Is This The Illegal Whale Chop Shop?

Probably not the kind of case you dream of getting as a US Attorney, then again it is grabbing some headlines. Regardless of your stance on whales, whaling, Japan, or the Sea Shepherds there are laws in the US against selling or consuming marine mammals.

The feds recently charged the chef and owners of a slightly out there sushi restaurant at the Santa Monica airport with "the illegal sale of a marine mammal product for an unauthorized purpose."

You do have to ask yourself who goes to the airport for illicit whale sashimi? Maybe they chose the location to facilitate getaways...
