Dr. David Dao, the United Airlines passenger who was roughly dragged off a plane by police officers, has apparently been compared to civil rights hero Rosa Parks. And not everyone is too pleased about the comparison.
The video of David Dao being forcefully removed from the flight went viral this week for its extreme treatment of a paying customer who was already seated the plane. The United flight was thought to be overbooked, but it turned out they just didn't have enough seats for several airlines employees, so four people were asked to leave the plane. When Dao, who had supposedly been chosen at random, refused to leave his seat, Chicago police intervened—hard.
