Did you hear about the spate of bombings taking place in Austin Texas this month? If you are not from the area then it is likely you haven't. But they are happening. Four this month so far with deaths and injuries…and it seems as though the bomb maker (s) are getting more sophisticated.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has offered $115,000 reward for information on top of the FBI who have offered $100,000. School buses are not operating in the areas and there are over 500 people from a variety of agencies working the case.
So why have we heard nothing about this?
The first three bombs were package bombs that were left on doorsteps; this latest one was tripwire activated showing that the bomber is taking onboard the warnings being issued about suspicious packages for the public's benefit. You can avoid opening a suspicious package left on your doorstep, but how easy is it to avoid a hidden tripwire?
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley has stated that he and the department believe all the bombs to be connected and has taken to the airwaves to warn residents to be on the lookout.
School buses are being canceled because safety cannot be guaranteed and children are allowed to not attend school during this time if they choose.
But the question I keep coming back to is how is this not national (or even international) news?!?!? A mad bomber setting off deadly devices in a campaign of destruction? If I were of a more suspicious nature, I'd say there is some kind of tacit agreement in the MSM to not publicize this. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below..
Update…MSM are now finally covering this!!! What took them so long?
