Friday a federal judge unsealed 48 search warrants the FBI requested which allowed them to search homes, attach tracking devices to cars, search e-mail accounts and examine daily the trash of Pomona, California activist Josh Connole and his girlfriend. The warrants reveal why the FBI originally targeted Connole and that they discovered hair fibers at the scene of the 125 burned out and vandalized Hummers and SUVs, which is why a judge order Bill Cottrell to supply a DNA sample. The arson was commited in the name of the Earth Liberation Front. Cottrell was arrested after an e-mail he sent to the media, telling them that Connole was innocent, was traced to his school.
