I received the call for NAVSEA HQ when this dumbass set the second fire (I know, CSB), which was the very moment everyone lost any doubt that the first was arson.  I can assure you, no tears were shed for that guy here today.

The submariner groups on Facebook have been ablaze (sorry) about this light sentence.  The way I read it: what sentence un-torches that stack of $500M taxpayer dollars?  We could squeeze him for every penny he's ever earned or will earn and it wouldn't replace one birthing compartment in that boat.

Not to say that he isn't deserving of punishment, but nothing we do un-does his crime so we're stuck with the bill, those firefighters are stuck with their lung damage, etc...

All this sh*t over "girl troubles."  What a maniac.

Has to repay $400 million? That should only take him about 400 million years.
 
2013-03-15 03:01:45 PM  
If he really needs the money, he should just call Montel Williams.

Remember the Miami!!!

$400 mil you say guess he wes his soul to the company store

He should also be charged with treason. He weakened our national security on top of everything else. Shoot him.

You just can't understand that level of stupid.

How many of those do most boats actually have?

 
2013-03-15 03:19:00 PM  
How long before he sets the prison on fire so he can go home?
 
2013-03-15 03:19:48 PM  
A more suitable sentence would be to tie his ass to the conning tower of the boat on her return to duty.
Exec, 'Chief, dive the boat.'
Chief: Aye sir, 'Dive the boat'.
Exec: 'Did you hear something Chief?'
Chief: 'Negative sir, what depth?'
Exec: 'Make your depth 300 feet.'
 
2013-03-15 03:19:53 PM  
He's gonna have to go down a bit to earn the money to pay off that fine.
 
2013-03-15 03:19:54 PM  
Did he get his stapler back?
 
2013-03-15 03:22:24 PM  
He set fire to a farking nuclear sub so he could go home early? I kinda wish the court did the same thing.

Why don't we ask the banks?  I'm sure they'd be able to answer that question several times over based on experience.

I suppose the court was unable to order him paid a $5M golden parachute, which you're right seems to be the normal result of wasting hundreds of millions of other peoples' dollars.

We gave away/lost more than that amount of cash in Iraq with no accounting. I don't see Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld being on the hook for restitution.

I think that's how it goes with a lot of crimes...
 
2013-03-15 03:34:04 PM  
Actually, regarding the "birthing" on a sub: I have to figure that a submarine is the only place where adding a newborn baby to your life would not decrease the amount of sleep you get, nor add any frustration to the wake-ups you receive.
 
2013-03-15 03:35:54 PM  
There should never be that much wood on a sub. Never.
 
2013-03-15 03:37:57 PM  
The guy's last name is Fury.  He's taken his namesake as synonymous with 'anger' too far and apparently could think of no other way of going home.  Now he will face the Furies who torment criminals.
 
2013-03-15 03:38:30 PM  
Why does it cost $450 million to fix a sub?  While the guy deserves the pokie for a long time it sounds like Navy and taxpayer was burned twice.
 
2013-03-15 03:38:45 PM  
For 17+ years you won't be going home, dumbass.

He caused $400m in damage because he was having an anxiety attack?  I wonder what how he will handle his anxiety in the PMITA prison.

Car_Ramrod: I think that's how it goes with a lot of crimes...


Usually when vast amounts of money are taken, they were taken somewhere.  Usually when something big is destroyed, it is insured.  This time, nope it is just a bunch of money that we'll spend to fix MIAMI that the asshole that took it didn't even get to enjoy, much less return.

Maybe I'm doing a bad job of stating that this is just entirely frustrating from a crime and punishment POV: the costs of his crime are just so much more massive than anything he could ever do to repay it.
 
2013-03-15 03:41:27 PM  
Like we really need f-ing Attack subs.

Just write off the loss. Put the guy in the slammer and call it a day.

What a waste of $$

We have plenty of ICBMs etc to get the job done. We don't need to keep throwing money away on tools no one wants to use and if they ever get used won't really matter anyway.

CSB:
When you fark with the military, it's treated as an act of war. A guy cut a cable on a fast attack sub going thru overhaul (a two-year rebuild) at the shipyard in Bremerton. He didn't tell anybody, and when it was found (every cable gets checked in these doings), they thought they could find him thru the cut marks on the it. They took everybody's pruning shears (the tool that was used), 80 from dayshift alone, and tried to match them like bullets. Out of the 120 or so shears (all electricians, all shifts, damn near all shipyard, along with other trades that had a use for them), they found about twenty that fit. So much for that line of inquiry...  Turned out it was a sailor assigned to the overhaul crew (skeleton crew for firewatches, funerals, and wipeing officer's butts) who wanted out of Bremerton.

" $400 million in restitution, which in cigarettes is infinity "


Okay, in other words two or three packs depending on brand.
 
2013-03-15 03:43:55 PM  
I understand the prison sentence, but what's the point of the $400 million?  He's never going to make that kind of money.  Stuff like this makes me wish we had some kind of penal colony where he could just be removed from our society and we'd be done with him, not paying his living expenses (as crappy as they are) for the next 17 years.
 
2013-03-15 03:44:28 PM  
I worked at PNS in the 80's, Shop 38 (outside machinist). Wonder what shop he worked for.


he should be put UNDER the jail.

mrlewish: Why does it cost $450 million to fix a sub?  While the guy deserves the pokie for a long time it sounds like Navy and taxpayer was burned twice.


They cost over a $Billion new, and VA-class subs are over $2B I think.  He burned up all the forward-compartment equipment, which is everything that isn't propulsion.  Just clearing all that destroyed material and re-making the interior frame is going to be hard enough, plus the cost of all the equipment and re-tooling for equipment that hasn't been produced in over 10 years.

Attack subs have the highest operational tempo of any ship in the Navy.  ICBMs have nothing to do with SSNs... and SSNs do their intended job all the time.

I agree. Despite the years of service, if there is $400 million dollars of damage, we should decommission and scrap the sub.  Regarding the embarrassment that an act of arson was able to decommission a submarine, $400 million dollars is still too much to waste on an old submarine, the Seawolf and Virginia classes should be good to build one if we really need a new attack submarine (we don't; but if they want to, name it the new USS Miami) as well as the other LA class attack submarines we still have in commission.

2013-03-15 03:49:23 PM  
Hey, submarine people:

Do subs still have a plug you can unscrew in the bottom to scuttle them?  I swear I saw that in a Nazi movie one time...
 
2013-03-15 03:49:48 PM  
How hard is it to put out a fire on a boat designed to sink?
Also, with all teh gay on that sub, I bet they could get it looking absolutely fabulous ahead of schedule and under budget just put a little butthole grease into it.
 
2013-03-15 03:50:16 PM  
I am surprised his union, yes he is a union member, didn't try to get him off.
 
2013-03-15 03:53:01 PM  
Load him on to Seawolf class sub, take him down to about 1500 ft, load him into a torp tube with some air bags strapped to him, and see what happens to the human body during rapid accent at that depth.
 
2013-03-15 03:53:32 PM  
I work on SONAR, glad none of our equipment was damaged, Sorry for all others involved :(
 
2013-03-15 03:54:22 PM  
How can you do that much damage to a sub with a fire?  Isn't there a fire suppression system on board?
