Just flipped on the tv, came to FR, did a search and found this from May 4th:
Times Square car bomb suspect reportedly sketched map depicting Staten Island Ferry
No more yet, they are interviewing passengers who say that "the ferry SPED UP and hit the dock..."
TIN FOIL HAT ON.
We now have escapees from the terror watch list as ferry captain? I believe this is the same ferry that crashed previously.
Will Mayor Blooming-idiot be checking the blood to be sure he didn’t overdose on salt?
Forgot he was an artist...
Now there's a Taliban role that no one thought of...instead of photos...this guy is sitting in a saloon doing sketches. Now look on the back and see if it has GPS coords.
Control failure? Many of these vessels now have something more than a cable contol system. Either air or electronic are common and they do have failures.
“Instead of docking, the ferry angled away from its berth and slammed full-speed into a concrete maintenance pier, a concrete platform supported by pilings. The pier ripped into the ferry’s starboard side and tore into the boat’s main deck where many passengers were crowding forward to disembark. As the concrete slab entered the boat, passengers screamed and ran for cover. Some jumped into the 62 °F (17 °C) water. The accident left a number of victims trapped in a massive pile of metal, glass, and splintered wood. The accident was the worst in the ferry service’s 98-year history. The ferry’s hull, however, sustained no damage, and the vessel was never in danger of sinking.[citation need”
Yeah, it could always be a coninkydink.
I’m sure that’s how Beltway Bob Gibbs and HolyO will spin it. Me, I’m skeptical! America IS NOT SAFE ANYMORE and I blame it all on Obama!!! >:-(
Or a common Big City Union Drunk.
Maybe a drunken union skipper who has lifetime job security?
@least 12 hurt, injuries minor.
It seems that “suicide by Ferry” would be more of a San Francisco thing.
That drugged out skipper actually sued to get his job back.
While the person in charge of all transportation matters in NYC was given a pass. None other than Chuck Schumer’s wife. ta daaaaaa
Amish are supposed to be good ferry captains.....
Oh no! Not the Amish again!
If it didn’t explode, it can’t possibly be the amish...
Probably inspired by one of those evil Wall Street Executives.
