstep, Manley said.


Odd deal for sure. Looking at the streets, they seem to be close to the airport...

Simply to make a point, and not to make light of the situation, but I wonder if this means UPS and FedEx are now to be labeled terrorist organizations?

I read it as a lady in her 70s, another in her 80s and a teenage kid.

No clue, but it seems like this perp was at each site hand delivering the packages. Like others have said, there should be somebody that saw something.

Can't tell if you're making a joke about the people who post this kind of thing whenever "Austin" comes up in this forum, or if you're seriously reflexively posting this on a thread about bombings.

It's very sad. In today's world the mentally I'll criminal has more support and protection from a vast number of organizations (won't list them all out but your standard liberal ones are at the top of the list) than their victims. And it leaves the criminal justice system almost unable to do much. It can't be denied, it each year that passes the crimals are winning more. I don't care what kind of numbers are distributed to say differently. God help us.

It's hard to tell who's delivering what with Amazon contracting out people to deliver packages. I have seen all kinds of vehicles delivering stuff. I actually yelled at one of them delivering at my neighbors because I didn't know they were delivering a package, I just saw them with their package and thought they were stealing it.

I agree, have been using Amazon for a lot of purchases lately and some of the vehicles that pull up to drop them off look pretty shady.

^^This,

I had a woman in a minivan delivery my amazon packages last week. Not as easy to recognize when not all packages come out of a carrier truck with logos all over them.

Had someone trying to deliver to one of my neighbors the other day and they were having trouble figuring out which house it was. Seemed odd at first until they told me they were delivering for Amazon.

It was a tongue in cheek slight to the folks' wanting to blame the NRA for mass shootings. This is definitely not UPS, the USPS, and/or FedEx's fault.

I had no idea about this. I use amazon a lot but where I am it all comes UPS or USPS.

Amazon is going to rethink this deal or they are opening up to lots of liability.

This is not a hate crime in my opinion, all the victims are not black but so far all are minorities. I highly doubt it will be a white supremacist and like mentioned above its more likely an antics type. Time will tell but rest assured the media and the Democrat party will spin it in a negative light on Trump

Not sure that is why they climbed the hate crime tree. I think they tried to connect all victims first with no luck. Then went to try and connect other aspects. One thing that is common in the crimes is victims are black. I think they were just trying to release some I found but not a bunch of info and that was one aspect they could release. All that said the media twist and turn everything.

Ted Kaczynski had an Eco-Political motive and sent his bombs to high profile staff and various institutions, this seems to be different.

By the way, there is a great series on Netflix called Manhunt Unabomber that details the FBI prowler that caught Ted.

They are grasping for something to connect the victims and thus far the minority angle is the only thing that seems connected at least with what we know. And it fits their narrative very well
