FINDING A MISSING PLANE? LAW ENFORCEMENT’S ROLE SIMILAR TO THAT OF FINDING A MISSING PERSON
ABC News Crime & Terrorism Analyst in Washington DC, Brad Garrett, spoke with AM 820 News anchor, Roger P. Schulman, this morning abbout the missing Malaysian jetliner. As flight experts and the military use technology and surveillance to find the plane, law enforcement will work with what they have, the passengers and crew of the Boeing 777. Investigators are examining the background of the 227 passengers as well as 12 crew members. There may not be obvious links initially but for example did anyone on board have the training to take over a plan or have software that could possibly jam the plane’s electronics? Who did each passenger/crew communicate with in the hours before takeoff? Are there any passengers/crew that have mental health issues similar to previous situations where violent acts have killed many people. Brad will discuss what investigators are desperately trying to do to find flight 370.
