You may be missing part of big picture
In U.S. agriculture we deal with these animal extremists all the time. You see these extremists go as far as threats to burn your business to the ground, bodily harm, etc. Many years ago they torched part of Ag hall at Michigan State University. There are thousands of farms across the USA...one is not to much of a target over another. But a prop builder with a tv show....they are probably salivating and drawing straws to see who gets to do the first dirty deed and be a "hero" for their cause. I have seen the destruction radicals do first hand. So maybe cut Ed a little slack...unless you want to pull midnight watch duty with your Glock 365 a year. He was in a no win situation when you are dealing with finatics.

Frightprops gets 50 emails yesterday...
If you missed that part go back and read Doug's posting....50 nasty emails in one day. These extremists and others who are closely related are well connected. Even more so than we are on the forum here. The sky is the limit to what they would do. They turn rabid in their groups with a pack mentality and nothing is wrong in their eyes. Ends justify the means. I would not be displaying that prop this year if you have one. Yes it might get you on the news. It might also get you on the news with fire trucks at 4:30 am a few days later. But I brought home the "Burning Man" barrel prop Distortions had on the show floor of Transworld this year. That of course is ok.
