DOMESTIC TERRORISM UPDATE: Animal Rights Activist Pleads Guilty in Wayne State Case. “An animal rights activist, Camille Marino, has pleaded guilty to trespass and unlawful posting of a message with aggravating circumstances, The Detroit Free Press reported. Marino was arrested in May when she chained herself to the doors of the library at Wayne State University. She had been posting messages online in which she said that a Wayne State researcher who works with animals — whom she named, listing his home and office addresses and phone numbers — should be tortured.”

UPDATE: A reader emails: “This animal rights extremist also harassed 3 scientists at the University of Florida. I am one of them. These are very sad people. They feel harassment of scientists and their families is legitimate ‘direct democracy’ or something like that. How they help animals is a mystery to me and others. A Steve Best at the University of Texas El Paso is the main cheerleader of these groups, but he has had to get a personal protection order against Marino himself when she started threatening him! He cannot take it! Rather fun to watch the cannibals eat each other.”
