I realize that the word ‘random’ technically is misused at least half the time people utter it, but this takes the cake:

United Airlines said on Monday that after nobody agreed to voluntarily give up their seats, airline representatives chose four passengers to leave the plane at random based on ticket class, frequent flier status and check-in time.

Yeah, just like the US chooses who to kill with a drone strike perfectly at random based on connections to known terrorists, extremist rhetoric on social media, and so on.

Still, I suppose assaulting a passenger on your aircraft is considerably worse than such linguistic barbarism.
