    Erik "GI Joey" Prince of Blackwater Mercenary Company Wants to evade justice by using Sharia Law. Funny Idea for a Crusader


    [...]
    why would a company that enjoys immunity from local laws (see: Iraq) ask for Sharia (an Islamic system of law often applied to day-to-day disputes)? Because, according to Sharia, a company wouldn't be found responsible for mistakes employees made.

    This tactic is galling, but we'd expect little else from the company and its founder. The actions of Blackwater employees indicate that the law matters little to the company, but really, they'll go with whatever frees them from accountability.
