    Yea. I just hope they cleaned the seat the lice-ridden kid was sitting in. If not, I feel sorry for whoever was the next person to use that seat.

    Here's the back story of the Doctor who got tossed off the plane and beat up by the cops.

    From a United flight attendant I know who said this is what the MSM neglected to mention:


    It seems that the good doctor had volunteered to give up his seat and leave the plane. Even got paid to depart.

    Then he changed his mind after the seats were filled. He went to the gate person and said he changed his mind and tried to pay the money back.

    They told him it was too late. So the doctor decides to 'charge' the plane by running down the gangway to the door.

    They grabbed him and escorted him back out to the waiting area and he promptly ran back down the jetway.

    They again escorted him back out and called security.

    So he goes for the gate a 3rd time! Security dragged his stupid ass out and the rest is the media bias...

    No need to freak out in such a case. There's no way possible for any human to be able to open the door once the plane is pressurized.

    The proper response would be to laugh at and openly mock the person trying to do so. Possibly even encourage them. Ie: let them tire themselves out so that way when you take 'em down after they give up, they'll be too wore out to put up much of a fight.

    Just for reference, it takes in excess of 3,000 pounds of force to overcome the planes internal pressure. No human can muster that kind of force barehanded and without using proper leverage. Maybe with a 50' crowbar or something, but his own two hands? No way. I'm amazed that it seems most people don't realize that.
