"It is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to…[he] is entitled to stand his ground, and meet any (life-threatening) attack made upon him with a deadly weapon…." Gibson v. KY, 34SW936(Ky.1931)
So if pirates are 'voluntary coast guard'.....Are gangs like the Crips, Bloods & MS-13 'voluntary law enforcement'?

Every time he opens his mouth, my disrespect for him goes higher.
Every time Al Sharpton opens that mouth he shows his ignorance. Dose any one respect this man?
IMO al sharpton has done more to set back racial relations than he has to help them. If he would select credible instances to protest, he would get more respect. But when he protests each and every opportunity and turns them into racial issues, no matter if they are related to racial issues or not, many thinking people tune him out. And rightfully so IMO.
It's exactly like the little boy who called "wolf!" The race card gets pulled out at every instance something bad happens to a person of color, and then when an actual case of racism occurs, nobody pays attention because the whole issue has lost credibility.
There is real racism alive and well in this country. And when racism does rear its ugly head, every good American should jump up and holler about it. But when ignorant people scream "racism" whenever a black or latino gets arrested or shot by police--despite the fact that the "victim" (grrrrr...) was a gang-banging crack-head in the middle of an armed robbery--people stop responding to the call.
Then, when the young black college honors student gets pulled over and proned out at gun point and held in jail until the "case of mistaken identity" is worked out, nobody pays any attention, because it "all" racism...
People like Sharpton have set the progress against racism in this country back by decades...
By the way, Grady--I find your Avatar racist and offensive!!!
Tawana Brawley thought he was the greatest, remember her?
+1 Grady, he exploits race for self importance, it in reality causes more tension.

I'm no Sharpton supporter but didn't he say that the pirates call themselves that? Did I hear it wrong or was he only stating a fact?
