A $500,000 Port Authority patrol boat sank this month after a veteran police sergeant took the advice of a clueless civilian safety instructor — and opened a hatch while it was under water, The Post has learned.

“It was like opening a window during a carwash,” one PA insider lamented of the screw-up off Breezy Point, Queens, that left 11 people scrambling for their lives.
I am speechless. I am...without speech. :rolleyes:

Very expensive way to weed out the folks who rose through the ranks, found their highest level of incompetence and proceeded to prove it beyond doubt.

I am just thankful we have unions in place to protect the 'common man' like this sergeant...
