Re "Accidental Hero" (May 10): Animal rights terrorists have stolen or destroyed tens of millions of dollars worth of taxpayer- and consumer-funded equipment, supplies and animals. Jonathan Paul's refusal to provide the court testimony with immunity concerning one such felonious incident does not make the illegal acts of those he protects legitimate.

Paul says he and his partner, John Schettler, have prepared resumes for 7,000 clients since starting their business in 1986.

Re "My brother, the 'terrorist,' " Opinion, May 24 Jonathan Paul believes slaughterhouses are inhumane to animals, so his decision was to burn it down. And his sister thinks he doesn't fit the definition of a terrorist? To all the activists who commit criminal acts like Paul's, try changing the laws you disagree with instead of hurting law-abiding citizens. Paul knew the potential consequences, yet he still committed arson, and now his sister is upset about the potential amount of prison time he faces.
