This is a discussion on Families of Slain Somali Pirates seek U.S. Pardon and Compensation within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; geeze....***....
"Brains before Bullets"
*** is all I can say about this.
“Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.”
- Ronald Reagan
I say we compensate all of 'em . . .
Freedom ... must be fought for, protected, and handed on ... or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -- Ronald Reagan, 1967
The pirates and the their families are making this some sort of game and the US media is playing along!
"The mother of a teenager facing trial in the United States for piracy off Somalia wants President Barack Obama to pardon her son because he was misled into joining a sea gang
"My son was influenced by other gangs. He only got into piracy 15 days before he was captured. He is very young and didn't know what he was doing is a crime," said Adar Abdirahman Hassan.
"I am appealing the United States and President Obama to release my son," the mother said, adding that Muse is only 16."
Ya know, I 'hate' it when one of my teenagers says this........but this is the only thing that comes to my mind.......
"Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008
"Sometimes, when you're making gumbo, people just show up.", Leah Chase
What a freaking joke!!!
Hey Obama, I will keep my guns, my money, & my freedom...You can keep "The change"_____Government is not the solution to our problems...Government IS the problem

The kid should fry and the families should be warned that the U.S. does not use leniency when it comes to piracy.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

My mistake, when I saw a thing about Somali pirates I thought it was a thread about Minneapolis. Sorry.
