Its end of the road for him, He was taken out by the tools of his own trade. Did he purposely blow himself up as he was about to get caught by the officer or did he accidentally blow himself up with an unstable device?.

"The bomber, described as a 24-year-old white male, killed himself and injured an officer when he detonated a bomb inside his car as police approached."

Not really sure. But either one is possible. He may have committed suicide, OR the bomb was unstable like the one that detonated in the FedEx place and blew before he could surrender. scratch

Apparently the reason he was caught was because he was caught on CCTV at a Fedex center, where he delivered some of the Explosive devices. after tracking him to a hotel room in Round Rock they followed him onto the I-35 where they pulled him over and the suspect killed himself and injured an SWAT officer

"Exotic" batteries ordered online helped lead authorities to the Austin, Texas, bombing suspect before he died early Wednesday as police closed in, multiple senior law enforcement officials told NBC News.

Austin police and federal agents had been working around the clock with 350 agents to track down the 24-year-old bombing suspect.

Police did not name the bomber, but two law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation identified him to NBC News as Mark Anthony Conditt.

The unusual batteries used in the explosives were the signature trait that allowed investigators to so quickly link the various explosions to the same man, sources said. One senior law enforcement official said the batteries came from Asia.

"These weren't your store-bought Duracells," one official said.

Investigators scouring for leads into the life of the suspected Austin, Texas, serial bomber — who brought the sweeping manhunt to an end early Wednesday after he blew himself up — may find some clues in a 2012 blog.

In a series of posts, author Mark Conditt wrote that he was "not that politically inclined."

"I view myself as a conservative, but I don't think I have enough information to defend my stance as well as it should be defended," it continued.

"The reasons I am taking this class is because I want to understand the US government, and I hope that it will help me clarify my stance, and then defend it."

The blog, titled "Defending My Stance," belonged to a Mark Conditt from Pflugerville, Texas — the name and hometown of the 23-year-old man that law enforcement sources say was behind the deadly package bombings in Austin this month.

Although they were written six years before Conditt detonated a final explosive in his car during a confrontation with police, the op-ed style entries provide a glimpse into the suspect's views.

"Living criminals harm and murder, again — executed ones do not," he wrote in a piece in support of the death penalty.

In a commentary on a deal the government made to release an Al Qaeda terrorist, Conditt was dead-set against it. "I think it is just plain dumb to release a terrorist, much less a senior one — no matter what he can provide," he wrote.

On the issue of gay marriage, he wrote, "homosexuality is just not natural." Commenting on free abortions, he wrote: "If a woman does not want a baby, or is incapable of taking care of one, she should not participate in activities that were made for that reason."

But in another post, he suggested eliminating sex offender registries, saying they punished people who had already served their time or were convicted of minor offenses.

"You have to really hate the guy to make him suffer for the rest of his life," he wrote.

Conditt took community college classes while he was being homeschooled, along with his three younger siblings, according to a post on his mother's Facebook page.

When he "officially graduated" high school, his mother wrote: "He's thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do....maybe a mission trip








Well he decided on a "Mission" of sorts.  Evil or Very Mad

Agreed. They seemed very bland, as many people use and argue the same points countless times.

Oh thats already the narrative.

Every time something like this happens both the right and the left rush to frame the other side with the perpetrator. They're either a Nazi or Antifa member

Its funny but sad at the same time.

True. The media usually tries to find a way of making everything seem like it was politically motivated. Rolling Eyes

i hate the old media so much

remember when they said atchison was a neo nazi?
i knew him and he was just a good troll.
his real motive was depression most likely because he probably felt he had nothing else to do and hatred for the school. most likely had some mental disorder

If you listen to those of an SJW persuasion they'll say you can't even joke or troll about such things. I really hate these kinds of people, they have no sense of humor whatsoever.

The death of the Austin bomber brought some relief to the Texas capital. But as authorities dig through the evidence, even they acknowledge the motive is a mystery.

Mark Anthony Conditt recorded a 25-minute confession and killed himself in a final explosion, ending a wave of package bombings that terrorized Austin for weeks.

But none of the evidence that investigators have gathered has yet given police many clues as to what motivated the 23-year-old man to embark on a nearly month-long spree of violence.

"It is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his life that led him to this point," Austin police Chief Brian Manley said of the video.

A 25-minute recording was found on Conditt's cellphone when police recovered his body Wednesday morning.

In his confession, Conditt described the components of seven bombs he built -- including, authorities believe, the one he used to kill himself -- and detailed the differences among the bombs, Manley said.

But the video itself failed to shed light on a possible motive. He did not make any references suggesting involvement with terror groups or that the bombings were hate crimes.

Federal investigators on Thursday combed through the home of the 23-year-old they say was behind this month's deadly Texas bombing spree, seeking clues about what motivated his attacks the day after he killed himself in a confrontation with police.

Mark Conditt, an unemployed man from the Austin suburb of Pflugerville, confessed to the three-week string of bombings in a 25-minute video found on his cellphone, police said. Conditt blew himself up with one of his own bombs on Wednesday as police closed in on him in his car.

The video showed a troubled young man, according to Austin Police Chief Brian Manley, but did not outline a clear motive for the attacks that began March 2.

The police department was unlikely to make the video public while the investigation continued, said spokeswoman Destiny Wilson.

Investigators sought further clues from the home Conditt moved into last year and shared with two roommates in Pflugerville, which is within walking distance of his family's house.

Yeah good ol Vance Stone i knew him for a while and he had a bad childhood, When will the world realise the real cause of all Mass Murders, its mental health.
The world should be putting time into fixing society and helping Mentally ill people instead of exploiting these events for political and ideological gain. The majority of these killers have troubled pasts and are traumatised by everything, from ISIS operatives to Lone wolfs these people are ALL disturbed and the media and society is unaware of this and will always find other things to blame except for the root cause.

Pink gloves. Investigators trying to track down the bomber caught a major break when surveillance footage from a FedEx store showed a suspect wearing pink construction gloves, the New York Times reports in a look at the hunt for Conditt. After investigators discovered the gloves were sold at Home Depot, they spotted the same suspect in surveillance video from an Austin-area store. Conditt was already a suspect thanks to license plate and cellphone data.




Caught for his love of pink gloves. I wonder why he wore pink ones?  scratch

Apparently in the confession video he talks about all he's past troubles and what lead him up to this bombing spree, apparently he talks about the devices he made in detail and according to law enforcement the video contains no mention of terrorism or "hate".

hopefully some form of transcript or video of the confession is released but i doubt it will in todays media.

These people are denser than pig shit if they can't figure out what the motive is when the dude is spelling it out right in front of their faces.
