Delta Flight 2485 was taxiing in Miami when 43-year old Mansor Mohammad Asad started making “loud and disruptive, using anti-Semitic references such as, ‘I’m Palestinian and I want kill all the Jews‘“. He was reported to be speaking in Arabic.
The captain decided to take the plane back to the jet-bridge and got Asad removed from the flight. Later a Taser device was used to “neutralize” Asad after he tried charged at an officer.
He was taken off the plane and searched, police said. While they tried to search him, he berated officers and made racist comments.
According to the arrest affidavit, Asad said: “ `I’m not afraid of you cops. I’ve gotten in fights with cops in Ohio and broke their arms in three places. I’ve broken skulls too.’ ”
He then prayed and chanted, before telling a cop to “Go back to Africa, you white racist cop!”
Asad was searched, but officers did not find any weapons or explosives.
During the search, his socks and shoes were removed. An officer took off Asad’s right handcuff so he could put them back on.
When the officer did that, Asad once again started yelling at the officers.
He “stood up and rolled up his sleeves. He then clenched his fists and charged,” toward another officer, the report said.
He wouldn’t stop and officers used a Taser on him. Asad fell to the ground, but did not listen to officers’ commands and then tried to stand up. A Taser was used a second time.
He was then handcuffed and taken to the jail.
He is definitely either “mentally unstable” to do such a stupid act. After the failed Christmas attack, it is any one’s biggest nightmare to have a nut case like him on a flight.
