I saw different numbers and since I have no fucking clue what "market cap" even means I went with that one. Big Grin

Oh, Girly...I shan’t make you go sit in the corner seeing as how I read your programming thread and I felt like this guy

Market cap(italization) = (outstanding shares) X (share price)

This guy isn't going to get a fucking penny. He'll be lucky to avoid a resisting arrest charge. And if United's stock bounce a day or two they don't give two fucks. Did they get boycotted today or did everyone just go wherever they were going? Thought so.

United fucked up but it's not like a major outrage. When the police come and say get it up they're not joking.

I guess people want to huff and puff but does anyone really think you can ignore the police?

The removalist thugs weren't "police" in the normal sense. They were security guards employed by the Chicago Aviation Department (and who don't have the same legal powers of arrest as state police). And it is a "major outrage" to the extent that United's share price has dropped overnight as a result, and it's likely that many Chinese nationals will now boycott their service—130 million of 'em have already viewed the Twitter footage.

The guy dragging the passenger backwards by his arms has been stood down by United, and hopefully he'll be sacked.

A stupid statement. For what one might ask? Being arrested for demanding his right to use what he purchased? For resisting a computer kicking him off a plane he had every right to take?

Are you a corporatist by any chance or do you understand your claim of socialist views so poorly that you actually argue against someone being fucked over by the corporate world?

I'm saying how it is.

We'll see how it goes. If it wasn't viral he'd definitely get resisting arrest.

I can't see any evidence of malice aforethought by the passenger. He was just sitting quietly in his paid-for, allocated seat, and didn't (rightly) arc up until approached by UA staff.

Some commentators are now suggesting it was racial discrimination—because of his Asian ethnicity, which I guess is a possibility. Why didn't the UA stewards just work their way through the passenger manifest until they found someone who was willing to take the $400 and disembark? It could've just as well been the 14th passenger or the 24th passenger, or whatever.

And what scenario led to the four other UA staff absolutely having to get to their destination, and for what critical reasons? Surely they could've flown out on the next UA flight—which would've avoided UA losing an estimated $3 million. Mucho estúpido.

Could've made the drive in 3.5 hours apparently. Would've gotten there sooner. Plane was delayed 2 hours while they cleaned up the blood.
