One thing is for certain here is that people apparently no longer know how to behave. According to the FBI and multiple reports, yet another person is facing some serious criminal charges after assaulting (and violently at that) a flight attendant this week. Police say that Khalil El Dahr assaulted an attendant; kicked him in the chest, and then proceeded to instruct the pilot to shoot him after the pilot’s door had been opened mid-flight.
The Daily Beast reports that the attendant was able to “corrall” him although it took at least two attempts; four seat belt extenders, and some help from passengers on the flight to do so. Apparently, he was upset that a call he tried to make mid-flight didn’t go through.
