By April 9, 2012

Follow me on:

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that jailers do not need any suspicion or probable cause to strip search anyone who is being detained. The court's ruling could potentially affect thousands of non-criminal offenders who are arrested each year.

Do you agree with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling regarding strip searches?

  1. Yes.
  2. No.
  3. Undecided.

I believe that law enforcement officers should be allowed to strip search individuals who are being detained, not only for the protection of the officers but the safety of others as well. In addition, more contraband is brought into jails by those being detained,than any other method.
