And the beat goes on

Body cavity searches are not for the timid or shy
Funny how some things catch your attention?  I was looking around the web and I see an article in about police officers (allegedly) conducting illegal body cavity searches following routine traffic stops.  No, really!

You'd think police have better things to do than stop people for failing to signal before changing lanes late at night and having them do the Full Monty on the sidewalk.  Who'd have thought that mere infractions were big money (not to mention what they will do to your insurance rates)?  Anyway, turns out police all over the country are arresting people, conducting body cavity searches for drugs, not finding drugs, and then springing the people only to go after more unsuspecting victims.  Comes as no surprise, then, that many cities around the country are being sued for what their police "force" (oxymoron if ever there was one) is doing.  

If you've ever suspected you were the victim of an illegal stop or search of your person by police, might I suggest you take a look at:
Yep, there are some surprising goings on out there in "legal" land.  If ever you suspect you're a victim of police "force" or if you think you know someone who might have been, head on over to your local county law library cause we have just what you need to help you do whatever it is you're wanting to accomplish.
