Sea Shepherd founder and leader Paul Watson was arrested in Germany pending an extradition hearing to Costa Rica. This was done based upon alleged illegal activities in Central America some years ago. On Friday Mr. Watson was granted bail, 250,000 Euro (318,000 USD, 25,237,500 JPY).
It was reported he would remain in jail until Monday when the group would be able to pay the bail. It will be interesting to see the group use this as another excuse to raise money from suckers around the world.
It was Thomas Tusser who wrote "A fool and his money are soon parted" as written in his poem "Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry." Soon many across the globe will soon part with their money.
The cult group's Cabin Boy Peter Helmethead is quoted as indicating this whole affair arose due to the complicity of the Japanese whalers. Never-mind the fact in a recent IWC (International Whaling Commission) meeting Costa Rica voted AGAINST whaling.
By the cult invoking Japan it is a transparent attempt to appeal to the hate their minions have for Japan and the Japanese. A hate derived either out of jealousy or racism. But these folks keep dropping a bucket down an empty well by donating to this cult.
The group always appeals for money needed arising out of stressful situations. Money to replace abandoned or sunken vessels. Money to pay for Peter's defense in Tokyo. Money to get their vessel Steve Irwin free from Scotland. Now money needed to bail the leader out and provide luxurious accommodations in Germany for perhaps three months. - The Costa Ricans have a three month window to formally file for Watson's extradition. Consider the money given to Sea Shepherd, what has been accomplished? Has whaling in the Faroe Islands stopped? No. Has Bluefin tuna gathering in the Mediterranean stopped? No. Did the dolphin gathering in Taiji, Japan stop? No. Has Sea Shepherd deterred the Japanese from whaling in the Southern Ocean? No.
Negative results only result in continued donations. One has to bring into question the sanity of their minions. American showman P. T. Barnum would have been envious of this group as he once said, "A sucker is born every minute." - Related news article: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment...
