Arm the crew!

I mean, how can a tanker that size – it’s a town on water – be so vulnerable to a pack of underweight thugs?

The underweight thugs had guns.

Seriously – I don’t get the argument against arming a few folks on planes, ships and campuses. If bozos like me in the media are protected by armed dudes at every turnstile, why can’t we have the same for undergrads or seamen?

I also get the argument that no employee of a company needs to risk his life to protect cargo that isn’t his. But tell that to Brinks.
