Inmates must not be searched.
Children and grandparents at airports no problem!
We all pay a heavy price to buy votes for democrats.

(Don't retreat....just reload.)
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has defended strip searches as necessary for jail security, while working to improve the procedures.
No comment regarding the TSA is necessary.
even if they were detained for charges as minor as traffic violations.
And what crime are these people at airports being charged with?
These are American TAXPAYING CITIZENS who have rights against illegal searches and I can't think of a more blatant violation of the US Constitution in recent memory.

(Obama and the Dem Congress will spend $5 trillion every year of his presidency until they break US!)
Taxpayers are now going to pay $50 million to the Lawyers, and the Plaintiffs will each recieve a $10 off coupon towards their next parking ticket.
Is this a great country, or what?
What fine was given to the ACTUAL PARTIES (the cops who did the search)? Answer: NONE....they don't have deep pockets.

The supposed differential here is that supposedly airline passengers are voluntarily going through the strip searches, vs inmates who had no choice.
No one forces someone to get into a checkpoint line that has been set up between the entrance to the airport and the boarding ramps for airplanes, and apparently, revoking the voluntary aspect comes with a 11 thousand dollar fine.
Somehow, I don't think a judge is really going to be amused if this ever comes before a bench to decide.

“The many lawyers in the case will get $15 million of the settlement money, Driscoll said. The rest will go into the fund to compensate former detainees.”
Follow the money. Bet it doesn’t get to very many ‘former detainees’.

(Lame and ill-informed post)
Taxpayers must cover most of a $55.3 million settlement approved Tuesday by Cook County to compensate as many as 250,000 people who were strip searched at the county jail, often in mass lineups and even if they were detained for charges as minor as traffic violations.
Let me guess, every single person up to the county commissioners who was involved in this has lost their job and lost every iota of their pensions because of their misuse of power in the public arena.

The Cook County Jail. Just the right amount of wrong.

Obviously there's a difference between strip searching “the masses” while they're imprisoned and sexually humiliating “da man” in public. In prison, the individual has every right to demand that human dignity be paramount while in public da man deserves no respect and should be regularly reminded that human dignity isn't something to expect from representatives of the people. Those classified as being with “da man” have no grounds to expect that any humiliation or degradation is beyond the pale.
To ensure no one confuses members of one group with those of the other group, all those Holder specifies as being with “da man” are expected to wear white armbands with a big red target on them.

And it is undoubtedly a FACT that most of the plaintiffs really are CRIMINALS!! Yet law abiding citizens are strip searched by TSA every day!! Criminals could make a real killing if they just invested in plane tickets rather than screwdrivers!

So thats 1/3rd, about 5 million, for the lawyers...all 3 or 4 of them.
And 10 million for 250 thousand people, which comes to 40 bucks per person.

Well, I can barely wait for the settlemt resulting from the TSA strip searches.
Just because Congress or an Executive Order declares a felony to be suddenly a harmless requirement, doesn't make it so.
Last I heard, the S8upreme Court of the land is the next to last final authority.
We, the people (the people who actually work, pay taxes and actually suppport the government,) get the final word.

Some government obviously hack screws up and flaunts the system and we taxpayers get stuck with bill. We need to start seeing these individuals fired and lose pensions. Then they’ll make decisions that make sense instead of being used as a power play.
