FBI finds ricin in raid of San Francisco apartment, manhunt begins
Fox News ^ | 6-1-14 | Fox News

Posted on 06/01/2014 11:14:51 AM PDT by dynachrome

The FBI is looking for a man who lives in the San Francisco apartment where agents found a large stash of what appears to be the deadly poison ricin.

On Saturday, FBI agents searched the apartment, which belongs to Ryan Chamberlain, according to KGO, an ABC affiliate. The FBI said Chamberlain could be armed and dangerous.

The apartment search was expected to resume Sunday.

Chamberlain owns a Nissan that reportedly could be rigged with explosives.

The FBI did not evacuate apartments during the search, and FBI spokeswoman Alice Heller said there was “no threat to public safety.” She said agents were wearing protective equipment for their safety.

You mean somebody with that name couldn’t possibly be a terrorist? There’s a lot of weird people stewing out there.

Well gee, a description of the perp and a better description of his car might help.

I like this from the article:

FBI spokeswoman Alice Heller said there was “no threat to public safety.”

and:

Chamberlain owns a Nissan that reportedly could be rigged with explosives.

Ricin Roney? The San Francisco tweet?

“KGO said the amount of ricin found is the largest ever seen before in the city.”

So how much ricin do they usually find?

For them to be calling this ricin, without any chemical confirmatory evidence, means that this was likely a tip of sorts (unless they had some reason to have been watching this guy). I'll wait for chemical confirmatory evidence before getting too concerned.

“Ricin Roney? The San Francisco tweet?”

That's pathetic, but that I got it immediately and was amused is probably more pathetic.

Probably a packet of Castor Bean plant seeds he bought on-line for about $3.

They are pretty plants. Little big for an apartment, though.

Fox News says he is a political junkie.

There is a LinkedIn profile for a Ryan Chamberlain in San Fran with a MA degree “Political Campaigning Program” from University of Florida.

Too early to say if this is him.

“Chamberlain is reportedly a “political junkie” with a criminal record of minor infractions.”

To be serious, perhaps an OWS type?

BS-o-meter is indeed detecting something... How many times are the initial reports wrong when they found “an arsenal of assault rifles or explosives” and end up being nothing. Just a few .22 riles and a some fireworks.
We’ll see if this is still ricin in the next press release.

Not much insight here I’d say but perhaps a picture. Again, disclaimer, at this stage we don’t know.

““grassroots building and community organization.”

One can make some observations, I will wait a bit...

Gators, Niners, Giants, Cyclones (Iowa) is all mentioned on his alleged twitter... to me it looks like it could be fantasy sports but I don’t know.

https://twitter.com/poliholic (at the top)

From scanning all this, I don’t see immediate crackpot stuff, also mentioned “Game of Thrones”, I know little about that.

On Twitter, allegedly He talks about March Madness, NCAA, “fight, fight, fight for Iowa State”, guy must have gone to both Universities, he mentions Gators, “Gatahs” too. Whatever, may be weird stuff, don’t know if it is crackpot stuff.

Ah, he shows his thinking a little here, quoting from his alleged twitter

According to The Gateway Pundit, this Chamberlain is a Leftist, Global Warming fruitcake. And just when I was about to blame the TEA party . . . Wait, the TEA party drove him to it. He is just trying to save the earth.

It's hard to square
"no threat to public safety"

with

agents were wearing protective equipment for their safety

and

Chamberlain could be armed and dangerous

and

Chamberlain owns a Nissan that reportedly could be rigged with explosives.

I think that the threat is exaggerated and misleading, because that's what both the FBI and the press do. (What does "could be rigged with explosives" mean exactly? Any car "could" be rigged with explosives.)

and how would the FBI know/worry about an explosive rigged car? They aren’t telling everything found at his apt.

I did go through the alleged twitter a few times, talks about sports more than anything but mentions heroin a few times, maybe a codename for the ricin?? Just my speculation because otherwise, he doesn’t mention anything like that.

Something strange here. There may be more than one Ryan Chamberlain, and some of the news services might have put up a picture of the wrong one.
