    Thanks to the TV liars, the news, this man is ruined. I for one and many like me believed you NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, we believed you and now think the government is making you retract. But we will always know this man is a terrorist!!! And if needed I will testify that after seeing the news on this, I cannot think of this man in any way other than a terrorist. Should be a slam dunk lawsuit for him, and teach the news a lesson about running their mouths when they should be reporting the news.

    Technically they were reporting the news when they said this man was charged. The corporate media really sucks but it was the government who dropped the ball on this one.

    Zero television is the way of the future. I rather be posting online instead of looking at bs on television. Everything is on the internet.

    I hardly ever believe anything the MSM or any other media says. They all lie, manipulate, and fabricate things to fit their agendas. Research everything. Take everything with a grain of salt. Especially since Digital TV was mandated!

    What else can we expect? We have no investigative reporters that know how to ferret out the truth any more and if we did they would not be allowed to print it.

    @AntiPorcheria I don't know how many lines of script it took but there was a description of the dropped charges, search warrants executed without findings, etc. As for apology, why would that be expected? People are wrongfully imprisoned every day, many for years, and are quietly released without apology or fanfare. In this instance some reports suggest this guy was framed. In his place, I'd pass on the apology in order to see the guy who framed me in lockup.

    @DARSB - Defamation of character? How many people saw the initial capture report and headlines vs how much energy is spent reporting the retraction?

    I suppose I would kick up a stink and demand air time to salvage my business reputation.

    @PoliticalSpice sent the letters. It makes as much sense as what you said. That was a ridiculous argument

    @GvtMule Look in the 50's members of the communist party were arrested, hounded out of their jobs just for being communist. In the 60's and 70's people were targeted ny the FBI and police, many were out and out murdered some were framed for crimes they never committed -- for being members of the black panthers, or active in the anti- war movement, in 1980 five communist were shot to death by a kkk nazi group who were imfiltrated by agents of both the FBI and AFT. These are facts. I have no problem with targeting right wingers for similar treatment, some of whom have posted on this very site that they will go to civil war against the u.s. , that they supported bush's war against Iraq, and that left wingers, immigrants and others they dislike should be shot, killed etc. I for one think right wingers deserve the same treatment the left have been subjected to for decades...

    @PopapillRush I just hope that he wasn't singing "Love Me Tender" in the prison shower lest he get himself a hunk a hunk of burning love.

    Who the heck knows if the guy was "punked" by some prankster or not, or even by some LSM operator at the US Post Service. Look at the moron that faked that tweet about the White House being attacked. Too many people who don't use their free time constructively, if you ask me.

    @Vance1 How about all of those accused wherein they don't drop charges later due to the low-profile nature of the matter?

    I'd be more worried they "catch" the wrong people! I thought they got their man awfully fast when they announced they caught this guy. How in the heck can anyone trace an anonymous letter! They cannot!

    You would think that after the Richard Jewel fiasco that the gov't would be a bit more careful about charging people with crimes until they had enough facts to make the charge stick. Let's just hope they get whoever it was that really did it.

    so, they kept him for nearly a week before setting bond and why again was he arrested since they had no evidence whatsoever? charges dropped without prejudice and now they are alleging not only do they possibly have another named suspect, but, also there have been other ricin incidences.

    no, this is a bit whacky.

    @Concerned_Cit hard to say, they definitely jumped the gun and "without prejudice" means he isn't out of the woods and all relevant statutes of limitation apply

    LMAO.. why is everybody's panties in a bunch.. it said the man ACCUSED that doesnt mean he's guilty, the Media has a tendency to want to report first which causes them to report on unsubstantiated information.. they keep jumping the gun, all it would take is less sensationalized headlines for one.. and why is it always a government conspiracy with you guys?..smh

    I want to know how the government zeroes in on someone so quickly and drags them into custody without any real proof of having committed a crime. THAT is scary. If it could happen to this guy, it could happen to any of us.

    I sometimes wonder if what we say here on this forum isn't being monitored. Could something we say here come back to haunt us? Is freedom of speech really free?

    Anyone remember Richard Jewell? That man was hounded and accused and locked up and treated worse than the REAL bomber who was eventually caught years later.

    What happens if, for the sake of convenience, someone is simply accused and tossed into prison? Would any of us question their innocence or would we be glad the "culprit" was off the street and move on? I can see justice slithering down the drain.

    Of course,who else would want to kill Obama more than a white guy? Looks like a little racial profileing to me,what do ya think? This is what I would be screaming if I was Mr Curtis.

    So, why was this guy charged in the first place? I'm only interested enough to ask here as opposed to researching myself. Though, I'm repeating Paul Kevin Curtis (all three given names) in order to try to memorize it as an examples of a man wrongly accused.
