And we, the people, will take it up the kazoo once again by paying more for medical services, not having a hospital in the region available whatsoever, and for court costs, jail costs if convicted, and the fines will be paid by the municipality, not the officers involved.

It's win-win for the perpetrators and lose-lose for us.

One wonders what kind of mental ability is involved with going this far to search for limited amounts of drugs (how much can you hide in your heiny??) on a dog's say-so?

After reading about the man in New Mexico and now this, what the h#@! is going on?! First of all, how is this not plastered all over the MSM? Oh yea, it's protocol so it's ok

Also, as many have said, who in their right mind goes along with this. I'm sorry, but I would go "Rambo" on these guys. Not to take away from the victims, I guess some are purely sheepled to the point that what these goons say goes.

I live in Texas and let me assure you, this is not typical of our state. This so called war on drugs has gotten ridiculous along the border. I apologize for my state, but for sure these idiots are NOT Texans.

This is a travesty. If being strip searched failed to turn anything up, but suspicion remained, then there are medical grade scans, including ultrasound, x-rays, and so on, that could have been used to perform a non-invasive examination, which would have, without doubt, revealed any and all potentially illegal contents of the subjects abdomen.

There was no need for this woman's most intimate parts to be inspected, let alone probed, and any such practice ought to be illegal no matter the circumstance. If they had probable cause to search her, then they should have taken her to a hospital for scanning exams, and NOTHING MORE unless the scans conclusively proved that the lady was carrying drugs. The fact that she was also refused access to legal representation until after she had been abused, is frankly disgusting.

That is very unfortunate. It is saddening that this woman was treated like an animal. NO warrant. Sickening. I can't type the words in my head, they are so explicit and angry.

First thing that came to my mind. "Sexual Assault"

Does this describe what happened?


Sexual assault is any involuntary sexual act in which a person is threatened, coerced, or forced to engage against their will, or any sexual touching of a person who has not consented. This includes rape (such as forced vaginal, anal or oral penetration), groping, forced kissing, child sexual abuse, or the torture of the victim in a sexual manner.[1][2][3]

While I don' t have all the facts, I can tell you that if that were me put in that position, I think I would pay very close attention to names of all those involved. I'm not sure what it would take for me to crack, but if I were being raped because some LE jerk was on a power trip, I think I might have to retaliate.

Of course, I'd plan it out so, eventually, all my attackers were silenced....one by one.

This is a really awful abuse of power. What if the poor woman had just brushed up against a drug dealer and had a residue of drugs on her clothing? I'm embarrassed that this happened in my state!

I agree the natural instinct is fight or flight. Unfortunately, when one is numerically outnumbered, fight may not be the best option. It did state in the story the lady was handcuffed to an examination table. When they gave her a laxative and made her use a portable toilet in front of the officers, that would be the perfect time to jump up, turn around, and "BLOW IT OUT", making sure the officers got to wear what they so desperately desired.

This country is going in the wrong direction. When are folk's gonna get mad enough to stop this kind of abuse?

80% of all cash in the USA has traces of coc aine. Makes it real easy for a dog to hit on just about anyone with a few bucks in their pocket.

If the cops nailed me like that and tried to stick something up my ass and it will likely be the last thing either of us do........ I would kill before I allowed myself to be raped.


Definition of Rape. The exact definition of "rape" differs from state-to-state within the U.S. and by country internationally. In the US, it is often called "criminal sexual conduct in the first degree". Generally, rape is defined as sexual contact or penetration achieved:

without consent, or
with use of physical force, coercion, deception, threat, and/or
when the victim is:

mentally incapacitated or impaired,
physically impaired (due to voluntary or involuntary alcohol or drug consumption)
asleep or unconscious.

Since this is done by medical staff and the police, who despite their actions are by the legal definition of the law, sane and of sound mind, this amounts to institutional molestation. Who knows how many other case like the two that have been publicized. It would be simple enough to file a FOIA at every hospital.

I've got my own definition of rape: Someone trying to stick ANYTHING in my body without my consent, I don't give a good goddam WHAT it is, a finger, a swab, anything. I don't care what your job is or how much "authority" you THINK you have, If you try to rape ME, then I will try to kill YOU.

I don't do drugs, other than prescribed. I don't own illegal firearms, I don't have illegal mods to my vehicle, I keep my insurance and inspection up to date, as well as inspecting my blinkers and lights often.

In short, there is NO EXCUSE to pull me over, and there is nothing for me to hide. The only reason do do so is if you are "fishing".

I wonder why ALL of these cases are carried out against women, older people, people who are OBVIOUSLY not a physical threat? Anyone here besides me feeling a keen sense of irony that the victims cops pick for institutionally sponsored rape are the same demographics as the victims chosen for the "knockout crime"?

Why don't they try that #e on a 6' 5" 250 pound bodybuilder?

Hi. I can give you guys my perspective all the way from Sweden.
I have been om ats glp and a few others and i must say i see so much of this and many many other stuff and incidents. You are being raped! And yes you are many complaining on the net, but you are all taking this crap and will not do anything about it. I am not calling you coward, but i call your population cowards.
When this kind of # was going on in Latinamerica for example, you had revolutions! You may think what you want about comunism socialism but people did not take this #! They died and were tortured..they put their lifes on the line.
Its amazing how much crap you guys are willing to take. Burn the place down man! Burn it down! Let it be war on the streets! You live in a fully corrupted society, there is no "land of the free" you are being raped every single day. And wait and see..its getting worse, if you believe this is not going to affect you that its not your business...just wait and see.
My best regards wishing you guys did something about this.

My guess is that this isn't the first time this hospital has done this. The border agents probably bring people they "suspect" of having drugs there all the time.


Speed traps and checkpoint are now not just income makers for the police, hospitals can get in on the action.

True....until people start suing the bejesus out of them. A few multi-million dollar awards will go a long way towards having the hospitals starting to rethink their positions on this.

No warrant - no legal authority to do a damn thing.

Poke me at your own fiduciary risk...

Maybe we should all have that printed up on business cards...

They act as if the woman could bring in 10 pounds. See they aren't even
interested in stopping the flow of drugs into the U.S. They just don't
want the little people to get away with anything cause Bush hates the
competition.
Meanwhile the CIA just received shipment
of a hundred fifty pounds from Bogota.

So if the final outcome was a trip to the hospital to be ct scanned, then why not start with a ct scan? Nope we would rather rubber glove ya and break every law we suppose to uphold in the process. How can a law officer be called a law officer if he/she has no concept of even the most basic laws of the constitution? Even more mind boggling is that they take an oath to uphold that law. I can't think of any drug small enough to fit into a person cavity worth the risks involved here. All of this nonsense turned into a complete disaster. Now we have a traumatized victim, people jailed, licenses revoked, justice dept sued, hospital sued, tax payers ripped off. They found nothing! What you have here is a broken corrupt judicial system and broken laws. Can you hear that sound? That's the sound of the US being flushed down the toilet.
