From what I understand

he was already restrained. So the complete lack of need for a SWAT raid would have risked someone concluding the plane raid was being done by illegal terrorists (as opposed to the legal ones pictured)and the guy's flip-out was part of the plan to divert the plane. Are they trying to get someone to react that way? Because it's inevitable.

What are they going to do if I don't put my head down? Shoot me? I guess they'd just say I was reaching for something, then frame me for some imaginary plot.
