This has been making the rounds. Thanks to B.A. who mailed it to me and Aardvark who posted it. It’s the video of an old Asian dude getting whooped by security for refusing to give up his seat on a United flight.
It’s strange that United would do this to a passenger who PAID. I really don’t understand how this happened. If the guy had a boarding pass with a seat number, how did he get in, and who are they giving the seat to? Why did they seat him and then remove him? Why did they bloody the face of a PAYING CUSTOMER? You can see the blood on his face. If the story is correct and he was randomly chosen by a computer, I guess it could happen to anyone. In other words, that could be YOU getting bloodied up because United doesn’t want to give you the seat that you paid for.
Meanwhile, the United Airlines CEO has doubled down. Notice how he uses the term “re-accommodate” rather than “kick the shit out of.”
It reminds me of those union busters during the late 1800’s/early 1900’s who beat the crap out of workers to make a point. Only at United, instead of whooping their airline attendants, evidently they go after their customers. Looks like even government officials are speaking out.
