Capt. Jim Staples: Captain on capsized cruise ship engaged in “complete dereliction of duty”

Retired captain Jim Staples speaks with CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien about the capsized cruise ship, black boxes and the captain’s duty.

Staples says, “There was no reason for that captain to abandon that ship and leave the passengers to fend for themselves.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week mornings at 7-9am ET on CNN.
