    Default Loud cell-phone talker removed from quiet car by police

    As an example, they shoud beat this woman to within an inch of her life on national TV and tell everyone that is the fate of violating the rules. Can you imagine the havoc if they let the masses have cell phones on planes?

    A woman who was escorted off an Amtrak train by police this weekend after she allegedly refused to stop talking loudly on her cell-phone has the Internet cheering her fate.

    Civilians and quiet-car champions are supporting her ejection for violating policy at high volume during the 16-hour journey. It doesn't help her cause that she became belligerent when confronted about it by one of her fellow passengers.


    KOMO News reports that Lakeysha Beard says she felt "disrespected" by the incident, though passengers said it was Beard who was being rude by refusing to stop yapping while sitting in one of the train's designated quiet cars. She had not stopped talking since the train pulled out of Oakland, California, 16 hours before it reached Salem, Oregon, when a passenger confronted her about the talking. That's when Beard got "aggressive," KATU reports, and conductors stopped the train so that police could remove her and charge her with disorderly conduct.

    While I don't agree with Sarge's solution, I am happy she has been publicly humiliated. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people think the world revolves around them, and everyone else should just have to deal with them. People who talk in movies fall into this category.

    We're all stars in our own movies. Oblivious to the goings on around us. I'm sure she'll file a lawsuit because her poor wittle feewings got hurt.

    A few years ago I was at a movie listening to this woman on her cell phone talk loudly through the trailers. The trailers ended and as the opening scene of the movie we all paid to see began she showed no signs of ceasing so in a loud voice I demanded she get off her phone. She got smart with me, but quickly refrained when she heard the entire section of the theatre erupt in cheerful applause. Then as she left, she told the person on the other end to hold on a second and called me a cracker.

    On the Metro coming back form DC recently, it was a young man on the train listening to music on his phone w/out ear phones. Of course the music was ripe with profanities.

    It has gotten out of control. I found myself on the phone in a grocery store one time thinking that I had become one of them so I have begun to leave my phone in my vehicle when I go places like the grocery store or the like, any place where I can be without the damn thing for an hour at a time.
