The TSA Was Supposed to Prepare You For Routine Sexual Violations

‘Violated’: Women Subjected to ‘Roadside Body Cavity Search’ During Routine Traffic Stop (And Dash Cam Caught It All) | Video |

Two Texas women, Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece Ashley Dobbs, 24 are suing the TX State Troopers for unlawfully searching their body cavities along the side of the highway, this past July.

The dash cam of the cop car recorded it for all the world to see.  You can determine that the search actually occurred  if you desire to follow the link at the top.

A detail mentioned in the story is that the same latex gloves were used by officer Kelley Helleson to search both women vaginally and anally. The women were initially pulled over by officer David Farrell  for throwing cigarette butts out the window.

It’s like that with the TSA also.    If you have a concern to avoid sexually transmitted infections, you might wish to consider this when flying, and now, when taking a road trip through Texas.


Sex-crime victim faces jail and fines for tweeting her attackers’ names

Savannah Dietrich felt that the group of guys who molested her when she was passed out at a party got off too easy.   Judge  Dee McDonald,who made the decision,  in juvenile court,  placed a broad gag order that barred Dietrich from speaking about  what happened to her at the party. The case involves two males under the age of 18, who assaulted Dietrich while she was passed out, and shared pictures of the event with others.

In her frustration over the light sentence for her attackers, Dietrich revealed their names on Twitter.

From the Louisville Journal Courier:

“They said I can’t talk about it or I’ll be locked up,” Dietrich tweeted. “So I’m waiting for them to read this and lock me up. ____ justice.

“Protect rapist is more important than getting justice for the victim in Louisville.”

Dietrich might now face  fines and up to six months in jail, for contempt of court.   While a decision is being made in her case, the lawyers of the perpetrators, , Chris Klein and David Mejia,  have asked for a continuance of the existing gag order.

Completely gagging the victim from speaking about what had happened to her confers more  psychological  punishment upon her than to the perpetrators, who will  likely be serving time in juvenile detention.

Suggestions by supposed experts were that the victim should spend her own money and resources to fight the decision of the judge, so that she can be  allowed  to speak to  clergy, counselors or others who could render assistance for her probable substance abuse problem, and the accompanying damage from sexual abuse.

Perhaps some feel that a girl who passes out at a party is fair game to all the guys who are incapable of normal sexual relationships. While Dietrich was wrong to place herself in a compromising position,  she does not deserve a jail sentence for speaking about the aftermath.

Perhaps if the sexual offenses had been  taken seriously,  the court would not be considered ‘contemptible’ by the Savannah Dietrich and the general public.

Armchair Ethicists JUDGE Texas Man Who Beat Daughter’s ‘Molester’ to Death

Dad Accused of Beating Daughter's 'Molester' to Death Is No Hero | The Stir.

A Shiner, Texas father is the talk of the country for beating to death a man who was sexually assaulting his four year old daughter.

At the Stir, they’re generating hits by discussing what this man should have done, after the fact.

Given the available information, Pharmer would judge the father as neither a hero nor criminal. Paternal instincts took over, and he beat the man whom he observed assaulting his daughter. The ‘pedophile’ died of his injuries.
The Dad has to live with having seen a horrible thing done to his daughter, and with taking the ‘molester’s’ life during the act of stopping the assault.
(Incidentally, if this man had shot the molester once with a gun and killed him, there would not be the endless discussion of how many times he should have been allowed to hit the perp.)
Fortunately Texas law is reasonable with respect to self defense, and is not likely to add further misery to this family’s life.

Updates: The girl’s age has been corrected to five years. More details on the incident are HERE. Further evidence affirms that the girl was being raped.

News that the father will not be tried for murder is HERE, and remarkably the media is restraining itself from identifying the father and daughter in the case, or trying to turn it into a race war.

Egypt court orders end to ‘virginity tests’

Egypt court orders end to ‘virginity tests’.

A Court in Cairo has decided in favor of  Samira Ibrahim, and ordered the Egyptian military to stop the “virginity tests” on female detainees.

The tests were supposedly done to protect soldiers from rape charges.

The  examinations, done on prisoners from Tahrir Square demonstrations,  were  sufficiently invasive that they  amounted to inflicting  sexual assault to prove that none  had occurred.

From Al-Jazeera:

“In May, an army general, speaking to CNN television on condition of anonymity, defended the practice.”

“”We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” he said.”

Strauss-Khan, head of International Monetary Fund, Arrested for Rape

Top French politician, International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn charged with attempted rape –

Apparently the 62 year old Dominique Strauss-Khan could not control himself.  He is said to have jumped a house keeper in his Manhattan hotel room, and performed an illegal sex act on her.  She has since  been treated  at Roosevelt  Hospital for trauma, and Strauss Kahn was pulled from his flight at the JFK  Airport and arrested.

French President, Nicholas  Sarkozy has one less rival  facing him in the next election cycle.    Expect the Socialist party of France to blame Sarkozy for this scandal in New York,  and call it part of a smear campaign.

Update: The hotel housekeeper picked Strauss-Khan out of a lineup, and more details HERE
