In a newly released video, United Airlines passenger David Dao argues with United employees and police before being dragged unconscious off of an overbooked flight.
This is the first video that has been released that shows the exchange between Dao and police and security before being forcibly removed from the United airlines flight that has caused international outrage.
During the video, he can be seen talking on his phone and telling officers he will not willingly leave that they will have to drag him off the plane. He also states that he would rather go to jail than give up his seat.
The incident has caused universal outrage due to the absurdly greedy policy of airlines overbooking flights then kicking some paying customers off when everyone actually shows up for the flight. This situation was particularly outrageous because they were kicking passengers off to make room for their own employees.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is advocating a very common sense law of not allowing airlines to overbook flights.
