Plane Diverted to JFK After Altercation

NEW YORK — A flight to Puerto Rico was diverted to John F. Kennedy Airport shortly after takeoff early Sunday because a fight broke out on board, officials said.

Three women were questioned and one was briefly detained, FBI spokeswoman Christine Monaco said. The FBI was still investigating and would decide later whether charges would be filed, Monaco said.

It appeared that one woman had started a fistfight with the other two, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the area's airports.

The fight took place on JetBlue Flight 561, which had taken off from Newark Liberty International in New Jersey and landed at JFK about an hour later, said airline spokeswoman Jenny Dervin. The plane took off again from JFK about an hour later with the remaining 147 passengers and six crew members, she said.

What in the world would Cynthia McKinney be going to Puerto Rico for?

No. What happened in Jersey didn't stay in Jersey - they diverted the plane to New York to impose some law and order.

You know, the whole Cynthis McKinney thing could have been avoided, if rather than distributing a picture of the woman, just a statement saying, "If some rude woman comes barging through without proper ID, and she looks like a surprised large mount bass, it's Cynthia Mckinney, and you should let her through."

You know how to stop this noise really fast?

Stick the woman who started the fight with the jet fuel bill, and additional jet engine time that was spent due to her actions. Why should Jet-Blue have to incur the extra costs of operating an aircraft?

It's amazing how seeing a person or two get hit with a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of bills; to put things in perspective.

But, that would mean that people would have to assume PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ... so this will never happen.

The fight began when one of the women, realizing she was mistakenly on a JetBlue flight, began to scream-

"I wanted to be on American, wanted to be on American!"

"The first rule of Mile High Fight Club is you do not talk about Mile High Fight Club. The second rule of Mile High Fight Club is you do not talk about Mile High Fight Club. Third rule of Mile High Fight Club, someone yells 'Stop!', goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule, only two passengers to a fight. Fifth rule, one fight at a time, folks. Sixth rule, no shirt, no shoes. Seventh rule, fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule, if this is your first flight on Mile High Fight Club, you have to fight."

LMBO! What's so funny, is that it is so believeable, from a family history point of view. Billy McKinney is widely reported to have once threatened another legislator with getting knifed, if not actually brandishing one, in the well of the Georgia House.

IMO, the fight was probably over Spanish. There's always some nut on the plane that feels everyone that wants to visit Puerto Rico or especially live there should be forced to speak Spanish.

IMHO, when the ingrates start paying all of our bills and sending us $17 BILLION dollars in cash, for every 4 million of us, each year, 10's of thousands of federal and private sector jobs, Food stamps, Welfare and $2.5 Billion dollar Urban Trains, then they can demand we speak Spanish in Puerto Rico.

You should hear some of the stories of what's happened to non-Spanish speakers that wind up in Puerto Rico's civil courts. It's the freaking 'Spanish Inquisition' all over again.

If an English speaking U.S. Taxpayer, that's had their tax dollars confiscated all their lives to support Puerto Rico while they lived stateside, moves to Puerto Rico and winds up in their civil courts for any reason, the fun starts at $75 an hour for a translator.

LOL!
