Valin Posted February 24, 2012 Share Posted February 24, 2012 Hot Air: Howard Portnoy 2/23/12 What is the difference between animal rights advocacy and the liberation of World War II concentration camps? None, if you are Meredith Lowell, who uses the Facebook alias Anne Lowery. The Daily News reports that Lowell/Lowery, 27, was the target of a sting operation conducted by the FBI last November after the Cleveland Heights woman advertised for a hit man to shoot or slit the throat of a random fur-wearer. An FBI affidavit filed with the U.S. District Court in Cleveland maintains that Lowery offered to pay $830 to $850 for the hit and identified the ideal candidate as someone living in northeast Ohio. The document further states that an undercover FBI employee posing as a possible hit man entered into an email correspondence with Lowell, who 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.” The killing was to take place outside a library near a playground in her hometown. (Snip) Lowery stipulated that she needed to be near the site when the slaying took place so she could distribute “papers” afterward. She also expressed her desire to be arrested so as to call attention to her beliefs and “get out of the home she shared with her parents and brothers who eat meat and eggs and use fur, leather and wool.” (Snip) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
