Why the FBI? This is just beyond belief. I think we should get the CIA involved (it was, after all, outside the US borders), the Secret Service (because all of this is having a deleterious effect on the Presidents health), the EPA (because all the hot air being spouted over this is damaging the environment), the Screen Actors Guild (because I want to hear what Alec Baldwin has to say about all of this) and Geraldo (I can wait).

I was also wondering why the FBI and not the local police.

Burappi always seemed so calm in his movies not the violent type at all.

flying with 1 kid is a chore, I can certainly see a guy losing it with 6.

It probably dawned on the poor bastard at 39000 feet he married a nutcase who has been collecting children like stray kittens and couldn't take it anymore

Marriage life seems very short in America. Probably they wouldn't want longer marriage life.

Somehow I think the "chore" aspect would be greatly lessened when the flying is being done in a private plane with nannies and other staff in attendance. Not that I have personal experience with that ;-)

no doubt, but in a private plane you're still stuck there with 6 kids screaming in your ear..

What on EARTH has this got to do with the FBI?

Don't they have better things to do than to get mixed up with sticky divorce cases?

FBI because the crime happened in the air, on the ground, also e-mails are in FBI territory.

I thought it was because the plane flew over more than one state. But perhaps airspace in general warrants the FBI.

Brad Pitt is a child abuser? Sorry, but I refuse to believe this until solid evience is produced. I hope the poor guys' reputation isn't trashed due to spite.

Good Bad RecklessSep. 23, 2016 - 04:11PM JST Guess the feds have jurisdiction over air space,,,

Then it should be FAMS jurisdiction (Federal Air Marshal Service under DHS and TSA), not the FBI.

Right now, Child abuse investigation. When hijacking etc occurs, many others appear wiki their equipment and bring you to safety,

Several news sites reported a witness saying Brad "shouted" at the 15-year-old Maddox. Seriously, if shouting at a boy aged 15 becomes a reason for criminal investigation... From my experience with teenagers I remember they can give you plenty of reasons for shouting at them.

I think 18 and under is minor in USA but I am not sure on the air that is FBI territory.

I think 18 and under is minor in USA but I am not sure on the air that is FBI territory.

18 is considered legal adult age in the US (excluding drinking in some states). 17 and under is still considered a minor.

And I'd gather that the FBI would only get involved if an incident occurred over multiple state lines.

Still this sounds like a pretty stupid situation for them to "have" to get involved in.
