Professor Stands Up to Animal Rights Extremists

Professor Stands Up to Animal Rights Extremists
April 13, 2009

Many professors attacked by animal rights extremists have taken the approach of becoming as invisible as possible. But a profile in today's Los Angeles Times looks at a professor at the University of California at Los Angeles who is taking the opposite approach -- organizing a campus protest against the violent acts being committed by animal rights extremists.

"People always say: 'Don't respond. If you respond, that will give [the attackers] credibility,'" said J. David Jentsch, a neuroscientist whose car was set on fire. "But being silent wasn't making us feel safer. And it's a moot point if they are coming to burn your car anyway, whether you give them credibility or not."
