D.O.A. to be DOA?

  • Viral video of a bloodied man being dragged off a United Airlines flight underscores why the city’s aviation security officers should not be armed, Mayor Rahm Emanuel maintained Monday, saying he would await the outcome of a broader review to determine whether the city force should exist at all.

    In his first public comment about the embarrassing fiasco, Emanuel branded the incident involving Dr. David Dao as “totally, all-around unacceptable.”
And with United revealing none of their employees will face termination, that leaves only one group to face the hangman alone. That "private security" rumor that's been percolating for a few months here is looking more likely all of the sudden, even if it isn't the McCarthy group.

How about firing the head of aviation security. Isn't that the one responsible for the policies that were carried out. Also isn't that a Rahm appointee.

Good riddance! Useless political patronage job, we already have officers stationed at the airports- what purpose do the aviation police serve? From my understanding, CPD processes arrests at airports, Aviation police can only detain.

Interesting point of the article was that Rahm wasn't looking into United behavior. It couldn't be they donated almost $138k to him of course. He's all about transparency. And those 2 seats by United big whigs on world business chicago? Only cause they the best. Transparency again. Ginger Evans? She's Rahms girl. How was she to know even though bosses with zero clout have to know every move of thousands of officers on and off duty. It's the chicago way

Off Topic/CTA VSWO related.

It has been brought to my attention that a 4th watch sgt (MV) has been Sparring people left and right for anything and everything. On Monday she did not like the fact that 2 PO's went down on lunch approx. 2.5 miles from their post and, made them do a To-From explaining their lunch location decision. Ok MV, at 95th and the redline you tell me a location where to eat, where my lunch will not be spit on or jizzed on? Next time, you join me for lunch and I will watch you eat your meal first. Last year she was a fill in on the watch that I normally worked, so after one shift with her I cancelled the 2 other days to avoid her nonsense.

Cindy, watch how many less PO's sign up for the 4th watch with sgt MV. I can bet after this last incident of hers, less and less will sign up for this watch.

I'll be the first to agree that the Aviation Police could use more training, but what on earth do guns have to do with this incident? They didn't shoot the guy. They didn't beat him with a pistol. They didn't threaten him with a gun.
Rahm is an arrogant fukin idiot (but everybody already knows that).
I wouldn't want anyone to work as an unarmed police officer anywhere. I especially wouldn't want them to have to do that job at one of the busiest airports in the World. We all know ORD is a target. Let the Aviation cops protect it. Give them the training and the weapons necessary to do the job already.

No, they screwed themselves by crying the "gimme a gun" crap, feeding false shit to news stations, and "We're the real police," shit. Should have kicked back and enjoyed the best paying security gig ever, that sends you to the Police Academy so you can play part time Police in a suburb, or leave and lateral somewhere. After the shit last week, no PD will touch any of these guys, except maybe Robbins, Dixmoor, Cal Park, or Harvey, the homes for broken toys.

Tiny Dancer will use this to put in a connected private security firm which will give kick backs to him and his cronies. He will then raise the taxes and fees at the airports claiming the money is needed to pay for the "upgrade" in service that the new firm will provide. So the costs of flying out of shitcago will be going up. Maybe an airport in Peatone just got some life blown into it. Remember, "you never let a serious crises go to waste"!

The aviation police did not need to batter the old asian doctor and drag him off the plane. He was not armed or hurting anyone so there was no public safety issue. This was a civil matter, not a criminal matter. United could have threatened to sue the old asian doctor if he did not leave.

AVPD would likely be downsized before it ever were to be disbanded. Shaky DOA Chief won't speak out or they'll Mauer him.
The AVPD duties will probably be refined, but they'll survive and the 3 that were suspended should get their jobs back without reprisal like the United employees. If United did their customer service properly, they wouldn't need security involvement.
A simple matter that got out of hand and mostly because of an impatient United flight schedule and then there's the FAA, imposing steep fines for late departures.
CPD bit the bullet on the whole seating incident. The SunTrib media is a bit disappointed, many of the reporters hoped to make 3 months worth of columns on it.
No Monday QB'ing, but that stubborn old crank was going to get launched from the plane no matter who pulled him out by his lips and ears..because that's what UNITED wanted, and wanted it done quickly.
Then there's the frequent Rahm Family outings, always flying United.
They get the red carpet and avoid TSA checkpoint bag and pat down screening.
Just coincidently, little Rahm Jr. was robbed, beat down for his weed money and cellphone, days before their vacation flight to Chile for the high holidays.
The AVPD is a economic engine for the patronage and it stays. Sweep this under the rug. Nothing to see. Just a hiccup.
Ohare is safe and free of gangs, drugs, terror suspects and vagrants.
Plenty of eagle eyed officers and security always on duty.

And God forbid, you see how airports are a major target. How will the overweight, revolver carrying 30 year veteran officer respond? The Airport CPD detail should not be based on seniority and DOA should stop hiring retired CPD. If you properly train and arm DOA PD as well as remove the retired CPD from its ranks you might just get the airports properly secured. That is the last thing on Rahm's mind. Until CNN does an expose on the World's Most Unsecured Airport.

The Pilot, First Officers and Flight Attendants are employees of Republic Airlines. Republic is the contractor for a lot of the United Express Flights. There is another company that provides the crews for other United Express flights.

I think that your statement is probably correct, but the airports do have sworn law enforcement personnel, the CPD. DOA is just a supplement and probably can be eliminated, but most likely will not be. There are security personnel already working checkpoints at the airport and TSA screeners are not sworn . I think the city will work around if if they want to. The mayor promised a full report by the end of the month. And, once a passenger is boarded they should not be removed absent a criminal offense or disturbance. Let the airline figure it out. Let them sign a complaint for trespassing.

Just an FYI. There are rules and regulations related to this incident that fall under FAAregulations. This means federal law! The 4 crew members were classified as "must fly". That means, by whatever means necessary, these crew members must be given seats. If United didn't comply, they would be in violation of Federal rules. Secondly, this doctor,when advised he would be given a new flight and $$$$. Agreed and left the plane. Thirdly, he changed his mind after leaving the plane and ran back onto the plane, another federal violation. This guy became combative and spit on the aviation officers flailing his arms like a petulant child. I don't know one person, regardless if you are a sworn police officer,an aviation security officer, or Joe blow citizen who would be ok with this "doctors" behavior. Forget about the fact that he was a doctor. Is he more important than any other passenger on board? Hardly. If you read and understand the small print on every ticket issued by the airlines, there is small print known as "contract of carriage". This plane is the property of united airlines and their rules apply! The united airline crew members are in total and legal control of their plane. Don't like their rules? Drive yourself or hire a private plane. Do I think this was handled well? 'It really but this doctor caused his own problems. And, I've never flown united airlines so I am not saying this because I have any concern for a corporation but because that is the law. Once this man ran back onto the plane, he needed to be removed. The choice was his as to how he went. Like a man, like a little butch, or dragged like an asshole

They offered me a Job...and I have Zero Clout.

I'm glad I turned it down though.

To respond to the snide 12:22 comment about a 30 yr veteran. Give me him any day because of multiple factors (a) He's EARNED the right to slow down by working 25+ years in a beat car (b) In 30 yrs he's learned to deal with all kinds of people and would have handled it with force being the LAST resort. (c) Why the hell was Aviation even on board? (d) If Aviation wasn't so stupid they'd realize they have a great gig. (e) Why again was Aviation on board again? To say you need to arm Aviation and train them is true but the BEST training is to work that beat car for 25 yrs and when it's time to slow down BID to O'Hare. P.S. Nice crew cut by the way fruit loop.

I spoke with a friend who is an A.S.O.. He said that they don't have a procedure in place that deals with passengers that refuse to leave the plane when requested to do so by flight staff. They didn't receive any training to deal with situations like that.

4/19/2017 09:34:00 AM

What does "training" have to do with speaking in a civilzed manner and communicating the issues to an individual. How was it these Officers thought escalating the situation was a good idea.

How exactly do you get a person off an airplane that doesn't want to go? The policy might be stupid but if they say you got to go then you got to go. If they dump aviation police then guess who's going to be on the next viral video dragging a passenger who refuses to leave, yep CPD.

4/19/2017 02:09:00 PM

A flight attendant uses the public address system and announces to the passengers in the cabin that the plane cannot and will not leave the airport until Mr/Mrs X disembarks. If the person does not immediately disembark, they will eventually leave the plane as a result of gentle persuasion provided by the other passengers. No muss, no fuss, no police involvement unless Mr/Mrs X becomes the victim of a battery initiated by a fellow passenger.

""No, they screwed themselves by crying the "gimme a gun" crap, feeding false shit to news stations, and "We're the real police," shit. Should have kicked back and enjoyed the best paying security gig ever, that sends you to the Police Academy so you can play part time Police in a suburb, or leave and lateral somewhere. After the shit last week, no PD will touch any of these guys, except maybe Robbins, Dixmoor, Cal Park, or Harvey, the homes for broken toys.

No, they brought in on themselves. Now maybe a parking book, dog noose, or lockup in a ghetto District is your fate.""

Yeah sorry to say this has all been building for a few years. "Most" of the APS guys are good guys who know they have a good gig but they have a small cadre who just kept pushing it. They and their Union Rep, with no knowledge of the union, went on CNN and made people look bad, the Union Reps all got fired for it, and then they kept pushing it by showing up at Jobs first, trying to handle them. Making fun of us and being assholes, doing traffic stops, calling out 10-1s, seeing crime all over the place...ect

Only 50% of the airport is there on juice. The rest of us did enough Policing in our time to deserve to take our last year or two not creating crime where it doesnt exist. Some of these guys really thought they were the real deal. Then you had their supervisors who stayed hidden cause they didnt want to step on any toes down there and ruin THEIR sweet gig. Every other day they would have a new SOP for them, show up, dont show up, handle it, dont handle it, do this, dont do that.

I sincerely hope they dont lose their jobs. Being out of work is a serious thing and why would anyone wish it on them? Clout or not who cares. And once again it shows the pecking order and who the pawns are at the airport. It wouldnt have been all that different had it been CPD involved when the beef went down. The airlines and the shit bags holding the phone cams would be screaming for our jobs too.

Some racist/Muslim terrorist kills 4 in CA. and it hardly makes the news. Meanwhile this nonsense has been getting printed for over a week? What a bunch of shit. Maybe we should all "run away".

How about private security goons? Nightclubs don't call the cops when someone isn't acting according to house rules, they have their own bouncers. Or maybe the local air marshal, since AFAIK part of the pre-takeoff safety spiel is something to the effect of "federal law requires compliance with all crew instructions" which would suggest that this is a federal matter.

Re: the Mike Rowe article, as usual he nailed it. Classic case of all involved behaving badly with expected results. That said, prospective unruly passengers would be wise to note that if we start selectively following said federally-backed instructions the other passengers can selectively ignore the part about not clobbering an obstruction to takeoff into submission and throwing him out the hatch themselves. Good for the goose and all that...

With this discussion being overplayed now for over a week, and all the Burke questions about DOA procedures and SOPs, has there been any investigation into the type of training flight crews get with regard to incidents like this. Are United employees aware that the contractual relationship between airline/passenger or vender/customer is a civil matter, not one of broken laws or civil disobedience. Where is it in United's training and procedures that says security or law enforcement are called to eject or remove a paying customer? Who is it that instructs flight attendants to call the police or security to remove a passenger who refuses to give up his paid for seat?

From here it looks like a situation that occurs on a weekend, when most supervisors are regular day off and decisions on the best course to follow are left to the responding officers.

Since its a federal crime to refuse, tell the airline to request a TSA or FBI agent to remove them.

To the guy beating on Aviation and calling this a civil matter, you are an arrogant prick or a scumbag lawyer. Someone refusing to leave when asked to do so is criminal trespassing. We can argue how it could've been handled better all you want but don't claim that it was a civil matter when at it's very core it's very easily a criminal matter.


God, I hope you're not the police.

Hows this sound over a loud speaker. "Ladies and gentleman, due to federal regulations we will have to de-plane while a new flight crew takes over this flight. Please take all carry-ons and personal property with you and we will conduct our new pre-flight inspection as quickly as possible." And then we do a do-over with re-entry and problem resolved.

Increase & improve major airports' security and decrease local costs by making it a federal responsibility. (Think Israel.) Don't use an expanded TSA for that either.

It has been brought to my attention that a 4th watch sgt (MV) has been Sparring people left and right for anything and everything. On Monday she did not like the fact that 2 PO's went down on lunch approx. 2.5 miles from their post and, made them do a To-From explaining their lunch location decision. Ok MV, at 95th and the redline you tell me a location where to eat, where my lunch will not be spit on or jizzed on?

Listen Kid,

EVERY restaurant has at LEAST 1 clown that will spit or "jizz" on coppers food.
This IS a democrat city and MANY people absolutely HATE the police.

Smarten up everyone.
DO NOT EAT OUT when you are on the job.

Bring your lunch to work and eat it at the station or in the car.

And YES, that was the sound of a zipper opening in the kitchen the last time you went to your favorite spot.

Last year she was a fill in on the watch that I normally worked, so after one shift with her I cancelled the 2 other days to avoid her nonsense.

Cindy, watch how many less PO's sign up for the 4th watch with sgt MV. I can bet after this last incident of hers, less and less will sign up for this watch.

First of all, as a "Sergeant" in the CHICAGO POLICE DEPT.

However, we will standby at the gate if you happen to violate his "civil Rights." Have a nice day.

Yes. It's trespassing. It goes from civil to criminal the moment the owner or agent on private property tells you to get out and you don't.

Not to sure about that. Especially when you say eviction. Say you don't pay the rent, can the landlord, owner of the property come over and tell you to leave his property and if you don't have you charged with trespassing
Can't say you have a lease because you violated the lease by not paying your rent and even if you don't have a lease the landlord can't sign a complaint for trespassing. Dr had a ticket if that makes a difference. Just asking
