Who's right? The cops or the woman videotaping?

The radio crew played a clip on radio this morning showing a woman being arrested while she was taping police officers doing a traffic stop. Were they abusing their power or were the officers within their rights?

Watch the clip below to see what Glenn saw before giving his reaction:

According to The Blaze, “It should be noted that the officer does cite some things that the woman allegedly said before she started recording as part of the reason he felt unsafe. In his words, the woman seemed ‘very anti-police.’”

The Blaze also notes that she has a history of conflict with police and was previously arrested trying to block a home from foreclosure.

The guys were torn on whether or not the police officer was right to arrest her. While Stu felt that he was justified as police officers need to be able to control the situation around the, Pat felt that the woman was being reasonable and didn’t seem to be presenting a danger.

“ First of all, it's pitch black at night. You can't see what she's doing. At any point she could be a threat. She's standing five feet away from an ongoing police action,” Stu countered.

Glenn said that this should be judged by someone who has all the facts, but its clearly not illegal to videotape police officers.

Glenn even brought in Joe, his right hand and counsel, for his input.

“ Joe, do the police have a right to tell you, you cannot videotape on your own property?” Glenn asked.

“Yes and no. I mean, they afford the law protects them to make judgments for themselves and if the police officers feel that the situation is becoming unsafe because someone is videotaping them, they have the right to say stop,” Joe said.

“I will never second guess a police officer when they feel unsafe. I don't second guess them when they've discharged their weapons. I let it go through the system. You're not the one standing there in danger. You're not the one who has to put a Kevlar vest on every day,” Glenn said.

“With that being said, the first thing you say to protect yourself in a legal world today correct me if I'm wrong, counselor is I feel unsafe. I feel threatened here. You say that immediately because if it's being if it's on tape, you automatically get a whole new range of leeway, correct?”

“You're exactly right and so when the police officers comes out and says, look, I feel threatened or I feel unsafe, he's basically triggering his range of options now. So he's elevated it from this threat level to this level and he has more leeway then to act,” Joe explained.

“And just to be fair here, she's doing the same thing. She keeps saying over and over again about, she keeps stating her rights over and over again, she keeps saying I'm on my own property. It doesn't appear that she is at the beginning. She knows all of her rights as a protestor. She knows all of her rights as you know, I'm adding this context because I think it's important. This is from the MSNBC story: I Team 10 has learned she's no stranger to police. She was arrested in March with a group of others who tried to block a home on Ravenwood avenue from foreclosure. She's seemingly a professional protestor,” Stu said.

Glenn said that while he always would side with a police officer, he does have concerns about this type of action leading to a slippery slope.

“Although I will say this, you know. Apart from the slippery slope that this seems to be, I'd be pissed off if a cop is telling me to get off my own lawn and telling me to go in my house,” Pat said.

“Now let's add six months or a year to the timeline of pensions and unions and civil unrest. And let's now see exactly what we're brewing here. We've got to be very clear on what rights you have. I am a huge supporter of the police. I will stand with my local police every step of the way, as long as they stand with the Constitution. And I they have. I have no problem with any of the activity that has happened so far, but the star field is rolling the other way,” Glenn said.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
