Doctor violently dragged off overbooked airplaneWatch
If they're overbooked obviously they should take him out of the plane
Police just doing their job and the doctor is resisting expulsion.
I'm sure the lawyers are licking their lips...
I believe it is the violence with which they go about it. They are acting like bouncers.
Why were they allowed to board, anyway? If they are overbooked, why not turn passengers away before boarding?
I am disappointed also that the black guy saw the injustice but proceeded to violently approach him anyway. Talk about a lack of POC solidarity.
It is United's negligence that resulted in them being overbooked, this man paid for his ticket and had a right to be on that flight. The way he was removed was sickening.
Once United realised they had ed up and overbooked they asked for someone to volunteer to change flights, no one did, the victim couldn't because he was a doctor and was flying to perform surgery.
They then arbitrarily decided that he would be kicked off the flight regardless, and he was violently lifted from his seat, knocked unconscious (he is limp and you can see blood under his lip) and dragged along the cabin floor off the plane.
We can take solace in the fact that United 'played themselves'; instead of offering some other passengers suitably enticing fees to voluntarily change flights, they are now suffering a damaging PR crisis and will have a huge lawsuit to settle with the victim. Sweet sweet justice!
