Cry me a river of tears

Two green taliban idiots arrested in Russia are crying a river of tears because they are being detained with charge.

It astonishes me constantly that these fools go and piss off foreign countries then moan like a hooker who wasn’t paid when they find that other countries laws are quite a bit different from ours.

British consular staff are providing assistance to two New Zealand activists detained without charge in Russia for their role in an anti-oil drilling protest. 

Jonathan Beauchamp and David John Haussmann were part of the crew of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise, which was stormed by the Russian Coast Guard last Thursday.

Mr Beauchamp, a boat mechanic, and Mr Haussmann, an electrician, were among 22 Greenpeace protesters remanded in custody for two months at the Lenin District Court in Murmansk on Thursday.

They are being detained without charge while authorities investigate whether they can lay piracy charges against the crew of the Arctic Sunrise following the ship’s offshore protests against Arctic oil drilling.

I hope the Russians do lay piracy charges…then thy can join those other pirates Sea Shepherd.
