Why is Eco-terrorism dangerous?

"A contractor walked in August 2003 through Clippinger Chevrolet in West Covina, Calif., where Earth Liberation Front members allegedly vandalized more than 120 sport utility vehicles.

Over the past twenty years, eco-terrorists have committed various violent crimes in order to attempt to spread their message through such methods as bombings, various arsons, and different types of harassment and vandalism that have so far caused as much as one hundred million dollars in damage. Among those targets of these acts of terror are car dealerships, housing developments, fast food restaurants that have been “firebombed” as well as the targeting of people that are employed at companies that these eco-terrorists view as a threat to the environment. The danger of eco terrorism is that it installs violent and harmful practices in order to attempt to get its point across, along with vandalizing or destroying private property and causing potential physical harm to human beings as well.
