He Should Be in Jail

Staten Island Ferryboat Captain Speaks to CBS 2

If you are familiar with the St. George ferry slips, and how the boats make their approach, and where the Barberi ended up, you know this guy’s head was up his ass in the final minutes before disaster struck. He should have known something was going wrong when he didn’t feel the engines cut out as the boat was supposed to be getting lined up to enter the slip. This bastard was sitting in the rear pilot house jerking off, and didn’t realize something was wrong until the boat hit the service dock. If he was at least looking out a goddamn window he would have realized something horribly wrong was going on.

He cut a deal to roll over on his boss, Patrick Ryan, that allowed him to walk way with only having to do some community service and losing his captain’s license for–count ’em–three lousy years, while Ryan went down on a manslaughter rap, along with assistant pilot Richard Smith, even though the ferry was supposed to be operating under his command.

And he doesn’t believe he got off light:

I worked for the city of New York for 13 years within many different capacities; received outstanding performance evaluations in every single capacity. It’s just very disheartening, and it’s just wrong what they did.

He thinks HE was somehow also a victim in this?

Fuck him. He should be rotting in Rikers.

UPDATE: local reax from a real victim’s kin here.
