      Absolutely anything that happened outside of the events on that plane are completely irrelevant to the issue at hand. The only thing that matters is United issued him a ticket, then boarded him on the plane, and then brought in the Brute Squad to knock him out and drag him from the plane unconscious.


      FYI, United (UAL) has 314.6 million shares outstanding. As of this post, UAL is trading at $68.487/share. The share price just before this video was released was $72.10. UAL has lost $821,106,000 in market cap since Monday.

          What is your point...other than to smear someone in your quest to defend (backhandedly) United? This is reminiscent of your defending (while trying to make us all believe you weren't) a certain Presidential candidate.

              Nah. Nothing that I can say or do that can smear this guy more than he's already smeared himself.

              Point of the post was more of a jab at some posters around here. I always think it's amusing to see the reaction when someone falls all over themselves defending someone they don't know, or know nothing about, and then they learn the person turns out to be a complete turd. Judging by the posts, seems to have worked.
              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              I really don't understand your point. It shouldn't matter if the guy is the next Bernie Madoff or the next candidate for Pope. Only the actions taken on the plane between the company's representative, the federal officials, and the passenger are all that matter. This really is the perfect case of a business school's lesson that happens within a vacuum.

                              1) Ticket purchased
                              2) boarding pass issued
                              3) ticketholder boards plane
                              4) request a volunteer to get off the plane in order to make life/planning easier for an employee.
                              5) force an unwilling ticketholder off the plane when not enough volunteers step forward
                              6) Have a paying customer chosen at random arrested because he has an inflexible calendar of his own at the destination and wants to stay on the flight.
                              7) Have the same paying customer knocked unconscious - a person is given a concussion when that happens, and dragged off the plane in a bloody mess, inflicting possible long-term brain damage from knocking the man unconscious. (CTE, anyone?)

                              United generated a PR nightmare for itself, as did the airport's police force.

                                Of course it doesn't matter, or shouldn't. I agree with you 100%.

                                Except, that's not quite the narrative that was put out there by people stoking outrage for the incident, and adopted by some here.

                                This wasn't just "passenger A was asked to leave, and when he didn't, was dragged kicking and screaming from the plane."

                                No, the narrative was delivered somewhat differently. It wasn't just generic passenger A. He was a doctor, with the implication that we are dealing with a well educated, stable, thinking individual. He was urgently needed back in Louisville at the hospital the next morning, with the implication that others people's lives are at stake here, not just this guy who wants to get home, just like everyone else. Why was this done? To stir up emotions.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
