That is a pretty damn bad thing to do in a Muslim country. Expect executions.

Nah, the victims were all foreigners. Unbelievers.

They prosecute government employees who abuse their citizens?

Attempted murder investigation, suspect could be identified by post-partum evidence. As a parent of a daughter, I would happily submit myself to a genital investigation if I was in the area where a baby was dumped. The fact is that the crime was so heinous that a little genital investigation of the immediate bystanders is nothing in comparison to justice for the baby.

"As a father of a daughter, I could only shudder at the thought that anyone would, Australian or otherwise, would be subjected to that," he said.

I'll never understand why people feel the need to highlight their personal connection to justify bare minimum empathy.

> Qatar's Government Communication Office (GCO) said on Wednesday that airport authorities took action after a newborn baby girl was "found in a trash can, concealed in a plastic bag and buried under garbage", in an apparent attempt to kill her.
> "This egregious and life-threatening violation of the law triggered an immediate search for the parents, including on flights in the vicinity of where the newborn was found."
So this seems like probably the dumbest way they could have handled the situation, but I suspect no one really has an SOP for this sort of event.  The article doesn't mention if they found the parents, so I'm assuming their approach didn't even work.

So you don't actually know what's going on in the story, but still managed to cram in a "MURIKA BAD." Good for you, sport.

How come as a father of a daughter he couldn't empathize with the child left for dead rather than the adults who had their vaginas looked at?

One of those things is not like the other. By any means. You have to be pretty entitled to be comparing the murder of a baby to a glance of a vagina.

Well, depending on the country, sure they can, and they did. And now they'll manage the diplomatic fallout by throwing a couple of nobodies to their own court system, and everyone will move on.

You would happily submit to genital investigation for no reason at all? Because no reason was given before and during the act. You're okay with being pulled off a plane, told to remove your underwear and spread. Because someone in authority said so.

But when I do it without even being asked, it's all "put your pants back on" and "you're coming with us, sir".

There is no excuse for subjecting someone to a medical procedure without their consent. Even if the authorities were dead set on the "check each woman of childbearing age" tactic, they didn't need to perform gynecological exams. Do you know what a woman who gave birth a few hours ago isn't going to be able to do? Burpees. Much faster screening pr

Oh, it will still make the news, but it will be as an oddity rather than an outrage.

There ya go. Funny, though, how many people have tolerant, open-minded, "we're all basically the same" attitudes towards oppressive places (especially when they have financial incentive to do so)... right up until the moment the police get ahold of them.

Problem:  Pregnant woman passes through Doha Airport, gives birth unseen, ditches baby in dumpster, leaves without anyone noticing pregnant woman is no longer pregnant.

Solution: Check every woman who passed through the airport at that time to see if any had given birth recently.

Okay, not exactly the most respectful-of-human-rights solution, but then, this was attempted infanticide we're dealing with.  I can't say I agree with what the Doha authorities did, but I do understand it.

Good. Now pretend you're an American and the 4th Amendment exists.

You can volunteer to flash your gash if you want. Others should have the right to refuse absent probable cause to go get a search warrant.

Every time you go through customs, your loved one is subject to a strip and cavity search (Hehehe, did I just score?).

Customs is one thing. You know the rules when dealing with customs, and they don't do it to *all* the women when they find drugs in a bathroom in the customs hall, so they?

Also, they generally do a X-Ray or can sit you in a cell until you have to poop it out.

Sitting on the plane on a departing flight is another matter entirely.

Nice false equivalence.

I am definitely in the camp that some cultural practices or governments are unbecoming and should be avoided.  Like Chinese Law, were they retry two Canadians in a form of hostage swap.

So the Qatari Minister of the Interior is investigating the illegal actions that some of his airport staff have taken in ministering to women's interiors? Isn't that a conflict of interest?
