Just wondering how common it is for prisoners to be transported on commercial flights.
On our recent trip we were waiting to board a flight from Anchorage to Seattle when boarding was halted and four guys marched straight up to the boarding door. I could hear but not see chains. One of the men was a police officer and was armed. I later discovered the police officer did not travel.
I felt sorry for the prisoner, it must have been humiliating for him, but who knows what he did or why he was being transported.
So maybe I shouldn't have felt sorry.
It did make me nervous to have a prisoner onboard, something I'd never encountered before. Is this a regular occurrence?
