Animal Rights Activist Arrested: Soliciting Undercover Hitman ‘Willing to Kill Someone Wearing Fur’
The Blaze ^ | 02-22-12 | Liz Klimas

Posted on 02/22/2012 12:12:26 PM PST by Lazlo in PA

An Ohio woman who compared animal-welfare work to the liberation of World War II concentration camps has been charged with soliciting a hit man to fatally shoot or slit the throat of a random fur-wearer, federal authorities said.

Meredith Lowell, 27, of Cleveland Heights, appeared Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Cleveland, where a magistrate judge ordered her held by the U.S. Marshals Service pending a hearing next week, court records show. One of her defense attorneys, Walter Lucas, declined comment when reached by phone after the court appearance.

Investigators say the FBI was notified in November of a Facebook page Lowell created under the alias Anne Lowery offering $830 to $850 for the hit and saying the ideal candidate would live in northeast Ohio, according to an FBI affidavit filed with the court on Friday.

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator

$730 ???? Where did that number come from.

It once again proves what I have always thought - not only are leftists angry and stupid, they are also greedy and CHEAP!!!

Mentally unhinged?
Not a chance. She's an arrogant, self-righteous leftie who truly believes in her own infalibility.
She deserves to be put into a very small room with very large built-in-the-wall speakers listening to Ethel Merman singing "There's No Business Like Show Business."
THEN she will be mentally unhinged, but totally harmless.

Very astute observation. I was literally just reading that (through verse 27) about ten minutes ago.

850 dollars to kill someone? I’m pretty sure it costs the government more to abort a baby than what she was wanting to pay!

Let’s face it, this woman should get the death penalty. She basically wanted to commit mass murder by-proxy.

Maybe she should be shackled to a couple of hunters during deer season.

Would the New York Times cover this differently IF she had been a racists offing money to kill a black person? If that was the case, every conservative would be painted as being just as nutty and dangerous.

If she was a Muslim, the New York Times would cover the story from the viewpoint that ‘all Muslims are peaceful - and this woman acted alone”. They would protect the community.

If she’s a liberal - and member of a liberal fringe group - they won’t cover the story at all - or they’ll bury it.

Waiting, waiting...

If she was Muslim, the New York Times and Washington Post would cover the story from the viewpoint that ‘Muslims are peaceful - and this woman acted alone”. They would protect the Muslim community - and ‘hint’ conservatives might hurt innocent Muslims.

If she’s a liberal - and member of a liberal fringe group - they won’t cover the story at all - or they’ll bury it.

To be set free she should be required to show the ability to field dress a recently killed deer. Make it a choice. Sit in jail OR field dress a deer.

Just lock her in a cage with a couple of hungry endangered species animals. Lions, tigers, bears. Whatever.

I saw an episode of COPS! where they did a sting on this woman who wanted to kill her husband. It took the whole episode, they even made it look like the hit went off, she was an excellent actor though, until her husband walked into the interrogation room...

What they never answered is where the hell do you find hitmen and how did the cops find this out, are there a lot of people looking to have other people killed? How do people even conceive of such a thing? Hell surely awaits.

I mean, really, Facebook? She put an add in Facebook?

Guilty as charged though.

That would be 'news' for years... Homeland Security would step in - - Hillary would be talking about the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy... it would get nasty.

I'm waiting to see if the New York Times covers this story at all - I'm betting, "no" - - not that there's a double standard or anything...

There’s something VERY wrong with this young woman. Whether she’s emotionally disturbed or has a very low IQ, I can’t tell. She reminds me of another young Peta supporter who I saw douse herself with fake blood outside a store in Regent Street. It was like the film “Carrie” come to life. This young woman has the same face - scary, children!

Was she going to train the assassin to recognize real fur?

Bang! Bang! “Oops, sorry, that’s fake fur!”

(spoiler alert)
There was a novel (I believe by Tom Clancy) where a bunch of animal rights nuts were going to create some virus where everyone on earth except those in their building would be wiped out, leaving the world to their small group and the animal kingdom.

Except they lost in the end so our heroes plopped them next to their compound in the middle of a very remote part of the Amazon forest, buck naked, and destroyed their compound. They then told them to enjoy their “natural” world as our heroes left in their helicopter.

One of my favorite endings.

Set her up Clockwork Orange style in the Bob Uecker front row seats at a typical Asian meat market. Sunny Times!

I've watched enough Law & Order to know that she is guilty of SOMEthing. Death penalty? No, but INTENT to commit murder for hire? You bet.

Everyone in her neighborhood who has/cares about children should have this woman's picture, name and address posted everywhere possible.

If she manages to get out on bail, she may just decide to slit the throat of some poor kid (regardless of the kid's age) to become a martyr for the Animal Rights cause.

She might even supply something made of fur to the kid just prior to the killing.

She should not be able to show her face anywhere in the neighborhood without one or more people instantly recognizing her and tracking her actions closely.

Wanted to hire: A person to dress up as a giant furry bunny who will pitch a tent in the vacant lot across from PETA headquarters and who will roast and eat all manner of game animals. We're speaking squirrel kabobs, porcupine nuggets and meatballs, venison and elk stir fry and other delectable treats while smacking his bunny lips loudly and humming the theme song to Hell's Kitchen. Between meals, the giant bunny should tie trout fishing flies using all manners of fur and feathers from God's edible creations or sew moccasins out of leather. The job pays $731.

Thats Rainbow 6

Also, someone asked about hiring hitmen...

Walk into any low end dive bar and within 2 phone calls, someone there will have you hooked up. Or talk to some crack dealer on a random corner and slip him some cash. Or find some whacked out delinquent around town....

They are not remotely hard to find. Whether they CAN do the job is another matter and you ain’t gonna get a ‘quality’ job for the money she offered.

Human life is a commodity to be bought and sold with a lot more people than anyone’s willing to admit. Unfortunately.
