Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged

Once, in my previous professional life, I was shown a jail cell in Penn Station, NYC. itís a holding cell before moving folks out of the station. This cell was made of heavy steel. Everything welded. The walls were dented and the bars twisted. Iíve seen guys go berserk a couple of times. In high school I helped restrain the fellow, basically the front line of the football team restrained this 98 pounder, barely and with difficulty. And in boot camp something similar occurred and a guy wanted to walk out the second story window, took half the squad to stop him.

When someone looses their mind they can release an awful destructive force. You canít believe it unless youíve seen it.
