Re: USNavy Report on Fitzgerald Collision.

For the navy to say it's best for the families of the murdered sailors to drop all charges speaks volumes to the stupidity of the Navy leadership. They think they are "getting out front" of the families desires to have justice for their dead children. Im sure they plan on any objections disappearing with a payoff (bribe) to the families. The more I hear the sicker the Navy looks. Mothballs the surface fleet and the Navy Country Club.

Any time charges are brought against someone, the desired outcome is a conviction. It is obvious the Navy feels they can't field an impartial jury because of rightful fear of retaliation from higher ups if they dont decide a case on the whims of upper admirals. Hopefully a civilian trial will take place where an unbiased jury, free of Naval influence, will take place. These deaths were no accident.

Re: USNavy Report on Fitzgerald Collision.

I would like to see why the Navy feels it's in the best interests of the Navy and families of the dead sailors to drop all charges. Accountability and consequences have never been a part of the Navy, or any government agency, I guess.
