Daily Mail reports:
A neuroscientist who conducts experiments on animals was targeted by activists who sent him razor blades allegedly contaminated with the HIV virus, it has been revealed.
University of California at Los Angeles scientist David Jentsch received the razors and a threatening note in a package sent to his home.
The Animal Liberation Front of North America said in a statement the package was sent by the ‘UCLA Justice Department’.
The exact nature of Mr Jentsch’s work is unknown but is thought to involve primate vivisection and the study of drug addiction.
‘The Justice Department at UCLA sent bloody AIDS tainted razor blades to David Jentsch at [his home address]; instead he should be living in hell which is where he will eventually end up desirably sooner rather than later,’ said the statement.
I wonder if that’s a different hell than the one filled with monsters that send razors to people with deadly diseases on them. The group has stated that they’re quite willing to use violence to attain their goals.
As of now, I’ve just seen nine news reports about this story. Just imagine for a moment the media firestorm that would be taking place if this were sent by pro-lifers to an abortionist.
We’d have news reports, news specials, a news conference from the President, commentators blaming Sarah Palin, Briston Palin, and Willow too just because, and possibly new laws outlawing pro-lifers from buying razor blades. But as long as its threats and violence in the name of cute animals (rather than little humans) it elicits slightly more than a shrug and a yawn.
