    A passenger is facing charges for allegedly threatening to “blow up” a Panama-bound plane that was escorted back to Toronto’s Pearson airport by two U.S. military jets.
    According to a video filmed by a passenger, officers shouted “hands up, heads down” as they boarded the plane shortly after it landed at about 9 a.m.

    The tactical unit arrested Ali Shahi, 25. Police charged the Canadian citizen with uttering threats and endangering the safety of an aircraft. The RCMP said its national security enforcement team is assisting with the investigation.

    Sunwing Flight 772 left Toronto at 7 a.m. with 183 passengers — including two infants — and a crew of six, and returned to Toronto at about 9 a.m.

    remember when we didn't have to be scared to fly on a plane or go to high school without getting shot? I can.

    Christ things are so different these days and not for the better.

    not only are we, the regular passengers treated like terrorists and criminals, the terrorists and criminals get onboard anyway.

    The 7th office appeared to be sweeping passengers with his muzzle. That must have been fun.

    And, you know, if SWAT's raiding a plane after a bomb threat, I wouldn't want to be holding a phone in my hand.

    ...i thought it was kinda dumb. if the guy had a bomb whats to stop him from pressing the button and blowing up the swat team along with everybody else? they must have had a sense that he was just talking and didnt really have a bomb.

    Just to put things in perspective, everyday there are 700,000 people flying at any given time on this planet and it's still statistically much safer then driving to your local liquor store on a Saturday night.

    :cool:

    Yeah, This is no longer America. Better to just stay home. Until they come for us at our houses that is. I wonder how much time the people have left?

    Unfortunately i live and work in the orange zone. and yes, i have been pulled over for absolutely no reason more times than i can remember. Many times held up for hours while they verify your story by calling everyone you know. Yes, that happens.
