Jury finds stripper's rights were violated

More Detales Here

A stripper's constitutional rights were violated during a police search according to a verdict handed down by a jury in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque.

Dusenberry and others alleged they were forced to stand, kneel or lie down in scant garments while searched by police.

According to court documents, the lawsuit alleged the dancer's Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures and their Fourteenth Amendment rights to substantive and procedural due process

My Favorite part to this story is

Defense attorney Arlon Stoker said if strippers don't have rights, then none of us do


So it would appear the girls were not hiding concealed weapons under their G Strings and pasties...

Okay all joking aside I don’t know what happened here but I can guess... throw a couple of self righteous cops in a room full of strippers and they go B-movie on the ladies...

I can just picture how scared those girls were made to kneel and lay on the floor to be felt up under the threat of jail or worse. F'n great when the cops victimize the victims…

Way to go ladies. you took em to court and won the day... ya done good!

This is cool.

I wish there was more to the story though, I would like to know exactly what happened when the place was raided and why they were searched. The article is kind of scant. Either way +1 for the constitution and -1 for the police.

I'm not anti-cop just anti-jackboot.

Um...Er... I hate to break the news to you, but strippers are deffinately not ladies.

And most cops are douches.

What do expect when you put a hand full of Alpha Males in a room full of strippers.

Now for the Paul Harvey "rest of the story" view... from the original source.

www.daily-times.com...

The violation of constitutional rights charges would seem quite appropriate , especially given that the search warrant was for Alleged violations of the Liquor Control Act.


On March 2, 2006, Officer Glenn Slaughter executed a search warrant on the Phoenix Nightclub, based upon alleged violations of the New Mexico Liquor Control Act.


Guess they figured she might have been concealing jello shooters or something.


Dusenberry claims she was taken to the back room and strip-searched by female San Juan County Sheriff's deputies, who were called in to assist the state police, according to court records.



Strip searched during execution of a search warrant for business records!?

Attorneys for the plaintiffs argued there was no basis to order a strip search, saying it was outside the scope of the search warrant.
"The warrant was to search business records," Defense Attorney Joe Romero said.


Yeah. It seems they overstepped their bounds a bit on this one.

Okay that is good. I was wondering what the rest of the story is.

Sounds like this women might have had a past run-ins with the law and the had a grudge against her or something.

Thanks for posting that.

Um, this statement really expresses why the police need to be monitored by someone other than themselves. The police are hardly "Alpha Males", some are very good people, obviously the ones who did this search are not.

One of the requirements for police, used to be the willingness to help others in the community even at risk to themselves. Not..help themselves to others in the community. I just don't have anything nice to say about these police. I doubt there is a reprimand coming, but their really should be.

Not at all Canuck. Sexual harrasment is WRONG no matter who it happens to. That is a given. I was just saying that they shouldn't be called ladies thats all. Any female that rubs her privates on a man for money will never be a "lady" in my book.

It would be nice if the people that pay their salaries could do the monitoring. Ex. US.

That is a very close minded, and self righteous attitude. Let me breakdown the different types of strippers for you.

Single mothers trying to provide the best they can for their kids, since the man wasnt man enough to support the child.

Some of them are indeed trying to pay for various types of schooling, so they can move beyond stripping.

Some are also coke . skanks.

Some are money hungry whores.

Some or maybe now most are recent immigrants trying to save up money, not unlike many other immigrants did in the past and present. Just via a different method.


So for you to generalize strippers are not being ladies simply because they provide an in demand service that you may not appreciate is pretty ignorant in my opinion.

And for the record I dislike strip clubs because I think they are a waste of money. But they are legal and the people working there have every right as anyone else busting their butt in legitimate profession. As such they are supposed to be protected by the police and not violated.

Way to go.

Strippers 1
Rent-A-Cop 0

This is the kind of story I like to hear. Just because these women are in a profession that some frown upon does not make them any less human, or give them any less rights.

It's good that they fought this to the end and won their case. It won't change the attitude of these police, however it just goes to show that the system does work in favor of the victim in some cases.

Strip clubs are big money. I knew a few that were run very strictly.
The people running those clubs worked very hard to to avoid problems in order to keep the cops from having to come there.
There were several dancers who I would have had no problem taking home and introducing to my Mother. There's a law school in Northern Florida where several of the female students were strippers. Now they are lawyers.

Interesting. Thats a lot of different types there. I can honestly say that all but the immigrent strippers that you so nicely catagorized for me deffinately made a right when they should have made a left 10 or so years ago if you get my drift. But you go a. and glorify these so called "ladies" dosent bother me. Im not the janitor at one of these fine establishments.

Since there is some debate over if a stripper is a lady or not let me say this...

I've only ever personally known one stripper...
She was one of those kids the state took from her parents and dumped in the foster program... turns out once you turn 18 they kick you out of that foster care program no money no place to go to ,just out on the streets... so what does a scared young girl do for money.. besides turn into a hooker...

naw they get the benefit of the doubt from me... Ladies until proven otherwise.

Up here in canada you apply for financial assistance.
It's how i was raised till 15.
What's "a lady" anyways?
you can not be a lady, but still be cool at the same time; they aren't exclusive.

anyways, I'm glad a jury got this and made the right decision, from the sounds of it.

As a woman living in a hell zone world run by male values, with a few haves, and many billions of have nots, not expressing womens values of sharing,equality, cooperation, unity, like the natives lived, or maybe the Venus Project, because banks are slavery, I happen to see it a little differently.

No women should ever be a stripper or prostitute or be demeaned in any way. This is patriarchal usary and abuse of women. That being said, all these women to me are ladies inside, WAITING FOR FREEDOM AND EQUALITY, and hopefully the Venus Project, not to mention an advanced cosmic type matriarchal world of equality. The problem does not lie with the ladies, but with the patriarchal male oriented system and we're waiting for a changed attitude. The existence of strippers isn't a female value.
So they're still ladies. Its the men who have fallen.

Those cops were disgusting PIGS.

Out of curiosity have you ever met a stripper?

I ask, because I have known quite a few in my lifetime and most of the "good" "respectable" strippers I knew actually enjoyed stripping.

I don't think that these are women waiting for equality and freedom. What other profession gives them this much control over their environment and can put men to their knees instead of being the opposite.

Hell my best friend paid her way through med schools stripping and loved every moment of it. Just because you strip that doesn't mean to that you whore yourself out to men at the hourely rate.

It's simply dancing without clothes on.

How prudish can our society become when we can't appreciate the naked human body when somebody is making money off of it?

This is a choice that they made. Some do it for the negative reasons, some do it because they feel it's all they have, but that's SOME. Not all.
