Court: No Immunity for Officers Who Arrested Pro-Life Advocates

October 20, 2010 06:35

The officers had handcuffed and arrested the 18 pro-life advocates for sharing a peaceful pro-life message along a public street in August 2008. Among those arrested were three young women who were later shackled, strip-searched, and detained overnight.

“Once in custody, three young women among the group arrested – two of whom were teenagers – were subjected to two rounds of strip searches. Only after the strip searches and a night spent in jail were they told why they were arrested.  A week after their release, the state dropped the charges ultimately filed against them:  loitering, disorderly conduct, and failure to obey a lawful order. ”
