The Los Angeles County grand jury indicted each defendant on three counts of conspiracy to commit stalking, three counts of stalking and two counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of threatening a public officer or school employee.

Animal rights activists continue to be taken into custody for their violent crimes. Law enforcement has done an excellent job of identifying these criminals even though they are involved with the shadow group Animal Liberation Front. And here is the question of the day: Since many of these animal rights activists believe that animals have the same emotional depth as humans, do you think the animal kingdom is grieving, sad, angry or experiencing some other emotional feeling today since they got caught?
