Commanders of two US Navy destroyers accused of unintentional homicide

44
The press service of the US Navy announced the sentencing of the commanders of the destroyers Fitzgerald and John McCain. Recall that we are talking about investigations in the framework of cases in two cases of collisions of US warships with civilian vessels. The outcome of these collisions was the death and disappearance of American sailors.


The US Navy destroyer John McCain 21 last August collided with a merchant ship Alnic MC in the Strait of Malacca. As a result, ten went missing and five sailors were injured.

And in June of the same year, a similar incident occurred with the destroyer Fitzgerald, faced with a container ship. Then seven sailors died.

With regard to the commanders of destroyers brought charges of negligence and unintentional murder.

It is known that in the near future similar accusations may be brought against other senior officers - command officers.

Earlier, senior officers who were part of the crew of the aforementioned destroyers were dismissed from service. Relatives of the victims put forward their claims against the US Navy, accusing representatives of the command of inadequate performance of official duties.

    Yes, it is necessary to bring charges against the Pentagon’s command in the deliberate murder of many citizens of other countries, and their own.

        So in April of that year, the reconnaissance vessel Liman also encountered a cattle truck in the Bosphorus. The truth is all alive, but the boat sank. Maybe hurried, with the steering then.

      The charges were not brought against the Pentagon command, they have nothing to do with it, but against the captains and their assistants for negligence. Another thing is that such a policy cannot continue for a long time with impunity. Damage and lawsuits will be impressive for the Pentagon as well.

        Duc, commander of the 7th Fleet, wrote last year "on his own." yes The captains, of course, are hollowers, but, however, a system is visible in such behavior at sea.

      They have an inadvertent killing, something like ours by negligence. Usually - terms are conditional. Another thing is a violation of the rules of navigation, resulting in the death of people, but this does not seem to be for the US military. They are exceptional. what

    Gone are the days as in the joke about the lighthouse, and the U.S. aircraft carrier. The intensity of shipping on sea routes is increasing from year to year. We also lost the ship in a collision, but fortunately everyone is alive. We have more trust in electronics, so we are more careless. And here is the result .

      Exactly. There are more and more ships and ships, and the seas are not becoming wider ... the whole point is this. And electronics is powerless, because the final decision always remains with the person.

        The locator works impartially and provides information. But how a person decides on this information is another question. Before you entrust independent swimming, we trained and trained in the passage of difficult sections, in limited visibility, and in conditions of intensive navigation. Now it seems that this is not so? Now in the rules of navigation it is generally impossible to go to sea without two radars (previously it was possible with one), but it did not become safer from this.

    Adequate solution. A mania of exclusivity prevents their warriors from making sober decisions. They think that everyone should be afraid of them and give way to them, even if they should give way according to the rules. For this, they and the Allies cause great irritation.

    US Navy destroyer John McCain last August 21 collided with a merchant ship Alnic MC in the Strait of Malacca.


    And in June of that year, a similar incident occurred with the Fitzgerald destroyer colliding with a container ship.

    American sailors are sleeping on the go, or something else so funny is happening to them. Soon they will begin to encounter lighthouses installed on the shore and blame the “crews” of the lighthouses for these collisions.

    It makes no sense to comment on this news until the case files are published. Empty chatter. However, I wonder how many cases are brought under the article "Official negligence" in the Russian Navy? The Mother's Right Foundation claims that between 2 and 2.5 thousand soldiers and officers die every year in the Russian army.
