Animal Rights extremists convicted

Sounds like the jury sided on the side of justice here.

The federal government charged that SHAC waged a five-year campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences, posting on its Web site information about the lab's employees and those who do business with Huntingdon, including home phone numbers, addresses and where their children attended school.

Many of those people's homes were vandalized, and they and their families received threatening e-mails, faxes and phone calls. Many were also besieged by protesters parading with photos of mutilated animals and screaming "Puppy killer!" through megaphones at all hours outside their homes.

Yet the group is claiming their rights are being infringed upon. Right.
