Police Chief: Austin Bomber Is a ‘Domestic Terrorist’

Austin's Interim Police Chief Brian Manley told an audience in Austin that he now feels comfortable calling the Austin bomber “a domestic terrorist,” according to reporters at a panel discussion on the bombings. “When I look at what he did to our community—and as your police chief—I actually agree now, that he was a domestic terrorist for what he did to us,” Manley said. Suspected bomber Mark Conditt killed two people and injured four others with explosives sent to his victims in packages. He blew himself up as authorities closed in on him.
