RE: Assholes in the news

Saying "I was just trolling" after having said something ridiculous and being called on it is pretty much the same thing as starting a sentence with " I'm no racist/sexist/bigot but..."

In both cases you know whatever preceded or followed it was idiotic.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

RE: Assholes in the news

I got curious and looked up bombing incidents in the U.S.

Actually, most domestic bombers I came across are in the same age range as Conditt, like Timothy McVeigh and the Tsarnaev brothers.

Serial bombers, however, are typically older, like the Unabomber. (edited for accuracy)

I just saw that Austin PD Chief Manley confirmed that a 25-minute video was recovered from the cell phone of Conditt.

Manley said it contains the confession of a very challenged young man and the challenges that led him to this point, though we'll never be able to put rationale behind his acts.

I hope they release it to the public soon.

I don't know what you're trying to pull Maggot, but he was probably black after he blew himself up if that makes you feel any better.

Yeah he was black, red and blew all over.

RE: Assholes in the news

Austin PD Chief Manley said he's not going to release Conditt's video confession while the investigation is ongoing.

He did reveal that aside from the video being the outcry and confession of a challenged young man, most of the video described the bombs he made and how he made them in great detail.

There were seven bombs in total described. So, LE is more confident that there are no more of his bombs out there.

Manley stated that Conditt's confession video did not include an explanation as to how and why he chose his victims. He also stated that Conditt was planning to send more bombs and was researching addresses before he blew himself up.

Today it was reported that Conditt took part in a Christian survivalist group for home-schooled youth when he was a teen.

The conservative group called RIOT (Righteous Invasion of Truth) would study the bible and discuss weapons and dangerous chemicals, according to his friend who participated with Conditt and Conditt's sister in the group. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...group.html

RE: Assholes in the news

Today it was revealed that police were able to confirm Conditt as the Austin bombing suspect when Fed Ex surveillance cameras caught his license plate.

As I understand it and according to police, Conditt was on the list of 'persons of interest' based on the receipt history research covered upthread.

It was also revealed that LE found a lot of bomb-making materials at the home Conditt shared with his two roommates; there were no completed bombs found.

I don't think a black or brown person would have been referred to as a "challenged young man". I believe different adjectives would have been used to describe him and none as harmless as challenged. My opinion is he would have been described as a monster and worse.

I think it depends on the mindset of whomever is doing the describing.

I did see that Chief Manley is taking a lot of heat for describing the bomber as a "challenged young man" and not a "terrorist".

That seems to happen a lot in this kinds of cases. Even when it's not clear if the motive was politically, religiously, or racially based, a lot of people tend to consider crimes that terrorize regions or communities as hate crimes and/or terrorism. But, law enforcement's official definitions are more narrow.

Investigators are still looking into what motivated Conditt, but the recording he left on his cell phone shows that he was a 'sick individual,' according to US Rep. Michael McCaul.

McCaul has apparently heard the videotaped confession and told the press that Conditt referred to himself as a psychopath since childhood and that the killer also said he didn't feel any remorse.

Nashville

The asshole behind the wheel really pisses me off.





He approached the 70-year-old woman in the parking lot of the Church of Christ and asked her for directions to a shelter.

Then he ripped her purse out of her hands and put the petal to the metal, leaving her to fall on her face. She suffered facial injuries and broken bones in her hands.

Police say the driver, who they haven't caught yet, is Gilbert Ostring, Jr. He's a career criminal who was released from state prison a year ago. Ostring has a history of targeting elderly women at churches. Lowlife fucker.
