STRIP SEARCHES FOR MISDEMEANORS
SUPREME COURT: STRIP SEARCHES OK, EVEN FOR MINOR OFFENSES

"Siding with security needs over privacy rights, the Supreme Court ruled Monday that jailers may subject people arrested for minor offenses to invasive strip searches.


By a 5-4 vote, the court rejected a challenge from a New Jersey man who argued it's unconstitutional to force everyone to strip down for inspection. Albert Florence was arrested by a state trooper because of an error in the state's records that mistakenly said he was wanted on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid fine. Even if the warrant had been valid, failure to pay a fine is not a crime in New Jersey.

Florence was held for a week in two different jails before the charges were dropped. But at each jail, he was required to shower with delousing soap and undergo a strip search."

When they start strip searching for traffic offenses, I bet everyone will care...

Re: STRIP SEARCHES FOR MISDEMEANORS
I generally have no sympathy for criminals, but this is bad, bad news. There is abig difference in needing to strip search a known assclown who likes to hide things to kill you with and stip searching someone for what amounts to unpaid parking tickets.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787
