Every time I read stories about folks being held hostage on airplanes--not by terrorists, mind you, but by airlines--I wonder to myself how I'd do in such a situation. I honestly think that I would not do well, and that I would get into serious legal trouble.
Here's why. If I were a POW or a hostage held by the Taliban--I'd sorta know why I was there. I wouldn't like it, but I would recognize (mostly by the guns held to my head) the authority of those who had taken me and the likely consequences of my resistance.
But put into a situation like the one in the link? Hell no. I'd see no authority, and I'd rather take my chances in court after being arrested and taken off the plane than sit there and have basic rights abridged.
What do you think?
