Police in Austin say "similarities" between two deadly package explosions in Texas' capital city this month lead them to believe the incidents are related. The latest incident, reported Monday morning, killed a 17-year-old boy and wounded a woman, Austin police chief Brian Manley said.
The boy died at the scene and the woman in her 40s was taken to the hospital with potentially life threatening injuries after the explosion at the East Austin home before 7 a.m. In an earlier incident March 2, Anthony Stephan House, 39, was killed when a package exploded at his northeast Austin home, CBS affiliate KEYE reports.
Police also responded around 11:50 a.m. Monday to the report of an explosion in southeast Austin in which a woman was badly injured, according to police and the Associated Press, but more information wasn't immediately available and it wasn't clear whether it was related to the two package explosions...

Any correlation to all that were transported there after Katrina in New Orleans?
It’s black victims in 2 different areas. Would they be speculating hate crime if it were white victims in 2 different areas?
The press is regurgitating what the Austin police department was slow to report (about the threat of opening strange packages found on your porch).
Apparently they have the materials from several packages and have concluded that they weren’t delivered by USPS, FedEx et al.
There is some suspicion that the bomber set them off local (while watching from within the neighborhood).
Sounds like they'd automatically rule out a hate crime if the victims were white.
[Local radio news is calling it a possible hate crime , of course .]
Yes, someone who hates people.
I always thought of Austin as
Austin on side of the river
Bubbaville on the other side of the river.
Of course, that was back when the Air Force base was active and working....
They need to get Sheriff Piehole from Broward County on this.
This from March 2nd.
That map got me singing The Gourds TexMexTattooPakastaniPackageMile. Could not find it on YouTube.
Well the south congress whores they is a movin on down the line
They moved the cinema west down to Interstate 35
The Hos got their Johns following single file
The aintt good lookin but they got that freaky style
Down on the tex-mex and tattoo Pakistani package mile
They got a thing down there that makes an angry young man mild
And if you go down there and smoke out yer gonna leave with a smile
Down on that tex-mex and tattoo pakastani package mile
I hear the police sirens theyre whining every night
From south first and west mary all the way down to Ben White
Ol Tom Ables used to say with an impish smile
Brother, sit back and listen to the south Austin lullaby
I lost 10 years down there smoking that Pachuca weed
I was Rip Van Winkle but I thought I was Apollo Creed
I couldnt find my dingo boots, hell I couldnt even find my feet
I kept a waking and a baking even though it was mostly seeds
Media staging: Briefing regarding today’s 2nd explosion will be held off Porter Street and Vargas Rd. Time to be determined. -APD PIO

Whereas they would immediately rule out any possibility of a hate crime if the victims were white.
Hasn’t Antifa declared was on “gentrification” recently?
I had to look up “4800 block of Oldfort Hill Drive, north of E. MLK Blvd” because I am aware of the similarly named Oltorf south of Riverside, south of the river. south of Caesar Chavez...
Commie-Fascists declared WAR on cat-cafes in Austin.
Gentrification protest at Blue Cat Café in East Austin turns violent
Sunday, June 11, 2017
A dozen or so protesters stood outside the Blue Cat Café in East Austin on Sunday to object to what they say is gentrification exemplified by the business that took the place of a local piñata shop two years ago...
The Blue Cat Café, near the intersection of Navasota and Cesar Chavez streets, sits on the property where Jumpolin had operated for eight years until it was suddenly demolished in February 2015 on the orders of the landowners, sparking community outrage.
According to a Facebook event page to organize the protest, the demonstration was intended to tell Austin and anyone coming into our communities that we do not accept the continued erasure of our working class black and brown neighborhoods of the east side....
The protesters, with bandanas covering their faces, carried signs and shouted obscenities and accusations at the stores owner, Rebecca Gray, and others inside the building. Tensions came to a boiling point almost immediately when protesters arrived and scuffled with supporters of the Blue Cat Café. One confrontation left a man bloodied, witnesses on both sides said.
At one point after Austin police arrived, officers used a stun gun during an arrest of a female protester, spurring angry shouts and slurs. Two protesters were eventually charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest and interfering, according to Austin police officials.
The tense scene outside the vegan eatery that has served as a home to more than 200 adoptable cats is a familiar one Gray said the protesters have stood outside with their signs and chants about 30 times since the business began in October 2015.
Last October, on the anniversary of the businesss opening, workers discovered profane graffiti against you gentrified scum on the walls of the building, and vandals had glued the doors shut, trapping cats inside...
Bernie Sanders came into Austin this past weekend.
There, fixed it.
"....interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley....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...."
Wow. If the victims are black, then it may be a hate crime?
What if the victims were white and the perpetrator turns out to be black? Is that a hate crime?
What if the perpetrator in these Austin cases turns out to be black, is that still considered a hate crime?
If the victims were white and the perpetrator was white, is that also a hate crime?
I suspect if you're the victim and you're white, that there is no such thing as a hate crime against you....because "you be white-privileged".
When liberals wanted to make murder worse than just murder, they added their subjective judgment to the law pronouncing it a crime of "hateful murder". In the minds of liberals, that's a notch above just being dead. The victim was dead because somebody "hated" them.
No sh*t Sherlock!
Would arrest records if any of the victims provide clues?
