Sea Shepherd :: Cove Guardian situation update: Truth is stranger than fiction
It is now early in the morning of March 13 in Taiji and things are calm. No one was arrested and that is the problem. Yesterday’s events would not be believable if they were to appear in a screenplay. An angry mob of delusional delinquents managed to humble the police and control the situation.
The irony is not lost here. We do appreciate that the police put themselves in jeopardy to protect the Cove Guardians. The five Cove Guardians involved are particularly grateful. Cove Guardians are not the most likeable folks in Taiji, but the police do have the duty to enforce laws and keep the peace even if they find it disagreeable and dangerous.
