Too lenient. Just publish violators' name and country of origin.

In my home town of Washington DC we started doing this and it has worked well. Once the actual ambassadors saw they were going to be or were being put on blast, they put their foots down on their staffs and their staff's dependants.

Once the DC PD started posting the lists, it turned out that most of the offenders were not actual staff members/diplomats, but their families.

I agree with the idea of diplomatic immunity, it would be too easy to throw a diplomat in jail over a fraudulent parking ticket as a matter of protest over that countries actions.

In this situation I think the public pressure concept is the best way to go.

I do not doubt an object being out there, there is a lot of things in the ocean, especially in this area.

My interest is in why was the vessel was doomed by it? Sounds like something intrinsic to the boat failed. Structure, pumps, training, etc.

Great job for all involved!
