 Strip search - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 No. 00-3524
The circuit court concluded that the strip search of Wallace violated the statute because Wallace was not a "detained person," as the statute defines the term, and because the search was not authorized by the chief of police as the statute requires.
In it, Wallace said that he had consented to a strip search; that he was not threatened or coerced into consenting to the search; that the cocaine was his; and that he was going to use the money obtained from selling the cocaine to rent a car.
Given the conceded distinction between the two types of searches, as well as the heightened level of scrutiny with which we are to view police conduct involving highly intrusive body cavity searches, we are unwilling to hold that a valid consent to the former always suffices as a consent to the latter.

 Students win $450K settlement due to strip search
Before the strip search even occurred, the government had already forced the boys to attend school, forced their parents to pay for the school via taxation, forced the boys to change their clothes and exercise (via gym class), and likely didn't let them use the restroom without permission.
The strip search was prompted by a teacher who accused the four boys of stealing her ring.
Shocked by the search and the minimal punishment against the administrator, the boys and their parents retaliated by filing a federal civil rights suit against the board of education and the administrator.

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- A federal appeals court has upheld a judge's ruling that a strip search of elementary school pupils was unconstitutional but that a teacher and a police officer involved could not be sued for conducting the search.
