A Minnesota woman was one of several rioters caught on video as they were kicked off flights after being identified as a member of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building last week.
Melody Black was previously identified as a Trump supporter at rallies in Minnesota. She was forcibly removed from a Delta flight from Washington D.C. to Minneapolis
Black, was one of many identified as alleged Capitol rioters who were kicked off flights or arrested at airports around the nation this weekend.
This is the latest repercussion to face a Capitol rioter. A Chicago woman was fired from her job as a Realtor, and a tattoo artist said his shop was vandalized after it was known he had attended. The man who posted what many saw as arrogant photos of himself with his feet propped up on Nancy Pelosi's desk was arrested as the FBI urges people to come forward with information about others who joined the stampede so they can face charges.
Under an executive order signed by Trump himself, rioters could face 10 years in prison for participating in the event.
Meanwhile, the head of the union for flight attendants is calling for everyone who participated to be banned from flying back to their point of origin. The Washington Post reported that in a statement, Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, condemned the “mob mentality behavior” on flights to the D.C. area on Tuesday that included passengers heckling Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Lindsay Graham, and getting into shouting matches.
A fight broke out on one American Airlines flight when a passenger projected an image of Donald Trump from his phone into the plane.
