Southwest employee arrested for child vouyerism at work

Tue Jul 24, 2018 5:29 pm

This is quite disgusting and not a reflection on an airline but on a disturbed employee.

interesting that it is reported in the UK but I have not seen anything in the US media. I guess a Kardashian was not involved so the media doesn't find it interesting. Or Southwest does an incredible job of containing the press---

It's disgusting either way but there seems to be some sensationalism tying it to children. The article says the bathroom is sometimes used by children by themselves. Doesn't this happen at many bathrooms?

It's a sick crime regardless.

Disgusting but I fail to see what this has to do with Southwest other than him being employed by them. They also make a point to blast Disney's name when cast members get caught in child sex stings in Florida but has nothing to do with them except for employment.

Do the Disney employees do this while working? I see that as a major difference. This guy was doing it on Southwest time wearing a Southwest uniform. I would hope that Goofy and Minnie in Orlando were not doing it while wearing their costumes.

Every company has miscreant employees in their ranks. The big difference is if this was the airline with the globe on the tail the outrage would all be targeted at the corporation and not the employee.

Yes they do an absolutely amazing job. It always astounds me how well they tend to keep the bad press down.

I don’t think there’s really anything that can be said for this man except that he is disgusting, unacceptable, and deserves to be punished to the full extent of the law.

I just saw some coverage in the Seattle news but very little in the way of information. Perhaps the perv will even keep his job at Southwest-whatever the job was. His occupation at Southwest was not released that I saw. I would guess a gate agent but perhaps a fligh attendant?

If only you'd be able to extend such proper and just logic to other airlines...

EXACTLY! And there would be folks on here calling for tens of thousands to be fired because that airline "should have done their research better" on hiring the employee.

I'm all for folks having opinions (makes one interesting) but equally applied logic helps to make conversations cogent and fair.

So if you put a camera in a bathroom that kids “sometimes use” you get arrested and have to stay in jail unless you can come up with 90k bail...BUT if you french kiss a kid that doesn’t want to be kissed, grab her thigh, and cause an entire airplane of people to divert to SEA while trying to get to ANC...you get to continue on to your destination after posting $1,000 bail. WHAT THE HELL.

I'm not defending either of the accused, but regarding the bail I think I can see the logic. The bathroom cam guys abused his access and could have peeped on dozens if not hundred's of people, including children.
The flight guy was allegedly drunk and it might have been a one time thing (personally, I doubt it).
I could see the judge accepting the argument that the bathroom guy was systematic/methodical about it, and truly intending to do what he did, while the flight guy might have 'had one too many' and did something stupid. Also, it might not be the same judge setting the bail.

Again, not excusing either sets of actions/behavior.

I don't understand the point of all those "F/A doing bad stuff" threads.

It just looks like child fight between american carriers and their fanboys trying to discredit the other one.

If it is not worth discussing, you certainly do not have to post anything. We do need to be aware of people with bad behavior in all occupations. Just because they have a uniform, or have a position of authority, does not mean that they are trustworthy or honorable.

Obviously you know nothing about Disney yet felt the need to make a statement that can be shredded in minutes (this is not the place haha). I'm not tying WN to Disney cause Disney and pedo's go hand in hand!...I work in Hollywood, its well known.

But if someone works for a high profile company like Southwest then of course they will be linked in the media. Did WN miss something during employment checks. How was this discovered. The US government and others are filled with pedophiles (proven fact) that the media ignores for obvious reasons, and airlines ALL industries have their fair share.

I know this is not something people want to hear (especially aviation nerds) but its true, its sad, I doubt Southwest will be effected by this in the slightest, unless there is a pedo ring found to be operating at WN then the conversation changes.

Children need to be protected. Period!

Maybe CNN is so obsessed with President Trump that other news is overlooked. If it was a UA employee maybe it would be a US news headline as UA in my opinion is not liked too much in the US national media and is treated very unfairly and inequitable.

I cannot say how true that statement is in my country. I don't often rely on the media; usually this forum and twitter.
To me, it will always be:
- Bombardier CSeries
- Airbus A321neoLR and A321neoXLR
- EMBRACER ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, and ERJ-195
- MITSUBUSHI MRJ

I just did a flight on Southwest and a passenger talked loud out, that she is never ever flying Southwest Airlines with her children again, because due to the free seat allocation onboard only pervert and paedophile monsters would choose Southwest as they can sit next to her babies and start molesting them during the flight... Creepy.

She'll enjoy paying all the upgrade fees on American in order to travel together in adjacent seats.
