Breaking: Air Marshalls Defend Miami Airport

BREITBART.COM - Airline Passenger Who Made Threat Killed: "MIAMI - A passenger who claimed to have a bomb in a carry-on bag was shot and killed by a federal air marshal Wednesday on a jetway to an American Airlines plane that had arrived from Colombia, officials said. No bomb was found in the bag, a U.S. official said. Homeland Security Department spokesman Brian Doyle said the dead man was a 44-year-old U.S. citizen. It was the first time since the Sept. 11 attacks that an air marshal had shot at anyone, he said.

According to a witness, the man frantically ran down the aisle of the Boeing 757 while his wife tried to explain that he was mentally ill and had not taken his medication.

The passenger indicated there was a bomb in his bag and was confronted by air marshals but ran off the aircraft, Doyle said. The marshals went after him and ordered him to get down on the ground, but he did not comply and was shot when he apparently reached into the bag, Doyle said."

Good shot. After those British officers took a guy down with 4 head shots, the Marshalls had this guy down real fast too.
Apparently, the wife said he was bi-polar, and had maniac depression. Now, what that has to do with running through an air plane threating to bomb everyone to little pieces, I don't know.

Security forces have to make rapid decisions sometimes. I guess we have to accept that.
