Maybe he never spoke at all...

(Written in response to Tiffany's piece below, this just arrived from a fellow patient, also named Gregg - note the two Gs...)

Greg -- From what I understand (and what i've read up to this point in tyme),
the facts about the (effective) execution of this man attempting to evacuate
the airplane are:

(1) He not only never claimed he had a bomb, he never spoke at all, never uttered ANYTHING, prior to when he was assassinated.

(2) His wife was following him as he attempted to deplane, explaining he "was
ill."

(3) He and the wife were en route to Orlando, FL. His flight had originated from
Ecuador and arrived in Miami, where the couple got off the plane (w/all the others
originating from Ecuador) and checked thru customs. Cleared thru customs, he
and his wife boarded the last leg of the flight from Miami to Orlando. Apparently, it
was sometime before the passenger boarding door closed (not clear if all passengers
were on board, or some still boarding the plane) that this man wanted off the plane.

Note, that to get to this point in his travel from Ecuador he had to have passed
through passenger boarding inspection in Ecuador and in Miami (customs, etc.).
That conceivably he could have had a bomb in his carry-on bag(s) seems less than
remote. Ie., that air marshalls could imagine that he passed through security
(esp entering the US from another country) twice and managed to conceal a bomb
appears bizarre. And if they really suspected that this could be a possibility then what does that say for the security measures in force at airports?


(4) When he evacuated the plane into the jetway, he was wearing a moderately
sized fanny pack which prevented him lying protrate on his stomach as was alleged
he was ordered to do. Seemingly, this noncompliance to the satisfaction of
the air marshall(s) on top of him, was the reason offered for why he was then
murdered.

(5) One report I read claimed that he was shot 4 times, at least twice in the back, from very close range.


(6) Supposedly, up to 40% of the "air marshalls" that are "trained" (attack dog style)
are recruited from a recent pool of (now) unemployed (former) prison guards. Must be
for their communication and interpersonal skills no doubt developed on the job.
