    Is there any evidence that perhaps these airline employees are targeted by terrorists?? seems that having flight crew go crazy would be a simple way to create terror in even a greater degree.... by the customers beginning not to trust the company they do business with.... Terror does not have to be just bombs and guns... I dare say more terror is created if you think the people responsible for your life are "crazy" One always has to be aware of what is taking place around us

    They are two sides to each story . Defense is only looking for favorabillity for his client in public forum.Judgement is base upon on both side of the case . Let see the prosecution 's evidence of this matter.Innocent until proven guilty in court of law.
