Question Does Anyone Actually Believe This?

Russians Let Pirates Go? (click here)

Quote:
MOSCOW – The pirates seized by a Russian warship off the coast of Somalia have been released because of "imperfections" in international law, the Defense Ministry said Friday, a claim that sparked skepticism — and even suspicion the pirates might have been killed.

Authorities initially said the pirates would be brought to Russia to face criminal charges for hijacking a Russian oil tanker. But Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Alexei Kuznetsov told The Associated Press on Friday that the pirates had been released.
I think they decided they didn't need the extra drag going back to Mother Russia................and dumped them overboard.

And I have mixed emotions about it if that's what happened.

I have no problem whatsoever if they killed them while trying to board.

However, if they captured them, had them safely in custody and then murdered them............that seems pretty uncivilized in my opinion

I'm guessing I will be in the minority on this subject too.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

I think the Russian Navy has a few more small boats, and small arms. Released: Probably released, like I release an Alligator Gar when I catch him. Missing parts and bleeding and attracting other fish.

Re: Does Anyone Actually Believe This?

Doesn't really bother me. Pirates? What good are they? They board ships, and STEAL, which I thought was wrong. You know just as good as I do, that if they were to put them in jail, just as soon as they got out, they would continue thier ways. As far as I'm concerned, thats a few less that the shipping companies have to worry about.

Right is right and wrong is wrong, once taken into custody they should be treated humanely. And if it is deemed that they can't be charged should be released period. Enforcing the law is one thing but making it up as you go along makes you a thug / Pirate yourself

You can't have everything....where would you put it?

Re: Does Anyone Actually Believe This?

If your going to just kill them you should do it boarding the ship or just sink the whole damn thing. If you capture them first its kinda like shooting fish in a barrel.

Don't get your panties in a bunch, you love that 5hit just as much as a heavily tatted guy who says "whata you looking at?" When people peg him.

As far as the pirates? I'll side witth maritime law.

Doesn't roll with anyone or tag along to be cool...

Re: Does Anyone Actually Believe This?

Why would "international" law apply if they were taking the pirates to Russia to be tried under Russian law?

Russian law allows for a military tribunal. If the pirates were found guilty during such they could be subject to a firing squad. If this was the case Russia should own up to it.

As far as I am concerned pirates should never be brought into custody, sink them and be done with it. But if you are going to bring them into custody be prepared to treat them according to the Geneva Convention.
