A passenger being drunk is their own fault. If they're a threat or nuisance to other paying passengers - then it is within the airlines right to have that drunkard taken off the plane or restrained in some manner. Being told you need to leave the plane and not providing some other reasonable option is on the airline. Not a good comparison. Also, it's not paying the airline to be treated as nice or shitty as they want to treat you. As a customer/passenger, you have an amount of trust you're putting into the staff. They can say "You'll need to sit here", "fasten your seatbelt" or something like "No passengers allowed in the captains cabin." "Don't attempt to open the bay doors while in flight"... Well, some things are obvious and don't need to be said. All of those are WITHIN REASON. There was no reason to resort to violence towards a person that wasn't belligerent or making a scene... The only reason for the "scene" was the actions of the security personnel. He only gets a license to be an violent asshole because of his title, or some card in his wallet. That still doesn't make what happened right.

You speak of the passenger/customer acting like a "Spoiled Brat". Yes, he did first volunteer, but it wasn't made clear that he'd be late for something IMPORTANT. Had he known that he'd be late he wouldn't have volunteered to begin with. It's within his rights to change his mind. No exceptions. Why isn't the security person labeled as a "Spoiled Brat"? Or whoever it was that gave him the order to forcibly remove the passenger? Couldn't they find anyone else to get off the flight? Why aren't the staff members that had a priority over this passenger called "Spoiled Brats"?
