The Kill Game...

Killing your own citizens by assuming them as terrorists, attacking sovereignity of other nations with wrong intelligence on WMDs, under the cover of dealing with terrorism; It's getting uglier for the people ruling this country...

"Rigoberto Alpizar, a 44-year-old US citizen, was killed in the air bridge after running out of the plane pursued by marshals who had broken their cover.

No bomb was found on Mr Alpizar whose wife had tried to explain he had a mental illness, one witness said.

Mary Gardner, a fellow passenger, told local television that the man had run frantically down the aisle of the Boeing 757 screaming while his wife tried to explain he was ill.


"I did hear the lady say her husband was bi-polar and had not had his medication," she said. "I saw the woman... she was hysterical."

Mr Alpizar had arrived in Miami, Florida, from Ecuador and was boarding a flight to Orlando at about 1410 local time (1910 GMT).

Local police and federal officers are investigating the incident, but officials say so far there is no hint of any links to terrorism. However, as a precaution, federal air marshals were deployed in airports across the country.

Television images showed police and emergency response officers surrounding the plane after the incident."

I can't, simply. He doesn't know me well; plus, it's not appropriate to poke your head in somebody's personal affair..
Where are you, btw?

this post is hard to refute, because yes a guy got wrongfully shot, HOWEVER, if i was on that airplane, and some crazy guy got up and ran for the front of the plane shouting that he had a bomb, and trying to reach into his bag... after the tragedy of terrerism on 9/11, its totally understandable, and i think proper, that the threat was eliminated. if she was so worried about her crazy husband she should have made sure he took his medication.

the safety, and preceived safety of my family, loved ones, friends and neighbors, and even blogging buddies like you is of foremost importance.

You dont yell fire in a crowded theatre, and you dont yell I GOT A BOMB on a crowded airplane.

i do agree with all of the comments though. it's true that safety and precaution are paramount concerns, specially in public areas and transportations.

Since 911 everyone is being so careful.. this is sad but I am not sure it could be prevented.

My opinion is that they could have used some non-fatal downing weapon to avoid death...
