Did Shapiro Stop Harassment?
After I emailed my open letter to Dr. Shapiro to a dozen or so Pierce faculty, the harassing comments demanding I leave alone pursuing the connection between Pierce and Carolina biological have stopped.
Neither Carolina nor Shapiro have followed up with further information about where Carolina gets the cats for dissection. Since there has been no response, I assume nothing has changed and Carolina us still getting many of its cats from Mexico where they are picked up off the street.
Shapiro does not see this as a moral or ethical issue. He sees anyone involved in the animal rights movement as "hollow" and empty. I just don't get this perspective. If he perceives a love and desire to protect animals as moral shallowness, that speaks volumes about where he comes from.
I sent a copy of my letter to ADL, one of whom responded "He sounds like he is on crack."
My next step is to get my letter to Pierce's students. I wonder if they will be hollow and empty too after seeing dissected cat photos and hearing the "truth" (or at least unrebutted allegations about Shapiro, Carolina and Pierce).
Shapiro has written an "ethics" book justifying the use of animals for dissection, research and even addiction studies. I wonder if he understands the difference between ethics and morality.
The photo immediately above may have been taken just days before he dissected the cute monkeys. The photo was probably taken for the Pierce website so that he appears compassionate about animals.
What a fraud.
