Incidents by Americans angry at the U.S. government, some members of Congress and the IRS are continuing. For example, a man accused of dropping more than 30 explosive devices into mailboxes and other locations across east Texas did so out of anger toward the government and was acting alone, federal authorities said Thursday. The suspect was indicted Wednesday on charges of possessing an illegal firearm or destructive device. He could face 10 years in prison if convicted. The suspect is responsible for planting 36 devices between February 5 and April 7, said an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Authorities previously said they had found at least 16 explosive devices, including five pipe bombs. “These devices, over 30 in number, have caused fear in this community nothing short of domestic terrorism,” a prosecutor said. “Today that fear stops.” The suspect was arrested after he was identified while placing an explosive in a Tyler mailbox last Wednesday, officials said.
