From the dailymail.co.uk: “An infuriated air passenger has been arrested after apparently lashing out at a teen who would not turn his iPhone off before landing.
The 68-year-old, named as Russell Miller, reportedly punched the boy in the arm after he ignored announcements to switch off phones on the final approach to Boise, Idaho.
The 15-year-old, who had been playing on his phone during the flight from Las Vegas, received a hard blow from his neighbour which left a mark.”
I’m trying to view this as an assault, but I’m having a hard time with it.
Seriously- what’s worse? Some teenager getting a bruise, or a whole goddamned plane falling out of the fucking sky because some dumbass teenager can’t go with out texting for 20 fucking minutes?
With all the stupid shit they’ll have you arrested for doing on a plane nowadays, they ought to give the old man a medal for saving everyone’s life- and throw the little fucktard and his parents in the hoosegow for a few days to think about what might of happened.
