Re: Cruise Ship Costa Concordia - MERGED THREADS

‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino of the Costa Concordia hands himself in to start prison sentence after his final appeal was rejected......

Quote:
“He said ‘I trust in the justice system, the verdict must be respected. I’m handing myself in right now’,” his lawyer Saverio Senese said after speaking to Schettino by telephone.

Re: Cruise Ship Costa Concordia - MERGED THREADS

I somewhat take issue with the title'Capt Coward' because, while he alledgedly did leave his vessel before several of the passengers and crew, there was a lot of confusion over when he actually left the vessel.
More factually, he was involved with one of the female crew, showing off his prowess by passing too close to the island to salute his former mentor who had retired there and my not have even been on the bridge but was otherwise involved with his romantic interest!
I heard this from one of the bridge officers who was aboard the stricken ship at the time.
Of course, they are all Italian and affairs of the heart are very important to them.
My guess is he was thinking with his little head rather than his big one!
Cheers, Phil

I take exception with the "Capt" part.

He's a disgrace to any self-respecting seafarer.

Just one guy's opinion, but I think my reasons are sound.
