WNBC in NY got the exit shot of the JetBlue flight attendant. Slater didn't answer any questions and then sprinted away with a friend.

Far as we know, Steven did not grab a couple of beers on his way out of the jail.

Put the B8tch who started this whole mess by not following airline rules in prison. Give her a year to practice sitting in a chair until the rules allow her to get up and leave

Okay, so we know what going 'postal' is about. Now we need to create a term for maniacs on planes. Any takers?

Seeing those reproters surrounding him, and then chasing him, was very scary! And this was outside a police station? This country is loosing it. Too much stress for everyone.

umm ok    

People need to STOP treating this guy like a hero. He works in the service industry, it's his job to deal with people like this.

Please do not encourage his incredibly immature and illegal behavior.

You were railroaded, it's that simple.

I am sure the blow to your head caused you to act in the manner you did. Not your fault!
Where is the passenger that started all this trouble?
Walking around free as can be I'll bet. What if this had been a terrorist, someone that managed to bring something on the plane to cause harm to others, he's be a hero not looking at doing jail time for doing his damn job.
JET BLUE do right by this man, his supporters are growing in numbers!

Slater, I hope this was worth it. As a STEW you are trained to handle all passangers crap. Bottom line you were the professional and passangers are idiots. YOU COULD HAVE HAD THE PASSANGER REMOVED. You could not be certin that ramp was not in the way of the shute. Like you are the only one who wants to throw a passanger off a plane.

You put people in possible danger. The utmost is safty first and your melodramatic antics put safty last. All these people cheering you ARE NOT FACING FELONY CHARGES AND 7 YEARS IN JAIL.

I think Jet Blue will hang him out to dry to make an example if nothing else. They will not tolerate this from any employee.

I wonder if Jet Blue will make him pay the money it cost for his flamboyant exit.

I hope the woman who interfered with a flight crew is charged. One idiot like her could get another passenger really hurt. They tell you to remain seated not only your safety but those around you. If they don't charge her all the idiots out there will be standing up and opening the bins before the planes stop. I hope she is charged with assault also and he sues her! Get a good lawyer dude and don't forget your workers comp case! I travel a lot and the rudeness of so many people is unbelievable and needs to stop.
