"Screw this airline!"

An American Airlines passenger yelled that along with a chorus of "boos" as a woman was removed from a flight from Phoenix to Portland on Sunday.

But the crowd wasn't jeering at the passenger, they were upset at the flight attendant they felt unjustly kicked the woman off the plane.

In a video that surfaced online, the unidentified woman can be seen weeping as a female flight attendant informs her she must exit the plane. The incident started after a male attendant asked the woman to move seats, but she didn't hear him.

"You're so mean to me. I didn't do anything," the woman says.

American Airlines says the company is looking into the video. But you can't stop the rage of the Internet.

JetBlue, ever the customer-friendly airline, is making waves once again, after it booted an 18-month-old toddler whose name allegedly appeared on a no-fly list. The family believes they were profiled because of their Middle Eastern heritage and the Transportation Security Administration claims that the girl's name was never flagged. JetBlue offered the generic explanation/non-apology:

We are investigating this particular incident. We believe this was a computer glitch. Our crewmembers followed the appropriate protocols, and we apologize to the family involved in this unfortunate circumstance.

Florida courts continue to show a bass-akward way of dispensing justice -- 31-year-old Marissa Alexander has been sentenced to a 20-year bid for firing "a warning shot" to her husband, who was attacking her during a 2010 incident. Rep. Corrine Brown said the failure of the Stand Your Ground act is based on race:

How many times have they accepted Stand Your Ground if the person that was asking for it was black? You tell me.

Alexander next will appeal the court's decision, with Brown's aid.

In a gross display of injustice, enlisted rape victims have gone public in stating that the military branded them "crazy" and had them discharged. With a lawsuit pending and an upcoming report on CNN, this publicity will hopefully lead to a policy change or a public firing of military officials.
