Do As I Say, Not As I Do

I think the word that applies here is "schadenfreude."

"An Alaskan jury found Greenpeace guilty Monday on two misdemeanor criminal negligence charges that were filed after the group's ship entered Alaska waters for an anti-logging campaign without required paperwork. Greenpeace's ship came to Alaska to conduct an anti-logging campaign in the Tongass National Forest. The ship was carrying more than 70,000 gallons of "petroleum products'' at the time, court papers said. Under state law, a large non-tank vessel must file an oil spill response plan application five days before entering state waters."

Passion for demanding more regulations apparently does not extend to a passion for obeying regulations.
