Legally it was "attempted piracy", NOT piracy.

unfortunately, they were charged with PIRACY, and not ATTEMPTED piracy, which are two different things --- had they been charged on the "attempted" cause, it is highly doubtful the judge would have dismissed, because that is precisely what they did, but did NOT fullfill the legal description of PIRACY !

bad mistake by prosecution actually !

I wonder if the judges decision would have been different if his son was as one of the ones being shot at on th ship...

Guns, planes and bombs arn't what will destroy this nation, our own selffessness and stupidity is all that it's taking. Just look what our President is doing..

One has to go to law school! And these are the "philosopher-kings" that the Dems want to put in charge of our lives! Actually, it is our own fault--we have allowed judges to assume this exalted status by according them unquestioning deference. "We the people" have fashioned the knot and happily placed it around our own necks....Sad, but true!


Question for the judge

Does that mean that if somone shoots at you they haven't committed attempted murder? What a moron.


Not piracy - Then what?

OK, the judge didn't want to call it piracy. But they shot at us, did they not?

Does that not count for anything done wrong?
