Just saw the news, and a man was shot by US Air Marshalls after he disembarked from American Airlines flight 924 from Medellin, Colombia at Miami Int'l and boarded a plane bound for Orlando, FL. The man shouted that he had a bomb before boarding the plan. He then ran and reached at his backpack. The Air Marshalls didn't take any chances and shot him. This is the first shooting of involving US Air Marshalls since 9/11. The female companion told authorities that he had bipolar disorder and had not taken his medication. My opinion: This could have been avoided if: 1. The victim took his medication or the companion was diligent enough to see if the he took his medication; 2. He should have declared at check-in that he had a disorder so they would have been placed in an area of the plane where the victim could relax, would not get agitated or stressed, or an airline nurse would have accompanied them on the flight. The airline would have notified in advance US Marshalls and airport security that they had a passenger on board with a mental disorder. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
