Agree you have every right including lethal force to defend yourself. Iíve racked my wingmaster with every intention to use it when someone broke through the glass slider into my house. I didnít give a rodents behind as to why they did that. Fortunately they took off.
But that has absolutely nothing to do with this scenario.
1. Crew presented no risk to the boat, captain nor crew floating in the water. Neither did he present a risk if taken back on board and immediately restrained if necessary.
2. Even if left to die his death was due to the negligence of the captain. Who therefore is culpable for that death. Furthermore whether the crew lives when another vessel picks him up or dies due his boat sailing away has no bearing on the existence of the captains negligence. The negligence occurred BEFORE the episode of violence. I can see how it maybe reflected in sentencing by the no harm-no foul rule but not on whether negligence was present.
The captain f#cked up. Due to the captains f#ck up the crew lost his mind and attacked the captain. How does this excuse the captains f#ck up?
Think you have the causal chain in reverse.
Itís all an intellectual exercise of logic to you. Have you ever been in a situation where you were isolated....and attacked physically by someone much large than you?
No one to turn to to defend yourself but yourself. If you have never been in that situation it's rediculous to comment on how you would handle that physical threat. It's not an intellectual exercise at that point anymore.
It's not the same situation as trying to get someone who broke into your house You don't really care how or why they became that way, you just choose to survive and defend yourself.
Also...He jumped off the boat. Let's call it what it is...SUICIDE. he chose to commit suicide on his own free will. What right do you have to stop him?
Only argument you have is he was out of his mind.
The only issue I have is that the captain did not alert anyone and heave to so the body could be recovered by others, That draws suspicion but there may be an explanation.
Now you want to stop an play amatuer analysis on a scenerio you are speculating on surface facts you have obtained from the news ( we know how unbiased and reliable they are) or general CG report. I prefer to wait for more facts than pontificate on theories.
What a Rediculous irrelevant t statement t..I was right about the Bounty and the crowd sourse opinion was right, therefore the crowd source option should be listened to because it was right. Really.... Even a stopped watch shows correct time twice a day.
With a person assaulting you and your crew , again who cares why he's in that state.....he is....and he's right in front of you. And then He makes it easy for you by committing suicide and removed the threat and any future threat by his own actions. I am sure they felt and we're safer with him gone.
Since we see/ here so many unverified speculation theories how about trying this one........ CG finds a boat drifting...blood everywhere...crew and captain dead by beating....one person completely missing....it's .THE MURDERER...THE RESCUED MURDERER. They determine that a rescued crew member killed everyone then jumps overboard for a second time committing suicide successfully finally.
