A doctor arrives at the Orlando airport at 6 am for a flight that is supposed to depart at 6:24. When the airline staff tells him that he is too late for check-in and has missed his flight, he becomes irate and demands to be placed on another flight. He was verbally abusive towards the airline employees, to they called the police. The airline employees offered to place him on standby for the next available flight, which was at 7:20 a.m.. He was told by police to get out of the line because he was yelling obscenities.
After he was removed from the line, he could be seen standing near an officer yelling that an American Airlines employee had a “flippant attitude” and that the officer was trying to provoke him.
“Do you know how to de-escalate things, genius?” the doctor said to the police officer, “Do you have training, genius?”
They eventually yell him that he is being trespassed and must leave the airport. That is when he loses his shit.
The police tell him that he has to leave, because he is being trespassed by the airline staff. The good doctor refuses, and then begins getting violent again, so the police try to place him under arrest. That is when things got physical. The doctor winds up sprayed with pepper spray and arrested.
He then gives us a quote that is our dumbest comment of the weekend, and the title of this post: “You’re treating me like a black person.” That infuriated members of the New York city SJW community, because they are the only ones permitted to play the race card.
“It’s clear that Dr. Epstein stood firmly in his privilege, taunting the officers,” said David J. Johns, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition. “He was condescending. He was rude. Those are all things that black people could never think to do to a police officer and remain standing and or breathing.”
