Police have identified the man who broadcast anti-gay death threats over the Fort Lauderdale International airport intercom as Jethro Monestime, 23, a skycap for Superior Aircraft Services. The Broward County sheriff’s department has referred the case to the state to see if criminal charges are applicable. Monestime’s job is not under the jurisdiction of the airport authority and his employers would not comment on his employment. The Mayor of Broward County issued a formal apology on behalf of the county, who operates the airport.
A dumbass move, but you have to laugh at his name being Jethro. No offense to any Jethros that read JMG!
UPDATE: The CEO of Superior Aircraft Services personally called the gay couple who heard the announcement to apologize and let them know that Jethro had been terminated. Excellent.
