Reminder: Arrest and Strip Search Go Together

Email Print

An Indian diplomat arrested in New York City was subjected to a strip search before being jailed for a day with drug addicts while making bail.

This strip search is a reminder of what Americans who are arrested may encounter. The strip search was legalized by the U.S. Supreme Court on April 2, 2012. The Court disemboweled the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, declaring that strip searches are not unreasonable even when police have no reasonable suspicion of a crime that justifies the search.

The Congress took no action to impeach the justices who approved this policy. They are Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas. The Executive took no action to suggest enlarging the court and packing it with justices who might actually favor rights.
