Some cannot help but think their appearance had something to do with a family’s removal from a plane Tuesday morning at Memphis International Airport.
“My understanding is they were dressed in attire that would indicate some Muslim-type religion,” said airport vice-president Scott Brockman.
“The family was asked to leave the aircraft, which they did peacefully,” said Brockman. “At that point, the aircraft was inspected and cleared,” he added.
A bomb-sniffing dog and other measures resulted in a two-hour delay. The family was placed on a later flight following an interview with the FBI.
Thanks to Juan Williams’ legitimization of this kind of irrational response, I guess people dressed in religious garb no longer can pee in crappy airplane bathrooms without expecting to be detained by the FBI.
