Read it further.

That is probably incorrect.

And they are not positive which one it really is.

Sounds like a hate crime too.

Discrimination against asians. Civil rights.

We are flying United friday to the states.

Should have booked Cathay, dammit.

Stock down $600 million today hopefully farther tomorrow.



This is Karma. The guy did say he was a doctor. The funny thing is they probably prevent this doctor from saving someones life that probably effect United Airline stock market. What a bunch of idiots. I remember hearing from firefighters there was a guy driving a car blocking the road. He got fined and found out that his house was the one on fire and he had no insurance.


Now he is in hospital, just imagine the wait time and delays that shouldn't have exist. What comes are goes around.

Also I heard that United Airlines prevent people on or kick them out for small reasons. That is another reason.

Imagine if everyone on that plane protested with him? What power then?


You really are looking at the situation very simplistically, so simplistically that you are ignoring obvious reasons not to look at the situation in that way. While the following summary of mine might appear like an "armchair psychological analysis" of the situation and cannot be confirmed, this is the way I see the situation:

At the time the passengers were informed that since nobody had volunteered the airline would now proceed to use a lottery system to select a passenger at random who would be forced to leave, THAT was their final chance to unite and protest with him. Why? Because at that moment all the passengers were in the exact same position (fearing they themselves would be the person to be selected to be unjustly and very badly inconvenienced) and although the situation was very unjust, the longer the passengers refused to accept their fate, the greater the chance that the situation could only get worse for everybody on the plane.

Once it was confirmed who the person was that was going to be kicked off the flight, EVERYTHING from that point onward for all other passengers changed dramatically. Some would still be sympathetic that this poor guy was the one chosen and could not accept what was happening, some would now want him to leave immediately so everyone could move on, the vast majority of passengers overall would be breathing a sigh of relief that it was not them chosen, and that they would not have to be badly inconvenienced.

After 1 minute of refusing to leave, 95% of the passengers would start viewing this guy as the enemy. He alone would not accept his fate and every second longer it took for him to realise this and leave was starting to inconvenience everyone else. Flight staff would now have to either agree to stay there indefinitely or have the man removed forcefully. They chose the second option.

The actual manhandling of the doctor would have evoked some rage and greater sympathy from other passengers, but without consciously acknowledging it, they were glad that this threat to them being able to fly and fulfil all their own plans and obligations was being removed from their lives.

As soon as he was off the plane, along with the officers, and as soon as everyone composed themselves, they felt relieved. The threat to all their plans had been removed and it was time to move on.

But now the CEO has apologized.
But now we find out the Dr. was suspended from practicing medicine
... because he was using his MD status to 'deal drugs'.

What were we missing in the left hand while this drama played out in the right??

YEah reddit says they have confused him with someone else of a similiar name so NOPE.

Reddit has it that it's very possible he is being wrongly accused of this, and they have the wrong Dr. Dau. I wrote his attorney to find out. I won't hold my breath for an answer.

It's a little hard to do that when he is apparently in the hospital according to his attorney Mr. Golan.

People are Sheep : Baaa!

Unless someone thinks for the and tells them what to do, nothing will change.

Those people had a chance to help themselves by all uniting before someone is chosen, but they didn't do it cos no one told them to lol. Bunch of idiots.

Sorry. I was being sarcastic when I wrote that.

There simply is no excuse United can offer for this mess.

I swear to God, Donald Trump needs to look at them as a company and: Suspend Their Business License.

We'll see who wants to risk overbooking a flight after that.

I think as citizens we need to demand our government stop paying any and all monies to the airline industry until this gets sorted out. The President has a plane. That's good enough for the moment.

ETA: I'm sure we'll get that the day after Hillary and Susan Rice go to jail for the laws they broke.

This is the problem with that kind of cold reasoning and analysis of the nature of human self interest.

In a time of crisis, Civility breaks down.

This is why an enlightened mutual best interest, altruism and even love for one's fellow man is superior to a purely "rational self interest", because amid competing self-interest, once again, chaos.

This is one of many reasons that I firmly believe in and subscribe to the Christian ethic and ideal and by that I'm not referring to Christians in general or Churchianity, but to the unassailable reason and logic of the basis of that kind of love, which ironically, the cold-hearted rationalists cannot understand for the life of them and it remains in their blind spot.

I'm obviously referring to a larger context that this isolated incident.
