    Why (seemingly random) package bombs?
    Do you ask those questions when the person is more brown?

    Why he did it is immaterial and is just a way to try and excuse or pacify the action cause the dude looks like the kid down the block.

    I know why he did it. See: nut-job. Those come in all colors and flavors.

    But why bombs?

    Who cares. It makes no difference.

    Because the greatest school massacre was caused by a bomb(s).

    But he's a good white boy, so it's just that he was challenged.

    Oh sh-t.

    The Department of Homeland Security announced a public bid for third party companies to build a “media influence database” capable of tracking more than 290,000 news sources across the globe. First spotted by Bloomberg Law, the public bid would also track journalists and bloggers, compiling their personal information and the publications for which they write.

    Posted on April 3rd as a call for “Media Monitoring Services,” the database has a dual purpose: monitoring hundreds of thousands of news sources simultaneously worldwide as well as tracking and categorizing journalists and bloggers. The “Media Intelligence and Benchmarking Platform,” as the proposed database is called, would monitor more than 290,000 “online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry” news sources worldwide. DHS wants the database to rank and categorize news sources according to a variety of factors, including content and topics covered, reach, circulation and location, and sentiment.

    Perhaps even more chilling given the current media climate, the platform would also feature a database filled with the personal and social media data of “journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, [and] bloggers,” searchable by location, beat, publication, and ad-hoc keywords.

    5 years ago today, the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon. Do know this... if the Tsarnaevs wanted to defeat the human spirit, they shouldn't have targeted marathon runners.
