Unreported News: Airline Door Openers
Now before you get all alarmist, the man had a California ID card. That means he's just a deranged person with girlfriend issues.
Excerpt: The Yemeni man who was wrestled to the floor after pounding on the cockpit door of a plane approaching San Francisco may have mistaken it for the bathroom. Rageit Almurisi cannot speak English very well and could have misunderstood the signs inside the jet, his cousin claimed. The math teacher, who was heard yelling 'Allahu Akbar' as he allegedly battered the door, had also only been on three planes in his life and would have been unfamiliar with the layout.
Maybe he was saying "Admiral Akbar? Where's the can?"
Excerpt: If this is a new trend, it's one that a very jittery America could do without. Yet another air passenger has had to be tackled by other passengers after trying to open the plane's door mid-flight. It is the fourth scare in less than a week for American air passengers. Travel authorities say a Delta passenger tried to open an emergency door on a flight from Orlando, Florida, to Boston on Tuesday night, but was subdued by another passenger.
Luckily, other passengers are our true line of defense. The TSA apparently cannot.
If you're flying this week, and there's a jackass out of his seat, get ready to tackle him.
