Austin Bomber’s Recording Says He’s Not Sorry, May Be A ‘Psychopath’
Mark Conditt reportedly had a much more deadly plan to end his bombing rampage. …
As part of his homework for an Austin Community College government class, he kept a blog for a few months in early 2012 in which he detailed conservative views on topics including same-sex marriage (he was against making it legal) and terrorism (he was against cutting deals with al Qaeda operatives).
A BuzzFeed report revealed that Conditt had been active in a Bible study group called Righteous Invasion of Truth (RIOT) that focused on outdoor survival skills, including how to shoot guns and use knives.
Authorities have warned that he may have planted or mailed other bombs prior to his death and have asked residents to stay vigilant.

No Jail For Texas Teen Who Lied About Being Raped By 3 Black Men
She has pleaded guilty, saying she made up the story after cutting herself and her clothing.
A North Texas teenager who falsely claimed she was kidnapped and raped by three black men last March will likely serve no jail time.
On Thursday, 19-year-old Breana Harmon of Pottsboro pleaded guilty to four felony charges of tampering with physical evidence and government documents in relation to false reports of kidnapping and sexual assault.
“She’s very remorseful for what she did and what she said, and that’s why she decided to plead guilty,” Harmon’s attorney Bob Jarvis told the Sherman Herald Democrat. No suspects were ever identified or arrested in the case.
Harmon will be sentenced March 20. Her plea deal has two possible punishments: regular probation or deferred adjudication, which often involves fulfilling a requirement, such as treatment or community service. Neither involves jail time.
On March 8, 2017, Harmon was reported missing to the Denison Police Department after witnesses noticed the door to her vehicle was open with personal items, including a phone and keys, scattered on the ground.
A few hours later, Harmon walked into a church wearing only a shirt, bra and underwear. She said she had been kidnapped by three black males wearing ski masks, according to the Sherman Herald Democrat. Harmon claimed the men assaulted her and and that she was raped by two men while a third held her down.
Investigators noticed inconsistencies in Harmon’s story within in a few days. Medical workers didn’t find evidence she had been raped, and the holes in a pair of blue jeans discovered at the alleged crime scene didn’t match her injuries, according to the Dallas Morning News.
“The puzzle pieces just weren’t coming together,” Denison Police Chief Jay Burch said, according to the Morning News.
Harmon told police two weeks later that she made up the rape and that cuts on her body were self-inflicted.
She told officers that she was upset after she and her fiancé had been fighting, according to the Herald Democrat. Harmon said she cut herself and her clothes, then made up the rape story because she didn’t want her family to be angry with her.
Burch said Harmon’s false allegations have hurt the community, especially its African-American residents.
“Breana [Harmon’s] hoax was also insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community due to her description of the so-called suspects in her hoax,” Burch said, according to the Herald Democrat. “The anger and hurt caused from such a hoax are difficult and all so unnecessary.”

“I’d gladly execute a convicted adulterer, sodomite or bestialiter,” he wrote. “Biblical law is a blessin.”

Teacher reports six-year-old Muslim boy with Down’s Syndrome to police for ‘terrorism‘
Mohammad Suleiman ‘cannot speak at all’, his parents say
A supply teacher‘s call to police about a six-year-old Muslim boy with Down’s Syndrome led to his family being investigated for terrorism.
Officers launched the probe after six-year-old Mohammad Suleiman allegedly kept repeating the words “Allah” and “boom” [in] class.
His parents from the Texan city of Pearland, around 20 miles south of Houston, have claimed this cannot be true because “he doesn’t speak at all” and has “the mental capacity of a one-year-old.”
The boy’s father said the family been through hell after becoming the subjects of both a police and social services investigation.
“The last three or four weeks have been the hardest of my life,” Maher Suleiman told the Fox26 news channel. “My wife and kids were crying a few days ago and I told them everything is fine.
“Mohammad was born with Down’s Syndrome Chromosome 21. He needs care all the time.”
He added: “They claim that he’s a terrorist. This is so stupid, this is discrimination actually. It’s not implied discrimination, it’s a hundred per cent discrimination.”
