He should have left the plane when they asked.

Airline shouldn't have overbooked the flight to begin with.

Can't believe that is fucking legal.

Turns out the didn't over book. They were trying to reposition a crew so another flight of 200 people wasn't sitting around.

United is a low budget shit airline. Personally, I avoid them. But it is clearly spelled out in the contract of carriage when you but the tickets.

So, what do you say to the claim that increasing violence is required to enforce late stage capitalism?

Hey, United Airlines deserves every bit of criticism, but don't be a commie faggot.

So you dont like property rights?

I say, you're not obliged to fly on the plane when they tell you to leave. Assuming they reimburse you, but it's a private company and money talks. If you refuse, what are they suppose to do? Ask nicely again?

Get the fuck up and leave, entitled shits. He was struggling and fighting the cops.

Shouldn't have boarded him (or anyone) if they knew they didn't have enough seats for everyone. No one should have been let on the plane until the seat issue/# of flyers issue was resolved. That is going to be the legal hang-up here. This will settle before it ever goes to trial. United knows it fucked up.
