The LEO's are at fault here.
They should know better.
This is beyond ludicrous. It's insane.
What is going on inside their collective heads?
Problem is, what happens if you refuse? An honest question, I certainly agree with your sentiments and that this is a clear violation of basic human rights. I suppose the answer would depend on what officers you were dealing with. However if you were dealing with two officers intent on molesting you on the side of a public road, then things could (and have before plenty) escalate and turn ugly.
I’m in no way trying to make light of this situation because I think it’s deplorable but….I heard a good defense for rape is to shart your pants. I’m sure this would work in this scenario as well. Let’s face it, do you really think they’d go through with the cavity search if you shart yourself? Hey, it’s an option!!
I think it was even more than just those 2 cops. They stated in the video that the female officer had to be called to the scene, in order to perform the search. At the very least, the dispatcher knew what they were planning to do before they did it. There were probably other officers who also heard the call, yet nobody thought to question the act?

......what was going through the minds of these cops to even think this treatment was an option. Did they not think it would come to light in a big way? And not one but both cops?
They knew what they were doing and yet BOTH were ok with it? This I don't understand.
That's the only part you don't agree with? I hope not, but it seems to me that you think it would have been ok, if only they had changed gloves....

Jude I don't think is defendable, if one of those women had AIDS for example, which BTW is extremely likely to be contracted through the anus, which is why gay men have so much higher rates of the disease, then now this woman was attacked and technically "murdered" with a biological weapon.

maybe the cops where new recruits?
I will say this as accurately and plainly as possible.... NSA, DHS, FBI, CIA or whomever monitors this site can take a note..... If this was my daughter, the Police force would be short 2 cops and I would happily sit in jail for the rest of my life or on Death Row.
