    Carrying ricin as a weapon not connected to terrorism

    Casey Cutler, 25, told authorities he carried the poison in vials around his neck to use as a possible weapon, according to a criminal complaint. He said he had been attacked last year by three men while walking to his apartment, and that he intended to use the ricin in self-defense if attacked again, the complaint said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Well, it is not just that. If you were standing on a bus or in a store when he cracked open that ricin, you would would be gone too, whether or not you were involved with him, or just standing in the room. Ricin is considered one of the strongest poisons around.
