Once again a plane intended to ferry party-animal Canadians to a booze soaked week in the tropics, has “had” to turn back to Toronto. No, planes don’t have to go back if there is a drunk on board. They have jail cells wherever the plane may land. Why inconvenience, and possibly terrify the entire plane load of passengers so the airline and military industries can get their jollies sending up fighter planes to “protect” us all from drunk people?
The fighters have two options while in the air. They can shoot at the passenger jet, or not shoot the jet.
