Dr. Dao Dragged Off A Plane Then Dragged Through The Media
There's a lurid Daily Mail story about Dr. Dao, the poor man who was bloodied and dragged off the United flight.
In case you've been in an opium den or trapped under a rock for several days, this went down when United didn't plan for seats for their crew and then was too stingy to offer more money to passengers to take a later flight (to the point where it was worth it for somebody to take their offer).
They then -- thuggishly -- had the man, Dr. Dao, dragged out of his seat on the plane as if he had done something criminal.
As for the stories coming out about him now, the reality is, what he's done in his life is immaterial. He bought that seat, he got to the airport on time, and he got into his seat without incident.
What was done to him was just terrible.

reminder: we only know who this private person is because a corporation sent goons to beat the fuck out of him for using his flight ticket— Albert Burneko (@AlbertBurneko) April 11, 2017
