#1 Bethune's wife: Japanese will make an example of himSonnabendGuest03-12-2010, 04:04 AM
Kiwi anti-whaling activist Peter Bethune is expected to be arrested by the Japanese authorities when he arrives in Tokyo today on the whaling ship Shonan Maru 2.
Bethune has been held on the harpoon ship after a collision which destroyed his own boat last month.
Japan’s coast guard has an arrest warrant for him on suspicion of trespass and his wife Sharyn, who hasn’t heard from him for almost a month, fears Japanese authorities may make an example out of him. If convicted, Bethune could face imprisonment of up to three years.
I am still to be informed just WHAT authority he had to make said "arrest"....well we know that answer to that...none.
Some days are just GOLD.....:D

White man in a Japanese prison? He won't survive that 3 years.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
