no longer merely a fashion statement

Our pants are coming down for real.
In an exclusive interview with Philips, the passenger in the car said members of the Red Dog unit pulled over his friend's vehicle and forced the driver, Shawn Venegas, to pull down his pants on the side of the road in broad daylight. He says officers conducted a body cavity search for drugs on Venegas. No drugs were ever found, passenger Brian Kidd said.

“They went to his bottom part. That’s as low as you can go. I don’t think anybody should be subjected to that kind of search,” Kidd said. “I had to look away because I couldn’t watch my friend be done like that.”

Kidd told Philips that an officer also reached down his pants searching his private parts for drugs.

Venegas said he was so traumatized by the incident that he moved to another state.

"I feel molested, and I feel like I was raped," Venegas told Philips in a phone interview.

“There’s absolutely no justification under these or any other circumstances, even if they had shown any kind of resistance to the officers, to make Shawn take his pants and underwear down in the middle of a city street,” attorney Mark Bullman said.
Doesn't take an attorney to tell you that... but seeing as how an average of six people a day die as a result of contact with police in the United States, what was Venegas to do? Hmmm?

  1. So true, so true:

    [Yesterday] A routine domestic violence complaint turned bizarre early Sunday when an Elk Grove police officer shot a handcuffed suspect in the back of a patrol car, inflicting minor injuries.

    Police said the suspect, John M. Hesselbein, 32, was grazed in the face after being shot at close range with a rifle. Hesselbein was being disruptive in the squad car, and an officer opened the back door in an effort to calm him.

    At that point another officer standing by the side of the vehicle shot Hesselbein with a rifle.

    Officer Christopher Trim, a spokesman for the Elk Grove police, said it wasn't clear why the officer shot Hesselbein. The shooting didn't appear to be accidental, he said.

  2. Makes me NUTS! I still haven't gotten over hearing the conversation between a couple of our hick pigs here. Scary shit.
