Does it apply to his own plane?

Oddly yes. You can't assault flight crew or ignore their instructions, even on your own plane.

I would have been happy enough if they were immediately put on a blacklist for all plane/train trips, but prison works as well.

LOL that sad little white man wants to sic the FBI on everyone he can. He must have gotten bullied a lot in school.

Drop to 5k feet and push them out. Problem solved for all future flights. And no more suicide by cop.

Here's a story that has nothing to do with a piece of shiat, failed businessman.  Let me see if I can come up with some stupid way to make it about him...

Agreed, but I don't recall any of our glorious GQP members acting out on an actual flight.

Almost as if they're spineless actors.

Y'know, just mandating vaccines before you can get on a plane would probably solve two problems.

Even still, I'll believe it when I see it.

Also, said failed businessman very notoriously flies via private plane, so it's not even plausible.

My Train trip from the bay area to Reno was delayed 40 minutes going there due to " Police Action " in Sacramento station .. Return trip train was 1 hr. late coming into Reno due to " Police Action " .. One hundred  yards outside of Emeryville station the train stopped , wouldn't let anyone off for 45 minutes due to " Police Action .. fark those assholes ..

They should also be charged for the jet fuel and any additional charges if they have to divert the flight.  And all the other passengers can sue them for the time lost.  Double if they were flying in business class.  Those guys are always working.
 
2021-11-27 9:33:15 PM  
To be fair, if only there were signage around every single airport about wearing masks at all times. Or when you buy your ticket a notice appears to inform the buyer that masks are required.
 
2021-11-27 9:33:38 PM  
I'm sure the DOJ has a bazillion of things on their plate but they sure seem to focus on the small fries because it's easier. Not saying the unruly passengers don't deserve it but c'mon. Go for the big fish flaunting the law Merrick...or are you afraid. All the evidence you need is in front of you

screw that, we'll take that money out of their estate or insurance policies, while they can discover the feeling of a terminal velocity impact into whatever the aircraft is flying over once they've been dealt with.

So, they have a billion things to do, are currently doing them, and are saying this particular thing is also on their plate, and you have a problem with this?

The concept of "What DOJ actually does" is a new one to you, huh?
 
2021-11-27 9:38:02 PM  
Good. Like we should be doing with all people who can't abide by societal norms, a few years in the clink will be a good for everyone else.

We can fill all those private prisons with airline scofflaws, people who can't wear masks when required, people who refused to get vaccinated, people who shirk paying their rent, and people who think theft is a viable solution to ... well ... anything.

Better Garland did this in a memo vs a press conference as his public appearances are as "get off my lawn" as Biden's. Can we get fewer pathetic old white guys from the Left please?

Nah, just my own thoughts on prioritization. I'll get over it. I will be farking shocked if Garland prosecutes a single meaningful case on the Dump admin and it's rather infuriating

Absolutely, though what we need are more politicians that are tough on real crimes, like trying to overthrow a democratically elected president or pretending that one's desire to do whatever the hell one wants is more important then the good of the overall society, rather than bullshiat made up crimes like running while black.  The sooner we grind conservatives into hog feed, I say, the better off we'll be.

Around here "police action" delays on the passenger trains are usually due to cleaning up someone who jumped in front of a train.  They change the terminology every few years because whatever term they do use ends up with an increase in copycat problems. Passenger train drivers are hard enough to find.  About 1/3 have had someone jump in front of their train and it a major reason drivers do quit.

Wait a second, comrade.  Why do you think people that enter into an agreement with a property owner and then refuse to honor that agreement should be thrown in jail?  Not honoring a contract sounds like something a dead beat like donald J trump would do.  You don't think he should walk free after committing a crime like that, do you?

Good. Plague rats shouldn't even be allowed on planes. Or buses. Or trains. Or in public spaces. Or be permitted jobs, or housing or banking and financial services. Pelt them with rotten vegetables and shout UNCLEAN at them, because that's what they are. Filthy.

I dunno.  I'm starting to enjoy anti-vax and anti-maskers in public.

Me: "Please either put on a mask or sop breathing down my neck."

Him: "You wanna fight about it?  DO YOU?!"

Me: "Yes!  Thank you SO much!  It's been almost a year since I got to beat someone to a pulp!  I appreciate this more than you possibly.....wait...where are you going?!  I accepted...don't leave!"
