Guess He Was Unhappy With His Job???

Hi guys!!! I have some really big news that I will post tomorrow about my job/my life. I am too tired to post it all right now because it really is quite a lot. So for now I will leave you a story I found to be very crazy.

A flight attendant in North Dakota was apparently very angry about his work route, so angry he set a fire in the airplane bathroom, forcing an emergency landing.

The Compass Airlines flight carrying 72 passengers and four crew members landed safely in Fargo,N.D. on May 7th after smoke filled the back. No injuries were reported. The plane was flying from Minneapolis to Regina, Saskatchewan, authorities said.

Eder Rojas, 19, appeared in court today, following his arrest a day earlier in Minneapolis, and ordered held without bail, prosecutors said. The charge of setting fire aboard a civil aircraft carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Court documents said Rojas, of the Twin Cities suburb of Woodbury, told authorities he was upset at the airline for making him work the route. He is accused of taking a lighter with him through the security checkpoint, authorities said.

"Rojas further stated that he was preparing his cart to serve the passengers, he set the cart up, went back to the lavatory and reached in with his right hand and lit the paper towels with the lighter," court documents said.

Pilot Steve Peterka told authorities that an indicator light came on about 35 minutes into the flight, showing smoke in the rear bathroom.

Peterka called Rojas, who was assigned passengers in the back of the plane, and asked him to check the bathroom, documents said. Rojas, another flight attendant and a passenger were credited with quickly putting out the flames with fire extinguishers, authorities said.

Investigators later found a lighter in one of the overhead bins. Rojas confessed after authorities interviewed him, the complaint said.

Rojas has been fired, said Northwest spokesman Rob Laughlin. FBI agent Ralph Boelter said Compass Airlines officials showed "extraordinary cooperation" in the investigation.

I'm sure he did. He's trying to get out of going to prison for 20 years after he could of killed 76 people. I just don't get people like this, if your unhappy about your job, talk to someone, don't risk peoples lives by doing crazy shit.

This guy is nuts.

We have a guy here in LA who wanted to kill himself by placing his car on a train track. At the last minute he changed his mind and got out of the car, but eleven people died in the train wreck. If you want to make a point, or do yourself in, then find, but don't take others with you.

There are so many freaks in our world today. Did you hear about the guy who jumped from a plane to his death last week? On purpose I might add. He was said to be asking his friends how they would rather die-Jumping off a builing or out of a plane. I guess we now know how his poll turned out.
