Flight Attendant Shakedown at OK Corral (Read on a Stolen iPad)

Flight attendants made the news this weekend with one flight attendant bringing her gun to work even though it was not Bring Your GUn to Work day. (Note: It is NEVER bring your gun to work day for a flight attendant, even if you have a valid Chester County permit to carry a concealed weapon as Republic Airlines FA Jaclyn Luby did.) The .38 caliber Smith and Wesson Airweight was in her purse. After it was confiscated when it showed up at checkpoint, a police officer was attempting to unload it and discharged it into the wall. Oops. I guess the wall was judged guilty, and it didn’t away. Bad wall. The Flight Attendant is being charged with disorderly conduct, and the police officer is on desk duty.

There’s also Horizon Air flight attendant Wendy Ronelle Dye who said that a passenger brought her an iPad he found on a seat, and she never used it, honest, even though the owner used an ap to track it to her house, and police say they found some of her personal information on it.
