So were the flying Imams begging to be discriminated against à la NBC's Nascar trolling? Maybe.
Three of the men asked for seat-belt extenders, although two flight attendants told police the men were not oversized. One flight attendant told police she "found this unsettling, as crew knew about the six [passengers] on board and where they were sitting." Rather than attach the extensions, the men placed the straps and buckles on the cabin floor, the flight attendant said.That, plus stationing themselves in pairs at every entry/exit of the plane. Plus being abnormally loud with their "prayers". Sure they wanted a response. I'm betting that the best possible outcome in their minds would have been a tasering, preferably caught on tape. I agree, except for the caught on tape part.
"Understandably, the imams felt profiled, humiliated, and discriminated against by their treatment,"Well, maybe a little, not nearly enough, but it's a start.
