    Radical environmentalist pleads guilty to arson in Western fires

    A radical ecological activist who evaded capture for a decade pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy and arson for her role with an extremist ecoterrorism group believed responsible for setting 20 fires that burned $40 million of property across the West from 1996 to 2001.Rebecca Jeanette Rubin, 40, a Canadian citizen, faces a federal prison term of five to 7˝ years when she's sentenced in January, according to a plea agreement entered in U.S. District Court in Portland, Ore.
    As part of the plea deal, Rubin, a former wildlife researcher, agreed to provide information about other members of the ecoterrorism group with which she has been connected. It's called "the Family," and according to the FBI, it was an even more extreme faction of two radical environmentalist groups, the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front.
    the deal, which has been in negotiations for months, she won't be compelled to identify others involved in crimes committed by the Family — which federal authorities have branded the most wanted domestic terrorist group in the U.S.

    Re: Radical environmentalist pleads guilty to arson in Western fires

    I'm a little confused as to why an environmental group thinks setting fire to ski resorts and horse corrals is somehow in line with their goals.

    Like, is there some environmentally destructive aspect of ski lifts that I'm not aware of?

    Yeah, or Clinton, and more to recent times, Obama himself.

    Agreed...They are a foolish bunch...Destroying private property is going to get you hated by everyone....It's really not a political thing.

    I suppose I shouldn't look for a crazy person's behavior to make sense.
