Crazy experience at JFK-I literally felt THE FEAR. And where's ya'll security?!?

So on the way back from upstate NY we had to come through to catch our flight to London from JFK. We had a major delay and they put us on a morning flight. Around midnight we headed to the BA terminal, it was pretty dead as first flight check in opened 4:

    So on the way back from upstate NY we had to come through to catch our flight to London from JFK. We had a major delay and they put us on a morning flight. Around midnight we headed to the BA terminal, it was pretty dead as first flight check in opened 4:30.

    I hear bawling and shouting, look behind me and this 6ft black guy is swaggering in screaming about Trump, my auto response is to turn around and look-of course he zones in on my bf and I. My bf telling me walk ahead and DO NOT look at him. Meanwhile he's hollering "you think its you white boy that put Trump in presidency, no it was me. You better get your queen and get the F outta here." Queen huh, I could take that?! Or so I thought lol. He gets closer and this guys eye are popping out his damn head and he is foaming at the treetrunking mouth. Its like the lights were on but nobody was home, literally felt like prey for an animal. Not to mention all this gun violence you can imagine exactly what was going through my mind.

    Anyway, everything turned out fine. Nobody got attacked but it could of turned out worse. We later found out he was on crack. But this lead me to thinking, in US and in this day in age WHY WAS THERE NO POLICE OR ARMED GUARDS AT A trtrkING AIRPORT?! The security guy was literally an unarmed wee old Jamaican dude on his own, that was no where to be seen at the time this ruckus was going on.

    Although I don't like guns as they are not a part of the society I grew up in and were never needed, in UK i'm glad to say at airports we have armed police.

    Anyone ever felt the fear? What was happening? Do you ever feel it is brought on by looking the aggressor in the eye? It's not something I do intentionally, but I think it is best to be treating such loonballs like theyre an animal and not make eye contact from now on.

    Are there not any crazy crackheads in Europe? Surely that can't be just an American thing.

    Foaming at the mouth? That seems overly dramatic.

    I'm sure there is. None that i've ever been exposed to. I'm sure they all hide in crack dens though or some butter and rarely come out and antagonise folk. The functioning ones i've seen outside are mainly zombies and are getting some meds from the chemist to be weaned off drugs.

    Apparently its a man with mental health issues. It happens.

    The nation has issues...this isn't a surprise.

    The city, in particular, has lapses in its medical care for the most at risk.

    The last thing that NYC needs is more armed guards/police/Gendarmerie even with the situation you had. We need services to address the things that caused his situation...not police.

    Could be. We only heard from the staff that he was on crack and he had been there the night before also bawling and threatening people. We have armed security at such places because of the mass volume of bodies passing through. I guess it just makes sense to me.

    Never forget that the U.S. is the land of guns. Even if it doesn't seem like it trust when I say the security apparatus at most federal and state owned facilities in NYC is present and there in mass...the main problem has been how those law enforcement personnel handle emotionally and mentally disturbed folks...especially after they have been taken into custody.

    I'm not sure how or why the physical color of the man, who seems to also be a crackhead, is in the post, but jfk seems like a breeze.

    Lol at least you are travelling through a place where you and others around you are able to understand each other to a good degree and you are not judged for being the color you are.. There are places that dislike seeing foreigners in their airports to the point of misleading information, unwarranted frisking, to actually treetrunking up their flights- and these are people who work for the airports.


    Lol, the fact I mentioned it was because he was shouting at my bf-due to being white that it was him (black guy) that actually put Trump in his current place. Not meaning to rustle any sensitive feathers around here when it comes to colour. I could care less myself what colour a person which is why I talk about it with ease. Shaming and sensitivity towards open dialogue will never lead to overcoming. It will go on and on. But again, racism isn't something i've grown up with so maybe i'm ignorant towards how such a big problem it is in the world and it should be shied away from.

    Drugs seem to be the bigger problem from what I've seen- no singular race or color immune. So a person can very easily become... Just a crackhead.

    True. Ok maybe I am too descriptive. Lets settle for that. I tell it like I seen it. There is no racial malice in my description of the dude I should have inserted. Apologies.
