…All charges Dropped.
My contention that placing Paul Kevin Curtis and Ricin in the same room would have resulted in a Darwin Award appears to have been right.
Refer to: FBI Arrest Motley Fool for Ricin Letters
Now Ashley Judd can rest… assured that the FBI will not be knocking on her door anytime soon.
But all ends well as Mr. Curtis professed his love for the country… who arrested and kept him in jail with no evidence of a crime being committed.
Bless his heart.
I suspect he votes.
I’m heading to the cupboard for a drink.
Musician, Artist… whistle-blower, political activist… Paul Kevin Curtis, 45 has been arrested for sending Letters laced with Ricin to elected officials.
We are to except a Clown having more in common with Ashley Judd than a terrorist sent the Ricin Letters?
Why do I sense we should withhold our satisfaction regarding this “triumph” of police work?
If the motive is one where the person in question is extremely angry because he was not being taken seriously combined with access to Ricin and the means to deliver it… then wouldn’t that make our Commander-in-Chief a suspect as well? Just sayin’…
“Obama rages over gun control bill defeat…” – I mean, how much more “not being taken seriously” can a person take?
What better way to cover your tracks than to send yourself a poisonous letter, while knowing full well it would never reach you.
Anyway, I genuinely hope it doesn’t take 5-years to find out that this guy is innocent as it did with Richard Jewell…
(Update: A completely unreliable source, a source familiar to CNN, has informed me that the initials “KC” found on the Ricin letters stand for “Kansas City”. It should be noted that Kansas City has a very, very long criminal history varying from petty theft and domestic disturbances to serial killing. It should also be noted that the source did not differentiate between Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. We’ll keep you posted as more information comes in.)
(Update: A source within law enforcement, the same source that released the pictures of two young men fitting the profile of “terrorist cliché” from the Boston Marathon, have confirmed that the town of Kansas City is responsible for the Ricin letters… may be. We will post any new details as they emerge.)
