captivated by shackles

“This is better than being at the zoo,” I told the pilot while peeping out the baggage door, “Ooooh look there’s a second one.”
“It’s divine justice that they are getting on a little flyer. I just can’t believe they charter a plane to haul these guys off,” the pilot responded from the cabin of the Gulfstream. 
Standing up and walking to a more civilized location I yanked my head out of the obvious sightseeing hole and sat down on the bench, “Now we know how they are transported.”
Cutting me off the pilot said, “and it’s better than flying them commercial.”
The men were shackled wrist to wrist and ankle to ankle walking like ducks to the plane at Sugarland Airport. I sat captivated like a young boy watching porn for the first time.  After all, i had already embarrassed myself while walking to the bathroom, smiled at one of them then noticed the handcuffs and the U.S. Marshall sitting next to him.
The day got better with the fire alarm going off in the hotel at 2:30 am.  The other pilot and I both opened our hotel doors, saw each other and said, “I’m going back to bed.”
