I too was stripped seached at the Schenectady County Jail in 2003, I was pregnant, had no history of violence, and I am currantly the Director of a Community Center in Troy. The officers also made me bend and spread myself several times claiming they thought they saw something.

I think strip searches have to be done. if you were an inmate, would you want another inmate with a weapon? I think its about security for both the staff and the inmates. More about strip searches here

Glad to see all of you gettin paid. Strip searches are done for everyone's protection. Hopefully you won't find yourself stabbed in the throat or doin the funky chicken after you snorted some bad come or H that came from a piece of plastic that was inside of some POS' ass. That will be the police's fault though right. Be productive and don't go to jail.
