One the extremists pulled out a gun and almost shot one of the kids who stood up to her, she then said she would shoot him if he got out of line again, thus conveys action in the book.
The agency just found out who is leading a global violence group.
The auther is making the charactors lay low, creating realism in the book.
They kidnapped a celeberty and put him on national televion on liberation(for animals) and he said he would rather be shot than listen to the storys. The host than said they would shoot him after the show was over. I predict after the show they wont shoot him but make it seem like the have shot him and send him to a house where there other agents are.
I am thinking (predicting) that James and Kyle will attempt to save the TV star from fatal death, also they have started to take over the AFA(Animal Freedom Association).
They are back at campus and the writer isn't ending the book yet but he is slowing it down.pg.307
The writer ended the book with humor and also leaving for summer vacation, ending the book like this makes you ant to read the next one. pg,314.

Robert Muchamore has the activist groups in his book go too far in order to prove the point that the testing of animals and the abuse of animals are one and the same. These groups are abusing humans by doing what these humans have done to the animals. For example, they took a celebrity chef and made him drink one liter of his own cleaning fluid (Pg. 280). The reason why they made him do this is because the chef (Nick Cobb) approved testing on bunnies by allowing his cleaning fluid to be fed to them. The reason why he approved this testing was to show the family that was going to sue him when their daughter accidently drank his cleaning fluid that destroyed her digestive system, that it wasn’t just his cleaning fluid that caused the damage. Nick Cobb was wrong and in fact, it was just his cleaning fluid that injured the girl. These are the types of things that one of the activist groups were doing to people and showing it on National television.
The main characters in the book are agents who go on missions to stop people from committing crimes. Stopping the violent activist groups was one of one of the missions that these agents had. Some of the main characters would go undercover to put an end to the groups and destroy them. These actions taken by the activists are one example the author gives you in the book. The author also shows the activist groups doing things like ruining companies. One example of this is when an activist group blows up all of the tools, vans and warehouses that were important to the company that sent materials to another company that tested on animals (Pg. 218). The company that tested on animals was named Malark Research. This cut off Malark Research’s ability to get supplies for testing. This is another example of people acting violent and going too far to prove their point.
The agents were reading about the activist groups and they read that a few people in the activist group blinded a woman who worked for Malark Research, they left a note on her garage in spray paint saying “stop working for Malark Research because next time we will kill you. P.S. we know where your children live too” (Pg.65). This was recognized as one of their minor attacks. The agents also read that they had killed hundreds of people and if you were only blinded by them you were considered lucky. The people who worked at Malark were terrified that they would be killed, maimed, tortured or beaten or that their families would be hurt.
Another example of the activist groups going too far is when one group started a riot. The members of the group were hitting the police vans with hammers and sledgehammers and throwing fireworks everywhere. A couple of police officers were killed trying to stop the riot by the violent acts of the activist group during the riot (Pgs. 103-104).
The most violent activist group was called the AFA, Animal Freedom Alliance. In contrast, there were other activist groups that did not use violence against Malark. One such group was the Zebra Alliance. This group would break into Malark Research and free the puppies that were being used for research and testing. The Zebra Alliance would find the puppies that they were able to free new loving homes. The author created two different groups that would show the right way and wrong way to get your message across when standing up for a cause you believe in, like no animal abuse and testing. All of these examples show why the activists groups went to far except for the Zebra Alliance. The Zebra Alliance tried to demonstrate their view about the abuse of animals in a non violent manner by freeing the puppies.
The author, Robert Muchamore, to prove his point that number one animal abuse is wrong and number two that there is a right and wrong way to do things used the agents in their missions to capture the activists and stop them from their violent actions against humans. This is how he proves his point in the book that violence does not change anything, it just makes things worse
