Liz Joyce wrote an article in Puppetry International touching on this a while ago; the Philadelphia Police Department apparently decided that activists making puppets to use in a street parade was subversive, so they raided the open workshop where the puppets were made, destroyed the puppets, and arrested all the puppet makers.  I think they were worried about a Seattle-style series of demonstrations.  This kind of thinking rather than a personal vendetta...

I guess  I don't understand the humor about "terrorists" and puppets.  First

I read a long time ago about that silly and illegal raid on a  group of
puppeteers
  destroying all their work, I still can't believe it, sounds to me  like a
personal vendetta
 if that is the same people you speak of
