If the passenger had been Arab, Fox News would be blaming President Obama. Well okay, they probably will anyway.

this didn't really happen. it's a cover up for some conspiracy theory that no one made up yet.

According to the NY Post, "once on the tarmac, Slater boarded the AirTrain to pick up his silver Jeep Wrangler and raced home to Belle Harbor, where he hopped into bed with his boyfriend, a source said."

Give him a fine to pay and let the man go. he was the only one hurt in the incident. it actually is quite hilarious. lmao! beer sex and a blow up thing. lol we've all had long arduous days. he realizes he has lost his job and has his mother to worry about.

Free Slater!

Who cares if he's gay, purple or whatever. He was trying to do his job and this bimbo went against the rules and regulations set forth by the airlines. Put her in jail for assault with intend to harm or whatever they call it.

He was charged with reckless endangerment? What about the bimbo that got out of her seat when you are not suppose to, opened the overhead bin, etc. Let's get her for reckless endangerment. What is happening to justice?

He is a HERO...I am not an F/A but I have been on plenty of flights where passengers are rude and unruly. I have no idea how these professionals keep their cool when confronted with the uneducated, knuckle-draggers they have to put up with everyday. I remember a time when flying was special but now it's like riding a trailways or grayhound bus. I think that f/a should have the right to revoke tickets and put people off the plane, then maybe we wouldn't have unfriendlies flying the friendly skies with us.

Why aren't charges being brought against the passenger? It seems to me that that's the person that should be sitting in jail! Since when has bad behavior in public become so acceptable! It sounds like Steven is being punished for doing his job and trying to keep not only this passenger but other passengers safe! NOBODY wants luggage whacking them in the head just because a passenger can't wait a few minutes!

he's a hero?
are you daft?

spewing obscenities over the intercom
releasing the emergency chute
stealing alcohol from his employer
exiting before the passengers

wow...
I bet the other passengers on the flight wouldn't feel that way

what he is.... he's a drama queen (in more then 1 sense of the word)

Here is my only issue. The other day a lady get's kicked off a flight for quietly asking a F/A if the pilot had been drinking (because she could smell something on him) but this guy jumps ship in this day in age and everyone shouts horray?

Granted this guy was delt dirty by the passenger but come on!

With that being said I think F/A are treated pretty poorly.
