Thanks to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, dedicated animal rights activists Kevin Olliff and Tyler Lang are considered “eco-terrorists,” or just “terrorists” in modern America, for freeing 2,000 mink and fox from fur farms in the midwest.
Will Potter from Green is the New Red reports:
[Tyler] Lang was arrested outside of a Veggie Grill restaurant in Los Angeles on Thursday. He had arrived to prepare for a fundraiser at the restaurant to benefit the Bunny Alliance, an animal rights group with which he volunteers.
While Lang avoided serious jail time, his compatriot Olliff is already serving a 30-month jail sentence in Illinois for having been found with boltcutters in his Prius.
If Olliff and Lang are convicted, they could face fines of up to $250,000 and up to five years in federal prison.
I take this kind of information very seriously, but I have to wonder how ridiculous authorities felt for rolling up to the Veggie Grill to arrest someone peacefully convening on behalf of The Bunny Alliance.
Veggie Grill? Bunny Alliance? These terrorists are heavily unarmed and extremely peaceful.
