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."
