Swedish lady stopped the deportion of a man to Afghanistan. I know, some of you will hate her for what she's doing. For me, she is acting like a human
being and i have much respect. We need more people like her who care about others and less idiots only spreading hate.
As for stopping the deportation, this lady should be arrested for acting like that on a plane. If the guy, about whose case we have no idea, was there
illegally, then he should be sent back to his country and decide to go to Sweden legally. If he's there legally, then he shouldn't be deported if he
has done nothing wrong.
But this lady was given much more patience than she deserved. I would have escorted her off of the plane myself. She has ZERO knowledge if the guy was
going to be killed, or whether or not he was actually going make it there (they were going to Istanbul and a determination would be made there).
I admire her non-violence and courage to do this alone, but I do NOT agree with what she did or how she did it. Holding an entire flight basically
hostage to get your way concerning a passenger over whom you have zero authority is not okay.
Any follow-up on this story? Did they just put him on the next plane to Istanbul? Like I said, she's courageous for what she did, but it should have
been handled prior to that point and not on a plane. As for her claim that she did not commit a crime--I doubt that, but I don't have any sort of
appropriate understanding of Swedish laws governing conduct on airplanes.

I'm from the UK and tens of thousands are kicked out every year if their claims to asylum are denied. Tough luck but I'm not campaigning about UK
immigration policy because we'd be over run if we let everyone stay.
I would never report an illegal immigrant to authorities for being here illegally, but I won't cry if he/she gets caught.
Unlucky mate, good effort, you came here illegally and failed...cat and mouse game, the cat won, unlucky.
Man, I don't know what to make of that. My first reaction would be to say that that is a very brave young lady.
After watching a bit more, I began to question her sanity.
After watching a bit more I began to question the sanity of the other passengers held up on their trip.
(In the US, the other passengers would have demanded the girl be thrown off the plane and typically within about another 15 minutes a fight/brawl
would have broken out).
Now I'm questioning my own sanity because I'm starting to suspect the whole thing was staged.
She makes the statement she hasn't broken any laws? I find that hard to believe.
So I watch more and an angry English man tries to take her phone away from her (go England) and demands she either leave the plane or sit down. But
then a flight attendant rescues the phone and shuts up the English man.
And then a football (soccer) team takes to their feet and kids are crying and women wailing. But she doesn't know if the other passengers are
standing in solidarity with her or not; they may just be confused.
Then she reports they're taking the Afghan's bags off the plane and the flight attendant indicates they will make the man leave the plane. She
refuses to leave until she knows the Afghan is off the plane.
So then she leaves the plane in a heated discussion, I guess with "Security" person, but its all in Swedish so it sounds kinda like;
So, my conclusion is that even if for all wrong reasons, she's a pretty brave young lady. But understand I may be biased because she could be my
daughter's twin. And in a world gone mad, after all, what's one more Afghan in Sweden anyway. I wish them all well, although I suspect she's been
carted off to one of those Swedish Hospitals for Mental Rehabilitation. But, hey........its Sweden, how bad can that be?
