Actress Shannon Richardson arrested for Ricin mailings to Obama, gun control advocates

A b-list actress, Shannon Richardson, was arrested today for allegedly mailing threatening letters with the poison Ricin in them to President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg, and gun control advocate Mark Glaze.

Richardson had earlier contacted the police to report that her husband had sent the mailings, in an effort, authorities say, to frame him.

    lol.. what are you, twelve? thirteen?

  2. SkippyFlipjack says:

    Who else would have believed it if this story had instead been about Shannen Doherty?

    Except when you sit on one.

    Anybody who spells their name jon is disqualified from life.

  5. FLL says:

    All are actresses are liberal, huh? Nancy Reagan had an acting career, not to mention not-so-funny former Saturday Night Live actress, Victoria Jackson. And did you have a career in your village, idiot?

    Uhhh, we already have strict gun control in California. This psycho broke numerous firearm laws already on the books designed to prevent things like this, and no matter what you do people are still going to snap and commit violent acts. Sucks I know, but unfortunately this world can sometimes be a very violent and chaotic place. Best keep your expectations a little more realistic.

  7. Snaggletooth was gay you know says:

    Lke Mr. Heston.

  8. Alex says:

    When do you plan to issue an apology. Nutty libs always jump the gun to blame their enemies. They did it over Boston too. Then when it turned out to be Jihadists they quickly went silent. Without an apology.

  9. karmanot says:

    That was horrible. Glad you are OK FM

  10. karmanot says:

    What does the 14 stand for?—Your IQ, no doubt.

  11. Monoceros Forth says:

    I’m guessing that just because the news stories have said “ricin” there was no actual ricin involved, just some ground-up castor bean.

  12. ComradeRutherford says:

    So a liberal sent poison to Democrats and gun control advocates???

    You are basing this on your incorrect assumption that ALL actors MUST be ‘liberals’.

    Like Jon Voight?

  13. Mike_in_the_Tundra says:

    Interesting assumption. Is that because she is an actress? Wasn’t Ronald Reagan an actor?

  14. Indigo says:

    Crazy Lady goes crazy? Or is she one of those Reaganistic nut jobs that mar the Gollywood scene?

  15. jon14 says:

    So it was a dumbass liberal after all

  16. ckg1 says:

    Apparently, Ms. Richardson forgot one thing…


    (Or to USE hers….)

  17. mwestport says:

    The sheer stupidity of these ricin crimes always amaze me.

    1. You are never going to infected your intended victims.

    2, You will be caught and spend many, many years in a Federal Penitentiary .

    Is this another one from Texas?

  18. pappyvet says:

    I do wonder,where did she get the Ricin? A dose the size of a few grains of table salt can kill an adult human. It does take some work to create it from the castor oil bean. I cant wait to hear the rest of the story.

  19. BeccaM says:

    Now we know why zombies are so keen on brains. This one clearly misplaced hers.

  20. Snaggletooth says:

    Tell me the story about those Hollywood liberals again…

  21. FunMe says:

    These gun advocates are CRAZY!

    Meanwhile, here in my town of Santa Monica there is another shooting rampage that just happened 6 hours ago in several streets of our city. The shooter had a K47 and ammunition who killed 6 people and injured many others. The police chased him and ended up killing him at Santa Monica College.

    We need gun control now! These senseless killings have go to stop.

    Seriously? I suspect this woman needs help cracking an egg.
