It's Official... MSNM Is Now Questioning Air Marshals Actions !

Here we go folks...Time Magazine has published a story questioning the actions of the Air Marshals in the shooting death of the man who claimed to have a bomb at Miami Airport on 12/7/2005:

At least one passenger aboard American Airlines Flight 924 maintains the federal air marshals were a little too quick on the draw when they shot and killed Rigoberto Alpizar as he frantically attempted to run off the airplane shortly before take-off.

"I don't think they needed to use deadly force with the guy," says John McAlhany, a 44-year-old construction worker from Sebastian, Fla. "He was getting off the plane." McAlhany also maintains that Alpizar never mentioned having a bomb.

"I never heard the word 'bomb' on the plane," McAlhany told TIME in a telephone interview. "I never heard the word bomb until the FBI asked me did you hear the word bomb. That is ridiculous." Even the authorities didn't come out and say bomb, McAlhany says. "They asked, 'Did you hear anything about the b-word?'" he says. "That's what they called it."

And you just have to love this part...

He says he saw Alpizar eating a sandwich in the boarding area before getting on the plane. He looked normal at that time, McAlhany says. He thinks the whole thing was a mistake: "I don't believe he should be dead right now."

I'm sure thats what the passangers of the planes that hit the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and flight 93, said just before the terrorist took over the planes and killed them and thousands more on 9/11.

Hate to say I told you so...but, I told you so.

OK, last time here: the snark factor is simply over the top. You give yourself away. A true believer who wouldn't take facts into account if they bit you in the ass. I pity the citizens who have the misfortune of having to deal with you.


At least you're 2 states away.

An Air Marshal's job is not to kill people. Their jobs are to keep people safe. They did not keep this passenger safe. They killed him. What kind of country do we want; One that kills people?

The passengers never heard this guy mention �bomb�. The Air Marshals are just using this to cover their butts for killing someone.
