Putting human lives in danger to play reckless vigilante?

Yup, sometimes you have to take a risk in order to do the right thing. Just ask any fireman or police officer. Mankind is sh*tting all over this planet. I think it’s rather cool to see a group give a damn.

The problem is that they are not risking just their own lives. They are also risking the lives of the Japanese crew and any emergency/military personnel that would have to respond to a situation THEY caused. It's reckless and irresponsible.

Oh please, let's not compare these goons to fire and police personnel. That's just offensive.

If you think they are risking the lives of the Japanese crew you clearly have never seen the show. If anything it's the Japanese threatening the lives of the Sea Shepherd volunteers when they run over their boats.

I've read some crazy stuff on the internet, but this takes the cake. WOW! The firefighters and cops who ran into the World Trade Centers are true heroes unlike these wannabe vigilantes trying to play sea police.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

You mean when the vigilantes attempt to use their vessels as weapons and cross paths with Japanese ships. Those moronic goons are among the worst sailors on the open seas. When you intentionally position yourself to pass directly in front of a massive ship and you get runover...there is no one else you can blame for it. I have seen the show and I have watched where their own stupidity has left them stranded and their ships disabled.

Come on now people, it’s all about doing what’s right. It’s not about anyone’s title or profession. No need to spin things just to avoid the truth. People take risks when it’s the right thing to do. Should mankind continue down the current locust path we’re on? Commercial whaling was banned in 1986. Paul Watson and company are simply trying to enforce the ban. If Japan and others honored the ban, Paul Watson would be out of work. I wish we had more like Paul Watson on this planet.

They have no authority to do so and only put lives at risk by doing something they are not mentally or mechanically capable of.

Wow, could you possibly BE more uninformed? The Japanese Ministry of Fisheries canceled their illegal whale slaughter indefinitely last Feb. specifically because of the brave and selfless efforts of the Sea Shepherds. It's over, whales 1...murdering Japanese scum 0.

"We're down here doing what we're doing taking every precaution, to ensure that nobody is injured. We've never injured anybody, but we're against an opposition that is literally trying to kill us if they could. If they attempt to come back...we will be here." -- Capt. Paul Watson

Sometimes heroes wear fireman's helmets in NYC. Sometimes they wear captain's hats. But they all risk their lives to save lives. And our hats should be off to them.

No, it is not over. You have not been keeping up to date. They aren't saving lives...they are risking lives. They Japanese are returning.

If we’re keeping score at home, the Japanese fleet sank one of Paul Watson’s ships and endangered the lives of all onboard. So as I see it, Paul Watson is saving lives, the Japanese fleet is risking lives. The proof is on video! If your agenda is to avoid endangerment, you’re backing the wrong camp bud.

Yes, the proof is on video. The vigilantes were the cause of that mishap and put their own lives at risk. Once again...proof that they are poor sailors. They should leave the enforcement of laws and regulations to those with enough mental power to avoid pulling int the path of a much larger ship.

I don't believe it is pro/anti whale slaughtering at all. I'm certainly not pro-slaughter. I am anti-vigilante though. The Sea Shepard goons only believe they are risking their own lives. They have no care or concern for anyone else who might be drawn into danger by their idiotic tactics. Not to mention the financial impact on any government and its citizens that would have to respond and assist anyone in harms way due to a situation THEY caused.

Let's see, it's cool to kill off the awesome endangered whales for profit while pretending to be doing "research". Right. It's the whales' fault for getting in the way of the harpoons.

And if a becalmed, tiny boat which has run out of fuel gets intentionally rammed by a mad, murderous sea captain of a giant ship...it's the tiny boat's fault for...what...getting in the way of the ramming ship's prow???

Man, how brutally twisted do you have to make the logic to start justifying murder and inhumanity? It's like saying "It was the fault of all those damned people who were overpopulating our concentration camps!"

Basically, Yeah. If they weren't there, they wouldn't be having that problem. They'd be better off staying home than acting as Pirates on the high seas.

BTW, no Japanese on their giant ships have EVER been bodily threatened for one second by any actions of the Sea Shepherds. Anyone who suggests that is a liar.

Yet the Japanese have ALWAYS attempted to endanger the physical safety and lives of the Sea Shepherds through direct ramming, sophisticated sound cannons, water cannons, huge steel bolts shot at the SS crew, etc etc. The Japanese have no problem killing whales OR humans. It's all the same to them.

So you're openly justifying premeditated murder. You must have been thrilled when Casey Anthony got off! Hope you don't live near me. Is there some neighborhood watch list of guys like you I can get, like the list of child molesters the government hands out? That would be very useful.

Yes, I would definitely play the TZ theme for anybody in here who justifies premeditated murder. That is scary.

Suggesting it's ok to kill them just because "they're there". Wow, creepy. I imagine that's the same excuse Scott Roeder used as well. You're in good company.
