Why would someone choose to stab people on a plane but not in other tight situations like offices, concerts, sporting events, etc? It's silly. The is the first common sense thing the TSA has done.


People can walk out of an office, concert, or sporting event if some nut job tries to start something. On a plane, they're stuck. This isn't common sense on the TSA's part.

Let me just point out that 9/11 was pulled off with fricking box cutters. I kind of think the consequences are slightly different between a plane and someone stabbing someone in an office. What the frick?

You're crazy, passengers should be able to carry guns on flights.

J/K

This is what's going to be next in this thread. I was simply foreshadowing if you will.

A small pocket knife hanging on your key chain, or say a bunch of Muslims that planned and prepared to use box cutters to cut throats, considering at the time people were conditioned to set on their arse instead of take on the bad guys.

Now a drunk Organizing for Acce$$ rep giving the stew shite will end up duct taped to his seat, I can see things have changed.

I know. I keep telling myself that some of those posters use this board for venting and aren't really as nuts in real life.
















Hey, mods . . . just let me know when I offend your sensibilities and I'll back off.

You really think 9/11 happened because of box cutters? You think a few hundred people were afraid of box cutters compared to crashing? I can't believe how blurred from reality the past ten years have made people.

What's the upside for the TSA by allowing knives? The agents checking bags have one less thing to worry about or something? However, I read where the TSA is citing that knives do not endanger the actual plane itself as the reason for the policy change.

Because it doesn't, anyone that thinks a pocket knife will endanger aircraft has watched too many movies.

Exactly. The plane is not endangered by small knives. People have virtually the same risk to a small knife attack on ground as they do in the air. Why would someone go on a crazy knife attack on a plane when he can use a gun on the ground?

I concede that at the time hijackings were associated with ransom and the general mindset of the public/ passengers was to let the authorities handle the situation. US citizens were never coached to overthrow terrorist on a plane. By the time passengers on flight 93 got word they knew they were dead.

I literally have no idea what this means?

Still, it threatens the life of the flight attendants and other passengers. It's just not good policy to know someone can come behind you with a knife to your throat. I know your argument is it can happen at a restaurant etc.. The problem is airplane terrorism has a huge psychological effect on us and the terrorist know this. If we can avoid them disturbing our transportation of flights and potentially commerce then let's do it.

The days of a passenger jet to be taken over by people with box cutters is over. The TSA is doing the right thing by lifting this ban.

So does a full can of Diet Coke, fricking brain her with that can she hasn't opened yet, then what happens to the guy that did it? You can't fricking stab your way through an entire flight of people, then what, you land at Ohare and get hauled to prison?

I suspect congress is going to act on this before long. Delta Airlines is already out in opposition to the new rules and I am reading flight attendants could go on strike over this so we shall see the political will of the TSA.
