The Federal Crackdown on Animal Activists

Will Potter has a not-to-be-missed post on his Green is the New Red blog. He shows how the federal government is using the Animal Terrorist Enterprise Act to seek lengthy prison terms for nonviolent animal protection people. Then, for the sake of comparison, he shows how these punishments compare to sentences handed out for murder, hate crimes, manslaughter, and rape.

Just because you’d never break the law or damage property on behalf of animals doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Link.
