At the meeting on the ship there were a few hundred people that were standing up for there rights.
Were their rights to a stop in Jamaica worth the death of a crew member?
This wasn't simply a decision based on some genius aprils fools joke that the Captain dreamed up. A person's life was in danger.
If a few hundred people valued their day in Jamaica more than a human life I sure wouldn't care to be around those people.
It had nothing to do with being taken advantage of!
If a person had an accident, and was dying in front of your shop, would you ignore them and keep working on the vehicle you promised to have
finished by the end of the day?
