This time in El Paso. Apparently being 'secure in our persons' is a quaint concept.
A dog alerted to the woman, and Schaur Ives said federal agents stripped searched her at the facility, asked her to undress, to spread her genitalia and to cough. Female agents also allegedly pressed their fingers into her vagina looking for drugs.
The woman claims they didn't discover anything during the on-site strip search, so they took her to University Medical Center of El Paso.
"First, medical staff observed her making a bowl movement and no drugs were found at that point," Schaur Ives said. "They then took an X-ray, but it did not reveal any contraband. They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual--two handed. Finally, they did a cat scan. Again, they found nothing."
Even with consent and cooperation getting two hands into those areas is a challenge. But to do that to someone without consent is torture and the last thing I want my government doing.
Perhaps using a device, a dog, that is wrong up to 50% of the time isn't the best way to decide who is carrying contraband. I know it isn't the dogs fault, I'm aware they live to please. Unfortunately our culture is exploiting that aspect of dogs in order to justify molestation of citizens going about their buisness.
