Strip searches, which Wisconsin state law defines as searching "a detained person's genitals, pubic area, buttock or anus, or a detained female person's breast," can only be performed by a doctor, physician's assistant or registered nurse. The state law requires written permission before a strip search is conducted, unless there's probable cause to believe the suspect is hiding a weapon.

It's illegal to conduct a body cavity search outside, where people other than the one conducting the search could see it taking place.

The department's internal investigation will determine whether searches violated department policy, state law, or both.


i hate how the police public relations department always phrases things this way. "we will determine whether or not the law was broken." huh?

if the news article is correct about what the law is, than you don't have to "determine" anything. if they did strip searches without a doctor and written permission, then that is against the law. you don't have to do an "investigation" to "determine" if it broke the law. you already know whether or not those things are against the law, and if they are against the law then i sure as hell hope they are also against police department policy.

if they actually went so far as to take away the cops' badges then that is pretty damn serious and those allegations must be pretty damn convincing.

Innocent until proven guilty applies to cops as well, regardless of evidence. Investigate, then bring him to court if called for, THEN say one way or another. Stating things in a neutral fashion beforehand makes perfect sense to me.

I want to start talking about police abuse but with a name like that it's pretty much given. Either was either that or become a porn star.

Milwaukee PD (and the Sheriff's Dept. for that matter) have always kind of lived by their own rules here. It usually takes efforts like this to get them to redraw the line and get their people back behind it. That said, I'd be pretty apprehensive if I worked the north side ghetto or the south side barrio too.

Interesting, innit? I always thought courts did that. Of course, what they really mean here is "We will let the DA know if we are going to permit her/him to prosecute this case", because the cops pretty much decide that. If the DA starts getting uppity and doing the job on his own, they quit cooperating.

That's why there needs to be a prosecutory authority for cops for which job success doesn't depend on their cooperation. If a DA starts putting cops away, the cops quit playing on other cases and the DA is a failure. Ok, remove that from the DA's office. Make a cop prosecutor position that's judged by number of cops put away. A quota, if you will.

I'm all for a stop, question, strip search policy, even for private citizens. Trayvon would still be alive if he knew that he was obligated to stop and allow George to strip search him. Finding nothing, he could've just walked away without incident. It's our lax laws that killed that poor boy, not Mr. Zimmerman.

"The senior constable, who went by the unpropitious name of George Smith and who had searched him, looked disgusted. A notorious old hand at the searching of suspects, he was known to any who had 'passed through his hands', as 'The Reamer', for he would delight in prodding his victims. Two great sausage-like fingers with fingernails grown long and filed sharp as a mandolin player's thumb entered their rear passage with a jabbing and stabbing that left them bleeding for days.

'Yer full o' shiat, Ikey! But clean o' contraband!' he'd exclaimed in a booming voice, much to the delight of the constables who were holding down the screaming, blubbing Ikey with his breeches pulled down below his skinny white thighs.


The Potato Factory by Bryce Courtenay.

/first book in the trilogy is truly excellent, the other two are just OK
//Bryce Courtenay has an incredible talent for building and building and building suspense and then not knowing what the hell to do with it and ending a book abruptly in an incredibly clumsy and unsatisfying manner, which is frustrating given how excellent the main body of each book is

"Because improper tactics were used to find the cocaine, the drug dealing charge against Cossi's client was thrown out, The Journal Sentinel reported."

All of these searches were done on males so no vagina's were harmed in this.

Plus has anyone ever been to Milwaukee? .

There was a house for sale near me by realtor Virginia Smith. Except the 'for sale' sign had a spelling error. In big letters it read:

For Sale
Virgina Smith
Realtor

That house must have been up for sale for a year, cause that sign was up there forever like that. Got a lot of attention, though.

It also buys the police some time so that the event will be forgotten by the public and swept under the carpet.

OTOH, we have occasionally reminded vendors that if they make us an offer we don't like, we DO have the authority to go through their belongings and strip search them.

In general, I'm kidding when I tell them that. Mostly.

//"two by two, hands of blue" refers to ME when you piss me off enough, gentlemen. Perhaps you may want to reconsider your development system pricing structure.

John Birdsall, a Milwaukee defense attorney, said that if the claims are true, police are abusing their authority.

if the article is even 50% factual the claims are true.

Here is what caught my attention
"Strip searches, which Wisconsin state law defines as searching "a detained person's genitals, pubic area, buttock or anus, or a detained female person's breast," can only be performed by a doctor, physician's assistant or registered nurse."

So after years of hard work, college then med school, how would you like it if the only job you could land was searching hot sweaty asses for contraband?

"When I buy my wife, um, at the start she was cook good and her vagnini work well and she strong on plow. But after 3 years when she was 15 then she become weak, her voice become deep, Borat Borat, she receive hair on chest and her vagnini hang like sleeve of wizard."

An improper strip search carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, according to Wisconsin law.

Wow, that's light. A goldmine of a loophole for pervs, actually.

If I was a lawyer, I'd advise all my clients habitually getting accused of diddling little girls and boys to call it a "strip search". Limits the consequences quite a bit. Maybe the Catholic church could specify an illegal strip search as a traditional altarboy ritual.

Wisconsin has three strikes for sex offenders. Then they ship you to a magical place called The Sand Ridge Rehabilitation Facility out in the boonies (it's actually four miles from my parent's house) where you get to sit until you die.

You bet I do. You sell me a development system for your parts for $25K, then tell me you won't license us to use the part unless we agree to design it into a certain number of systems, and we'll go looking for that RMA authorization just past your sigmoid colon.
