Citizens are Being Gang-Raped by police trying to charge them with Felony Possession after failing drug test
In South Dakota, it is a felony to fail a drug test. Yes, you heard me correctly. If an officer has reason to believe you do drugs for any reason, he can request that you urinate in a cup, and if that drug test comes up positive, you will be convicted of felony possession.
This highly controversial law has recently morphed into something quite different because the SD State Supreme Court ruled that given the wording of the law, there is no difference in a drug outside the body or inside.
Some will tell you to just refuse to take the drug test, and that is the best option, but as Dirk Landon Sparks found out, the police are authorized to catheterize you in order to draw a urine sample once a search warrant is signed by a judge. The officers doing this have been cited as saying “either piss in the cup or we’ll take you down to the hospital and stick something up your dick.”
Dirk Landon Sparks is calling for the evidence against him, his forcibly obtained urine, to be quashed and inadmissible due to the manner in which it was obtained.
According to a motion filed on May 16th, attorneys for Sparks argued that forced catheterization was not explicitly authorized by the judge in the warrant for blood or urine, meaning that Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures were violated.
In the motion, the attorneys also argue that catheterization is always an unreasonable intrusion into the body of an individual given that urinating in a cup is non-intrusive and that drawing a blood sample is less intrusive than catheterization. Given the wording of the 4th amendment, no unreasonable searches are legal.
The practice of forced catheterization in South Dakota has been going on for years according to multiple sources, as well as the practice of charging South Dakotans with felony possession in the event of failing a drug test.
What is most disturbing about the “ingestion law,” as they call it, is that a person can ingest marijuana legally while in Colorado, but the moment they enter South Dakota, they are then breaking the law.
People in the United States always think they have the most freedoms of all countries, but I don’t know of any other industrialized nations that are willing to forcibly stick medical instruments into the genitalia of its citizens. That’s a horrible practice and it needs to stop. This country is far better than this, or so I once thought.
It’s bad enough to be charged with felony possession upon the failure of a state-mandated urine test, but it’s much worse when the officers choose to not draw blood, but instead follow through with the threats of “sticking medical instruments” in people’s “dick.” In fact, since the officers always have the option to draw blood, but instead choose catheterization, just shows they enjoy medically raping the people they are sworn to protect.
Now it begs the question: how free are you when your government can molest you in such a way? I’ll let you answer that question in the comment section below.
