The unfriendly skies

I'm way late to this, but it's a slow day and I'm still fascinated by the story of the Jet Blue flight attendant, Steven Slater. He'd had enough of an unpleasant passenger. He popped the plane's emergency chute, grabbed a beer and exited before his plane reached its Kennedy Airport gate.

I know it's wrong, but I find myself at least a little sympathetic to Slater. There are some rude passengers up there.

Thoughts?

UPDATE: The story has been animated by the Chinese news animators.
