Default US Coast Guard Jumps on Semisubmersible Vessel

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn...rnd/index.html

“The US Coast Guard released a video on Thursday that showed exactly how one might intercept a fast-moving narco-sub on the high seas -- netting over 16,000 pounds of cocaine in the process.

The event, a video of which was released on July 11, took place on June 18 in the East Pacific Ocean. In the minute-long video, a member of the Coast Guard is heard yelling at a semi-submersible vessel tearing through the ocean -- a half underwater and half exposed vessel -- and demanding it stop.

Members of the guard then jump on the submarine-like boat, eventually forcing the top open to reveal the smugglers inside.“

Nice. What I don't understand is why prosecute them. Just scuttle the boat and them with it.

Dude has some hard boiled eggs. It constantly amazes me that there are people out there willing to put it all on the line for something bigger.

There’s no way I would do that. Maybe give me a flash bang to drop down that hatch and maybe but I sure as heck wouldn’t beat on the hatch and wait for someone to open it up and pop me in the face. That guys out of his mind.

That boarding was sketchy for sure. They could have put a few holes in the back and waited for those dudes to swim out. Seems like a whole lotta unnecessary risk to our CG.

Unfortunately dealing with criminals is a necessary risk, grateful we have people willing to do it. Much respect and admiration for all who serve and recognize the greater good.

It'd be fun to drop a grenade down that hatch and shut it. If that's how they handled that problem every time people wouldn't be so quick to do it.

True.....but on the other hand it's hard to stay in business when your employees die when they go to work.

Should have started and ended with the 50 cal. Let the air out of it and go home.

They missed a golden opportunity to make a brand new artificial reef!!
Kuddos to the USCG however!!! For many, many years it's been one of my pet peeves when people start bad-mouthing the CG... Anyone who ever ventures out in salt water has the potential of placing their lives in the hands of the U.S. Coast Guard!! They are well trained, well prepared and some of the best, most dedicated to their service that I have ever known. When you're 50 miles out in the GoM and have a hole in your brand new boat big enough to loose a 48 quart Igloo cooler through it, The sight of the "Valiant" USCG Cutter coming in hard and fast is a very good sight indeed!

Tear gas down the hatch, or a limpet mine to the hull.

They ended up burning that semi-sub after they removed the people and the drugs.
In reference to the other people who say that a .50 cal would have solved that quickly, true. Then they would have nothing to bring home to prove that their mission is worth the tax dollars, they can't get information out of the smugglers, and the Coast Guard is pretty big on PR. They don't want to be seen as the "bad guys" in any sense of the word.
