(15 March 2008, Washington) Gabriel, 29, "did it to punish the rich white
people for the death of the whales, and the depletion of the rain forests."
He sought revenge by sawing through a 69,000-volt line.
With a tree saw.
On a long metal pole.
And dishwashing gloves for insulation.
Gabriel was found lying on his back, with the gloves partially melted on
his hands and his pants burned away from his body. He certainly succeeded
in making at least one person "suffer just like the whales and trees."
Thousands of households experienced a temporary loss of power when he
shorted out the power lines.
The unlucky environmental activist was flown to a local hospital and is
expected to survive.
