Hero of Chicago to SFO Flight Speaks Out (tackled Yemeni who attacked cockpit door)

One of the men being hailed a hero for his actions during Sunday night's flight from Chicago to San Francisco where a passenger attempted to break through the cockpit door talked about his efforts on Tuesday.

Larry Wright, who is a retired police officer, said he did what he thinks anyone should do under the same circumstances. Wright sat down with reporters at SFO two days after the flight landed safely and the man was taken into police custody.

A man named Rageh al-Murisi is accused of walking to the front of the plane and attempting to get in the cockpit.

Wright said he was sitting in seat 20C when he noticed a fellow passenger walking past. "As I turned, there was a person walking past me. He rapidly broke into a trot... then yelled 'Allahu akbar.'" Wright said from his training as a police office he knew there was a problem and he immediately got up and followed the man. He said when he reached him, he was at the cockpit door. Wright said he put him in a control hold with the help of four or five other people.

"I started thinking about the possible scenarios that could be playing out here. There could’ve been a contaminant of sorts. There could’ve been an unexploded ordinance on the gentleman, so I asked if they had any more flexcuffs," Wright said.

Wright said he physically sat on top of al-Murisi for the remainder of the flight. By that time, al-Murisi had both his arms and his legs in plastic handcuffs and a belt and he was barefoot after Wright and another stripped him of his shoes and socks.

Wright said al-Murisi never spoke to him directly but said "Allahu akbar" some more 30 times during the duration of the flight.

The animals who follow and believe in this cult are an evil presence on this planet. They don’t belong here and should be removed!

Ditto. Nobody attacking a cockpit door, shouting death cult chants all the while, should ever be allowed to leave the aircraft alive.

another article contradicts this one.

It states that he said “God is Great!”.

“He rapidly broke into a trot... then yelled ‘Allahu akbar.’” Wright said from his training as a police office he knew there was a problem....”

*********************************************

Thank goodness his training allowed him to pick up on those subtle cues!

Seriously though - good on him! I guess one could figure they are going down anyway, but to engage in someone that you think might have a bomb strapped to them DOES take a certain mindset that I imagine he developed as a cop.

Just gotta snip out this

His cousins, who live in Vallejo, said outside court said al-Murisis was a normal guy and they don't think he had any intention of hurting anyone.

Liars lie. The truth is an alien concept to this demonic religion.

OOOOOH. Man, I would never have understood.

I was afraid the Amish were acting up again.

It was a misunderstanding.

He was yelling “Re-elect Baraq”

Once more a private citizen doing the job that TSA can’t do and isn’t interested in.

That is an insult to God. Allah is NOT god.

Judging by the look of the inside of OBL’s “McMansion”, it appears to me that finding the Potty is not necessarily a requirement to go Potty.

And his rheumatoid arthritis was acting up, too! All the more reason to try and storm the cockpit while yelling Allah hu ackbar!

All the other Muzzies on the flight were taking notes on the response he received and have reported it to the handlers of this dry run.

“Allah hu akbar” does not mean “God is great”. It means Allah, the Moon god (not the God of the Jews or Christians), is superior and supreme over all other gods including the Jews’ and Christians’.
