Did United Passenger Who Got Kicked Off Deserve What he Got?

David Lawrence
Written by David Lawrence

Dr. David Dao got beaten up on a United Airlines flight.  He was misbehaving, shouting and ruining the equanimity of the plane.  He was a danger to the other passengers.

With all the terrorism and horrors  on planes who could blame United for yanking Dao off the plane?  If my daughter was sitting next to his hysteria I might have punched him in his obstreperous face. He was narcissism flailing.

Dao was being disruptive and belligerent.  This is particularly egregious on a plane with its history of hijackings and crashes.

It’s time we cared more about the innocent passengers than about hysterical  Dao. The liberals who sympathize with Dao remind me of Obama setting serious felons free. People like me who have been to jail laugh at liberals who protect us.

Appeaser Spicer said, “I don’t think you can’t sit back and say this could have been handled better.”

Yes, it could have Spicer.  Dr. Dao could have not thrown a fit. He could have been given a jail sentence for almost starting a riot.

Looking at Dao’s record his license was suspended in 2003.  He was charged with unlawfully prescribing and trafficking in drugs. He was serving five years’ probation. This may or not be true.  The real problem is that he threatened the other passengers and shrieked like a hyena.

I think the CEO of United, Oscar Munoz, should stop apologizing.  Dao deserved what he got and more.  He was a crybaby who endangered others.
