Alleged ‘purple hash’ smoker forces Southwest flight to land

“Purple Haze” and “Purple Rain” are associated with good times.

Purple drank and purple hash? Not so much.

A man who admitted smoking “purple hash,” which I assume is synthetic or laced marijuana,  misbehaved so badly aboard a Southwest Airlines flight the jet had to make an emergency landing in Portland Tuesday.

The Oregonian’s lively writeup says the “brouhaha,” a word that contains “ha-ha” but ain’t funny, began when passenger Sheron Lamar Rogers told the flight crew he had a first-class ticket.

Southwest, of course, is famous for cheap flights and NOT having first-class seats on any of its planes.

Once aboard the Seattle-to-Sacramento flight, the 26-year-old refused to stow his luggage, telling the flight crew “I do what I want,” and then proceeded to do just that, according to federal court documents cited by The Oregonian.

In his seat, he repeatedly pressed the “call” button. A flight attendant asked him if he had an emergency and he said “Yes, I need a [bleeping] drink!”

For some reason, the plane took off with this jackburro still aboard.

In flight, the man repeatedly flashed gang signs at other passengers, screamed about Jesus and demanded booze.

After demanding three glasses of wine and being told he could only have one, Rogers told the airline waitress “Get the [bleep] out of my face” and “Jesus loves you.”

He then demanded to speak to the pilot.

Flight attendants secretly asked other passengers to help restrain Rogers if he became violent. I hope those people get special discounts on future flights, or at least judo training coupons.

One flight attendant boiled a pot of water to use as a weapon if the “brouhaha” got real.

When taken into custody, Rogers told federal agents he had smoked “purple hash” but did not feel high. He said the gang signs were “for Jesus” and the passengers that fled his seating area did so because they don’t like black people.

Once again, the secret to being a bad human is always finding a way to blame others for your actions.

The Flight Attendent Boiled Hot Water to use as a weapon? She needs to be FIRED! Seems to me Southwest Airlines seriously needs to have a talk with their Flight Attendents on this issue as to what is acceptable use as a weapon. What if there is a Baby or young child close by or a Senior Citizen or GOB forbid a Beautiful Woman and here comes the Boiling Hot Water?….She/He was being just as Crazy as the dope smoking Perp. Talk about a Lawsuit for Southwest Airlines and the thrower of the Boiling Water? Being SKERRED will make Goobers do almost anything but the smart thing. Would not be surprised if she was packing Heat too..and about to stand her ground!

This Problem can easily be solved in one simple step. Have everyone video tapped being asked if you are intoxicated or on illegal drugs and under the influence. If in fact it turns out they are..then an extra penalty can be charged and made under the Perjury of Law. A Few Stiff sentences of being Drunk or High will be enough to deter all of the rest and maybe make others consider a Later flight or until they are sober and of sound mind. This would Never happen in Isreal…No WAY!

I agree with Bernie31.

This poor misunderstood individual was targeted by a bunch of skeered crackers who can’t stand the sight of a successful man of color.

Hopefully, he will sue SWA for millions for violating his civil rights.

“stand her ground!” Really?…. if your trying to be funny, don’t give up your day job if not, then you need to learn the laws of places like florida Stand your ground law in florida is for keeping law abiding citizens safe from unreasonable and unavoidable harm or death. but tools like you like to make sarcastic jokes out of tragedies stemming from misinterpretation of laws. What a tool! you belong in a shed not in a news forum.

@Ray

The Florida “Stand Your Ground” law and those of other states are unnecessary. Laws already exists that protects an individual’s right to self-defense. The “Stand Your Ground” law is just a right given to people so they can shoot those they are afraid of, whether real or imagined. You shouldn’t get a “kill” pass when you are wrong with your fears and perceived danger.

To Bernie31

What if he had a weapon? Why are you blaming the flight attendant. Flight attendants first priority is the safety of passengers. I support the decsion she made. And why is it always the flight attendants/airlines fault? No one is taking responsibilities for their actions.

Bob @ 3:13 pm – I am in no way making an excuse for this Perp’s behavior…Be he Black or white its uncalled for and unacceptable. But to have an airline employee throw a POT of HOT BOILING water in a closed and confined space on innocent Passengers?. Think about it! there will be 2nd and 3rd degree Facial and scalp burns ALL around. ARe you that DENSE not to envision such a sight? extremely Pot of HOT water…Have you ever been burned before? In the Face? someone could easily be blinded and maimed for LIFE.
For what? some drugged out idiot….?
Come on People USE your Head….Yu could burned very badly and it maybe as long as an Hour before the plane could land and you have many multiple Burn Victims while some DIZZY FLIGHT ATTENDENT is Crying saying she is SORRY! while she is unaffected. Her crying, I was afraid of HIM…..IS NO EXCUSE AND will only make matters worse than they are. Even the spraying of MACE or tear gas in a confined area could create a whole host of unintended issues. The Key to success here is to prevent such individuals from getting on the Plane from the start…wether they are drugged out or DRUNK!

This would be an INJURY LAWYERS wet Dream…..MIILIONS would be paid out and rightfully so!

Unknown or unaware of many of you have no Problem of throwing Hot water on another Human Being is that one of thse Human Beings You really do not consider HUMAN. This is a serious problem the average white American Citizen has in the race area. Somehow and someway in ALL of your Brains, you think we (Black People) as a Race of People are Not fully Human like you. So that is why Slavery existed as long as it did. Why Police Brutality aginst people of color is accepted and tolerable. The same reason why you ALL agree with the stand your ground shooters when the the vicitim is a person of color. If this was a WHITE Person you would be OUTRAGED at such a an action would even be considered… After ALL that white person is a Human Being…not like the dark skinned person before you who friightens YOU to your very core. Do anything you must to stop the BEAST is your thinking. You see we know you better than you know yourselves.
Uh…huh.

A little investigative journalism by the author would have unearthed the fact that hash is not synthetic marijuana. It is concentrated resin from the marijuana. Contains THC, just like bud, but in higher concentration.
