Flight Attendant Takes Care of Business
« on: February 08, 2010, 07:54:19 PM »

Nice story. I like how she was smart enough to adjust her art to fit where she'd need it.

Quote
A San Francisco man, accused of forcing a flight to divert because he was high on medical marijuana, picked the wrong flight attendant to freak out on.

Lorin Gorman of Chula Vista is a fourth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Those skills may have averted a serious situation in the air.   

US-Air flight 1447 was on its way from Philadelphia to San Francisco.

Gorman, 51, says she noticed Kinman Chan, 30, early in the flight. "He was looking back at me, waving hi," Gorman said of the man in seat 17-C.

But soon enough, the passenger became aggressive, Gorman says. "He's banging around, screaming in the back bathroom, he's opened all the compartments," the attendant remembers.

According to a criminal complaint, Chan walked out of the bathroom with his pants down.

"I said, ‘You need to sit down now’,” Gorman said.

He did not. "He went like that with his elbow," Gorman said, bracing her wrist as she threw an elbow at shoulder height. "Well, what I did, I just put him in an arm lock.  To get his other arm, I had to jump up on the seat … He was resisting.  He was stiff. At that point, I just put him into a choke hold."

The plane was diverted to Pittsburgh where Chan was arrested. He told police he'd taken a double dose of his medicinal marijuana, eating two pot cookies before the flight.

"After 911, I took special training with my grand master to learn how to deal with small spaces and also what to look for in passengers," Gorman said. "I'm glad I was there."

Kinman Chan was charged with disrupting a flight attendant, which can carry a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Guys-if you want to have a learning experience-go to your airport-and go to the entrance where they check you before you enter the area reserved for planeing-
Watch the body language of the passengers and also important watch the security officer who is supossed to be observing the passengers-you will learn a great deal in a short period of time. Then if you have been overseas compare the programs......See if you can pick out plain clothes security/police......If any..........


OK-now fly into Isreal----and observe as you enter and exit the main airport.

Homeland security has Behaviour Detection officeers especially for this type of situation. But they only have them at 60 airports. But why worry. The glorious Big O, is going to bring all of the terrorists from Gitmo to the US

Great for that flight attendant. She also exhibited not only proficiency but restraint from her training. As for that man, I would bet our court system would just give him a slap in the wrist. It's sad that we are more lenient on tourists and grant immunity to foreign officials, yet we don't even lift a finger for our citizens if they get into trouble in another country. Look at Haiti. Our missionaries are charged with kidnapping (mainly getting the kids to safety) and jailed under barbaric conditions. Yet our govt. don't stand up and don't do a thing about it. Because of stuff like that, I am not giving a dime to Haiti since its govt. is also corrupt as hell.
