Can you imagine being a FEDX or UPS employee in Texas? Thus far they are refusing to link to terror

    What is going on in Texas is certainly terrifying for those who live and work there despite it not being labeled terrorism.
    Initially they had mentioned that it may be a "hate crime" which is just absurd. Any act of violence is a product of hate.
    This situation has basically broken package delivery services in Texas atm.
    I hope they are getting any federal help they need.

    I wonder if "broken package delivery" is the goal.

    the only reason they wouldn't call it that is that they think it's an angry white male supremacist terrorists.

    I would certainly consider it so but with the narrow description we use to define terrorism I don't think it qualifies unless we find out it was politically or religiously motivated.

    With the unibomber it was a fight with the IRS.

    No. The intent is to terrorize the community. That is obvious.

    Do you need to catch a thief to define theft?
