Pig pro­test­ers put them­selves at risk

RE: Woman who gave wa­ter to pigs not guilty (May 5)

Let me get this straight. Any num­ber peo­ple with squeeze bot­tles filled with un­known liq­uids can reach into a ve­hi­cle weigh­ing tons filled with an un­pre­dictable live cargo when­ever they deem fit. One can only hope that this same judge is in the court­room the day when an ac­tivist’s arm or sleeve snags and they fall un­der the wheels and are hurt or crip­pled for life. Pro­test­ers on me­di­ans be­tween live lanes of traf­fic are not in­vin­ci­ble, and the farms, trans­port com­pa­nies and ul­ti­mately the driv­ers shouldn’t be held re­spon­si­ble if the ac­tions of these in­di­vid­u­als re­sult in their harm­ing them­selves.
