Far from being the last man on board, that criminal suspect, Captain Schettino, appears to have deserted his command and ensconced himself in a comfy lifeboat before his own passengers were all rescued, the disgrace! It is well-known, given events of the early forties, that the Italian army operates best in retreat, and Italian battleships reverse rapidly back to port when danger threatens; but now, in the grand traditions of such seamanship, we see a fool in his folly first endanger, then indirectly slay those in his care, before decamping the shipwreck he caused to seek a quick getaway. What shameless crime, what disgrace!
