At around 1:50 a.m. on Sunday, American Airlines workers said they found 28-year-old Ram Porat aboard an aircraft. When police arrived and asked Porat what he was doing on the plane unauthorized, he said “I own the world,” according to a police affidavit. Porat was charged with an airport security violation, vandalism and trespassing after scaling a fence and accessing a plane in a restricted area. He bonded out of jail for $14,000 Sunday, according to records online. “It was something I wanted to do and an obstacle I wanted to overcome,” Porat told police, according to the affidavit. Police arrested Porat last week on DUI and drug charges after allegedly finding 15.7 grams of marijuana in his car during a traffic stop. A phone number listed for Porat was disconnected. Airport officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Forget BLACK MAN.......what

Forget BLACK MAN.......what if this dude had been an American of Arab descent. Would he still be walking around? Would the coverage had been as limited as it is?
Why isn't this on CNN as a breach of Homeland Security? Would everyone be joking around like this if the guy had been Muslim? Hmmmmmmm............

What an idiot...

What an idiot...

cyndietodd, I know, right.

Now, if he as a black man, he probably would have been shot and killed by cops as soon as they found him on the plane.

Wait - this guy was arrested

Wait - this guy was arrested lat week on drug charges and DUI, released, arrested for this stunt and, again, released? Is someone not paying attention here?

So let me get this straight.

So let me get this straight. The a-holes at the Airport Authority and Airport Police, who will harass you for sitting too close to a fence on public property with a three year old, watching planes take off... ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN?!?

Not only do they forget they work for the taxpayers when we dare use their public land, but they can't secure it when it REALLY matters, INSIDE the perimeter?

Wow.

Allow me to remind all of

Allow me to remind all of the famous, (and true) comedy line, "You can't fix stupid."

He's actually kind of cute.

He's actually kind of cute. All he needs is some rehab, a job, and a shopping spree at Neiman Marcus. I could turn his life around.

OH NO!!!! That poor baby.

OH NO!!!! That poor baby. Arrested for boarding his own plane.

Stupidity is the next

Stupidity is the next obstacle Ram might want to overcome.

If he does own the world, it

If he does own the world, it wouldn't be trespassing. Slippery slope, Metro!!
