Troopers Indicted After Roadside Cavity Search Of Two Women
CBS DFW ^ | March 22, 2013 | Jack Fink

Posted on 03/23/2013 4:44:40 PM PDT by driftdiver

CBS-11 has learned two state troopers involved in a controversial roadside cavity search of two North Texas women have been indicted on criminal charges by a Dallas County Grand Jury.

CBS-11 has learned that one of the troopers, Kelley Helleson, who left the courthouse after testifying Friday, is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

She was seen on dashcam video searching the body cavities — front and back — of the two women along an exit ramp of the Bush Turnpike in Irving last summer.

The Texas Department of Public Safety fired Helleson.

CBS-11 has learned the other trooper in the case, David Farrell, is charged with theft after one of the women said her prescription bottle of the painkiller hydrocodone was missing after the search

It is nice to see that tyranny still gets punished. Talk to me in 20 years. Tyranny will be the order of the day. You will be lucky to ONLY get away with the cops giving you a roadside cavity search. Things will be much worse in 20 years.

No it was in the car, the male officer found it while the female officer was doing the cavity search. At least thats what I remember from the earlier stories.

What were these on that day? Both of them seemed to be on a crime spree and lost track of limits.

“CBS-11 has learned the other trooper in the case, David Farrell, is charged with theft after one of the women said her prescription bottle of the painkiller hydrocodone was missing after the search.

Farrell initially stopped the women after seeing them throw a cigarette out of their car window.””

Things will be much worse in 20 years.

Your optimism is admirable.

In TWO years, this nation will be unrecognizable.

Are you kidding? Reword the title of this thread and there will be scores of FReepers defending the behavior. The male cop in question smelled marijuana. There are plenty of FReepers who support the War on Drugs over all else, particularly freedom. Mention freedom on the wrong thread and I guarantee you will be accused of being a drug user.

Every bit of power that the left uses to round us up and send us to reeducation camps in a few years will have been in some way made possible by many on the right. Between the war on drugs and the war on terrorism, the socialists now have the infrastructure capable of enslaving all of us. All they need is a bit of gun control or at least support for gun control, and ... an event. Just one single event.

How do scum like this make it onto the police force int he first place? Is there no better screening method than whatever they are doing?

Or do just check the box that says “Yes I WILL be a jack-booted thug”?

As I said on another thread, put a fork in this nation. It's done.

So throwing a cigarette out the window will get you a cavity search on the side of the road according to these cops. I hope they go to jail where they won’t be treated too kindly by inmates who may do a little cavity searching of their own.

That was a disgusting sexual assault and I am so thankful they were prosecuted. Goooo Dallas!

The trial will be interesting to watch.

Wish some TSA pervs would get prosecuted.

Since when is a body cavity search justified after a “routine” traffic stop? For that matter - even it it wasn’t such a stop - wince when are full body cavity searches to be conducted on the side of the road? It’s not like they were all that far from a police station and/or jail facility.

Also - what probable cause did they have to search these women, especially THAT way in the first place? Inquiring minds want to know.

What amazes me is how someone can be so out of touch with reality, that they have a ZERO sense of boundaries, that they can go up to a stranger on the street and go places on their body without having any grasp that they are way beyond the limits of behavior in the setting and the situation.

Doug is spot-on with respect to how many FReepers defend the idiotic “War on Drugs”. It is even more stupid than the “War on Terrorism”.

He is not lying, and saying he is, is just profoundly clueless.

At least the complaint doesn't mention whether she rested both hands on the ladies shoulders during the cavity search.

Well I’ve never had one or done one officially, but its this officer took a gloved hand and inserted a finger(s) into the womens rectum and vagina.

Supposedly to determine if they had hidden drugs in those locations.
