After the fire, Bond posted a message on the Internet that took responsibility for the Sheepskin Factory fire. At the end of the message the defendant used the nickname "ALF Lone Wolf."

ALF is an acronym used by a group called the Animal Liberation Front.

The word “vegan” sucks all the badass out of a tattoo.

Would this guy set fire to a fox den? A beaver dam? A bear cave?

Humans are animals, too. If you care little enough about the welfare of this species to set fire to its habitat, you are no supporter of animal rights.

did a little search and found this .....

An informant contacted the F.B.I. after Bond reportedly called them from a payphone and admitted to the arsons. The informant described a prominent tattoo on the suspect's face, and the word "vegan" across his neck. A meeting was set up at the Ramada Inn in Glendale, Colorado, where he admitted on undercover surveillance video that he had set all the fires. Bond was arrested at a friends house, who stated that the suspect ate two hamburgers containing beef while he was there. Bond had a backpack in his possession, which contained propaganda literature titled "The Declaration of War - Killing People to Save Animals - Strike a Match, Light a Fuse, We Only Have the Earth to Lose."

The penalty for ALF’s should be quick death

Then we’ll see if death is a deterrent

I think it says WICAN. The second letter does not look like an E.

The turkey only got 5 years, not near long enough.
