Hey ADAM MALINOWSKI get serious these so called Native Americans (indians) have way too many rights and when they break the law like these two idiots did, they get a slap on the wrist!! How do you expect people to have any respect for your people when they keep breaking the law and pretty much get away with it!!! When they do break the law it is the tribes that punish them, and we have all seen the slap on the wrists they get!!! These fools should loose their rights to fish forever!!!The same is true with the casinos they answer to the bureau of indian affairs.You think I am envious of Native Americans, I do not think anybody is envious of your people!! I think there was a time when the indians in this country were a proud people, but I think those days are long gone!! If the members of these tribes want to keep breaking the laws of this state,then perhaps the indians need to have their rights revoked!! One way to get these tribes to act would be to boycott their casinos!!!

Wouldn't you have to believe that these two American aboriginal people felt that, on balance,

it was monetarily worthwhile to fish illegally,

and the profits made from these illegal activities, could be used to pay the “slap-on-the-wrist” fine,

they knew would be meted out by their “court system”, and prevailing sense of justice?

Money, fines, and profits, the culture is the same in any culture .

I think the sports fisherman of Michigan should file a class action suit against the tribe or tribes that have these idiots as members. How can the bays build back up with fish, when these shameless indians keep taking them out!!! If the people of this state would ban together and boycott there casinos, we would probably get their attention!! If these indians want the rights to fish as their ancestors did,they should use the same methods!! Let them make a birch bark canoe and a spear and have at it!!

They'll probably get a 350 dollar fine this time. That will teach them.
