I reported yesterday on the shameful and criminal firebombing of Dr. Edythe London’s house. One commentator thought I might have jumped to a conclusion. But the despicable ALF has now bragged about their felonious conduct. From the anonymous press release:

After promising to return if she continued torturing non-human primates in her UCLA laboratory, animal liberationists have again targeted the home of notorious primate vivisector Edythe London. According to the Los Angeles Times, an incendiary device damaged her home today; no one was home at the time. London was targeted by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) last October for her role in torturing non-human animals to death in outdated and unnecessary experiments; in that incident, tens of thousands of dollars in damage was reported after her home was flooded by a garden hose. The ALF claimed to target London for her sadistic routine of addicting non-human primates to methamphetamine; she has also published data on primate addiction to nicotine, and addicting baby lambs to cocaine...

Jerry Vlasak, who has justified murdering researchers, commented:

“London’s research is a colossal waste of taxpayer money, and soliciting money from industry groups to study their retail products is considered unethical by most physicians interested in research that might help their patients. Of course, not being a clinician, London appears to have no interest in helping people, but instead derives pleasure in addicting primates to ‘Crystal Meth’ to further her own personal goals of academic and monetary enrichment. This recent attack should come as no surprise to London; I wouldn’t be astonished if she remains a target until she stops her heinous experiments upon these innocent and unconsenting primates.”

Come on, FBI: Catch these creeps. Come on “mainstream” animal rights groups: Loudly condemn these criminals and cooperate with law enforcement to catch and stop them. The peaceability of your movement is at stake.
