I remember watching the original Battlestar Galactica, the episode when

Of course they make his story less credible. You have passengers
saying he was rude, had blood shot eyes and was behaving oddly from
the time the flight began. You have a passenger that overheard his
interaction with the women who supposedly set him off saying that the
flight attendant started it and was the first to use vulgarity. You
have a Jet Blue memo that says they can't find evidence to support his
claim. You have another passenger who said the FA told him to put his
seat upright for landing. He told him it already was upright.
Whereupon, the FA reaches across, pushes the button and slams the back
of his seat as hard as he could. The seat didn't move because it was
already up. In short, with dozens of the passengers having been
interviewed, a lot of information has been obtained that makes his
story less credible. And so far, nothing has come out that confirms
his story. I've been on plenty of planes and can tell you when a
passenger is being obnoxious, the other passengers quickly become
aware of it and concerned by it. Yet, no one is saying the woman was
out of control, except apparently, this one FA.
Why you'd jump to the defense of a loon who could have killed ground
personnel by his reckless action is beyond me. And clearly saying
nothing learned from more witnesses does anything to make his story
less credible is wrong.
Yeah, OJ's actions were all explained away too. The FA's actions
will likely be explained too. He was probably intoxicated before the
flight began. If you're just flipped out and jump off a slide, tell
me this, why would you grab two beers to take with you? Answer:
Likely because you're already half drunk and want the party to
continue. His being under the influence of something seems to me a
lot more likely than his BS story.
I'd say the report given by the other passenger who overheard the
incident and said that the FA started it and was the first to use
vulgarity does directly implicate him. And many of the others add to
the case that he was behaving oddly.
Does anyone know what laws or regulations there are that control the flight
crew's leaving an airplane? For instance, a sailor cannot leave the ship
until permission is given by the captain. Is this also true for flight
You need to retake your on line law degree. There is no law saying
that a merchant sailor cannot leave a ship without the captains
permission. Involuntary servitude was outlawed by the Thirteenth
Amendment to the US constitution.
