Bag Full Of Ricin Found In Las Vegas Hotel - Deadly Poison

So let me get this straight? A guy is found with Ricin, a deadly poison with no medical uses except experimental cancer treatments (very rare) and the police won’t consider the possibility of a terrorist attack?

Ever since the attacks on the subways by the Aum Shinrikyo folks in Japan, people have know about how deadly toxins like Serin and Ricin are. It comes from the Castor Bean and only a few grains can kill a person. Not the kind of stuff you would use to kill rats. They find a plastic bag of the stuff in a motel room of a man who was hospitalized for breathing difficulties and discover the bag of the poison in his personal effects.

I am not an alarmist, but that raises a few dozen red flags for me! What else would the guy have the poison for except to poison someone, and if it was a bag full of it, to poison several “someones”? The difference is it was found in Las Vegas and there with tourists being so vital to the economy, nothing is ever done that causes alarms. Money must flow to the gaming tables regardless of the risks to the public.

Comforting news for other potential terrorists, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
