From Flyover Press: Texas State Trooper sued. Allegedly conducts roadside cavity search on two women using same glove

In General Information on December 19, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Yikes! I don’t even know where to begin on this one. Dr. LaBaume was so thunderstruck by the report that he asked, “Two questions: 1) What kind of sick, perverted son-of-a-bitch does it take to hold a job like this? and 2) Why do we put up with it?”

 

Dr. Stanley Milgram answered LaBaume’s first question over forty years ago: “Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority.” In short, a police academy trainer, a field training officer, or a member of the command staff told the trooper these kinds of searches are a ‘necessary part of the job’ AND either implied or directly stated that results (arrests) are necessary unless the trooper wants to give up their status as an enforcer.

We put up with it, and we will likely put up with much more…because of the process of institutionalization, implemented by: depersonalization of the individual, forced obedience to rules, destruction of the self, threat of (or actual) physical assault, and control of aspects of life.

Two Texas women are suing after state troopers subjected them to a humiliating and invasive ‘roadside body cavity search‘ that was caught on video.

Female trooper Kellie Helleson is seen in the footage aggressively searching the private parts of Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece, Ashley Dobbs, 24, in front of passing cars.

The women, who claim the trooper used the same rubber glove for both of them, were initially stopped by Helleson’s colleague David Farrell on State Highway 161 near Irving after he saw one of them throw a cigarette butt out the window.

Farrell can be heard in the disturbing video questioning the pair about marijuana though he failed to find any evidence of the drug in the vehicle.

However, he requested the women be searches after allegedly claiming they were ‘acting weird.’

The lawsuit states he then tried to ‘morph this situation into a DWI investigation,’ according to the Dallas Morning News.

Angel Dobbs passed a roadside sobriety test and the women were given warnings for littering.

Angel Dobbs said Helleson irritated an anal cyst she suffers from during the search, causing her ‘severe and continuing pain and discomfort.’

The suit said: ‘Angel Dobbs was overwhelmed with emotion and a feeling of helplessness and reacted stating that Helleson had just violated her in a most horrific manner.’

The two women are also suing the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, Steven McCraw, who they claim ignored previous complaints about ‘unlawful strip searches, cavity searches and the like.’

The Dobbs’ lawyer Scott H. Palmer said the shocking incident, which was filmed on one of the trooper’s dash-mounted cameras, was a roadside ‘sexual assault.’

He said the Texas Rangers investigated his clients’ complaints but failed to take any action against the troopers.

‘You can see what’s happening clearly,’ he told the Dallas Morning News of the video. ‘No one’s ever seen the likes of this. We can’t let them get away with it.’VIDEO
