Jason Miller had another run-in with law enforcement last night, this time at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
The local animal rights activist, who went to battle for the deer in Shawnee Mission Park last year, has turned his attacks on KU Med, which uses monkeys in some clinical research studies.
Last month, an activist in Maine created a "Wanted" poster targeting the so-called crimes of two researchers at KU Med. Thursday night, those fliers earned Miller another encounter with the cops.
Last night, Miller took a field trip from his Lenexa home to Kansas City, Kansas. For two hours, he handed out the provocative "Wanted" fliers and anti-vivisection literature on the KU Med campus and in the surrounding neighborhood.
At about 9:30 p.m., as he was walking down 37th Street, Miller says, four security squad cars pulled up.
Miller says KU Med campus police stopped him as he was crossing State Line Road. They searched him for weapons. After questioning him for 20 minutes and taking his picture, the men issued a criminal trespass warning, telling Miller he'd be arrested if he returned to KU Med property.
"Since I dared to challenge the 'we have a right to torture and murder nonhuman animals for our pleasure and convenience' status quo ... I was detained, intimidated and harassed for shedding light on the truth," Miller wrote today on the Bite Club of KC blog.
Don't bet the trespass warning will deter him. For Miller, attention from the authorities only baits the hook.
