I'm not going to judge someone for their reaction to being assualted at work.No clue how most people would respond in those circumstances.

I honestly don't see why he is an "American Hero."All I see is a boor who took his feelings out on a bunch of innocent people. The woman shouldn't have hit him, she should not have cursed at him, etc. I am not excusing that. But, he did that and more. She is not the villian and he the hero. She is a woman who did something wrong, he is a man who did something worse when there were many, many, many other recourses for him, including having the woman arrested. Honestly, it kind of disappoints and embarasses me that he is being touted as a "hero." There are plenty of heroes in America. He is not one of them. He is a man who gave into primitive feeling and committed uncouth and selfish actions by lashing out at those around him. Sure we fantasize about telling our bosses off; we fantasize about quiting in a dramatic, theatrical fashion. But it is the person who does so with grace and decorum that is the hero. It is the person who does so without inflicting their aggressions on others that is the hero. But, I'm in a bad mood, so that could be a reason this leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

(Okay, well you pay for your ticket, but I would have paid more.) When are you ever going to get that type of show again?
Now the passengers are speaking up. According to them, he was rude right from the start of the flight. Snapping at them, refusing requests, and constantly slamming overhead bins and the galley fridge door.
