cavity search marijuana texas petition white houseA new White House petition has been started and brought to my attention by a very hardworking activist named TriXter Phillips. TriXter sent me a guest post during the election that I wasn’t able to post due to time conflicts, and for that I am truly, truly sorry. Hardworking activists need to be supported as much as possible, and sadly, I dropped the ball. I encourage ALL TWB readers to sign this petition and spread it far and wide! Below is the language to the petition. Click here to sign it.

Constitutionally protect Americans from police roadside body cavity searches for marijuana, contraband, or evidence.

Recently video from a traffic stop in Texas shows State Troopers conducting roadside body cavity searches performed on two women with the officer using the same gloves on both the vaginal and anal cavities of both individuals.

We the People of the United States of America do hereby request that you and your office work with Congress to pass legislation protecting the sovereignty of the human body by drafting and then passing a Constitutional Amendment that shall prevent law enforcement from conducting any body cavity searches.

    the roadside cavity search was nothing more than a policewoman doing her job to be the best of her ability and training…and two “bitches” looking to moan and start some drama. nothing more. happens every single day. much like this. but this is the only only we hear of?….ri i i i i ght..;-)

    think for yourselves people and wake the @#$% up….lolol

      She was doing her job, when she didn’t change gloves? yeah. Also, you need a warrant when it comes to pulling someone over. A cop doesn’t know what’s in that car. They aren’t riding. Past occurrences of drugs would cause the need for that. So unless she had a warrant or they gave permission (and I don’t know ANYONE that would give permission for a cavity search, would you?) she had no permission to do what she did. Get yah facts straight.

      Think for YOUR self, and wake the fuck up…. lolol

      • AnnoyedFormerDispatcher

        Actually, they do NOT need a warrant when pulling someone over to do a search. They are required to search if there is any reason to suspect. I used to work as a dispatcher, and numerous times out of suspected drug stops we had to send female officers for cavity searches of female suspects. You truly do not know much about the system, Gary, if you think you are correct.

        While I do not know the specifics of this particular case (and let’s face it, NONE of us do, we weren’t there, and we only have one side of the story), I will say most likely Morgan is correct, and this officer was simply doing her job as she has been trained to do. Does it mean I agree with the procedure, no. However, if the officer fails to follow SOP, then she will lose her job. Think about it.

        • JK

          So, once again, not changing gloves while body cavity searching, is doing her job???? Nice to see you don’t care much about our personal liberties but not surprising as you worked around LEO and probably brainwashed. Maybe it would be different if it was you and your daughter in this situation? One side of the story??? The videotape and victim’s statements says it all. Did the police ever respond to this? Probably not because they feel they are above the law and can trample people’s rights whenever they wish. Sickening.

        • steve

          ive thought about it. and american police are public slaves not masters. they are overstepping their boundries. they have no rights as citizens when they put on that badge. you want change in this country from being free. then move somewhere that you can have you so beloved perverse society. communist piece of crap. get out of our free country.

        • MrsTrish

          Stop justifying inexcusable actions because it’s someone’s job. I would rather be homeless on the street than do something to morally wrong.

The best of her ability and training?! where the hell is HER gyno?! whats wrong with the world is IGNORANT and CLOSE MINDED people who are frightened to find out that what they thought was protecting them is actually harming them.
      You, are a fucking moron, and i HOPE someone sticks a nasty used glove up your friggin genitals!

    you dont need an ammendment to uphold your ALREADY GUARANTEED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

    • steve

      thats right.. same with all this crap they are doing. we have laws. basic laws. life liberty and the persuit of happiness. they are trying to be so complex with laws so we wont know what they are. we have a right to carry guns with out your retarded permits. we have immagration laws…. stop changing the laws for force and simply uphold the laws that we have

      • steve

        im sorry. i meant the laws we had. because the laws we have are just taking respect from police. a cop better have back up if he wants to fondle me cause i’ll kick his badge wearing bitch ass

        • http://www.facebook.com/bob.w.knight Bob William Knight

          i like your attitude and same goes for me and lots of people i know . and i know some tough people. somesay well see the video of some cop tryin it on the wrong guy lol

  • steve

    this is the basics. it takes a certain personality to want any job. so you get a “force” of power tripping perverts who cant wait for another cavity search. so there are no “bad cops” they are all involved supporting each other. and if they are just doing their jobs then we need to call them preditors..

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1495312913 Sarah Redwolf Seiler

      which is frightening because my pervert creep twin brother (who admitted to watching me through my door knob) is actually doing ride-alongs and making friends with the local force. OBVIOUSLY there is NO psychiatric screening when applying for any position in there since no one seems to notice his power displays and struggles, not to mention his extremely bigoted ways of seeing the world and the people and animals in it. (AND he -has never- and refuses -to ever- speak to a therapist or doctor of mental health.) not to mention his favorite past-time besides hanging out(and drinking) with 15 year old boys, is getting drunk and shooting small animals for fun.
      great future cop right there….NOT

  • RZN420LA

    yeah but these so called laws for our own good are taking away our freedoms every day…
    Whats next…
    i live this country but, sometimes i wanna…

  • Rob Strange

    I believe cops are overstepping there boundaries as Law Enforcement!! They have no right to be doing that, they believe that because they wear a badge they can treat us the way they do. As a Veteran, I believe that this is a free Country that I fought for to keep it free. Its not free for the said Law Enforcement to take advantage of there power. Doing that over a Marijuana charge is bullshit…. Thats not even a fucking drug. There are worse things out there they should worry about besides some weed!!! I say FUCK THE POLICE and FUCK THE LAW!!!!!!!

    Sincerely,
    SSG Strange

  • Katefarmgal

    Did anyone check to see if the male cop was getting his jollies off of it? That is just gross and disgusting. I’d like to take those two cops and exchange their fluids with each other. Since he doesn’t have a vagina he gets an ass to mouth transference.

  • SAM

    HAY YOU ALL GET THE BLACK LAW BOOK IT TELLS WHAT IS AND WHAT CAN BE .ITS WAS BACK IN THE 1800 THAT THIS BOOK WAS PUT TOGATER FOR YOUR RIGHTS ,THE LAW DON,T WHANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS

  • slimnkc

  • http://www.facebook.com/terry.pepper.18 Terry Pepper

    what could the law do if they refuse ? hold them 4 interference of a investigation ? they the cops sure come up with some stuff . they used 2 be even more brutall 25 years ago . now they r using their power as excuses even 2 ride without seatbelts because when they get a call about a robbery they can get out of the car faster its all bullcrap & they will always harass folks over what other people have started like cavity serches .

    Reading through some of the commentary I feel compelled to mention the main intent of this is to force the Presidents administration to publically comment on the matter to maintain the pressure to end cannabis prohibition.

    I do understand the frustrations people feel and I know we should not need a Constitutional Amendment to protect our 4th Amendment rights. Therefore, you may consider this my attempt at bringing about a dialog that focuses on another aspect of how cannabis prohibition fought through the War on Drugs(Humanity) violates our rights as American citizens and, to a larger extent, our rights as human beings.

  • techguy4reel

    well looks like texas will be loosing some money,the truly sadd part was the way we view this plant,we have been duped by the federal goverment for so many years we just think they know whats best for us,personlly i say we need to wake up and see what is truley going on in our staes by the very people who are swron to protect us from things like this happening,my farther was a san fransico police officer now dont misunderstand me he always upheld the laws but he always told me no one is ever above the law no one and that even means law enforcment,these officers do not speak for all the police in texas or any other state they are people just just all of us only they up hold the laws that we make as ctizens of this country like my dad would say if you dont like a law then change it,its up to the people of the united states of america to tell the goverment what it should do not the other way around.

    Now both cops have been suspended with
    pay. They should have both been fired
    immediately and charged with assault.
