good job he might have mental issues so don't prejudged coming from Alaska he probably was suffering a level of depression that had him in a bad way. I think if you follow this story you'll find out I am right on target on the assessment

Since it seems passenger restraint of unruly passengers is on the increase, perhaps the flight crew should keep some zip ties on hand. Even the cops use them as handcuffs. Very cheap and easy to store.

Running to get shoe laces and extensions doesn't make sense. I concur on zip ties. What if all extensions were in use?

I say the High School League needs to adopt new rules to shrink the disparity between the haves and the have-nots. The competitive imbalance is just too large.

Doesn't sound as if the flight attendants were exactly first responders in this. You get a couple big passengers laying on another passenger in the aisle of an airplane and you probably got some time.

They brought shoe laces to restrain him? How about putting a few cable ties on each plane. They work much better.

I'm surprised the article never mentioned the fact that it's physically impossible to open a door in flight. You can tug as much as you want, but the pressure in the cabin will prevent the door from opening.
