Things aren’t looking too groovy in the US right now. The supreme court has decided that anyone can be strip-searched upon arrest for any offence whatsoever. (Cue sexual bullying by the police.) This comes after two recent pieces of legislation that (i) let anyone be arrested forever at any time (the NDAA), and the ‘trespass bill’, which gives you a ten year sentence for protesting near anyone with secret service protection, which presumably means anyone in power (HR 347). You can read more about these horrors from Naomi Wolf here.
