Gentlemen, Do The Honorable Thing.


The President of South Korea has already declared them guilty.  If you are looking for the Anglo-Saxon legal system and innocent until proven guilty, it isn’t happening.

The overturned ferry would seem to be from incompetence.  The captain will have to eat his words from 2010 about safety.  Having an inexperienced third mate steer at night in difficult conditions?  That wasn’t clever.

Those poor parents.  The dead kids are out of it now, the poor parents, (for many of whom, it may have been their only child), get to live with this.

Even when the crew is tried, if they get off, who will hire them?  It’s a culture that values honor and responsibility.  The principal of the school hung himself.  You may consider his only failing not checking the ferry company out thoroughly, but to be fair, I’m not sure how much that would’ve helped.

Gentlemen, the principal of the school had more principles than you.  You might be able to save some of your honor, but time is running short in your culture.

 

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
