Animal rights activist Jason Miller appears to be working on another restraining order.
Miller and his fellow Bite Club of KC members have been banned
from the University of Kansas Medical Center, where security didn't take kindly to him passing out "Wanted" posters
targeting the so-called crimes of two researchers or his crusade
to end animal research. That's fine with Miller. He's taking his protests to the researchers' neighborhoods.
Last weekend, Miller and friends slipped on lab coats, stood on the
sidewalk and recited callback chants like, "we will never back down ...
until you stop the killing" and "you must understand, their blood is on
your hands." They also yelled, "Dianne Durham go to hell."
videos of the protest on YouTube and wrote on Bite
Club's website, "the purpose of our visit was to shame her for
primates and to inform her neighbors that a monkey torturer lives
amongst them." See for yourself.
This didn't sit well with the Westwood Hills police, who aren't fans
of being filmed.
Miller's questions about his First Amendment rights almost earned
him a trip to the slammer. But he agreed to leave, so the police decided
to let him go. That's probably a good thing for him given that he's on probation
for a year after he violated
a protection from-stalking
out by Johnson County Parks and Rec director Michael Meadors during the controversial deer harvest in Shawnee Mission Park.
protests at KU Med have earned him trespassing
tickets (he also FedEx'ed
a pig's head to Barbara
Atkinson, the med center's executive vice chancellor, and
offered $35,000 to anyone who can free the primates or end the research
-- peacefully, of course).
Despite a close encounter with the Westwood Hills police, Miller wrote that his group won't back down.
relentless campaign will continue," he wrote on Bite Club's site.
"Message to KU Med Center: We will not surrender until you stop
enslaving, torturing, and murdering our friends!"
Just a guess, but I bet Dunham files for a restraining order.
