This is an amazing story - you will find it unbelievable that such a thing can happen in the United States.
Marilyn Parver, a 56 year old grandmother, was taken off a jetBlue flight in handcuffs! Because she would not delete a video she took of an altercation on the flight. As if the jetBlue crew wasn't bad enough, she was then manhandled by police officers at the airport - she is just over five feet tall - buy four officers who met her on the plane, put her in handcuffs only to notice the images she took were not a problem. She was then re-arrested when she refused to delete the images at the request of an unnamed jetBlue official. Imagine that; re-arrested after they decided her images were no problem.
Who gave airline officials such power? What is going on here? A very disturbing story. Hello, is this America - land of the free?
JetBlue offered the following response: “Upon JetBlue’s initial investigation, we disagree with the customer's version of the story. The customer was removed from the plane after demonstrating an unwillingness to follow crew member instructions. We can offer no other information at this time.”
