Outrage Over Highway Body Cavity Search

Two women are suing the Texas DPS after getting body cavity searches during a traffic stop.

"The male officer, his words verbatim were, 'We're gonna get familiar with your womanly parts,'" Brandy Hamilton said.

That officer, Nathaniel Turner, claimed to smell marijuana in Hamilton and Alexandria Randle's car when he pulled them over for speeding on Memorial Day 2012. He called a female trooper to search their genitalia for drugs on the side of Highway 288 in Brazoria County.

"You're going to go up my private parts?" Hamilton said.
Brandy Hamilton and Alexandria Randle have filed a lawsuit against Brazoria County for invasion of privacy after they were searched on the side of a highway on Memorial Day 2012.
KVUE

"Yes, ma'am," trooper Jennie Bui said matter-of-factly.

The entire stop was recorded on the state troopers' dash camera, including Hamilton's horrified face at the moment of insertion.

"She pretty much forced my legs open because I wouldn't even open my legs," Hamilton said.

These Women Obviously

...have no fathers, brothers, or husbands. Deduced from the fact that the two officers are still living.

Personally

Very definitely would say this is a Constitutional violation and that even with a judges warrant, I would refuse. I do NOT want NON medically people checking my private parts..IE..They need a medical certificate or license and even then, without my permission ,I should be able to refuse it if I feel it could cause me harm or an infection. Even if I get some kind of fine ...I don't care what sex they are who do the checking or how many witnesses. How do I know they can even don a medical glove properly and I know it wasn't a sterile one those are too expensive....and clean glove is NOT enough for an INVASIVE PROCEDURE that requires consent or judge warrant to do. Chalk one up for the druggies..another reason why marijuana should be decriminalized.This may not be racist oppression or a knife wound in a old sore spot , it is woman oppression of the same type of knife wound as racist oppression in a new spot..I am glad they are suing, they should get millions and it still won't clear us of this outrage. They are making us fight for every constitutional right in lthe courts.. Also only the woman was fired. They are trying to push for a Clinton presidency...the non woman.

Thats my cookie.



May God forbid this ever happen, however...

If anyone ever tries to stick a finger in my wife's cookie or brownie,
That action will be met with deadly force.

Whether to prevent it or in retaliation,
Someone is going to stop breathing.

I agree

They could spoil your wife's cookie for some time leaving you in the dog house...God works in mysterious ways and he was able to find a virgin for his son..

deacon's picture

seriously?

god found a virgin for his son?
he found a spoken for,betrothed,engaged woman
to what?
to forgive me of sins that aren't mine?
how can man forgive man?,if indeed jesus was born of wo(man)
then he is still man,so how can man forgive man?
must have been real hard for all knowing,all seeing,all watchful eye to find a virgin?
but would it boil down to,god found a woman and miraculously raped her?
had sex with her?
had his way,with one of his creations?
if the bible is true,then he did break his own commandments,after all,they were written down,and placed in an ark
but hey,he didn't commit murder either,did he?
if the israelites are not our ancestors,then that law does not apply
to us,it applies to them,they are the ones who are related to adam and eve
not me !
i broke no such laws,and do not believe i live in sin,but the creator has

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

The story is that Luke was a educated Greek.

He heard and saw what was going on and he went to Bethlehem and Jerusalem to speak to eye witnesses and report on what they experienced. So says tradition.

The church theology hadn't been invented yet. Luke was the skeptical Greek and a man of letters.

I find these modern interpretation batter the "facts" given in the ancient reports. How very MSM of them.

Hey

I am just commenting some personal thought on just how personal the cavity they are probing can be. Wars are fought over them...just saying..I did find my thoughts. God found Mary a virgin and He keep her a virgin for God does not defile. Joseph was reluctant to marry her being pregnant, but God showed to him through miracles that she was still pure.God being Spirit is not man, yet created the son of Man. His Son, His ONLY begotten SON.

Body cavity search??

Are we all a bunch of farmed animals? Wake up. Call this what it is. It is rape.

Why the double standard on tyranny?

Is it just easier to start with women? Are they the pathway of least resistance?

Imagine for a moment if it were 2 men in this stop. Would the cops have snapped on their blue gloves and given the men rectal exams? Would the outrage be different?

NO one should go through this, man or woman, but it seems to me there would be more outrage throughout the country if it were men who were violated.

Also, isn't it interesting that the female cop was fired while the older male cop was only put on suspension, even though he was instrumental in the decision to violate these women. I'm someone for equal human rights and treatment. This isn't equal

One thing is perfectly clear. If this isn't stopped soon, you men are the next target of these invasive searches. So stay angry and keep fighting against this.

Actually, this probably happens to men more often.

But people don't get outraged unless its women.

pigs is pigs.

honestly, i'm most shocked someone was fired over the matter.

i guess there's a first for everything.

I'm sure most rapist

I'm sure most rapist criminals who get caught wish all they had to worry about was getting fired...

Breaking boundaries

They are acclimatising people, as with the TSA.

Degrading the human spirit.

It's symptomatic of the sociopathic mind.

Nazi tactic

They did this to the Jews ..break the spirit so they don't resist.

FUCK THE POLICE

every man should have hand-reach-access to their own private security.

When

I first heard about this, I was driving and listening to the local talk radio host complaining about how "gloves weren't changed." The host was MORE concerned about the glove change than the act itself. Needless to say it made for a pretty depressing start to the holiday weekend. He's lucky I had an appointment and wasn't able to call in.

The small town LEOs around the coastal areas of Texas are legendary for their bad behavior, but this goes so far beyond, that I don't even know how to respond.
At least the officer was fired, but it still doesn't make me any more comfortable with how far we've strayed off course. It's sickening and infuriating at the same time. Someone must be training them to do this.

I couldn't even bring myself to watch the earlier video of the guy getting arrested for filming and his dog getting shot. I get the feeling from some of the comments around the web that people are about to start taking matters into their own hands. Maybe it's just internet tough talk IDK.

There are only going to be so many videos of forceful blood draws, checkpoints, cavity searches, and dog shootings before some people get pushed over the edge. I'm guessing that's what they want.

I, too, did not watch the dog get shot

Couldn't even read the thread. Sadness all around. Agree that we're reaching a boiling point.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Not to be graphic, but

The 1:05 point in this video kind of reminded me of the Ned Beatty rape scene in the movie Deliverance.

That makes three that I've read about on here recently

one in Citrus County FL and two in Texas. Are they going to just continue doing this until people stop complaining? Why aren't these departments in bankruptcy or uninsurable? Crazy.

Oh, yeah...

there are some good cops out there.

Where? I don't have a freakin' clue because they sure aren't coming out agianst this type of rape mentality behavior.

So, silence is golden, isn't it? Silence speaks with a deafening ring.

MOST cops are bad. Most cops are idiots who can't do anything else.

Any cops out there who want to speak up? That's what I thought.

PIGS!

And ALL of this because he said he smelled pot. SO, FREAKING WHAT!

This "pig" disagrees with

This "pig" disagrees with what they did and would not have allowed that to occur on my watch. I would and I know others who would have never even considered taking such action and if aware that another "pig" was considering it, would have prevented it. If learning it occurred after the fact, that "pig" would have had to deal with other "pigs" bearing witness against his/her actions. Most police departments have policies that have been long in place against such searches. I understand you have a hatred of all "pigs" but is that hatred the most efficient method of forming alliances or does it create insurmountable barriers that further the division?

I don't hate all cops as individuals, but I hate cops...

Cops as individuals are just people. I don't hate people. But I hate the idea of a separate police force with rights and powers above and beyond that of other people. It has created an entire system of corruption and brutality. It has created a separate, Warrior class that works directly for the Ruling class, which allows the Ruling class to be unanswerable to the People. Police are the Praetorian Guard.

We need security in our communities. Our founders gave us every tool we need to solve that problem. It is called the 2nd Amendment.

I think Judge Roy Bean portrayed the mentality of becoming

of becoming the law. Paul Newman provides great insight into the cultural history of Tx law enforcement.
