Molesters With Badges: "He Was Like, 'Just Unbuckle All Your Clothes,' And Put His Hands Down Inside My Pants." (InformationLiberation) "I've seen drugs concealed on people everywhere so we are going to try and pat them down first, for weapons, and then, if permission granted, we're going to search further," squawked drug task force "commander" Wesley Nunn. Even though Nunn says it might be "embarrassing" for both himself and the victims whose private parts he and his fellow officers are seen on video groping, he says "the bottom end is, I'm looking to where they might conceal drugs."
For Nunn's Georgia drug cops, that means searching women's vaginas, men's genitals, as well as their rectal cavities -- all in public view on the side of the road. Additionally, despite his claim his victims "granted permission" to his groping (which they only "granted" after he threatened them with jail), Nunn acknowledged even if "permission" wasn't "granted," he'd do the same by taking them into custody and searching them in jail.
FOREST PARK, Ga. — Officers are supposed to pull drivers over for traffic violations, but a Channel 2 Action News investigation found traffic stops leading to a violation of another kind.
Driver after driver told investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer officers searched inside their pants while they were stopped for minor traffic violations. In several cases, the invasive searches targeted passengers who were riding in the car.
"He was like, 'Just unbuckle all your clothes,' and put his hands down inside my pants," said Terry Phillips.
Forest Park police had pulled over Phillips' wife for a suspended registration.
Phillips consented to a search. However on the officer's dashboard camera recording Phillips can clearly be heard protesting when he realized the extent of the officer's intentions.
"That's illegal, man, you can't do that. You can't do that," said Phillips to the officer. The officer continued.
WSBTV notes no drugs were found on any of the victims molested by these officers. If they were, would that have justified the cops' violations? Perhaps "legally," but certainly not morally. The war on drugs presumes people have no right to do what they want with their own body, therefor government sanctioned serial-molestation is deemed "justified."
