Its has come to the realization of many that PeTA will exploit about anything, religion, manipulation of truth, inventing PCRM and they never miss a beat.
We saw "Holocaust on Your Plate" to offend the Jewish Community, Jesus carrying a cross wearing a Pig Head for the Christians, a black man hanging in a photo in a racial murder (lynching) to an already dead cow being prepared for slaughter in "Animal Liberation". They made "milk Stealing Ming" and "Diabetic Diane" to depict an Asian child attempting to get milk from a cow and Dianne is a child using insulin IV to deal with Juvenile Diabetes PeTA/PCRM implies is caused by milk.
Type I Diabetes is not caused from milk; but lets not digress. They used Mayor Giuliani to ask "Got Prostrate Cancer" and David Duke the leader of the KKK with a statement "the whit stuff ain't the right stuff" as some way to compare racism to lactose intolerance. Maybe you had to work for PeTA to get that one but I tend to imagine they don't even know.
PeTA in all it's vast wisdom, before Mr. Jackson is buried, before any care has been made for his children, before a public funeral of mourning....well they want a piece of the money pie.....err excuse me they want it for the animals.
PeTA has asked the Jackson family in writing for the rights to the song "Ben" so they can stop "animal research that uses rats".
Oddly they did not ask Mr. Jackson an animal lover, before he died.
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA — The scene is reminiscent of a B-list action flick: anonymous masked intruders sneak into some important building, scrawl crude handwritten threats demanding unrealistic accommodations and leave an incendiary device meant to detonate the next morning as employees walk in for their daily shifts, before fleeing into the night.
Unfortunately for many UC scientists and students, situations like these are very real and come at the hands of backward, crazed organizations such as the Animal Liberation Front, which is filled with screwball activists who among other actions advocate the release of lab animals nationwide via intimidating and often frightening guerilla tactics meant to incite fear among researchers.
In fact, several failed fire-bombings aside, high-profile instances of violent backlashes by animal-rights activists against UC personnel within the last few years include the flooding of a UCLA researcher’s home with a garden hose — an action that caused nearly $30,000 in damages — and a terrifying incident in Santa Cruz during which a scientist’s husband was attacked by a group of intruders who interrupted her daughter’s birthday party demanding the researcher cease her lab’s groundbreaking breast-cancer studies.
Letters filled with razor blades, firecrackers set in mailboxes and vandalism are common tactics used by ALF goons to intimidate scientists, and it was just last December that animal-rights operatives called in a bomb threat at UCSD’s Leichtag Biomedical Research Building, a stunt that forced the FBI to evacuate the entire School of Medicine and shut down a large portion of campus before ultimately being deemed a hoax.
The sad reality is that the groups’ extremism is getting progressively worse, with some militants who formerly only protested the use of nonhuman primates and dogs now calling on labs to stop using fruit flies in their experiments.
Responding to these increasingly brazen moves, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law this month a long-overdue measure to shield scientists from attacks by animal-rights activists, finally safeguarding the welfare of hundreds of researchers who use animal subjects in their laboratories and providing more stringent oversight of personal information used by groups such as ALF to carry out the cowardly attacks.
Specifically, the legislation protects statewide academic researchers, which it deems as “any person lawfully engaged in academic research who is a student, trainee or employee of UC, CSU, an accredited California community college or a Western Association of Schools and Colleges accredited, degree-granting, nonprofit institution.”
By granting protection to students in addition to researchers, lawmakers have successfully proved that they are serious about putting a stop to these militant zookeepers, at last shielding the most vulnerable targets — future scientists who might otherwise be scared away from the field — from potential harm.
Moreover, the law forbids the publication of private information about — and physical appearances of — researchers and their immediate families with the intent to commit a violent act or threats of violence, and against trespassing on scientists’ private property to commit such crimes, while also increasing penalties for offenders.
The University of California is an institution driven forward by its scientists, who secure grants and eventually publish their work, in effect branding the university’s name across academia. Animal research is always conducted humanely and only when absolutely necessary, while experimental protocol is strictly outlined by federal government regulations. From antibiotics to joint replacement, the vast majority of modern-day medical techniques dictating the treatment and control of disease are derived from knowledge gained by the results of experiments that used laboratory animals. The new law will permit scientists to continue this important work without worrying about their cars being fire-bombed.
Animal-rights extremists portray scientists as vicious torturers, but that assertion is ludicrous; these researchers have dedicated their lives to finding new medical breakthroughs meant to improve the lives of both humans and other animals. By signing this law, Schwarzenegger has proved his commitment to making sure these vital experiments continue. Hopefully, the lunatics from ALF and similar groups will realize that their pet projects will now lead them straight into the waiting jaws of law enforcement officials.

WINTON - Did PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) employees in Virginia step outside the bounds of federal law by euthanizing animals in North Carolina?
According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the answer is yes.
During testimony on Thursday in Hertford County Criminal Superior Court, DEA Supervisor Brian Reise testified that PETA employees Adria Hinkle and Andrew Cook were not licensed to handle, transport or administer a controlled substance in North Carolina.
Hinkle and Cook are on trial for 21 felony counts each of cruelty to animals as well as other charges following their June 15, 2005 arrests in Ahoskie. There they allegedly dumped bags of dead dogs in a dumpster at a private business after euthanizing animals they picked up earlier that same day from the Bertie County Animal Shelter.
The drug in question is Pentobarbital, a barbiturate anesthetic which causes respiratory and cardiac arrest in as little as 30 seconds after a dose is administered. It is widely used by veterinarians and animal hospitals as well as private pet owners, as long as each has DEA certification to do so.
In the local criminal case against Hinkle and Cook, Reise said he looked into PETA’s authority to administer controlled substances. Under oath he testified that PETA held a valid DEA certification in Virginia, but were not registered to handle, transport or administer a controlled substance, such as Pentobarbital, in North Carolina.
He said the PETA office in Norfolk, Va. had renewed their original 1999 DEA registration/certification in 2002 and again in 2006.
Under cross examination by Lisa Stevenson, one of Hinkle’s defense attorneys, she made reference to a portion of the DEA Regulations Book that basically read if a valid DEA certificate was held by a business, the agents of that employer do not have to personally have a DEA certificate in the normal course of their jobs.
While Reise said that was true, he directed Stevenson’s attention to a DEA policy that said the certification is non-transferable of business activity or change in location.
District 6B Attorney Valerie Mitchell Asbell was given an opportunity to re-direct the questioning of Reise.
“For an employer or an agent of that employer to administer a controlled substance in North Carolina, they must have a DEA registration in North Carolina,” she asked, to which Reise replied in the affirmative.
In similar testimony, Kenneth Wheeler, an investigator with the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board, told Asbell that following his investigation of PETA, neither Hinkle nor Cook was licensed to practice veterinary medicine in North Carolina.
When asked what the duties are of a licensed veterinarian, Wheeler said they give vaccinations, administer drugs and perform surgery.
Stevenson, in her cross examination of Wheeler, asked if there were exceptions to the state’s Veterinary Practices Act, to which Wheeler said yes.
She asked if one of those exceptions dealt with the fact that if a person had title or ownership of an animal, weren’t they allowed to euthanize that animal by using a controlled substance. Wheeler answered yes.
In her re-direct, Asbell asked Wheeler if a pet owner was allowed to administer Pentobarbital. Wheeler answered yes, but added they must have a valid DEA certification to administer that drug.
PeTA used a trash dumpster as an adoption center on June 15 2005 in Ahoskie NC.
19 months later after 7 postponements PeTA will be in court in NC on Monday when jury selection starts, they face 50 felony charges, 44 felony animal abuse that can carry a 30 month prison term per charge.
They have no right to kill healthy animals they took with the promise of homes, at least they could tell the truth. The animals never even made it to PeTA headquaters in Virginia where they were to be so warmly received, they were killed in the parking lots where they were picked up for adoption in North Carolina.
Killed using drugs they had no legal right to possess or use in NC.
We have a few more days to get signatures and we are humbled at the positive response shown the 31 Ahoskie animals who were shamelessly killed.
The animals thank those from Care2 as well as those animal groups who have signed in hardcopy, there are thousands. We ask PeTA have you heard us now?
In seven days jury selection will begin (hopefully) for the PeTA animal abuse case in Ahoskie NC.
PeTA has hired some very big gun lawyers to defend Hinkle & Cook, they are paying the 4 lawyers with the money you donated to help animals, along with the fact they used $70,000 of your donated money to bail Hinkle & Cook out of jail is seems PeTA uses your money as they choose, not for animals.
To me if I were PeTA and had no knowledge of their employees actions I sure would have never bailed them out of jail much less pay Washington DC lawyers to defend them; apparently PeTA has realized they are in trouble and has called out their version of OJ's dream team. OJ got off legally but not civilly, reality is his win destroyed his image and PeTA is already suffering from their heinous illegal actions in Ahoskie.
You may agree or disagree with me but there is no disputing the fact PeTA had no license to possess or administer the drugs they used in North Carolina. There is no dispute PeTA promised the animals homes and no dispute they lied to animal control and told them they were "sedating" the animals for the ride when in fact they were killing them. There is no dispute they threw 31 dead animals in the garbage on one single day, hundreds of animals lives have ended with the same fate at PeTAs hand.
So I ask you a simple question if someone promised to take pups from a litter your dog had, took them to their van and killed them drove off and threw them in the closest trash bin what would you do?
When SHAC successfully stopped the listing on the New York Stock Exchange of Life Sciences Research, LSR, parent company of HLS, Huntingdon Life Sciences, ARAs cheered. They cheered SHAC's harassment and tertiary terrorist acts to achieve a goal guised in the cloak of animal rights.
Animal Rights was not their true agenda, power was, and with PeTA's help a billboard went up in Times Square with masked ALF (appearing) people wearing hoods declaring we control Wall Street.
I remember the jubilance and way to go SHAC, way to go ALF, way to go PeTA, no one listened to the other side.
AETA had sat dormant for over 12 years, and many times with the attacks done by animal rights groups it reared its head. The constant approval of people carrying out violence, people were warned they were stirring a pot they will regret. AETA passed the Senate and hindsight like scrambling rats there was a push to write your representatives to stop AETA in the House. It passed the House with only one no vote. Then there was another scramble to stop the signing and Veto the bill, pretty funny considering the ARA's cause the action and Bush Sr. started the bill.
Today Wall Street has a new listing, LSR, Huntington's parent company, so what the aggression did was make AETA go from a bill to a law, quell the activists and start placing many in jail, along with listing a major research group on the stock exchange all in about a year.
Now AETA is in place and already being used, I hope I do not have to see people who support aggression and feel violation of AETA is somehow a way to get accepted in your clique', for if you cross that line just like those who allegedly contaminate POM juice you will go to jail, and you will go for a long time.
Those of you whose arrogance blinds you need to look at reality, what your actions are effect you and your family. There are many aggressive ARA's sitting in jail right now looking at the fact they abandoned their own children, now at Christmas their kids are alone because their parent did not listen and refused to work for legal change. They placed the value of a mouse above that of the future of their own family, they lost.
Do you want your child to face the same?
Work within the system and produce change that lasts, violence and threats against legal use of animals in labs will personally harm you and your family. Be smart and this holiday season change your tactics use your brains, this is the best Christmas or New Years Advice I can give any who still remain blind to reality.
