Fiery 'This Isn't a Police State!': Judge Jeanine Rips United for Manhandling Passenger
Judge Jeainine Pirro is outraged at United Airlines for forcibly removing a passenger from an overbooked flight.
A disturbing video posted to Twitter on Sunday shows security officers dragging a bloodied man off a plane after he refused to give up his seat before takeoff.

On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Judge Jeanine said an airline doesn't have the right to bring in law enforcement to violently intervene in a civil dispute.
She said it's an "outrage" that a ticketed, seated passenger would be asked to get off a plane, let alone be made to do so with excessive force.
"They have no right to bloody that man up, no right at all," Judge Jeanine said. "This isn't a police state!"
She said if the forthcoming lawsuit were litigated in her courtroom, she would "definitely" side with the passenger.
