    Default Potential Terrorist Arrested on flight Between London-Puerto Plata

    I heard on todays flight TOM096 (Thomson) from London Gatwick-Puerto Plata a man with Middle Eastern appearance was arrested on-board by police just before the plane taxied to the runway. The police removed his hand baggage and arrested the man without a struggle, the rest of his luggage was 'fished out' resulting in a 90 minute delay for the passengers.

    big news when a middle eastern looking man is arrested. when they find out it was a mistake and release him with appology, no news is made anywhere and no news media seems to take interest.
    same thing happened years ago when an innocent indian Sikh was arrested on false accusations (terrorism). his picture and name was flashed all over the news media. then he was released after questioning because the authorities had the wrong man. news media was quick to flash his name and his video on the news but not a single media outlet cared to clear his name publicly. this incident cause a great deal of damage to the man as he was not looked upon a trustworthy person in that community again.

    sure, its always better to be safe than sorry but you must clear his name publicly as well. Just like his name and identity was flashed on the news media, the same should be done to clear his name. that's all we ask for. In this case, if the man is innocent, the news media should write the man who was pulled off the plane was a mistaken identity and blah bah. that's all.
    Now the people only remember a middle eastern looking man pulled off the plane. no one knows what happened to this case. what was more important that a middle eastern man was pulled off for suspected terrorism. he could have been from brazil or even south american, but all is important, he looked middle eastern.

    there is nothing in the media about this, neither local or british. maybe it's better to discuss the events that have been confirmed by independent sources.

    People get arrested on planes maybe every day, most of them are drugtraffickers, not terrorists.
