Cruise Ship Question///Navy Question

    I have had this question in my head.
    If a person is in the Brig of a ship, Navy or Cruise ship and the ship is on fire, sinking, under attack, is it legal to leave a person locked in the brig to face grim death? After hearing horror stories of ships sinking fast or people still on board as a ship sinks, I want to know if anyone knows if it is legal to keep someone in the Brig during an emergency/ship sinking.

    Also is it legal for a Captain to throw someone off a ship? I dont mean at port I mean at sea.


    P.S.
    I know its one of those nights I ask odd questions...

    Well... the implications of leaving someone in the 'brig' when a ship is sinking would be considered murder in a court of law if I remember correctly... as long as you had the chance to let him go... I mean, shit happens sometimes y'know? I dunno for sure...

    These are some random ass questions alright.

    No it is not legal to leave someone to die a grisly death in the brig. All passengers, including prisoners, must be evacuated in case of an emergency.

    Also no it's not legal to toss an asshole overboard because they're an asshole. That's what the brig is for.

      im pretty sure leaving someone to die in the brig is illegal, and obviously you cant throw someone overboard in the middle of the ocean thats pretty much murder.

      You are obligated to help your fellow staff members, regardless of cruise ship or military vessel. Failure to do so can and will get you punished by law.

      As for workers that work in the brig areas, they are generally safe as they work as a crew just like any other part of the vessel. I'm assuming you watched a documentary of the titanic sinking when i guy got his leg pinned by a gate. In event of an emergency, these guys are the last ones out and who close the door behind them.


      "Also is it legal for a Captain to throw someone off a ship? I dont mean at port I mean at sea."
      What is this? 1800's pirates? Of course it's illegal. Most major cruise liners have detainment cells that security locks up unruly passengers inside drunkards tend to wind up here for the night.

      The questions you're asking can be answered by common sense.

      The security team in charge of the brig would be responsible for any prisoners they have in their charge. It would be considered negligence and murder to leave the person there to die in the even of a catastrophic emergency.

      The Captain on a naval ship, and many of the officers do have the ability to dispense justice on their ships (ie, charges, defaulters, ect), but death sentencing is beyond their grasps to do on a ship. It would have to go to a higher level of justice in a state that allows that sort of thing.

        Throwing someone overboard takes energy. I'd just "accidentally" push you over after I lace your food with ipecac and you're busy throwing up over the side of the ship.

          The ipecac is not necessary; all they have to do is look in your general direction.

            You should learn how to swim well and captain should be the last person to leave the ship when it's sinking (not always happens though).
