I hope he gets all twenty.
Guilty AND guitly!
What’s that word on his neck?
almost looks like the tattooist misspelled McCain.
OH!!! now I see it!
on a larger version of the picture it clearly says VEGAN.
Shoulda said “MORON”
The word “vegan” sucks all the badass out of a tattoo.
He will be able to trade sex for the other half of his face tattoo.
“Well, Clarice...have the lambs stopped screaming yet?”
I don’t see him going meat free in prison.
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.
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
May the turkey receive the twenty years, he’ll fit right in the population with his artwork.
What? No Monkey Wrench Gang? He must have only been passing through Utard.

He’ll be doing plenty of time in the pen - fenced in.
Maybe he was waiting to see the movie?
I think it says WICAN. The second letter does not look like an E.
The turkey only got 5 years, not near long enough.
Hopefully the feds and Utah will extend his jail time
I have a hunch they may when tried again for the other.
