Steven Slater, American Hero

Steven Slater quit his job as a jetBlue flight attendant today—by activating the plane’s emergency slide and ditching the plane on the runway.

He’d been fighting with a passenger and announced “”To the passenger who called me a m—-f—er, f—- you. I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it” over the intercom before deplaning. Slater was held in jail overnight after a judge set his bail at $2500. FREE STEVEN.
