Don't mess with Texas.... cops!

This totally and thoroughly excludes TX from my choice of states to move to.
I thought Texans didn't put up with this crap?
Why didn't they ask if they were being charged with anything BEFORE they submitted themselves to such abuse?
Is this what the TSA airport submission training has done to people? Made them totally clueless to their rights?
4th Amendment! Learn it by heart!
I was thinking that these women were stupid stupid STUPID but maybe they allowed this blatant unconstitutional degradation just so they could sue. I hope they make big bucks out of this. I doubt it will go to court and I doubt anything will happen to these cops except to be told to turn off the camera next time.

"Don't mess with Texas" is BULLSHIT

I hear that line from Texas "conservatives" All. The. Time.
Your average Texan is just as much of a blind jingoist as any other American-- except that they're under the very wrong impression that they're somehow special, and even better than other Americans.

If I see/hear another Texan talk about how they're this brave, fearless people who won't be tread on ever again, it'll be too soon.

I know not all Texans are like what I described above, but in my experience, an overwhelming majority are.

A signature used to be here!

Does anyone question the

Does anyone question the veracity of this video? Who's taking the pictures? There is nothing descriptive about the locale. Even in Texas it is hard to imagine that this is being done roadside. Why did the women consent to such a search? It wouldn't take much to rile a population in USA than to purport these atrocities from afar. In so doing they certainly are succeeding in wounding the tourist industry and the international image of travel to USA.

Dash Cam Video

Here is the story from a local CBS station.

As to why they submitted, the driver stated in one interview that she didn't know what she could do. You have to remember that our constitutional rights are not taught in school. Most people do not understand that they have the right to say no.

How did the video get released that was taken by the cop's dash

cam? Also, I found it strange that neither woman seemed to react at all during the search.

This is shown in the UK? Embarrassing for the whole USA

I wonder how many vacationers this will discourage? Whatever these girls get in their law suit and I hope it's significant, is nothing compared to the loss in positive image Texas has worked to create world wide.
You can send the video to them in the link below.

important comment

Clearly done to degrade the women and nothing else. That police officer should be sacked and sent to jail herself. She could of transferred some sexually transmitted infections by not changing gloves between the women. She has no medical training and should not be doing this at all. Even searching the anal cavity before the vaginal cavity without changing gloves can cause serious infections that may lead to infertility. Disgusting.

Too Bad

That these girls were so ignorant of their rights. They could have kept this from happening at all! They should not have consented to this invasion either of their car or themselves!

skippy

Exactly

That was hard to watch,,,

.

they interviewed the two attys working the case and their anger showed.
the one said "this was a third degree misd. and the troopers had no right to do a strip search".
the cops claimed they smelled marijuana but none was found.
they interviewed the girls on the news and they are taking this public.

War on what?

Hey Cops...Is it that elfing important that you find drugs on an individual? My GOD, get a real life, this is just plain abuse of authority.
But, in the officer's defense, there just might be a "terrorist" hiding in those underwear...you never can be too careful...right cops?
I'm more afraid of an agressive police officers than I am of illegal marijuana in a law abiding citizen's car.

Sick

This female officer should be sent for mental help imo. Hopefully the plaintiffs will get good compensation.

Yeah, I can't

believe they let that happen, and I hope they win big in their lawsuit.

It appears...

It appears as though the women consented. I did not hear or see either resist or refuse.

I think the word to use is submitted, not consented.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

It's unbelievable that they put up with that!!!

I hope they sue and get a million dollars

And both those cops are fired. yeah I know it's tax payer money but this is just flat out a violation in every way.

words fail me

WoW! OMG! Things are gonna get worse before they get better!

If TX police are doing this to Texans...I wonder what the federal govt is gonna do to us! Looks like the TSA got competition for who's the biggest perv!

In the 2nd girl, the cop was really digging! damn!

This is too gross for words.

This is too gross for words. Girls are suppose to wipe from front to back for a reason..and they just shared and swapped...They probably would have had to arrest me for assault on a cop after that one.
