Newsweek: Over 250,000 People Sign Petition to Reinstate Fired Navy Captain

Over 250,000 People Sign Petition to Reinstate Fired Navy Captain Who Pleaded to Protect Crew From Coronavirus Spread

"Captain Crozier was unjustly relieved of duty of the air craft carrier CVN-71 USS Theodoore Roosevelt on April 2nd 2020. His crime was asking for help regarding the safety of his crew," states the new petition, which has acquired its quarter-million signatures over a period of four days. "His actions possibly saved many lives," it continues. "Although he was fired, his plan to safely remove crew members was still implemented. He is a hero who should be rewarded."
<snip>

On April 5, the Navy reported that additional efforts were underway to support the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt crew's recovery. Crozier has since tested positive for COVID-19. - Newsweek

Now 265,000 and climbing.

25. Welcome to DU, The Sparrow.

They were chanting his name as he disembarked. Hundreds of them.

Hmmm... Captain Crozier for Secretary of the Navy in the next Democratic administration. He'd be my choice, as I play one of my favorite games with myself: "What would I do if I were President?"

Glad you're here and glad you stepped up!

Every little thing.

There's an Indivisible group up here in the Portland area named for that: One Small Thing.

21. Just signed. Thanks for the link.

I knew we would have to rebuild the federal government after Trump, but it still amazes me how bad the people he has put in leadership roles really are. He has gutted the federal government of leaders with any honor or loyalty to the country. Loyalty to Trump and his corruption are the only qualities Trump appreciates.

32. Pretty sure the military doesn't work that way.

That being said, he should not have lost his job.

Hopefully he keeps his retirement.

34. Pretty sure the armed forces aren't supposed to act as boosters for Trump's approval ratings

I didn't read that in the constitution.

The rules have changed.

Roll with it or be rolled over.
