Navy to Investigate Carrier Captain's Lewd Videos - ABC News Sunday, January 2, 2011 3:42:42 PM

So much for worrying about the reactions of the "enlisted" personnel. Thank God we have officers ready to step up to the plate and "lead the way" to full acceptance..... we can only hope this is the exception!

I'm not sure I understand all this mockery business. When an impersonator makes fun of a politician, it's funny. When hairy-chested footballers dress up as women for a show, it's funny. When we hear an Irish joke, it's funny. But when a Danish cartoonist makes fun of Muhammad, it's not funny.

It's very difficult to know where the line should be drawn, or indeed if there needs to be a line drawn at all.

I'm not condoning the Carrier Captain's taste in humor or lack thereof, but I do wonder how such things can be fairly arbitered.

As I read the article it seems the Captain made and played these distasteful videos for all the crew to watch. Very impressive environment in which one can be trapped. How far can you go on a carrier?

I will leave this to you legal experts.

Here in Provincetown that kind of thing is restricted by town law, passed by the Town Council. . .one can be and it happens that people are arrested and arraingned for this kind of gay bashing.

The investigation of this officer is discussed on this evening's News. Seems he may lose command of the carrier.

QUESTION: If the Navy knew about this 5 - 6 years ago, why did the Navy wait until now to deal with the matter?

This man should be relieved because he doesn't have the dignity and sense of proportion required of command.

I agree 'J', remove him. Let others know this is 'conduct unbecoming' in my opinion.

Justin, sometimes the people making
fun of gays are using this for their own beard. Don't want to lose that high paying job, so make
sure your buttocks are covered.
I have heard of more than a couple types of these behavior traits.
Would you do it if you were making
the money that he is pulling down??
Remember DADT has been around for
17yrs.
