Why “Criminals” Should Have Rights, Cont’d

Note to self: stay the hell out of New Mexico! First, the multiple anal probes looking for drugs. Now this story:

According to court records, police arrested Tapia for a probation violation tied to a previous drug case. While at the Metropolitan Detention Center, Tapia said two officers strip searched her and asked her to bend over at the waist. That’s when they noticed a plastic baggie protruding from Tapia’s vagina.

Instead of taking Tapia to a doctor to have the baggie removed, she said one of the officers – Blanca Zapater – sprayed a chemical agent directly on her genitals twice.

Simonson said the chemical agent was mace.

Tapia said she suffered “severe pain that lasted for several weeks including burning, swollen genitals and painful urination,” according to the court records.

New Mexico is proof that when law enforcement doesn’t respect the rights of criminals, they will treat everyone like criminals.
