A body cavity search is a form of rape.

LEO's use it more to punish, humiliate and control than anything else.

It use should be illegal or at the very least seriously curtailed.

Hope these ladies sue the hell out of these shiat-for-brains Texas cops and make their points heard.

"I don't know if I can trust the cops anymore"

I can't imagine why a black person in Texas would have EVER trusted the cops.

These guys should be charged with sexual assault, but that will obviously never happen. At the VERY least, they should never work in law enforcement again.

China White Tea: js34603: WTF is wrong with cops like this? You KNOW you are on tape jackasses, why do anything that's going to bite you in the ass later when people see the tape? So farking dumb.

Well, yes.

Smart people generally don't become cops.  Mouth-breathing farktards who would never be trusted with an ounce of authority in any other situation become cops.


Same as the military in general(science/technology rich air force aside, which is what I did).  Too much actual work for smart people, too much risk for smart people, and not enough pay.  Maybe if these jobs paid better and/or promoted/hired based on merit/skills instead of the only promote from within based on seniority.

The way the system is currently set up, you've got to be either:
A. Desperate.  It's stable money and they'll take just about anyone.
B. Devoted to purpose.  Sort of a rare zealotic bird, especially for cops because corruption tends to spread.
C. Aggressive.  The job comes with power and it's own "perks".

A lot of cross over between A and B of course, and between A and C, but I think you get the general idea.  Doesn't help matters that they're under a microscope of everyone, breeds animosity in a self sustaining cycle.

It's like the priesthood and teaching.  It's one of those jobs where you have to be a little bit off in one way or another.  An obvious choice for anyone in the C, the one's seeking the job to pursue another agenda.(kiddy diddling for the other two, still "power" positions(met some mean ass teachers in my day, and catholicism is full of fire and brimstone punishment as well))

Nothing wrong with that per se, but it could use a lot of tuning to weed out the bad ones for fear of getting caught.  We live in a society where personal responsibility is at a very very low to non-existent concept.

It's never our fault.  Never.  That is a society wide flaw, this is just how it manifests in those jobs.  Corporations get bail outs, able bodied people live for decades on welfare, the RIAA with it's roots in organized crime seek to make (infinity) money from single performances...of other people.(and convinced a large part of the populace that it's legitimate).  I could go on, but I think I'm about sick from thinking about it too much.

So, I'm going to go take a smoke break and maybe play angry birds until I forget about it, and thereby contribute to the problem like 99.9% of the "civilized" world does, and then look up in dismay when something else bad happens and think, "Who was stupid enough to let that go on?!?"

Even though I know the answer is "all of us", it will continue to amaze me.

I personally know a lot of cops. 100+, at least. While that's a very broad and demeaning statement you made, I find that I can't argue with it. Out of those 100+, of the top of my head I can think of only one (a police chief, if it matters) where I'm certain and maybe 4-ish (one DPS and the rest SO) where I'm kinda sorta sure that they don't fit that description.

They all, of course, think they're among the smartest and most trustworthy people to grace the planet, and all but those noted have the stereotypical 'holier than thou - obey mah authoriteh' attitude when interacting with the non-LEO public.

That's not actually what the article says. It says there was a used blunt "under the back seat" which is neither in plain view nor readily accessible from the front seat.

Even if the situation you describe existed I'm not sure how "signs of previous drug use" leads logically to a side-of-the-road cavity search. Do people who previously used drugs often hide something that poses an eminent threat to the officers in their body cavities? Do people who have previously used drugs have the ability to destroy evidence simply by holding it in a body cavity for a while? If not, why the urgency?

MFAWG: To be fair, it turns out that the kid took a shot at the cop in question. That makes it understandable as to why he wouldn't be getting much sympathy around the courthouse.


Perhaps, but the cop should, at the least, no longer be a cop.  There are standards to be met.  Once the kid's in custody the proper forum is the court.

My point remains:  Behavior such as that tends to expand over time.  It's why I say it's more about bad departments - they don't fix/eliminate bad starting cops, who become badder slightly older cops.  Next thing you know they're executing people in the streets.

Aigoo: This isn't the taxpayers' responsibility--it's those officers' and their agency's.


Everything else I agree with, but that quote, if nothing else it's misleading.You were in the service and don't grasp the concept of "freedom is not free"?

In a government of, by, and for the people, the people gave them the responsibility. It is the citizen's duty to police those above them. Our government, to include law enforcement, is not benevolent, not to be trusted or worshipped.  When it fails, and it has, does, and will always, it falls to us to repair it.

Power corrupts.   This is why we have representatives and senators and their like, the ability to protest and campaign for change, and even the ability to revolt, should it come to that.

Our forefathers knew all of that.  They understood the balance of power needed to stave off tyranny.  That is why we have the right to bear arms, and all of the options listed above, and I'm sure more that I cannot think of at the moment.

Yes, if they falter they need to be taken to task.  The only party that can do that is citizens themselves, by voice or by muscle.  They work for us, not the other way around.  They were not meant to be the nanny or father figure that people have allowed them to become.  Society itself has faltered in that regard. It is/was our responsibility, whether we like it or not.  Pretending otherwise is an exercise in rationalizing laziness.

omeganuepsilon: Enemabag Jones: Can a court say that if a police officer wants a bra shaken out, a look below the waistline, or a good look inside a personal orifice, then it has to be done inside controlled facilities.

It cannot be done in the field.  Anyone cop doing this in the field will go to jail and loose their job.

Waistbands, pockets, bras( the wearer shaking it out with our actually revealing anything, imo, is fine), and a general out of garment pat down always need to be done for weaponry in the case of an arrestable offense, in my opinion. (not simple speeding/littering, etc)

Cavity/strip searches can wait until processing at the station.


In basic training, we had some brass or ammo or something go missing. A female drill did a pat down of all of us--including our bras (we had to remove our BDU tops and stand there in our tee shirts)--and was very embarrassed and apologetic about it, especially when she had to feel along the entire bottom of some bras and ask out loud if some of us were wearing underwires. She did not do a cavity search, but it definitely wasn't a picnic with one female drill and half a dozen male drills plus half a dozen male range control standing there watching.

But still, it's not hard to be polite and apologetic and show some class and compassion...which didn't happen in these girls' case. They had the right to tell the cops, "you can wait until there is a lawyer present." As soldiers, we did not have that right, and we were still treated with more dignity (the first sergeant and commander--both men, both Ranger-tab qualified apologized to us back at the company, and stated that it was procedure as set down by the Brigade Commander, and that there hadn't been a choice but to physically pat down all 200 of us) and respect without our Constitutional rights than these girls were with theirs. These cops and their supervisors all need to be fired and they need to be held personally liable for their actions and lose everything they have. This isn't the taxpayers' responsibility--it's those officers' and their agency's.

Two Irving women who said they were subjected to "humiliating and shamefully embarrassing" body cavity searches by a state trooper are set to receive a $185,000 settlement in a federal civil rights lawsuit.

Not sure if serious.  There's no reason to do a cavity search on the side of the road.  If the suspects won't produce the contraband on their own, just take them down to the jail and do the cavity search in private.  Then charge them with bringing drugs into the jail.  It's win-win for the cops.  I don't see any advantage to doing a strip search on the side of the road.  They don't get to add an extra charge and they run the risk of ending up in their current situation.  There's just no benefit.
