Air marshal fatally shoots man at Miami airportAs a wise man once said, "He's an idiot. He's dead. Good."
An agitated passenger who claimed to have a bomb in his backpack was shot and killed by a federal air marshal Wednesday after he bolted frantically from a jetliner that was boarding for take off, officials said. No bomb was found.
I heard people today defending the actions of the officer, but qualifying their stance with the obligatory "But it's still a tragedy." Fuck that. Anyone who possesses the mental vigor to claim he has a bomb on his person and then refuses to comply with police orders gets zero sympathy from me, terrorist or not, surviving family or not.
Most strict libertarians would likely moan about increasing state power perpetuating a state of fear or some such nonsense. I on the other hand hold no grudge against state officers striking down those of us either too dangerous or simply incompetent to be trusted during wartime.
Why so down, Bill?
We're missing a moron. We're missing a moron!
