W.T.F. Was Boston Animal Defense Thinking ?
23 May 2007
Hey, Let's Bring A Grand Jury To Boston !
Yesterday, two FBI agents along with two Boston cops "visited" our space and wanted to know what our association was with Boston Animal Defense. They said that they had read some of our blogs on Myspace supporting Boston Animal defense ( the fbi monitors Myspace ? Thats a surprise !) and they wanted to know how involved we were with them.

According to the agents, Boston Animal Defense sent a threatening letter to the cop that was responsible for BADL's recent legal issues. The fbi showed us a copy of the letter, but they really didn't give us a chance to fully read it. We told them that we were not associated with Boston animal Defense, and that if they did not have a warrant, they would have to leave.

After we said this, one of the cops who looked really pissed replied "don't worry we're working on getting warrants". They also made references to grand juries and the animal enterprise terrorism act. Before they left, the pissed of cop said something like tell your douche bag friends that they shouldn't make things personal (not an exact quote).

This may be a ploy by the cops to mess with the upcoming HLs tour, but if BADL really did this, WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING ! Boston Animal defense has given us shit in the past about our tactics and mentioning actions THAT WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT BUT NOT PARTICIPATED IN, but we are NOT the ones who are stupid enough to threaten at a cop at her or his house. If they did in fact do this, this is the best way to bring a grand jury to Boston. We support the SHAC 7 too, but we have no desire to be their cell mates ! Getting imprisoned doesn't do anybody any good. BADL are you fucked or what ?

F.B.I. Fucking Bunch of Idiots.

Are you talking about the same FBI that let Whitey Bulger go?
The same Boston FBI that let the IRA, (irish republican army) get guns and monety from Bston?
the same Bston FBI, that never punished prison abuse, in Massachuseets?
the same Boston FBI, with boston and state police, that raped girls, woith whitey bulger...behing two-way morrors?
the same Boston FBI, that , thru lack-of-training...gave two airplanes to terrorists on sept 11.

the same Boston FBI, that had no-idea...terrorists were in Boston, for years,planning to high-jack those planes?

I would assume that the FBI made up the letter or some rightwinger (like BACKSIDE) forged and sent it. Don't fall for COINTELPRO.

I'm pretty sure Flipside didn't write that crap. He signs his name to all his diatribes and usually backs them up with communications he intercepted from those groups, which can be verified. Besides, he just posted an article on BADL here and yesterday. One shouldn't assume.
