Alcoholism is a disease; I get it. But, there are drunks and there are stupid, belligerent drunks. Aldon seems to be the latter. This young man needs consequences beyond another stint in rehab, like an extended suspension, and maybe even a reflection in his next contract in case of future regressions. What he doesn't need is people making excuses for him!
Not sure the latest incident was alcohol related.
Aldon is an idiot for what he did at LAX, but it's actually pretty common. People that are traveling are often rushed, anxious, and tired. I've seen a 75 year old white woman do the same thing Aldon did, and get detained. It's not smart, but it's not felony gun charges or DUI. We don't even know what he said. I mean, if the TSA stops you for secondary screening and you reply, "Is that necessary? It's not like I have a bomb
or something" then all the TSA hears is "bomb" and you're detained. They are trained to arrest first and ask questions later because no one wants to be the person responsible for actually letting a guy on a plane with a bomb.
