Trooper Fired For Cavity Searching Women In Bikinis Driving Back From Beach Reinstated, 'Was Just Following Orders'

Trooper Jennie Bui was just "following the orders of a senior officer" when she inserted her fingers into two womens' privates in two outrageously invasive body cavity searches on the side of the highway, so Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw gave her her job back.

While "I was just following orders" was found to be an indefensible position during the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, when it comes to the Texas DPS, knowing you will blindly follow any order no matter how criminal makes you more than qualified for the job.

From the Dallas Mourning News:
Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw reinstated a female officer who was sued and placed before a grand jury after she conducted a body cavity search on two females stopped for speeding.

McCraw pointed out that the Brazoria County grand jury declined to take action against Trooper Jennie Bui. The trooper was fired in June after “an extensive investigation” into the incident.

But McCraw said Bui was relatively inexperienced and was following the orders of a senior officer, Nathaniel Turner, who was initially suspended but since has been fired.

[...]“While the actions of Trooper Bui constitute misconduct, I believe her actions are mitigated such that she should not be terminated from the agency,” McCraw said.

He further said that, "Turner's conduct was unacceptable, and violated DPS policy and was outside any authorized training provided to Trooper Turner by DPS.”
