It's cruel and unusual punishment. Leave it to the Supreme Court to be the enemy of the people. Our court will condone torture for the weak and weary and reward the wealthy and priviledged. That is life in these united states.

WHAT THE FREAK?? Yes, they should be strip searched beore entering a jail cell. Afterall, they could pull a knife and kill an unsuspecting guard just doing their job. These criminals committed a crime and that's how they wound up going to jail in the frst place. They are no longer law abiding citizens, they are thieves, murderers, rapists, drug-users and stalkers. They gave up their personal privacy rights when they they did evil deeds. Why should we continue to baby these criminals and treat them like royalty. We are paying for their room and board as taxpayers we have to have our say-so also.ROCK ON!

I think they should have the right to strip search but shouldn't do it as mandatory either. I'm not disagreeing with the first two sentences of your post but the rest of your post assumes guilt before being proven guilty. It's okay to take the necessary precautions but we are still a nation of innocent until proven guilty, supposedly. You wouldn't like it if you were arrested when you were innocent and someone said the same things you just said.
