Insulting someone's thought process? You must be a genius. Who does no wrong and no harm to people. And you certainly don't look down on other people for their alleged thought process deficiency.

I've had cops come to my apartment 3 hours after I called them for my place being kicked in. Then they show up and tell me "They broke in because you probably sell drugs". They didn't even start to fingerprint, write down the serials of the stolen items. What a crock.
I realize that is an isolated event, and doesn't represent all cops. But that shouldn't happen. They get paid to protect the public, and never have they protected me.

I've called them for someone threatening to shoot me, and they showed up, told him to leave, and they left.
And wouldn't you know, he came back the next day. But if I took this into my own hands, I would have been charged with AM or worse. That's the beauty of it, right?

The police system, along with the court system, has turned into nothing but a business. Yeah, they might protect people sometimes, you must've gotten lucky with the cop you had.

Are we happy with this, as Americans? That the outcome of the reason that you called the police boils down to luck?

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Does the outrage also apply when the accused are law enforcement officers?

What we have here is a report of a lawsuit that was filed due to an incident that allegedly occurred a year ago in July, 2011. At this point, we've heard one side.

It would be nice if we could extend the same courtesy of assumption of innocence to LEOs, at least until more info is available beyond what's provided by a lawyer who's looking to ugly this up as much as possible in order to collect.

I think I'll withhold judgement until additional information is available.

Just my opinion.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

** Very well said.
If this is true, let it come out in a court of law with full punishment to follow. Until then, lets not automatically assume that an officer is guilty and call them all scum. A lot of people making comments on here have no idea how modern law enforcement is keeping civilization "civilized".

Well I won't. If this is true, I swear they want a civil war. One that is anything but civil. Bend over and take it, Amerika. TSA groping, surveillance cameras at fricken McDonalds even, and this is not a police state? Now WHO is the unfortunate soul who will come in here and tell me this is NOT a police state anymore?

Pulling out a tampon... Jesus H. Christ. :shk: What are they going to do next? Automatic semen extractors to test for STD's at traffic stops? I mean get real. When is Amerika going to say "enough of this total BS???"

I hear you and agree wholeheartedly, but let us not forget the part of your post "if this is true".

As gruesome and horrible as it sounds...something rings a little TOO gruesome and, frankly, outright indecent. Stripped naked on the side of a road with traffic..and in full view? Okay, and how much work did it take to clear the rubber neckers with phone cams trying to get the cop-porn shot? I mean it's not's a serious point. I used to marvel at how ONE unit on ONE traffic stop could cause a whole freeway to both directions..and heck, they weren't even out of their cars.

This is a soft porn peep show in full public view and that of her children? Okay..this just isn't ringing true. At the same time, cops have done some unbelievable things ( 5 though? Plus the female? Thats a lot of people to have a sick fetish at once)

I think I'll hang onto my skepticism and join some others on the sidelines until more information is available. If she was in this position and, as she puts it, in clear view of passing hard could it be for witnesses? Hell, my wife would risk arrest herself in getting out for a scene like this describes.

good post. I will give you that, I agree with more than half of that....most of it. The fact you said that your circles are well informed and in the know...that they are logical....means you are very privileged to have people like that around you and I envy you.

what that means as well is that you don't talk to the vast majority of Americans who can not claim to be any of those things, and even less so now a days for the reasons you mentioned.

here is a thread I made after our last exchange. I feel it is everything I have to say about it. Please take a look at it.

Everyday theres a new story(usually more) of cops acting out of line, and nobody is stopping it.

Umm, no offense, but that is an extremely terrible idea.

Im no expert on things of this nature, but this Agency that would, "Police the Police" would be a huge waste of money and time(like NASA). They would be controlled by the government, of course, and Im pretty damn sure most things would go unreported or stories would be changed or whatever, thus creating more conspiracies and coverups.

Unfortunately, there are 3 sides to every story...Her Story, the Cops story, and the Truth...Who knows what really went on, Im not saying the Mom did something to make the cops suspicous or anything because why wouldnt it be reported....Im just saying Im skeptical about everything, maybe to skeptical. Im just the type to only belive something when I see it...Like "God" lol.

We should go back to the old school forms of punishment, Like getting Lashes, the Stockades, or Tar and Feathering.

I think the Nazi`s took over America a long time ago and now their agenda is coming to fruition.

Are we sure that this is not just a hoax. It came from another blog. Is there another source for this?

Sorry if it has been posted already, I haven't read the whole thread.....

If it is true, and it were me, they would have had to shoot me before I would allow them to strip search me on the side of the road! It just sounds fishy to me.....

Okay I found another source 12/08/10/leila-tarantino-florida-tampon-strip-search-traffic-stop_n_1764218.html

Unfortunately you will never be sick and tired of being sick and tired to do anything....your divide and conquer guilt program will always dominate and override any attempt.

Its easier to take our frustrations out on everything besides channeling it into the final solution.

If a cop EVER pulls you over and asks to look into your glove box.....tell him sure, the minute you get a search warrant. and then as he is getting angry and demanding compliance just keep repeating...because it is my right.
If you got nothing to hide why wont you open it.....because it is my right.
Am I under arrest? No, then I will be going now....because it is my right
Nothing pisses them off more than a citizen who knows their rights and refuses to relinquish them to their authority.
A good cop will tell you that you are correct......and a bad cop will try to prove you wrong.

There should be people whose job it is to go break traffic laws and test the reactions the police give them. That would incline a lot of them to think before they act.... and an annual testing of their understanding of the Constitution wouldn't hurt either

Part of the ticket she got was driving on her suspended liscence for the DUI a few days before. Her debt was not paid for any of the numerious crimes she committed just in a few weeks not to count the month or the year. All case pending until her court date. When someone is stupid enough to get in trouble while they still have a court date next month is crazy. But she tops it all off she got in trouble repeatedly while still waiting for the first court date to come.

Wow....stories like this are what make ready to fight the police...this extreme police behaviour is going to dictate "extremist" retaliations...not just by me but believe I got Plans A thru V ready to start this war on cops..ready to take bullets as long as I take down some of these pigs with me.
On the tipping more outrageous story like this and the FBI will be correct in a RedFlag assessment of ready to destroy this world and rebuild anew -___-

Blog Story

At least. that's what a new lawsuit in the Sunshine State is claiming.

Sentinel Story

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.

Police Officers have insurance that protects them while on duty. I am positive that the handling material that may be considered a bio hazard would be an item covered in the material. Tampons would be considered potentially biologically hazardous.

I am positive that strip searches are not permitted to be conducted in a public place and frankly I find it fishy that no one driving by would have seen something strange about a naked woman standing on the side of the road surrounded by cops. Considering that, why are there no calls to 911 or the local police to back up this story?

This story reeks of hoax and there are a lot of presumptions in the OP.

I was just posting on a thread about "main stream media manipulation". Then I read this article which is sensationalizing an undecided lawsuit that is further sensationalized as the "new America".

This can't be real. I mean, this must be the victim embellishing their story.

Strip searched on the side of the road? Umm.....I just can't imagine that being done.
