"Good on them, I say. By the sounds of it, no actual violence broke out, just some heated arguments over the more expensive loot. How rare is that, given this kind of situation?"

"
blacks are some of the most immoral people on this earth "

I would be angry if I didn`t detect a HUGE amount of sarcasm in that.

I hope the racists are castrating themselves as soon as they read this story.

Majwhite; There were personal-type items (photo negatives) so probably a fed-ex-type ship.

Good on them, I say. By the sounds of it, no actual violence broke out, just some heated arguments over the more expensive loot. How rare is that, given this kind of situation?

"Yep, a mate of mine went down there, he was litrally adding the parts he found on the beach on to his car, on the beach.
Steering whell, alloys even a body kit.

My other mate found a Wii, it dosnt work but we are hoping it will dry out."
If the police knocked on your door, and asked if you looted anything from the ship, what would you do? Just curious.

"Strictly speaking, all those who ‘salvaged’ goods are obliged to report their finds to the maritime authorities. Uniformed officers helpfully handed out forms for them to do so."

Yeah, right. THAT`ll happen.
