    So why do we taxpayers have to pay to save this idiot? Just let him kill himself by his own idiocy.

      Two reasons: It's inhumane and we don't want to put the Coast Guard in the position of deciding who lives and who dies.

          I thought of that also, but he was running if you want to call it that...maybe next time...I'm sure our hero has more plans along these lines....

            Simple solution - tell him if he tries again, they will bill him directly for the rescue.

              In San Antonio, it was such a big issue with people driving around barricades during flood events, that now anyone that drives around a barricade and has to be rescued gets the bill which can run over $5,000. Can't imagine the cost of a Coast Guard rescue...$100,000+?...but it'd only take one bill to stop him.

                  "His strategy was to catch fish, eat protein bars and sleep on a hammock inside the pod. Baluchi had planned to travel 1,033 miles from Pompano Beach to Bermuda, then to Puerto Rico, Haiti and Cuba before heading back to Florida."
