Talk about an invasion of privacy....yikes! Two women got pulled over in north Texas for throwing a cigarette butt out of their car window, which resulted in a body cavity search. Something tells me not much is going to happen to these two.

One of the state troopers is accused of theft. One of the women that was pulled over reported a medicine bottle missing from her purse after the search.

This was posted at the time it happened, but this is a welcome update. Glad to see they didn't get away with it. Doing a roadside cavity search is way out of line. What I can't figure out is, where did the cops get the idea to pull them over for suspicion of drugs, when all they had done was throw out a cigarette butt? Sounds like a quickly made excuse.

This is horrible that something like this can happen! I hope these people get the justice that they deserve. That being said I hope people realize that this is not common behavior with Texas state troopers. I have had dealings with them a few times- in fact the only time I was ever arrested was by Texas state troopers- and in my experience they have been the nicest, most well mannered and most professional of any kind of police officers I have ever had any dealings with.

I would have to ask the troopers to produce the cigarette butt in question and allow for DNA testing.

I wonder if they could pick the right one out of all the ones that litter the roadside?

agreed. the last thing I want to have this thread do is label all law enforcement officers as being dogs because that is simply not true at all. I tip my hat to the ones who take their job seriously and indeed serve and protect.

Not only didn't she change the gloves between the two women, she went back first, then to the front. HUGE nono for women, this spreads bacteria that causes dangerous infections. She then went from the first woman to the second with dirty gloves, starting again in the back, going to the front.

One of the women had a rectal abcess she was being treated for, I believe that was what the pain meds were for that went missing.

That female trooper has been charged with two counts of sexual assault.

It should be more, including endangerment, based on the huge health risks she imposed on both women with her wanton carelessness and calousness.

If you listen, you can even hear one woman state she felt violated. Indeed.

As I understand it, he pulled them over for littering for flicking the cigarette butt out the window, and claimed he smelled [snipped] That was his "probable cause" to search the vehicle. He felt they were still hiding something from him, so he called the female officer for the body search.

No drugs were found after the two women adamantly denied that either used [snipped]
Original story - trooper said they were "acting wierd".

Welcome to the United Police States of America.

There have been a ton of stories as of late about police brutality, misconduct, and what not. In most of these stories, they get away with their crimes because, they are somehow above the law.

I hope that this case will be an exception.

And the not changing gloves and going back to front on these women? Disgusting. What if one of them had a sexually transmitted disease and it got passed on to the other one?

Here is another video of the same trooper pulling someone else over. Just an FYI about him. He clearly violates their rights, as well. It appears this is an ongoing investigation, as well.

Form your own opinion.

This would be a pretty disturbing plot for an X-Rated movie.

But even worse, it's not a movie


Ever hear the story about the frog in the pot.



Just joking - everybody knows this story. Chillax, everything is fine.

Exactly. I think it's important to talk about these kind of incidents to try to at least slow down the police state that is growing bigger everyday.

Really happy to hear this positive update. Figured they would let it slide instead. Can't stop there, can't let other invasive handling continue. Not to mention, I had seen enough of the soap boxing that included that there was no problem, that the cop is in the right and that the women are related making one glove okay!

The way the media reports outrageous attacks on civil liberties like this really is shameful.The language used by the reporters doesn't come close to describing the sickening abuse those two innocent girl suffered at the hands of the cold, creepy, perverted female officer involved.



Why don't they call it what it is. An Evil abuse of power by two twisted, power crazed bullies in uniform.



The male officer must also be fired. He is clearly not fit to hold a position of authority over vulnerable females.

Sexual Assault?

Should be sentenced as any other citizen would be.

Let their fellow inmates sort them out.
That's true justice for sexual assault.

Peace
