I just came across a new video that shows what happened in the minutes before the infamous United passenger dragging situation the other day. In the video you can see that the passenger (Dr. Dao) is calm when talking to the officer. He says he has to see patients, at one points says he will sue United Airlines and he even says he would rather go to jail than voluntarily get off.
The officer also clearly threatens the passenger by saying that he will have to drag him off of the airplane despite the passenger being very calm at the time. There is a jump in the video, so we don’t see every moment, but this video clearly shows the passenger wasn’t belligerent.
What do you think? Does this change your opinion of what happened? Have you seen any other videos that show the correspondence with officers before Dr. David Dao was dragged off?
