Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged
The USCG launches based on some predetermined criteria. It is most often they don’t have in mind a clear idea what is going on.
I’ve seen this myself through various angles. They don’t know the facts, they are in no position to be judges, they do what feels right. MOB = LAUNCH.
Where they DID make a judement was in their investigation where they did not recommend prosecution.
