UPDATE: Why You Should Know Your Rights

Good. I hope they go to jail. Them, and every other power-mad public official in the country.

DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – CBS-11 has learned two state troopers involved in a controversial roadside cavity search of two North Texas women have been indicted on criminal charges by a Dallas County Grand Jury.

CBS-11 has learned that one of the troopers, Kelley Helleson, who left the courthouse after testifying Friday, is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

No police officer is entitled to give you a cavity search for suspicion of possession of marijuana. Once you have been arrested and are being introduced into a holding facility/jail, they can perform a cavity search to prevent the introduction of controlled substances to their facility. They do not have those rights before you are arrested.

      He/she was thinkin’ that he/she just enforces the law as he/she sees fit…he/she does NOT have to obey it. He/she is allowed to do whatever he/she wants with impunity.

    By the way, there is an enormous difference between being arrested and being detained.

    The mentality (I can do what I want) with police these days is out of control. Especially the recent police harrassment of the dad who posted picture of his son on facebook holding his .22 calibr rifle. I’m surprised justice is being service on this incident considering the majority of the time the system protects these gorillas.
