United Airlines removes man by FORCE to make room for STAFF
A man was removed from a United Airlines flight yesterday because the Airline overbooked the flight and chose the man to involuntarily give up his seat.

It turns out the man is a medical doctor and the overbooking situation only happened to make room for United Airlines employees (not this flight's attendants, iirc) travel with the flight.

Under the intoxication of their authority, the man was injured by their use of force, and then somehow let back on the plane to travel again?

I discuss the qualified immunity implications and ask you some questions as well.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said in a statement that the aviation security officer who pulled the man from his seat was placed on leave Monday, "pending a thorough review of the situation,". "The incident on United Flight 3411 was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure and the actions are obviously not condoned by the department," the statement read.
