    Do they have a shoot to kill policy like what happened to the Brazilian guy in the UK? If they shoot someone in the leg that isn't going to stop them from detonating a bomb, the only way to ensure a bomb doesn't go off is to make sure the guy is good and dead. Bipolar or not, if someone is so beyond stupid to play a game like this let them get whatever's coming to them. He's responsible for being off his meds, he's responsible for what happened on the plane.

    It'll be interesting to hear what the people on board say happened...if we're ever privy to that information.

    WEll they (the passengers) all say that they never heard the word "bomb"; which I knew was just typical spin by the airmarshal agency to help justify the murder...but yeah, I don't really think they had much of a choice, it just seems like they overreact for the wrong reasons and under-react when we really need them to protect us.

    The Today show interviewed a retired air marshall, and he said they don't try to shoot in the hand or leg because of the chance of the bullet richocheting and hitting an innocent bystander....
