Talk about invasive

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2008 at 11:37 AM

Thanks to the vigilant Iconoclast for noting this story in the Morning News on a lawsuit filed against the city of Siloam Springs. Its cops apparently have been doing strip- and body-cavity searches of people arrested for minor offenses. Blanket strip search policies, without reasonable cause, are unconstitutional, if you didn't know.

The Iconoclast comments: "Siloam has given a new meaning to rectitude."
