Video of a police officer dragging an elderly woman from a car has been causing quite the stir on the Internet, and opinion has been sharply divided.
Lynn Bedford, 77, of Cleburne, Texas, was arrested by Sgt. Gene Geheb after he stopped her for speeding. She told him that she had a bladder infection, then refused to hand over ID or to exit the vehicle when ordered to. After she refused to comply several times, the officer bodily removed her from her car, and the whole thing was caught on tape.
So was he right to do it?
Kathie Lee and Hoda were divided. KLG insisted that she could have gotten out nicely without incident, if she'd only listened to the officer's multiple directives to do so. But Hoda's stance was firm: "Granny had a urinary tract infection." And when you gotta go, you gotta go.
KLG wasn't convinced. "I want to know whether or not, when he pulled her out of the car, she peed her pants." That's some detective work there.
"You're sick," said Hoda.
Have you seen the video? What do you think? Was the officer justified, or should he have let her go to answer nature's call? To pee or not to pee, that is the question. Tell us in the comments below and vote in our poll.
