Well right wingers, you get what you wanted, for voting for every sheriff and politician who promised to be "tough on crime." You have supported the
militarization of our cops. You've cheered on every bit of fear-mongers thrown at you. When Bush said we needed an Orwellian-named Department of
Homeland Security, you sent in campaign contributions to every hard right candidates and presto!, we have the TSA.
You have earned us a police state. You say, "we never wanted this!!" I say, well, you've never much thought beyond the sound bites fed you now did
you? You aren't so good about thinking about the unintended consequences of your actions, are you?
This is perfectly legal now. Don't any of you remember what the right wing Supreme Court just ruled a few months back? Someone may be strip searched
following being stopped for ANY infraction, even not having a bell on your bike in some states, in the interest of safety and good order of jails. The
Court deemed the risk of contraband entering a jail and destabilizing order of the jail enough justification to deprive someone of their 4th amendment
rights. Oh, and the strip search can be conducted at the first point of detainment, aka the side of the road.
Just another reason why I choke back anger every time any republican pundit claims the mantle of limited government. What a crock.
Welcome to law enforcement in Amerika 2012. Thank you very much right wingers.
