I just found out some of the most disturbing news from my mother today. I found out my cousin got a job refueling airplanes at O'Hara air field. Now the reason why this scares my is that the kid is only a year older then my brother and one of the first things comes in mind is last time he spent the night when I was 16 years old he filled a rubber ball full of Gas then light it and started kicking it at people. The next thing is when we had to go to my grandparents 50 wedding anniversary my wife (Just my girlfriend at the time.) Was wearing a silk dress and he was flicking matches at her to try and light he dress on fire. I know he was on community service for about 3 to 4 years for having road flares taped to an alarm clock in his school locker. I know he has stolen equipment from the fire department that is where he did his community service . He has been caught for under age drinking , With assault on an officer that he got off with . I guess he was at a party and he open the door with a drink in his hand and it was the PD he threw the glass or bottle at the officer and hit him in the face then ran. He got off with it because his grandfather use to be the chief of the PD around there. He also has many other charges from car theft , braking and entering ,assault and arson. Ok now you know a little about this kid he is not 19 years and refueling airplanes at the busiest airport in the world. They did a back ground check and nothing came up and because he was under age when he did the bomb threat it's not on his record. Now tell me how F-cked up it that. Makes me feel safe to fly .

this individual obviousely shows a propencity for arson, and violence. he should be very well guarded in how he behaves at work. and i agree that this is not the type of employment he should have. but look on the bright side, when he torches an aircraft he will go to jail this time.

Uh... I'm not sure the families of the people on said torched aircraft would agree that his finally going to jail is a "bright side".

Just me being nitpicky.. O'Hare is no longer the busiest airport in the world, though it is still the largest. Which one is busiest? Atlanta Hartsfield.

Maybe an anonymous letter to his employer might be appropriate. Tell them he's Muslim too and then maybe they'll do something about it.
