This is quite disturbing — a passenger apparently gets upset about having to give up her contact lens cleaner to the TSA (which, as I’ve written on before, is itself an idiotic rule).  This results in her being tackled to the ground.


I can only see what’s on the video, but in my mind, there is absolutely no excuse for treating anyone like this, when it’s clear in the video that she wasn’t doing anything obviously threatening.  Police are (or should be) trained in managing difficult situations without resorting to this type of violence.
