ELF Eco-Terrorist Turns Herself In

Maybe the mustache was part of her disguise while she was on the lam.

An alleged eco-terrorist was arrested on Thursday after six years on the run following an indictment claiming she helped set off a string of high-profile fires across the West.

Rebecca Jeanette Rubin, 39, a Canadian citizen, turned herself in to the FBI at the Canadian border in Blaine, Washington after spending years hiding in her home country.

Rubin spent a decade as an international fugitive from the largest ecoterrorism investigation in U.S. history. The former wildlife researcher was part of a cell of the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front known as The Family, based in Eugene, Oregon.

Rubin was sought on conspiracy and arson indictments dating to 2006 alleging she helped set fires at the Vail ski resort in Colorado and at federal wild horse corrals in Eastern Oregon and Northern California, and that she tried to set fire to a lumber mill office in Medford, Oregon.

This nutcase and her cohorts caused millions in damage but will probably walk with light sentences since they’re  heroes  to the far-left environmental wackos.

    Most noteworthy for me: “The former wildlife researcher was part of a cell……” So, can I infer she was a part of academia even if in Canada? I’ve met a few hard core progressive academics, bordering on true socialists, that I wouldn’t be surprised were also involved in violent protest in their pasts. During the Bush era, I wondered if they ever got any sleep they were so routinely and continuously distraught.
