The story I heard was not contraband but harassment. Strip searches are a great new legal way to do this little
pay back.

One of the demonstrator. You know who they are. Well some of them are marked from over familiarity....
and one happened to be driving with his girl friend who was speeding. She got stopped. O.K. all legal.

But the passenger her boy friend was asked to step out of the car. He had a speeding ticket still due but it had been paid and this was an error. However, until this was proven he was locked up and STRIP SEARCHED in two different jails.

Hardly for contraband was it ?

Did anyone see the wound on this "enhanced" video that the police released?

I didn't, but my eyes are pretty bad.

I wonder what issues God has with Texas? :-)

Clearly He has become a liberal...

Speaking of Texas, water issues were discussed on Diane Rehm today (much of Texas desperately needs some water; Rick Perry's prayer day just didn't do the trick last summer, I guess he should have invited Pat Robertson who, as we all know, has a direct line to the Old Man)--

Environmental Outlook: Water & Global Security

Listen to show at the link:

The American intelligence community recently released a report warning that problems with water could destabilize various regions of the world over the next decade. The earth's rising population, climate change, and poor water management have put pressure on water supplies. On this month's Environmental Outlook, we look at global water security and water shortages in the U.S.

My take on this is that during a war a command can not investigate itself for incidents that happen in units under its control. It's too much of a conflict of interest.

The correct way to do this would be to bring an Inspector General (IG) unit (which operates under a separate chain of command) to do this. And bringing in an IG Unit would have to be initiated, IMHO, by a Command who has a stake in correcting an apparent wrong--or something that has become a major "distraction".

One has to remember also that for enlisted soldier to get to IG personnel in a combat situation like VN would not be the easiest thing in the world. He would be "hassled" about it all along the way.

Agree with a lot of what you say, but one has to remember not all drugs are benign.
