Brandy Hamilton, 26, and Alexandria Randle, 24, say their civil rights were violated by the invasive search Texas Department of Public Safety trooper ordered the body cavity search because he smelled marijuana and allegedly found the end of a blunt The women say that the female trooper used the same glove to search inside both of them =============
Disturbing video shows two women in bikinis being subjected to body cavity searches on the side of a Texas highway after they were stopped returning from a weekend at the beach.
Brandy Hamilton, 26, and Alexandria Randle, 24, are suing the Texas Department of Public Safety and the sheriff of Brazoria County, Texas, where the stop occurred. Their lawyer alleges that the search was meant to humiliate them and was conducted without probable cause.
The female officer who performed the invasive search, which included sticking a finger in the women's vaginas, is accused of using the same pair of gloves to search both women. The entire 40-minute traffic stop was caught on the trooper's dashboard camera.
Attorney Allie R. Booker told MailOnline her client's case is startling similar to a July 2012 case in Dallas in which DPS trooper Kelly Helleson aggressively searched, Angel Dobbs and her niece, Ashley Dobbs - including giving them a body cavity search and not changing gloves between searching the two women.

How many more are there?
Never mind.. I went to the link.
They are Guilty.
Trust me, this one is better without pictures.
Even he-who-shall-not-be-named wouldn’t hit it...
OK, FRiend, what is your opinion of this case — professional police work or intimidating overkill? (Imagine this was your wife or daughter...)
There are pics at the link. Ugh wish I hadn’t clicked it.
Yeah me too.. Yuck!
BCS with out arrest is I think very very wrong.
If its that probable arrest and take facility do NOT do this in the field.
This should make them rich.
But it won’t be enough unless the two officers are fired and prosecuted.

You didn’t ask but I think the cops went a bit beyond the line (but not as far as the suspects would have us believe).
But every time the cops go over the line, we lose a bit more of the remnants of the 4th Amendment.
Must be a policy in Texas. Although the last cops to do this were fired.
Thanks for the heads up.
That a bunch of BS is what it is. Texas needs to cut the chit!
Just moronic. They should have cuffed both women and brought them back to the station for the search.
