Here’s what happened…
A woman was brutally and forcibly removed by US police officers from a Southwest Airlines flight leaving from Baltimore to Los Angeles, the mistake she made was complaining about her allergies to pets as she was sitting near two dogs.
The woman who is believed to be a professor said to a flight attendant on board that she has a severe allergy to animals, she declined the offer to accept another flight the following day.
The pilot and Southwest employees spoke to her, she was asked to leave as a result, she declined and the Airline called the police and they asked her to leave.
This video clearly shows, yet again how disgusting, nasty and brutal, some of the US police can be to passengers on board flights, this woman was dragged, pushed and yelled at.

You can clearly hear she is distressed and says to the police “What are you doing?” she asks. “I will walk off. Don’t touch me!”
“All right, let’s walk. Let’s walk,” one of the police officer’s answers.
Concerned passengers can be heard saying, “that she is walking”
Bill Dumas, a film producer who took the video said: “She put up a pretty ferocious fight to not be removed from the plane.”
A spokesman for Southwest Airlines said: “We are disheartened by the way this situation unfolded and the customer’s removal by local law enforcement officers.”
They added: “In most cases, we can separate the animal from customer with an allergy.
“The onus is on the customer to tell us what their needs are.”
However, she did tell the airline what her needs were, and yet the airline wanted her removed, she was dragged, pushed and abused by the police.
