A little breeze to clear up the fog:

Boarding any vessel without invitation is NOT Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech, and if the crew throws you back into the water, be thankful that the ship's captain didn't decide it was terrorism or attempted piracy and put a bullet between your beady eyes, as is his perogative.

Does that clear the air?

That's what I'm wondering--why the captain and crew of these hijacked ships don't just give Greenpeas the ol' heave-ho. Turn one of these greasy bastards into shark food and they'd think twice about pirating these ships.

But if nude dancing is "speech" couldn't boarding a vessel entering port?
