When will the passenger be charged?

She committed felonious assault by slamming the overhead door on Slater's head and a federal crime by not adhering to a flight attendant's instructions.

It is outrageous that no charges have been filed yet.

Why are they wasting their $$ in this way??? If they really want to get some good publicity, they'll arrest the pax that disobeyed their FA's instructions! I'm sick of people who think they can really get a LOT further ahead of the rest of us if they get up before the FA say it's safe to. They'd be the first ones to get lawyers if they were hurt getting up early and the plane had a problem.

And to Michael Q: What does the President have to do with this story? I love how all you right wing nut jobs try to tie him to every potentially negative story because you have nothing else. Give us all a break and get over it, he's our Commander in Chief and will be for at least the next 2 years, hopfully the next 6!

Hey Q! If we were as tough on real criminals like sex offenders and murderers, etc. as you want to be with this guy the world would be a better place. There is no way he belongs in jail at all, let alone take up a jail cell that could be used to house someone dangerous. You seem to be in a major uproar over this guys story. Why? Are you a homophobe? I wonder. And there's not much there for a reality TV show, not one that anyone would care to watch. Had someone captured the actual incident on video that would be "must see TV". Q just needs to lighten up!

Is there anything more pathetic than people coming on here and trying to shoe horn their political rants into some form of meaningful commentary related to this story? I can't think of anything off the top. I guess they don't have many other options since everyone they know is likely overly tired of their ridiculous rhetoric.

It simply seems a little incongruous to be getting all animated over this guy blowing his cork on an airplane while the Constitution is being dismantled by this slug who is in office for one reason. He's black. No, trust me, millions of people in this country will never get over that bastard until he's removed from office and the rule of law is restored. This story about the flight attendant is such an inconsequential pant load there aren 't words. Being a flight attendant is not much more than being a glorified waitress any more. The pay stinks, the conditions are terrible and the benefits are about the same as my old paper route. Give Slater a medal and impeach that s***bag in the Oval Office who is doing some REAL damage.

When the company/ agency shrinks do to inadequate funding the bosses and the clients get shabby because the services wages and shrink. Bosses are rewarded for operating in ethical gray areas.
An employee or coworkers can accidently step in "dog poop" and get "scapegoated" written up for not taking baths or poor personal hygiene,computers can be hacked into by bosses or other employees. employees can be falsely accused of inappropriate behaviors. An employee might be asked when they are doing to retire. Employee responds with a "smile" on his face. I will retire as soon as I get treated like the CEO or the agency head with all the perks and packages. Employee gets written up as saying that they are to smart for the boss to force them into retirement. Fact distortions destroy morale and can cause outbursts. It is better to sit back and watch the bosses violate the very ethics that they preach "Milgram Effect", "Lucifer Effect" and then retire or move on.

It is better to read Stanley Milgram and Philip Zimbardo's
research set back, smile "not loose your temper" and watch it play out on Life’s Shakespearean stage. Ethics get distorted
in all hierarchies just like organized religion. Human nature
a therapist or lawyer that can't tell you how to use to your advantage possibly get wealth and power is guilty of malpractice.

It is hard to not loose one's "cool" "temper" when hierarchies distort realities to this extreme. If you are at the top of the hierarchy and you keep your "cool" you are smart but if you are on the bottom hierarchy you are "cool" you are too dumb to realize that you are being abused. A boss bragged about this when they thought I wasn't listening.

huh    

Some guy wrecks a plane, steals beer and takes off in a hissy fit is a hero. I've seen flight attendants like him. They think they have a little bit of power so they are condescending to passengers with some plastered on smile. Yeah just because you're being an a** with a smile on your face doesn't make you any less of an a**.

Here's a hint moron, if you don't like your job quit like a man. Cursing on a PA with a flight full of passengers is not heroic it's disgusting. Now we have to see this douchebag non stop until his trial is over. Do us all a favor Jetblue, sue this idiot and slap a gag order on him. If he even so much as shows his face on tv for the next 2 years send his straight to the slammer and bankrupt him.
