At last. Finally. Well, I must say it’s been years since it’s happened in front of anybody but my husband. So I’ve decided to drive around until I get pulled over. And then, I can be strip searched! I am so excited. I just can’t wait.
Really! The Supreme Court just decided I could be. And I don’t have to do anything at all. I can be pulled over if I don’t signal a turn, or if I don’t stop at a stop sign, or if I ship heroin from Coast to Coast. I can get pulled over if I didn’t do anything at all. Yup, it doesn’t matter a bit. It doesn’t matter whether I commit a misdemeanor or am a serial killer. Or a terrorist. It doesn’t matter if I haven’t done a thing! Those handsome guys can strip search me. And it’s OK, because I am a big CHIPS fan:
Wanna know what I’m talking about?
Apparently you didn’t hear about the Supreme Court’s latest ruling. By a 5-4 verdict the Supreme Court decided that anyone stopped by the police for any reason can be strip searched. Anyone at any time. Regardless of the charges against them. They can be hauled into the police station and told to drop ‘em and spread ‘em.
So, if you are stopped by a policeman/woman for any reason whatsoever, you can now be strip searched. For any reason at all. Or no reason at all. Even if you’re not the driver of the car. That was the situation with the subject of this ruling — he was a passenger.
Have you ever:
- Missed a stop sign?
- Exceeded the speed limit?
- Forgotten a parking ticket?
Do you have:
- A teen-age daughter?
- A teen-age son?
- A sense of personal privacy?
- A fear of standing naked in front of policemen/women?
I am SOOOOOOOOO glad everyone is protecting my liberties.
My liberty to stand naked in a jail for forgetting my turn signal.
