United Airlines forcibly removed a passenger because they Overbooked

OMG, did y'all hear about this? I guess security, cops or goons forcibly removed from the plane. Over the weekend, United Airlines asked for four volunteers to give up their seats, so four of the crew members could fly back. They were offering $800 vouchers to anyone, but no one volunteered, so airline officials chose four passengers to be removed from the flight.

And this is what happened

Three men grab the passenger and drags him by his arms toward the front of the plane. The poor man was knocked out by this incident.

The video quickly made its way around the internet and social media.

At first, United Airlines said:
"Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities."

Well, that didn't fly so the CEO responded
