BERKELEY, Calif. - In the hills above the University of California's Berkeley campus, nine protesters gathered in front of the home of a toxicology professor, their faces covered with scarves and hoods despite the warm spring weather.
One scrawled "killer" in chalk on the scientist's doorstep, while another hurled insults through a bullhorn and announced, "Your neighbor kills animals!" Someone shattered a window.
Borrowing the kind of tactics used by anti-abortion demonstrators, animal rights activists are increasingly taking their rage straight to scientists' front doors.And the Animal rights people are just as wrong as the anti-abortion demonstrators as well. It's not their point of view I disagree with. Hell I probably agree with 85% of it. But a criminal act is a criminal act. And this covering your face with scarves is Bush league as well. These people are just as big a chicken shits as the keyboard commandos of LGF or The Free Republic.
