    Children should be in the cargo hold.

    This is probably completely true.

    Coward maybe, being drunk does not make you a "drunk", if so probably 95% of the male population would be classified as a "drunk".

    why is it no surprise that you are defending a man that in front of dozens of witnesses slapped a child?

    Even if some lawyer somehow gets him off in court, he has no chance of winning in civil court. Even you should be able to figure that out.
    The company did the right thing in this day and age. It is really hilarious watching you do the 2 step trying to defend him.

    You are either obtuse or really dumb. I hope for your sake, it is the former.

    I am not defending him other than pointing out being drunk does not make you "a drunk". Come on marine, even in your black/white world there must be a shade of gray.

    You have no idea if he could win in a civil court or not. For all you know, the boy's mother is full of it and just trying to get face time on TV. Last time I checked, you weren't there any more than I was.

    Grouchy old coot. He needs to ride in the cargo area. (or take a road trip next time).

    This post in not serious

    In Anger Management, Adam Sandler was duped into Air Rage - a setup.

    Then he was sentenced to do therapy simply to generate business for the psychologist (Jack Nicholson) ... tried to keep this sentence indefinite.

    I don't think anything like this happened in this instance, although the treatment Jack Nicholson gave would be punishment enough. :D

    Guy deserves it. You never slap a baby in that situation. You're supposed to shake it.

    Wow, just, wow. The guy would not have made it off that plane in one piece if that was my child. If not me, my wife would have put a serious hurt on that man. Even if it wasn't my child, I don't think I would have had the self-control to sit there and witness what he did without doing something about it. I wonder how passengers who witnessed his act reacted.

    As for him getting fired, if he is "at will employee", like I am, the company doesn't really need much of a reason to let him go.

    Yea, I really went out on a limb there, and thought that a guy that drank to the point of harassing a woman who was by herself with a baby, and then striking that baby, .. only had a drink or two. This guy is a drunk, and he is good at it from all of his experience.

    We have all seen them, .. drunk again in public. They are the ones that think we don't know. They think they can act like they are not drunk so we won't know. They only fool themselves.

    I don't know what kind of world you live in but 95% of the men I know do not get drunk in public. I don't know what they do in private, but they do not get drunk when out in public.

    So I'll stand by what I called him, a drunk and a coward.

    Idaho is an at will employment state. If they want to fire him because they think he picked his nose, they can.

    Unless he has some type of contract deal (unlikely) and that contract protects against that (very unlikely), then he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    Best case scenario for him is he was employed under a contract and he can negotiate a cash settlement. Again, very unlikely.

    Seriously, I don't understand the defense on this thread for this man.

    When you work for someone, it's understood a level of conduct and performance is required for compensation.

    It's unusual, but becoming a spectacle has it's consequences.

    Well, the "fasten safety belt" sign was still on, so there was little the other passengers could do. :)

    Why thank you, .. rather proud of that.

    It sets a good example for our sons, and our women seem to like it better that way too.
