    Looks like the feds dropped the ball on this one.

    Charges against Mississippi ricin suspect dropped - CNN.com

    "Charges against the Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and other officials were dropped Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams said, citing "new information" that has been uncovered.

    Authorities now are investigating whether someone may have tried to falsely implicate Paul Kevin Curtis, according to a law enforcement source, speaking to CNN on condition of anonymity.

    Curtis said he wants to "get back to being normal" after being falsely accused.

    "This past week has been a nightmare for myself and my family," he said. "My mother has suffered as well as my children."

    I've read some of his internet posts. There's small chance of that ever happening

    may be true.
    Don't you think the feds rushed a bit on charging Curtis? By doing so and with all the media attention, his live will never be normal (or the way it was before the charges)

    In hindsight, yes. But that's easy to say "in hindsight".

    I'd have to see more details about how they came to their decision to charge him in order to come to any firm conclusion. However, given the potential for more deaths if it had been him, I can see why they wanted to operate out of "an abundance of caution"

    And as far as his life being normal, I'm not sure it ever was

    Hell froze over. We agree on something.

    I generally give the feds/LE the benefit of the doubt. We may never know what info they had on this guy. It will be interesting to see where the investigation goes.

    I'm generally pretty critical of the LE community, but I also realize that it's a difficult job that requires judgment. Often they find themselves in a "damned if I do, damned if I don't" situation. I prefer that they exercise caution.
