The Worst Possible Use of a Karate Dojo

What a dumbshit

What a dumbshit

Recapping a week from hell recently; The Boston Marathon bombing, the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, Someone shot at a power plant in California, and another at a Tennessee Nuclear plant, and finally the delivery of toxic Ricin letters to President Obama and other public officials:

Ricin found in dojo of man charged with attempting to frame Elvis impersonator

Traces of ricin were found in the martial arts studio of a US man charged in a bizarre plot to send poisoned letters to President Barack Obama and other public officials, the FBI said Tuesday.

The letters were intercepted as the nation was still reeling from the Boston Marathon bombings, but the nerve-wracking plot took a strange turn last week when it turned out that the motivation was likely revenge, not terrorism.

James Everett Dutschke, 41, is accused of trying to frame a fellow Mississippi man with whom he’d had what the FBI described as a “contentious relationship.” At first, the alleged plan seemed to have worked.

Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, was arrested after officials found that the ricin-laced letters contained the title of a book he was writing about an alleged black market for human body parts.

The letters were also littered with phrases Curtis used on his Facebook page and in correspondence with the Mississippi senator who was also targeted.

Curtis immediately pointed the finger at his rival and the FBI turned its attention to Dutschke, who also had a long-standing dispute with a Mississippi judge who was among the three targets of the poisoned letters.

Dutschke apparently got nervous after defense attorneys blamed him publically for the plot and an FBI agent testified that no ricin was found in Curtis’s home.

But he didn’t notice the FBI agents who were following him as he went to his former Taekwondo dojo on April 22 to pick up a coffee grinder — which can be used to extract ricin from castor beans — a dust mask and latex gloves.

He was spotted dumping them out the window of his van into a public garbage bin about 100 yards away, charging papers said.

The FBI picked them out of the trash and also collected the contents of the bin outside Dutschke’s house. Many of the items tested positive for ricin, as did the drain traps at the dojo, the charging papers said.

Dutschke also tried to wipe his computer clean of any traces of his research by reinstalling the operating system on April 22.

But the computer had already been searched by state police after he was arrested in January on child molestation charges.

So the FBI was able to detect that he’d downloaded two documents describing the safe handling and detection of ricin on December 31.

They also found records that Dutschke ordered 100 red castor beans off eBay in November and December.

“I understand that the number of castor beans ordered is more than sufficient to extract the quantity of ricin found in the three letters,” Special Agent Stephen Thomason wrote.

Dutschke faces up to life in prison if convicted of “knowingly developing, producing, stockpiling, transferring, acquiring, retaining and possessing a biological agent, toxin and delivery system, for use as a weapon.”

  • Review: Ukraine In The Crossfire
    I was very pleased to get a copy of “Ukraine In The Crossfire”, by Chris Kaspar De Ploeg. This book catalogs the rise of the nationalist far-right Nazis in Ukraine, as well as their well known WW 2 history. This book is an important reference for the set-up of Ukraine as a U.S./NATO pawn, who […]
  • Review: “States Of Emergency”
    There is some surprisingly good analysis appearing that goes a long way to explaining just how we ended up in this global meltdown, and from several sources I am reading, it appears to be on purpose. One such resource is the new book “States Of Emergency” by a Dutch professor named Kees Van Der Pijl. […]
  • The Civil War In The United States – By Marx & Engels
    I should start by saying that this is the first I have read of Marx, and honestly I haven’t studied deep into the American Civil War, so this book was very interesting to me. The book consists of written exchanges between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, with a few others. It also includes passages from […]

Don’t get me wrong, I was pretty entertained by Zada’s navigating the isolated native communities of the British Columbia coast. Zada, (self-described from big-city Toronto) is a good writer, and […]
