It is the first week of September as we approach the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Was this a test or just a bunch of disgusting bullies with bad timing?

Via Dallas Morning News.

FBI special agent T. Scott Hendricks has filed an affidavit explaining why Southwest Airlines diverted a San Diego-Chicago flight to Amarillo late Monday and booted six passengers off the flight.

The six, said to be members of a San Diego area soccer team, were subsequently arrested and charged with “interference with a flight crew and abetting.”

Basically, according to Hendricks per Southwest, the passengers -Khalid Yohana, 19; Wasim Imad Shaker, 23; Essa Solaqa, 20; Ghazwan Assad Shaba, 21; Jonathan Khalid Petras, 20; and Saiman Hermez, 19- were refusing orders from the flight attendants, challenging their authority and being mean to other passengers.

One flight attendant said that during the emergency demonstration prior to takeoff, the six “were asked numerous times to put their seat backs and tray tables up, which is required for takeoff of the aircraft, to which they verbally responded ‘no.'”

They “complied” after the flight attendant warned them the airplane would return to the gate if they didn’t do so.

“Later, while the flight attendants were taking drink orders, the six passengers started talking loudly and using profanity,” Hendricks said in his affidavit. The flight attendant “asked them to quiet down and they responded, ‘We can be as loud as we want and do whatever the [expletive] we want on here. You can’t make us listen.'”

When the flight attendant “said they couldn’t do that, they lunged forward in their seats and said, ‘We can do whatever we want on here.'”

    Sounds like some more of the entitled class who think they can do as they please and enforce their will upon others by intimidation or force. The world seems to be seeing that they can dump on us with NO consequences. Thank our prezzy and his cohorts.

      Another example of those who come to America, not to assimilate, but to use and abuse. I actually live in Spring Valley. Chaldean community remains very separate.

    There should be zero tolerance for this bulls***. If these bastards are not taken to court, tried and sent to jail you will see this happen a hundredfold. Disgusting.

    With names like that it is clear that they are just fun loving boys on a soccer team. (Sarc)
