True but is he had a concussion I don't really think he's to blame for that.
Was he officially diagnosed with that? I was not aware. His lawyer can play that in court if need be I guess.

I'm not sure I was just saying that assuming he was, then that's probably a valid argument.

More people jumping on the United publicity shaming train, although it sounds like its probably the passengers' fault in the first place.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

This is brutal.

Delta's turn:

This is blown out of proportion. If not for the recent incidents, this would been a minor incident with relatively little press coverage.
