Unfairly Prosecuted Animal Activist: Please Sign Petition

Background | From The Petition Site

In a day in age when murderers are allowed to go free within our judicial system, it seems absurd to punish Arnold Christopher Lagergren so harshly. We have a community wanting answers as to why such harsh punishment has been implemented for taking pictures and trespassing. Arnold Christopher Lagergren does not derserve to be made an example for merely attempting to save a life.


Lagergren faces a prison sentence of up to five years if convicted of a felony under the Florida Animal Enterprise Protection Act. Each of the misdemeanor charges he faces could add a year to that sentence.

Lagergren was “charged with four misdemeanor counts of trespass and vandalism for alleged incidents at the Marine Mammal Conservancy. Police reports describe him as affiliated with the international Animal Liberation Front organization, which advocates ‘direct action’ against animal captivity. … Monroe County Court Judge Regan Ptomey set bonds totaling $30,000 on the four charges, according to court records.” ~The Miami Herald

    The treatment of Mr Lagergren is quite reprehensible, and will surely be among those acts perpetrated today for which we shall be rightly condemned by those who come after us. We should also refrain from negatively judging other people on the basis of their monetary worth and, instead, take their ethical motivation as the principle benchmark of their character..
