Well, that sort of behavior is definately not normal. So either there is a serious problem with his wiring, or there are some foul drugs involved... which cause serious problems with mental wiring.

OK with me if they put him down like a mad dog. He's not suitable to be running around loose in society and he Is gIving stong indiction that he has potential to be really dangerous.

Please, no. As a frequent bus rider I do not want to have to deal with this kind of behavior. He needs to stay home.

I've only maybe seen this from special education kids I work at and I can tell you, most have emotional disorders.
I used to work in the Emergency Department (A&E) in a UK hospital, and once a drunk man, dressed in a smart suit, was brought in by ambulance. He was vomiting in the side cubicle (his vomit reeked of red wine) and then he began spitting at the nursing staff. When his wife showed up, she was very embarrassed and said "He's not usually like this," which only showed how little she probably knew about him. These were well-dressed people, not special education. He was simply a drunk.


Why is alcohol available on flights anyway?

Self-inflicted mental disorders elicit no sympathy from me.

I saw the footage. I assumed he had already had enough to be intoxicated. His conduct was reprehensible.

But calling fellow humans animals just signals a lack of emotional control on the part of the person doing the name callling. Once you label a person, you are free to be contmptuous and give him or her no more thought.

Instead of calling someone an animal, I think it is better to call out the behavior, especially if we only have access to one bad incident.

An animal is an animal, period.
