US Navy Seaman sets fire to a submarine!
http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/07/us/navy-su...index.html

(CNN) -- Casey James Fury simply didn't want to be at work, and in the process cost the Navy nearly a half-billion dollars and one attack submarine.

Fury admitted to setting fire to the USS Miami, a nuclear sub, in May 2012 while it was in dry dock. He was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison in March and ordered to pay $400 million in restitution -- roughly the cost of the damage.

The Navy won't see anything close to that amount from Fury, of course, but neither will it from Uncle Sam.

On Tuesday, the Navy announced that despite the demand for attack submarines being "as strong as ever," the Miami is being inactivated. The reason: Under sequestration, the federal government's forced budget cuts, the Navy simply can't afford to make the repairs.......

Hope you enjoy Leavenworth, asshole.

Wow, what a fucking prick.
And a nuclear sub! Not just a regular sub (though, I don't actually think you guys even have a regular diesel sub...).
I assume the nuclear reactor is pretty secure if not one of the most secure nuclear reactors in the world, but still..

Wouldn't it be hilarious if this guy won the lotto... only to have to give it all up to the Navy? That would be fantastic.

RE: US Navy Seaman sets fire to a submarine!
So users are mad that a person essentially wasted/destroyed $400 million dollars. But no one cares that governmental bodies stole/wasted $400 million of taxpayers dollars get a goddamn attack submarine in the first place? Dodgy

"Oh, well, granted. But he could have killed someone in the process."

Very true, and awful. But if all went according to plan, that's the entire nature of the attack sub.

I bet he had some sort of breakdown... it's too weird that someone would just set fire to a submarine just because

I guess it's safe to say that this seaman is going to have quite a lot to swallow.
