European police sweep nets 30 AR arrests
Thirty animal rights extremists have been arrested in raids in the UK, Belgium, and the Netherlands according to this report. The set of raids was dubbed "operation Achilles" and is thought to be the largest operation ever targeting AR extremists. The alleged perps are charged with a variety of crimes including arson and vandalism. Kudos to the cops for some great work here. If convicted, that's hopefully 30 AR miscreants that are going exactly where they belong: to the joint. Chalk up one for the good guys.
