One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
Maybe what he should have (perhaps rightly) protested is the idea that he would be locked up in jail for a warrant issued for a ticket he'd already paid. That? I'd be on his side.
Thank you, Quazi!
Here's the deal. If the prisoner doesn't want to get caught with dope inside a jail, he shouldn't bring dope to the jail. Simple as that. Turns out that it's the prisoner who is the dope in this case.

i've been arrested .. oh, i dunno... 24 times i think.. maybe 25... possibly 26.... a whole bunch of times is the point.
not once while I was in custody in the jailhouse was I not subjected to a strip search.
only one of my charges was serious... the rest were minor bull**** (this was back when bar-fights didn't screw you up for the rest of your life. and neither did getting **** faced falling down drunk).
I understand why I was searched, and to be honest, i'm glad everyone was searched.
sure, it's uncomfortable... well not for me, but for the poor cop who probably isn't paid enough to look as brown-eyes and nutsacks all days long... but it is necessary.
you want to see fear.. check out the face of some young suburban kid getting arrested for something stupid.. check out how he acts when he's in a holding cell with some badass hombres.... the only thing keeping him from pissing his pants is that his bladder is froze up in fear too.
you really don't want this kid in a cell with some gangbangers that are kiestering shanks
so, yeah, i got nothing negative to say about strip searches after you get thrown in to jail... they are necessary...
if we were talking about searching before you are in custody, well, we'd have an entirely different conversation on our hands. ( remember, first comes detention, then arrest, then custody... your rights change with each step)
