handling the physical violence on ships
One more thing I would like to mention is that , in my opinion, a case of molestation, physical violence, or 'manhandling', in the absence of an evidence to the contrary, the Hierarchical Justice might follow . That is, the one who is on the junior rank would have to suffer against the senior, if the claim from a senior rank person is that the junior actually 'molested' or 'tried to molest'. In my view, any case of molestation must meet a conclusion, since violence MUST essentially be curbed on board, and that evidencing often times is a very big challenge. There are enough legal support made available to the crew to protect the infringements of their rights, but ship's hierarchy works only on the basis of discipline and obedience. If that is put to question via the claim of a senior rank person claiming to have suffered molestation by a junior, if there is no evidence to the contrary such as a proof of senior having molested the junior, or that the physical built of the senior invites a challenge to claim of suffering molestation from a junior, the Hierarchical Justice should become an agreed way. that is, give punishment to whosoever is junior among those who were involved in the physical dispute.
