Off to jail with Donald Currie...

In another triumph for the thin blue line, it's off to prison for 12 years for Donald Currie, due to his rather anti-social tendancies towards arson and the possession of fire bombs.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/6216442.stm

The curious amongst you can watch how Channel 4 and Pro-Test reacted to Currie's guilty plea back in August here http://www.channel4.com/news/special-reports/special-reports-storypage.jsp?id=3037

The occassionally humorous, if tragically misguided, anti-viv Beast had the following to say about the ALF here, in heady days of the first Pro-Test march.

"There’s definitely an object lesson here about how stupid and self-defeating using violence to try to make your point is...the cretins from the ALF set back the very notion of animal rights by decades at a swoop each time they do anything at all. What fuck*ng morons."

Well quite. There are ways of campaigning and ways of campaigning. Bombs = bad, legal campaigning = good. Fortunately for pretty much everyone (researchers, patients, anti-research individuals who don't foam at the mouth), there's been a huge decline in the number of attacks over the last few years. Hopefully by the time Currie gets to appreciate the taste of non-prison food again this trend will have reached its conclusion and the threat of illegal activity simply won't be seen as a viable option. We shall see.
