The Federal Aviation Administration on Monday said it would continue to crack down on unruly passengers, extending the zero-tolerance policy it implemented in January. Airlines have reported more than 500 cases since late December, according to the agency.

Most of those cases were related to travelers who refused to wear face masks, which both airlines and the federal government require for commercial air travel, the FAA said.

“I have decided to extend the FAA’s unruly-passenger zero-tolerance policy as we continue to do everything we can to confront the pandemic,” FAA Administrator Steve Dickson said in a statemtn. “The policy directs our safety inspectors and attorneys to take strong enforcement action against any passenger who disrupts or threatens the safety of a flight, with penalties ranging from fines to jail time. The number of cases we’re seeing is still far too high, and it tells us urgent action continues to be required.”

Oh, that asshole the other day is gonna pay big.
As well they should.

You know, for a nation that's supposed to be "the best" and "the leader of the free world" it sure is pathetic that the majority of the populace are patent idiots and assholes.

You can't expect Americans to act like Americans anymore. They're all spoiled brats that have to have draconian laws enacted to make them behave like an adult rather than a 5 year old spoiled child.
