Anti-whaling activist 'boards Japanese ship'

    Since there is so much support for the Sea Shepherds on this board, I figured you guys would like to know they have "boarded" another ship. While I do not support this obvious commercial whaling, these Sea Shepherds probably should stop jumping aboard others' boats....

    Make him walk the plank.

    Or hang him from the highest yardarm.

    What is a yardarm anyhow?

    If you were throwing **** aboard my boat and just jumping on...I'd probably shoot to kill...no offense to the whales but these ppl are out of line sometimes. Hot button issue with me...I'm down with the harassment and all but they shouldnt be throwing crap and boarding without permission. They need a better method to stop the whaling..

    Is this a freaking joke?

    Citizens arrest...in the middle of the ocean!?! And the Japanese let them board? I would have shot them dead as soon as they made the attempt!

    I don't know the laws on the seas but unless they are military coming on for a valid reason, I wouldn't let anyone board my ship.

    Edit: I hope the Japanese eat him, literally!

    According to the article above he has snuck on board under the cover of night and has not yet but is planning on basically taking the captain hostage as far as I'm concerned. :dunno:

    Yeah, I re-read that and saw that.

    I really hope the hippies get what they have coming.

    If he did not ask permission to board, he committed piracy. He might make good bait.

    it's all fun and games until someone gets shot...

    Do we have a pool going yet for who's gonna get shot first, the hippies or the whalers?

    If he boarded my boat I'd simply have him removed. Right then and there. Throw him overboard and see how he does in the middle of the ocean without a life jacket in freezing water.

    What I hope happens is that no one ever hears from him again. The whalers continue on and just return home after they're done. And when asked about it they simply say they never found anyone on board. After all the other terrorist don't actually know that he made it onto the boat, they just believe he did. For all they know he could've fallen into the water off his jetski.

    Why do they need to stop the whaling? The whales they're hunting aren't endangered.

    In a perfect world that SOB wouldn't leave that ship alive or if he did he wouldn't be for long. I'd duct tape his smelly hippie *** to the explosive tip of a harpoon and launch him back into the wheelhouse of his mother ship. :steamed:

    This is my favorite part. Are they going to cry when he is held captive? Yes. But they readily admit that is what they expected.

    I fail to see the logic.

    Me thinks Mr. Bethune doesn't understand the Japanese justice system.

    They have a 90% plus conviction rate based mostly on confessions. Criminal suspects can be held and interrogated for 23 days without being charged. That's 23 days of sleep deprivation and constant interrogation.

    They won't publicize his trial or put it on TV like OJ. He won't get an international pulpit to speak out against Japanese whaling. When he is convicted of piracy in a Japanese court he will spend a long time in a very stark prison.

    I think he would be better off jumping overboard right now if the Japanese have not found him yet.
