  1. Clearly somehow some kind of subliminal terrorism being broadcasted thru internet screens ik sounds like paranoia but these shootings and acts of dumbness have been like never before.

  2. So many self righteous comments. What has this world come to? Show some compassion- who are you to judge this guy? Do you have any clue what he's going through? These judgemental comments are more disturbing than the act of what this guy did. You people these days are so blindly obedient and callused without a thought to empathy for anyone. I hope the guy gets the help he needs instead of charges thrown at him. Charges ñj probably going to help – Not.

  3. I really don't know what it is – COVID, politics, social media, etc. But there really is something going on with people. People are getting crazier and self-centered. Driving on the roads has gotten scarier. People are acting as if nothing matters anymore, that there are no consequences.

  4. That one guy nailed it when he said that "behaviors are deteriorating." People just don't know how to act any more. Many are either completely insane or just plain RUDE.

  5. Plane: I’m going to move now… I’m moving…
    Pass anger: BS, you r-knot going any where any time soon. See he’s still here… you can see out this door not window plain and simple. Pole ice will be mad. They still r-knot angry.
    GOD: oh God what have I done.

  6. I understand that this delayed the flight and made lots of people uneasy. But did he break any laws? Is it actually illegal to exit an aircraft? I'm not defending him, just curious.

  7. Just be thankful the passenger wasn't Donald Trump, he would have waited until the plane was at 35,000 feet before he wanted "Fresh Air"!🤯
    mea sententia sine firmis 🦂

  8. DE-PLANED IS NOT A WORD!!! STOP IT!!! You board the aircraft/plane… You don't "plane the plane".
    Hey Bob, I'm about to plane my flight then might have to deplane… 🤬
