So refusing to be removed is a problem that justifies removal? There's an interesting line of reasoning. That is not a line of reasoning you want to allow your police. Interesting combination with the next step - bashing his face on the armrest and dragging him down the aisle of an airplane with unknown, unevaluated, and untreated injuries. So they can do that to somebody for refusing to be removed, and no other reason? Is that how injured passengers are usually removed from an airplane? I would have expected first aid to be rendered prior to the dragging part, myself. My Boy Scout First Aid manual clearly warns against moving injured people without first evaluating their injuries. And semi-conscious people are normally transported via stretcher, or wheelchair, in the circumstances familiar to me.
