thereitis's Journal: Strip searches for minor offences

Journal by thereitis

Unpaid parking tickets? Thatâ(TM)s a strip search. And no leash on your doggie? Thatâ(TM)s a strip search too. It might sound weird, and a wee bit terrifying, but thatâ(TM)s the verdict out of the United States Supreme Court this week.
