    These lovely folks are the closest things to terrorists ACTIVELY looking to cause problems with people who are against their ideals. Seriously now, are there any legitimate routes of action against organizations responsible for perpetrating such acts? I know that some authority out there would love to know these bozos have instructions on how to make timers for bombs/fires, and how to aviod making your fires look like arson... /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    The problem with a group like this is that everything about them is compartamentalized. One person may know another person in the group who knows another person, but Person A doesn't know Person C, but they both know Person B. See what I'm getting at. Everyone in the group doesn't know what's going on, they have their own mission and they know nothing about what the other group is up to. Keeps the chance of information leaking out and getting caught slim. There's a terrorist group in Greece that the authorities are just now catching up to and this group has been doing their thing for something like the last 30 years. They ran the same way.

    I looked throuhg that site, its pretty distrubing. Vandalising new houses being built, burning down offices of lumber mills. They even have a section explaining what to do if you are questioned by agents. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Eco-terrorist group targets Pennsylvania car dealer

    GIRARD, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Bob Ferrando wonders if he was targeted because he's the biggest Ford truck dealer in Erie County. Maybe it was because of the TV commercial that showed off 700 vehicles.

    Whatever the reason, the northwestern Pennsylvania auto dealer was the latest target of the Earth Liberation Front, a radical underground environmental group he'd never heard of until a week ago.

    Early on New Year's Day, someone sneaked onto his lot about 10 miles west of Erie and ignited jugs full of gasoline under several vehicles. The fire damaged or destroyed a couple of Ford trucks and two sport utility vehicles.

    By the morning of January 3, ELF had claimed responsibility, saying the attack was part of a campaign to save the environment by battling commercialism and industry.

    Ferrando said the group had probably harmed the environment by burning vehicles.

    "I think the burning of rubber tires and all the hoses and gasoline and metal and rubber probably did more harm than the running of the trucks," he said.

    ELF has taken credit for several past vandalism attacks in Pennsylvania and across the country.

    On the ELF Press Office Web site, the group took credit for the March torching of a construction crane at a bridge site and an August fire that destroyed an unoccupied forest research station near Warren, east of Erie. It also took credit for a November fire at a mink farm outside Erie.

    After the forest research station fire, ELF said, "where it is necessary, we will no longer hesitate to pick up the gun to implement justice."

    On Thursday, ELF claimed members attacked construction vehicles in northeast Philadelphia on December 28, putting glue in locks, pouring sugar in gas tanks and breaking windows. The group also said it damaged a demonstration home by spray-painting its walls and breaking windows, maintaining members acted to protest the destruction of "natural land" that had been home to wildlife.

    No one has been arrested in the vandalism attacks, which have caused no injuries but fall in line with ELF's stated goal of taking radical action; the Web site even includes instructions on arson.

    In an e-mail response to The Associated Press, the ELF Press Office said several auto dealerships had been targeted across the nation in recent years as part of a protest against gas-guzzling SUVs and car culture.

    ELF's response did not speculate why Ferrando's lot was targeted. The group says its members are anonymous and claim membership simply by carrying out actions. Then, people post messages to the Web site, which says it doesn't represent ELF but only serves as a media conduit for the group.

    Around Richmond, Virginia, more than 30 sport utility vehicles were vandalized over several months last year. ELF claimed responsibility.

    Elsewhere in the country, teenagers linked to ELF were arrested in February 2001 in a string of arsons involving luxury homes on Long Island, New York, ELF -- which sometimes acts in concert with a group called the Animal Liberation Front -- also claimed responsibility for a 1998 arson at a Vail, Colorado, ski resort that caused $12 million in damage.

    Last month, an ELF saboteur, Jacob D.B. Sherman, pleaded guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence after being accused of helping to torch logging trucks in Oregon.

    The group says it has caused $45 million in damages "to entities who profit from the destruction of life" in thousands of attacks since 1997.

    FBI Special Agent Bob Rudge, who is based in Erie, said the nature of the group makes members hard to stop.

    "There really is no hierarchy or leadership or organizational structure that we can attack," Rudge said. "Our traditional methods of investigation are really taxed in this type of case."

    Rudge says there have been few arrests over the years.

    Erie County residents wonder why the attacks are happening in their area and what can be done to catch the culprits.

    "Maybe they don't mean to hurt anybody, but someday, they're going to kill someone," Ferrando said.
