Today there is breaking news that who we already believed to be the suspect, Andrew Schneck, has now been arrested by multiple federal agencies for a plot to blow up a Confederate statue.
Earlier today the University of Texas at Austin said it removed four statues tied to the Confederacy from its campus because they had become "symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism."
Federal prosecutors said in a statement that on that a park ranger noticed Schneck kneeling inside of bushes and shrubbery near the front of the General Dowling Monument in Houston's Hermann Park.
According to law enforcement the items found in Schneck's possession were a timer, wires, duct tape and two types of explosive including nitroglycerin, according to the prosecutors who described it as “one of the world's most powerful explosives.”
According to federal prosecutors the items could have been used to make a viable explosive device and caused massive damage.
He will be charged with attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance, and Schenck now faces up to 40 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

<a href="https://8ch.net/pol/res/10461140.html">8chan /pol/</a> soon after began investigating this terrorist, who has been arrested in the past for improper storage of bomb making materials.

Anons on /pol/ believe his family has high level political associations which were able to get his original charges years ago reduced to simply a large fine.

It's possible his family has New York ties to former Mayor Guiuliani as his mother was actually employed with associates of the Mayor.

Apparently when he was being detained the suspect tried to drink the liquid explosives to remove the evidence.

Apparently the chemicals he had are known as octanitrocubane, which if manufactured properly can be a very powerful explosive, albeit it would need a chemist or someone wise in bomb producing to understand how to combine it to make the explosive.

Unironically the statue he was trying to blow up is actually of a man who was against the Confederacy, Sam Houston, first President of Texas University.

He failed in his attempts and this confirms that <i>/pol/ is always right</i>.
