Shots Fired on Flight That Landed at Miami Airport
Wednesday, December 07, 2005

MIAMI — A federal air marshal fired his weapon at an American Airlines passenger after claiming to have a bomb in his or her bag and running off of the plane, Homeland Security told FOX News.

The marshal pursued and tackled the suspect on the tarmac after the individual reached into his or her bag. American Airlines flight 924 was arriving in Miami-Dade International Airport on Wednesday when the incident occurred.

“The conditions [that would warrant an air marshal to fire his or her weapon] ought to be one where he has identified a threat to security” on the flight, Ron Goldman, aviation attorney and pilot, told FOX News.

“We don’t know if this was an accidental shooting,” he said.

Details surrounding the incident were not immediately clear, but footage showed medical personnel boarding American Airlines flight 924 with a stretcher and around 25 to 30 police vehicles on the scene.

Sources told FOX News the person may have been unbalanced.

Shoot first ask later.

I bet he was "unbalanced" once a hollow-tip tore through him.

Hollow point is what they are usually called, and they are usually designed not to go through you. Rather they break up inside of you and tear you to pieces on the inside. Fun, eh? laugh

Better than killing the innocent that may be behind the "bad guy."

I would have shot him if I was the marshall. Actually twice, once to protect everyone and the other for being a dumbass.

If I may... Hollow-points are designed to tear a BIG a** hole in your body on exit. Small entry hole BIG exit hole. Faster kill. The bullets that don't exit are Frangible bullets. Kind of like dirt clods... enough to kill a human being, but not enough force to tear a hole in the skin of the plane.

Now this is interesting

from www.avweb.com

An American Airlines pilot departing from Los Angeles International Airport told air traffic controllers that a missile had been fired at his aircraft and missed, a local ABC News affiliate reported last week. The pilot said he saw a smoke trail pass by the cockpit as the airplane climbed out over the ocean. FBI agents and Homeland Security officials investigated last weekend and said it was probably a flare or a [very impressive] bottle rocket, but they may never know for sure, according to KYW Newsradio 1060. The flight was en route to Chicago and proceeded without further incident.

The news here said that the dudes wife was beside him screaming that he was bi-polar and hadn't taken his medications.

Maybe next time he will take them, no wait, there wont be any next time.

I dealt with bi-polar people plenty at work, what a f*&*ing nuisance they are. You know they are bi-polar, and that they don't really want you any harm, they're just off their meds, but you just don't know when they'll take a knife or something to you.

He got what he had comming to him. Good to see due process step aside and let crime control win once in a while.
Yell bomb, run and reach into a bag while being chased. For all the Marshal knew his wife could have been in on it and trying to cover for him while he pulled a bomb or a gun out.

Not likely. Aviation is about the only place where the law gets to do just about whatever it wants... Especially if the word "bomb" is used. At that point, use of deadly force is fair game.
