    I am sure that those aboard that boat are telling the Authorities that while they were pulling in the net they didn’t realize they had such a big catch. If ya know where to fish ,it is amazing what you can catch.
    It is about time the Coast Guard sink those boats a give the occupants de chance to swim ashore.

    Logic and strategy, lets for once take and learn some sensible policing in some countries. Grug seizures , on land impound vehicles , prosecute the owner , impose a heavy fine , seize the vehicle. impose a probation of a couple years on the person, and do the same at sea. good catch. But…

    My take , we need to stop and search , at sea , stop and an search on land , persons and vehicles.

    Try this one people, in Jamaica, the police done a stop and spot check on a vehicle, to they surprise the vehicle was full of stolen pigs, yonk , yonk , parties jump from the vehicle and ran, but was chased and caught. simple stop and search.
