Strip-searched teachers sue

News & Politics

"This is outrageous!" writes Pamela, "On September 3, 2004, two female teachers, both in their 50’s were arrested at a Bush campaign and subsequently STRIP-SEARCHED at the local county jail." The two women were apparently singled out, not for the suspicious gun-like bulges in their trenchcoats, but for the antiwar bumper sticker on their car. "The lawsuit claims the women's rights to free speech, free assembly, equal protection and due process were violated, and that federal agents conspired with local and state law enforcement to deprive them of those rights."
