    I didn't see them obtain a warrant for Search and Seizure. I'd say that woman has an excellent case. Absolutely ludicrous actions by the officers.

    I dunno i've been down that road before. Not the same situation but it's surprising how little respect you get from the legal system if your going up against the police. I'd say she'll get justice though if they really tried to do a cavity search. Sounds like sexual assault to me if the cop had no warrant or at least seriously probable cause. I don't trust the police.

    @Fishbone345 yeah that's disgusting. That only reinforces my deep felt belief that police do not respect full compliance. I don't tolerate being disrespected by knuckle dragging cops. They thrive on fear just like common streat thugs That literally makes me sick to my stomach, and I wasn't involved. I wouldn't have been smacking my gum i'd have been smacking something else. You oughta look up Policing for Profit in Tennessee. I wish they would do and article about that on here sometime. It's starting to get national attention. The cops have literally been confiscating peoples personal property without due process or even credible suspicion.

    @Calfkiller "The cops have literally been confiscating peoples personal property without due process or even credible suspicion."
    I believe it. Hell, we got NDAA 12, the Patriot Act and the TSA federally, no reason to think that sort of thing isn't beginning with the states as well.

    @Fishbone345 Oh if youre interested Google 'policing for profit in TN' should show you Officer Larry Bates of Monterey TN. He took 20,000 dollars off a guy from New Jersey that was headed west bound on I-40 headed to Nashville to buy a car he had bid on, on Ebay. They took the money for no reason as the man had proof he had been bidding on a car. The only reason EVER given was that 20 years prior he had been acquitted of a simple possession charge. Not a pre or judicial diversion, he was found not freaking guilty. That same cop came to my house with a guy (rumored to be a coke dealer, and indicted for the sale of cocaine 6 months later) and basically coerced me out of a 400 dollar set of used mud tires. My options were miss work which I had to be at in two hours or go to jail for receiving stolen property. Which was false as the person I bought the tires off of apparently owed 30.00 to the guy saying we had stolen them off of him. Bah!!! My pulse is going up. Look it up if your interested.

    Sounds like the Patriot Act is doing a very good job violating our freedoms. It will only get worse if we let it. Unless we stand up for our rights, we will continue to lose them more and more for our protection (sarcasm). I hope they fire the cops involved and get a big settlement out of it. Another fine example of our law enforcement agents exceding the law for whatever reason they choose. They are there to set an example of good behavior, not use their position for their own wants or needs.

    No, this was unconstitutional and completely improper. If the trooper thought he smelled pot, he had the right to search their car, period. Calling in a female trooper and subjecting these women to roadside cavity searches was so far out of line that IMO both of these officers should be punished with, at the least, the loss of their jobs. This wasn't a legal search, it was a personal assault.

    @WilliamWallace - Not where I live it isn't. You cannot search my person, you cannot even search my handbag without probable cause or my permission, and claiming you smell something is not probable cause. You certainly cannot cavity search me by the side of the freakin' road.

    It seems like an on-site body cavity search is a bit extreme for what might have turned out to be a Class B misdemeanor for marijuana possession. I would consider it unreasonable search and seizure.

    Troopers are wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Just the subjecting of these women to the unsantiary conditions of anal search and vagina search and then the same for the other woman using same gloves with the mixing of fecal matter with vagina of one and mixing it with the other woman's vagina and fecal matter is hideous.

    These women should be unrelenting in making sure these two officers are fired and they and the state of Texas should be held liable for damages in the amount of several millions of dollars. This kind of behavior by law-enforcement should NEVER be tolerated and should meet with swift and sure justice whenever it does.

    I was going to mention the same thing. At the very least, this illustrates the lack of proper hygiene training when it comes to these searches.

    Nothing unconstitutional in the search and the troopers had probable cause. The females also gave consent. End of discussion. Scares ms there are broads like this in the world but thanks for identifying them so my family can steer very very clear of them.
  • #72

    And after all was done, they were ticketed for...littering. You think a roadside cavity search is justified for such an infraction? Would you be singing a different tune if such happened to a woman in your family?
  • #76
    !
    Yeah horrible women smoking and throwing their cigarette butts out the window, I hope you steer clear of everyone who does such horrendous acts. They never gave consent they were never asked if they allowed the search the officer just did it... I'd like to see where you think they gave consent. They submitted but never gave consent, if they had not submitted they would have been thrown on the ground, handcuffed and then arrested for "resisting arrest" because they did not submit to the search of their anus and vagina because the officer "thought" he smelt marijuana, the most dangerous drug in the world, so dangerous you can fit enough in your anal sphincter and/or vaginal canal to compete against Mexican drug cartels so the only logical thing to do would be stick a finger up both anus and vagina to find this drug that causes people to die from using it everyday.

    @RoyFloyd actually I wouldn't. I expect my family members to obey the law, not dismiss it as, "oh it's just a butt" mentality. The officers acted professionally and did their jobs.

    @Libertyiskey well. you have to watch the unedited version. And they did give consent. If you watch the unedited version below, you will notice he says at 2:22 that he has a female trooper down the road and she will come down and check further and the female laughingly says ok. That is the consent. No civil rights violation occured.

  • #94

    @RoyFloyd And just so we are clear, I would expect the women folk of my family to comply with instructions of the authorities. You must be one of those question authority types.

    Don't call 911 when your house catches fire or when you are being robbed, you will only whine because they didn't protect you from yourself fast enough.

    Shocked that cops would tarnish the badge with a sick stunt like this, reacting in a manner all out of proportion to the alleged crime. WTF is the urgency that a cavity search must be performed roadside for someone that threw a cigarette out a window of a vehicle that purportedly smells like weed? You'd think they'd pulled over Hitler. On the other hand I'm pleasantly surprised that the dashboard cam rendered evidence for the what will hopefully be judgement against the thugs. Nearby video cams and cell phones have a way of getting turned off or smashed, evidence being lost, when cops decide to go rogue.

    Oh look more pigs. Overstepping their boundaries. I hope their sued for everything they got, if you infringe on peoples right to privacy, you should have everything taken from you. I feel bad for these women, something they will never forget.

    Though I don't agree with the searches (and I was "searched" once 40 years ago) without a warrant, your alternative really sucks. Refusal of searches or DUI tests result in you being arrested (probable cause) and car towed and impounded while they get the warrant. Means you might spend the night in jail and you have to pay tow/impound fees for your rights. And, in the mean time, they "think" of additional charges to tack on while they wait for that warrant. Again, I don't agree with the searches without a warrant, but, your alternative really sucks.

    @stepped_in_it - just because the law says they can do something doesn't mean it's 'constitutional'. And they have to get that warrant signed within a certain amount of time once pulled over. I also know my laws, I was asked to have my vehicle searched recently, whenever I got out of my truck I locked the door and threw my key in my pocket. stupid ass pig tried to go in my pocket and I told him multiple times 'am I being detained, if not im free to go'. He decided he was a Badass and gonna try to look tough before someone else arrived. He put me in cuffs and took the key out my pocket. He didn't know his laws to well. He also didn't know my Uncle was a major at the department, he was suspended and demoted.

    @kirbstomp1 - the 2 cops that have arrested me have been fired or demoted due to my actions afterwards. which makes me think, if this has happened to me 2 out of 2 times, how many people don't fight their arrest and what happened then get screwed by the system. I refuse to be pushed around and bullied by someone with a badge. They are nothing more that government thugs that do good to keep the people on their side. Same reason hells angels have charity events.

    Ought to be a couple of cops in the unemployment lines over this. And you can bet there will be a civil suit settlement. This is just unbelievable.

    no , road side searches are UnConstituional you need to eather have proballe casue or a woorent fromm the Courts before you can check any one and if she was checked at some check point , the only way that they can deem it Constititional ligaly is if the sercucmstances state that thoes cops had a worrent as for now I think that this is a pendig case and if she was whrongfully shearch then I whould agrue that she did the right thing by sueing
  • #164

    Absolutely not! Or, it better not be! If this is ever deemed constitutional behavior then it is time for a revamping of our courts and government.

    Unsanitary? Some person's hygiene is beyond reasonable. Unless the police are given explicit instructions on proper aseptic technique and infection control it's unlikely that the Center for Disease Control will give the police guidelines.

    It's STILL a outrage. However unless you have enough inner strength to litigate and follow though they will not be 'constitutional'.

    Cavity searches in public is unreasonable. Women are given special treatment sometimes- as men are randomly strip searched when a reasonable cause exists.

    This is just so wrong and disgusting. I feel so sorry for this women. It had to be embarassing as cars came by watching. I think she should sue and they pay for conseling. Plus the police of this incident apologize.
  • #159

    Nope. the officers and whatever idiot was supposed to be in charge should be convicted of a felony and barred from service as a peace officer.

    Not in the Commonwealth of Virginia! Not anywhere inside the United States. I hope these women not only receive punitive damages, but that both of these officers are at the very least charged with assault and dereliction of duty. What an obscene abuse of power.
