(Yahoo)   You're a painter and you want to get out of work early. Do you: a) fake an illness, b) just leave and hope no one notices, or c) start a fire that causes $400 million in damages to a USN submarine?   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 193

I'm pretty sure you can fart too hard and cause $400M in damage to a Virginia, but it takes a bit more work to do it to a Los Angeles.

Fury could face life imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000 and be ordered to pay restitution

If you're going to face a huge debt, you might as well go for $400 million. Owe a million and you can imagine you might work it off some day or make a deal. But you probably won't. Owe half a billion and you are free from the disappointment that follows hope. You can give the feds the finger.

That's OK, we can rely on Canada's superior submarine firepower.

FTFA: Fury told Timothy Bailey, the polygraph examiner and a NCIS agent, that "his anxiety started getting really bad" so he grabbed his cigarettes and a lighter, walked up to a bunk room and set fire to some rags that were on the top bunk before returning to work.

Well who doesn't like a nice, warm bed waiting for them after a hard day's work?

Boy, is this numbnuts going to be out of work early after he scores life in prison.

You can possibly do a lot of damage by farting too hard.

The Navy originally said the fire started when an industrial vacuum cleaner sucked up a heat source that ignited debris inside the vacuum.

that he had failed to admit his involvement...because he was scared and because everything was blurry to him and his memory was impacted due to his anxiety and the medication he was taking at the time.

This is exactly the kind of guy I want working on our subs.

Fury eventually admitted to setting the May 23 fire after agreeing to take a polygraph examination on Friday. When the polygraph examiner told Fury he wasn't being truthful in denying his involvement in the fire, Fury admitted he had caused the fire, the affidavit said.

I'm not going to say that the guy shouldn't go up the river for this....that's a major fark-up, and he's going to do hard time in a federal prison.....but don't make it easy for the man to slam dunk your ass.

Two rules to remember:

1) A polygraph is not a lie (or truth) detector. It's an interrogation tool.
2) The examiner is always going to tell you you're being deceptive.

that's b.s. they want to throw this guy in prison. sure, he farked up big time. he also is going through a crapload of problems in his life right now. he should have been pulled from work and collecting workmens comp or disability while he was recovering from what ails him. he was probably in fear of losing his job. job goes, money goes, insurance goes and wham you're homeless.

many employers treat ill employees like crap. you're fine as long as you're a work horse but the minute you fall ill you're screwed. you probably know someone that happened to yourself. nothing like kicking a guy when he's down.
 
2012-07-23 05:56:57 PM  
If convicted of either charge, Fury could face life imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000 and be ordered to pay restitution

Well, that should only take him about 15000 years to pay off.

If you stiff the bank on a $400,000,000 withdrawl they're going to hit you with a $35 overdraft fee and have you blacklisted from having a checking account for the next seven years.

Did you completely miss the part where he committed arson, and caused $400 million in damage to a government asset?
You know, a government asset that had other people working on it, is a confined space with very limited means of egress in an emergency, one with a nuclear reactor on board?
He can get some counseling in a therapy group in PMITA prison.

My lawyer told me that no competent lawyer would ever let one of his clients take a polygraph. There is literally no conceivable advantage to it at all.
 
2012-07-23 06:05:31 PM  
Everyone, let's keep this in perspective. Someone who works in a job like painting is obviously there because he's not exactly tipping the scales in intelligence, so something like this is not altogether extremely unexpected.

I've heard of hot bunking in subs, but this seems a little extreme.

Don't they have, like, serious fire suppression equipment on submarines because you seriously don't want a fire in your only pocket of air while under water.

Also, wouldn't the crew performing maintenance on the ship require pretty high clearances because they're about to poke around parts of the ship 95% of the crew never know about. You'd think anxiety would be one of the things they'd deny a clearance for because an anxious person would be easy to blackmail.

Considering it could be considered a terroristic act (he did repeat) I could honestly see them making an example of him. He broke a VERY expensive piece of military hardware...

Sailors could have died. With that in mind, hopefully this guy will get an appropriate sentence.
