VENT: Did the terrorists on 9/11 really hi-jack a plane with a freakin box cutter?

or a pocket knife

this just clicked because i was young when this happened so i didnt pay attention to any details

and 10 ppl couldn't rally together and stop that

Im kind of in shock since ppl have been thru worse
ppl have been at gunpoint and fought thru it, let alone 3 ppl with a box cutter took over a whole plane?

i dont late i know
may everyone rest in peace

but a box cutter or similar, i, like many others, have been 1on1 with assholes on the street, 100+ ppl and 3 box cutters tho

  • they were told not to stop it, that everything was under control. back then we considered that terrorists could be bargained with. would you risk your life on that plane just to possibly die when you thought everything might be ok?

  • The first 3 planes, the passengers thought is was only a hijacking. No one imagined the terrorists were going to fly the planes into buildings, so people complied, thinking they would be let free eventually. The held the box cutters to the flight attendant's neck, which was enough to keep the people from attacking them.

    The fourth plane was delayed, and the passengers received cell phone calls telling them about the other planes. The passengers attacked and the plane went down in a field and killed everyone.
