The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.  Determining "reasonableness" of searches has been a strong focal point of the United States Supreme Court throughout history.

Search and seizure laws have long been a big interest of mine.  From traffic stops, to DUI checkpoints, to home and car searches, our Fourth Amendment rights protect us from unreasonable intrusion by law enforcement.  We cannot be stopped at all without reasonable suspicion and a search that goes beyond a pat down for weapons requires probable cause.  Still, these protections have been undermined to the point that we don't have the freedom we were promised.

I'm just going to throw a rule out there and see if the Court will some day catch up to it.  Reaching into someones anus or vagina to find drugs is per se unreasonable.  Why would we permit sexual assault or battery in order to prevent drug possession?  And when that drug is marijuana, we're talking about pure insanity. 

Thomas Jefferson would write a new Declaration of Independence if he saw this video.  And if anyone belongs in Prison, it's cops like these.
