Skip to comments.Bond reduced in SUV firebombing case ( ELF or ALF ? )
Posted on 05/24/2007 4:10:48 PM PDT by george76
A Denver judge halved the bond today for a suspected eco-terrorist accused of setting firebombs in large SUVs after his father, a Colorado Springs lawyer, agreed to post the bond.
Bond for Grant Barnes, 24, was reduced from $200,000 to $100,000 after defense attorney Phil Cherner told the judge that Barnes father, Thomas Barnes, a former deputy district attorney in El Paso County, would ensure that his son appears in court.
Prosecutor Ryan Younggren said he and the victims objected to a bond reduction because Grant Barnes might plant more firebombs if he gets out.

I’ve never understood why destroying things helps the environment.
The smoke would likely cause more air pollution than driving around for fifty years ?
Burning tires and all...
I guess that they are nuts ?
I am glad these idiots moved out of our area.
Did you know Thomas Barnes or his kid ?
Let's set the record straight and maybe the media will be obliged to cease their habit of spreading slander and misinformation relating to me in my case. I'm Tre Arrow! I legally changed my name to Tre Arrow 5 years ago. I had changed my name long before I lived in the trees at Eagle Creek (contrary to reports attempting to portray me as less-than-sane by alleging I said,"The trees told me to change my name"). I am a man who is dedicated to a life of non-violent activism and social justice. I've been involved with various issues ranging from the environment to non-humyn animal welfare to humyn rights. I am a man who thinks, feels and cares about the well being of everyone and everything. The desecration to our only earth-mother, the abuse and slaughtering of our co-inhabitants and the rampant violation to civil and humyn rights has motivated me to take non-violent action to oppose and expose what I see as heinous crimes in our culture.
I am Tre Arrow, an innocent man imprisoned in Canada for almost a year and a half. I have become a target by the FBI, not because I am guilty of the charges in the US, but because I have become a threat to the powers that be. I am a threat because I stand in the way of corporate and government agendas. I am a threat because I cause corporations to lose precious profit from raping and pillaging earth-mother. I am a threat because I speak about the lies, cover-ups and atrocities committed by the hands of government and corporate figures. I am a threat because I speak the truth! The Powers That Be don't want us to know the truth!
This is why I am being targeted. This is why I am in prison. This is why I am facing the rest of my life behind bars, walls, and fences. I will not be still. I will not be silent. As long as these injustices continue towards me, the planet, our non-humyn animal friends and our brothers and sisters here and abroad then there is still work to do. May we all strive to create a world filled with love, justice, and respect for everyone and everything.
I was not actually referring to the Barnes, as I do not live in Texas. But we use to have an active ELF terrorist cell who would torch houses, GOP headquarters, ruin construction equipment and spike trees. I assume they headed west because the activity has stopped.

Nice association they got there.
He used “I” about 27 times in that little bit of fluff, with a few “me” and “my” thrown in. A bit of an ego there, huh.
BTW, what the heck is a “humyn”? Some mystical form of “human” or what?
Denial of God leads inexorably to paganism and violence.
This guy is just a nut.
