get ready to disrobe

You have heard, I assume, about the supreme court ruling allowing strip searches for any reason no matter how minor.  Totalitarian implications aside, here is the quote from Justice Kennedy that boggles my mind (quoted from The New York Times):

Justice Kennedy responded that “people detained for minor offenses can turn out to be the most devious and dangerous criminals.” He noted that Timothy McVeigh, later put to death for his role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, was first arrested for driving without a license plate. “One of the terrorists involved in the Sept. 11 attacks was stopped and ticketed for speeding just two days before hijacking Flight 93,” Justice Kennedy added.

So is the learned Justice suggesting that if McVeigh had been strip searched the Oklahoma Bombings would have been avoided? Or that 9/11 would have been stopped if the speeding terrorist had submitted to a roadside colonoscopy?

So, strip searching is going to reduce crime is it?  Then here is a list of all people who should be strip searched on a daily basis in order to avoid any unpleasantries:

Every student in every school in the country…right after the pledge of allegiance during home room
Every CEO and CFO of any corporation grossing more than one million dollars annually
Meredith Salinger (’round my place after tea)
Anyone watching any reality TV show (these people are ready to snap at any moment)
Every single politician in the country – perhaps hourly.

  1. Cooper, Cooper, Cooper. You know, don’t you, that Tim McVeigh hid an entire truckload of fertilizer bomb materials under his shirt (he looked a little bit pregnant).

    Glad this fired you up too. They take away the 4th Amendment, and let the 2nd rule the country.

  2. good god, there goes the 4th amendment. strip search justice kennedy. we don’t know what the hell he has under that robe, certainly not a brain. oh and i just got summoned for jury duty for criminal court today. why do i feel my PTSD flaring up?

  3. Remember your Mom asking you if you had clean underwear on before you left the house? Is this what they meant?

  4. So many people ask, “How did Hitler Happen?” We are watching it right now…from the comfort of our living rooms…one ruling at a time. Thank you for sharing.
