Shipwrecked…Read the story of Richard Parker and Tom Dudley. Is what Dudley did defensible? What would you have done?

So basically the story is about 4 blokes that decided to sail from England to Australia in 1884…as you do.  I mean honestly a lawyer bought the boat in 1883 in England and then realised that the only reasonable way to get it to Australia was to sail it.  Well that’s the first mistake of the story.

Anyhow, the boat starts having trouble and starts to sink, they manage to save themselves.

But then Dudley and one of the others decides to kill Parker so that they had food and fluids as there was in their eyes no chance of being rescued any time soon.  Mind you by then they’d been off the boat for a couple of weeks and Parker was going in an out of consciousness or was apparently in a coma.

I figure you wouldn’t know if it was a good or bad thing to do unless you were in the situation…however I wouldn’t have even bothered getting on the boat to start with.  That was their big mistake!!
