I’m late to the party on this one, so I won’t comment too heavily on the Supreme Court’s recent decision that American citizens can be strip-searched after arrests for any infraction whatsoever. (NYT article here)
I’d just like to suggest how we deal with this. If there are any cops out there in the DC area who still believe in the Constitution, please, FUCKING PLEASE, keep your eye on Justice Kennedy, Justice Roberts, Justice Scalia, Justice Roberts, and Justice Thomas. If they break the speed limit by 1 mile per hour, jaywalk, or fail to properly sort their recycling, grab them, arrest them, and strip search them.
After all, they all agreed with this:
People detained for minor offenses can turn out to be the most devious and dangerous criminals. (Op. at 14)
You never know. You can’t be too safe.
