Is that using the Taser or Batons first?

Sorry, I have compassion for all human beings, especially those degraded unfairly as this one appeared to be.

Re: United, again.

So you can't quote the rule you said allows security to beat the snot out of passengers? It is a simple solution. Quote the rule you said which allows security to beat the snot out of passengers or just say you are full of sh*t. It's not that difficult according to you. https://www.google.ca/?gfe_r...

You said security can beat the snot out of a passenger under the rules and you can't quote the rule? If you're full of sh*t just say so. Easier for everybody. All good then? Brilliant response! Such intelligence. I suggest Google for to get the answers you need. It's not that difficult. Good luck!

I find it fascinating the difference in every respect between the Asiana SFO accident and this one. Both landed short. That's it. Isn't it?
