    Radical Animal Rights Activist Arrested for Soliciting Undercover Hitman ‘Willing to Kill Someone Wearing Fur’

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (The Blaze/AP) — An Ohio woman who compared animal-welfare work to the liberation of World War II concentration camps has been charged with soliciting a hit man to fatally shoot or slit the throat of a random fur-wearer, federal authorities said.

    Meredith Lowell, 27, of Cleveland Heights, appeared Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Cleveland, where a magistrate judge ordered her held by the U.S. Marshals Service pending a hearing next week, court records show. One of her defense attorneys, Walter Lucas, declined comment when reached by phone after the court appearance.

    Investigators say the FBI was notified in November of a Facebook page Lowell created under the alias Anne Lowery offering $830 to $850 for the hit and saying the ideal candidate would live in northeast Ohio, according to an FBI affidavit filed with the court on Friday

    The affidavit says an FBI employee posing as a possible hit man later began email correspondence with Lowell, and she offered him $730 in jewelry or cash for the killing of a victim of at least 12 years but “preferably 14 years old or older” outside a library near a playground in her hometown.

    Here’s exactly how the Facebook post read according to the local ABC affiliate:

    "I would like to create an online community on facebook which would allow me to find someone who is willing to kill someone who is wearing fur toward the end of October 2011 or early November 2011 or possibly in January 2012 or February 2012 at the latest. The person willing to do this job would hopefully live in northeast Ohio, somewhere in Ohio, or be able to commute to Ohio and should be against people who wear fur products. I am willing to pay this person up to $830-$850 which is far more than I was originally willing to pay. Groups such as the Animal Rights Militia (also known as Animal Defense Militia) that are willing to kill people who wear fur are welcome to join this page. I welcome members of the Animal Liberation Front, the Animal Rights Militia, and similar groups that are militant to join and anyone else who believe that people who wear fur should be killed."

    She's 27YO and wanted to slit throats, odd that the Taliban did not recruit her straight off!

    Mindset or brainwashing? In all honesty, I can say that at 18 years old I said that I would never shoot an animal because they were 'innocent', and I would have no problem shooting a person if I had to choose between the two. I never once considered actually soliciting the murder of those who I disagreed with though. Fortunately, once I got out in the real world I quickly realized the error of my thinking. By her age I was well past that twisted frame of mind.

    Nah, I wouldnt say libby. She wanted the hitman to use a 'gun with a silencer'. Wrong termanology but definitely pro gun.

    I'd say just plain bat guano crazy.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see her attorney go for an insanity plea. She's definitely not traveling with a full sea bag.
