A woman who was escorted off an Amtrak train by police this weekend after she allegedly refused to stop talking loudly on her cell-phone has the Internet cheering her fate.
Civilians and quiet-car champions are supporting her ejection for violating policy at high volume during the 16-hour journey. It doesn't help her cause that she became belligerent when confronted about it by one of her fellow passengers.
KOMO News reports that Lakeysha Beard says she felt "disrespected" by the incident, though passengers said it was Beard who was being rude by refusing to stop yapping while sitting in one of the train's designated quiet cars.

Stories like this make me want to be a cop.
I think she was behind me in a movie once...
“you can kick me off of no train...Obama is my President”
Can you imagine having to listen to some loud mouth yenta blabbering on the cell phone for 16 hrs. Someone offer me a gun to put to my head...I’ll thank them for it.
Yeah, well.. Lakeysha has her beliggerent champions on FR, including moderators. Go figure.
This creates such a graphic image in my brain I could be thoroughly chastized by the PC police for having such thoughts.
But, it sure rings true to form.
Somehow I knew that she would be an Obama voter . . .
Woo hoo ... here we go!!!
People who think it's OK for someone to yap incessantly on a cell-phone for 16 hours in a designated quiet car?
I hope they'll come on here to explain and debate.
Lay-key-sha should wear more flattering colors, like orange. White makes her look ever so slightly overweight. :)
Well, what better place to gab for 16 hours without interruption than in a quiet car. There's too much noise in those other cars, doncha know...
This is UNACCEPTABLE.
Sure, they booted her off, but they stopped the train first.
Why did they stop the train first?
That makes me laugh.
I say HO HO HO.
white is definately not her color. I keep seeing the commercial with two guys on a chair lift and one is talking to the otherone’s X. LOL
“Throw Lakeysha From The Train” coming from Disney/Pixar 2012.
I want to know who makes that cell phone and the battery!!
