A federal judge has ruled that police officers and a physician who medically paralyzed a man to conduct a cavity search for drugs in Tennessee are not immune from prosecution.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/YsTsNq) the 2010 cavity search at the Oak Ridge Methodist Medical Center did turn up cocaine, and Felix Booker was charged with a federal drug crime.
The 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals tossed out the case, however, saying the search “shocked the conscience” and violated the Constitution.
Booker filed a civil-rights lawsuit naming several authorities in the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and Oak Ridge Police Department, and the physician involved.
The defendants’ attorneys have argued they’re immune from prosecution because they were just doing their jobs.
Americans actually believe this….
US-led coalition airstrikes destroyed grain silos and other targets in parts of northern and eastern Syria dominated by Islamic State, killing civilians while only wounding ISIS fighters, according to an organization monitoring war in Syria.
The overnight bombings hit mills and grain storage facilities in Manbij, a militant-held town in northern Syria. Coalition forces possibly mistook the structures for Islamic State holdings, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Monday.
28th straight day of 13 hours days at work and only about 4 more weeks to go. This waking up at 3:50am and not getting home until 8:00pm is getting old. The only good thing is I’m finally off that 170ft tall tower, its been kicking my ass the more tired I get. I hate all them damn ladders on that thing.
Police are beyond out of control!
