30 JULY 2020: CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

Arlinda Johns was removed from an American Airlines flight from Charlotte to St. Louis after becoming hostile towards crew who ordered her to cover her face mask, which bore the words ‘F*** 12’, with another mask. Johns complied with the order but became belligerent, causing the plane to return to the gate. ‘12’ is slang for ‘police’ and Johns alleges she supports the movement to abolish the police in the US.
