This story about the passenger getting shot today just doesn’t add up. You have a guy who they say claimed he had a bomb but his wife was shouting he was just off his meds. I don’t believe that even if he was shouting he had a bomb that anyone with any common sense, let alone training would believe it. He wasn’t even on the plane when he was shot so I’m just not buying this story.
One thing that you will see in 100% of shootings by police is that any time someone is shot they always claim that the killed person did something aggressive that justified the shooting. In this case to justify the shooting there has to be a claim there was a bomb and that there was reason to believe that he was going to detonate it. It is a given that no matter what really happened that the story would have been the same.
So as I’m watching them blow up luggage on the tarmac when clearly they already knew at that point that they totally fucked up, what I see is at least theatrics and at worse the destruction of evidence.
My opinion is that what is most likely the case is that this guy mouthed off and they decided to teach him a lesson because they knew they could get away with it.
Let’s see if they find any passengers who actually heard the bomb threat other than the cops. It wouldn’t surprise me if they made that up.
I don’t trust police and I know how they lie. Having been kidnapped 3 times by the police I don’t have a very high opinion of their honesty. I don’t want to sound like I don’t appreciate them because most cops are good public servants. But when cops do bad things they all come together and cover up for the bad cop every time. And in this case the facts just don’t add up to something I think is believable. I don’t believe that when a guy is off the plane and just acting a little nuts that he was a serious danger of being a terrorist. I would guarantee that a real terrorist would not behave that way. A real terrorist would be as cool and normal looking as you can get.
