Prison time for flight attendant attackOne of the first publically announced prison sentences for a person who attacked a flight attendant. This was in Federal Court, so she'll have to serve at least 85% of her time. (www.kron4.com) More...

this needs to be publically announced across all media segments so as to transmit clearly the costs in prison time, attorney fees and fines that result from the attack on the flight attendant. Also clear up the backlog of similar defendants and give them their day in court, followed by their months in federal prison, if convicted. Sooner or later this nonsense will slow down, perhaps cease. we got plenty of courtrooms, judges, federal prosecutors, and plents of idiots who act out on airline flights with violence. Line em up.......
Agreed. The only way this shit will stop is If it makes as much news as the initial incident. I do think 15 months was a bit short though, it can get spun as “a little over a year” when I think 28 months would have been more appropriate (she’ll do 24). However, she does have the felony tag.
Would not matter. You think it serves as a deterrent for future actions but the reality is the people who are doing these things are so unhinged from reality and are not rationally thinking about the consequences of their actions.
So, just let these idiots misbehave without any repercussions? They publicize the incident, so his sentence needs to be also.
Publicizing events like this often inspires other crazy people to do the same thing so they get their time in the spotlight. There is no easy solution.
Same with mass shootings. Some say they will slow down or stop if not publicized. Another many facetted problem.
Yes, you are 100% RIGHT, but Would it not be nice if we see those Boeing executives end up in jail as well
Maybe so, sir...however, even Pavlov was able to train dogs after REPITITION was used (along with treats, but...). After repeating the same kid of sentence and fines, even these morons should be able to get the picture and find some other way and some other place to vent. Or...equip flight attendants with Tasers. A few drive-stuns here and there will certainly get their attention!!
