Unruly passenger blocked from
cockpit, taped to seat as fighter
jets escort American flight

Chicago Tribune, by Jennifer Sinco Kelleher*

Posted By:Lalo, 5/19/2017 11:36:04 PM

Two U.S. fighter jets were summoned Friday to escort a flight from Los Angeles to Hawaii after an unruly man was subdued by passengers and flight attendants, who used a drink cart to block him from the front of the plane. The man, identified by law enforcement officials as Anil Uskanil, 25, of Turkey, was duct-taped to his seat until the plane landed in Honolulu and federal agents boarded the plane and arrested him, passenger Lee Lorenzen said. "The flight attendants just were really heroic," Lorenzen said. "By the time we landed and the FBI took him into custody,

Would have been good to let him out the back door, sans parachute.

Maybe airlines should be able to sue the crap out of disruptive passengers - over and above the law enforcement part.

Just wondering what help the fighter jets are in this situation. Are they there to shoot down the airliner if it´s headed for a skyscraper? Or are they just there to dissuade a terrorist from trying to take over controls of the airplane?

The thug was caught in an unauthorized section of the airport, then was allowed to board the flight to Hawaii? Why? To get him out of the CA jurisdiction? What´s wrong with law enforcement? Oh, that´s right. This is Jerry Brown´s let every criminal run free edict.

The FBI shoulda just unbolted the seat and carried him, seat and all, off the plane, thru the airport an to the closest jail cell and left him there for a few days like that to ripen up. He´d be real docile (and smelly) when cut out of it!

When we were racing cars, it was called Super Tape. With good reason. At times we could not have gotten along without it.

Will this use make that list of 1000 things you can do with duct tape?

Airline personnel are already judge and jury. Why not finish the trifecta and give them some plastic cuffs for "emergencies". I sounds like he should never have been permitted on the plane. Are there some new rules especially for "middle easterners"?

I hope that, by now, everyone (at least here) understands that once the aircraft is in the air and pressurized, it is entirely impossible for anyone to open a door.
In fact, if it keeps them occupied, letting them play with the handle is perfectly safe.

The door has to move inward, and the force required is many thousands of pounds due to the pressure differential. Nobody will ever open the door while the pressurization is on, which is essentially all the time the aircraft is in the air, unless the pilot´s intentionally depressurize it from the cockpit. It is a bit like worrying that someone will pick up your car and carry it off. Not going to happen.

After 9/11/01, any passenger who gets out of line after the plane is in the air deserves whatever he gets. This clown possibly put 181 other passengers in danger. The fighters do indeed have the option of shooting the plane down if the passenger gains access to the cockpit and overpowers the flight crew. If the Air Force had been in position to save 3000 people in the WTC by shooting down the two planes, they would have. The fact that we could not imagine anybody committing that horrible atrocity allowed it to happen. Not any more.

I´m guessing this was a United airlines flight because they KNOW how to handle an unruly passenger.

Down the Breitbart Hole

The editor in chief of Breitbart News is a 31-year-old craft beer enthusiast from Los Angeles named Alexander Marlow. Probably starting about here, the official style guide of The New York Times Magazine would have me refer to him as ‘‘Marlow,’’ but this is a story about storytelling — about the stories we choose to tell and the way we tell them; the fictions that we entertain when we claim to write nonfiction — so I’m going to blow past the usual journalistic claptrap and just refer to our subject as Alex, because that’s what everybody who knows him calls

A tree that grows in Brooklyn no longer bears a plaque honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The 105-year-old marker went south Wednesday, removed from a maple tree planted by Lee in the 1840s — years before his decision to lead the secessionist fight in the Civil War. “For us, it wasn’t a decision that needed more than a minute of thought,” said Bishop Lawrence Provenzano of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. “I think it was the right thing to do, because (the plaque) just being there was offensive to the African-American community.” The tree, planted by Lee

President Trump’s lawyer forwarded an email Wednesday to conservative media outlets and government officials praising Confederate leader Robert E. Lee and comparing him to George Washington, according to a report. John Dowd, who heads the President’s legal team, forwarded an email, with the subject “The Information that Validates President Trump on Charlottesville,” which outlined similarities between the two generals, the New York Times reported. “Both owned slaves. Both rebelled against the ruling government. Both men’s battle tactics are still taught at West Point,” the email reads. “Both saved America. Both were great men, great Americans, and great commanders.” Dowd forwarded the email obtained

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon may not have agreed to do an interview with American Prospect, a left leaning publication, despite the fact the outlet published a piece Wednesday where he was quoted saying, among other things, "the economic war with China is everything." Bannon reportedly called the journalist, Robert Kuttner, after reading one of his columns about how China was profiting from the U.S.-North Korea nuclear brinkmanship. But, according to Axios, Bannon was unaware the conversation about the piece would be turned into an interview. Bannon reportedly called the journalist, Robert Kuttner, after reading one of his

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon opened up in a rare interview published Wednesday by a left-leaning magazine, dismissing some of his enemies in Washington while calling the far-right elements of the Republican party “a collection of clowns.” Bannon, the former executive chair of Breitbart, called a reporter with the magazine The American Prospect. “Ethno-nationalism – it’s losers. It’s a fringe element,” Bannon said. “I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more.” He added, “These guys are a collection of clowns.” In the wide-ranging

Ted Nugent was one of the guest specialists on Fox News Specialists this afternoon, and he rather strongly defended President Trump‘s statement condemning “all violence”: “I’m going to go ahead and say the most controversial thing in the world, and if you find fault with this, you’re brain-dead. All lives matter and we condemn all violence. Those are bad words? Why are those bad words? What planet are you from? We condemn all violence. That’s what President Trump said. And all lives matter.

Jennifer Lawrence is apparently trying to take her role in the Hunger Games movies, as a one-woman resistance fighting a totalitarian government, and translate it to the real world. The star took to Facebook on Monday to urge her fans to engage in a real life witch hunt: imploring them to root out Nazis and white supremacists hiding among their friends and neighbors, and post their faces and names on the internet so that they can be publicly shamed. “These are the faces of hate. Look closely and post anyone you find,” Lawrence screeched on social media. “You can´t

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —

One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

"Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like
