2 Texas women sue over roadway body cavity search - VIDEO
klbj ^

Posted on 12/19/2012 2:35:09 PM PST by traumer

DALLAS (AP) - Two women have sued the Texas Department of Public Safety over a body cavity search by a female trooper captured by patrol car video along a Dallas-area highway.

The lawsuit says the July 13 search of 38-year-old Angel Dobbs and her 24-year-old niece, Ashley Dobbs, was unlawful. The Irving women complained to DPS.

DPS spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger on Tuesday declined comment on the lawsuit. Cesinger says results of a Texas Rangers inquiry were sent to the Dallas County district attorney's office. The dispute is expected to reach a grand jury next month.

The women say a male trooper told them he saw them throwing cigarette butts out a car window, questioned them about drugs and summoned a female trooper for a search.

The two women say no drugs were found. Click here for a video of the search.

Clearly Sexual Assault.

At the end you hear the poor Aunt, "You had finger up my butt and in my p*ssy."

...and on the side of the road at that.

Why wasn't a K-9 unit called if they suspected pot in the car or their persons?

Note that the female officer (at least on this edited video) never checks their pockets, she just checks their boobs and then fingers them. I wonder if she changed gloves....

Get ready to pay. Any jury who watches that video is going to start the bidding at $10 million.

The female cop put the same gloved finger she just had up the niece's butt into the butt and vagina of the aunt.

Even with the niece, she probed her butt and without changing cloves, probed her vagina.

I haven’t watched the full video, which is about an hour, but judging by the jumps in the editing and wht you can hear of the dialog, there are at least three people who need to be counselled into new careers: the original trooper — who may or may not have actually seen anything — called for a search instead of taking them into custody. If his probable cause was strong enough to call for a search, it was strong enough to call for an arrest, leading to a private location where a search could be conducted. Someone at dispatch, who sent a female LEO out to perform the search also needs to be fired, and the female officer herself, who made no objection whatsoever to this outrage, and who — again, at least on the basis of the edited video — did not even follow basic sanitary protocol.

Go here to complement a TxDPS Employee.

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/PublicInformation/commendEmpl.htm

From the Texas Department of Public Safety Website:

If you would like to commend an employee for their exceptional service or remarkable assistance, please be sure to include as much information as possible, including the employee’s name and how their service went above and beyond that you expected.

When we receive a commendation, we share it with the employee and their supervisor. A copy of the letter or email is placed in the employee’s personnel file. We also share the letter with agency employees.

Make it snarky.

No, she didn’t. Same pair of gloves for 2 women - up one woman’s poop chute and then straight into her niece’s birth canal. Intent to harm, I say. I can’t wait for this Dep’t. of Public Safety to be sued out of existence.

That is sexual assault and in full-view of everyone driving by. This should NOT be legal.

This is what the WOD has brought us. Where cops can publicly assault innocent women with impunity.

When they’re found innocent:

“OK. You can go.”

Why thank you, sir.

Only my husband and my doctor are permitted to touch me.

You're right on the cause of this being the War on Drugs [let the flames begin], but let's not forget that innocent men suffer as well.

I saw part of ‘I Survived’ where a woman was sexually tortured by a man. She was tied naked to the chair in the manager’s office of a fast food restaurant and the assault continued for hours. She managed to get the phone off the desk and called 911. When help arrived, she was naked and bleeding and the paramedics were going to untie her from the chair and transport her to the hospital. A female policeman stopped them dead in their tracks and said she had something to ask the victim. She leaned forward and asked, “Did he finish?” The paramedics immediately pushed forward and removed the victim.

While the victim was being interviewed for the show, you could tell the treatment from the policewoman was just as traumatic to her as the assault. Oh, and the policewoman lost her job.

I cannot begin to fathom the trauma that all the victims are going through by these female policemen.

"These cops should be hanged."

Jail time for "sexual assault", at a minimum, and COMPLETE RESPONSIBILITY PERSONALLY for all Legal fees, the multi-million-dollar mega-lawsuit that will (as always) be paid by TAXPAYERS, while the Assailant pays nothing.

She (the Trooper) should have ALL her assets confiscated, including her home, car(s), personal goods, etc. to make restitution, and all monies in bank accounts should go towards the fulfillment of the Settlement.

An earlier read on this story said there was not a change of glove, but that is just too fantastic to believe. It is surely against the law to fail to change gloves

That earlier report said one woman suffers with a cyst (hemorrhoid, possibly) and endured pain.

It’s just too much.

Indeed. How on earth did we become so complacent with our freedom as to allow another person to sexually molest us on the side of the road simply because they’re an law enforcement officer?

Well that part is easy.
We all got it from our parents.
A generation of parents that for some unknown reason actually thought that Law enforcement was there to protect the common citizen from bad guys. These days the cops, pimps, perverts, muggers, buggers, and low life in general can all safely be lumped together without exception. Former Colorado Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan makes a fine example.

After sticking her hand up the suspects crevice did the trooper lick the glove to see if it tasted like Marihuana? That’s what they do on TV.

Aside from the total illegality of a roadside body cavity search without a court order, the SOW_IN_A UNIFORM has the sanitary habits of a South Beach queer - or a Turd World witch doctor.

Note that the Sow first inserts her finger in her victim’s anus, then WITHOUT CHANGING GLOVES inserts her finger in her victim’s vagina.

Attention All COPSUCKERS!

Justify the abovementioned Sow’s actions.

That is all.

You will then be transported to the police department headquarters and allowed to call your attorney..So how long do you think you will you be sitting in the bull pen until your attorney arrives? Assuming you do have an attorney listed in your contacts section of your cell phone..........

Sometimes it's best to keep one's mouth shut then file charges later as these two did...........

This police state bullshit needs to come to a screaching halt.Yes. A few days ago the local Gestapo here in Wyoming stopped me , an old man on a bicycle who hasn't touched a drop of alcohol in many years and forced me to breathe into a breathalyser which he had radioed another squad car to bring to him. He wasted a half hour of my time and caused me to be late for an appointment. Police state harrassment is getting worse due in part to the war on drugs. Does not apply to Wyoming Highway Patrol. They are professional and polite.

This is beyond outrageous. I was wondering what these women could have said to avoid what happened. If they had said what you posted do you think those cops would have stopped?

My guess the women would have been handcuffed and the assault continued. This is scary stuff. I cannot fathom passively allowing myself being treated like that. How could those women stand there and take that trauma?

I take it I am one of the few, maybe the only poster, who will stand up for the cops.

The first officer obviously smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle and suspected the females were hiding their stash somewhere on their bodies. So he did the right thing and called for a female to search them.

I do fault him for not asking to search the car and for not requesting a drug dog be brought to the scene. Or at least we didn't see he did. The fact he did neither leads me to believe he had reason to suspect something else.

As with others I fault the female cop for not changing her gloves while doing her search. But to call her a lesbian is a bit over the top.

I lived in TX for years and always found its DPS troopers to be well trained and polite. Be mindful, folks, TX ain't WA or CO and is not tolerant of drugs of ANY kind, including weed. Moreover, the tape just shows so much and I really doubt the kibitzers on here know all the facts.

Ok, now you can flame be but I promise I will simply ignore it. So why bother? Lol

Jan the man set up a whole, systematic sexual abuse operation at the airports under the color of law. People let them get away with it.

We all know that perverts messing with your crotch will keep you safe from drugs and terrorism.
