    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.

    Animal rights activists are increasingly taking their rage to scientists' front doors.

    Over the past couple of years, more researchers who experiment on animals have been harassed and terrorized in their homes, with weapons that include firebombs, flooding and acid.

    Scientists say the vandalism and intimidation threaten themselves, their families and the future of medical research. Specialists in fields such as addiction, eyesight and the aging brain have been targeted.

    "It used to be everyone was worried about their laboratories being broken into and their data being destroyed, their animals being taken away," said Jeffrey Kordower, head of the Society for Neuroscience's animal research committee. "What they've decided to do now is make things more personal."

    Accompanying the attacks is increasingly tough talk from activists such as Jerry Vlasak, a spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front press office. In an interview with the Associated Press, he said he is not encouraging anyone to commit homicide, but "if you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable."

    The Washington-based Foundation for Biomedical Research said researchers were harassed or otherwise victimized more than 70 times in 2003, up from 10 a year earlier. The number of attacks has held steady or risen since, according to the group.

    Activists say the escalation in tactics results from a frustration that nonviolent methods have failed to stop what they call the needless torture and killing of animals.

    ......
    As soon as they broke his window they committed an assault upon his home and he should by law, at the very least, be allowed to hold a firearm aimed at them with no legal consequences. It could have been a bomb or incendiary device or that could have come next. No one should be able to get away with these barbaric assaults upon a person's home like these eco terrorists do.
    .............................................
    The good prof needs to get himself a 12 Gauge Mossberg and keep it loaded. The next time those "animal advocates" cross the line and threatens his family, he should unload a couple of slugs into their backsides. Oh I forgot...this is Bezerkly we are taking about. I bet the local cops would probably lock him up if he were to do that. "Wolves don't hunt when the sheep are armed." - Thomas Jefferson.

    One of their favorite tactics is to wait till the researcher leaves for work, or on vacation and then smash out a window and run their garden hose(s) in with the water running full blast.

    Or to figure out what school their kids go to and picket during release time with signs of dead animals that little Billy So And So's Mommy or Daddy murders widdle animals for a living.

    They also loot mailboxes for credit card offers and fill them out. Donations are then sent to the tune of what the credit limit on the account will bear.

    And set mail boxes, cars and outside stored items on fire.

    And in the state I live in I have no rights to do anything except call the cops. I could watch someone prepare a Molotov and until they actually threw the thing I would be looking at charges if I confronted them with a gun and shot them before they could set our garage or house on fire. I would be held actionable if I step outside my house to do ANYTHING, armed or not.

    And these coc*suckers have more rights on their side to stage protests outside our home than we have to make them stop.

    F*ck 'em in the heart and may they all die of cancer denied the medicine that could help them because they wouldn't want a pain killer or an anti nausea drug that had been tested on animals, would they?

    Jerry Vlasak should get humped to death by pissed off gorillas. May he rot in hell when it happens too.

    Kind of explains why embryonic stem cell research looks "promising." They won't get killed for destroying humans the way they could for experimenting on animals. Weird priorities...

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
