  •  This guy sounded like he was drunk (12+ / 0-)

    before he even got on the plane.  Delta should have denied his boarding.

    They should have definitely not served him more alcohol.  If some guy got up from the 16th row to confront this guy (and that's before he hit the baby), then he was being a total asshole the whole flight.

    I blame Delta for this as well.

      Just no.  Their failing to identify a drunk (smelling of alcohol doesn't mean one is drunk, and after any extended amount of time traveling, a lot of people start to stink) does not remove ANY of this man's responsibility for striking someone else's child.

      If there were signs of his drunkenness that they missed, that is another matter entirely, to be prosecuted in a separate case.  It does NOT relieve this man of any blame.

      Don't blame booze for violence committed by violent assholes.  Blame violent assholes for violence committed by violent assholes.
