Skip to comments.Tragedy on the tarmac. ( sarcastic vanity )

Today, we watched the aftermath of a tragic event on national television. A man, who appeared somewhat deranged and irrational, was shot and killed by a Federal Air Marshall.
The man, who claimed to possess a bomb , was threatening his fellow passengers and causing much chaos in the area. Even though a witness ( the mans wife ) claimed he did not have a bomb and gave reason for the mans actions, the man was still shot dead by a Federal Air Marshall anyway.
Now that it has been proven the man did not have a bomb, and presented no real or imminent threat to himself or the passengers around him, it should now be considered that the Air Marshall acted in a premature and unreasonable manner and he should be charged with murder. The Air Marshall should be dragged before a court of law and put on trial for his horrendous actions.
The Air Marshall had no right to shoot this man without "complete and convincing evidence" he possed a threat to the people in his general area. Sure, the deranged man may have acted in threatening manner and scared the people around him, he may have made allegations he had a weapon that could cause great harm, but is that any reason to justify shooting him the way they did? There was simply not enough concrete evidence at the time of the shooting to prove the man actually had a bomb. His death is a tradegy, and we all should take a long hard look at the Air Marshall who pulled the trigger.
This is definitely a job for the ACLU. They need to investigate this obviously dangerous Air Marshall and find out if he has ever shown any tendencies to act prematurely under pressure, or if he has any bias feelings toward deranged people. If it can be found the Air Marshall didn`t like people with Bipolar Disorders, that would be absolute proof he is guilty of murder , or in the least it is proof he acting improperly and should be removed from his job.
This country should rise up, and let their voices be heard that we will not tolerate this kind of barbarity anymore. NO MORE VIOLENCE, NO MORE VIOLENCE!!!
####For those of you who have not figured it out by now , this is sarcasm. But it is sarcasm with a point to be made. If you cannot see the point, my appologies. But I don`t think it is hard to figure out.###
Maybe this will make a terrorist think twice.
I'm worried that it will be an excuse to get rid of air marshals.
Between this and the recent decision to let up on what kinds of items people can carry on flights (for example pocketknives), it looks like we're trying to systematically dismantle airline security for some reason I can't figure out.
Theoretically we are allowing more items to be carried on to flights "so security can focus more on detecting explosives". One would seem to be forgetting that the problem we were having on 9/11/2001 didn't have anything to do with carrying explosives onto planes.
President Bush doesn't care abut deranged people.
What if all terrorists claim that they are "bipolar?" Hmmmmmm. This could be a way out for Saddam, Osama and Zawqawi.
The fact that it took me a while to figure out you were sarcastic is not because I am stupid. It is because your story is not all that far from reality.
I smell a lawsuit coming, and Howeird Dean is not far behind, arguing on behalf of deranged persons everywhere.
If you cannot see the point, my appologies. But I don`t think it is hard to figure out.###
Close captioned for the sarcasticaly challenged.
Oh, you absolutely know it. The ACLU is probably having meetings right now on how they will dismantle federal regulations put in place to protect airplane passengers. This could just be the case they were waiting for.
I heard the man may be Hispanic as well.
If so, no matter that it was the Air Marshall that shot him, the family will sue the LAPD.
Believe me ..this will result in investigations, pontificating, tut,tutting, hind sighting.
I am listening to the defense attorneys present all the questions that must be asked about this shooting when investigating.(We must consider that there are many bi polars flying and off their meds???).
Nancy Grace said if they do anything to the air marshals for this, she doesn't want to fly. You don't have time for a mental health evaluation of the perp while in hot pursuit.
I question the intelligence of a person who signs up on 12/8/05 just to post an inane comment like that.
I thought he didn't care about black people.
It's hard to keep track.
This isn't sarcasm, this is gun control boilerplate.
He just wants to deprive us of the pleasure of seeing who doesn't bother to read it carefully and prematurely vikingkittenizes.
Next time, lose the sarcasm qualifier and just let it loose and see what happens........it will allow for a lot more interesting responses and we get to laugh at, and ridicule those, that thought you were serious.
You were joking, right?
Get lost, troll.
You've been here for years?
Maybe you should include a liar tag on your posts.
Time for the kitties!!!
I hope you are being sarcastic </sarcasm>
