Watch Westlake Lacrosse Player and Convicted Line Cutter be Publicly Humiliated on Southwest Flight

Mac Breedlove is a junior at Westlake High School. He plays lacrosse. He skips in line while boarding Southwest Airlines flights with his lacrosse teams. And we wouldn't know any of this if Breedlove didn't have such awesome lacrosse coaches.

Said coaches, Evan Welchel and Kenny Pailes, found out about Breedlove's line skipping and decided what he needed was a healthy dose of public humiliation. They forced Breedlove to write an apology, then deliver it to a packed flight over Southwest's PA system. Someone caught it on video and posted it to YouTube, as you can see above.

"During the boarding process I took advantage of this airline's kindness," he read. "That is not how my coaches, teammates, or parents expect me to behave."

Hat tip to Texas Monthly for noting Breedlove's apology,earlier today, though ABC News, CBS News, and the Drudge Report have mentioned it as well.

These right-wingers would bring back stocks and dunking if they could get away with it.

Westlake - is this a typical spoiled,  rich, entiltled kid from an affluent suburb who thinks everyone should cater to him?  Must be some great parenting going on with him.

Truly America's airline. Give us your fat people, your sluttily dressed women, and even your unruly teens that think they're kick ass, we'll give them all a hard time. Oh, and better than that(because I can put up with all of the above) your bags fly free!!!!

I applaud the coaches. The only way to stop rude behavior is to confront it and teach the person that being rude has negative consequences.

No kidding... perhaps he should have spent his summer in remedial English classes, or perhaps with a reading tutor rather than playing lacrosse

I'm sure his parents will sue the coaches and the airline for this horrible attack upon their son.

In sports, coaches typically stress discipline and teamwork. The reinforcement of those values, while rarely punished through the use of stocks and dunking, may still seem somewhat draconian to people that tend to discount those values. As for cutting in line, I typically cut in front of the cutter, and invite the folks behind the offender to do the same. Call it a right wing reaction. I call it fair.

You gotta be kidding me. Cutting in line by a teenager so he could sit with his friends =  spoiled kid with negligent parents?  I'm guessing you have no kids. Enjoy your bitter life.
