Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

He seems like a scapegoat to me too. Unfortunately, they have every right to fire him.

And yeah, this could happen to anyone. I actually did something similar though not as bad. Was working at the airport and accidentally sent off a hidden code saying I had been kidnapped by terrorists. I'll not go into specifics since I don't want to tip off actual terrorists but it had happened cause I didn't fully listen during my training.

Wasn't something that gets out to the public though so didn't get fired. Actually, I got a standing ovation from my entire department of like 20 people right when I entered the building (laughing at my error). Guess airport security checked in with them during their search to find me and the terrorists. Must say, they tracked me down quite quickly so was impressed with security.
