110. " history of making homicidal threats" - Background check?
Edited on Sat Aug-02-08 08:33 PM by autorank
NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/02/us/02scientist.html?e...

"After Dr. Ivins made the threats on July 9 about killing his co-workers, he was detained while at work and taken to a hospital before being transferred to a nearby psychiatric hospital. He was later released, but forbidden from going to Fort Detrick.

"Ms. Duley said that Dr. Ivins had a history of making homicidal threats that dated to his college days. But several of Dr. Ivinss co-workers said that while he clearly was devastated after he was singled out for possible prosecution, that does not mean he was involved in the attack."

OK, so we've got a guy who is in an ultra secure lab handling highly toxic substances:

"Ms. Duley said that Dr. Ivins had a history of making homicidal threats that dated to his college days."

But that never came up in a background check, one can assume, since hopefully, they would have hauled
him out of there. It could have been missed by poor investigation too.
