Name: Francesco Schettino
Occupations: cruise ship captain
Last Seen: Italy
Bee-otched For: putting himself in front of women and children
For almost this past week, the news has been buzzing about the cruise ship Costa Concordia, which ran aground on some rocks and sank off the coast of Italy. As of this publishing, 11 people are dead and many more have been injured.
Many speculate that the ship's captain, Francesco Schettino was showboating during the disaster and didn't cooperate when his ship was sinking while hundreds of peoples' lives were being in danger.Schettino abandoned ship, long before everybody else did. As a matter of fact, while the ship started to tilt, an announcer told everybody on the intercom that everything was OK and that a slight tilt was normal.
But in the end, the ship started to sink while its passengers were freaking out.
Of course, Schettino's life is now at stake, being charged for manslaughter and abandoning ship. His lawyers contend that he is innocent, and that the rocks he hit couldn't be seen.
Ya know, Schettino was a wuss for what he did. If I were captain, I would warn the passengers to abandon ship and be the last one off, dead or alive. Remember Sully Sullenberger? He accidentally hit some birds with his plane, but proved to be a hero for landing his plane in the river, saving all on board. Sully's a hero, Schettino's a pussy. Period.
I hope this jerk gets life for what he did. His ship's the one that's sinking now.
