Please don't feed the pirates

In one pirate skiff, which was riddled with bullets, the boarding party found three live pirates and the body of a fourth who had been hit by small arms fire, Commander Harbour said.
That's some good ol' fashioned victim selection fail, me hardies!

But wait! Experts don't think repelling armed boarders is a wise idea:
The death of the pirate could escalate the struggle between pirates and merchant shipping in the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean, where cargo ships increasingly carry private security operatives to repel assailants.
Yeah, lets not piss off the starving pirates and force them into being violent or anything. Just give them what they want!

And if you absolutely must resist, use something that won't hurt or agitate the pirate in any way, like a water cannon or deck chair.
