Another case of search warrants on leashes gone wrong, as a woman is subjected to vaginal and anal probing and X-raying in a fruitless search for drugs.

 

We have more prisoners than any other country and drugs are cheaper, more pure, and more available than ever. And we tolerate this from our government.

 

At what point will people begin to listen to libertarians on the insanity of the drug war?

I agree, but it might be best to not attribute the argument to livertarians. It might gain more traction as a practical rather than an ideological point. WF Buckley, his counterpart on the left, Chomsky, maybe. The word has become associated with some very nutty people.

Should any substances be illegal?

 

In some contexts, yes, much like booze is illegal in some contexts.

 

Possession and use of marijuana should not be illegal, but commercial sales should be regulated.

 

We should also look at civil penalties for misbehavior and treatment for those with serious problems, both of which cost less and cause less harm than just locking people in prisons.

 

And Mark, I can't help where good ideas tend to come from. The fact that people like Buckley finally came around does not mean the idea can be attributed to him.

Should any substances be illegal?

 

I don't think that's the question, it's "Are the present policies doing more harm than good?" We might be better off to get the profit motive and breeding grounds for OC out of the picture, and there is only one way to do that with a police force the US public will tolerate.

 

A lot of substances should be regulated, but make something like drugs illegal and you lose that ability.

Hat tip to Obama for commuting ridiculous drug war sentences


The best-known prisoner who will be freed as a result of today's clemency actions is Clarence Aaron, who was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences in 1993 for his role in arranging a cocaine deal. Aaron's case received a lot of attention recently thanks to reporting by ProPublica's Dafna Linzer, who revealed that his clemency petition probably would have been granted by George W. Bush if the Office of the Pardon Attorney had not omitted important information from its evaluation.

 

Another commutation beneficiary, Stephanie George, received a life sentence in 1997 for letting her boyfriend stash his crack at her house. New York Times reporter John Tierney highlighted her case in a front-page story last December. Thanks to Obama's commutations, Aaron and George will both be released next April instead of spending the rest of their lives behind bars.

Resistance is futile

 

...Charnesia Corley, a 21-year-old African American, was driving in northern Harris County around 10:30 p.m. on June 21 when a male deputy pulled her over for allegedly running a stop sign. He said he smelled marijuana, handcuffed Corley, put her in his vehicle and searched her car for almost an hour. He didn't find any pot, according to her attorney, Sam Cammack.

 

Returning to his car where Corley was held, the deputy again said he smelled marijuana and called in a female deputy to conduct a cavity search. When the female deputy arrived, she told Corley to pull her pants down, but Corley protested because she was cuffed and had no underwear on. The deputy ordered Corley to bend over, pulled down her pants and began to search her.

 

Then, according to Cammack, Corley stood up and protested, so the deputy threw her to the ground and restrained her while another female was called in to assist. When backup arrived, each deputy held one of Corley's legs apart to conduct the probe.

 

"What these officers did out there at the Texaco station was unconscionable. I've worked many big cases and I've never seen that," said Cammack, who plans to sue the Harris County Sheriff's Office in federal court.

 

The Sheriff's Office said they could not comment on an ongoing investigation, but confirmed an incident took place.

 

Rebecca Robertson, legal and policy director of the ACLU of Texas, said a cavity search without a warrant was a "blatant" violation of the Fourth Amendment, and that an orifice probe was the most invasive search possible.

 

"A body cavity search without a warrant would be constitutionally suspect," she said. "But a body cavity search by the side of the road ... I can't imagine a circumstance where that would be constitutional."...

 

 

 

But he smelled weed! The dreaded killer, marijuana! That excuses pretty much any kind of behavior. We must give police all the powers they might need if we are ever to finish "winning" this war on some drugs!

 

Remember, voters, only two Duopoly candidates show ANY hope of ending this nonsense. Rand and Bern.

Police: Teaneck man pulled gun on neighbor for farting


11237668-large.jpg

TEANECK — An elderly man was arrested Monday night after a neighbor's fart allegedly drove him to threaten him with a gun, police said.

Daniel Collins, 72, had been involved in an ongoing dispute with the unidentified neighbor for some time, Det. Lt. Andrew McGurr told NJ.com. The neighbor told officers that Collins pointed a revolver at him in the vestibule of their apartment building at 694 Cedar Lane at around 9:25 p.m.

Collins said he confronted the man after hearing him pass gas in front of his apartment door, but denied threatening him with a gun. He consented to a search, and officers recovered a .32 caliber revolver from his vehicle.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and making terroristic threat

Linky gone

 

 

I've forgotten what it was but am pretty sure I put it in "Mocking Ads" on that same date so you may be able to go back and figure out what it was from context.

 

Post 3 actually has the topic link. The thread is about anal cavity searches in the drug war. And, based on post 17, tools. Not sure how they are relevant.

Another Sexual Assault In Service Of The Drug War

 

...Officer David Maiella stopped Carbone in the late afternoon of November 3, 2013, after seeing a man, later identified as Jason Monette, "briefly enter an apartment" and get into her car. Presumably Maiella suspected Monette of buying drugs, and the official, unverifiable justification for pulling over the car was merely a pretext. But according to the Supreme Court, that's OK. About 15 minutes after the stop, Police Chief Robert Salem and Lawrence County District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa arrived at the scene, where they grilled Monette about her companion and asked her whether she had any drugs. She said she didn't, but they did not believe her.

 

Suddenly claiming to smell the odor of burnt marijuana coming from Carbone's car, Maiella arrested her on suspicion of driving under the influence. He did not administer a roadside sobriety test, which is standard procedure in DUI cases. But he did pat her down, which was allowed as a "search incident to arrest," and he later obtained a warrant to search her car. Neither search discovered any contraband.

At the Lawrence County Correctional Center, Carbone was forced to remove her clothing, "bend over, spread her buttocks, and cough." Carbone says two corrections officers, April Brightsue and Niesha Savage, mistakenly thought they saw a plastic bag protruding from her vagina, so they repeatedly instructed her to "prod her personal areas by inserting her fingers into her vagina" in the hope of dislodging the imaginary item. Then they had her bend over, spread her buttocks, and cough again. Carbone was "crying hysterically" and insisting that she was not concealing anything inside her body. The Supreme Court has approved strip searches as a routine jail precaution for incoming arrestees, even when they are charged with minor offenses and there is no reason to think they are concealing drugs or weapons.

 

Maiella, the arresting officer, asked Salem and Lamancusa what he should do next, and they instructed him to take Carbone to Jameson Hospital in New Castle for "an internal examination of her body cavities." At the hospital, the cops found a doctor, Bernard Geiser, who agreed that Carbone needed treatment "for a possible overdose, rectal packing and/or oral intake of a controlled substance." But Carbone did not consent to "treatment," and the police did not obtain a warrant authorizing the procedures that followed....

 

 

I know, I know, if I see a problem with this it must be because I'm a pothead.

Cops display bad judgement by searching a woman's vagina for 11 minutes because she might have stuffed some of the dreaded killer, marijuana, up there.
 

Quote

 

Police initially said Corley consented to the search, but they also charged her with resisting arrest and with possession of marijuana. Harris County prosecutors dropped the charges against Corley in August 2015 and issued a statement calling the search "offensive and shocking."

The Harris County District Attorney's office did not return calls from Reason, but county prosecutor Natasha Sinclair told the Houston TV station KRIV that "no one in this office stands by the search the way it happened," but she also said the officers' "bad judgement" might not rise to the level of criminal offense.

Another "don't clench your vagina" story
 

Quote

 

A school counselor decided to take a tropical vacation in Jamaica over Thanksgiving break in 2016. The fun came to a screeching halt when she encountered U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents while retrieving her luggage at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. The encounter that followed led to a lawsuit currently pending in a U.S. District Court.

Tameika Lovell tells The Washington Post that her 2016 stop was unlike any she had previously experienced. To start, the questions in this encounter were noticeably different. A CBP supervisor inquired about her finances, asking, "Don't you think you're spending too much money traveling?" A female CBP officer then prepared Lovell for a search, apparently for illegal drugs. Lovell was asked if she was wearing a tampon or a sanitary pad, to which she replied "no." She recalled that the question was upsetting. The female officer then began to search Lovell while a second watched while holding on to her firearm. After squeezing Lovell's breasts, the officer "placed her right hand into [Lovell's] pants 'forcibly' inserting four gloved fingers into plaintiff's vagina" and then her buttocks "for viewing."

 

And again it's about the stupid drug war.

Syracuse police have a look up a man's butthole then bill him for it
 

Quote

 

Syracuse.com reports that Syracuse police, a city judge, and St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center "collaborated to sedate" Torrence Jackson after he was arrested following a traffic stop "and thread an 8-inch flexible tube into his rectum in a search for illegal drugs."

The suspect, who police said had taunted them that he'd hidden drugs there, refused consent for the procedure.

At least two doctors resisted the police request. An X-ray already had indicated no drugs. They saw no medical need to perform an invasive procedure on someone against his will.

The notes from police and doctors suggest some tension, a standoff. At one point, eight police officers were at the hospital. A doctor remembers telling officers: "We would not be doing that."

The hospital's top lawyer got pulled in. He talked by with the judge who signed the search warrant, which was written by police and signed at the judge's home. When they were done, the hospital lawyer overruled the doctors. The lawyer told his doctors that a search warrant required the doctors to use "any means" to retrieve the drugs, records show.

 

Jackson was then hooked up to an IV against his will and put under general anesthesia while doctors performed a sigmoidoscopy. No drugs were found.

 

But just because no drugs were found doesn't mean this didn't cost money.

Quote

The drug charges against Jackson resulting from the traffic stop were thrown out. Jackson has refused to pay for the unwanted medical procedure, and the hospital is now threatening to send him to collections.

The thing is, the hospital's lawyer is probably right. A warrant does require that cops execute the warrant. If that means ordering docs to help, that's what it means. Cops order locksmiths to break safes to execute a warrant. They'll crack your iPhone too, if they can.

This is normal procedure for the drug war. The problem isn't the procedure. It's the drug war.

To be fair, the other problem was the guy who decided it was a good idea to taunt cops by saying he had drugs up his ass.

This isn't a good idea.

In butt cheek spreading news,

Minnesota's Supreme Court says cops didn't need to find drugs that badly.

Quote

This  case  requires  us  to  determine  whether  a  body  cavity  search performed by forcing the appellant to be strapped down and sedated and to undergo an invasive anoscopy against  his  will  was  reasonable  under  the  Fourth  Amendment to  the  United  States Constitution.  We conclude that forcing appellant Guntallwon Karloyea Brown to undergo an anoscopy against his will and under sedation in the presence of nonmedical personnel is a serious invasion of Brown’s dignitary interests in personal privacy and bodily integrity that  outweighs  theState’s  need  to  retrieve  relevant  evidence of  drug  possession.  Accordingly, we reverse the court of appeals’ decision.  Because we hold that the evidence retrieved  from  the  search  must be  suppressed,  we  remand  to  the  district  court  for  a  new trial.

The old strip, squat, and peek is on the rise in Australia's stupid drug war

From the first link:
 

Quote

 

...data, obtained by the Redfern Legal Centre, reveals that since 2016 there have been 3,919 strip-searches by police on women in NSW. Young women aged 25 and under accounted for almost half the searches, while the oldest woman strip-searched was 72 years old.

...

The LECC is currently reviewing whether it is legal for officers to force people to squat during a strip-search, a common practice used by police in NSW. In September, the police published a new personal search manual for the first time which allows officers to instruct people to squat, lift their testicles or breasts, or part their buttock cheeks.

...

In NSW, police are permitted to carry out field strip-searches only if the urgency and seriousness of the situation requires it. In the case of minors, a parent, guardian or support person must be present during the search unless it’s necessary for the safety of the person or to prevent evidence being destroyed.

...

The data obtained by the RLC shows that of the almost 4,000 strip-searches conducted on women since 2016, 66% found nothing.

 

Just as in the USA's stupid drug war, preventing the destruction of evidence has been elevated to become a concern that is equal to protecting the safety of individuals. A screwed up sense of priorities IMO but drug warriors worldwide say it's necessary.
