I really understand what you both mean, just because I'm blaming him doesn't mean I don't feel bad for the poor guy. Probably what gets me thrown off is this tendency some people have of making big an even bigger mess. Corporations are made of people like us, depending on how you talk to them they will talk back (most of the time, otherwise they lose customers). This would have ended differently without an adult throwing a tantrum and stand motionless while he gets dragged off like a big baby. Is it too hard to cooperate when it's obvious you're on the losing side and your removal is imminent? The other three persons removed from the flight (were they removed?) or any other recent removal didn't make it to the headlines with the same impact this guy did.
Officer: I'm just telling you, it's going to be a lot harder for you...
Dr. Dao: Yes I know that, I'd rather go to jail.
And yes, they indeed researched this guy's past right after it happened. I'm surprised at this point no one has posted their patient consequences. Probably there were none.
