Regardless of what they tell you and no matter where you are, Your not really safe
How many red flags do they need ?
Witnesses said the gunman was involved in an altercation during the flight, but the incident was not serious enough for him to be stopped when the plane landed.
To sum up, an obviously disturbed man, recently released (or self-released) from psychiatric treatment, who was known to the FBI, an ex-Iraq US military guy with a history of domestic violence, gets on a plane with a gun as his only checked luggage, creates a disturbance on the flight, and then ... surprise, he's a psycho-killer.
Didn't ring any bells or raise any flags ? What do they need, a freaking foghorn ?
Common sense ?
I am sure if his name had been Mohamed, he would not even have boarded the plane.
