The Eugene, OR police department found explosive devices planted outside their headquarters building Monday. That followed the release of police body cam video showing the death of a local Antifa member. Charlie Landeros drew a gun on officers attempting to arrest him at his daughter’s middle school and they shot him to death.
With the release of the bodycam video, the local Antifa crowd there have become even more…angry.
Obviously, the local Antifa crew and/or their sympathizers stand as prime suspects in the bomb plot. After all, these devices didn’t magically materialize out of thin air.
Landeros, 30, served as a firearms instructor for the Antifa-related group “Armed Community Self-Defense” (Facebook page now deleted). The group touted itself as a “new liberatory and inclusive space for all oppressed peoples to learn about armed self-defense.”
The radical Landeros, wearing a “Smash the Patriarchy” t-shirt and carrying a concealed firearm showed up at his daughter’s school. In addition to an illegally carried pistol, he also toted a backpack full of loaded magazines. When police intervened, he drew the pistol and fired two rounds.
Here’s an uncensored version of the police body cam video we posted Monday.
Landeros was shot to death by the officers during the struggle. Additional investigation has uncovered that two days prior to the shooting, Landeros posted “Time to start killing pigs” on social media.
Now cops in Eugene have discovered and disarmed a number of improvised explosive devices outside their headquarters building. What’s more, according to police, these devices were the real deal, not amateur-hour hoax toys intended to scare people.
EUGENE, Ore. — Police in Eugene are searching for answers after explosives were found outside their headquarters on Country Club Road late Monday afternoon.
Lt. David Natt said incendiary devices were discovered by a crew who was mowing the front lawn.
“This is not a hoax device,” Natt said. “This is a very serious matter.”
The Eugene Metro Explosive Disposal Unit was called and defused the explosives. Natt would not go into details about the devices but said they are now in the hands of forensic experts.
“Our hope is that we get some physical evidence off it and that physical evidence leads us to somebody involved in the production and/or deployment of these devices,” Natt said.
While the Eugene Police Department is in charge of the investigation, Natt said they have reached out to federal agencies and plan to review security camera footage.
The cops recovered the devices and gave them to our friends at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who have zero sense of humor regarding the terroristic use of explosives. They pour tremendous resources and expertise into finding bomb makers.
And they (almost) always gets them too. They eventually got the brilliant (but crazy) Ted Kaczynski, AKA the Unabomber. It took them 17 years to nab Kaczynski, but they caught him.
Given the skill sets shown by Antifa so far as shown in the above video from their Chicagoland chapter, we imagine the arrest of Eugene bomber(s) will happen sooner rather than later. Watch this space.
