Why isn't the passenger who assulted him and was breaking the rules of the airline (which people often get thrown off flights and/or arrested for) and, more importantly, where was the air marshall? What if this psycho woman (or man) had been a terrorist? Hmmmm? Nice how they arrest the guy who was doing his job and got injured for trying to maintain safety for the other passengers when the psycho passenger had nothing happen to her! She should be brought up on federal charges and placed on the no-fly list!

You have got to be kidding me. With all the real criminals out there that have skated through the justice system, to waste time on this is just silly. Sure fire him if you want but criminal charges are a joke. Besides, there is no need to fire him, I think he quit! Sadly this guy will likely do more time than some sex offenders, multiple offense drunk drivers and violent criminals do. Our legal system is totally out of touch with priorities.

What are the charges being filed against the b!tch that ignored the warning not to get up until the plane had stopped or verbally abusing a flight attendant? Sounds to me like reckless endangerment and harassment.

OhMy    

Seriously!? Rikers Island? Uncalled for. And let me just say, what a waste of our tax dollars. He got fed up with some irritating piece of entitled trash and now he's facing 7 years.

Slap him on the rist, ban him from the Airline and be done with it. What a wast of time, I just can't stress that enough.

Also, I'd like to know what the instigating passenger is being charged with. Instigating threats on airline personnel. Harrassment maybe. She should not get out of this with just a great story to tell. She should be punished as well. She did hit him in the head after all.

Wow crazy...not at all defending what the guy did but we have celebrities like Mel Gibson who has many nasty recorded conversations and alledged altercations and this guy has a "bad" day and is going to get punished this severly...crazy! Don't get me wrong he absolutly treated a customer unruly but it wasn't like he hit her. The lady should have been questioned on hitting him! But to send him to rikers is a little harsh!

Too bad this didnt happen in California because he would be out in time for lunch and serve 2 days before he is released for a "overcrowded" jail.

What a joke that Lindsay Lohan can get 14 days or whatever it was for 2 DUIs, Coke possession, not following probation and court orders for required classes and this guy can possibly get 7 years for getting abused, smacked on the head while trying to do his job, then finally saying F this and sliding his way out of there.

As stupid as this is "STEWS" are trained to deal with all passanger crap. Not to worry JET BLUE will be facing law suites from upset passangers. Slater was wrong as well. You don't release emergency shoots because your pissed. These are federal charges.
