Well listen to the Coast Guard telling the ship"s captain to get back on board and the captain pussing out and refusing.

Kegomatix and Gary8162,
I agree with both of you. When you accept the job and accept the pay, you accept the duty and responsiblity to put the welfare of others first when poo goes sideways. To be clear I am not defending the guy.
If you`ve ever have had the opportunity to see how you would respond, as Gary has you`ve also had the chance to observe others. Some whom you were sure would be solid, just crumble, and vice versa. Oddly enough, my most irritating, unmotivated soldier during day-to-day humdrum operations (She reminded me of the spinster chicken from Foghorn Leghorn cartoons), was the one who turned out to be the most stable when things got interesting.

Your right. No one knows how they`ll react in a situation like that. However, as someone who has had no training (other than basic first aid), I can tell you this. There have been a lot of times when my insinct to run from danger has won out but that was when my own life weas threatened. I can distinctly remember 4 separate times when I was in the wrong place at the right time and helped save 4 people from certain death. The instinct to run was overcome by the instinct to help or maybe better put, the instinct to not see a bad situation get a lot worse. I don`t know.
My point is this. I`ve had no training and still I acted to help. This captain HAS had training but didn`t act. That`s his character flaw and it should have been found out long before now.

Amazing how many people get a very high wage because they have a "high level of responsibility" in their job. And as soon as things turn sour they run as fast as they can.

Lardcarcass, it was his sworn duty to stay and coordinate the rescue until every last person was off the ship. If he didn`t like the idea, he shouldn`t have ever become a captain. Cowardice at its finest.

I see a lot of people here calling for his head on a stick for being a coward, but I wonder how many of us would do the right thing if we were in his shoes.

Don`t get me wrong. He needs to be investigated, taken to trial, and probably punished for the negligence and failure to perform his duties.

But we don`t really know how we would respond when our own necks are on the line until we have actually experienced the situation.

Never has a man been so unworthy of command.

Tosser deliberately takes a dangerous deviation from course against orders to show off in front of his mate the local mayor, flubs the evacuation, abandons ship before his passengers and refuses to reboard the ship to take command of the evacuation and assist in the rescue.

Furthermore, seeing as only a few trapped below failed to get out, it was not even as if the situation was rapidly deteriorating. It didn`t exactly snap in half and slide quickly under the waves.

I bet he has a few regrets...

Unbelievable. And according to the BBC report I heard tonight, after that conversation, the captain never went back on board.

Coast Guard was an idiot too. This isn`t time for a pissing contest when people are dying. Could have been way more convincing with the cowardly captain than that.

Fatninja01 yes but this seem to be the only good thing he have done, the rest was just madness. And latest news talk about that the fact the ship came closer to the shore after the crash was just for accidence. We will see.

Apparently he once he knew he was in trouble, he dropped anchor to turn the boat closest to shore

I hate this guy. I just got off a 7 day cruise over the new year, this absolutely terrified me. nobody knew how to use the lifeboats, so wtf did we spend an hour in the sun practicing for? and then the captain just abandons ship? WTF? the captain of the titanic was at least brave and stuck by his DUTY as CAPTAIN of a SINKING SHIP. YOU DONT ABANDON THAT!!

@ madest: So far, most evidence points to it being his fault the ship ran aground in the first place, most likely due to negligence.. It would probably still land him in jail for 4 years or so.. Abandoning his responsibility on top of that, i really hope he gets life in jail..

De Falco: "How did you get him back on the ship?"

Don Corleone: "I made him an offer he couldn`t refuse."

Jeeeeezus.

You can tell the Coast Guard officer, De Falco, is past his BS limit with this situation. Get your ass back on board, "captain," and do your job.

What a horrible tragedy; a cascade of mistakes and negligence. First the route change, then the delays in getting the passengers off the ship, then the captain (and other officers) abandoning everyone...I expect it`ll be magnified as this works it`s way through the Italian legal system.

So the Captain is a chickenpoo. And this chickenpoo is almost certainly going to be convicted of manslaughter and abandoning ship which will probably net him 12years or more. I bet this chickenpoo captain really regrets not manning up and doing his job, for if he had he would today be considered a hero. But no. Chickenpoo captain Schettino is pooting bricks over what is now going to happen to him. Why does this make my schadenfreud erect?

Wow! That Coast Guard guy is MAD!
I guess this dispells any doubts about Schettino not abandoning his ship, eh?

I am not familiar with maritime law/justice. I imagine we will all find out how it gets dispensed soon enough.

In the event of a disaster it is the captains duty to coordinate all emergency procedures.. This man abandoned both passengers and crew, and should be jailed for murder..
