Man Arrested In Connection to Ricin Letter Sent to Michael Bloomberg
— Ace

The ricin turns out to be "of poor quality and is a low-level, crudely made poison," said FBI ricin reviewer Mr. Blackwell.

So it's probably not that dangerous but it's the thought that counts.

This story will get some play because the notes tainted with the ricin contained anti-gun-control messages. Obama got a similar one, but it's not confirmed yet that it contained ricin.

8 He should just say he's sorry and won't do it again.  After all, that's good enought for Eric (with)-Holder, right?

9 Would we have heard about it if they had been sent to the NRA with pro gun control messages? No. Nor if this had been some code-pink whacko. It's only "news" because liberal targets were chosen and (for the first time in my memory) the criminal really appears to be "on our side." Which sucks.

11 Well, good they got him if he did it. I had been assuming it was a psycho lefty doing a moby bit. Is it clear yet if this guy is a pyscho righty? Not surprised a copycat happened. High profile media cases seem to always spark a copycat.

12 The way these things go I would be on the 60/40 side that this guy is actually on the gun control side and he attempted a false flage operation.

18 The speed with which these two recent psychos were caught just makes the the 2001 case that much more disturbing. Or did we radically improve our mail tracking forensics ability since then? These guys are getting caught within hours and days it seems.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at May 31, 2013 05:32 AM (ZPrif)

19 Though I got to thinking about this. Let's suppose you really believed that someone was a Tyrant and wanted to impose his will on the people, removing all of their liberties (that matter). Let's further suppose that a) you cared about that (many don't) and b) you were in a position (or believed you were) to do something about it. We're not talking "Hitler when he was 20" but "Hitler as soon as he was elected Chancellor." If you truly believed that way, would you have a moral duty to act, or would you (even then) be morally restrained until actual Tyranny had come to pass?

The "anti-gun-control message" on the ricin letter has been found --

"Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

Here is some ricin for you.  I am a straight white male Republican conservative gun owner.  I am taxed enough already!  I hate the blacks and the gays and illegal aliens most of all.  Don't you dare try to take away my Bible or my guns, you filthy Jewish negro-loving homo.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, as a Lutheran pastor, contemplated the question at length as he considered an involvement with the assassination plot against Hitler. If you don't know his story, it is well worth reading. In the end, Bonhoeffer concluded that it was better to do  evil, than to be  evil. The latter being the consequence of being passively complicit with the Nazis. Bonhoeffer was eventually grabbed by the Gestapo. Three weeks prior to Germany's surrender, he was stripped naked, frog-marched to a gallows and hung, because Democratic Socialists, if you get my drift...

Only if you knew it for sure, like as a time traveler who knows the outcome.  Otherwise, you simply don't know how other things will affect or thwart the tyrant.

Unless the person is completely insane (and I would say that means too insane to properly mail a letter) the purpose is to get it to trigger a ricin screen. If it's a false flag, the motive is obvious. If it's not, it's intended to scare the target.

Eh,

I'm not so sure of this.  Every time one of these happens, the news networks pull out their "Ricin assassination!" story from the 80s/90s (whatever).

Then they talk about how "only a few grams can kill!" (but fail to point out that's "Grams of pure ricin" that are inhaled, injested or injected.)

Low Info people may not understand science (and often don't) so the ones that are already tilting crazy may think it's some crazy super poison you can get in your backyard.

102 I'm holding tight, let's recall that in the last case the first guy they arrested was set up.
I'm claiming "cautiousness" is not a conspiracy theory when the feds have a recent record of screwing the pooch on this exact issue.

100% in agreement with you here.  I reserve judgment until some actual real facts settle out of the cloud of speculation and recrimination.

103 Sooner or later they will run out of diversions. 1: Sending a Ricin-laced letter to the POTUS (however much of a f*cking f*cker he is) is not a "diversion." If this guy really did this, I'm glad he got caught. 2: They know that. They're just hoping they have enough distractions to get them to 2016.

104 100 Why would anyone send Bloomberg a letter with ricin? If you really want to get that little turd in a snit sent him a letter loaded with salt --- Why bother with a letter? Send him a 16.9 oz or 20 oz bottle of Coke.

105 Did they say if it was a powder or what? Would castor oil give the test a hit for ricin?

106 idiot-I really want to make my case for responsible gun ownership.

so I'm gonna send a letter with ricin to make sure they know i'm a responsible gun owner that should be free to do my own thing.

107 Would castor oil give the test a hit for ricin? It might, but I think the Post office would have been suspicious when the letter was all drippy when it got dropped off.

109 ok, i'm still having a hard time believing this is real.

really ,write a poison letter , and claiming because of gun rights loss.

like that would be a benefit to you and your idea some how?

110 Posted by: willow at May 31, 2013 11:00 AM (nqBYe) One of these scenarios is true: 1) The guy being blamed didn't do it. 2) He did it, but he's really a lefty. 3) He did it, and he's on the Right, but he's "just crazy." 4) He did it, and he's on the Right- no excuses. In cases 1 or 2, expect the story to get disappeared very quickly. In cases 3 or 4, I'm prepared to say, "I'll apologize for this guy when you apologize for Mao, Stalin, Castro, and Chavez." Or, if not looking for body-counts quite that high: "...when you apologize for the dude who shot Gabrielle Giffords (he was a lefty, remember) and the dude who flew his plane into an IRS building (also a lefty)."

111 This shouldn't influence the gun debate at all. But at this point I think this is smoke and mirrors. The government desperately needs a right-wing terrorist to use as justification for Reeducation.

Posted by: AllenG (Dedicated Tenther) at May 31, 2013 11:01 AM (/PCJa) Doesn't have to be drippy. Castor oil is used in reloading sometimes. If it's anything like Hoppes or CLP that shit gets on something and it's a pain to get off. Add the absorbency of paper as well. (just spitballin')

We find ourselves in the precarious position of being presented with a multitude of ridiculous lies and severe trepidation regarding being seen as an Alex Jones acolyte.

I completely understand. The lies are simply too numerous to take anything at face value anymore.

115 and sent from Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas? nothing like trying to put a mark on an already predisposed group

Posted by: willow at May 31, 2013 06:07 AM (nqBYe)

116 Just because it had antigun-control writing it's obviously Tea Party. Cause no leftywingnut anarchist would EVER , EVER think to be so clever as to send low-grade ricin to Bloomberg and the SCOAMF so they could cause panic and a refreshening of the victim status for both politicians....

I fear false flag ops from the leftards as they start to lose the grip on power that they have... and some of them will indeed do stuff and with the press and judicial system in check, portray Tea Partiers and conservatives as evil incarnate. ..  it's only going to get worse I think..

117 by predisposed i mean ' in Their minds.'

Posted by: willow at May 31, 2013 06:07 AM (nqBYe)

118 I wouldn't be surprised if a lefty sent this to incriminate a right-winger he didn't like. Historically that's far more likely.

I wouldn't be surprised at a false-flag operation, but I've heard excerpts from the letters, and it doesn't sound like the standard lefty caricature. We'll just have to wait to find out.

damn it.

126 If you were sending a ricin letter, ( and you weren't a false flag op) would you not know that postmarks have lead to people for years and years, in books, movies, TV ,  so it's out there.  Would you not then go out of your way... even waaayyyy out of your way to drop your letters off somewhere waaayyy far off from where you live?  Hmmm.

127 Wait, Willow, they know who it is?

128 Gosh, I'd do the simple thing - hand it to a postman. They aren't equipping mail carriers with Go-Pro cameras yet are they? Since it'd be on the taxpayer dime, I'd guess it's coming from this Admin. They can't go directly to drone-based mail delivery...naturally there's a public sector union involved.

129 Yip at link.

Agents could be seen late Thursday night removing items from the South Maple Street home of a man identified by neighbors as Nathaniel Richardson. Neighbors told KSLA News 12′s Fred Gamble that he is an Army Veteran who works at the Red River Army Depot.

Both Richardson and his wife were questioned at their New Boston home, where they live with their five children.
