    No pity for the ricin subject, but this is a serious erosion of our liberties. The government is tracking not only every phone call we make but every letter we send. The ends do not justify the means.

    Smoking Gun: Ricin Suspect Was Tracked Via Mail Scanners - Feds: Postal Service photographs every piece of mail it processes

    According to FBI Agent James Spiropoulos, investigators accessed a Postal Service computer system that “incorporates a Mail Isolation Control and Tracking (MICT) program which photographs and captures an image of every mail piece that is processed.” Agents were able to obtain front and back images of about 20 mail pieces that had been processed “immediately before the mail piece addressed to Mayor Bloomberg.”

    So we've spent hundreds of billions turning our country into a big prison so we can catch a loser like this actress who did nothing of any consequence?

    what a nightmare.

    When I was a kid I grew caster bean plants. Wonder what would happen if I ordered some seeds today? Probably have a small army taking up position outside.
