I’m a big believer in “There’s two sides to every story, and the truth lies somewhere in the middle” and I take everything I see online with a grain of salt…
United had to ask several passengers who had already boarded a flight from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday evening to leave, as the airline had sold too many tickets. One man refused to leave, and United called airport officials, who forcibly removed him from the plane.
However, the treatment a paying customer received on a recent United Airlines flight is pretty cut and dry. The fact that this escalated to the point of this man being pulled from his seat, smashing his fast on an armrest and dragged, what looks to be unconscious, off the plane is despicable. The video’s below are difficult to watch and some contain N.S.F.W. language.
Imagine, buying a car, showing up on the day they say they have it ready for you, only to be forcibly dragged out of something you paid for and see one of the employees drive off in it…
This is video from another passenger on the plane;
Now of course, there’s been some dirt dug up on this doctor:
The 69-year-old Kentucky doctor who was forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight on Sunday had previously lost his medical license in an undercover drug sting that cops set up by using a former employee he was sleeping with as bait. According to The Courier-Journal, David Dao moved to the U.S. after going to medical school in Vietnam in the 1970s. In 2003, he was arrested for writing fraudulent prescriptions for controlled substances after police received help from the employee-turned-patient he was sleeping with to build a case against him. As part of his multiple felony convictions in 2004, Dao surrendered his medical license, but the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure permitted him to return to practicing medicine in 2015 under certain conditions.
