    On one hand, yeah that is pretty "invasive" and rough treatment, especially given that she is merely accused and not yet convicted of anything.


    OTOH, yes enough weave could be used to make a garrote with which to attack other inmates or guards, or a noose to hang oneself with. I can see where it might have been classified as something risky to allow the inmate to retain possession of... and in most cases, EVERYTHING is taken from an inmate prior to incarceration.

    I don't remember weave being an issue in my LE days, but that was long enough ago that weave wasn't so commonplace.
    I'm guessing it wasn't in the employee handbook or the regs b/c that would have been her ''out''. I'm also curious to know why the charges were dropped against the girl? Wonder if it was a case of mistaken identity, not enough proof, etc.

    Yeah I don't know. Weave is very common now, not so much two decades ago. If I run across any female ofc's I know I think I'll ask if they know what the policy is on weave for newly arrested inmates... I can see it being problematic in some cases, at least in theory.

    I would bet so. It was going to cost the department a ****load of money, no matter who won. It was easier to just let the perp walk and pick her up on the next offense; not to mention the PR value.

    Just imagine the **** storm from a prisoner killing someone, or herself, with her weave. That's a lawsuit that you can't just walk away from, as they did in this scenario.

    Still not sure how a weave is structurally different from strips of sheet that anyone can tear off with their teeth.

    Probably just hack dominance BS.

    Why allow a prisoner to possess more weapons than necessary? Or, would that make too much sense?

    Or dignity. Or their fairly expensive property.

    Ummm, sorry, that seems utterly excessive and beyond the pale to me. When you come down to it, even the clothes on their back "could be used" to strangle someone or commit suicide. Inmates are not forced to run around naked.

    Weaves cost literally hundreds of dollars, are glued to the scalp and stitched to one's own hair. I guaran-damn-tee that having that thing ripped off her scalp in a few seconds hurt like holy hell. Glad the officer was fired, but what about the rest of her colleagues who stood around watching this vicious assault? Bah.
