    People who are mentally ill who go out in public need to be carried around like hannibal lecter, just so that people know whats up with them.

    Yeah, but doesn't banning and condemning people give you a similar rush?

    So was the guy actually mentally ill?

    If so, that's pretty tragic.

    Somehow, I thought even federal marshals werent allowed to carry guns on planes anymore.

    how is a person who has only a few seconds to react suppose to know whhether someones joking, serious, or just mentally ill? the longer they wait, the more serious things can get
    in hindsight, all actions can have been avoided and seen as tragic, but how would u feel if you just had a second to decide whether someone really did have a bomb or may have been reaching for a weapon. You never know

    hindsight's 20/20. people will always find a reason to complain. but fuck it, you say you've got a bomb then you're gunna get shot, joke or not

    exactly, you only have seconds to react and during that short time you hold the life of at least one person in your hands and potentially hundreds of others. The last thing you want to do is make a brash, uninformed decision. I, for one, am an advocate of non-lethal weapons being used in situations like this. Those that incapacitate rather than kill. Be a lot less messy, we all could sleep better at night and one less Widow would be mourning her dead Husband.

    also, wouldn't we want the suspect or suspects alive? So we could infiltrate and break up their terrorist cell or whatever?
