VIDEO OF POLICE DRAGGING BUMPED UNITED AIRLINE PASSENGER AFTER OVERBOOKED FLIGHT TO MAKE ROOM FOR STAFF
Outrageous! An O’Hare airport cop slammed a United Airlines passenger into an arm rest, dragging the bleeding and unconscious Chinese man who was bumped off the overbooked flight to make room for airline’s own staff.
From Daily Mail:
An airport cop who body-slammed a United passenger and dragged him off an overbooked flight was put on leave today – as his bosses condemned his actions amid mounting outrage over video of the incident.
The Chicago Department of Aviation said it ‘obviously’ did not condone the behavior of the security officer who was filmed slamming the man into an arm rest, knocking him unconscious and dragging him away by his arms as he bled from the mouth at O’Hare.
United is facing growing anger after they selected the 69-year-old man – who claimed to be a doctor – to be bumped from the overbooked flight to Louisville to make room for its staff on Sunday night.
The airline’s CEO apologized today even as new video emerged of the man, who had refused to leave the flight, bleeding heavily from the mouth and mumbling about suicide in the aftermath of his brutal treatment.
In the clip, the dazed man chants ‘just kill me, just kill me’ as blood pours from his mouth.
It seems to have been filmed after another clip that shows the victim somehow broke free from the airport cops and ran back onto the plane chanting ‘I need to go home, I need to go home.’
Their statement released on Sunday night said: ‘Aviation Officers arrived on scene attempted to carry the individual off of the flight when he fell. His head subsequently struck an armrest causing injuries to his face.’
It claimed that the man had begun yelling his displeasure at being selected to leave and was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Today the department retreated from the statement, referring all enquiries to the Aviation Department.

HOW DOES UNITED DECIDE WHO GETS BUMPED FROM OVERBOOKED FLIGHTS?
United’s contract of carriage states that passengers to be forcibly taken off a flight in the event of overbooking will be ‘determined based on a passenger’s fare class, itinerary, status of frequent flyer program membership, and the time in which the passenger presents him/herself for check-in without advanced seat assignment.’
That means that if you have a certain type of fare class, checked in early, have a flier status such as gold, or even just own a barely used frequent flier card, you are less likely to be bumped.
But passengers taking advantage of budget seats appear to be of less value to the airline
UNRULY UBER PASSENGER BANNED FOR LIFE AFTER THREATENING TO ACCUSE DRIVER OF RAPE BECAUSE HE HAS NO PHONE CHARGER – VIDEO
- ‘I’m going to start screaming out the window that you’re raping me, that you raped me.
- ‘I will punch myself in the face and tell the cops you did it. You wanna play?’
- ‘Donald Trump is going to send you and your family back. Get the f*** out of my country.’
( Daily Mail ) In shocking dashcam video of the altercation, the woman can be heard shouting from the back seat: ‘I’m going to start screaming out the window that you’re raping me, that you raped me.
‘I will punch myself in the face and tell the cops you did it. You wanna play?’
An Uber spokesman told MailOnline: ‘The behavior in this video is abusive and completely unacceptable.
‘As our Community Guidelines make clear, this will not be tolerated by anyone who uses Uber. The rider’s account has been banned and Uber is looking into this incident.’
The clip – recorded in the Bronx in New York, US – has provoked a furious backlash against the woman online with commenters branding her ‘stupid’ while praising the ‘patient’ driver.
At one point she screams at the man to ‘go back to your country’ as she fumes: ‘Donald Trump is going to send you and your family back. Get the f*** out of my country.’
The row is said to have started because the woman’s phone had run out of battery and the driver did not have a charger for her to use.
He calmly explains to the woman: ‘If I don’t have a charger, politely ask me. I’ll politely tell you, “I’m sorry I don’t have a charger,”.’
But she continues yelling at him to ‘call the cops’ while threatening to spit in his face and ‘violate’ him.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, says in the clip: ‘I will punch myself in the face and tell the cops you did it.
‘You’re going to jail. You wanna play yourself? I’ll call the cops right now…I’m going to tell them you’re holding me against my will.
‘You’re going to jail for domestic violence.’
The driver, who says he has been with Uber for more than two years, repeatedly asks her to leave the car as she screams racial slurs in his direction and orders him to call her boyfriend using his own phone.
Eventually after eight minutes the woman gets out of the car – but not before shouting out the window in English and Spanish asking passersby to call the police.
