11. This incident has nothing to do with your husband's union job. Nothing.

The only employees targeted are the class of people who did wrong, including the CEO.

My dad worked for Lockheed Aircraft for 44 years. He was in the union. He was a mechanic, then an inspector, then inspector-supervisor, and finally an electronics technician/inspector/supervisor.

Whatever corporate decisions were being made were very far above his head, but I trust he would have found another job if instructions from on high had been to personally brutalize other human beings., bloody their faces, and terrorize them.

15. .



I think this bad Pr is meant to hurt the strong airline unions. While the incident was appalling and handled poorly. I think this is bs to take the headlines off of chump.


So you believe someone designed an incident that would create a viral video of a man with blood dripping down his face who is stil hospitalized as a result of the incident? And someone out to get unions or distract from Trump convinced the CEO to act like a horse's rear end in his first response?

Or if you don't believe it was staged, do you really think that - but for hatred of unions or a desire to detract from trump - people would have ignored it?

Those are pretty much the only two options for you bad PR assertions, and neither is believable.

17. It wasn't designed

It's that the media has amplified this so much.

1) take the story off chump
2) go after the big bad unionized airline

18. That's just silly.

As to Trump - part of the reason this is getting lots of attention is precisely BECAUSE of how Trump's policies have impacted air travel. After people being detained for hours & days, being humiliated as part of the detention, etc. everyone - but especially people who are minorities - are on edge that something like this will happen during travel. And it did. Whether it was actually related or not, any airport incident brings to mind Trump's immigration ban that most publicly hit airlines.

As to the big bad unionized airline - I have not read a single mention of "union" in any of the stories, nor any other suggestion than yours that this is somehow motivated by animus toward unions.

It is being amplified becuase it is a horrifying story that the CEO of United responded to by blaming the victim, refusing to acknowledge any wrong-doing for a couple of days - and since we've all been subjected to increasing manhandling at airports it is something we can all relate to. Many of us are on the verge of "Mad as hell and not gonna take it any more" in connection with travel. The response would have been the same regardless of which airline (unionized or not) bungled it initially and then compounded it by acting like a horse's rear end.

I understand this impacts you personally, but it's really not about anything more than outrage and empathy for someone in a position we can all personally imagine being in.

21. You can certainly make claims, and believe whatever you want.

but your allegations stretch the imagination. It should not have surprised you that they were challenged.
