"To this date - he has not broken the law nor has he been charged with breaking the law"
Let me guess, you know this to be true because he told you so.
It is a standard Watson lie that he has told so many times I think he may even believe it himself. He has been charged with crimes and convicted. He brags about being guilty and then doesn't show up for court. Only the lack of an extradition treaty has kept him from doing time in Norway. How about that ship he lost in Canada? That was because he was innocent? Apparently you haven't seen the show "Whale wars". Watch and you'll see him break the law in virtually every episode, you may not know it if you're unfamiliar with international laws of the sea (which a Netherlands flagged vessel is obliged to obey) and he certainly won't admit it but he does.
Indeed, people need to be educated! Regardless of how one feels about whales or whaling, the fact is Watson is a liar. He has caused injuries and and he breaks numerous laws on virtually every episode of Whale Wars That I've seen. The Japanese have reported numerous injuries caused by his attacks. Intentionally making a workplace unsafe by throwing chemicals on deck to make it slippery (slips and falls are a prime source of injuries on ships at sea) and breaking glass bottles of chemicals all over a ship are indeed criminal acts, as are boarding ships on the high seas without permission, intentionally ramming and damaging ships, attempting to disable ships and disregard of international rules of navigation (all recorded for your entertainment). Because you claim to be on a divine mission to save whales does not make it legal. It's not a fact all commercial fisheries are in a state of collapse, a quick check of NOAA data shows stable and increasing total edible seafood production. Total domestic catch is up, imports are up, exports are up, maybe it's not a good thing but that is not what I call decline. Fishing is not the greatest danger to the health of the worlds oceans. Man made Land sourced pollution and climate change for whatever reason, are the big threats to the balance of life in the oceans (as we know it) and the rest of the world to boot.
