good on the one lady who thought to cover her nose and mouth with her jacket


The same one who's got her phone out? Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this?

(*thinks to themself* possibly sitting in an ebola infected plane, but that's ok just as long as I catch some awesome video...)

Anyone?

I see several things wrong with this whole story.

Well, the problem is that even if there are some glaring inconsistencies and problems -- the doom porn aspect of it will overpower logical thinking in 99% of the public.

If Brian Williams tells a scary story, it must be absolutely true!

Worked pretty well on me. Sigh.

No more would I stand up with a bulky vest and scream Allahu Akbar, either.


So just to be clear, I shouldn't be doing that?

Really though, who could ever have foreseen the consequences? That was sarcasm. It would be akin to joking about about a bomb on a plane. Now don't get me wrong, I would have seen a little bit of humor if someone would have joked about a bomb after the Blue Man Group boarded the plane, but it would not have been a very good joke. Even if every single passenger on the plane understood and got the humor in such a joke, that doesn't change the fact that those in charge are basing what they do on written rules, not common sense. So even if it was very obvious that what was said was a joke, and nobody on the plane felt threatened, this is going to be the response.

So even if the humor is evident, it is a lapse in judgement, or a total lack thereof, to make a joke of that nature on a plane. Anyway, the US military is going to Africa to fight Ebola with automatic weapons and explosives, so I think we can rest easy. It sort of worked in Iraq with the Taliban, so I foresee success.

They lead dude out the front entrance in front of everyone without even issuing him a a mask.

I guess if you got it they send you home. If you mention it they bring an army. They knew this exercise would go viral on all those phones.

Whipsers-- (be very afraid)

Pun intended?

You make a good point. Why wouldn't they require him to put on a mask and some gloves just in case? I think perhaps this was a training thing with crisis actors (not False Flag baloney) and is being represented as an actual scare. They have to practice somehow.

I don't fly. But those who do have all been informed now what they might be in for.


I agree with you. They let the passengers film this knowing full well everyone on line would get the message. I think the passengers and even "sneezing black dude" were not staged.

Free advertising, better than running expensive tv ads?

If this was a training exercise, then it wasn't a real flight. Real plane, real crew yes, but not a real flight. They would have put the people on the flight, and acted out what would happen if it was real.

I haven't read all the responses from members here. Is that the consensus, it wasn't real? Seems staged, don't it? But an object lesson as well. They want us to think it was real so we know what to expect. Like I said, I don't fly commercial.

I got to figure if it was real they would not allow people to record it. Or splash dudes face like they did.

There are holes in the story that point to it being a training exercise.

Really hope that wasn't serious measures taken for his "joke" but was a sort training exercise, but still it didn't look right, it shows how unprepared things are. At least they had the suits on hand! But the zipper was open on one shown-earlier post. Let's say he was not joking: despite it sounded like it was a stupid joke that he was confronted, then reacted to when being escorted off of the plane as opposed to a training exercise where he'd probably be acting out being ill instead. Would they have really let him walk down the isle without a mask, possible suit type apparatus, etc? Likely they(and other airports, as hospitals are starting now) will need to conduct some drills because it may go beyond normal preparedness protocols for spread of disease.

About people catching it on cell cameras: Cell cams are a positive thing -despite any selfish-attention seekers-, because, it shows what can happen in such a situation(bad joke) to if it was a "what if" corruption situation that filming and or putting on the web in case the phones are confiscated, can be expose it.

This is more ignorance than mental illness.

He was ignorant of the fact that using the word Ebola in these times on a plane would garner an actual reaction.

Yes it's stupid, but it's also a learning experience for everyone out of the loop and to reveal the level of seriousness the overall situation is within containing the spread for the people involved.

Should he be charged? To some sure, but I wouldn't think so. It's a mistake if anything, and we all make those from time to time, whether we are ignorant of important current information or not.
