Crazy Bible thumper subdued on airline flight.

Paul Marchuk III is a little nuts and not just because he believes in an invisible Sky Fairy who grants wishes if you believe in him. It seems he caused a Delta Airlines flight from Seattle to Atlanta to be diverted to Nashville after he freaked out on the plane and started screaming Bible verses at the person sitting next to him. You’re just going to love the reason for his freaking out:

According to a police arrest warrant, “The suspect would not allow the person sitting next to him to leave her seat to use the restroom. The suspect kept telling her that his blood would be on her and he was not going to let her leave no matter what happened. Several passengers restrained the suspect and the suspect attempted to bite one of the passengers in the leg.”

The Boeing 757 with 178 passengers and a six-person crew flew on to Atlanta where it landed some 1 1/2 hours late.

I suppose it might be a tad unfair to call Mr. Marchuk III crazy just because he refused to let the person next to him use the bathroom. After all just think of all the airline tragedies caused by someone using the bathroom at the wrong time. The article doesn’t say who the person was that was sitting next to Mr. Marchuk III. Maybe she looked a little Middle Eastern and he thought she was going to the bathroom not to pee, but to mix up a bomb from the various small but TSA approved bottles of liquid in her purse. Maybe he had a perfectly rational reason for freaking out.

Nah, he’s probably just crazy.

  1. Well, at least he was unable to behead her, unlike the freak who went off at the guy sitting next to him on a Canadian Greyhound trip.

    Maybe there’s something to be said for airline security after all.

    Heck of a story anyway. Yeesh.

  2. Oh great!

    That is all we need here another bible thumping nut case, ugh.  Ship him back home we have enough crazies here in Nashville or better yet just ship off to live with the christian snake handlers that live in the eastern part of the state, he sounds like their kind of people.

  3. I remember awhile back a few passengers on a plane got upset because two other passengers were speaking Arabic, so this doesn’t surprise me.  The fact that it was a bible-thumper surprises me even less.

    He’s crazy, but not much worse than airport security anyway.  This is why I don’t fly on airlines anymore.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another.

  4. What do you fly on, then, Swordsbane? 

    Well… rum and coke mostly smile

    I actually do fly.  I have a pilot’s license.  I just don’t see the point in paying people to be rude to me, suspect me of terrorism and/or lose my luggage.  I’m always afraid that the government’s paranoia will start creeping into general aviation and I won’t be able to land without someone strip-searching me and asking me a bunch of stupid questions.  For the time being, though, being a pilot means you’re more or less above suspicion.

    Which is pretty stupid when you think about it.  If a terrorist comes to this country and is able to get a pilot’s license, he can pretty much get anywhere in the country a plane will take him with anything the plane will carry.  It’s been a while, so I don’t know if they tightened up the regulations for getting a pilot’s license, but if it’s anything like what I did, it’s not that hard.

    And we expect beurorats to make a success of running our health care? The TSA keeps looking at the wrong people in the wrong situations. What a joke!  snake

    TSA was ALWAYS looking at the wrong people.  It’s just that after 9/11 they got stupid about it….. Well, I mean more stupid.  They never could take a joke, or does anyone remember when it wasn’t a bad idea to talk about bombs in an airport while security was within earshot.

    And right now, our choice on health care seems to be either the corrupt or the incompetent.  I honestly don’t know which I prefer.

  7. This guy, the freaked out Freaking Krixstain asshole, should have his name and picture added to the list of ‘Terrorists’ that ‘Homeland Security’ maintains,  and never be allowed to fly again. If I was that woman, I would have scratched the bastards eyes out, or punched him in his balls!
