I posted this idea a few years ago. I guess it is time to post it again.
With modern technology it is possible to install a "panic button" in a airliner.
There could be multiple buttons through out the aircraft.
When a button is pressed the aircraft no longer responds to control inputs from the flight deck. The aircraft automatically starts circling and it's transponder code is changed to show an emergency. Ground control then takes command of the aircraft and lands it at the nearest airport.
End of problem.
