The suspect in the Austin bombings was Mark Anthony Conditt, a 24-year-old white man from Pflugerville, Texas, according to law enforcement officials who spoke to NBC News.Neighbors expressed shock that Conditt, who was homeschooled, was the bomber.

“I know this is a cliché but I just can’t imagine that,” one neighbor, whose children grew up playing with Conditt, told the Austin Statesman.

The local newspaper also reported that Conditt had received a degree from Austin Community College’s Northridge Campus.He had worked at Crux Semiconductor and as a computer repair technician.

Police were able to identify Conditt with help from video footage and witness accounts. Officials are unsure of his motive.

It sure did not take them very long to identify the bombing suspect! I would have thought that any computer repair technician that was familiar with current technology, would have taken care to cover his tracks if he did not want to be caught. It has been stated that a Federal Search Warrant was issued to obtain his IP address, and that the suspect's internet search history raised red flags.

SOURCE Federal search warrants were then used to get the man's IP address, which showed that he'd been making "suspicious" Google searches, Plohetski said.


So, was he careless? Was he stupid?

Or, does the FBI have resources available that were able to penetrate any safeguards that were in place?

Or, is he a patsy?

I believe he was caught on camera taking two boxes in to the Fed Ex facility that was bombed. Kind of hard to cover that up.

Insiders told CNN he "wanted to cause death and mayhem"

Should have just offed himself instead... RIP to the victims.

It sounds like he was acting alone (?)

Is that a serious question? Really?

Everywhere I look comments sections are filled with blaming this on "white christian terrorism". Do they know something nobody else does? Was he killing for Christianity or for racist reasons? Weren't some of his victims white?

I think it is high time to ban bombs! /sarc off....

Seriously, we need to find a way to better see when someone is teetering on the edge and help them.

It appears from a facebook post by his mom that they were heavy duty Christians. He was homeschooled, and she mentions after he “graduated” high school, that he might take some time off and do a mission trip. Just speculation at this point...

They're probably shills or bots. Ignore them.

At this point, I believe all questions are valid and worth exploring. Yes, I realize that intelligence agencies have sophisticated computer forensic tools at their disposal. Some we know about, others we can only guess at. My personal suspicion is that they didn't have to break out their big guns to sniff out the alleged bomber, but I would be interested to find out what methods were used.

You can't be a "heavy-duty" Christian and bomb people. Just saying...

They also used geotracking to pinpoint his location. They tracked his footprints from his cell activity.

Religious bombings are VERY VERY commonplace in some places.

I was in Pflugerville a couple of months ago. It's about 30+ minutes from Austin.

When they try to politicize this, Austin is a liberal city. I stopped in the best buy and they check-out girl said, thanks and buy. i was like, can i have a bag? She was like, we don't really have bags. She said Austin is a bag free city. When i expressed shock, she replied that she was from another part of Texas and was amazed about the lack of plastic bags too.

Yeah in the middle east.

As the topic goes.



Officials are unsure of his motive.

White Christians are evil, you don't want to be associated with them, So vote Democrat or you are just as bad.

Well, there’s no evidence that his parents were bombing anybody, so yeah, they could still be heavy duty Christians. Obviously he wasn’t following true Christian tenets.

You also conveniently left out he was probably a registered Democrat. Not if it matters but please be accurate if you want to blame a whole group. He was a pos end of story. Blame th emedia for glorifying mass murderers because he was inspired by the Zodiac KIller.

His social media presence has been scrubbed really quickly btw.

Stop before you hurt yourself or someone else.
I simply do not understand the term "heavy duty christian". Describe if you can what works of faith in grace have been commited where we identify these acts done by faith in grace.

And for the record, Yah hates religion too

Well maybe someday we can be as enlightened as the fine humans that inhabit that lovely area of the globe.
