He didn’t need to be on an airplane at ALL. His wife bears some responsibility for this, even as God awful difficult it is living with a bi-polar. She could have discretely warned the crew, if what this other passenger says is true.

Ellen Sutliff, who said she sat near Alpizar, described him as agitated, even before he boarded the plane. His wife kept coaxing him, “We just have to get through customs. Please, please help me get through this,” according to Sutliff.
“We’re going to be home soon, and everything will be all right,” Sutliff quoted the wife as saying

    Well, she did only ask God to get her through Customs.
    Sorry. Sick joke.

    See? Tell McCabe he does listen!

  3. I dare say I don’t think anyone would have been quite as sympathetic if he’d jumped up and opened a door mid-flight.

  4. It is a tragic situation, but why didn’t his psychiatrist have him balanced? Of course the Air Marshalls only did their job.

    GALA, if I know anything about this, and unfortunately, I do, his psych proabably did have him balanced, but he wasn’t compliant with the meds. THS is right, his wife had to know he wasn’t compliant, and still a) brought him on the plane, and b) didn’t tell anyone else. Some of his blood is on her hands.

    I’ve got some bi-polars in my extended family. Most of the time, once they’ve been on meds for a while, they think they’ve been “cured,” like it’s a cold or some shit. Then they start wigging out again a month or so later. It’s sad.

  7. Cullen says:

    I should add that they stop taking their meds once they think they’re “cured.”

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    The “See, I’m Ok, I don’t need my medicine” bit, eh Cullen? Awful.
