David Dao is being dragged through the media mud this morning talking about his drug charges as if his past behavior makes just the current behavior of United Airlines.
It does not.
David Dao is a senior citizen. He is a man who is 69 years old and didn’t expect to be dragged by his hands and feet from an aircraft.
You can’t dress that statement up and make me believe it was justified. You can’t do it.
Not promoting those bloody and abusive images to further dehumanize Mr. Dao. He is a family man who didn’t deserve the treatment he received.
I don’t care what David Dao was doing in the past. In the present, he was a passenger on United Airlines trying to get home.
United offered an $800 voucher David didn’t want. Hell, in his place, I wouldn’t want it either. Once I get on a plane, there is only one place I want to be.
Make no mistake about it. Once I am on a plane, unless it’s on fire or crashing, I want nothing more in the Universe than to be getting off: AT MY DESTINATION.
