I sense a plethora of BS on this one.
Maybe she is trying to get back at the police for busting her for DUI back in June 2011 and following her on this incident a month later?
Why wait a year to file a law suit?
Like everyone one-sided story, we are missing context.
I've read the thread, there are a few voices of sanity. I wish the rest of you would not jump to conclusions, then use those unsupported conclusions to hate and attack. What's wrong with you?
Update: 8/10: 16:12 : The police of Citrus County Florida have issued the following statement and it does not make Ms. Tarantino look good. It might just be another crazy lawsuit. We know that in a free country, we are going to have lots of those.
Ref: Civil action filed on August 3, 2012, by Leila Tarantino, Plaintiff
The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office wants to go on record as saying the allegations made in this lawsuit are not only ludicrous, but completely untrue. Yes, a traffic stop was conducted on July 17, 2011. The plaintiff was issued a criminal citation for violation of restrictions on her driver’s license. She also was issued a written warning for rolling through a stop sign.
No strip search was conducted, and the plaintiff’s tampon was never forcibly removed by any deputy.
It is the Sheriff’s Office intent to aggressively defend itself against these malicious allegations.
Update: 8/10: Arrest record for Leila Tarantino, DUI, June, 2011. I have placed a call to the Citrus County police and hope to have the other side of this story soon, if there is a story.

If it's true....then it is a horrendous breach of human rights.....and the LEO's are nothing short of animals.
But.....in the land of litigation, it is just a "claim", Tarantino claims this happened in front of multiple witnesses, have any come forward yet?
Could be someone has seen an opening to a "fast buck"......saying it's so, doesn't make it so.
Possibly ... but, I think however you slice it her rights were clearly violated.

What do you think happened? And it's not just you. Please consider the other posts earlier on this page. Please. I'm going nuts here.
The sad part, is that this probably happens more than we hear about. What has the world come to? I don't understand what brings a police officer to do this. Serve and protect? No, there was no serving or protecting in any way, shape, or form.
