TRENTON, N.J. - Three animal-welfare activists whose Web site led to<br><br>
the harassment of employees of a company that tests products on<br><br>
animals were sentenced to between four and six years in federal prison<br><br>
on Tuesday.<br><br><br><br>
They also were ordered to pay a total of $1 million in restitution to<br><br>
the company and people they terrorized.<br><br><br><br>
Three other members of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty were expected to<br><br>
be sentenced within the next two weeks.<br><br>
...<br><br>
The three sentenced on Tuesday include the president of SHAC, Kevin<br><br>
Kjonaas of Minnesota; campaign coordinator Lauren Gazzola, of<br><br>
Connecticut; and Web site manager Jacob Conroy, of California. All<br><br>
three were given 30 days to surrender to the U.S. Marshals Office.<br><br><br><br>
Kjonaas was sentenced to six years in prison, Gazzola to 52 months,<br><br>
and Conroy was sentenced to four years. Each must serve 85 percent of<br><br>
their sentence and, once they are released, three years of probation.<br><br><br><br>
Those still awaiting sentencing include:<br><br><br><br>
_ Joshua Harper, SHAC's West Coast coordinator.<br><br><br><br>
_ Andrew Stepanian, SHAC's New York coordinator.<br><br><br><br>
_ Darius Fullmer, an organizer who researched SHAC targets.<br><br><br><br>

Or, you know, you could use your imagination. But perhaps I assume too much.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, what is with "animal-welfare activists"? Since when does AW try to prevent testing?

Uh. I think the welfare part would be preventing the animals from being harmed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"><br><br><br><br>
While I agree with their end goal, I cannot endorse their methods, however.

She did speak English. The problem is that you are unable to understand people when they don't spell or use punctuation EXACTLY as you are used to them spelling. I wonder how you manage when there are people whose mother tongue is not English.<br><br><br><br>
I will translate for you because I feel sorry for you that you can't see outside of your box: "Ha ha! That's so funny!!! You must have experience with those products you are sending, Tame."<br><br><br><br>
Is that better?

Maybe huntingdon will at least think about what they are doing. I can't see how these issues wouldn't be addressed by the higher ups of this co. That's something. I'm curious about the employees that were targeted.

Much. Now I can report it as a personal attack from vegania.

I will continue to support them.<br><br><br><br>
I would encourage supporters to send them letters as I'm sure they would appreciate it.
