Baltimore, MD - A video is going viral which shows Maryland Transportation Authority Officers dragging a woman off of a plane as she resists their attempts to remove her (video below.)
The media is creating outrage by pushing the narrative that officers dragged her off because she had an allergy. However if you believe the woman's own statements, the officers were saving her life.
The incident occurred Tuesday as the woman, who identified herself as a professor (because she must have considered that to be relevant,) had booked a Southwest flight from Baltimore to Los Angeles, according to CBS8.
The woman saw a service dog on the plane and told the Southwest Airlines employees that the dog needed to be removed because she had a life-threatening allergy to dogs and she could die if she flew with the dog.
The woman was unable to produce any medical certificate backing her claim, and the employees tried to explain that she'd be denied boarding if she wasn't safely able to fly with animals on the plane.
Insistent that it was the service animal that needed to go, the woman refused to depart the plane, and the airline called the police to remove her from the life-threatening situation.
Three officers are pictured on the video trying to remove the woman as she resists. She could be seen looking at the camera phone and yelling "What are you doing," "Don't touch me," and "I'm a professor," as she refused to depart the plane.
Officers repeatedly ordered her to walk, as passengers screamed "She's walking," while the professor was standing still.
Despite the woman committing multiple crimes, she wasn't arrested.
Southwest then issued a statement apologizing to the entitled professor, saying, “We are disheartened by the way this situation unfolded and the Customer’s removal by local law enforcement officers. We publicly offer our apologies to this Customer for her experience and we will be contacting her directly to address her concerns.”
Please share the truth of this incident before it gets out of control. You can see the video below:
