Bruce Ivins was suspected of being the anthrax killer and recently committed suicide. Ivins was a Ph.D. MICROBIOLOGIST who worked for the U.S. military and according to his therapist was a SOCIOPATH and HOMICIDAL KILLER.
Just how much damage could a sociopathic, homicidal killing microbiologist do? If the blind idiot God of evolution can develop microorganisms that kill millions, what could an observant, intelligent microbiologist accomplish?
Should governments perhaps force all microbiologists to be evaluated to determine if they are sociopaths? After all, if employees of the Department of Commerce have to undergo background checks before they can see classified commerce related information, shouldn’t microbiologists be subject to some kind of governmental screening process?
