More from the Beat with Officer Friendly

Marlene Tapia was arrested in New Mexico on a drug possession charge. She was then strip-searched and officers believed that she had hidden drugs within her vagina. Instead of driving her to medical personnel, the officers wanted to “teach her a lesson” so they proceeded to spray Mace, the anti-personnel chemical, on and into her vagina causing severe chemical burns.

This has been but one in a series of outrageous violations of the rights of the accused and assaults on bodily integrity and privacy by police officers in the southwestern States.
