All for the whales, but why aren't they charged as pirates?

Yes i see that. A terrible decision that could have gotten all aboard killed. Well like Watson said, "people have to risk their life to protect the whales". Looks like Bethune took him seriously.

I can't even watch this show. I completely agree that this is a worthwhile cause. I have LOTS of issues with the way these people go about it. They are a bit wacko. Which is probably an understatement, but you get the idea.

I guess the cross bow and arrows don't count as weapons? What about the cannon they have been showing on this weeks preview??? That doesn't count as a weapon
