Less than expected, more than necessary

CBRN heroine Amber Cummings received a one year sentence for the fatal shooting of her abusive, but most importantly potential radiological terrorist, husband. As reported in February 2009 after one beating too many Amber shot and killed her husband James and investigators found that the white supremacist had enough radiological material gathered to set off all radiological detectors that would attend the scene of the explosion – but not provide a dangerous level of radiological material.

While she didn’t intend to thwart the attack her actions may have saved lives, but will have undoubtedly retained a better quality of life for many people.
