Wait - what am I talking about? Consider (CLICK) this article regarding a recent lawsuit won by prisoners strip-searched:
"The Cook County Board today approved a $55.3 million settlement in a class-action civil lawsuit alleging that thousands of inmates at the county jail were improperly strip searched....
The attorneys representing the former jail inmates will be paid $15 million, Driscoll said. The rest will go to up to 400,000 inmates jailed between Jan. 30, 2004 and March 19, 2009."
Now consider this article describing the pat-down of a toddler:
" Why was Mandy searched in the first place? She started crying when she was asked to put her teddy bear through the X-ray machine. This made it difficult for her to walk calmly through the metal detector and she set the machine off twice, which meant she "must be hand-searched."
Finally - and I ask you to remember the lawsuit mentioned above - won by the prisoners - look at the actions of the TSA regarding a man who recently refused their insane paranoia-based groping of the American citizenry:
"The Transportation Security Administration has opened an investigation targeting John Tyner, the Oceanside man who left Lindbergh Field under duress on Saturday morning after refusing to undertake a full body scan.
