Vegan activist pleads guilty to Sheepskin Factory arson
Denver Post ^ | 11/18/2010 | Yesenia Robles

Posted on 11/18/2010 3:47:40 PM PST by george76

Vegan activist Walter Edmund Bond, of Utah, today pleaded guilty to felony counts related to an April fire that burned down the Sheepskin Factory in Glendale.

Bond, 34, was arrested on July 22, accused of using fire or explosives to damage property involved in interstate commerce and of using force, violence or threats involving animal enterprises. The blaze caused more than $500,000 in damage to the Sheepskin Factory in the early hours of April 30.

On July 28, Bond pleaded not guilty to the federal charges. By changing his plea today, he may be eligible for a shorter prison sentence.

Bond is also being investigated for two Utah blazes: a June 5 fire at a leather factory and a July 3 arson at a restaurant that served foie gras

More evidence that vegans aren’t as healthy and happy as they would have us believe. I’m having New York Strip tonight ... medium rare.

You know what would be a fitting punishment for this craven eco-terrorist?

We should stab his face with sharp needles filled with permanent ink!!!!

Oh, wait...

During their conversation, federal agents listened in as Bond claimed to use the nickname "Lone Wolf," described the Sheepskin Factory as a "box of matches," and vowed to torch the business again "in a couple of years."

If we had a sane criminal justice system, we'd put this creep to death and make sure he couldn't endanger anyone else's life as he promised to do.

Not a bad idea, tattoo a T-bone steak on the left side of his face. LOL!

I hope this jerk gets a long sentence!

Paranoia and madness are symptoms of B12 deficiency, which vegans are prone to having.

A few decades in the state pen would be nice.

Then he could finish the other side of his face with prison ink.

Ouch!

I loves me some NY strip. Preferably with a ginormous baked potato and creamed spinach on the side.

Heh. :-) You've gotta wonder about a "vegan" who gets himself inked-up like Queequeg the Harpooner.

Yep. When I eat a good meal that includes a nice hunk o’ meat, I find that my overall outlook on life improves dramatically. Eating only veggies must leave a person pretty p!$$ed off...

Anybody that can eat a hunk of tofu and convince themselves that it's just yummy, can't have thier lid screwed on too tight to begin with.

To say nothing of the folks who are going to celebrate with a Tofurkey next week and convince themselves it tastes anything like, well...anything other than what a tofurkey probably tastes like:

I’m curious what Bond’s employment history consisted of.

Sentencing should be fair!   He should be let out the very minute he finishes paying off the $500,00.00 in damages he caused... plus interest accrued on the principal sum, until paid, and all board and lodging costs for the term of his incarceration, of course. (Does anybody happen to know what the hourly rate of pay for inmates is these days?)
