Contrary to Munoz’s statement, Dao appears to be composed in the video. In the beginning, he can be heard asking the offer “Why did you choose me?” but is met with no reply


Interesting line of dialog: "My lawyer told me to stay."

Sounds like the doctor had some issues.

http://nypost.com/2017/04/11/doctor-dra ... s-for-sex/
The passenger hauled off a United flight is a lung doctor with a taste for gambling, a history of angry outbursts — and a conviction for trading narcotics prescriptions and cash for gay sex in motels.

http://www.tmz.com/2017/04/11/united-ai ... drugs-sex/
Dr. David Dao was charged in 2005 with 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers. Prosecutors claimed Dao fraudulently filled prescriptions for hydrocodone, Oxycontin and Percocet.
Dr. Dao was also convicted on 6 felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit and in 2005 was given 5 years probation.
Dao was also convicted for writing prescriptions and checks to a patient in exchange for sex.
In medical board documents ... Dao denied paying for sex, but indicated he accepted sexual favors from an associate in exchange for reducing a debt that associate owed him.
In February, 2005, Dr. Dao surrendered his license to practice medicine in Kentucky. In 2015 the medical board lifted the suspension and allowed him to practice medicine with some restrictions. Last year, the medical board imposed even more restrictions -- now he can only practice internal medicine in an outpatient facility one day a week.
Interestingly, and relevant to the United incident, one doctor assessing Dao's case said he had interpersonal problems, noting "... he would unilaterally choose to do his own thing."

Not to leave out American Ailrlines.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/22/us/americ ... index.html
The video of the American Airlines encounter starts off with a woman sobbing as she holds a baby.
"Just give me back my stroller please," she says tearfully.
A male passenger stands up and intervenes, apparently upset with how the woman's situation was handled. He tells the flight attendant, "Hey bud, hey bud. You do that to me, and I'll knock you flat."
The flight attendant tells the male passenger to stay out of it, then later taunts him to "hit me, hit me ... bring it on."


You cannot bring a baby stroller on a plane. She didn't want the give it up so they physically took it from her. In the process she might have been hit and the baby was almost hit. Here we go again.

This world is getting ridiculous. There has been an explosion of a bunch of social media addicted self righteous overly sensitive idiots that just can't simply follow rules. Then they film the repercussions and try to go viral and reap the benefits.

I don't feel sorry for that girl at all. She should know better than to drag a full size stroller on to the plane.

Always takes me back to this image. People are constantly looking for something to be offended by. You break the rules there are consequences. From what I read she refused to give up her stroller and started yelling at the flight attendant.

And you are really offended by that behavior, to the point of griping about it on the internet. 8-)

They say she didn't speak English very well so that might have been part of the problem. They allow you to roll your baby up to the plane in a stroller and then they check it. You get it right back when you land just like when the take your carry on from you when the bins are too full. I have done it dozens of times. I didn't try to hold onto my bag and fight them for it. That's a real good way to get booted from a plane on any airline.

Are you here to have a discussion or just act like a troll? I made a comment about a news topic and how all of these recent events have been overblown. You can agree or disagree, but no need to be a dick.

Yep, must have been a misunderstanding by her. It's not like she needs her stroller while on the plane. There's definitely no reason to make a big fuss over it.
