Life in the States IS a death sentence in my mind... just a very slow and tortured one... unlike the UK where Life = 15yrs..

Pretty sure the prison in which they will now reside is like a resort compared to the **** hole they came from.

Re: Justice for SV/Quest crew announced

So Jean and Scott Adam and their two friends are dead and the Somali pirats who murdered them are alive. It seems the Somali's have established an imbalance in nature. The jury failed in it's duty to re-establish balance. Injustice is the result.

Sam, the victims were Americans, so obviously this is something to scoff off about and make snide remarks. Sorry, but we are the "bad guys" now. I never thought I would miss the USSR.

Cheers!

Re: Justice for SV/Quest crew announced

How can you people make excuses for murder. Oh, I forgot. the lives of American cruisers don't matter as long as someone somewhere is wacked by the US Government. So pathetic.
