No, thank the Lord..but this guy was arrested for a traffic fine he had paid years ago and strip searched! not once..but twice.
From the top of the hour news, the twice was because he was brought into two different jails. I don’t like this, but if you are arrested the jailers have to be able to keep contraband out of jails.
The solution here is to:
1. Make a bunch fewer laws. We have way too many laws to run a foul of in this country.
2. Make the agency that screwed up and had him arrested pay him damages so huge that the agency is in danger of not being able to perform its function. Since they apparently can not now perform their function anyway, perhaps he should get half their budget.
He may have been undeserving of the treatment, but it's pretty standard procedure.
Has been for hundreds of years. You control access to weapons and such among prisoners this way.
I'm not inclined to outrage over this. It's common and practical and logical.
It does not matter about the circumstances, if you're going into the jail population you gotta be searched.
