Police must have a time frame for when the parcels were dropped. Look at the nearest cameras up to that time period (even if it equates to 2000 vehicles) going in and out of the area. Unless the perpetrator is walking or lives inside the area they WILL have him on camera. They then have to trace all vehicles owners.
Do this for every bomb and sooner or later the bomber will show up. Or just let the police sit on their asses till a member of the public does their job for them and catch him in the act.
Doing something is better than doing nothing. Even if it a half million vehicles.

Conway says this latest bomb was more sophisticated than the other three. The profile of a "bomber" in today's time has changed, and it may not be who we think. "Initially people going to think this is a pro, maybe was former military and have some kind of bomb technical experience, but on the other hand, there's so much available and open source today, there is so much available in cyberspace, been so much available, and on the Internet that someone with limited amount of knowledge, unlimited amount of experience, you could put together a device like this," Conway said.
so they seem to be widening their profile beyond ex military and seeming to imply they are simply made devices

I would not count out Yemen - Al Qaeda connection and the potential that they have a number of american contacts to aid their terror plans in multiple states. A plan was attempted in 2010 when Bomb packages mailed to the states (Which originated in Yemen) were thwarted by national security during Obama administration. Remember, there is a civil war in Yemen and Al Qaeda is still active over there. The genesis of modern islamic terror against the west is US involvment in Arab conflicts. This still holds true to today. Even the Arabs who supported Kuwait during the Gulf War was against US involvement. Today the Senate voted down a resolution to restrict US military involvement in the Yemen Civil War

It is now being said that has been determined that the bombs at Fed Ex are tied to the Austin bomber.

Another bombing just occured. 1 person injured. 3 miles from the FED EX where 2 bombs originally shipped from.

Does this guy have a bomb assembly line? That's 7 bombs so far, going off hours apart sometimes. Must be more than 1 person.

They are evacuating the area. This one was a tripwire.

Well at least we can rule out any "Bi'illennial" (I stopped calling them millennials since they are not the same as those born in 1000ad) Since a "Bi'illennial wouldn't look up from their phones long enough to build a bomb, or if they did they would have posted all over Facebook about it.

In reality, I think we might be looking at a cell rather then a disgruntled person, but it still could be a single person building a one person assemble line styled bomb skill. If it's one person, than it should be fairly easy to find info one who this is. A single person going through all this should have a manifesto floating around.

On the other hand if it's a cell it's going to be much harder to find the people, but almost as easy to find the group involved. Instead we have nobody claiming these attacks as their own, or even making demands over them. Even the Unabomber had demands, but not here. Why?

In the other thread, someone brought up Atomwaffen, and this does sound like something they would do, but without any statements from the "Bomber/s" we're still up in the air. Shoot the whole thing could be "Al-Qaida in Central America" since they don't announce anything until the main group tells them to. My point bein is that we just don't know yet. Hopefully these bombs that do go off don't hurt anyone, and the Bomb Squad can get to them first.

Confirmed.. the Bomber is dead. Good riddance. Now we won't have to go through months of trial coverage.

Channel 11 says he has blown himself up at a Sherwin Williams (chain of paint stores) during a confrontation with police; good riddance.

i am so relieved! Another thread states he is only 24?! Nothing confirmed from APD yet. And they don’t know where he has been the last 24 hours so there could be more explosives out there, but at least he has been stopped!

They said he detonated a bomb in his car when approached by SWAT!

I agree. It has to be more than one person. But I do wonder if difficulty in locating this type of suspect lies in the intricacy of the plot or lies simply in the fact that there is an improper level of oversight on where packages are originating from. At this point, it seems like this type of crime is easy to pull off. The lady that was arrested in late 2017 for attempting a similar crime actually mailed the packages a year before she was caught.

There is the possibility that more than one person was involved.
Hopefully it is over, but it is still early to get too excited.
