Teenager Tweets Terrorist Threat to American Airlines

送信時刻:
 
A 14-year-old girl named Sarah using the Twitter handle @QueenDemetriax_ sent a threatening tweet to American Airlines early Sunday and the response, both on the part of the airline and the online community, was sure and swift. The note, which in part read “My name is Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan,” concluding “I’m going to do something really big bye” received an immediate reply from American’s social media team, which effectively pointed out that pranks on Twitter have more consequences… (www.frequentbusinesstraveler.com) さらに...

Send her to jivie until majority. Then place dumb bunny on NO FLY list and will have to endure mounds of legal paperwork just to get permission to set foot on a plane. Maybe point will be driven home. Cant do shit like that no matter the age.

Just like other people who have committed computer crimes... Remove her ability to use any internet connected device until she is 18 years old... that includes smart phones, computers, and anything else that can communicate on the internet.

I have been banned off every website and forum from Seattle to Vladivostock. That includes all the aviation sites, youtube and a few more. Now I ask you...have I ever upset anyone? Never made a threat...sometimes included a WTF but really this is just crazy. What is the point of having the NSA if they cannot phise out an email like this?

That begs the question ... how are you posting here? When you say "like this" do you mean like yours or like the 14-yr-old's?
Derg
I can post here because this is a USA run site that stays within the constition of the USA. The ones I get banned off are mainly run by EUR people. The UK for stance has no bill of rights and they get seriously alarmed if you have an opinion. I think this was a twitter post and not an email. Please the NSA technology picked up the key words. Generally I do not have any problem at all with USA peopled sites. The UKers are the ones who get upset. All to do with serfdom and being subject to royals etc....

Must be wunnerful for all youse USA's to have a "constition" :-))))

Ah ... I took your comment "That includes all the aviation sites, youtube and a few more" - literlly.
Derg
I am just not sure what I did to upset the YouTube people. The servers these days tend to get filtered by the country of entry. Personally I find this situation annoying because I used to listen to Clearchannel radio stations from the USA but they stopped entry into the UK. They are not doing the USA any favours by doing this because the market is global. Here in the EUR Lufthansa is particularly sensitive to comments that are not positive and they do exert pressure on the forum proprietors.

Roland dent you send e mails just like the childish Pratt you are come out of your safe haven and realise there is a whole world out side your beloved who frown upon the USA simply because of idiots with brains in their boots like you.

BETTER YET ANY FORM OF COMMUNICATION FOR THEIR WHOLE LIFE. ALL OF IT.

IF THEY CAN NOT USE EVEN A BASIC TELEPHONE THEY WILL GET THE PICTURE.
jimcander
I assume you mean Juvie? She's Dutch. Doubt you'll get your pound of flesh out of this one.
b72s2jfk
Juvie yes, my bad. Oh I didn't know that...
richardsaxton
THIS IS THE WAY TO GO. MAKE IT FOR HER WHOLE LIFE TIME AND MAYBE SHE AND HER FRIEND WILL GET THE PICTURE.
DS
THESE YOUNG KIDS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE REAL WORLD IS LIKE AND THEY GET BANNED FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE THEN MAYBE THEY WILL START TO WAKE UP.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH POLICE ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AVAILABLE TO BE BABY SITTERS LIKE THE PARENTS SHOULD HAVE DONE.

THE PARENTS DO NOT SEEM TO CARE WHAT THEIR KIDS DO TODAY.

BUT A LIFE TIME BAN FROM FLYING ANY WHERE FOR BOTH SHOULD MAKE THEIR FRIENDS TO WAKE UP AND TAKE NOTICE THAT IF YOU SCREW UP YOU HAAVE HAD IT FOR LIFE.

Throw the book at her. This is nothing to even recommend what should be done, it should be cut and dry throw the book at her and bring the parents up on charges of some kind.
ForeverJewyl
It's good that they are not taking this matter lightly. At 14 years old she should have known how serious threats like these are, and that pranks were not and are not tolerated
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 2
She likely imagined her friends would laugh and think she was very cool to do this. Maybe they do...we don't know what type person she or her friends are. Heck, maybe her parents don't even care. They're all unknowns.
WhiteKnight77
That she kept trying to pass it off as a joke shows that she does not understand the gravity of what she did. Whether she is Muslim or not does not matter, that she made such a threat does. It is good that she was arrested and hopefully, she will get more than a slap on the wrist. Her and her family should both be put on the No Fly list and then the parents will grasp the gravity of the situation too.
USflyer1
Agreed, Her and her parents on the no-fly list since she is a minor, they all need to suffer the consequences!

Thanks for sharing... Hopefully she gets a good sentence...
sparkie624
Set an example of this little girl.. 14 years old, she may not have been thinking, but she is an old enough to know better... She should be held accountable as should her parents or guardians. A 14 year old to do this even as a joke is an example of poor up bringings.
jimcander
Sorry... this is akin to some kid 50 years ago calling the local tobacconist and asking if they had Prince Edward in a can. Example? She has been. It was on CNN. Accountable? How? Thumbscrews? Waterboard?

The child and her parents will suffer. Enough said.
sparkie624
No... this is not like "Prince Edward in a can" and not even close... This affects a lot of people, and when the company and the FBI get involved that costs money... The Child and Parents need to pay for it, and the kid needs punishment... that is more closely equivalent to someone robbing a bank saying they have a gun that they do not have.
jimcander
If it was a kid in the states I'd be in your court. It's a 14 year old girl from the Netherlands. I agree with what you said above. Disconnect her. What would you like the parents to pay for? Robbing a bank? Hardly.
sparkie624
Hopefully their country will deal with this Harshly...
Derg
I see your concern Sparky but the safety net worked very well here. The kid needs psychiatric help in my opinion. They have to make a spalsh because NL is part of NATO. While not overtly military the Dutch put a lot of effort into NATO security, much more than most of the public know. All round good buddies.
iflyrjs
Well at least she was arrested it was a matter of time her parents turned her in good for them..... but what worries me most is that some people on these forums shouldn't have computers or smart phone at all it really shows their ignorance
jimcander
Or use basic grammar and punctuation.
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 1
Really? Those are the things that worry you two the most about this?
jimcander
About this one situation? Yup.
Derg
I am glad that someone is watching these posts. For anyone reading this who sees an incident like this...maybe on a less well known website forum the CIA has a direct "REPORT INCIDENT" facility. I have used this facility twice in connection with threats to aviation. The security services have limited resources and they rely on information given by the public. Same way you would report an unattended bag at an airport...we have enough to worry about. Act and stay safe.
lindasninja
Seriously she should know better, she is 14 not like 7, hope her parents spat the dummy at her, because everyone realizes how seriously his is taken nowadays, because nasty stuff sometimes happens. The fact she pretended to be ethnic, shows she is old enough to ‘get’ the seriousness of this situation. If I was American Airlines and she flies in the future, I’d make her sit with a security guard and hand over the phone, have no privileges at all sit and read, no electronics at all! Her parents should be taking the phone too, she obviously is too irresponsible to be trusted to have one!!

Sorry Edward, I didn't mean to down vote your post. I'm in total agreement.

I think the whole thing is just so comical. Real terrorists can now keep airlines and law enforcement busy by writing tweets from the safety of their home. No need to actually get any explosives or think about how to bring them through security...

And if they are really good, they'll hijack some 14 year old's computer to send off the tweet to avoid a drone attack on their own house.

A bit of reality-check before going all through the roof might be in order.

At age 14 children are capable of doing just about anything. When is the West going to wake up and realize that there are people who are completely different to us, in their way of thinking, in their actions, in their lack of conscience? We are not able to reason with them. They are programmed from a very early age in the art of intolerance and exacting hate and destruction at a whim. This girl is obviously a danger to many.
sparkie624
Agreed... If she will do this as a joke and get by with it.. What will she do for real...
richardsaxton
THE WHOLE PROBLEM IS THAT PARENTS DO NOT SEEM TO GIVE A GOD DAMN WHEN IT COMES TO TEACHING AND DISAPLINING THEIR CHILDREN.

THAT TEENAGER SHOULD HAVE HER BUTT SPANKED SO HARD SHE COULD NOT SIT FOR TWO OR THREE MONTHS.

THE WHOLE PROBLEM IS PARENTS JUST DO NOT CARE WHAT THEIR CHILDREN DO.

THAT IS THE REASON THIS WORLD IS SO SCREWED UP. NO ONE GIVES A GOD DAMN.

Richard, would you PLEASE stop typing in all caps? It's considered to be the equivalent of yelling, and it's rude to boot.

Strangely enough, your name is in lower case, yet your posts are all caps. What's with that?
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 1
If you spanked a 14 yr old's butt, you'd be considered a sexual pervert. And FYI, the parents aren't always at fault for what their children dream up to do...at that age their friends have far more influence.
Derg
Well said AWAA...

Richard. Don't you realise that putting your text in all capitals is the equivalent of YELLING at everyone. Capitals are should be used for emphasis DAG NABIT.

Well ya know what?...The only thing kids understand is PAIN...Pain by taking everything away from them that makes them happy or pain from a good ass lashing.
Otherwise, these little devils simply sneer and mock the system.
When I was a kid the way things were handled was different. If the cops caught you doing something, they knocked you around, took you to your old man and he bounced you off the walls a few times himself.
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 3
That's known as child abuse, Ken. There are other, better ways to discipline that are just as effective. Probably more. I'd far rather know my children behave because they love and respect me rather than fear me. I would hate to think they went on to raise their children by knocking them around because that's what I did. That's just sad.
devsfan
No...It was termed as child abuse by the "it's ok he/she is just a kid hand wringers".
When it was the exclusive purview of parents to properly discipline their kids without the prying eyes of these "awwww that poor kid people" who at the first raised voice are on the phone to the local family services office.
This one size fits all/ we have to act on every complaint no matter how small garbage, parents are literally afraid to discipline their kids.
It's GARBAGE.
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 2
That's a very narrow viewpoint.
devsfan
You think so? Go outside your circle and ask around.
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 2
You act like it's a new concept. It's a topic that's been discussed before. It isn't new. And don't presume to know anything about my supposed "circle." You're being very rude, and there's no call for it. Why can't you simply discuss something with someone that has different opinions than you without being a clod?
devsfan
First..I did not cal you any names.
So let's try it this way. By all means, please describe your "more effective methods of discipline"...
AWAAlum
AWAAlum 2
First, I didn't say you called me any names. You implied my knowledge on the subject is limited. For gosh sakes, you don't even know when you're being rude. I'm sorry you know no other means of disciplining a child other than knocking it about. That truly speaks volumes. That being said, I think we've been off thread quite long enough, and likely driving other members mad. Why don't we just agree I'm right and you're wrong and be finished with it. That seems fair to me.
devsfan
ken young -1
I neither stated not implied anything regarding your knowledge. You referred to me as a "clod"
"Rude"? A term so vague so as to be used in any situation where one is frustrated that they cannot get another to comply with their point of view.
You referred to me as rude because you apparently are used to having the final say.
Now, this amusing. You have an opinion regarding the measure of discipline of children. I have my opinion. And here's the funny stuff. You insist you are correct and my opinion is incorrect. Ok, genius, explain to me how one's opinion can be "wrong".....Still waiting for your version of the "accepted methods of discipline"...
Or you can just be a quitter and go hide in your basement.

Go to your local Barnes & Noble - I'm sure you'll be able to brush up on your parenting skills. And now, yes, I suppose you would say I'm a quitter - we're on our way to meet some friends for dinner. Thank goodness, since I was beginning to get hugely bored with this entire matter. (By the way, there's absolutely nothing vague about the word rude.) Thanks for the laughs.

Run, don't walk, to your nearest police station to get yourself registered as a pedophile. Don't forget to tell your wife so she can take out a restraining order on your children's behalf.

Well I and plenty others care. I agree there are some problems we need to clear up and most of them are caused by corrupt politicians at the very top. Many of us are unscrewing these people. We want them out of office.

Yet another juvenile racist comment. The CIA has plenty to do with non muslims outfits. In fact the CIA has abunch of Muslims on the payroll..how else can they understand the culture. The CIA does not murder people. They collect them and take them back to the USA. The FBI does not handle overseas offences unless there is a crime scene.

Teen's Bomb Threat to American Airlines Sets Off Torrent of Copy-Cat Tweets
