Good Lord -- smoking cigarettes!

Another story that screams for a taser-type weapon that shoots out a net.

The freak needs a beat-down and 10-year ban on flights.

I'm surprised no one kicked his ass.

According to that news story, at least one passenger was ready to. What a shame he didn't get a chance.

Looks like everyone (except the guy that obviously had an episode) handled it well, though. A minimum of fuss and muss all things considered.

People need to man-up & make a citizens arrest until authorities came. Smoking a cig near me on a flight would mean your hands get tied behind your back until police come. Don't be a spectator when you can do something right as a team.

What exactly are you criticizing here? This seems like the best possible outcome. They diverted the flight in order to get a quick police presence and nobody was hurt. Joe citizen attempting to restrain the guy would just escalate the situation.

Just because you making a citizens arrest doesn’t mean you have the right to physically restrain or hurt the person, you don’t. It doesn’t mean you get to act like a police officer.
