The worst part about this thread are the number of people who are willing (or at least vicariously demonstrating through this gentleman that got dragged away) to place their own principles above logic, reason and truth. If the doctor had made a statement clearly stating he was being taken against his will to at least one other witness (there were many more than one), all he had to do was NOT resist arrest after dong that. ALL he had to do, was NOT resist arrest.
The only reason to resist arrest is if your life is in immediate danger as a result of not resisting. It does not matter how unjust or controversial your purpose for being arrested is, it will ALWAYS work out better for you if you DON'T resist. It's not like this happened in some third world country where an arrest is a guaranteed jail term or death warrant. THINK people. You have brains, use your brain!

Now what happens when no body books a United flight ? Do they still have a problem with "over booking", or do they just go out of business for lack of customers.
I guess I would have to switch to a different carrier but I have a feeling that this incident isn't going to put them out of business.

A lot of people are cutting up their United cards and refusing to book on United.
And why'd they pick the Asian dude, and why did they stick with him even when he said he was a doctor and had patients to treat the next day?

...united has stated the flight was not overbooked that a regional branch decided at last minute they needed to deadhead 4 employees so they decided to kick four people off the plane but united is saying the plane only had 60 people on board so either this plane is smallish or they had plenty of vacant seats.
