Animal Tormentor Ding’s house — where he was imprisoned today — is in the background behind the watchful gaze of this officer of the law. He had his laptop open in his vehicle and we believe he was reading Negotiation is Over! 
by NIO Florida

We had an amazing afternoon connecting with Mercenary Mingzhou Ding’s neighbors. The residents of Haile Plantation were absolutely horrified to learn about their neighbor and quite interested to learn that their taxes are funding torture $cience. Still others walked out into the street to look upon the police presence in disbelief. People who don’t maim and murder for a living don’t need police protection. We heard several stories about sheriffs being on SW 35th Lane frequently in recent weeks. We suspect that may have something to do with Ding’s new-found notoriety and this website.

Several of his neighbors gave us some great campaign ideas and we’ll be sending a follow-up letter to many to thank them for being so warm and cordial as well as to welcome them into this fight for justice. Considering that we found an ally within the UF faculty yesterday — someone who is utterly disgusted by the university’s blood-money animal torture business — Halloween Havoc has been a resounding success!

We had a great time this morning talking to all the punks, nihilists, anarchists, liberals, radicals and assorted vegans & freaks who are in Gainesville for a punk/metal festival. Many in this crowd were incensed and outraged to learn about the mercenaries inside UF who condemn animals to a hellish existence so that they may bathe in their blood money.

Dear Ms. Boniface:

Pursuant to the state open records law, Fla. Stat. Secs. 119.01 to 119.15, I write to request access to and a copy of records for the 33 non-human primates documented in the latest USDA Inspection Report at UF dated November 25, 2009. I am requesting information on each of these animals including the species, sex, identification number, name (if applicable), and date of birth, the veterinary records maintained throughout each experiment, an explanation of the disposition of any of the 33 non-human primates that have since been retired or otherwise disposed of, the manner in which they may have died, and a picture or video of each animal. If your agency does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does and include the proper custodian’s name and address.

I am seeking this information for publication and broadcast to the general public.

I agree to pay any reasonable copying and postage fees of not more than $20. If the cost would be greater than this amount, please notify me. Please provide a receipt indicating the charges for each document.

I would request your response within ten (10) business days.

If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely. Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.

Please be advised that I am prepared to pursue whatever legal remedy necessary to obtain access to the requested records. I would note that willful violation of the open records law can result in your being fined up to $1,000, imprisoned for up to one year, or both. See Fla. Stat. Sec. 119.10. Litigation costs and attorney fees may also be awarded. See Sec. 119.12.

Thank you for your assistance.

Subject: Request to Visit and Photograph the UF Animal Facilities

Dear Ms. Sykes:

Although we’ve not yet had the pleasure of meeting in person, I’m already getting bored with having to contextualize the misstatements and half-truths you seem quite comfortable in spreading in the media.

You can say whatever you like about me, personally. It’s of no consequence. But, when you go on record publicly saying that the images I’ve been using were not even taken inside of UF, then I must infer that you and I would both prefer that I use actual pictures from inside your chambers of torture.

Therefore, please contact me at your earliest convenience so that I may take pictures of the animals imprisoned inside your institution.

Perhaps one of your researchers would demonstrate for me how they extract terrified monkeys from squeeze cages or how they drug them with ketamine to transport their unconscious bodies undetected by your own student body. Perhaps you would allow me to photograph the animals that are no longer viable victims, how they are murdered, and their bodies incinerated to destroy the evidence of the horrors they were forced to endure. And, Ms. Sikes, perhaps you would like to discuss Louis, the monkey who your university chose to murder in July rather than having his poor little deformed body retired to a sanctuary. I’d also like to photograph the pregnant sheep who are mutilated along with their fetuses, the cats who’s spinal cords have been severed, the rat populations that are subject to LD50 studies…. in fact, I’d like a tour of your entire operation.

And, of course, I’ll be more than happy to share with you anything that you find of interest. For example, we can discuss J. David Jentsch & his injunction against me, and any other distractions we need to deal with and eliminate.

I look forward to your reply.

Trick or Treating at Mercenary Ding’s neighbors (9345 SW 35th Lane)

The neighbors have a right to know who lives amongst them

Last week I reported that University of Florida re$earcher Mingzhou Ding is the person who actually mutilates monkeys. But I was wrong. He does not carve up the bodies of live animals; his co-conspirators do it for him. He is simply the Primary Investigator (PI) who garners over a quarter million dollars in taxpayer money from the NIH annually and who has built a long and distinguished career in the wonderful world of animal torture. It pays well, ya know!

According to “UF defends accused ‘animal murderer,'” published last night by the “Independent Florida Alligator” (IFA) — their student-run paper — UF Public Affairs director Janine Sikes said:

“Organizations such as this [NIO] use mischaracterizations and inaccuracies to make an argument, and they falsely alleged things about this individual [Ding] who just analyzed the data.”

And the university’s position was followed by a nicely-placed quote from me:

“But that doesn’t mitigate culpability.”

Hmmm. As an institution of higher learning, one would assume that UF is concerned with such things as truthfulness, accuracy, context, and journalistic integrity. But, nah… not so much. It seems that when vivisection and profits enter the equation, we consistently watch in dumb amazement as objectivity yields to the propaganda machine. And, pitifully, IFA has succumbed. But it is not difficult to understand why. The student reporter, Jon Silman, in response to his questions, was hung up on twice by the Biomedical Department of his own university and, more likely than not, his own academic career is at stake if he should stray from UF party lines. We both, however, share the belief that the university is hiding behind half-truths and skewed statements. The fact that Silman did not even forward to me a copy of this article after publishing yesterday tells me all I need to know. This is not journalism. It is a propaganda piece. As this writer knows, I hide nothing, speak with absolute candor and honesty, and am always available to answer anything from anyone. The same cannot be said for UF. And, if I’m wrong about anything, then I invite Public Affairs director Janine Sikes to set the record straight, right here, out in the open. I censor no one.

Now, let’s take a look at “mischaracterizations and inaccuracies,” shall we? The University position seems to be that Ding is no more culpable than an historian who details past atrocities.

One only needs to take a look at the body of Mercenary Ding’s work to understand that he is not a disinterested and feckless professor sitting behind a computer innocently googling information from third party abusers. For example, a new book by Oxford Press, edited by Mercenary Ding, brings together a compendium of industrial abusers. And, in 781 articles dating from 1975 to present, the government site, PubMed, documents Ding’s complicity in every conceivable kind of animal sadism perpetrated on individuals from every species ranging from rodents to nonhuman primates. It is easy to envision Ding sitting at a computer inputting data that Josef Mengele extracted from the bodies of his human experiments. And I am confident that, if UF was reaping the financial windfall of NIH grants from these atrocities, Ms. Sikes would be on the frontlines defending Ding.

As Dr. Jerry Vlasak aptly observes, “the vast majority of Nazis did not participate in the actual killing of Jews, but provided the logistics, funding, and support for others to do so. They are still just as morally implicated and responsible as those who dropped the pellets down the chute. Perhaps moreso for being the instigators/planners/funders.”
