Law Enforcement Officers and Security personnel of Bullshido: how would you drag a resisting middle-aged Asian doctor off a flight when your horribly mismanaged trash dump of an airline screws up and overbooks it so you need to make room for one of your disgruntled, underpaid employees?

Bonus points if you can do so without making him bleed all over the place.

Double bonus points if you can do so without it spreading all over social media like the time when you smashed a dude's guitar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Breaks_Guitars) or kicked women off for wearing yoga pants (http://money.cnn.com/2017/03/26/news/united-airlines-twitter-dress-code/index.html), or abused a disabled veteran and his service animal (https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ff0_1343067393&comments=1),

Triple bonus points if you can keep yourselves from looking like morons by letting him run back onto the plane somehow.

The major question I have about this is: why didn't they make the call on bumping passengers prior to boarding? I used to fly a lot and had regular instances where the crew would announce that they needed volunteers to move to the front or rear of the airplane to balance the bird for takeoff and landing, but never have I heard of an airline kicking passengers off a flight after it boarded for this reason. As to the officer, he has been placed on leave pending disciplinary actions last I checked.

Here is my answer to how to deal with this situation next time: Don't board passengers until you've bumped the ones you need to bump. Assuming you cannot do that for some bizarre and unforseen reason, don't say anytuing. Fake a mechanical problem to get all passengers off the plane and then bump the ones you need to bump. Or, you know, bump up your airline credit again. Honey > Vinegar. And offering 2-3k is certainly going to be cheaper than the inevitable lawsuit and PR beating United is going to be suffering.

Well yeah, but that doesn't take into account your company is run by piles of sentient garbage in man-suits and treat your customers like they're cattle.

Simple, the Dr. Stays and the employee waits and gets paid to wait.
But carrying dead weight is easy and if the Dr needs carried you definitely go full Ranger Roll carry method.

You will still get sued but the video looks dope in court.

That looks really cool, but just for shits and giggles can it be done on a plane??

Only in First Class where they have the isle and leg room for the roll.

I think the best way they could have handled it would have been to simply delay the departure until he was willing to leave on his own. After a couple hours of sitting in a motionless plane his fellow passengers would have made sure he left.
