    "My kid is retarded so everyone has to put up with her squealing for 4 hours". Typical american attitude of entitlement.

    But there are laws to protect the disabled, as opposed to those who are being assholes on a plane just for the sake of being assholes. That is probably what the parent is invoking here

    They probably shouldn't be protected to the point that they are allowed to annoy 120 people on a plane.

    She wasn't removed because she had autism. She was removed because she and her mother were being disruptive to other passengers. It's not the airlines responsibility to cater to all of the mental and physical defects of their passengers.

    The mom was pestering the staff to get the kid a warm meal so she would calm down. They were busy doing other things. The child got more obnoxious. There is no reason people need to be trapped in a metal tube with a rampaging kid.

    Unfortunately, there is no real "right" answer as what to do. Personally, I agree with both sides.

    On one hand, I have an unbelievable amount of empathy for those who have, and those who deal with (for lack of better term), autism. Accommodations should be made that they can carry on as normal of a life as possible. The odds are already stacked against them, so people really need to be patient and understanding. If that means alternative, or special, treatment, then so be it.

    That being said, there are other safety issues that need to be considered. This is a 15 year old girl, not a crying baby. The potentiality for her escalation to become physical, is very real. The mother has to be understanding of the fact that, should the escalation continues, that things could get exponentially worse than a missed flight.

    Im not judging the mom, but in the future, she needs to make sure that she makes every attempt to have as many of the girls coping tools as possible (Maybe she did, I wasnt there). This includes extra food, if hunger leads to her becoming agitated. Hell, she may have to spring for an extra carryon, just for shit that the daughter uses in these times. Im not saying that will work either, but it gives the daughter a fighting chance.

    Im certainly not blaming the kid. Tigger is right; she likely doesn't know better, and likely can't control it.
    Im not blaming the mom. She does what she can.
    Im not blaming the airline. If they were afraid the disruption would become physical, or to the point where safety was the issue, they had to make the decision that mitigated the most risk.

    Just a shitty situation :(

    Two words.

    Tranquilizer gun.

    If you have a kid that may be a disruption, crying babies included...BOOM tranquilizer gun!!!

    You gotta sign a waiver before the flight. This fucker gets outta hand, we have the right to dose em.
