No the cop should not be charged with sexual assault. The tampon would have been removed if she was taken in to custody. If you are suspected of
drugs they search your body including there. So sexual assault would not be the charge. Now when I say they check your body....I don't mean right
there on the street, at the police station.
Removing her tampon on the side of street is sexual assault.
Just like it would be if anyone forcibly removed a womans tampon on the side of the street.
Whether they suspected her of drugs or not, there is a proper proceedure to doing such cavity searches and on the side of the road puts this into
being sexual assault as it involves the womens genitals.
And to the others who responded to my quote, I don't really care if the woman is a known felon with a string of offences as long as her arm, if this
female officer sexually assaulted this woman by forcibly removing her tampon on the side of the street, then she should be prosecuted.
Agree or disagree with it, that's how I feel about it.
