It’s a devastating tragedy.

Another shocking accident since the Malaysian plane crash.

Hope it won’t be as mysterious as the plane crash.

Arrest warrant out for the Captain who was not on the bridge and jumped ship first. WTF?

Horrendous news! The captain’s first duty is to stay with his ship and ensures that passengers get off and into lifeboats first. But here the behavior of the captain is just disgraceful and shameful. My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones and I hope there will be a thorough investigation and the families get the support and help they need through this terrible time.

None, other than it seems like Costa Concordia all over again.

Sad. It is a small and sad comfort that the victims were able to get text messages out to their parents before perishing.

“I love you Dad.” When they quoted the texts on the news, I cried, and cried. I am misting up now. Those poor helpless babies! On their way to what was supposed to be a fun, deserved holiday. The day began with them excited for themselves, having fun, and the sudden turn to disaster horror. My heart goes out to all the people suffering over this tragic loss.

Captain is an ass – jumping ship first with some of the crew and reportedly had sent out a message via intercom to the passengers to stay in their places
The Korean Coast Guard were asses for denying US naval support which was nearby and had sent out two – I believe it was – helicopters for support as soon as they saw they ship was going down.
And the South Korean Government were asses for first sending out a broadcast via media that all passengers had been evacuated from the ship _ (by now most if not all of us know this is hardly the case)

He gets the same thing as that administrator, only much much slower. Maybe drop him down a few times to revive him, then do it again.
