In case you hadn’t heard, a UCLA researcher had his car firebombed recently. You can get the story here.
The firebombing is one in a series of aggressive acts aimed at university researchers who use animals in medical studies, UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton said. In other cases, firebombs have been left on doorsteps and in homes, vehicles have been vandalized and researchers have received threatening phone calls and e-mails.
I always find it amusing how these animal extremist psychos don’t seem to care about the possibility of innocent humans getting caught up in their little incendiary pastimes. No wait, it’s not funny at all, because innocent people are innocent animals as well, but apparently they don’t count for some cryptic reason. Maybe little Julie or Timmy had the misfortune to be born into a family with a researcher in it. To bad, so sad. Up in flames.
Which makes those self-loathing ALF dingleberries a bunch of hypocritical douchenozzles. But, it’s good to see that this particular form of terrorism is finally getting taken seriously–
Eimiller said the investigation of Saturday’s incident will be conducted by a Joint Terrorism Task Force that includes the FBI, the LAPD, the Los Angeles Fire Department, the UCLA Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The Animal Liberation Front posted a message on its website Monday from a group that claimed responsibility for the firebombing.
UCLA is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the incident.
If you know anything, turn these assholes in.
