as a family member i would like to say dean is not a terrorist or is he slow he is held in high regard by all of his family members not only does dean endevour to raise awareness of the ongoing cruelty of animals in our supposedly civilised society he also has worked for many other charities in his home town raising money for the disadvantaged. Dean is a very sensitive caring man who would help any person or animal in distress, dean does not deserve to be locked up beside those who have harmed others in anyway it is soul destroying and only highlights to me and many others how our criminal justice system goes wrong we need to look at the actions of the police in recent peaceful protest events our system needs attention people have served less time for rape and murder. Dean is unique he doesnt spend his spare time or money drinking alcohol, smoking or taking drugs instead he lives his life dedicating his time and money to worthy causes i dont no much about shac or their actions i just know that deans is a decent human being with decent principles not all of them in line with todays regular twenty something males.

It is a pity that Dean has chosen such a poor outlet for his talents and is unforgivable that he draws others into his crimes

I think many of us that knew Dean agree that SHAC was the worst thing that ever came along in his life. A little geeky and lonely at school SHAC was the outlet that allowed him to create an identity for himself, to give focus to a life that was drifting and indefined. I'm sure with the help of family and friends he can put SHAC behind him and make a contribution to the needs of animals.
In many ways I see him as a victim as well as a criminal, without SHAC I doubt he would be in this position today.
I wish him the very best of luck.

Well, that's the true meaning of a "subversive organisation" for you:
it will corrupt and change all in contact with it, and not just "The State" or "Big Pharma". It's not just a trendy and cool fashion, subversive groups do exactly what they say on the tin and it's no surprise when they destroy their recruits at least as thoroughly as their targets.

In a way, it's like sexual abuse, because the tiny percentage of recruits who actually survive and become hardened, are soon abusers themselves. As Medawar has remarked here before, not only does the ALF's founder act increasingly like the late Richard Wiggs, he even makes himself look like the old fraud.
