    It’s not Spanish!!The gold is from the Americas, Spain stole resources for centuries…..the colonies did not need the European countries, it was the other way around!?

    Finders keepers. Spain and any Government who jails someone who finds a treasure are tyrants.
    They should instead THROW THEM A FREAKING PARTY as a THANK YOU and at least 15% to 30% compensation plus Operational Expenses and Tax Free.

    Like indi said it belongs in a museum

  4. Steven Smith on September 2, 2022 at 2:34 pm

  5. K Beebe on September 2, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    Finders keepers.

  6. Donnell Thigpen on September 2, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    Lmao whoever found it should get it period or give them half of its worth.

  7. _CELESTiAL_ on September 2, 2022 at 2:38 pm

    Spain is entitled to their sunken war ship from ages ago because they are white. But everybody else in their treasures arenโ€™t even entitled to the land they are still standing on. they can take stuff out of Egypt out of everywhere else but they want to tell somebody else they can see the treasure that has been found. Practice what you preach maybe somebody will find you reliable

    Again comment at the end by reporter was bias. News reporters need to KNOW their jobs report but, remain impartial.!! So keep sighs, opinions and opinions off camera. Black people were enslaved, beaten, shackled, abused mentally and physically, made to work for free.. long hours, they were cargo and property that was sold on, their women and children suffered the same fate. Would she sigh if their ancestors looked for retribution for past events. The magdwline laundries, aboriginal people and abused victims got compensated…Did she sigh when that happened!? I for one see nothing wrong than righting the past.

  9. Rob D on September 2, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    It belongs to the country native peoples!

  10. M.R. RODRIGUEZ on September 2, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    And this is why one should keep quiet about it, and sell it.

  11. Brandon Diaz on September 2, 2022 at 2:41 pm

    Spain does not deserve anything

  12. Robbb on September 2, 2022 at 2:43 pm

    Spain owes the world anyway.

  13. 4rmDEC2FRE on September 2, 2022 at 2:44 pm

    these f*kn nazis. Just pure haters and devils. notice how the devil b๐Ÿ belittled the indigenous ppls claimโ€ฆ Watch these Aryan mfkas.

  14. Birdie O'Rourke on September 2, 2022 at 2:46 pm

    If Spain at least paid a finders fee then the indigenous group and the finders that salvaged it should by right be compensated. Would they prefer black market, devious people just stealing it.!!???

  15. Raezores on September 2, 2022 at 2:47 pm

    im entitled to it my body is Dominican.

  16. Cozo the Blown on September 2, 2022 at 2:47 pm

  17. Dominique Schaffner on September 2, 2022 at 2:48 pm

    Who cares…
    All the greedy bastards and their minions, lackeys and cronies will congregate like flies on a pile of dung..!
    Starting with the politicos, the courts and judges, the salvage and diving outfits, the various countries navies and police forces…etc…etc…!
    Will rip each other apart for the loot..!
    THE POPULACE, descendant of the poor SOBS who worked in the conquistadors mines,
    WILL NOT SEE A PENNY/PESO/BOLIVAR/or whatever currency..!
    GREED UNBRIDLED RULES THE WORLD..!

  18. Jaime B on September 2, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    Why would you even tell anyone? Keep your mouth shut and find a buyer who is willing to pay big money.

  19. Movie Theater on September 2, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    Finder keepers

  20. Traci Burn on September 2, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    If Columbia wanted it so bad why didnโ€™t they go after first? Someone else recovered it. They should be able to keep it.

  21. Donald on September 2, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    I would have melted that down so quickly and not said a word to anyone

  22. Poor miserable Sinner on September 2, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    If the government wanted it,then why didn’t the government go after the booty themselves.

  23. Pretty boy Floyd on September 2, 2022 at 2:55 pm

  34. Ray Simpson on September 2, 2022 at 3:09 pm

    To add toward Vinsternator40; if your ship sinks in another territory, it is there for that territory’s keeping’s and discretion of distribution of royalties and valuables, period

  35. Cat Woman on September 2, 2022 at 3:10 pm
