cries for help (not)

via Orcinus, fascinating article published last year in the Billings [Montana] Outpost
The "School Yard Bullies" report, compiled by network co-directors Ken Toole and Christine Kaufmann and other staff members, details more than 40 recent incidents of near-violence, threats, vandalism and degradation aimed at individuals and organizations involved in environmental causes in northwestern Montana.

"The purpose of the report is to inform the community and give people information they need to speak out against intimidation and reclaim civility in the public debate," Ms. Kaufmann says.
Similar tactics detailed in The war against the greens (book) by David Helvarg (here's an interview, with some pretty disturbing details)
