New Mexico … a man leaves a WalMart and rolls a stop sign. The police stop him and he gets out of the car, apparently clinching his butt cheeks. This is kind of understandable as a nervous reaction.
So the police suspect that he is hiding drugs up his butt and they get a warrant to have him examined. The first hospital declines on ethical grounds so they find another hospital, where he undergoes xrays and probes (more than one) and eventually gets sedated and colonoscopied (yeah, I know that’s not a word) …
So New Mexico is taking a page out of the easy coast’s shameful stop and frisk policies, but are renaming it to stop and fist ;-) ... Obviously, they are having some trouble with the concept.
Seriously … things like this seem to be happening with disturbing frequency in the USA. Watch the video … they mention other recent violations of personal rights and freedoms. They even use the term “police state” to describe the mood in the US recently, and I find that terribly sad. How could a beacon of freedom fall so far so quickly?
