The article includes a link to this document: https://www.transportation.gov/sites/do ... atcr_0.pdf

According to page 57, United Airlines is the industry leader in killing pets.

So I can only assume that their CEO will soon be the Secretary of Transportation.

I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

The Officer who dragged the passenger off the plane is suing United.
Long's suit names United Airlines, the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) and its commissioner, Ginger Evans.

"But for the CDA's negligence and failure to train (Long) how to respond to an escalating situation with an airline passenger, (he) would not have acted in the manner he did, which resulted in his termination," according to the lawsuit.

It always amuses me when cops claim that the problem is that they weren't *trained* not to be assholes. They should sue their parents while they're at it.

IIRC, didn't the sadists at Abu Ghraib try claiming "lack of training" too? "Without special classes, how do you expect us to not-torture prisoners, huh?"
