The latest video has our hero saying: "I'm not going; I'm staying! You can drag me out!'"

The officers involved belong to the Chicago Aviation Police and they are unarmed.
It says that they are encouraged to evacuate or hide if an armed situation occurs.
They've been in a long political bid to carry firearms.
Obviously that would mean higher pay.
The Chicago pol who runs the Aviation Committee now says that the incident was handled so poorly they've lost their argument to be armed.
He had said - before this incident - if they're not armed they can get somebody cheaper.

by now who does not live under a rock has seen the horrible beating of
Dr. David Dao by an O’Hare International Airport security officer, with
what seems to be O’Hare airport police backing the security officer
up. Most everyone with a conscience is offended and horrified at what
occurred to Dr. Dao. Pretty much everyone would also tell you that the
response from United was one of the worst PR boners of the past 100
years. Between stating in an email to United employees that the
doctor had been belligerent, to suggesting that the doctor actually
“fell and hurt his head” while being beaten by airport security, to then
having the CEO of United apologize for “having to re-accommodate
passengers on an overbooked flight” (the flight was not overbooked), to
finally having to apologize only after losing one billion dollars in
stock valuations. The list goes on and on.
now has become a punchline, a joke, about how badly airline passengers
are treated by both the airports and by the carriers themselves. We can
all agree that airports have become a horrid place to be, and there are
many reasons for air travel having become such a mess. Everything from
the FAA to the TSA to other problems I cannot even fathom.
there is an even bigger threat to our freedom here. That is: the fact
that at an airport, O’Hare law enforcement seems to have acted at the
behest of United Airlines to make up for the stupidity of the employees
and station managers of United. Meaning that for any and all intents and
purposes, O’Hare police were literally acting as enforcers for a
corrupt or inept company who wanted to cover up its mistake of improper
scheduling -- and instead of spending a couple thousand dollars
transporting the employees, United’s station manager called in their
paid for Gestapo to do their dirty work.
could have said to the passengers that this plane cannot take off until
the doctor has left -- and then sat on the runway until either Dr. Dao
relented or until someone else relented. Of course, United could have
done the smart thing and not loaded anyone until they had four
passengers who would give up their flight for the United employees.
no – instead, they corrupted local law enforcement, whose authority we
should try to respect, into doing their dirty work, to cover up their
own ineptitude. One of the great things about the American experiment is
that our court system and law enforcement responders have always been
neutral whenever they go to a crime scene or to handle a domestic
violence scene. Police might make a mistake, but at least they are
trying to be fair whenever they respond to any situation. But not
here. Not this time.
O’Hare airport, law enforcement works for the airlines who have
mistreated their passengers and in this case, law enforcement and
airport security physically abused United’s passenger to make up for
United’s mistake. This is not the first time United has tried something
like this. Just last year, United tried to remove a first-class passenger
from a flight to “make way for a higher priority passenger”. When the
passenger protested, United employees threatened to call the airport
police and put the man in handcuffs. Imagine -- threatening a
first-class passenger with arrest and jail because United wanted to give
the seat to a “higher priority passenger.” So it is very evident that
United feels as though it can have its passengers arrested if they can’t
make up for its own ineptitude. And federal law backs up United
here. If a passenger does not obey any flight attendant, that passenger
has committed a federal crime. So all United (or any other air carrier)
need to when they make a mistake is to remove the passenger or threaten
them with being arrested. Most people will get off the plane rather than
being arrested. God bless the good doctor for refusing to give into
(For the record, the passenger who was fraudulently bumped
from first class suggested to United’s senior management that they
refund his ticket and donate $25,000 to a charity of his choice. United
instead offered the first-class passenger $500 credit to his next flight
on United. And of course nothing to any charity)
for United, they don’t need to train their employees on how to handle
difficult situations. When there is a problem, all the employee or
station manager need do is call the police and have the officers arrest
someone – yes, that’s good for business. But federal law allows for
United to do this. Meaning that federal law has helped to corrupt local
law enforcement by all but requiring airport police to arrest someone
who has a legitimate disagreement with an airport employee while on the
plane, no matter how inept the airline employee has been. While we can
all agree that under no circumstance should any passenger be allowed to
be unruly during a flight, we cannot use federal laws/statutes and those
who are sworn to enforce those laws to make up for the incompetence of
corporations and their employees. The end result would be tyranny by
cop. And by Oscar Munoz, CEO of United Airlines.

His lawyer and daughter are on tv right now.
The lawyer said that the City of Chicago might also be held $$ accountable.
I can see the lawsuit wording....actions by the airline that "shocked the conscience".
Corporate stupidity and hubris made this guy a multi-millionaire.
Now the next "overbooked passenger" holds out for what....$10K...$20K...a private Gulfstream?
How do they get someone to take the voucher for $500 now?
I'd say drag me out mfer's. lol
