Immunity for What?

This just in from the same court that approved same sex marriages: the Capitol City's top cop is immune from charges he should have fired an officer who strip searches women during traffic stops.

Think about that.

Flashing red lights in your rear view mirror, and the next thing you know, you're naked, standing alongside Interstate 495 in Middleboro, now some 12 years ago. Not only are you naked in front of god and everyone, you get strip searched.

Well, that's exactly what happened to Mary Jane Clancy. She filed a lawsuit against former Massachusetts superintendent of state troopers, William McCabe, but the Massachusetts Supreme Court granted him immunity.

The "Strip Search" cop wasn't so lucky. In 1995, State Trooper Ramon Rivera Jr. was fired from the state police and convicted of violating civil rights, attempted extortion, and open and gross lewdness. He was sentenced to six to 10 years in prison.
