Ricin found in Vegas hotel
This is some nasty stuff these guys are dealing with. There is no real antidote for ricin poisoning. I've only seen it on three occasions in the last twenty years. There was an agent in Britain who was killed with ricin placed inside a tiny steel ball and administered with an umbrella projectile device. It will be interesting to see what this is all about if the truth comes out in the next few weeks.
Sorry my comments on the photo didn't come out large enough (I'm working on it) Decontamination shower on the right. The yellow around their heads and front is duct tape. And notice in the center their boots and gloves are not taped a no no.
