"Testing the Limits"
In an encore broadcast, correspondent Michael Okwu examines the blurring line between free speech and domestic terrorism on the campus of UCLA, where biomedical researchers have been targeted by extremist, sometimes violent, animal rights activists. Protesters have taken their fight to the homes of researchers - protests that include three car bombings, a home invasion, and death threats. Okwu investigates the trend that the Justice Department estimates has cost over $110 million in property damage and ranks as a significant domestic terror threat.
