On Saturday night, a Christian terrorist who threatened to kill everyone on a plane “in the name of Jesus” was quickly subdued (by two men, including one who was allegedly a cop), then arrested after the Alaska Airlines flight made an emergency stop. The flight from Seattle to Chicago returned to Washington about 20 minutes after takeoff.

I have a hard time understanding how a man threatening violence somehow has the decency to wear a mask… but he was arrested without incident upon landing.
Michael Ney Berry, 30, of Kirkland, was being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond at the King County jail, where he was charged with felony assaults.
Video of the incident shows the man yelling, “I’m going to kill everybody on this plane. Die in the name of Jesus!”
There’s no word yet on what his motivation was or whether he suffered from any mental illness. Everyone on the flight was thankfully okay (minus the scare) and put on the next flight to Chicago.
