What does his post say? Not much, he just brags about how fast his train`s speeding and posts a pic of the speedometer.

as for your "the crew carries responsibility too" argument.. No they don't. He`s the captain, they are crew. you`d need a very very good reason to disobey a command from your captain as that is mutiny. i think you need to remember that the sea is a cruel mistress, and that you need a well maintained ship and a crew that functions as a solid unit.

and ohno, i do agree with you, partly.. the buck should stop with him, so he should be held responsible for what happened, but he shouldnt and i am glad that he didnt find himself alone in this. cause the crew should know what they are doing too and as such bare part of the responcibility. but his crew or more precice, those responcible did see penalty come their way, as should schettino, the thing is though, it is unfair and indeed unrealistic to claim it is all on the captain.
Yes the buck stops with him, but not soly him, his is partly responcible and therefor partly to blame, but no more then partly.

Its like bringing criminal charges against a police commisionar cause some police men under him misbehave. yes he is responcible, but not soley

about the story you read, well, we know how the media behaves in top line stories. they have a lot to be ashamed of, lets leave it at that.

Does Schettino need to own up and take responcibility? yes, but if you indeed have a family of seafarers, then you should know that the captain does not necesarily 'drive` the boat, hell, in most cases, as in this case, he didn`t.
Even the lawsuit against him now is not that he is guilty of what happened, but he is guilty of neglect of helping those incapable of helping themself. this at best is a debate of somantics. He will however most likely never be a captain again.

btw, i will ad a link about 5 other crew members being convicted for fault, schettino wasnt part of that lawthingy as he will face a responcibility case, which is, lets face it, not the same as `you did it`
