These were not smugglers they were regular people. This seems to be over the line in my book.
Wonder if this had anything to do with the major marijuana busts that recently went down locally. Especially since they wanted access to the bilges.
I've read the article. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't it state that the USCG did their stunt over the entire Monterey Bay?
So, how come we haven't heard anything from the tree huggers in Santa Cruz harbor or the hot heads in Monterey harbor? Santa Cruz has folks that stay on their boats and so does Monterey.
Interesting that the Coasties ran their RIBs across the bay in the dark. Moss Landing isn't exactly twenty minutes away from the station in Monterey and the mouth of the harbor isn't really fun to navigate at night.
It's starting to sound like they were after something...
There are no "regular people". There are samuri, peasants, and outlaws. Only one of those groups has freedom. Get with the program!
How do you know that? Posters here seem to be pretty quick to presume the intentions of the CG, why not the boaters? Of course, the boaters would never lie, would they?
