    Sometimes, I really wish we were back in the old archaic days and we could dole out the appropriate punishment.

    After the crew was done wrestling the dumbass to the ground, the pilot should have descended to about 12,000 feet and had the crew shove him out over the ocean...

    This one's raising alot of flags

    How did a no-fly guy get on a plane?
    How the hell did his explosives follow him?
    The type of terrorism we're facing is going to try and score points during a Christian festival, what happened to airport security?

    seems fitting take him out and have fire ants crawl down his pants.

    Somehow America needs to make a stance and say NO MORE B.S. from anyone. public execution ?

    And that's the reason I pray everytime I see a foreign person on any flight I am on.... stereotypical? Maybe.

    We need to quit worrying about offending the guys who are trying to kill our citizens (and the citizens of our allies), and start making examples. "Try something and we'll beat you to death with your own leg while you lie twitching in a fresh pile of pig crap" has a much more serious ring than "try something and we'll appologize profusely while a raving band of lawyers beat upon your jail-cell door with schemes to get you free, sue the poor bastard who had the effrontery to actually keep you from killing fellow Americans (replace with country of choice), and score you a spot on some daytime talk show where you can moan about how benevolent your god is and how he wants you to kill everyone in the name of his mercy."

    I mean, c'mon!

    Yep... But you know the worst part ? Is that it will likely never happen as there will always be some dumbasses to grab the constitution and brag about the freedom of religion.

    Just more lawyer crap...

    The problem most of these fools have, is that in a Democracy, the majority rules...not the individual. And when these people jump out there ranting and raving about how they want thier rights and freedoms, they forget that in doing so, they are walking all over other people's rights...

    And that really pisses me off...

    And congrats to the passengers who took that idiot down...I think alot of people learned a lesson from 9/11 and it'll make it alot harder for these idiots to pull thier stupid sh!t onboard flights in the future.

    Dutch hero
    Dutchman Jasper Schuringa, who was travelling on the plane, played a hero’s role in preventing the attack. Minutes before landing the 32-year-old entrepreneur from Amsterdam saw the Nigerian man stand up suddenly and set light to something. Without hesitating, he dived on Mr Mutallab and held him so he couldn’t move until after the plane had landed. In doing so he burned both his hands, ripped his clothing and lost his shoes.

    That man should not have to pay for a stitch of new replacement clothing, nor any liquid refreshment for some time to come. :occasion5:

    Nicely done.

    Apparently the "idiot" suffered 2nd degree burns to his crotch. NICE!! Only a pity it was not 3rd degree burns.

    And I suppose he's going to Chicago and not Gitmo. Another foreign national with my fellow US citizen rights. Disgusting.
