Airport bomb hoaxer is shot dead by police; MENTALLY ILL VICTIM COMMITTED 'SUICIDE BY COP', SAYS EXPERT.

The Evening Standard (London, England); 12/8/2005


A PASSENGER shot and killed by US air marshals after claiming he had a bomb in his bag was mentally ill, witnesses said today.

Federal officials said Rigoberto Alpizar, a 44-year-old from Florida, was shot as he ran off a plane at Miami airport yesterday.

It later emerged he was not carrying any explosives.

Today one security expert said he believed Mr Alpizar had committed "suicide by cop" - forcing the authorities into a situation where they had to shoot him. It was the first time a plane passenger has been shot by air marshals since they were given extra powers after the September 11 attacks.

Mr Alpizar, an American citizen born in Ecuador, and his wife Anne were on American Airlines Flight 924, a Boeing 757 bound for Orlando. They had just arrived on a flight from Quito in Ecuador.

Passenger Mary Gardner told how she heard his wife scream: "My husband, my husband," saying he had bipolar disorder and needed medication. "Her husband-ran through the aisle frantically. She ran after him and all of a sudden there were four or five shots," said Ms Gardner.

A Department of Homeland Security spokesman defended the decision to shoot Mr Alpizar after he refused to drop his bag.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode

Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.

Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.

However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
